Download or read The Saint and the Chopped Up Baby PDF, written by Laura Ackerman Smoller and published by Cornell University Press. This book was released on 2014-01-21 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Vincent Ferrer (1350–1419), a celebrated Dominican preacher from Valencia, was revered as a living saint during his lifetime, receiving papal canonization within fifty years of his death. In The Saint and the Chopped-Up Baby, Laura Ackerman Smoller recounts the fascinating story of how Vincent became the subject of widespread devotion, ranging from the saint's tomb in Brittany to cult centers in Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and Latin America, where Vincent is still venerated today. Along the way, Smoller traces the long and sometimes contentious process of establishing a stable image of a new saint. Vincent came to be epitomized by a singularly arresting miracle tale in which a mother kills, chops up, and cooks her own baby, only to have the child restored to life by the saint’s intercession. This miracle became a key emblem in the official portrayal of the saint promoted by the papal court and the Dominican order, still haunted by the memory of the Great Schism (1378–1414) that had rent the Catholic Church for nearly forty years. Vincent, however, proved to be a potent religious symbol for others whose agendas did not necessarily align with those of Rome. Whether shoring up the political legitimacy of Breton or Aragonese rulers, proclaiming a new plague saint, or trumpeting their own holiness, individuals imposed their own meanings on the Dominican saint. Drawing on nuanced readings of canonization inquests, hagiography, liturgical sources, art, and devotional materials, Smoller tracks these various appropriations from the time of Vincent’s 1455 canonization through the eve of the Enlightenment. In the process, she brings to life a long, raucous discussion ranging over many centuries. The Saint and the Chopped-Up Baby restores the voices of that conversation in all its complexity.

Download or read Folklore Theory in Postwar Germany PDF, written by Sadhana Naithani and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2014-02-04 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Can the study of folklore survive brutal wars and nationalized misappropriations? Does folklore make sense in an age of fearsome technology? These are two of several questions this book addresses with specific and profound reference to the history of folklore studies in Germany. There in the early nineteenth century in the ideological context of romantic nationalism, the works of the Brothers Grimm pioneered the discipline. The sublimation of folklore studies with the nation’s political history reached a peak in the 1930s under the Nazi regime. This book takes a full look at what happened to folklore after the end of World War II and the defeat of the Nazis. A special focus on Lutz Röhrich (1923–2006), whose work spans the decades from 1955 to 2006, makes this book a unique window into a monumental reclamation. In 1945 Röhrich returned from the warfront at the age of twenty-three, a wounded amputee. Resuming his education, he published his seminal Märchen und Wirklichkeit (Folktale and Reality) in 1956. Naithani argues that through this and a huge body of scholarship on folktale, folksong, proverbs, and riddles over the next decades, Röhrich transformed folklore scholarship by critically challenging the legacies of Romanticism and Nazism in German folklore work. Sadhana Naithani’s book is the first full-length treatment of this extraordinary German scholar written in English.

Download or read Strangers in Boston PDF, written by T. S. Mann and published by . This book was released on 2019 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Sometimes, when you see something strange, you have to choose. Do you ignore it and put it out of your mind? Or acknowledge it, and perhaps become a little bit stranger yourself from the experience? But then, on a rare occasion, you might see something BEYOND strange, something that utterly violates the natural order. And then, your choice is more serious and the repercussions more severe. Do you ignore what’s in front of you and hope it doesn't kill you in your willful blindness? Or do you accept the truth of what you've seen and, in the process, become something TRULY strange. So strange that you fall out of the world you knew. Your family and friends don't know you. Your house key no longer fits its lock. Your driver's license is now just a blank plastic card. You become a citizen of a hidden realm of magic and horror, one visible to normal people only out of the corner of the eye. You have become a Stranger. Matt Sullivan, a high-school jock from Boston, had such an encounter when he and his brother Luke crossed paths with an insane Lovecraft-quoting witch who tried to sacrifice them for an evil, nearly incomprehensible purpose. He survived, but as a result, he "went strange" and passed into a new and frightening world. A world where his own mother doesn't recognize him. Where enigmatic techno-mages scheme and plan in their hidden base beneath MIT, while sword-wielding magical inquisitors prowl the streets looking for enemies of their faith to destroy. Where the mysterious "Wizard of Fenway" holds secrets that will change Matt's life forever. And where evil forces want to use his missing brother as a weapon against Reality itself. But it's also a world where Matt finds that he has actual magical powers at his command ... provided they don't kill him or drive him insane.

