The lion and the cross : early Christianity in Victorian novels by Royal W Rhodes( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this comprehensive study interrelating religious thought, history, and the topical literature of the Victorian period, Royal W. Rhodes examines more than 130 religious (and some nonreligious) novels by major and minor writers set in early Christian centuries. These Early Church novels were employed by churchly writers of the Victorian period to treat contemporary religious questions under the disguise of antiquity and are thus important sources for the study of Church history. As various parties within the Anglican Church, Dissenters, and Roman Catholics exploited this subgenre of Victorian fiction for polemical purposes, churchmanship played a critical role in how the novelists re-created the first six hundred years of Christian history. Even secular writers like Wilkie Collins and Walter Pater used this format to address broad theological questions, such as the practice of celibacy, confession, ritualism, and the relation of Church and State. Other writers of Early Church novels discussed in this study include John Henry Newman, Charles Kingsley, Nicholas Cardinal Wiseman, Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Thomas Moore, John Mason Neale, Charlotte Yonge, Frederic Farrar, and Marie Corelli. Rhodes's volume will be of great interest and significance to students and scholars of both Victorian literature and theological history
Eclipse of justice : ethics, economics, and the lost traditions of American Catholicism by George E McCarthy( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A sociologist and a church historian provide a probing scholarly critique of Economic Justice for All, the American bishops' pastoral letter on Catholicism and the U.S. economy." "McCarthy and Rhodes examine the letter's focus on poverty, inequality, and powerlessness in American society. They review classical concepts of social ethics and economic justice as applied by the bishops to analyze the social, political, and economic institutions of America. By examining reactions to the letter from both the political left and right, Eclipse of Justice opens up the full range of debate about the nature of social ethics." "The first part of Eclipse of Justice presents the moral dilemma created by the bishops' critique of liberalism (they pronounced it a "social and moral scandal") and explores the antecedents--papal, episcopal, and lay--that provided the ideas and vocabulary for the bishops' letter. The second part analyzes the pastoral letter and locates it within the larger context of debates about economic structures in modern liberalism. The third part examines attempts of the bishops to relate Christian social doctrine to international political and economic issues, and probes the contributions of liberation theology and dependency theory."--BOOK JACKET

Visionaire( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Our millennium issue: ''the greatest story ever told'' retold in images by modern-day artists and photographers. The intent was to make an issue that was visually provocative but not blasphemous or gratuitously shocking. We worked closely with Dr. Royal Rhodes, professor of religion at Kenyon College, who helped us excerpt passages from the King James Bible. Mario Testino photographed Adam and Eve (dressed in Martine Sitbon and poised to prune with Hermes hedge clippers); Wolfgang Tillmans contributed the Crucifixion; Andreas Gursky's image of a rave became the Exodus; Mary Ellen Mark envisioned a modern day Mary and Joseph; and Steven Meisel imagined the Apocalypse in a series of eerily foreboding fashion images inspired by the painter Odd Nerdrum."--Publisher's website
