Consorting with saints : prayer for the dead in early Medieval France by Megan McLaughlin( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Megan McLaughlin explores the social and cultural significance of prayer for the dead in the West Frankish realm from the late eighth century through the end of the eleventh century. She argues that the primary function of funerary and commemorative rituals in the early middle ages was to sustain the dead as members of the Christian community on earth, and to link them symbolically with the community of saints in heaven. Prayer reflected a network of relationships that bound together the intercessor, the dead, and the divine. Drawing her evidence from liturgical books, theological treatises, sermons, saints' lives, chronicles, and charters, McLaughlin considers both ceremonies precipitated by an individual's death and those performed for the dead as a group. After discussing the commemoration of ordinary people, she focuses on the commemoration of more powerful individuals and enumerates and classifies the meanings attributed to prayer for the dead in the period before the "birth" of purgatory. By studying prayer in its social context rather than treating it as a chapter in the history of theology, Consorting with Saints makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the social, economic, and cultural structures of early medieval society

Long march ahead : African American churches and public policy in post-civil rights America by R. Drew Smith( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Analyzing the extensive data gathered by the Public Influences of African American Churches project, which surveyed nearly two thousand churches across the country, Long March Ahead assesses the public policy activism of black churches since the civil rights movement. Social scientists and clergy consider the churches' work on a range of policy matters over the past four decades: affirmative action, welfare reform, health care, women's right, education, and anti-apartheid activism. Some essays consider advocacy trends broadly. Others focus on specific cases, such as the role of African American churches in defeating the "One Florida" plan to end affirmative action in college admissions and state contracting or the partnership forged between police and inner-city black ministers to reduce crime in Boston during the 1990s."--BOOK JACKET.

The influence of migration on the burden of and response to infectious disease threats in China a theoretically informed review by Chun Hao( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Massive rural-to-urban migration in China may influence infectious disease spread, but the same powerful social forces that reliably promote migration can also be used to design more effective health systems. The authors systematically reviewed eight databases to identify research studies focused on migrant infectious disease epidemiology and control policies. They examined the sequential phases of rural-to-urban migration (pre-departure, travel, destination, interception, and return) in terms of their influence on infectious disease epidemiology and control policies. The migration process has a profound impact on the distribution of airborne, blood-borne, sexually transmitted, and mosquito-borne infectious diseases in addition to influencing potential control strategies. The spread of vaccine preventable diseases in China underscores the need for more responsive vaccination systems among migrants. Scaling up successful pilot migrant infectious disease control policies and new programmes are urgently needed in order to achieve health equity for Chinese migrants
