    This volume aims to understand religious aspects of dress in the ancient world by examining a diverse range of religious sources, including literature, art, performance, coinage, economic markets, and memories.

  • Challenging Orthodoxiesby Sigrun Haude; Melinda S. Zook

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

    This collection, a testament to the work of Hilda L. Smith, confronts orthodoxy in social and cultural, scientific and intellectual, and political and legal traditions, to demonstrate how women of all social classes could challenge the conventional thinking of their time as well as the ways in which they have been traditionally portrayed by scholars.... more...

  • Metrical Psalmody in Print and Practiceby Timothy Duguid

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    During the Reformation, the Book of Psalms became one of the most well-known books of the Bible. This was particularly true in Britain, where people of all backgrounds memorized and sang poetic versifications of the psalms. This book is the first to consider both English and Scottish metrical psalmody, comparing the two traditions in print and practice.... more...

  • Andrew Melville (1545–1622)by Roger A. Mason; Steven J. Reid

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 134.95

    With the exception of John Knox, no one did more to shape the Scottish Reformation than Andrew Melville. Remembered chiefly as a firebrand defender of radical Presbyterianism and reformer of the Scottish university system, his broader contributions to the cultural development of early modern Scotland - his poetry and prose - have largely been marginalised... more...

  • Richard Baxter's Reformed Liturgyby Glen J. Segger

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    The English Civil War and its aftermath was a time of human devastation, political uncertainty and religious instability. The Church of England had not witnessed such liturgical innovation since Thomas Cranmer, and would not see such creativity again until the end of the twentieth century - at least in terms of liturgical texts. Segger examines the... more...

  • Archbishop Poleby John Edwards

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    This fresh exploration of the life, work and writing of Archbishop Pole, focuses particularly on Pole’s final years (1556-58) as Archbishop of Canterbury. Stressing the events and character of Pole's 'English' life, up to his exile in the 1530s, as well as in his final years in England, this book explores his close relationship with... more...

  • Witches and Witchcraftby David Nash

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 7.95

    In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, entire communities, particularly in central Europe were gripped by a fear of witches and witchcraft, and pursued witches in order to bring them to justice. Professor David Nash unlocks the sometimes opaque history of the phenomenon of witchcraft in Britain, Europe and America. The book explores the development... more...

  • Fünfzehn Minuten Todesgefahrby Damaris Kofmehl

    'fontis 2014; US$ 11.99

    Schüsse und gellende Schreie zerreißen die morgendliche Stille in der internationalen Schule am Fuße des Himalajas. Für 150 Kinder beginnen die fünfzehn schrecklichsten Minuten ihres Lebens.

  • Faithful Bodiesby Heather Miyano Kopelson

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 67.50

    In the seventeenth-century English Atlantic, religious beliefs and practices played a central role in creating racial identity. English Protestantism provided a vocabulary and structure to describe and maintain boundaries between insider and outsider. In this path-breaking study, Heather Miyano Kopelson peels back the layers of conflicting definitions... more...

  • A Genetic History of New England Theology (Routledge Revivals)by Frank Hugh Foster

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 55.95

    First published in 1907, this text provides a scientific treatment of New England theology and American dogmatic history. Frank Hugh Foster analyses the eighteenth-century rise of the school of New England theology, which became the dominant school of thought in New England congregationalism and, as argued by Foster, a ?world phenomenon?. The chapters... more...
