Visionary women : ecstatic prophecy in seventeenth-century England by Phyllis Mack( )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of radical prophecy in seventeenth-century England explores the significance of gender in the thinking and behaviour of hundreds of religious visionaries between 1650 and 1700. The centrepiece of the work is a study of the Society of Friends, or Quakers, by far the largest and most successful of teh radical sectarian groups active during the period of the English civil war and the inter-regnum."--Jacket
In God's name : genocide and religion in the twentieth century by Omer Bartov( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the widespread trends of secularization in the 20th century, religion has played an important role in several outbreaks of genocide since the First World War. And yet, not many scholars have looked either at the religious aspects of modern genocide, or at the manner in which religion has taken a position on mass killing. This collection of essays addresses this hiatus by examining the intersection between religion and state-organized murder in the cases of the Armenian, Jewish, Rwandan, and Bosnian genocides. Rather than a comprehensive overview, it offers a series of discrete, yet closely related case studies, that shed light on three fundamental aspects of this issue: the use of religion to legitimize and motivate genocide; the potential of religious faith to encourage physical and spiritual resistance to mass murder; and finally, the role of religion in coming to terms with the legacy of atrocity.

Politics and culture in early modern Europe : essays in honor of H.G. Koenigsberger by Phyllis Mack( Book )

21 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of essays reflects the interests and expertise of H.G. Koenigsberger, Professor of History at King's College London, who has written and taught widely on early modern Europe, from Sicily and Spain to Germany, France and the Netherlands. The contributors pay tribute to Koenigsberger's range of interest by taking up themes that have resonated through his lectures, seminars and public writings. What emerges from a variety of approaches and topics is an overriding concern with intellectual unity, an overview which encompasses and reconciles the values of the politician or scholar with those of the spiritual idealist. Even the most overtly political of the major cultural figures discussed in these pages, as Robert Kingdon's essay on Calvin demonstrates, bent their political will to the service of an intense spiritual idealism
Heart religion in the British enlightenment : gender and emotion in early Methodism by Phyllis Mack( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a major new study of the daily life and spirituality of early Methodist men and women. Phyllis Mack challenges traditional, negative depictions of early Methodism through an analysis of a vast array of primary sources - prayers, pamphlets, hymns, diaries, recipes, private letters, accounts of dreams, rules for housekeeping - many of which have never been used before. She examines how ordinary men and women understood the seismic shift from the religious culture of the seventeenth century to the so-called "disenchantment of the world" that developed out of the Enlightenment. She places particular emphasis on the experience of women, arguing that both their spirituality and their contributions to the movement were different from men's. This revisionist account sheds new light on how ordinary people understood their experience of religious conversion, marriage, worship, sexuality, friendship, and the supernatural, and what motivated them to travel the world as missionaries."--Jacket
