Shapers of the great debate on the freedom of religion : a biographical dictionary by Jonathan Wright( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First Amendment is categorical and concise on religion and the state: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Nevertheless, these few words have caused much confusion and controversy for successive generations. The debate over religious freedom has often come to the forefront during American history. Since colonial times, Americans have debated how to interpret and apply the First Amendment. Through biographical histories of individuals involved in the freedom of religion debates, readers will discover how individuals' t
The evolution of begging : competition, cooperation, and communication by Jonathan Wright( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Begging in nestling birds has become the model system for investigations into evolutionary conflicts of interest within families and the honest signalling of offspring need. Although originally inspired by theoretical treatments of parent-offspring conflict and its resolution, the field now includes a wide range of work in behaviour, physiology and evolutionary biology." "Leading researchers in avian begging and related fields were asked to contribute a chapter on a topic they found particularly exciting or novel. This book is the result of their enthusiastic response. The evolution of begging includes the full range of theoretical, empirical and methodological advances in the field and points the way for further research. As such, it constitutes a comprehensive reference for students, teachers and researchers with an interest in behaviour and evolution, and a source of ideas and inspiration for future investigations in this dynamic area."--BOOK JACKET
The ambassadors : from ancient Greece to the nation state by Jonathan Wright( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the ambassadors, who were at once diplomats, explorers and chroniclers of exotic civilisations.

Layered landscapes : early modern religious space across faiths and cultures by Eric Nelson( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores the conceptualization and construction of sacred space in a wide variety of faith traditions: Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and the religions of Japan. It deploys the notion of "layered landscapes" in order to trace the accretions of praxis and belief, the tensions between old and new devotional patterns, and the imposition of new religious ideas and behaviors on pre-existing religious landscapes in a series of carefully chosen locales: Cuzco, Edo, Geneva, Granada, Herat, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Kanchipuram, Paris, Philadelphia, Prague, and Rome. Some chapters hone in on the process of imposing novel religious beliefs, while others focus on how vestiges of displaced faiths endured. The intersection of sacred landscapes with political power, the world of ritual, and the expression of broader cultural and social identity are also examined. Crucially, the volume reveals that the creation of sacred space frequently involved more than religious buildings and was a work of historical imagination and textual expression. While a book of contrasts as much as comparisons, the volume demonstrates that vital questions about the location of the sacred and its reification in the landscape were posed by religious believers across the early-modern world

The Jesuit suppression in global context : causes, events, and consequences by Jeffrey D Burson( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1773, Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Society of Jesus, a dramatic, puzzling act that had a profound impact. This volume traces the causes of the attack on the Jesuits, the national expulsions that preceded universal suppression, and the consequences of these extraordinary developments. The Suppression occurred at a unique historical juncture, at the high-water mark of the Enlightenment and on the cusp of global imperial crises and the Age of Revolution. After more than two centuries, answers to how and why it took place remain unclear. A diverse selection of essays - covering France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, China, Eastern Europe, and the Americas - reflects the complex international elements of the Jesuit Suppression. The contributors shed new light on its significance by drawing on the latest research. Essential reading on a crucial yet previously neglected topic, this collection will interest scholars of eighteenth-century religious, intellectual, cultural, and political history."--Page 4 de la couverture
Jesuit survival and restoration : a global history, 1773-1900 by Robert A Maryks( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book leading scholars from around the world discuss the most dramatic event in the Society of Jesus's history. The order was suppressed by papal command in 1773 and for the next forty-one years ex-Jesuits endeavoured to keep the Ignatian spirit alive and worked towards the order's restoration. When this goal was achieved in 1814 the Society entered one of its most dynamic but troubled eras. The contributions in the volume trace this story in a global perspective, looking at developments in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas

Separation of church and state by Jonathan A Wright( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining an issue that has been a matter of controversy since the founding of the United States, this volume offers a chronological survey that helps put the ongoing debate in broad historical context. The book briefly traces the earliest instances of tension between church and state within the Western tradition, from the era of Constantine to the Reformation, before moving on to the American experience and the experiences of various religious groups during the early republic and 19th century. Attention is paid to the colonial debates about the ideal relationship between faith and politics, the 18th-century trends that culminated in a constitutional settlement. This tour of the American church/state issue revisits past controversies and personalities in the hope of enlightening present-day debates. Contrary to popular belief, the Constitution does not contain the phrase "separation of church and state." The First Amendment states only that the government cannot pass laws establishing or prohibiting religious practices. What were the intentions of the Founding Fathers when it came to the relationship between faith and politics? What do those intentions mean today? Finally, the book focuses on the post-1940 era, during which church-state controversies came before the Supreme Court. In the course of the discussion, readers will learn about complex legal and theological issues and debates between the great and powerful, but also about ordinary Americans whose religious scruples led to some of the most important legal cases in U.S. history
