Shakespeare and the grammar of forgiveness by Sarah Beckwith( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beckwith focuses on the sacrament of penance, which in the Middle Ages stood as the very basis of Christian community and human relations. With the elimination of this sacrament, the words of penance and repentance --"confess," "forgive," "absolve"--No longer meant (no longer could mean) what they once did. In tracing the changing speech patterns of confession and absolution, both in Shakespeare's work and Elizabethan and Jacobean culture more broadly, Beckwith reveals Shakespeare's profound understanding of the importance of language as the fragile basis of our relations with others. In particular, she shows that the post-tragic plays, especially Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest, are explorations of the new regimes and communities of forgiveness. Drawing on the work of J.L. Austin, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Stanley Cavell, Beckwith enables us to see these plays in an entirely new light, skillfully guiding us through some of the deepest questions that Shakespeare poses to his audiences."--publisher

Our heritage, our future : the BLM and America's public lands( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is unique in that it draws largely from the firsthand experiences of current and former [Bureau of Land Management] BLM employees ... they have lived a specialized history, implementing evolving public land management direction and meeting the late 20th and early 21st century challenges of multiple use management in the face of increasing demands for public land users. BLM produced 'Our Heritage, Our Future: The BLM and America's Public Lands' as part of a commemoration of two important anniversaries: the creation of the General Land Office in 1812 and passage of the Homestead Act of 1862. The Public Lands Foundation, which is largely comprised of BLM retirees, provided assistance in developing some of the material in this book"--Page xi
Catholicism and Catholicity : Eucharistic communities in historical and contemporary perspectives( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an idea, as an ideal and as a practice, the Eucharist has always put the most pressure on the persistent, productive tension between catholicism and catholicity. This collection investigates the possibilities of the Eucharist as symbol in its historical and contemporary dimensions. Distinguished scholars in theology, philosophy, history and anthropology explore the nature of eucharistic language, liturgical practice, the uses of Wittgenstein in Catholic theology, the operation of the Eucharist in a globalized culture, the Eucharist in the context of the Hebrew Bible and modern and medieval Judaism, and the relationship between absence and presence as understood in eucharistic practice."--Jacket

Shakespeare and the Grammar of Forgiveness by Sarah Beckwith( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare lived at a time when England was undergoing the revolution in ritual theory and practice we know as the English Reformation. With it came an unprecedented transformation in the language of religious life. Whereas priests had once acted as mediators between God and men through sacramental rites, Reformed theology declared the priesthood of all believers. What ensued was not the tidy replacement of one doctrine by another but a long and messy conversation about the conventions of religious life and practice. In this brilliant and strikingly original book, Sarah Beckwith traces the fortunes of this conversation in Shakespeare's theater.Beckwith focuses on the sacrament of penance, which in the Middle Ages stood as the very basis of Christian community and human relations.
