Clothes and Monasticism in Ancient Christian Egypt (Routledge Studies in Religion)
Clothes and Monasticism in Ancient Christian Egypt (Routledge Studies in Religion)

This book is an exploration of the ideals and values of the ascetic and monastic life, as expressed through clothes. Clothes are often seen as an extension of us as humans, a determinant of who we are and how we experience and interact with the world. In this way, they can play a significant role in the embodied and...

Encyclopedia of Time: Science, Philosophy, Theology, & Culture (Three Volume Set)
Encyclopedia of Time: Science, Philosophy, Theology, & Culture (Three Volume Set)

"With a strong interdisciplinary approach to a subject that does not lend itself easily to the reference format, this work may not seem to support directly academic programs beyond general research, but it is a more thorough and up-to-date treatment than Taylor and Francis’s 1994 Encyclopedia of...

Nietzsche's Protestant Fathers: A Study in Prodigal Christianity
Nietzsche's Protestant Fathers: A Study in Prodigal Christianity

Nietzsche was famously an atheist, despite coming from a strongly Protestant family. This heritage influenced much of his thought, but was it in fact the very thing that led him to his atheism? This work provides a radical re-assessment of Protestantism by documenting and extrapolating Nietzsche’s view that Christianity dies...

Jesus and His Death: Historiography, the Historical Jesus, and Atonement Theory
Jesus and His Death: Historiography, the Historical Jesus, and Atonement Theory
This is a brave book. With due awareness of the historical traps and with a mastery of the recent relevant literature, McKnight here asks the crucial question, How did Jesus interpret his own death? His answer, which hearkens back to Albert Schweitzer, does full justice to Jesus' eschatological outlook and makes good sense within a first-century...

The Qur'an and Late Antiquity: A Shared Heritage (Oxford Studies in Late Antiquity)
The Qur'an and Late Antiquity: A Shared Heritage (Oxford Studies in Late Antiquity)
In this book, Angelika Neuwirth provides a new approach to understanding the founding text of Islam. Typical exegesis of the Qur'an treats the text teleologically, as a fait accompli finished text, or as a replica or summary of the Bible in Arabic. Instead Neuwirth approaches the Qur'an as the product of a specific...

Sacred Schisms: How Religions Divide
Sacred Schisms: How Religions Divide
Schism (from the Greek 'to split') refers to a group that breaks away from another, usually larger organisation and forms a new organisation. Though the term is typically confined to religious schisms, it can be extended to other kinds of breakaway groups. Because schisms emerge out of controversies, the term has negative connotations. Though they...

The Noetics of Nature: Environmental Philosophy and the Holy Beauty of the Visible (Groundworks: Ecological Issues in Philosophy and Theology)

Contemplative or "noetic" knowledge has traditionally been seen as the highest mode of understanding, a view that persists both in many non-Western cultures and in Eastern Christianity, where "theoria physike," or the illumined understanding of creation that follows the purification of the heart, is seen to provide deeper...
