Lived Religion And Everyday Life In Early Modern Hagiographic Material
Author: Jenni Kuuliala

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book discusses the ways in which early modern hagiographic sources can be used to study lived religion and everyday life from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century. For several decades, saints’ lives, other spiritual biographies, miracle narratives, canonisation processes, iconography, and dramas, have been widely utilised in studies on medieval religious practices and social history. This fruitful material has however been overlooked in studies of the early modern period, despite the fact that it witnessed an unprecedented growth in the volume of hagiographic material. The contributors to this volume address this, and illuminate how early modern hagiographic material can be used for the study of topics such as religious life, the social history of medicine, survival strategies, domestic violence, and the religious experience of slaves.

In recent years, profound changes have affected the way people view the role of religion and spirituality in the life cycle. For many people, spirituality, always considered an essential part of religion, has become an interest no longer tied to organized religion.

It also applies the concept of implicit religion to show how the least easily observed aspects of religion are at work in the growth of personality.

Religion And Public Life
Author: Tom Butler
Publisher: A&C Black
Release Date: 2011-12-01
Pages: 216
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

For more than twenty years, Bishop Tom Butler has related religious belief to the events of public life, both national and global, in regular contributions to BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day. Each 'Thought' is prompted by current events, without knowing how the news will develop, thereby illustrating how religion relates to contemporary life and how the insights it offers may develop over time. Here, Tom Butler explores themes ranging from The Gulf Wars and Terrorism via Science, Medical Ethics and Political Life to Religion itself. Drawing on (and incorporating) a selection of Thought for the Day scripts covering a twenty-year period, he charts the developing relationship between religion and public life and explores the Church's role of bringing religious values and insights to bear on topical issues and restating the public's hopes and fears in religious language.

Literature  Religion  And The Evolution Of Culture  1660   1780
Author: Howard D. Weinbrot
Publisher: JHU Press
Release Date: 2013-05-17
Pages: 392
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Literature, Religion, and the Evolution of Culture, 1660–1780 chronicles changes in contentious politics and religion and their varied representations in British letters from the mid-seventeenth to the late eighteenth century. An uncertain trend toward tolerance and away from painful discord significantly influenced authors who reflected on and enhanced germane aspects of British literary and intellectual life. The movement was stymied during the painful Gordon Riots in June 1780, from which Britain needed to repair itself. Howard D. Weinbrot's broad-ranging interdisciplinary study considers sermons, satire, political and religious polemic, Anglo-French relations, biblical and theological commentary, Methodism, legal history, and the novel. Literature, Religion, and the Evolution of Culture, 1660–1780 analyzes the texts and contexts of several major and minor authors, including Daniel Defoe, Charles Dickens, Olaudah Equiano, Maria De Fleury, Lord George Gordon, Nathaniel Lancaster, Henry Sacheverell, Tobias Smollett, and Edward Synge.

Religion In The Lives Of African Americans
Author: Robert Joseph Taylor
Publisher: SAGE
Release Date: 2004
Pages: 300
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Deriving conclusions from the National Survey of Black Americans and several additional wide-ranging surveys, Religion in the Lives of African Americans examines broad issues: patterns of religious involvement; the functions of religion in coping, social support, etc.; and the relationships between religion and physical and mental health and well-being. Since the early 1900s, there has been ongoing academic interest in the nature, patterns, and functions of religion in the lives of African Americans because of the pervasiveness and persistence of the religious context in the lives of individuals, families and communities for this population group. This book enhances and furthers such academic interest by presenting a comprehensive, integrated analysis based upon rigorous, systematic survey research. The authors provide readers with an authoritative profile of the importance of religious involvement in relation to diverse forms of behaviours, attitudes and perceptions.

Religion  Immediate Experience And The Mediacy Of Research
Author: Hans-Günter Heimbrock
Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
Release Date: 2007
Pages: 283
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The volume focuses on the fundamental problem of the fundamental tension between experience and empirical science, which has been central to modern religious research since the classic approaches of Friedrich Schleiermacher and William James: How can religious experience that is lived directly be theoretically described and critically classified so that it does not follow the conceptual reconstruction lost in the way of analysis? The twelve articles in this English-language volume deal with this question in an interdisciplinary discussion. Attempts to answer questions are presented by leading international representatives of the respective discipline, which convincingly bring in the specialist perspectives from theology, philosophy of religion, cultural anthropology and empirical social research. This also brings to bear the breadth of religious experience from ecclesiastically and culturally diverse contexts in Europe, North America and Africa.

Religion Of Reason

Publisher: Mesora of NY Inc
Release Date: 2011-08-06
Pages: 413
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Is Torah mystical… or rational, just like God’s natural laws? It’s time a book unveiled the truth. Is Torah like all other religions: incomprehensible mysticism, as Kabbalists suggest…or perfectly rational? Religion of Reason not only unveils widespread “Jewish” mystical beliefs as false, but true Torah insights are presented in their rational form…just like God’s natural laws. No powers exist besides God. And as Ibn Ezra writes, God prohibits belief in mysticism, for reasons you will learn. Talmudic and Torah sections are explained metaphorically as our Rishonim say they must be understood, offering astonishing and pleasing insights. Finally, Jews can understand the falsehoods they have accepted and abandon them in place of true Torah, gaining a deep appreciation for God’s wisdom.
