    University of California Press 2015; US$ 34.95

    Whereas many textbooks treat the subject of world religions in an apolitical way, as if each religion were a path for individuals seeking wisdom and not a discourse intimately connected with the exercise of power, James W.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    In the seventeenth and eighteenth century the terms ‘atheism’ and ‘deism’ involved fine distinctions that have not always been preserved by later scholars.

  • Ovids verkehrte Exilweltby Simone Seibert

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00
