"The Relic is an irreverent fictional autobiography narrating the picaresque adventures of Teodorico, a Portuguese playboy determined to be the sole heir of his absurdly pious, sexually repressed, and tyrannical Auntie. Sent to the Holy Land, he returns with what he presumes is the "relic of relics" in hopes of persuading Auntie to bequeath her vast fortune to him. While in Jerusalem, Teodorico has a vision in which he witnesses Christ's trial and crucifixion and the founding of Christianity--with a twist."--Google books

Cartas de Inglaterra las mejores crónicas que Eça de Queirós mandó al periódico brasileño Gazeta de Notícias. Escritas durante los años en que ejerció de cónsul en Bristol?el propio Eça manifestó sentir la necesidad de escribirlas por higiene intelectual?, son la suma de la visión privilegiada de un cosmopolita, de un escritor de talento que se acerca sin tapujos a la realidad y la analiza para hacérnosla más clara. Encontramos aquí una voz propia, irónica, que tan pronto habla de política como de la Navidad, de los desmanes del mundo editorial como de la dominación británica de Egipto, de la figura de Lord Beaconsfield o del prestigioso y burlado Times. Son estas unas páginas brillantes, iluminadoras, que, a los cien años de su publicación no dejan de sorprender por su actualidad
Contos by Eça de Queirós( Book )

226 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"José Maria Eça de Queirós (Póvoa de Varzim, 1845-Neuilly, 1900) no fue tan sólo el autor de novelas geniales como El primo Basilio, El crimen del padre Amaro, La ilustre casa de Ramírez o La ciudad y las sierras, pues de su pluma salieron también algunos de los mejores cuentos portugueses. Estos relatos, reunidos aquí en versión íntegra (incluyendo textos hasta ahora dispersos en otros libros), son una prueba más que evidente de la versatilidad temática de Eça de Queirós, creador de un "estilo" único y de un universo narrativo plural. Son múltiples también sus "imaginarios": desde el mundo etno-fantástico de "El difunto" y "El tesoro", o el maravilloso bíblico "El suave milagro" o "El aya", hasta el irresistible mundo de las mujeres adúlteras de "En el molino" y la crítica de costumbres que confirió a su obra de novelista el fulgor de la universalidad."--Descripción de la editorial

O primo bazilio : episodio doméstico by Eça de Queirós( Book )

132 editions published between 1878 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, a billion-dollar-a-year polling industry floods the media with information... Polls tell us that 40 percent of Americans attend religious services each week. They show that African Americans are no more religious than white Americans, and that Jews are abandoning their religion in record numbers. According to leading sociologist Robert Wuthnow, none of that is correct. Pollsters say that attendance at religious services has been constant for decades. But during that time response rates in polls have plummeted, robotic 'push poll' calls have proliferated, and sampling has become more difficult. The accuracy of political polling can be known because elections actually happen. But there are no election results to show if the proportion of people who say they pray every day or attend services every week is correct. A large majority of the public doubts that polls can be trusted, and yet night after night on TV, polls experts sum up the nations habits to an eager audience of millions. Inventing American Religion offers a provocative new argument about the influence of polls in contemporary American society. Wuthnow contends that polls and surveys have shaped--and distorted--how religion is understood and portrayed in the media and also by religious leaders, practitioners, and scholars. He calls for a robust public discussion about American religion that extends well beyond the information provided by polls and surveys, and he suggests practical steps to facilitate such a discussion, including changes in how the results of polls and surveys are presented"--

The crime of Father Amaro : scenes from the religious life by Eça de Queirós( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Young, virile Father Amaro (whose name means "bitter" in Portuguese) arrives in Leira and is taken in as a lodger by Sao Joaneira. Her budding, devout, dewy-lipped daughter Amelia is soon lusted after by the young priest. What ensues is a secret love affair amidst a host of compelling minor characters: Canon Dias, a priest, glutton, and Sao Joaneira's lover; Dona Maria da Assuncao, a wealthy widow with a roomful of religious relics, agog at any hint of sex; Joao Eduardo, repressed atheist, free-thinker, and suitor to Amelia. Eca's incisive critique flies like a shattering mirror, jabbing everything from the hypocrisy of a rich and powerful Church, to the provincialism of Portuguese society of the time
