Download or read The Mirror of Simple Souls PDF, written by Margaret Porette and published by University of Notre Dame Pess. This book was released on 1999-05-15 with total page 202 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Dr. Romana Guarnieri, in a letter to Osservatore Romano (16 June 1946), announced her discovery that Margaret Porette (d. 1 June 1310) was the author of The Mirror of Simple Souls, certainly a major French document of pre-Reformation spirituality, a sensation was created in the academic world. Although The Mirror is one of the few heretical documents to have survived the Middle Ages in its entirety, both its title and its authorship were among the most persistent and troublesome problems of scholarly research in the field of medieval vernacular languages. The Mirror, in its original French, survives only in the fifteenth-century manuscript which the great Condé (Louis II de Bourbon) had acquired for his palace at Chantilly. And, so far as can be known, all that remains with which to compare the readings of this manuscript text are those translations of The Mirror which, also in manuscript, are to be found in Latin, Italian, and Middle English. This edition of The Mirror of Simple Souls is a translation from the French original with interpretive essays by Edmund Colledge, O.S.A., Judith Grant, and J.C. Marler, and a foreword by Kent Emery, Jr. The translators of this Modern English version rely primarily on the French, yet take other medieval translations into account. As a result, this edition offers a reading of The Mirror which solves a number of difficulties found in the French, and the introductions contributed by the translators narrate the archival history of the book, for which Margaret Porette was burned alive in Paris in 1310.

Download or read Causality and Resemblance PDF, written by Maria-Jesús Soto-Bruna and published by Georg Olms Verlag. This book was released on 2018 with total page 182 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Las diversas contribuciones de este volumen se encuadran en la especulación medieval cosmológico-metafísica que versa sobre la cuestión central acerca de la unidad y la multiplicidad del Logos en el cosmos. Debido a la ausencia de una interpretación homogénea -henología versus ontología- en los estudios medievales acerca del significado de la natura, propone estudiar cuáles han sido las vías principales de justificación del contenido de dicha natura como explicación y manifestación (explicatio) de un principio artífice causal. Se profundiza en las nociones de unidad y pluralidad imbricadas en un mundo en el que el Logos se manifiesta -al modo de causalidad inmanente- en diversos ámbitos de la legibilidad de lo natural. La selección de líneas significativas -que giran históricamente, de modo precedente, o consecuente, alrededor de la polémica del Liber de causis- servirá para un diálogo con algunas exposiciones contemporáneas acerca de la recuperación de la concepción del Logos clásico; tal como se plantea, por ejemplo, en H. G. Gadamer y J.-L. Nancy. *** Die Beiträge dieses Sammelbandes erörtern die für die kosmologisch-metaphysische Spekulation des Mittelalters zentrale Frage nach der Einheit und Vielheit des Logos im Kosmos. Jenseits der üblichen Gegenüberstellung von Henologie und Ontologie, wie sie in der Forschung über die mittelalterliche Konzeption der natura noch weitgehend dominierend ist, wird hier der Versuch unternommen, einige der Hauptlinien zu skizzieren, auf denen die Rechtfertigung der Auffassung stattgefunden hat, nach der die Natur im Ganzen als Entfaltung und Manifestation (explicatio) eines künstlich-schöpferischen kausalen Prinzips zu begreiffen ist. Dabei spielt die Polemik um das sogenannte Liber de causis vom historischen und systematischen Standpunkt aus eine zentrale Rolle. Im Zusammenhang mit der Diskussion klassischer mittelalterlicher Positionen wird schließlich auch die Möglichkeit eines produktiven Dialogs mit zeitgenössischen Konzeptionen erörtert, die auf eine Rehabilitierung der klassischen Logos-Auffassung abzielen, so etwa bei Autoren wie H.-G. Gadamer und J.-L. Nancy.
Download or read Way Back To God PDF, written by Douglas Dales and published by ISD LLC. This book was released on 2019-04-25 with total page 239 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bonaventure was a great pastor and preacher, and also a very effective teacher. His writing shows clarity and conviction, and his authority arose from his profound grasp of Scripture and patristic monastic tradition. The force behind how he wrote sprang from his keen sense of the significance of Francis and Clare and all that flowed from them, not least into his own spiritual life and experience as a person of deep contemplative and mystical prayer. Way Back to God is a comprehensive conspectus and study of how Bonaventure taught Christian theology and applied it to spiritual life. It is intended to be a guide through most of his writings (though not as a substitute for reading them). It provides a bridge into his thought, and also a remarkable hand-book of Christian theology in its bearing upon spiritual life. Douglas Dales' new work enables Bonaventure's distinctive spiritual theology to be seen as a whole, as well as making his writings, in Latin or English, accessible and attractive.

