Symbolism and belief by Edwyn Robert Bevan( Book )

45 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1938, this title presents the greater part of the 1933 Gifford Lectures in natural theology, given by Edwyn Bevan. The questions raised regarding the element of symbolism in religious conceptions takes the reader to the very heart of the religious problem, and addresses some of the most fundamental questions posed by theology and comparative religion: the nature of 'Spirit'; the spiritual efficacy of sacred histories and the images they utilise, in particular those found in the Bible; the ambiguous role of language, not only in relation to God but also to the world around

The house of Ptolemy; a history of Egypt under the Ptolemaic dynasty by Edwyn Robert Bevan( Book )

56 editions published between 1899 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1927, this title presents a well-regarded study of this intriguing and often over-looked period of Egyptian history, both for the general reader and the student of Hellenism. Edwyn Bevan describes his work as 'an attempt to tell afresh the story of a great adventure, Greek rule in the land of the Pharaohs ... which ends with the astounding episode of Cleopatra'. The result is a remarkable synthesis of historical scholarship, prose style and breadth of vision, which will still prove to be of value to Egypt enthusiasts and students of Egyptology

Sibyls and seers, a survey of some ancient theories of revelation and inspiration by Edwyn Robert Bevan( Book )

25 editions published between 1928 and 2014 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ancient world as a whole believed in the existence of a world of spirits beyond, or alongside, the visible, tangible world. They believed also that communications between these two worlds frequently took place: everywhere we find diviners and prophets, oracles and visionaries. First published in 1928, Sibyls and Seers investigates the various aspects of this 'superstition' in the Ancient Near East, in Homer, the Greek tragedians, and the myriad religions of the Roman Empire. The theophanies of Yahweh in the Old Testament - Enoch, Jeremiah, Ezekiel - are given some attentio
Holy images; an inquiry into idolatry and image-worship in ancient paganism and in Christianity by Edwyn Robert Bevan( Book )

22 editions published between 1940 and 2014 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1940, this title presents four of the Gifford Lectures in natural theology given by Edwyn Bevan in 1933: 'An Inquiry into Idolatry and Image-Worship in Ancient Paganism and Christianity'. Reference is made throughout all four lectures not only to the conventional disputes in Western Christianity, but also to the attitudes of Hebrew, Pagan, Patristic, Muslim and Eastern thinkers towards the role of symbols and symbolism in worship. In this way, a subject of perennial fascination and importance is placed in a broad historical context, and innovative lines of enquiry
