History

  • Killing Historyby Robert M. Price

    Prometheus Books 2014; US$ 11.99

    Killing Jesus , the bestselling blockbuster by Bill O'Reilly, claims to be a purely historical account of the events in the life of Jesus leading up to his crucifixion. New Testament scholar Robert M. Price (a member of the Jesus Seminar) shows how unfounded this claim is in this critical review of O'Reilly's work. In fact, he judges the book to be... more...

  • The Bible's Cutting Room Floorby Joel M. Hoffman

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 26.99

    The Bible you usually read is not the complete story. Some holy writings were left out for political or theological reasons, others simply because of the physical restrictions of ancient bookmaking technology. At times, the compilers of the Bible skipped information that they assumed everyone knew. Some passages were even omitted by accident. In... more...

  • Political Augustinianismby Michael J. S. Bruno

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 38.99

    The thought of Saint Augustine stands as one of the central fountainheads of not only theology but Western social and political theory. Political Augustinianism examines modern political readings of Augustine, providing an extensive account of the pivotal French, British, and American strands of interpretation. Bruno guides readers through these modern... more...

  • Deviant Calvinismby Oliver D. Crisp

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 33.99

    Deviant Calvinism seeks to show that the Reformed tradition is much broader and more variegated than is often thought. Crisp?s work focuses on a cluster of theological issues concerning the scope of salvation and shows that there are important ways in which current theological discussion of these topics can be usefully resourced by attention to theologians... more...

  • Public Religious Disputation in England, 1558–1626by Joshua Rodda

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    With a focus on England from the accession of Elizabeth I to the mid-1620s, this book examines the practice of public, academic religious disputation between opposing Catholic, Protestant and nonconformist puritan divines. Introducing a form of discourse hitherto neglected, the volume works to rehabilitate a body of material only previously examined... more...

  • Storm of Wordsby Monte Harrell Hampton

    University of Alabama Press 2014; US$ 59.95

    Storm of Words is a study of the ways that southern Presbyterians in the wake of the Civil War contended with a host of cultural and theological questions, chief among them developments in natural history and evolution. Southern Presbyterian theologians enjoyed a prominent position in antebellum southern culture. Respected for both their erudition... more...

  • Boethius as a Paradigm of Late Ancient Thoughtby Andreas Kirchner; Thomas Böhm; Thomas Jürgasch

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Boethius is largely underrated in the history of Western thought. Scholarship often regarded him and his era ? Late Antiquity ?as mere intermediaries between Antiquity and the Middle Ages. This volume shows that Boethius and his time can be appreciated in their own right. more...

  • Das Kollegiatstift St. Petri zu Bautzen von der Gründung bis 1569. Die Bistümer der Kirchenprovinz Magdeburg. Das (exemte) Bistum Meißen 1by Hermann Kinne

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 238.00

    This work examines the cathedral chapter of St. Petri in Bautzen from its founding prior to 1221 through 1569. With the transfer of the apostolic administrature to the chapter of Bautzen, a new era began for this institution. After the Meissen chapter, Bautzen was the diocese?s most significant spiritual institution. The focus of the study is on the... more...

  • The Shepherd of Hermas in Latinby Christian Tornau; Paolo Cecconi

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The Shepherd of Hermas is a very important witness of the early history of the Church. Its Latin translation, the Vulgata, is crucial for any critical edition of Hermas work because no complete sources of the original Greek text survived. Following on the last critical edition of the Vulgata (Hilgenfeld 1873), this work offers a more modern and complete... more...

  • Räume und Identitätenby Dietmar Schiersner

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 196.00

    What was the nature of life ? and death ? in an 18th century Catholic convent? From an anthropological and cultural perspective, Dietmar Schiersner examines the lives of the sisters in sickness and in health, their clothing, living spaces and spaces of the imagination (reading, writing, and music-making), and the rhythms of their lives: days, years,... more...
