370 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "Who was Izri, Rinnah, Heli? Are Mica, Micah, Micaiah, and Michaiah the same person or four different people? Where is the story of the scheming villain Haman found? What is meant by 'she's a real Jezebel' or 'he's a doubting Thomas'? Clearly identified in these pages are nearly 3,000 individuals - absolutely every man, woman, and child, important or obscure - named in the Bible. In cases of multiple spelling, the names are carefully cross-referenced. When more than one person bears a particular name - there are twenty-five Azariahs, for example, and thirty Zechariahs - each is clearly identified and distinguished from the others. Scripture references are given for each name, along with a brief resume of all that is known concerning the person - genealogy, significant accomplishments, or historical facts. The information is accurate; the descriptions concise; and the style readable and fascinating. An ideal book for Bible teachers and scholars, for the lay person who is often confronted with literary references to Biblical personalities, for writers and speakers to whom accuracy is paramount - a dependable, complete who's who in the Bible."

THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH BIBLE., Bobrick, Benson.
9 Bobrick, Benson. THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH BIBLE.
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London, 2001, first British edition. 
376 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0297607723 "(T)races the story across the Protestant-Catholic divide of the sixteenth century as the struggle to complete a vernacular Bible was fought among competeing factions. As ( the author) tells in his enthralling history it was the culmination of centuries of work by various translators and a committee of scholars who in 1604 were brought together to collaborate on what became known as the King James version. Their t r a n s lation - substantially based on the work of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale and others - shaped English literature and speech for centuries giving us what have become such commonly used expressions as: 'labour of love', 'a thorn in the fle sh ', ' th e root of all evil', 'the fat of the land', 'the sweat of thy brow', 'to cast pearls before swine' and 'the shadow of death' among a host of others. (This book) shows the profound effect the English Bible had on law and society. By giv ing ev ery li terate person access to the sacred text it helped to foster the spirit of inquiry through reading and reflection. Once individuals were free to interpret the word of God according to the light of their own understanding, they began to q uest ion the authority of their inherited institutions, both religious and secular. This led to the reformation within the Church, the rise of constitutional government in England and ultimately the end of the divine right of kings. In Benson Bobr ick's vie w th e English Civil War was fought in the light (and shadow) of such ideas, culminating in the Glorious Revolution of 1688. 'The Making of the English Bible' is about a crucial epoch in the history of Christianity, about the Engli sh lan guage and s ociet y, and about a book that changed the course of human events." Minor indentation on rear board, a few very small bumps (one with tiny tear) at top edge of front board. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of hinges and fl ap-fold s, one tiny tear a rchivally taped, tiny corner crease at top corner of front flap. Very Good/Very Good+

414 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "Realizing from mediaeval documents that the initial Nova Scotia refuge of A.D. 1398 must have harboured many Grail believers, and that the secret colony must have expanded, Bradley began to trace evidence of Grail Knights from Nova Scotia, through New Brunswick to the St. Lawrence River, and on to the Great Lakes as far as Niagara, New York State, and central Pennsylvania. Evidence of their presence has been uncovered on both the Canadian and American sides of this great waterway. Bradley poses compelling questions about his discoveries, and offers plausible and provocative answers as we travel with him and his companions (both academic and amateur) along the trail of the 'Grail Knights of North America'."

SHAKER COMMUNITIES, SHAKER LIVES., Brewer, Priscilla J.
11 Brewer, Priscilla J. SHAKER COMMUNITIES, SHAKER LIVES.
Hanover, NH University Press of New England 1986 0874513626 / 9780874513622 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
273 pp, large 8vo (89 1/4" H). B&w photographs, tables. "Athough we know much about Shaker furniture, dance, textiles, and various artifacts, few books tell us about the Shakers as real people and the inner social workings of their sect. Who were the Shakers? What were their social, economic, and religious backgrounds? Why did they join this celibate, communal sect, and why did some leave while others stayed? What did they think of life inside the communities and the rapidly changing world outside? And, perhaps most important, when and why did the sect begin to decline, and how did Believers adjust to this decline? These are some of the questions Priscilla Brewer addresses in this engaging social history. Her highly readable general introduction to the Shakers challenges basic assumptions about the timing and reasons for the group's decline. Brewer studies the Shaker movement from its founding in 1774 to its last major public statement in 1904, restricting her work to the eleven Shaker communities in eastern New York and New England. (She) provides an inside look at Shaker life by recounting the group's social organization, the occupational roles of its members, the composition of its communities, and the operation of the Shaker hierarchy. Far from being a dry, sociological study, this book is filled with anecdotes and revealing stories related by the Shakers through the many writings they left behind." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny foxing mark on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has minor edge wear and light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, slight fading to spine color.

