    BRILL 2005; US$ 178.00

    What is meant by knowing God? By sounding the work of John Calvin and Karl Barth as mirrors of reflection and experience, justice is done to the tension between the premodern and postkantian situation and a stimulus is given for a contemporary position. more...

  • Believe Not Every Spiritby Moshe Sluhovsky

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 38.00

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 115.00

    Based on refractions of earlier beliefs, modern angels - at once terrible and comforting, frighteningly other and reassuringly beneficent - have acquired a powerful symbolic value. This interdisciplinary study looks at how humans conversed with angels in medieval and early modern Europe, and how they explained and represented these conversations. more...
