Eternal fire, diabolical torment, graphic mortification of the flesh and the despairing shrieks of the damned: the idea of Hell has for thousands of years exerted both fascination and terror.Whether expressed in medieval Doom paintings or in modern psychological interpretations, the belief in a ghastly terminus for the souls of the cursed has proved remarkably resilient and persistent.Why has hell retained this extraordinary potency, even as Western society has become more sceptical and secular? In her rich and wide-ranging book, Margaret Kean tells the history of hell through literature, philosophy, art, music and film. From Dante and Bosch to Blake and Milton, and from Joseph Conrad and Primo Levi to Angel Heart, Alien 3 and Event Horizon, Kean vividly explores hell as both secular confessional and divinely ordained penal colony as metaphor for alienation and infernal locale for ones never-ending worst nightmare.

The High Middle Ages were remarkable for their coherent sense of Christendom, marked by uniform rituals of birth and death and worship.That uniformity achieved perhaps its most perfect intellectual expression in the thought of the Western Christian thinkers who are sometimes called scholastic theologians. These philosophers produced (during roughly the period 10501350 CE) a cohesive body of work from their practice of theology as an academic discipline in the university faculties of their day. Richard Cross elegant and stylish textbook designed specifically for modernday undergraduate use on medieval theology and philosophy courses offers the first focused introduction to these thinkers based on the individuals themselves and their central preoccupations. Key themes of medieval theology, including famous axioms like Ockhams Razor, are here made fully intelligible and transparent.

Born out of a love of language, text, classical learning, art, philosophy and philology, the Christian Humanist project lasted beyond the turmoil of sixteenth-century Europe to survive in a new form in post-Reformation thought. Jonathan Arnold here explores the finest intellects of late-Renaissance Europe, providing an essential guide to the most important scholars, priests, theologians and philosophers of the period, now collectively known as the Christian Humanists. The Great Humanists provides an invaluable context to the philosophical, political and spiritual state of Europe on the eve of the Reformation through inter-related biographical sketches of Erasmus,Thomas More, Marsilio Ficino, Petrarch, Johann Reuchlin and many others. The legacy of these thinkers is still relevant and widely studied today, and this book will make invaluable reading for scholars and students of philosophy and early-modern European history.

From the earliest centuries of the church, asceticism and the contemplative life have been profoundly important aspects of Western Christianity. And in assessing the glories of Western civilisation, perhaps the best place to start is within medieval monastic institutions, not outside of them. For while monasteries withdrew from the main currents of their societies, until the rise of universities in the 12th century they provided fertile soil and sanctuary to the liberal arts and sciences as well as those who wanted to spend their lives focused upon God. In this first general history of monasticism since 1900, Andrea Dickens explores the cloistered communities and individuals who have aspired to the ascetic ideal in their religious life, assessing the impact they have made on the wider church and its practices. She discusses some of the best known names in Christian history, and traces the monastic impulse from its beginnings in the Egyptian desert up to the present-day ecumenical Taiz community.

Councils have been of fundamental importance to the historical development of the Catholic Church. From the First Council of Nicaea in 325 CE to the reforming Second Vatican Council of 1962-5, the conciliar movement has more often than not represented the interests and prerogatives of the mass of the faithful: frequently especially from medieval times as a bulwark against the untrammelled supremacy of the Pope. Norman Tanner is arguably the outstanding scholar of church councils writing in English, and his work provides an essential framework to our understanding of the development of Western Catholicism. In this volume, which assembles some of his best work on the topic, he reflects on the legacy of conciliarism, and shows how and why the apostolic spirit of Nicaea was to resurface at Vatican II.

