  • Between the Image and the Wordby Trevor Hart

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 39.95

    The central contention of Christian faith is that in the incarnation the eternal Word or Logos of God himself has taken flesh, so becoming for us the image of the invisible God.

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In eighteenth-century literature, negative representations of Catholic nuns and convents were pervasive. Yet, during the politico-religious crises initiated by the French Revolution, a striking literary shift took place as British writers championed the cause of nuns, lauded their socially relevant work, and addressed the attraction of the convent... more...
