  • Catholic Pentecostalism and the Paradoxes of Africanizationby Ludovic Lado

    BRILL 2009; US$ 130.00

    The anthropological literature on religious innovation and resistance in African Christianity has tended to focus almost exclusively on what have come to be known as African Independent Churches. This book explores the dialectics between 'Pentecostalization' and 'Africanization' within contemporary African Catholicism. more...

  • Greek Sacred Lawby E. Lupu

    BRILL 2009; US$ 226.00

    A guide to the corpus of Greek sacred law and its contents.

  • Pentadic Redaction in the Manichaean Kephalaiaby Timothy Pettipiece

    BRILL 2009; US$ 144.00

    This study identifies a significant redactional tendency whereby the compilers of the "Kephalaia" sought to clarify ambiguities in a oecanonicala Manichaean tradition by means of five-part numerical series, thereby challenging the conventional wisdom of Manichaean scholarship about the consistency of Manichaean doctrine. 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. The Canadian story highlights important developments that illustrate the transnational and innovative qualities of the movement. more...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • History of the Christian Churchby Williston Walker

    Scribner 2014; Not Available

    Since publication of the first edition in 1918, A History of the Christian Church by Williston Walker has enjoyed outstanding success and recognition as a classic in the field. Written by an eminent theologian, it combines in its narrative a rare blend of clarity, unity, and balance. In light of significant advances in scholarship in recent years,... more...

  • Beter, Mönche und Gelehrteby Marc Witzenbacher

    Butzon & Bercker 2014; US$ 11.19

    Biografien haben Konjunktur. Das "Leben der anderen", ihr Erfolg und ihr Scheitern, spornen an, das eigene Leben zu bedenken und einer kritischen Reflexion zu unterziehen. Schon seit früher Zeit erzählen sich die Christen vom Leben der Heiligen und Märtyrer. Das Buch, das Lebensbilder aus der Rubrik "Engagiertes Christsein" in der... more...