Whether in recent popular culture, or back across countless centuries, angels have perpetually enthralled and even terrified us. For sceptics, angels may be no more than metaphors: poetic devices to convey, at least for those with a religious sensibility, an active divine interest in creation. But for others, angels are absolutely real creatures: manifestations of cosmic power with the capacity either to enlighten or annihilate those whose awestruck paths they cross. Valery Rees offers the first comprehensive history of these beautiful, enigmatic and sometimes dangerous beings, whose existence and actions have been charted across the eons of time and civilization.Whether exploring the fevered visions of Ezekiel and biblical cherubim; Persian genii; Arab djinn; Islamic archangels; or Wim Wenders Wings of Desire and the more benign idea of the watchful guardian angel, the author shows that the ubiquity of these celestial messengers reveals something profound, if not about God or the devil, then about ourselves: our perennial preoccupation with the transcendent.

The middle of the seventeenth century was one of the most turbulent periods in Englands history. As three civil wars divided and slaughtered families and communities, and as longstanding institutions like the House of Lords, the Established Church and even the monarchy were unceremoniously dismantled, so a feverish sense of living on the cusp of a new age gripped the nation. Radical Religion in Cromwells England is the first genuinely concise and accessible history of the fascinating ideas and popular movements which emerged during this volatile period. Andrew Bradstock critically appraises each group and its ideas, taking into account the context in which they emerged, the factors which influenced them, and their significance at the time and subsequently.The role of political, religious, economic and military factors in shaping radical opinion is explored in full, as is the neglected contribution of women to these movements.

Reginald Scot published his remarkable book The Discoverie of Witchcraft in 1584. Englands first major work of demonology, witchcraft and the occult, the book was unashamedly sceptical. It is said that so outraged was King James VI of Scotland by its disbelieving nature that he ordered every copy to be destroyed.Yet for all the opprobrium directed at Scot, it is a paradox that his detailed account of sorcery and legerdemain helped strengthen the hold of European demonologies in England while also inspiring the distinctively English tradition of secular magic and conjuring. Scots influence was considerable. Shakespeare drew on The Discoverie of Witchcraft for his depiction of the witches in Macbeth. So too did fellow-playwright Thomas Middleton in his eponymous tragicomedy The Witch. Recognising Scots central importance in the history of ideas, Philip Almond places him in the febrile context of his age, examines the chief themes of his work and shows why his writings became a sourcebook for aspiring magicians and conjurors for several hundred years.

The ambiguities of Iraq and Afghanistan have forced us to revisit the validity of what constitutes a supposedly just war. In such critical circumstances, a sustained reexamination of the basis for contemporary just war theory is desperately urgent and required. This is precisely what Patrick Provost-Smith offers in this powerful and original re-evaluation of the topic.The author recognises that a coherent account of the ethics of modern warfare can only begin with history. He therefore explores the great sixteenth century debates about the nature of conflict, focusing on the Spanish conquistadors and their evangelisation of Mexico and Peru. He then shows how these debates were later appropriated by Spanish missionaries in the Philippines with a view to the conquest of China. In assessing previous discussions over just wars, Provost-Smith puts a whole new complexion on how current moral theory about war might be understood.

J.E. Thomas, University of Nottingham


In the 18th and 19th centuries, revolutionary dissent, political upheaval and social protest spread throughout Europe and Wales was no exception. In this unique examination of British social history, J.E.Thomas focuses upon the power of the local gentry in Wales, and their relationship with the poor and potentially revolutionary population. Early explosions of protest were seen all over Wales, coinciding with the aftermath of the American Revolution and the equally seismic events of the French Revolution; while later revolts went on to provide serious challenges to the British state. Social Disorder in Britain is an important contribution to the study of the history of religion, social protest and the rise of revolutionary movements, and will be essential reading for students and researchers of British history as well as those interested in revolution more generally.

Samuel J. Kuruvilla, University of Exeter


Christianity arose from the lands of biblical Palestine, and to Christians around the world it remains first and foremost the birthplace of Christianity. Nevertheless, the size of the Christian population among Palestinians today living in Israel and the Palestinian territories is now relatively insignificant. Here Samuel J. Kuruvilla argues that Christian Palestinians often employ politically astute as well as theologically radical means in their efforts to appear relevant as a minority community within Israeli and Palestinian societies. He charts the development of a theology of Christian liberation as part of the Palestinian peoples struggle for independence. In doing so, Kuruvilla provides a new perspective of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the role of Christians within it.

