"The history of the Roman Catholic Church is a gateway to understanding two thousand years of Western - and at times world - civilization. Edward Norman's illustrated account tells the story of the multifarious ways in which the Church has shaped the lives and beliefs of Christians and non-Christians alike. It is partly a story of remarkable people, from the greatest theologian of the early Church, St. Augustine, to one of the greatest figures of the modern age, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. It is also a story rich in symbols, not least the awe-inspiring basilica built over the tomb of St. Peter in Rome, the most recognizable church in the world. But the focus of the book is a historical account of epic proportions. Here we discover how Rome became the heart of the Roman Catholic religion and played a role in transforming Western Europe into Christendom. We gain a view of the Crusades undistorted by today's agendas, explore the Counter-Reformation as the fruit of the venerable Catholic reforming tradition, and witness the beginning of a new 500-year history, in which missionaries took their message to Latin America and the East. And we come to see how the Church, reflecting the vision of the Second Vatican Council in 1962, today embodies Christ's own injunction to "teach all nations.""--BOOK JACKET
The Catholic Church and Ireland in the age of rebellion, 1859-1873 [by] E.R. Norman by Edward R Norman( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Victorian Christian Socialists by Edward R Norman( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Victorian Christian Socialism began as a protest against industrial evils by a group of Anglicans in 1848 - the year of the great Chartist demonstration. In F.D. Maurice it had a prophet and a thinker whose ideas inspired subsequent Christians, so that the ideals of the original Christian Socialists began to spread to other Churches. The result was a series of critiques of the England of their day, rather than a systematic 'movement', and is best analysed, as it is in this book, through an examination of the leading figures, who in addition to Maurice include Charles Kingsley, Thomas Hughes and John Ruskin. The present study is not a collection of biographical studies, however, but a history of Christian Socialism constructed around the most influential of its advocates. They are shown to have been ethical and educational reformers rather than politicians, but in their ability to stand outside the common assumptions and prejudices of their day they achieved social criticism of lasting value

Secularisation by Edward R Norman( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new study of secularisation is not a systematic attempt - of the sort which might be made by a social scientist - to describe and identify every feature of a fading religious landscape. It is a landscape, indeed, which was once familiar, and yet which now appears almost unrecognisable to those who have lived within it all their lives. They, and many external observers, are saddened by the decline of institutional religion in Britain and cannot clearly discern the full nature of the causes. Edward Norman, author of An Anglican Catechism and Out of the Depths, holds to account a number of the fundamental transformations in religious understanding itself, which helps the reader to grasp the bigger picture of the decline of the church in Britain."--Jacket

21 editions published in 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anglican difficulties : a new syllabus of errors by Edward R Norman( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new study Edward Norman examines the state of the Church of England and the Anglican Communion, and argues that its patently ailing condition is not the consequence merely of a difference of view over major questions of belief and practice, but of problems intrinsic to its very nature. It is a book about authority: about how Christian truth is validated, and the means by which the institutional Church can resist the intrusion of error into its understanding of faith. What Anglicanism notably lacks, he believes, is a coherent basis of authority, a doctrine of the Church itself. It has, in consequence - and despite its seeming traditionalism - more of the qualities of a religious society than of a Church, and this is due to imperfectly addressing fundamental questions about its source of authority at the time of the Reformation."--BOOK JACKET
