Puritan's progress by Monica Furlong ( Book )
5 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Bunyan is known principally as the author of the famous inspirational allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress. What has carried his fame, however, as much as his art, has been the attraction his work and life have held for the English evangelical tradition. Bunyan was a part of the Puritan movement, which took it for granted that a person would suffer for all things he believed were right. They gave England an ideal of the good man--honest, brave, God-fearing, hard-working and dutiful. Bunyan was a rural tinker when he experienced his "conversion." He became an outspoken traveling Nonconformist preacher who encouraged dissenters against the Stuart effort toward religious uniformity. As an important theorist and spokesman for the rebels, Bunyan was threatened with exile. He chose prison instead, rather than compromise his moral convictions. There, during his long confinement, he wrote numerous tracts and stories, including The Pilgrim's Progress. Here, biographer Monica Furlong examines the major tenets of Puritanism as they were developed and fought for by its chief practitioner and preacher.--From publisher description
Visions & longings : medieval women mystics by Monica Furlong ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The women mystics of medieval Europe represent the very first feminine voices heard in a world where women were nearly silent. Monica Furlong presents writings by and about eleven of these Christian mystics who lived and worked between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries." "They are Heloise, the abbess whose letters to her former lover Abelard are a treasure of medieval literature; Christina of Markyate, the hermit whose early life was characterized by her zealous antics aimed at avoiding marriage; Hildegard of Bingen, the Rhineland's renaissance woman - scientist, visionary, poet, and theologian; Beatrijs of Nazareth, Mechtild of Magdeburg, and Hadewijch of Brabant, scholars and poets of the Beguine movement of women's communities; Clare of Assisi, the close friend of Saint Francis and founder of the community of the Poor Clares; Angela di Foligno, the noble woman of Umria whose joyful spirituality made her a cult figure in her own lifetime; Catherine of Siena, the confidante of popes whose major writing consists of dialogue between herself and God; Margery Kempe, the eccentric mystic housewife; and Julian of Norwich, the recluse who spent the greater part of her life reflecting and elaborating upon the visions she received at age thirty - including a striking vision of God as Mother."--BOOK JACKET
