The irrational Augustine by Catherine Conybeare( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Irrational Augustine takes the notion of St Augustine as rigid and dogmatic Father of the Church and turns it on its head. Catherine Conybeare reads Augustine's earliest works to discover the anti-dogmatic Augustine, who values changeability and human interconnectedness and deplores social exclusion. The novelty of her book lies in taking seriously the nature of these early works as performances, through which multiple questions can be raised and multiple options explored, both in words and through their dramatic framework. The theological consequences are considerable. A very human Augustine emerges, talking and playing with friends and family, including his mother - and a very sympathetic set of ideas is the result.-- PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
Paulinus Noster : self and symbols in the letters of Paulinus of Nola by Catherine Conybeare( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This literate and accessible study examines the profound impact Paulinus had on Christian thought during a crucial period of its development. His ideas on friendship, Christian symbolism and the nature of personal identity were produced on the cusp of the transition from the classical world to the burgeoning Western Christian civilization by a thinker with strong links to both. Paulinus' letters and other writings reveal the roots of many important strands of Christian thought; the works of Augustine and others attest to this influence." "The letters of Paulinus and his correspondents portray an early Christian 'web' of shared concepts, intellectual discussion, and group development. Catherine Conybeare examines how the very process of writing and transmitting letters between members of a far-flung community helped to bind that community together and to aid the creation of ideas which would continue to reverberate for centuries after. 'Our Paulinus' was key to that group - iconic as a model of behaviour, as a conversion success story, and as a intellectual contributor able to bridge the old world and the new."--Jacket
The laughter of Sarah : biblical exegesis, feminist theory, and the concept of delight by Catherine Conybeare( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author explores 'the laughter of delight', in particular the delighted laughter of the matriarch Sarah in the book of Genesis when she gives birth to her son Isaac. This laughter is "heard" through biblical commentaries, twentieth-century theorists of laughter and contemporary feminist theories
The Routledge guidebook to Augustine's Confessions by Catherine Conybeare( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augustine's Confessions is one of the most significant works of Western culture. Cast as a long, impassioned conversation with God, it is intertwined with passages of life-narrative and with key theological and philosophical insights. It is enduringly popular, and justly so. The Routledge Guidebook to Augustine's Confessions is an engaging introduction to this spiritually creative and intellectually original work. This guidebook is organized by themes: the importance of language; creation and the sensible world; memory, time and the self; the afterlife of the Confessions. Written for readers approaching the Confessions for the first time, this guidebook addresses the literary, philosophical, historical and theological complexities of the work in a clear and accessible way. Excerpts in both Latin and English from this seminal work are included throughout the book to provide a close examination of both the autobiographical and theoretical content within the Confessions
Maxima debetur magistro reverentia : essays on Rome and the Roman tradition in honor of Russel T. Scott( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laughter of Sarah, The : Biblical Interpretation, Contemporary Feminism, and the Concept of Delight by Catherine Conybeare( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book plays with the notion of the laughter of delight, and the way in which it has gone largely unheard in the Western interpretative tradition. The scope of the work stretches from the ancient to the modern, but it has a consistent leitmotif: the delighted laughter of the matriarch Sarah in the book of Genesis, when she gives birth to her son Isaac. This laughter is "heard" first through biblical commentaries, then through twentieth-century theorists of laughter; finally, contemporary feminist theorists are used to help realize the radical openness of the laughter of delight
