Most popular at the top

  • Hidden Intercourseby Wouter J. Hanegraaff; Jeffrey J. Kripal

    BRILL 2008; US$ 216.00

    Analyzes the eroticism of the esoteric. This work aims to distinguish fact from fiction - only to find that historical realities are sometimes even stranger than the fantasies. It reveals the outlines of a largely unknown history spanning more than twenty centuries. more...

  • Valentinian Ethics and Paraenetic Discourseby Philip Tite

    BRILL 2009; US$ 179.00

    Offering a fresh assessment of the presence and function of paraenesis within Valentinianism, this book places Valentinian moral exhortation within the context of early Christian moral discourse. Like other Christians, Valentinians were not only interested in ethics, but used moral exhortation to discursively shape social identity. more...

  • Winds From the Northby Michael Wilkinson; Peter Althouse

    BRILL 2010; US$ 146.00

    This book raises important questions about the origins of Pentecostalism including the role of Azusa, missionaries, women, and the controversy surrounding Oneness Pentecostalism and the Latter Rain revival.

  • Isis on the Nile. Egyptian Gods in Hellenistic and Roman Egyptby Laurent Bricault; Miguel John Versluys

    BRILL 2010; US$ 168.00

    The diffusion of the cults of Isis is recently again intensively studied. Research on this fascinating phenomenon has traditionally been characterised by its focus on L'Egypte hors d'Egypte, while developments in Hellenistic and Roman Egypt itself were often seen as belonging to a different domain. This volume tries to overcome that unhealthy... more...

  • Jainismby Jeffery D Long

    I.B.Tauris 2013; US$ 26.00

    Jainism evokes images of monks wearing face-masks to protect insects and mico-organisms from being inhaled. Or of Jains sweeping the ground in front of them to ensure that living creatures are not inadvertently crushed: a practice of non-violence so radical as to defy easy comprehension. Yet for all its apparent exoticism, Jainism is still little understood... more...

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 149.99

    The Oxford Handbook of Medieval Christianity takes as its subject the beliefs, practices, and institutions of the Christian Church between 400 and 1500AD. It addresses topics ranging from early medieval monasticism to late medieval mysticism, from the material wealth of the Church to the spiritual exercises through which certain believers might attempt... more...

  • Our Churchby Roger Scruton

    Atlantic Books Ltd 2014; US$ 8.74

    For most people in England today, the church is simply the empty building at the end of the road, visited for the first time, if at all, when dead. It offers its sacraments to a population that lives without rites of passage, and which regards the National Health Service rather than the National Church as its true spiritual guardian. In Our... more...

  • Der Erste Weltkrieg und die Christenheitby Martin Greschat

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2013; US$ 24.56

    In allen kriegführenden europäischen Staaten wie auch in den USA herrschte die Überzeugung vor, dass der Erste Weltkrieg als Verteidigungskrieg, als gerechter Krieg geführt wurde, bei dem man Gott auf der eigenen Seite wusste. Diese Überzeugung proklamierten die Europäer auch in ihren Kolonien in Asien und Afrika. Daraus resultierte eine schrittweise... more...