A century before Martin Luther and the Reformation, Jan Hus confronted the official Church and helped to change the face of medieval Europe. A key figure in the history of Europe and Christianity and a catalyst for religious reform and social revolution, Jan Hus was poised between tradition and innovation.Taking a stand against the perceived corruption of the Church, his continued defiance led to his excommunication and he was ultimately burned at the stake in 1415.What role did he play in shaping Medieval Europe? And what is his legacy for today? In this important and timely book,Thomas A. Fudge explores Jan Hus, the man, his work and his legacy. Beginning his career at Prague University, this brilliant Bohemian preacher was soon catapulted by virtue of his radical and popular theology to the forefront of European affairs. His story is one of triumph and tragedy in a time of chaos and change.

Paul Sedra, Simon Fraser University, Canada


In this pioneering account of Egyptian educational history, Paul Sedra describes how the Egyptian state under Muhammad Ali Pasha sought to forge a new relationship with children during the nineteenth century. Through the introduction of modern forms of education, brought to Egypt by evangelical missions, the state aimed to ensure childrens loyal service to the state, whether through conscription or forced labour. However, these schemes of educational reform, most prominently Joseph Lancasters monitorial system, led to unforeseen consequences as students in Egypts new modern schools resisted efforts to control their behaviour in creative and complex ways, and these acts of resistance themselves led to new forms of political identity.Tracing the development of a distinctly Egyptian modernity, From Mission to Modernity is indispensable for all those interested in Egyptian history and the history of modern education and reform.

The great German theologian Albert Schweitzer famously drew a line under 19th century historical Jesus research by showing that at the bottom of the well lay not the face of Josephs son, but rather the features of all the New Testament scholars who had tried to reveal his elusive essence. In his thoughtful and provocative new book, Halvor Moxnes takes Schweitzers observation much further: the doomed quest for the historical Jesus was determined not only by the different personalities of the seekers who undertook it, but also by the social, cultural and political agendas of the countries from which their presentations emerged. Moxnes argues that one cannot understand any life of Jesus apart from nationalism and national identity, and that what is needed in modern biblical studies is an awareness of all the presuppositions that underlie presentations of Jesus, whether in terms of power, gender, sex and class.

The Assyrians are the last substantial ethnic group in the world to have preserved Aramaic the language spoken by Jesus and his disciples as its native language. A minority people with distinctive cultural and religious, as well as linguistic, traditions, the Assyrians have in the modern era come under threat from the twin perils of persecution and assimilation.The rise of Islamic exclusivity has further diminished the Assyrian communities, driving them from their ancient homelands. Does diaspora offer them rescue, or oblivion? Eden Naby is the foremost scholar in English of the venerable Assyrian heritage, and in her much-anticipated and lively book she charts the community from its identification with the ancient Akkadian and Assyrian empires through to Christian conversion; subsequent religious fragmentation; genocide in the First World War; and statelessness and dispersal across the globe.This is the first time that the story of the resilient Assyrians has been told in its entirety.

Robert Crowcroft, S.J.D. Green, Richard Whiting (Eds), all at the University of Leeds
Maurice Cowling was one of the most controversial historians and thinkers of the last 40 years and a key figure in modern British Conservatism. His work on intellectual and political history assaulted conventional understanding of the political process and challenged the liberal and secular ideas which have been so pervasive in modern Britain. Here, leading scholars disclose Cowlings vision of British democracy and place it in its broader intellectual context. This book therefore provides a powerful multi-disciplinary explanation of Conservative thought about public life in modern Britain, and sheds light upon the interface between philosophy, politics, religion and British democracy.

