  • Authority and Performanceby Hagit Amirav

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2015; Not Available

    Die Bedeutung der kirchlichen Konzile des 5. und 6. Jahrhunderts kann gar nicht hoch genug eingeschätzt werden.

  • Church and People in the Medieval West, 900-1200by Sarah Hamilton

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 39.95

    During the middle ages, belief in God was the single more important principle for every person, and the all-powerful church was the most important institution.

    This biography, begun by Timothy F. Lull prior to his death and capably finished by Derek Nelson, is marked for its fresh, winsome, and invigorating style?one undoubtedly shaped by years spent in undergraduate and seminary classrooms. In this telling, Luther is an energetic, resilient actor, driven by very human strengths and failings, always wishing... more...

  • Der Reformator Martin Luther 2017by Heinz Schilling

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 98.00

    There is broad historical awareness for Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation in Germany, Europe, and the ?West? as a whole, but given the persistent myths about the persona and work of this reformer, there is a need for a radical re-historicization of Luther and his reception. This compendium seeks to stimulate such a reevaluation... more...

  • Märtyrerliteraturby Hans Reinhard Seeliger; Wolfgang Wischmeyer

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 196.00

    In their functions as memorial and devotional literature, the ?Acts of the Martyrs?, are generally read as historical protocols.

    Fortress Press 2015; US$ 43.99

  • My Flesh Is Meat Indeedby Meredith J. C. Warren

    Fortress Press 2015; US$ 43.99

    In My Flesh Is Meat Indeed, Meredith J. C. Warren shows that the ?bread of life? discourse in John 6:51c-58 bears no Eucharistic overtones. Instead, John plays on Mediterranean cultural expectations about the nature of heroic sacrifice and the sacrificial meal that established the identification of a hero with a deity. Warren traces a literary trope... more...
