Oxford University Press. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2014. Hardcover. 0199337489 . Explaining the Cosmos analyzes the writings of three thinkers associated with Gaza: Aeneas, Zacharias and Procopius. Together, they offer a case study for the appropriation, adaptation, and transformation of classical philosophy in late antiquity, and for cultural transitions more generally in Gaza. Aeneas claimed that the "Academy and Lyceum" had been transferred to Gaza. This book asks what the cultural and intellectual characteristics of the Gazan "Academies" were, and how members of the schools mixed with local cultures of Christians, philosophers, rhetoricians and monks from the local monasteries. Aeneas, Zacharias and Procopius each contributed to debates about the creation and eternity of the world, which ran from the Neoplatonist Proclus into the sixth-century disputes between Philoponus, Simplicius and Cosmas Indicopleustes. The Gazan contribution is significant in its own right, highlighting distinctive aspects of late-antique Christianity, and it throws the later philosophical debates into sharper relief. Focusing on the creation debates also allows for exploration of the local cultures that constituted Gazan society in the late-fifth and early-sixth centuries. Explaining the Cosmos further explores cultural dynamics in the Gazan schools and monasteries and the wider cultural history of the city. The Gazans adapt and transform aspects of Classical and Neoplatonic culture while rejecting Neoplatonic religious claims. The study also analyses the Gazans' intellectual contributions in the context of Neoplatonism and early Christianity. The Gaza which emerges from this study is a set of cultures in transition, mutually constituting and transforming each other through a fugal pattern of exchange, adaptation, conflict and collaboration. ; Oxford Studies in Late Antiquity; 256 pages ., Oxford University Press, 2014, Oxford: SLG Press Ltd.. Excellent condition.. Oxford, SLG Press Ltd., 1986. 14 x 20.5cm. (20), 24 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition. [Fairacres Publications, No. 94]. This selection of twenty poems by the fourth-century Greek theologian, St Gregory Nazianzen, represents his Christological writing. There is a substantial Introduction by John McGuckin, the Nielsen Professor of Early Church History at Union Theological Seminary and Professor of Byzantine Christian Studies at Columbia University. The collection includes the poems 'On the Son' and 'On the Incarnation', written to defend the orthodoxy of the Council of Nicea. In these poems, Gregory meets Arian and Apollinarist heretics on their own ground, demonstrating that Christians are as cultured as the pagans. There are also several hymns, smaller poems and prayers in which St Gregory reveals something of his own inner life. [SLG Press], SLG Press Ltd., Berghahn Books, Oxford: 2003.

There are no definitive histories," writes Elijah Wald, in this provocative reassessment of American popular music, "because the past keeps looking different as the present changes." Earlier musical styles sound different to us today because we hear them through the musical filter of other styles that came after them, all the way through funk and hiphop. As its blasphemous title suggests, How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll rejects the conventional pieties of mainstream jazz and rock history. Rather than concentrating on those traditionally favored styles, the book traces the evolution of popular music through developing tastes, trends and technologies--including the role of records, radio, jukeboxes and television --to give a fuller, more balanced account of the broad variety of music that captivated listeners over the course of the twentieth century. Wald revisits original sources--recordings, period articles, memoirs, and interviews--to highlight how music was actually heard and experienced over the years. And in a refreshing departure from more typical histories, he focuses on the world of working musicians and ordinary listeners rather than stars and specialists. He looks for example at the evolution of jazz as dance music, and rock 'n' roll through the eyes of the screaming, twisting teenage girls who made up the bulk of its early audience. Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, and the Beatles are all here, but Wald also discusses less familiar names like Paul Whiteman, Guy Lombardo, Mitch Miller, Jo Stafford, Frankie Avalon, and the Shirelles, who in some cases were far more popular than those bright stars we all know today, and who more accurately represent the mainstream of their times. Written with verve and style, How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll shakes up our staid notions of music history and helps us hear American popular music with new ears. Elijah Wald is a musician, writer and historian, whose books include Escaping the Delta: Robert Johnson and the Invention of the Blues; Narcocorrido, about the modern Mexican ballads of drug trafficking; The Mayor of MacDougal Street (with Dave Van Ronk), and Global Minstrels: Voices of World Music. He is currently teaching at UCLA, and contributing regular pieces to the Los Angeles Times. For more information, please visit www.elijahwald.com. "I couldn't put it down. It nailed me to the wall, not bad for a grand sweeping in-depth exploration of American Music with not one mention of myself. Wald's book is suave, soulful, ebullient and will blow out your speakers." - Tom Waits "Wald is a meticulous researcher, a graceful writer and a committed contrarian... an impressive accomplishment."- The New York Times Book Review "A complex, fascinating and long-overdue response to decades of industry-driven revisionism." - Jonny Whiteside, LA Weekly "It's an ambitious project, but Wald's casual narrative style and eye for a juicy quote give it a lightness that even a novice to pop, rock, or jazz history can appreciate... The title is appropriate: This is a provocative book, in all the right ways."- The Onion AV Club "Wald is a sharp, fair critic eager to right the record on popular music... deepens the appreciation of American popular music." - Boston Globe "This is a debatable premise... you don't have to agree with it to admire this book... It is as an alternative, corrective history of American music that Wald's book is invaluable. It forces us to see that only by studying the good with the bad--and by seeing that the good and bad can't be pulled apart--can we truly grasp the greatness of our cultural legacy." - Malcolm Jones, Newsweek "A serious treatise on the history of recorded music, sifted through his filter as musician, scholar, and fan... It's a brave and original work that certainly delivers." - Christian Science Monitor "A smart, inclusive celebration of mainstream stars, such as 1920s bandleader Paul Whiteman and the Fab Four, who introduced jazz, blues, and other roughhewn musical forms to mass audiences." - AARP Magazine "A powerfully provocative look at popular music and its impact on America." - Dallas Morning News "Elijah Wald is a treasure... There is far too much in these 300 pages to even summarize here. Wald is an economical and lucid writer with an amazing grasp of his subject. I know quite a lot of musical history, and I did not find a single clinker in this symphony of renewal and re-examination." - Winston-Salem Journal "As catchy and compelling as a great pop single, this revisionist retelling is provocative, profound and utterly necessary... Clearly the product of years of passionate research, it's so rife with references and surprising anecdotes that it's potentially overwhelming, but Wald makes a superlative tour guide-- frank, funny and generous but judicious with his inclusions-- and his book is a beguiling, blasphemous breeze." - Philadelphia City Paper "Elijah Wald's provocative, meticulously researched new book, How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll: An Alternative History of American Popular Music, turns the stock rock-and-roll narratives on their head."- Very Short List "Brilliant and provocative... the most challenging and head-clearing history of American popular music to be published in decades." - The Buffalo News "Wald explains musical and recording techniques and sociological phenomena in an engaging style accessible to a wide range of readers. Throughout, he makes a compelling case for why the figures most historians have disregarded or footnoted need to be considered in order to understand the totality of American popular music. This is an ideal companion to the plethora of standard histories available. Highly recommended." - Library Journal starred review "Wald's arguments are as nuanced as his scope is wide, which makes this a fascinating and useful volume--required reading for any fan of pop music." - Memphis Flyer "Fascinating... It's hard to imagine any American music buff coming away from this book without a fresh perspective and an overwhelming desire to seek out Paul Whiteman CDs. Highly recommended." - San Jose Mercury News "Wald's book may be the literary equivalent of revisionist Civil War histories which tell the war through the eyes of soldiers rather than the generals, for he highlights how consumers actually heard and experienced music over the years, whether as screaming teeny-boppers watching Dick Clark's Bandstand or swing afficionados dancing to Glenn Miller at the Roseland."