Laughter at the foot of the cross by M. A Screech( Book )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and French and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the foot of the Cross, as Jesus hung in agony, the crowd laughed. Christians, ever since, have been ambivalent about laughter. St. Paul banned 'jesting', but did that include mockery and high spirits? And what were the lessons of Biblical figures like (delighted) Abraham and (disbelieving) Sarah, both in their nineties, who laughed at the news they were about to have a child? Such debates had a deep influence on Erasmus Rabelais and other great humanist writers Michael Screech's book illuminates both the background and their individual achievements."--BOOK JACKET

Gargantua by François Rabelais( Book )

30 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gargantua is born into a long line of eminent giants, and his birth - through his mother's ear, after an overindulgence in tripes - recalls the fabled nativities of the gods of old. Such an auspicious beginning can only herald an equally auspicious life, and it is a life we are led through in remarkable detail, from his early show of genius, by the invention of the best of all possible arse-wipes, through his wide-ranging education, to his adult life and adventures." "Rabelais's hero, the father of his other great invention, Pantagruel, grows up to be a learned, humane and courageous giant, confronting the dual perils of sophistry and foreign aggression. Filled with hilarious and surreal episodes, such as the bell theft of Notre-Dame and the cake-makers' war, together with a generous dose of bawdy and bodily humour, Rabalais's Gargantua equals Pantagruel in wit, warmth and humanistic inventiveness, and offers a striking burlesque on the vacuousness and hypocrisy of his contemporary society."--BOOK JACKET

An apology for Raymond Sebond by Michel de Montaigne( Book )

8 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under the pretense of defending an obscure treatise by a Catalan theologian, Sebond, Montaigne attacks the philosophers who attempt rational explanations of the universe and argues for a skeptical Christianity based squarely on faith rather than reason. The result is the Apology for Raymond Sebond, a classic of Counter-Reformation thought and a masterpiece of Renaissance literature."--Publisher's description
Gargantua and Pantagruel by François Rabelais( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The moral stories of Rabelais (c.1471-1553) expose human follies with their mischievous and often obscene humour, while intertwining the realistic with carnivalesque fantasy to make us look afresh at the world. Gargantua depicts a young giant, reduced to laughable insanity by an education at the hands of paternal ignorance, old crones, and syphilitic professors, who is rescued and turned into a cultured Christian knight. And in Pantagruel and its three sequels, Rabelais parodied tall tales of chivalry and satirized the law, theology, and academia to portray the bookish son of Gargantua who becomes a Renaissance Socrates, divinely guided in his wisdom, and his idiotic, self-loving companion Panurge

Doctrina et politia Ecclesiae Anglicanae : an Anglican summa : facsimile with variants of the text of 1617 by Richard Mocket( Book )

14 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warden Richard Mocket's Doctrina et Politia Ecclesiae Anglicanae is a Summa of Anglican doctrine and organisation compiled by a chaplain of George Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury. It includes (anonymously) Jewel's Apologia for the Church of England, Nowell's Catechism, the thirty-nine Articles (in a controversial Latin version), Mocket's own - unique - Latin translation of the Jacobean Book of Common Prayer, a brief summary of the official Anglican Homilies and Mocket's treatise Disciplina et Politia Ecclesiae Anglicanae with the variants of his little-known manuscript and the issues of 1616 and 1617 of the printed edition. The whole volume is given in facsimile, the text being that of 1617 (edited). James I condemned the edition to be burnt. It is therefore little known. The introduction (by M.A. Screech) discusses why so important a book was burnt, with the result that it - as well as this edition of Jewel's Apologia and Nowell's Catechism - is all but unknown
