The fragility of consciousness : faith, reason, and the human good
Lawrence, Frederick G., author
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, [2017]
Martin Heidegger and the hermeneutic revolution -- Hans-Georg Gadamer and the hermeneutic revolution -- Gadamer and Lonergan on Augustine's Verbum Cordis - the heart of postmodern hermeneutics -- A Jewish and Christian approach to the problematic of Jerusalem and Athens: Leo Strauss and Bernard Lonergan -- Voegelin and Gadamer: continental philosophers inspired by Plato and Aristotle -- "Transcendence from Within": Benedict XVI and Jürgen Habermas on the dialogue between secular reason and religious faith -- The fragility of consciousness: Lonergan and the postmodern concern for the other -- The recovery of theology in a political mode: the example of Ernest L. Fortin, AA -- The economic good of order and culture in relation to solidarity, subsidiarity, and responsibility -- The human good and Christian conversion -- Grace and friendship: postmodern political theology and God as conversational -- Growing in faith as the eyes of being-in-love with God.

"The Fragility of Consciousness is the first published collection of his essays and contains several of his best known writings as well as unpublished work. The essays in this volume exhibit a long interdisciplinary engagement with the relationship between faith and reason in the context of the crisis of culture that has marked twentieth- and twenty-first century thought and practice. Frederick G. Lawrence, with his profound and generous commitment to the intellectual life of the church, has produced a body of work that engages with Heidegger, Gadamer, Habermas, Ricoeur, Strauss, Voegelin, and Benedict XVI among others. These essays also explore various themes such as the role of religion in a secular age, political theology, economics, neo-Thomism, Christology, and much more. In an age marked by social, cultural, political, and ecclesial fragmentation, Lawrence models a more generous way--one that prioritizes friendship, conversation, and understanding above all else."--

A maid with a dragon : the cult of St Margaret of Antioch in medieval England
Dresvina, Juliana, author
Oxford : Published for The British Academy by Oxford University Press, 2016
This is the first comprehensive interdisciplinary study of the cult of St Margaret of Antioch in medieval England. Margaret was one of the most famous female saints of both the Catholic world and of Eastern Christianity (where she was known as St Marina). Her legend is remembered for her confrontation with a dragon-shaped devil, who allegedly swallowed Margaret and then burst asunder. This episode became firmly established in iconography, making her one of the most frequently represented saints. Margaret was supposedly martyred in the late 3rd century, but apart from the historically problematic legend there is no evidence concerning her in other contemporary sources. The sudden appearance of her name in liturgical manuscripts in the late 8th century is connected with the dispersal of her relics at that time. The cult grew in England from Anglo-Saxon times, with over 200 churches dedicated to Margaret (second only to Mary among female saints), and hundreds of images and copies of her life known to have been made.0The book examines Greek, Latin, Old English, Middle English and Anglo-Norman versions of Margaret's live, their mouvance and cultural context, providing editions of the hitherto unpublished texts. By considering these versions, the iconographic evidence, their patronage and audience, the monograph traces the changes of St Margaret's story through the eight centuries before the Reformation. The book also considers the further trajectory of the legend as reflected in popular fairy-tales and contemporary cultural stereotypes. Special attention is given to the interpretation of St Margaret's demonic encounter, central to the legend's iconography and theology.

Biblical truths : the meaning of scripture in the twenty-first century
Martin, Dale B., 1954- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2017
A leading biblical scholar's landmark work challenges the historical realism that has dominated the discipline for more than two centuries How can a modern person, informed by science and history, continue to recite the traditional creeds and confessions of the Christian church? What does the Bible mean and how do we verify biblical truths? In this groundbreaking book, a leading biblical scholar urges readers to be more creative interpreters of biblical texts, mapping out an alternative way of reading that is not first and foremost about understanding what those texts would have meant for the original authors and readers. Limiting our study to the ancient meaning of the text, he argues, has produced either bad history, or bad theology, or both. One cannot derive robustly orthodox Christian doctrine or theology from a mere "historical" interpretation of the Bible. Martin offers instead theological readings of the New Testament that are faithful to Christian orthodoxy as generally understood, but without attempting a "foundationalist" understanding of the meaning of the text.0His provocative and ambitious book demonstrates how theology and scripture can remain vital in the twenty-first century.

History, politics and the Bible from the Iron Age to the media age : essays in honour of Keith W. Whitelam
edited by Jim West and James Crossley
New York, NY, USA : Bloomsbury T&T Clark, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
Introduction: Keith Whitelam in context / James Crossley and Jim West -- Maximalist and/or minimalist approaches in recent representations of ancient Israelite and Judaean history / Ingrid Hjelm -- The emergence of Israel again / Robert B. Coote -- A plea for an historical anthropology of ancient Palestine / Emanuel Pfoh -- Mapping Palestine / Philip R. Davies -- A sectarian group called Israel : historiography and cultural memory / Niels Peter Lemche -- The history of Israel-without the Bible : a thought experiment / Jim West -- The present crisis in biblical scholarship / John Van Seters -- The perpetuation of racial assumptions in biblical studies / Deane Galbraith -- Made in Sheffield : the first dictionary of the ancient Hebrew language / David J.A. Clines -- God and the state : the Bible and David Cameron's authority / James Crossley.

As biblical studies becomes increasingly fragmented, this collection of essays brings together a number of leading scholars in order to show how historical reconstruction, philology, metacriticism, and reception history can be part of a collective vision for the future of the field. This collection of essays focuses more specifically on critical questions surrounding the construction of ancient Israel(s), 'minimalism', the ongoing significance of lexicography, the development of early Judaism, orientalism, and the use of the Bible in contemporary political discourses.

Holy Rus' : the Rebirth of Orthodoxy in the New Russia
Burgess, John P., 1954-
New Haven : Yale University Press [2017]
A fascinating, vivid, and on-the-ground account of Russian Orthodoxy's resurgence. A bold experiment is taking place in Russia. After a century of being scarred by militant, atheistic communism, the Orthodox Church has become Russia's largest and most significant nongovernmental organization. As it has returned to life, it has pursued a vision of reclaiming Holy Rus': that historical yet mythical homeland of the eastern Slavic peoples; a foretaste of the perfect justice, peace, harmony, and beauty for which religious believers long; and the glimpse of heaven on earth that persuaded Prince Vladimir to accept Orthodox baptism in Crimea in A.D. 988. Through groundbreaking initiatives in religious education, social ministry, historical commemoration, and parish life, the Orthodox Church is seeking to shape a new, post-communist national identity for Russia. In this eye-opening and evocative book, John Burgess examines Russian Orthodoxy's resurgence from a grassroots level, providing Western readers with an enlightening, inside look at the new Russia.

The Cistercian Fathers and their monastic theology : initiation into the monastic tradition 8
Merton, Thomas, 1915-1968, author
Collegeville, Minnesota : Cistercian Publications, [2016]
These conferences, presented by Thomas Merton to the novices at the Abbey of Gethsemani in 1963- 964, focus mainly on the life and writings of his great Cistercian predecessor, St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090- 153). Guiding his students through Bernard Marian sermons, his treatise On the Love of God, his controversy with Peter Abelard, and above all his great series of sermons on the Song of Songs, Merton reveals why Bernard was the major religious and cultural figure in Europe during the first half of the twelfth century and why he has remained one of the most influential spiritual theologians of Western Christianity from his own day until the present.
