Women in Christian traditions by Rebecca Moore( )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women in Christian Traditions offers a concise and accessible examination of the roles women have played in the construction and practice of Christian traditions, revealing the enormous debt that this major world religion owes to its female followers. It recovers forgotten and obscured moments in church history to help us to realize a richer and fuller understanding of Christianity. This text provides an overview of the complete sweep of Christian history through the lens of feminist scholarship. Yet it also departs from some of the assumptions of that scholarship, raising questions that challenge our thinking about how women have shaped beliefs and practices during two thousand years of church history. Did the emphasis on virginity in the early church empower Christian women? Did the emphasis on marriage during the Reformations of the sixteenth century improve their status? These questions and others have important implications for women in Christianity in particular, and for women in religion in general, since they go to the heart of the human condition. This work examines themes, movements, and events in their historical contexts and locates churchwomen within the broader developments that have been pivotal in the evolution of Christianity. From the earliest disciples to the latest theologians, from the missionaries to the martyrs, women have been instrumental in keeping the faith alive. Women in Christian Traditions shows how they did so

Jews and Christians in the life and thought of Hugh of St. Victor by Rebecca Moore( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 12th-century French theologian Hugh of St. Victor is depicted as "a Christian ahead of his time." Although he used negative expressions about Jews and shared fundamental anti-Jewish Christian ideas, such as Judaism having been superseded by Christianity and Jewish responsibility for the death of Jesus, he did not see the Jews as enemies of Christianity. He did not write an "adversus judaeos" work or engage in Jew-baiting, as did many of his contemporaries. Anti-Jewish works attributed to him are rejected as falsifications. One of his key ideas was that the Jews were allies in the Christians' fight against the Devil. Hugh was amenable to a degree of pluralism concerning the truth. The most relevant example was his association with living Jews in regard to Bible interpretation. He appreciated their perspective and what he considered their irreplaceable role in God's plan of salvation. To some degree, he foreshadows a model for today's ecumenical dialogue between Christians and Jews

Beyond brainwashing : perspectives on cult violence by Rebecca Moore( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This analysis reviews the state of the question regarding theories of cultic violence. It introduces definitions and vocabulary and presents relevant historical examples of religious violence. It then discusses the 1960s and 1970s, the period immediately before the Jonestown tragedy. Considerations of the post-Jonestown (1978), and then post-Waco (1993), literature follow. After 9/11 (2001), some of the themes identified in previous decades reappear. The book concludes by examining the current problem of repression and harassment directed at religious believers. Legal discrimination by governments, as well as persecution of religious minorities by non-state actors, has challenged earlier fears about cultic violence