Alexander McGregor
During the 1930s, the Catholic Church in the US was engaged in a metaphorical war against the increasingly modern and secular values of the American public. Alexander McGregor offers a detailed account of how the Church, feeling itself to be under siege, used media and particularly cinema to reach out to Americans.The 1930s were the golden age for Hollywood, and the Church saw the film industry as an opportunity to engender a pro-Catholic social moral code among the US population. McGregor examines the ways in which the American Catholic Church sought to directly influence film production through its involvement with censorship bodies such as the Legion of Decency, and, through Catholics in positions of influence, within Hollywood itself.This is a vital new contribution to the history of American cinema and religion, as well as American culture and social history.

Visiting historic buildings is one of Britains most popular pursuits. Visitors, however, are often frustrated by existing guidebooks, which assume much prior knowledge of architectural history and terms.This book presents a new look at cathedrals, abbeys and churches through the eyes of experienced stonemason,Thomas Maude. He uses historical and technical information, colourful anecdotes and his knowledge of building structures and techniques to convey the excitement which they hold in store. This guidebook presents a comprehensive background to the ecclesiastical architecture of Britain, and includes illustrations and anecdotes to make it more accessible to the non-specialist reader.

The University of Oxford was a medieval wonder. After its foundation in the late 12th century, the ideas of brilliant thinkers like the pioneering Franciscan philosopher Roger Bacon and reforming Christian humanist John Colet redirected traditional scholasticism and helped usher in the Renaissance. G.R Evans turns to the elder university and reveals a powerhouse of learning, religion and culture. From dangerous political upheavals caused by the radical and inflammatory ideas of John Wyclif to the bloody 1555 martyrdoms of Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridley; and from John Ruskins innovative lectures on art and explosive public debate between Charles Darwin and his opponents to gentler meetings of the Inklings in the Bird and Baby, Evans brings Oxfords revolutionary events, as well as its remarkable intellectual journey, to vivid and sparkling life.

G.R Evans explores the remarkable and unique contribution that Cambridge University has made to society and culture, both in Britain and right across the globe. Ranging across 800 years of vivid history and religious tumult, Evans here explores great theological thinkers such as John Duns Scotus the 13th-century Franciscan friar who gave his name to dunces and celebrates the extraordinary molecular breakthroughs of Watson and Crick in the 20th century. Moving from the radical new thinking of the Cambridge Platonists and the brilliant scientific discoveries of Isaac Newton to the discovery of the Double Helix and the notorious Garden House Hotel Riot of 1970, the book was published to coincide with the 800th anniversary of the Universitys foundation in 1209.The first short history of its kind, it will be a lasting and treasured resource for all Cambridge alumni/ae.

CHRISTIAN STUDIES AND THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY / I.B.TAURIS HISTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH

THE I.B.TAURIS HISTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH


General Editor: G.R. Evans, University of Cambridge

A series such as this is hugely welcome. Its emphasis on the history of ideas, and on the global not just European experience of Christianity and its manifestations of church, will be valued by students, scholars and general readers alike. The I.B.Tauris History of the Christian Church brings ecclesiastical history into a new era, for a new generation. Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of
the History of the Church, University of Oxford

THE EARLY CHURCH


Morwenna Ludlow, University of Exeter
How did the early Christians manage to establish a religion and institution which, despite persecution, flourished and grew? How did their initial experience of being a despised minority in the Roman Empire shape their sense of privileged identity and uniqueness? And how was it that at least at the outset the first believers were able to exist alongside the same shared traditions, rituals and beliefs of the Jews, despite the Jewish rejection of Jesus as Messiah? Morwenna Ludlow discusses the fragile context as well as the emerging core beliefs of the early Church (including divine creation, salvation, eschatology, the humanity and divinity of Christ and the interrelationships of the Trinity) between 50 and 600 CE. She also examines the process of Christian self-definition in response to groups on the edge of the Church, such as Gnostics, Marcionites, Montanists and Manichaeans, as well as in relation to Judaism. Bringing to vivid life the remarkable history of the early Church, in all its conflict and struggle, the author shows why such a successful faith was able to rise out of such improbable and unpromising beginnings.

