Geology and religious sentiment : the effect of geological discoveries on English society and literature between 1829 and 1859 by J. M. I Klaver( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with reactions to geological discoveries in early nineteenth-century England. How did theologians cope with new scientific evidence of the antiquity of the world which was contrary to accepted biblical chronology? And what repercussions did this picture have on philosophers poets and novelists? The first part of the book concentrates on Charles Lyell's religious and scientific views. This is followed by a study of William Buckland, Adam Sedgwick and William Whewell, three clergymen who were also geologists. The last section explores the literary reception of the revolutionary discoveries of Lyell and his contemporaries
Scientific expeditions to the Arab world (1761-1881) by J. M. I Klaver( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ivo Klaver discusses the four major expeditions (Danish, French, Prussian, and British) which assembled scientific data in various parts of the Arab world between 1761 and 1881. These unique expeditions were sponsored by governments and official institutions, as opposed to expeditions undertaken by individual collectors. As such they were aimed at satisfying a desire for national prestige in a European imperialistic context, either in the field of knowledge or in the field of trade. At the same time they were epic adventures for the brilliant and dedicated naturalists involved, several of whom paid with their lives for their single-minded determination to make new discoveries and record them. To date little work has been done on the botanical and zoological results of the Danish and French expeditions, and no study has yet dealt with the German and English ones. The expeditions are reconstructed through private letters and diaries of the naturalists which are brought together for the first time in a single book, and which throw fascinating new light on the personalities involved and the extreme hardships they endured. As such it is a major contribution to the study of travel in the Middle East in this period, as well as to the scientific treatment of the area. -- Book Jacket
Charles Kingsley : faith, flesh, and fantasy( Book )

5 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Novelist, poet, Anglican priest and controversialist, Charles Kingsley (1819-1875) epitomises the bustling Victorian man of faith and letters, a prolific polymath as ready to break a lance with John Henry Newman over Christian doctrine as he was to preach to schoolchildren on the virtues of manly, physical struggle. Kingsley's The Water-Babies and Westward Ho! were best-sellers which became classics of children's literature. Kingsley has come to epitomize the Victorian age. On closer inspection Kingsley is harder to categorise: a socialist who was also an imperialist, a Chartist revolutionary who was Queen Victoria's favourite novelist, a natural theologian who popularized Darwin, a priest who celebrated sex as sacrament, Kingsley only appears straightforward if you consider him one piece at a time. The debates he shaped remain with us today: faith and sexuality, economics and exploitation, race and identity. The aim of this book is to present the whole man: to consider the public crusades for public health alongside the most private sexual fantasies of sexual intercourse; to consider the ardent imperialist alongside the Darwinist. It will be of interest to all students of Victorian Studies, as well as of British/Imperial History, Church History and especially the History of Science"--
Garibaldi e gli ideali democratici internazionali convegno interdisciplinare: Urbino (Italia), Columbia (South Carolina), Porto Alegre (Brasile)( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in Italian and English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collects the papers presented at a conference on the influence of Garibaldi's ideas and actions on movements of independence in different countries all over the world. The book is divided into three parts. The first part is a historical approach dealing with the international idea of democracy in the nineteenth century; the second part analyzes from different points of view the creation of the myth of Garibaldi; the third part shows how the symbolical projection of the hero finds expression in literature, journalism and in the movies. The essays in this volume are addressed to scholars of the history of the Italian Risorgimento as well as to all those who are interested in intercultural relationships from an interdisciplinary perspective."--Page 4 of cover