Download or read Beyond Piety PDF, written by Gilberto Cavazos-Gonzalez and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2010-08-01 with total page 138 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Who doesn't want a liberated life? Jesus offers us liberation as we grow in a Christian spiritual life. But first we need to liberate our concept of Christian Spirituality from ideas that relegate it to Church on Sunday, new age self help, devotional or ascetical practices, or fundamentalist aggression. Traditionally, Christian spirituality liberates Jesus' disciples from personal sin and helps them to challenge sin's social consequences so that once liberated, they will work to liberate others. Christian spirituality (living the Gospel) brings good news for the poor, liberty for the captives, recovery of sight for the blind, and freedom for the oppressed. This is what Jesus came to do, and this is what we as his disciples are called to do as we live our Christian callings in the world. Whether we are at home, work, or play we are called to be Christian. Beyond Piety invites readers to grow in their understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Christ. More than a book on Franciscan or Hispanic Spirituality, this book is about the Christian Spirituality all Christians are called to live. It is about our human and Christian identity and the God we believe in. It is about getting to know the Word of God and letting that Word get to know us. It is about worship and religious devotion and moving beyond piety to Christian action. It is about the call to justice and liberation.

Download or read The Soul as Virgin Wife PDF, written by Amy Hollywood and published by University of Notre Dame Pess. This book was released on 2000-12-05 with total page 299 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Soul as Virgin Wife presents the first book-length study to give a detailed account of the theological and mystical teachings written by women themselves, especially by those known as beguines, which have been especially neglected. Hollywood explicates the difference between the erotic and imagistic mysticism, arguing that Mechthild, Porete, and Eckhart challenge the sexual ideologies prevalent in their culture and claim a union without distinction between the soul and the divine. The beguines' emphasis in the later Middle Ages on spiritual poverty has long been recognized as an important influence on subsequent German and Flemish mystical writers, in particular the great German Dominican preacher and apophatic theologian Meister Eckhart. In The Soul as Virgin Wife, Amy Hollywood presents the first book-length study to give a detailed textual account of these debts. Through an analysis of Magdeburg's The Flowing Light of the Godhead, Marguerite Porete's Mirror of Simple Souls, and the Latin commentaries and vernacular sermons of Eckhart, Hollywood uncovers the intricate web of influence and divergence between the beguinal spiritualities and Eckhart.

Download or read Liturgy and the Beauty of the Unknown PDF, written by Dr David Torevell and published by Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.. This book was released on 2013-04-28 with total page 220 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Contemporary culture is rediscovering the importance of beauty for both social transformation and personal happiness. Theologians have sought, in their varied ways, to demonstrate how God's beauty is associated with notions of truth and goodness. This book breaks new ground by suggesting that liturgy is the means par excellence by which an experience of beauty is communicated. Drawing from both secular and religious understandings, in particular the mystical and apophatic tradition, the book demonstrates how liturgy has the potential to achieve the one ultimately reliable form of beauty because its embodied components are able to reflect the disturbing beauty of the One to whom worship is always offered. Such components rely on understanding the aesthetic dynamics upon which liturgy relies. This book draws from a broad range of disciplines concerned with understanding beauty and self-transformation and concludes that while secular utopian forms have much to contribute to ethical transformation, they ultimately fail since they lack the Christological and eschatological framework needed, which liturgy alone provides.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Acute Melancholia and Other Essays deploys spirited and progressive approaches to the study of Christian mysticism and the philosophy of religion. Ideal for novices and experienced scholars alike, the volume makes a forceful case for thinking about religion as both belief and practice, in which traditions marked by change are passed down through generations, laying the groundwork for their own critique. Through a provocative integration of medieval sources and texts by Jacques Derrida, Judith Butler, Talal Asad, and Dipesh Chakrabarty, this book redefines what it means to engage critically with history and those embedded within it.

Download or read Desire in Dante and the Middle Ages PDF, written by Manuele Gragnolati and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-07-05 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume takes Dante's rich and multifaceted discourse of desire, from the Vita Nova to the Commedia, as a point of departure in investigating medieval concepts of desire in all their multiplicity, fragmentation and interrelation. As well as offering several original contributions on this fundamental aspect of Dante's work, it seeks to situate the Florentine more effectively within the broader spectrum of medieval culture and to establish greater intellectual exchange between Dante scholars and those from other disciplines. The volume is also notable for its openness to diverse critical and methodological approaches. In considering the extent to which modern theoretical paradigms can be used to shed light upon the Middle Ages, it will interest those engaged with questions of critical theory as well as medieval culture.