THE CHURCH IN THE EARLY MIDDLE AGES


G.R. Evans, University of Cambridge

The creation of a new history of the Church at the beginning of the third millennium is an ambitious but necessary project. Perhaps nowhere is it needed more than in redescribing the Churchs development its life and its thinking in the period that followed the end of the early Church in antiquity.The cultural, social and political dominance of Christendom in what we now call the West, from about 600 to1300 CE, made the Christian Church a shaper of the modern world in respects which go far beyond its religious influence.Writing with her customary authority, and with a magisterial grasp of the original sources, G.R. Evans brings this formative era vividly to life both for the student of religious history and the general reader. She concentrates as much on the colourful human episodes of the time as on broader institutional and intellectual developments.The result is a compelling and thoroughly modern introduction to devotional and theological thought in the early Middle Ages as well as to ecclesiastical and pastoral life at large.

THE CHURCH IN THE LATER MIDDLE AGES


Norman Tanner, Gregorian University, Rome
The Later Middle Ages (13001500 CE) have often been characterized as a period of decline for Christendom. The period has even been called a Babylonian Captivity for the Church, echoing the struggles of the Israelites in exile, and reflecting the transferral of the papacy to Avignon in 1309. Norman Tanner challenges this negative view, examining a vibrant period of ecclesiastical history in its own right rather than just through the lenses of the centuries that preceded and succeeded it. He discusses the trials of the age in the form of the papal schism between 1378 and 1417, the heresies of Cathars, Lollards and Hussites, the Hundred Years War, and the terror of the Black Death.Yet he focuses, too, on the great ecumenical councils, the flowering of intellectual life in the Renaissance and the extraordinarily rich spirituality of mystics like Julian of Norwich, Catherine of Siena and Meister Eckhart.What comes to light in this lively and readable volume is that the later medieval age was actually one of extraordinary achievement for the Church: of deepening and enrichment, as well as of schism and conflict.

EARLY MODERN CHRISTIANITY

Patrick Provost-Smith, Harvard University


Aiming to capture in his volume the emergent worldwide as distinct from just European scale of the intellectual conflicts and debates of the fourteenth through seventeenth centuries, Patrick Provost-Smith describes in his volume a Church undergoing both continuity and rupture in a context of change, duress and deeply formative crisis. He shows that as Europeans of various nationalities and confessions initiated colonization, pacification and evangelization in Mexico, Peru, Japan and China, their perspectives were thoroughly transformed by a New World experience of the other. Covering the period between 1350 and 1650, his book includes topics such as the origins of the Renaissance in the aftermath of the Black Death; the social and religious upheavals of the English Civil War; the Jansenist controversy in Paris; Jesuit missions to Paraguay; the formation of the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith; and the later Chinese rites controversy.

THE CHURCH IN THE LONG EIGHTEENTH CENTURY NEW


David Hempton, Harvard University
David Hemptons history of the vibrant period between 1650 and 1832 engages with a truly global story: that of Christianity not only in Europe and North America, but also in Latin America, Africa, Russia and Eastern Europe, India, China, and South-East Asia. His book relates eighteenth-century Christian thought to the rise of religious enthusiasm pioneered by Pietists, Methodists, Evangelicals and Revivalists, and by important leaders like August Hermann Francke, Jonathan Edwards and John Wesley. A central emphasis of the volume falls on how the Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch and British seaborne powers tried to export imperial conquest, commerce and Christianity to all corners of the planet, which leads to a discussion of the rise and significance of Catholic and Protestant missions. Changes in Christian belief and practice are related to wider social trends, including rapid demographic and urban growth, the early stages of industrialization, the spread of literacy, and the changing social construction of gender, families and identities.