- HistoryWire.com "A subtle polemic, one that is fundamentally broad-minded and seeks to educate the reader on the rich legacy and development of American popular music, the music that spawned the Beatles and from which that group departed, for better and worse." - Brooklyn Rail "Walds eminently readable book is a scholarly, provocative and opinionated account of the history of pop music from Sousa to the Stones, from genteel parlor piano recitals to arena rock spectacles." - Kansas City Star "A bracing, inclusive look at the dramatic transformation in the way music was produced and listened to during the 20th century... One of those rare books that aims to upend received wisdom and actually succeeds." - Kirkus Reviews "Some of the smartest historiography I've ever read. The examples and turns of phrase sometimes make me laugh out loud, and nearly every page overturns another outmoded assumption. Wald just calls it like he sees it and transforms everything as a result." - Susan McClary, MacArthur Fellow and author of Feminine Endings: Music, Gender, and Sexuality "This is a ground-breaking book, a muscular revisionist account that will get people thinking quite differently about the history of pop music. I've learned much from it and admire the writing style that is so light on its feet, lucid and elegant." - Bernard Gendron, author of Between Montmartre and the Mudd Club: Popular Music and the Avant Garde "Meticulously researched." - Bookforum.com "A fascinating and scrupulous piece of pop scholarship...Tantalizing." - Paste Magazine, Oxford University Press, New York/Oxford/London: 2009, St Vladimirs Seminary Pr, February 2003. Paper Back Paper Back. New. This collection of essays in honor of His Grace, Bishop Kallistos of Diokleia, represent not only the scholar but also the man. Beginning with Andrew Louth's lively and informative biographical sketch (in which we discover young Timothy's mother dubbed him a ''Bath bun,'' in the spirit of his birthplace, and his Oxford comrades call him ''Super K''), the volume is organized into three categories, each examining different aspects of Orthodoxy's historical, theological and spiritual tradition in the West. Offered by a shining host of scholars and theologians in their own right, these papers reveal not only Bishop Kallistos' considerable influence on Orthodox scholarship but also his unflagging commitment to those wanting to know more about Orthodox life. The table of contents alone is laudable: Thomas Hopko on good and evil, Sebastian Brock on Saint Ephrem, Bishop Alfeyev on theological education in the early Christian East, John Behr on faithfulness and creativity, John Chryssavgis on spiritual direction and A.M. Allchin on the story of redemption in early Welsh poetry. The breadth of these studies testify to Orthodoxy's reality of truth as participation, much as Bishop Kallistos first experienced it in a dark London church: a world ''more real -- I would almost say more solid,'' cloaked in the sense of overwhelming presence, a glimpse of the ''beauty of holiness, not confected, but offered for participation.'', St Vladimirs Seminary Pr, England: Oxford Univ Press, 2001.

Sacrificed Wife/Sacrificer's Wife: Women, Ritual, and Hospitality in Ancient India (Oxford Early Christian Studies) - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 0195096630

ID: 3420506

This book concerns the conceptual position of women in early India, specifically in the Vedic and early epic periods (c.1500-200 BCE), and it seeks to make contributions both to Indology and to gender studies. By focusing on a single female role--the activities of the "Sacrificer's Wife" in solemn ritual--and by extracting the rich materials on her role from the voluminous technical ritual manuals, the author isolates a set of conceptual functions the wife fills in ritual practice. These functions can then be observed in other cultural institutions in which women participate--particularly the system of hospitality and gift exchange that regulated the relations between mutually obligated strangers in ancient India and the system of marital exchange. Besides filling a large gap in our understanding of ancient India, this work makes a general contribution to the study of women and gender, not merely by supplying information about a place and time poorly represented in these studies, but also by suggesting some methodologies involving sensitivity to language and linguistic analysis to employ in approaching women and gender in other ancient cultures. ancient,asia,education and reference,europe,gay and lesbian,gender studies,history,humanities,india,linguistics Linguistics, Oxford University Press