BEYOND THE MYTH:  THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC., Brooks, Polly Schoyer.
12 Brooks, Polly Schoyer. BEYOND THE MYTH: THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC.
New York J.B. Lippincott 1990 03973242257 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- Signed by Author
176 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. Signed by author on half title page. "Inspired by her love for France, by her determination to see the rightful king rule, and especially by her private visions and voices, Joan (of Arc) overcame the doubts of everyone from her parents to the king himself. Within a year Joan led the French to a resounding victory at Orleans and made possible the coronation of Charles VII in the cathedral of Reims. But after her glorious triumph, conflicts in the French camp, bad advice, and perhaps Joan's own headstrong nature brought her to defeat and finally to imprisonment and trial for heresy and witchcraft. Burned as a witch by the English after what was largely a political trial, she was later cleared of heresy, and eventually canonized. She is now the most popular French heroine and saint. (The author) has sifted through the records of Joan's trial, examined the studies of major historians, and roamed the streets of Domremy to find out who Joan really was. Neither a cardboard saint nor - as few still think - a witch, Joan emerges as a lively, emotional, determined person who believed so strongly in her cause that she overcame every obstacle she faced. Here is a new Joan for a new generation ready to question old legends and to marvel again at her courage and faith." Part of a series of history books aimed at the teenage reader. Light wrinkling at top of spine, previous owner's signed bookplate on front pastedown. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds, a few small light line indentations on front panel and on rear flap, slight fading to spine color.

Both lauded the influence of the virtuous Christian woman, used the same female r ole models from the Bible, and saw the home as the locus of the construction of female piety. Yet each group castigated the other for having antifemale values. Protestants developed the slovenly, drunken 'Biddy' as a stereotype of Catholic women and Catholics portrayed Protestant devotional and family life as cold and arid. Observers of present-day Northern Ireland will find these historical contrasts of immediate relevance."

134 pp, small 8vo (7 13/16" H), soft cover. ISBN 1862042470 "The Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century opened a wide-ranging debate on the nature of authority within the Christian Church, giving birth to a vigorous radical dissent moveme nt and the emergence of Unitarianism in the United States and Europe. Based on the belief that the only true source of authority is human reason itself, this is a religous community where doubts are encouraged and tenets are refreshingly free fro m dogma. The guiding principles are simply freedom, reason and tolerance, and the right to question religious doctrine is a valued part of Unitarian practice. (This book) explains: what Unitarians believe; how Unitarianism differs from mainstream C h ristiandenom in at ions; the role of Unitarians in international religious dialogue; what Unitarianism can offer us today."

Princeton, New Jersey Princeton University Press 1991 0691020760 / 9780691020761 Soft Cover Very Good+ 
275 pp, 8 7/16" H. "In this exploration of the 'very first utterance of philosophers', F.M. Cornford showed that the remarkable burst of abstract speculation among pre-Socratic thinkers of the sixth century B.C. emerged directly from the religious thoughts of the preceding era in Greece. Combining profound classical scholarship with striking anthropological and sociological insight, Cornford rejected the post-Darwinian rationalist assumption that religion and philosophy are fundamentally different from each other. His book supplies a needed reminder of the intricate connections between critical scientific thought and social and emotional experience. Classicists, historians of religion, students of ancient history, and everyone concerned with the subject of myth will find this lucid and highly original work to be a source of rich insights about the organic nature and continuity of Western thought." Interior - previous owner's chop mark (stamp) on half-title page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks.