THE CHURCH IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY


Frances Knight, University of Wales, Lampeter
The nineteenth century was one of the most fascinating and volatile periods in Christian history. It was during this time that Christianity evolved into a truly global religion, which led to an ever greater variety of ways for Christians to express and profess their faith. Frances Knight addresses the crucial question of how Christianity contributed to individual identity in a context of widespread urbanization and modernization. She explores important topics such as the Evangelical revival led by the likes of the founder of the Christian Mission later the Salvation Army William Booth; the Oxford Movement under Newman, Keble and Pusey; Mormonism and Protestant revivalism in the USA; socialism and the impacts of Karl Marx and anarchism; continuing theological divisions between Protestants and Catholics; and the development of pilgrimage and devotion at places like Lourdes and Knock. Her book also examines the most significant intellectual trends, such as the rise of critical approaches to the Bible, and the different directions that these took in Britain and America.The authors unique emphasis on the ordinary experience of Christians worldwide makes her volume indispensable for students and general readers who will be fascinated by this sensitive twenty-first century perspective on the nineteenth century.

THE CHURCH IN THE MODERN AGE


Jeremy Morris, University of Cambridge
Given the diversity and complexity of developments in the twentieth century, a coherent account of the Christian Church in the modern period poses unique challenges. But Jeremy Morris aims for just such cohesiveness. He emphasizes the changing relationship of Western churches to the many forms of Christianity in other parts of the world, while also departing from the Eurocentric worldview of previous histories. His volume offers three major perspectives.The first is political, in which the history of the modern Church is assessed through a prism of international conflicts and international relations.The second perspective is regional, in which coverage is given not only to Europe and the Americas, but also to Christianity in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific Rim and Australasia.The authors third major perspective is institutional, in which he discusses particular Christian traditions and their relationships with one another, with other faiths and with wider cultures. An epilogue evaluates the future and prospects for Christianity in the new millennium.

The story of Judaism is a story of paradox. It is the story of how a small cluster of desert tribes gave birth to a monotheistic doctrine that profoundly shaped the history of human civilization. It is the story of how a displaced people, globally dispersed throughout other nations for two and a half millennia, came to forge a modern, secular Israeli state which many Jews believe to have been granted an explicitly divine mandate. Oliver Leaman carefully and creatively explores the nature of these apparent contradictions. A balanced and engaging introduction to Judaism and Jewish life... I highly recommend it.

Almost from the moment, some five centuries ago, that their religion was founded in the Punjab by Guru Nanak, Sikhs have enjoyed a distinctive identity. Now the worlds fifth largest religion, this remarkable monotheistic tradition commands the allegiance of 25 million people and is a global phenomenon. In her balanced appraisal, Nikky-Guninder Kaur Singh reviews the history, theology and worship of a community poised between reconciling its hereditary creeds and certainties with the fast-paced pressures of modernity. She outlines and explains the core Sikh beliefs, and explores the writings and teachings of the Ten Sikh Gurus in Sikhisms Holy Scriptures, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Further chapters explore Sikh ethics, art and architecture, and matters of gender and the place of women in the tradition.

BUDDHISM: An Introduction

Alexander Wynne, Mahidol University,Thailand

The Christian faith has the allegiance of one third of the human race. How a provincial sect, with its seemingly outrageous ideas, became first the sanctioned religion of the Roman Empire and then, over the course of 2000 years, the creed of billions of people, is the improbable story that this book tells. This elegant textbook shows that the history of the religion, while often glorious, is not one of unimpeded progress, but something still more remarkable and human.

A Buddhist philosophy emerged from the Buddhas teachings that was astonishingly rich, profound and elusive. In this new and comprehensive textbook, Alexander Wynne shows that the story of Buddhism as a global system of belief begins with the life of the Buddha in northern India in the fifth century BCE. He discusses the many new advances that have been made in recent years with regard to Buddhist origins, and traces the ways that formative Indian doctrines helped shape the features of later Asian Buddhism.

