Ethnographic studies of homosexuality by Wayne R Dynes( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until very recently, anthropology has mainly helped to refute various homophobic theories, such as that homosexuality is the product of a decadent and declining civilization, that it is unknown to "natural peoples" and hence itself unnatural, that it is universally abhorrent, a contagious perversion, and other theories. As we discard these ideas, however, anthropology may help us to develop a better understanding of what homosexuality is and is not

The illuminations of the Stavelot Bible by Wayne R Dynes( Book )

16 editions published between 1969 and 2017 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1978, this book offers a comprehensive study of the illuminations of the Stavelot Bible. The illuminations themselves have been recognized as occupying an important place in the incipient stage of the Romanesque style in the Meuse valley. The two volumes of the Bible contain no less than ninety-seven illuminated initials, almost half of them containing figures. Wayne Dynes's study brings this into context by giving the historical background of the abbey of Stavelot and the manuscript itself, and then the exegetical and illustrative tradition shaping earlier illuminated Bibles. A third chapter examines the question of the assignment of the hands, providing at the same time a survey of the contents. This clears the way for discussions of areas of importance including the famous full-page composition of Christ in Majesty, and analyses key miniatures and groups of miniatures. This procedure serves to clarify the overall scheme of illumination and permit a comparison with earlier achievements in the history of Bible illumination."--Provided by publisher
