The Things in Heaven and Earth: Exploring the Supernatural

by

New. ''A numberless series of sayings and lives of the saints bears witness to the reality of the light, so that one would have to be mad to deny the certainty of these appearances of the light that is full of grace'' (Pavel Florensky, in The Pillar and Ground of the Truth). Well, if not mad, then at least forgetful, or numb, or dull--and certainly all of us but a chosen few share in one of these conditions most the time. Hence the great value of a collection such as this, which reminds in ...

Edition: Revised edition Binding: Paper Back Publisher: Oxford University Press Date published: 2002 ISBN-13: 9780199250035 ISBN: 0199250030

Description: New. In this provocative study, Abraham (Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Perkins School of Religion) reviews the various criteria of truth Christian traditions have set forth, 'from the Fathers to feminism. ' By Abraham's reckoning, the early Church didn't limit its canon to a single criterion, whether scripture or a combination of written and unwritten tradtion, but held to a quite broad and fluid sense of canon as a composite of many sources of the Faith. A canon (list) of Scripture ... Read More

Description: New. In 1960, the French medievalist Philippe Ariès inaugurated the history of childhood as a serious field of study with the publication of his book L'enfant et la vie familiale sous l'Ancien Régime (translated two years later as Centuries of Childhood). Famously known for the abrupt statement that 'in medieval society the idea of childhood did not exist'-Ariès established the framework for the field, advancing continued scholarship through controversy as much as anything. For years the ... Read More

Binding: Paper Back Publisher: Crossroad General Interest Date published: 2004 ISBN-13: 9780824519445 ISBN: 0824519442

Description: New. St. Gregory of Nyssa (''Father of Fathers of the Church'' according to the Seventh Ecumenical Council) is among the foundational figures in the expression of Christian doctrine and spirituality. His influence simply cannot be exaggerated. The shy and retiring member of the Cappadocian triumvirate, he was perhaps the most ''multilingual''-conversant in mystical, speculative, and dogmatic theology. Duke University professor J. Warren Smith's new study is invaluable on several counts: It ... Read More

Binding: Paper Back Publisher: Oxford Univ Pr Date published: 2005 ISBN-13: 9780195306491 ISBN: 019530649X

Description: New. These days, despising America and Americans is a favorite international (and even national) pastime. What many people may not realize, suggest Barry and Judith Rubin, is that an historical continuity and evolution of anti-Americanism coincides with the foundation and development of the United States from its discovery by European explorers and subsequent independence from these same European powers. Co-authors of an acclaimed political biography of Yasir Arafat and widely regarded for ... Read More

Edition: 2nd edition Binding: Paper Back Publisher: University Of Chicago Press Date published: 1998 ISBN-13: 9780226155111 ISBN: 0226155110

Description: New. Professor of medieval and early history Gerhard Dohrn-Van Rossum might suggest (if pressed) it was the clock that fueled the Industrial Revolution, not the steam engine. Scholars of European history concur that the shift in time consciousness began in the Middle Ages with the transition from agrarian to industrial society and that ever since, the patterns of daily life have been dominated to a high degree by the constraints and pressures of time. But we'd be hard put to find any volume ... Read More

Description: New. Grant is one of the foremost scholars of second-century Gnosticism, the diverse movement with which St. Irenaeus was principally concerned in his massive Against Heresies. He has selected portions of that work to critically render into English, based on a careful reconstruction of the original Greek underlying the famous French patristic collection, Sources Chretiennes.214.