CHRISTIAN STUDIES AND THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY

A MODERN INTRODUCTION TO THEOLOGY


New Questions for Old Beliefs

CORE TEXTBOOK

Philip Kennedy, University of Oxford


Philip Kennedy here offers the first book that any student with or without religious convictions can profitably use to get quickly to grips with the essentials of the Christian religion: its history and its key thinkers, its successes and its failures. Most existing undergraduate textbooks of theology begin from essentially traditional positions on the Bible, doctrine, authority, interpretation, and God. What makes Philip Kennedys book both singularly important and uniquely different is that it has a completely new starting-point.The author contends that traditional Christian theology must extensively overhaul many of its theses because of a multitude of modern social, historical and intellectual revolutions. Offering a grand historical sweep of the genesis of the modern age, and writing with panache and a magisterial grasp of the relevant debates, conflicts and controversies, A Modern Introduction to Theology moves a tired and increasingly incoherent discipline in genuinely fresh and exciting directions, and will be warmly welcomed by students and readers of the subject.

TWENTIETH-CENTURY THEOLOGIANS
A New Introduction to Modern Christian Thought

CORE TEXTBOOK

Philip Kennedy, University of Oxford


In his new book, Philip Kennedy explores the ways Christian theologians of the 20th century have tried to live a productive religious life in a world overtaken by massive upheaval and innovation.The book is distinctive in a number of respects. First, it differs from other surveys of theology by adopting a biographical method, examining the lives of its subjects in historical context. Second, it is more progressive than its competitors, covering many theologians other than white male professors especially women who have worked outside the academy or on the margins of the churches.Third, it is international, focusing on theologians in all the continents of the world rather than just Europe or North America. Fourth, it makes no assumptions that its readers are religious or that theology is uniquely credible.There is a need for a sensitive new textbook reassessing the subject in the light of modern concerns and scepticism about religion.This book meets that need.

What is unique and arresting about his highly readable book is that the exponents of modern theology whom he discusses are placed firmly and illuminatingly in the context of the turbulent history of the last century.This is a novel, satisfyingly multi-layered and exciting take on the whole story, and it is one that should prove highly attractive to students and general readers alike.

Faith and Uncertainty in Contemporary Societies

M.E. Pelkmans, London School of Economics


Religious and secular convictions have powerful effects, but their foundations are often surprisingly fragile.This book shows that a focus on uncertainty and doubt is indispensible for grasping the role of ideas in social action. Drawing on a wide range of cases, from spirit mediums in Taiwan to Maoist revolutionaries in India, from right-wing populists in Europe to converts to Pentecostalism in Central Asia, the authors analyse the ways in which doubt is overcome and, conversely, how belief-systems collapse.

The ubiquity of public debates about atheism has been startling. However, as Gavin Hyman points out, despite their prevalence and popularity, what often characterises these debates is a lack of nuance and sophistication. They can be shrill, ignorant of the historical complexity of debates about belief, and tend to lapse into caricature.What is needed is a clear and well informed presentation of how atheistic ideas originated and developed, in order to illuminate their contemporary relevance and application.That task is what the author undertakes here. Exploring the rise of atheism as an explicit philosophical position, Hyman traces its development in the ideas of Descartes, Locke and Berkeley. Drawing also on the work of contemporary scholars like Amos Funkenstein and Michael J. Buckley, the author shows that, since in recent theology the concept of God which atheists negate is changing, the triumph of its advocates may not be quite as unequivocal as Hitchens and Dawkins would have us believe.

Music and religion have, throughout history, walked hand in hand. In the rites and rituals of small tribal religions, great world religions, and more recent New-Age and neo-heathen movements, different kinds of music have been used to celebrate the gods, express belief and help believers get in contact with the divine.This innovative book focuses on how mainstream and counter-cultural groups use religion and music to negotiate the challenges of modernisation and globalisation in the European context: a region underexplored by existing literature on the subject. Focusing on Christianity, Judaism, Islam and New Religious Movements, the book explores such topics as Norwegian Black Metal and Neo-paganism, contemporary Jewish music in the UK, the French hip hop scene, the musical thinking of Muslim convert Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam and European dance music culture. It offers an ideal introduction to leading-edge thinking at the exciting interface of music and religion.

