Not sparing the child : human sacrifice in the ancient world and beyond : studies in honor of Professor Paul G. Mosca by Vita Daphna Arbel( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The role of human sacrifice in the ancient Mediterranean world and its implications continue to be topics that fire the popular imagination and engender scholarly discussion and controversy. This volume provides balanced and judicious treatments of the various facets of these topics from a cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural perspective. It provides nuanced examinations of ancient ritual, exploring the various meanings that human sacrifice held for antiquity, and examines its varied repercussions up into the modern world. The book explores evidence to shed new light on the origins of the rite, to whom these sacrifices were offered, and by whom they were performed. It presents fresh insights into the social and religious meanings of this practice in its varied biblical landscape and ancient contexts, and demonstrates how human sacrifice has captured the imagination of later writers who have employed it in diverse cultural and theological discourses to convey their own views and ideologies. It provides valuable perspectives for understanding key cultural, theological and ideological dimensions, such as the sacrifice of Christ, scapegoating, self-sacrifice and martyrdom in post-biblical and modern times"--

Vocabulary Growth Through the Use of Context by Paul C Burns( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The use of context clues for vocabulary development is discussed. To the list of contextual aids already identified--pictorial, verbal, experiential, and organizational--may be added spoken context and set context. The advantages of using context are discussed, and an analysis of the nature of text material is presented. Ways of developing effective uses for context aids include emphasizing reading for meaning, providing quantities of appropriate reading material, pretesting to diagnose and providing practice in needed areas, emphasizing context clue development through oral and listening situations, teaching students to go beyond a single word in the search for meaning, discussing how meaning can be derived from context, providing all types of content situations, giving students the opportunity to apply skills, and developing in students a general appreciation for words and language structure. Cautions for the use of context clues and a bibliography are included. This paper was presented at the international reading association conference (seattle, may 4-6, 1967). (bk)
