Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a vivid account of what their gods meant to the Romans from archaic times to late antiquity, and of the rites and rituals connected with them. After an introduction into the nature of classical religion, the book is divided into three parts: religions of the family and land; religions of the city; and religions of the empire. The book ends with a discussion of the rise and impact of Christianity. For the Romans, the author argues, religion was almost as much a form of insurance as it was a question of belief. The gods were valued according to the degree of protection they afforded against natural hazards and occult powers. They were a crucial source of tactical information in time of war and their approval was vital to the success of agriculture, marriage and childbirth. Appeasing the gods and enlisting their help involved ritual and sacrifice which required the arcane knoweldge of the priesthood. Because there were so many gods, it might be hard to know which one to invoke and perilous to get it wrong. The Romasn took their gods extremely seriously, there was nothing more complicated than a Roman sacrifice or more precise than the preparation of the meal offered to the god; the slightest infringement of the priestly recipe would spoil the feast and might jeopardise the affairs of Rome itself. Robert Turcan shows that Roman attitudes towards the gods continued to be pragmatic throughout the millennium coverd by the book. Useful gods discovered among conquered peoples of the Empire were adopted without rejecting any from the old pantheon. Traditional worship remained strong long after the emperors converted to Christianity, and many of the early Roman Christians maintained a tactful respect for older deities. Up-to-date in its archaeological and epigraphic evidence, and drawing extensively on a wide range of relevant literary material this book is ideally suited for undergraduate courses in the history of Romand and its religions. Its urbane style and lightly worn scholarship will broaden its appeal to non-academic readers with a serious interest in the classical world.

Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2011 in the subject History - World History - Basics, grade: -, -, course: World history- Early to Modern Theo-political history, language: English, abstract: THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE JEWRY AND JEWISH FORMATION IN EUROPE: In Europe countless Jews were tortured, murdered continuously. Jews were expelled from England in 1290, France in 1306 and 1394, Hungary between 1349 and 1360, Austria in 1421, numerous localities in Germany between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, Lithuania in 1445 and 1495, Spain in 1492, Portugal in 1497, and Bohemia and Moravia in 1744-45. Between the fifteenth century and 1772, Jews were not allowed into Russia; when finally admitted there, they were restricted to one area, the Pale of Settlement. In most societies in which Jews have lived, they have at some time been subjected to beatings, torture, and murder not only because they were outsiders, but more important, it has often been believed by non- Jews that the Jews challenge the validity of their god(s), Law(s), national allegiance, and/or national worth. §The raison d etre of Judaism from its earliest days, has been to change the world for the better (heaven for themselves), in the words of an ancient Jewish prayer recited daily, to repair the world under the rule of God (Yahweh?) .This attempt to change the world to challenge the gods, religious or secular, of the societies of the non Jews, and to make (Pharisaic) (un)moral demands upon others has constantly been a source of tension around the World.§Since Pharisaic Talmudic Judaism is the root cause of Anti- Phariseeism (also called anti- Semitism), Jews, could in almost every instance, escape persecution through conversion to Christianity, and many of them are believed to have been as hidden Jews . For thousands of years and until today, Jews who abandoned their Jewish identity and assumed the majority s religious and national identity were no longer persecuted.Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2011 in the subject History - World History - Basics, grade: -, -, course: World history- Early to Modern Theo-political history, language: English, abstract: In Europe countless Jews were tortured, murdered continuously. The Jews were expelled from all of these European Nations for some precise reasons. One of the reasons was their tenacious adherence to the dishonest Babylonian Code of Human Conduct , especially, their relentless Lying and Deception was the Direct Cause of their Ostracism. It has also been believed by non- Jews that the Jews challenge the validity of their god(s), Law(s), national allegiance, and/or national worth. The raison d etre of Judaism from its earliest days, has been to change the world for the better (for them). The only entity which stood in opposition to the Pharisees and their Babylonian Codified Talmud with the extinction of the Sadducees, were the Christians. The Pharisees look to a body of so-called "Laws" which derive from "Slave-Trading Codes" in Ancient Babylon were passed down to the Roman Slave-Traders in the earliest period . . . "This is that precise Code of Human Conduct of which the Pharisee "Money-Changers" were using to corrupt the Temple in Jerusalem. Modern "Rabbinical Judaism" is the Religious Descendant of those very Pharisees who based their entire Religious Belief-System upon these Laws which is Not from the teachings of Moses. The Connection between the Roman Slave-Traders and the Pharisees was at some point in the even more ancient history; the Roman Slave-Traders and the Pharisee of Israel; were of Common Cultural Ancestry. Rome is well recognizable as an Aggressively Warring and Conquering nation and is the source of English and American "Civil Laws". The Pharisaical system of "Commercial Law", as codified in the "Babylonian Talmud"; was at that time Forcibly imposed by the Romanistic-Normans over the previously Non-Romanized Christian-Law English People. The fact that the religion of the Pharisees continues to this day under their self-proclaimed banner of "Judaism", indicates that they and their Slave-Trading practices continue on to exist to this very day. The law of Babylonia has had an immense effect upon that of nearly all the countries of Europe, the USA.

Quo Vadis is a historical novel by Henryk Sienkiewicz, published in Polish under its Latin title in 1896. The title means "where are you going?" and alludes to a New Testament verse (John 13:36). The novel is set in ancient Rome during the reign of the emperor Nero and tells the story of the love that develops between a young Christian woman and a Roman officer who, after meeting her fellow Christians, converts to her religion. Underlying their relationship is the contrast between the worldly opulence of the Roman aristocracy and the poverty, simplicity, and spiritual power of the Christians. Henryk Sienkiewicz won the 1905 Nobel Prize in Literature. A Polish writer and patriot, he is best known abroad for his monumental historical epic Quo Vadis that portrays the vibrant and dissonant combination of cruel excesses and decadence of Rome during the reign of the corrupt Emperor Nero and the high faith of the emerging era of early Christianity.

Origins of the Gospel Traditions SCM PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In two large and somewhat technical books, Memory and Manuscript and Tradition and Transmission in Early Christianity, Professor Gerhardsson put forward some controversial theories about how the gospel material came down to us, arguing that modern critics had not paid enough attention to the nature of oral tradition in the ancient world. This short study presents his views clearly and simply, as they have been tested and refined over the past fifteen years since they were first put forward. The reader will find not only a straightforward presentation of one way in which the writing of our gospels may be explained, but also a series of penetrating questions which will prompt further thought, whether from radicals or conservatives. Here is strong argument for the reliability of the gospels coupled with an acknowledgment of the degree of our ignorance and a stimulus to further questioning.
