The popes and the Jews in the Middle Ages by Edward A Synan( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the theological attitudes and practical behavior toward Jews of various popes, from Gelasius I (492-496) to Alexander VI (1492-1503). Pre-Christian Rome was favorable to Jews. The first anti-Jewish laws were introduced by the Christian rulers of the Roman Empire. However, papal Rome used Roman law as a pattern for its legislation, and some provisions favorable to Jews were maintained. All of the popes aspired to convert the Jews to Christianity, sometimes due to practical considerations rather than theological ones. For example, Gregory the Great (590-604), who defined the future policies of the papacy toward the Jews, regarded the existence of a heterodox populace among Christians at a time of war against barbarians and heretics as politically dangerous. Despite this, the popes opposed the forced conversion of Jews, protected their lives and personal freedom, and condemned popular anti-Jewish superstitions. Even at the time of the harshest persecutions, popes like Innocent III respected Jews as people who had a unique role in the history of salvation. In medieval papal documents there are no traces of racism. In the 14th-15th centuries, when the problem of Conversos arose, the popes opposed limitations on "New Christians". The lower clergy and the common people did not always follow pontifical prescriptions, and anti-Jewish violence and forced conversion was a common occurrence. Contends that the papacy bears responsibility for what was done by Christians to Jews

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this contribution to the ongoing debate on the nature and causes of the Islamic conquests in Syria and Iraq during the sixth and seventh centuries, Fred Donner argues for a necessary distinction between the causes of the conquests, the causes of their success, and the causes of the subsequent Arab migrations to the Fertile Crescent.

To the glory of her sex : women's roles in the composition of medieval texts by Joan M Ferrante( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the Glory of Her Sex presents an account of medieval women's activities as correspondents, readers, writers, and literary patrons from antiquity through the fourteenth century. The writings explored here represent a cross-section of virtually every field in historical and literary studies, including Latin literature, romance literature in French, political and religious correspondence, theological and moral treatises written for women, and histories and biographies commissioned by or addressed to women. Reading in the public and private correspondence of medieval women, for example, Ferrante discovered to what degree their involvement in affairs of the world and their role in the work of prominent men have been underestimated. Among the major figures in this panorama are Elisabeth Schonau, Hildegard of Bingen, Hrotsvit, Marie de France, and Christine de Pizan
Convergence culture : where old and new media collide by Henry Jenkins( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Media analyst Jenkins delves beneath the new media hype to uncover the important cultural transformations that are taking place as media converge. He takes us into the secret world of Survivor Spoilers, where avid internet users pool their knowledge to unearth the show's secrets before they are revealed on the air. He shows us how The Matrix has pushed transmedia storytelling to new levels, creating a fictional world where consumers track down bits of the story across multiple media channels. Jenkins argues that struggles over convergence will redefine the face of American popular culture: industry leaders see opportunities to direct content across many channels to increase revenue and broaden markets; at the same time, consumers envision a liberated public sphere, free of network controls. Jenkins explains the cultural shift as consumers fight for control across disparate channels, changing the way we do business, elect our leaders, and educate our children.--From publisher description