Download or read The Mentally Ill in America A History of Their Care and Treatment from Colonial Times PDF, written by Albert Deutsch and published by Read Books Ltd. This book was released on 2013-04-16 with total page 574 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mr. Deutsch’s book, the preparation of which has been made possible by the American Foundation for Mental Hygiene, might be described in a very few words by saying that it traces the evolution of a cultural pattern as represented by the way in which people through the years have thought and felt about the so-called insane. It is an exceedingly illuminating presentation and because of the dramatic material with which it deals, it may well prove to be a spearhead for the penetration of important social facts and the understanding of social processes which, presented with less appealing or less startling illustration, might fail to attract attention.

Download or read The Supernatural Index PDF, written by Michael Ashley and published by Greenwood Publishing Group. This book was released on 1995 with total page 958 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Supernatural Index is the first index to all known anthologies of supernatural, fantasy, and weird fiction. It covers over 2,100 such books, indexing each volume by contents, author, and title. Books range from 1813 to date and therefore provide a complete history of the horror fiction field. Birth and death dates, along with pseudonyms, are provided for more than 7,700 authors; and for all the rougly 21,300 stories, every attempt has been made to provide original publication details. Supernatural fiction continues to be of interest to modern readers, though many of the most frequently anthologized ghost stories were written during the Victorian era. Because so much supernatural fiction has been published as short stories, anthologies have long been a useful means of bringing supernatural literature to the readers. This reference is the first index to all known anthologies of supernatural, fantasy, and weird fiction. Included are entries for more than 2,100 anthologies from 1813 to the present. Many of these anthologies have never been listed previously in bibliographies, and the volume even includes citations for rare Victorian works. Entries provide original publication sources for reprinted stories, including many from obscure magazines not previously indexed. The book also provides birth and death dates and pseudonyms for more than 7,700 authors of supernatural fiction. Citations may be accessed by editor, author, book title, or story title. Also included is a listing of the contents of each anthology.
Download or read The Anti Pelagian Christology of Augustine of Hippo 396 430 PDF, written by Dominic Keech and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2012-10-18 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Evading established accounts of the development of doctrine in the Patristic era, Augustine's Christology has yet to receive the critical scholarly attention it deserves. This study focuses on Augustine's understanding of the humanity of Christ, as it emerged in dialogue with his anti-Pelagian conception of human freedom and Original Sin. By reinterpreting the Pelagian controversy as a Western continuation of the Origenist controversy before it, Dominic Keech argues that Augustine's reading of Origen lay at the heart of his Christological response to Pelagianism. Augustine is therefore situated within the network of fourth and fifth century Western theologians concerned to defend Origen against accusations of Platonic error and dangerous heresy. Opening with a survey of scholarship on Augustine's Christology and anti-Pelagian theology, Keech proceeds by redrawing the narrative of Augustine's engagement with the issues and personalities involved in the Origenist and Pelagian controversies. He highlights the predominant motif of Augustine's anti-Pelagian Christology: the humanity of Christ, 'in the likeness of sinful flesh' (Rom. 8.3), and argues that this is elaborated through a series of receptions from the work of Ambrose and Origen. The theological problems raised by this Christology - in a Christ who is exempt from sin in a way which unbalances his human nature - are explored by examining Augustine's understanding of Apollinarianism, and his equivocal statements on the origin of the human soul. This forms the backdrop for the book's speculative conclusion, that the inconsistencies in Augustine's Christology can be explained by placing it in an Origenian framework, in which the soul of Christ remains sinless in the Incarnation because of its relationship to the eternal Word, after the fall of souls to embodiment.
