40-day Journey with Julian of Norwich Augsburg Fortress
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The volumes in the 40-Day Journey series invite readers to take a spiritual journey with a great spiritual guide from the past or the present. In this volume, readers will be inspired by Julian, a celebrated English mystic from the fourteenth century and a recluse at St. Julian's Church in Norwich, whose writings were the first works in English known to be written by a woman.Drawing from her published writings, editor Lisa Dahill here selects forty inspiring passages from Julian's work that help illustrate God's love and compassion for all. A medieval Catholic, Julian was seen as a precursor to Martin Luther and other Reformation writers. Much of what she wrote speaks of the most profound mysteries of the Christian faith, and her Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love (circa 1393) is considered to be one of the most remarkable documents of medieval religious experience. In it she speaks of the great love of God for God's people and how sin stands in the way. It is Jesus, however, who assures her, "that all would be well, and all manner of things would be well."40-Day Journey with Julian of Norwich begins with a short introduction to the life of Julian and then offers forty chapters, each of which includes a reading from her writings, related Scripture passages, questions to ponder, journal-reflection exercises, and a prayer. The book also includes helps on how to use the book and hints on keeping a journal along with ideas for further reading. Each chapter in the book includes space for notes.

Isabel the Queen Life and Times Second Edition Peggy K. Liss "An engrossing study."--Sunday Telegraph "Provides a wealth of detail documenting Isabel's love for Fernando, her devotion to her children, her ruthless ambition, and her canny statecraft."--Publishers Weekly "Magnificently researched...A valuable reference book for the period and region."--Library Journal "An admirable portrait of an astute ruler whose passionate sense of mission did a great deal to shape the western world as we know it."--Sixteenth Century Journal Queen Isabel of Castile is perhaps best known for her patronage of Christopher Columbus and for the religious zeal that led to the Spanish Inquisition, the waging of holy war, and the expulsion of Jews and Muslims across the Iberian peninsula. In this sweeping biography, newly revised and annotated to coincide with the five-hundredth anniversary of Isabel's death, Peggy K. Liss draws upon a rich array of sources to untangle the facts, legends, and fiercely held opinions about this influential queen and her decisive role in the tumultuous politics of early modern Spain. Isabel the Queen reveals a monarch who was a woman of ruthless determination and strong religious beliefs, a devoted wife and mother, and a formidable leader. As Liss shows, Isabel's piety and political ambition motivated her throughout her life, from her earliest struggles to claim her crown to her secret marriage to King Fernando of Aragon, a union that brought success in civil war, consolidated Christian hegemony over the Iberian peninsula, and set the stage for Spain to become a world empire. Peggy K. Liss is the author of Atlantic Empires: The Network of Trade and Revolution, 1713-1823 and Mexico Under Spain 1521-1556: Society and the Origins of Nationality.
