History

  • Die Urfassungen der Martyria Polycarpi et Pionii und das Corpus Polycarpianumby Otto Zwierlein; Daniel Kölligan

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 210.00

    Using ancient Armenian version, it has been possible to retrieve the original Greek short version of both martyrologies. The textual layers can be interpreted as a mirror of the norms of Christian behavior during the period of persecution. The critical editions are followed in Volume 2 by a textual history and reconstruction. more...

  • Andrew Melville (1545–1622)by Roger A. Mason; Steven J. Reid

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 134.95

    With the exception of John Knox, no one did more to shape the Scottish Reformation than Andrew Melville. Remembered chiefly as a firebrand defender of radical Presbyterianism and reformer of the Scottish university system, his broader contributions to the cultural development of early modern Scotland - his poetry and prose - have largely been marginalised... more...

  • Richard Baxter's Reformed Liturgyby Glen J. Segger

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    The English Civil War and its aftermath was a time of human devastation, political uncertainty and religious instability. The Church of England had not witnessed such liturgical innovation since Thomas Cranmer, and would not see such creativity again until the end of the twentieth century - at least in terms of liturgical texts. Segger examines the... more...

  • Witches and Witchcraftby David Nash

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 7.95

    In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, entire communities, particularly in central Europe were gripped by a fear of witches and witchcraft, and pursued witches in order to bring them to justice. Professor David Nash unlocks the sometimes opaque history of the phenomenon of witchcraft in Britain, Europe and America. The book explores the development... more...

  • A Genetic History of New England Theology (Routledge Revivals)by Frank Hugh Foster

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 55.95

    First published in 1907, this text provides a scientific treatment of New England theology and American dogmatic history. Frank Hugh Foster analyses the eighteenth-century rise of the school of New England theology, which became the dominant school of thought in New England congregationalism and, as argued by Foster, a ?world phenomenon?. The chapters... more...

  • A Christian in Togaby Claudio Moreschini

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 67.61

    Boethius is apparently the first Christian writer who was not engaged in dogmatic and theological problems from an ecclesiastical point of view. Boethius hadn't any ecclesiastical office, but was engaged in politics under King Theoderic in Italy, and from his youth he had devoted himself to Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy. Some of his medieval... more...

    Abingdon Press 2014; US$ 44.99

    Spanning more than 500 years, this illustrated book covers the rich history of Christianity in Latin America. The authors use an analytical framework as they describe the institutional religious history for the period covered in that chapter, providing the context to look at other concurrent though non-institutional developments within Christianity.... more...

  • Sacral Kingship Between Disenchantment and Re-enchantmentby Ronald G. Asch

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    France and England are often seen as monarchies standing at opposite ends of the spectrum of seventeenth-century European political culture. On the one hand the Bourbon monarchy took the high road to absolutism, while on the other the Stuarts never quite recovered from the diminution of their royal authority following the regicide of Charles I in... more...
