Lady E.S. Drower's scholarly correspondence : an intrepid English autodidact in Iraq by E. S Drower( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An edition of the scholarly letters of the English Lady E.S. Drower, famous for her novels, travel accounts, and studies in the Middle East, especially on the Mandaeans. Drower (1879-1972) kept up a lively correspondence with scholars, and the letters here span the years 1938 to the mid-1960s. It presents a window on Near Eastern studies in the mid-20th century, from the viewpoint of an autodidact insisting on-and succeeding in- a place among the academics. Correspondence with many famous scholars and intellectuals are included, such as Cyrus H. Gordon, Rudolf Macuch, Sidney H. Smith, Godfrey R. Driver, Samuel H. Hooke, and Franz Rosenthal. The letters focus on four of Lady Drower's main books: The Book of the Zodiac (1949), Water into Wine (1956), A Mandaic Dictionary (with Rudolf Macuch, 1963), and Drower's hoped-for, crowning achievement: the presumably lost, large ms. : Mass and Masiqta."--Publisher's website

Christian origins( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dealing with a time when followers of Jesus were moving toward separation from the movement's Jewish origins, this volume of A People's History of Christianity tells "the people's story" by gathering together evidence from the New Testament texts, archaeology, and other contemporary sources. Of particular interest are the often-overlooked aspects of the earliest "Christian" consciousness: How, for example, did they manage to negotiate allegiances to two social groups? How did they deal with crucial issues of wealth and poverty? What about the participation of slaves and women in these communities? How did living in the shadow of the Roman empire color their religious experience and economic values?
Late ancient Christianity( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How has Christianity through the ages actually been lived and experienced by ordinary Christians? To address this question, this volume shifts the focus from various Christian elites, whether clerical or theological or political, to "average" people. Centered on the Roman imperial period, twelve historians search for clues to the everyday realities of Christians' lives in the era when Christianity grew from marginal sect to dominant religion. Popular fiction, childrearing and toys, rituals of inclusion, veneration of saints and shunning of heretics, the ascetic impulse, feast days and festivals--all these and more lend color and texture to the story of a "people's" Christianity in this formative stage
