Religious intolerance in America : a documentary history by Lynn S Neal( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first ever documentary survey of religious intolerance from the colonial era to the present, volume editors John Corrigan and Lynn S. Neal define religious intolerance and explore its history and manifestations, including hate speech, discrimination, incarceration, expulsion, and violence. Organized thematically, the volume combines the editors' discussion with more than 150 striking primary texts and pictures that document intolerance toward a variety of religious traditions. Moving from anti-Catholic Ku Klux Klan propaganda to mob attacks on Mormons, the lynching of Leo Frank, the kidnapping of "cult" members, and many other episodes, the volume concludes with a chapter addressing the changing face of religious intolerance in the twenty-first century, with examples of how the problem continues to this day."--pub. desc
Business of the heart : religion and emotion in the nineteenth century by John Corrigan( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 2,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This written narrative recovers the emotional experiences of individuals from a wide array of little-used sources, including diaries, journals, correspondence, and public records. From such sources, Corrigan discovers that for these Protestants the expression of emotion was a matter of transaction. They saw emotion as a commodity and conceptualized relations between people, and between individuals and God, as transactions of emotion governed by contract. Religion became a business relation with God - with prayer as its legal tender. Entering this relationship, they were conducting the "business of the heart.""--Jacket
The spatial humanities : GIS and the future of humanities scholarship by David J Bodenhamer( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geographic information systems (GIS) have spurred a renewed interest in the influence of geographical space on human behavior and cultural development. Ideally GIS enables humanities scholars to discover relationships of memory, artifact, and experience that exist in a particular place and across time. Although successfully used by other disciplines, efforts by humanists to apply GIS and the spatial analytic method in their studies have been limited and halting. The Spatial Humanities aims to re-orient--and perhaps revolutionize--humanities scholarship by critically engaging the technology and specifically directing it to the subject matter of the humanities. To this end, the contributors explore the potential of spatial methods such as text-based geographical analysis, multimedia GIS, animated maps, deep contingency, deep mapping, and the geo-spatial semantic web.--Publisher's description
Religion and emotion : approaches and interpretations by John Corrigan( )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decade the academic study of emotion has developed very substantially across a number of disciplines, including religious studies. This anthology is the first collection of recent papers addressing the topic of religion and emotion. The selected pieces-each a foundational essay in this rapidly evolving field-examine attitudes toward and expressions of emotion in a wide range of religious traditions and periods. Among the themes considered are the relation of emotion to moral or religious norms, the role of emotion in faith, religious emotion as a performance of feeling in ritual contexts, and the relation of emotion to religious language. Specific topics examined range from filial emotions and filial values in medieval Korean Buddhism to weeping and spirituality in 16th-century Jewish mysticism. This volume is designed to provide an introduction to recent work in the field and should appeal to both scholars and students of comparative religion, anthropology, and psychology
Deep maps and spatial narratives( )

15 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deep maps are finely detailed, multimedia depictions of a place and the people, buildings, objects, flora, and fauna that exist within it and that are inseparable from the activities of everyday life. These depiction may encompass the beliefs, desires, hopes, and fears of residents and help show what ties one place to another. A deep map is a way to engage evidence within its spatio-temporal context and to provide a platform for a spatially-embedded argument. The essays in this book investigate deep mapping and the spatial narratives that stem from it. The authors come from a variety of disciplines: history, religious studies, geography and geographic information science, and computer science. Each applies the concepts of space, time, and place to problems central to an understanding of society and culture, employing deep maps to reveal the confluence of actions and evidence and to trace paths of intellectual exploration by making use of a new creative space that is visual, structurally open, multi-media, and multi-layered"--

The Oxford handbook of religion and emotion( Book )

