Consul of God : the life and times of Gregory the Great by Jeffrey Richards ( Book )
11 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gregory the Great, whose reign spanned the years between 590 and 604 A.D., was one of the most remarkable figures of the early medieval Papacy. Aristocrat, administrator, teacher and scholar, he ascended the throne of St Peter at a time of acute crisis for the Roman Church. Consul of God, first published in 1980, revises the traditional picture of Pope Gregory. It examines how he organised the central administration of the Papacy and his unremitting war on heresy and schism. Gregory also pioneered a new pastoral tradition in learning, promoted monasticism, and trained the epis

For the authorities in medieval Europe, dissent struck at the roots of an ordered, settled world. It was to be crushed - initially by reason and argument, eventually by torture.

Hollywood's ancient worlds by Jeffrey Richards ( )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few genres have been subject to such critical scorn as the Ancient World epic. Yet, they have regularly achieved huge box office success.

John Ruskin and the Victorian theatre by Katherine Newey ( Book )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This the first sustained study of the interest of John Ruskin in the theatre of his time. It examines Ruskin's active engagement with and influence on the Victorian popular theatre. Ruskin was an enthusiastic and catholic theatre-goer, enjoying pantomime as much as Shakespeare. Through the lens of Ruskin's discussions of pantomime, melodrama, Shakespearean tragedy, and painting and the stage, Newey and Richards offer a new view of the late Victorian stage focusing on London's West End in its heyday"--
Ruskin, the theatre and Victorian visual culture by Anselm Heinrich ( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book brings together original research in theatre and the visual arts, around the common object of a revaluation of the intersections of the theatre and visual culture. Contributors are drawn from a stimulating mix of highly-esteemed and established scholars (such as Shearer West, Jim Davis, Richard Foulkes and David Mayer) and new scholars, bringing fresh research materials into the mix. The collection offers a set of essays around a theme of emerging interest in Victorian studies. There are few books focused on the theatre and the visual arts since Martin Meisel's Realizations. Since then, essay length pieces have been published by prominent theatre and art historians, several of whom are contributors to this work. The multi-author nature of this collection of essays allows a broader range of original material to be examined, and a number of critical approaches to be pursued. The collection is made coherent by the focus on John Ruskin's aesthetic and cultural theories, and their application to a re-evaluation of the popular theatre of the late nineteenth century. All contributors are working within a theoretical framework which challenges Modernist historiographical assumptions about a theatre in moral and aesthetic decline in this period--Résumé de l'éditeur