26 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The academic study of religion has recently turned to the investigation of emotion as a crucial aspect of religious life. Seeking to better understand how one affects the other, researchers have begun exploring in nuanced ways the various intersections between our religious lives and our emotional states. This volume offers a collection of essays that together add up to the most comprehensive overview of the interplay between religion and emotion. The essays are grouped into four parts. Part I consists of essays on Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and other world religions. Part II highlights aspects of religious life with special emotional significance -- ritual, music, gender, sexuality, and material culture -- and how each shapes individual and communal emotional performance. Part III delves into the myriad roles of specific emotional states and how they function in assorted religious settings, and Part IV colors the overall discussion with historical perspectives from key figures such as St. Augustine, Snullen Kierkegaard, Jonathan Edwards, Emile Durkheim, and William James. This handbook offers a range of critical perspectives, in the form of syntheses, provocations, and prospective observations that will both inform the work of those already engaged in the field and serve as an ideal entry point for anyone wishing to familiarize themselves with the new academic study of religion and emotion. - Publisher

The hidden balance : religion and the social theories of Charles Chauncy and Jonathan Mayhew by John Corrigan( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boston Congregationalist ministers Charles Chauncy and Jonathan Mayhew were among the most influential social and religious thinkers in Boston in the mid-eighteenth century. This study argues, against the interpretations of some previous historians, that Chauncy and Mayhew produced a complex but coherent body of ideas, and that these ideas were organized closely and self-consciously around the principle of "balance." Writings on society and government are treated alongside theological works, rather than apart from them, and each man's corpus is placed against the background of English ideas as well as within the context of intellectual and social life in Boston. Chauncy and Mayhew were the leading architects of the mid-eighteenth century New England transition from Puritanism to religious rationalism. They were also instrumental in formulating and popularizing the political and social criticisms that led to the American Revolution. The Hidden Balance illustrates the connections between their religious leadership and their political leadership, and in so doing clarifies our understanding of why Chauncy and Mayhew exercised such a profound influence upon their contemporaries--From publishers description
The prism of piety : Catholick congregational clergy at the beginning of the Enlightenment by John Corrigan( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first study to focus on catholick congregationalism, this book illustrates the manner in which the Enlightenment first affected American religious thought and describes the crystallization of a set of terms that continued to guide American thought in the Age of Reason. This book attacks the widely accepted ideas, propounded by Perry Miller, that Enlightenment ideas hastened the demise of religion in eighteenth-century New England. Corrigan argues that Miller misread and misunderstood those New England theologians who were most influenced by the Enlightenment in the early eighteenth century. On Corrigan's reading of these same writers, Enlightenment ideas actually contributed toward the revitalization of congregationalism during this period. Corrigan analyzes the writing of a group of Boston ministers--Benjamin Colman, Nathaniel Appleton, Ebenezer Pemberton, Benjamin Wadsworth, Thomas Foxcroft, and Edward Holyoke--and finds that the catholicks welcomed Enlightenment thought as a needed counterbalance to prevailing views of the world and society as corrupt and dangerous and used them to promote a return to trust in religious community

Emptiness : feeling Christian in America by John Corrigan( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feeling religion by John Corrigan( )

16 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to Feeling Religion analyze the historical and contemporary entwinement of emotion, religion, spirituality, and secularism. They show how attending to these entanglements transforms understandings of metaphysics, ethics, ritual, religious music and poetry, environment, popular culture, and the secular while producing new angles from which to approach familiar subjects. At the same time, their engagement with race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and nation in studies of topics as divergent as documentary film, Islamic environmentalism, and Jewish music demonstrates the ways in which interrogating emotion's role in religious practice and interpretation is refiguring the field of religious studies and beyond.

Religious intolerance, America, and the world : a history of forgetting and remembering by John Corrigan( )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American politics and culture are rife with people or groups demonizing others by projecting their own qualities onto them-from the cries of oppression heard at "tiki riots" to "No puppet, you're the puppet." But as John Corrigan shows, this isn't merely aggravating social behavior or transparent political maneuvering; it's a misdirected expression of trauma that is endemic to American institutions, American conceptions of self, and American history. Time and again, Corrigan shows, American churches in particular have campaigned against intolerance elsewhere even as they have abetted or performed it at home"--