Late Antiquity, the period of transition from the crisis of the Roman Empire in the third century to the Middle Ages, has traditionally been considered only in terms of the decline from classical standards. Recent classical scholarship strives to consider this period on its own terms.Taking the reign of Constantine the Great as its starting point, this book examines the unique intersection of rhetoric, religion and politics in Late Antiquity. Expert scholars come together to examine ancient rhetorical texts and explore the ways in which late antique authors drew upon classical traditions, presenting Roman and post-Roman religious and political institutions in order to establish a desired image of a new era.

The interface between the current Shiite landscape and Christian thinking is of the greatest significance for the shifting political and religious dynamics of the Middle East. Sasan Tavassoli here examines Iranian Shiite thinkers encounters with Christian thought since the Islamic revolution of 1979, and provides insight into the cultural and intellectual climate surrounding ChristianMuslim dialogue in contemporary Iran. Placing contemporary Shiite thought in the broad historical context of pre- and post-revolution Iran,Tavassoli offers fresh insight into the dynamism of contemporary Islam and the religious complexities of the Muslim world.

What impact do issues of culture, religion and identity have on Turkeys chances of joining the EU? Are religious and cultural factors per se the primary obstacle to Turkish accession, or is it their interaction with other factors that is prolonging and complicating Turkeys progress towards EU membership? Mirela Bogdani here analyses the complex range of issues that are influencing the process of Turkeys accession to the EU, assesses the positions of different European actors towards Turkeys pursuit of EU membership and identifies the reasons for the European opposition. She also analyses the issues of political Islam, multiculturalism and the compatibility of Islam with democracy.This book will be an important resource for anyone interested in EU politics, EU enlargement policy, EU-Turkey relations, political Islam, multiculturalism, and the relationship between religion and politics.

There is another loneliness, wrote the American poet Emily Dickinson: Not want of friend occasions it, but nature sometimes, sometimes thought. For Kevin Lewis, that other loneliness is uniquely expressive of a rich and resonant state of being that is distinctive to the American psyche as well as central to the mythology of America itself. He calls this state of being lonesomeness. It evokes the luminous landscapes of the West and the cathedral-like space of the Great Plains. It lies at the root of identity and is inseparable from notions of personal discovery and of communion with the varied topography of the United States, whether it be rural hinterland or industrial urban rustbelt. In this continuously stimulating reflection, Kevin Lewis explores in religion, poetry, fiction, country songwriting and art the multiple meanings of that peculiarly American notion of solitariness.

The subject of Islam increasingly attracts global attention.This is to the degree that Middle Eastern commentators sometimes seem to assume that the region is almost homogeneously Muslim. But non-Muslim communities have, for many centuries, played a vital and significant role in the areas rich religious and cultural fabric, and deserve proper assessment in their own right.This timely book offers a lively and comprehensive survey of all the religious communities, other than the Muslim majorities, who inhabit the Middle East today. Separate chapters discuss the history and beliefs of the Alevis, Bahai, Christians, Druze, Jews, Mandaeans, Samaritans,Yezidis and Zoroastrians, highlighting the unique identity and fascinating character of each tradition. Scholars of international repute explore the current position of these communities, and their relationships to their Islamic neighbours, and trace the distinctive contributions that each religion has made to the modern Middle East.

Yezidism is a fascinating part of the rich cultural mosaic of the Middle East.Yezidis emerged for the first time in the 12th century in the Kurdish mountains of northern Iraq.Their religion, which has become notorious for its associations with devil worship, is in fact an intricate syncretic system of belief. Birgl Aikyildiz offers a comprehensive appraisal of Yezidi religion, society and culture.Written without presupposing any prior knowledge about Yezidism, and in an accessible and readable style, her book examines Yezidis not only from a religious point of view but as a historical and social phenomenon. She throws light on the origins of Yezidism, and charts its historical development as part of the general history of the Kurds. Richly illustrated, with accompanying maps, photographs and illustrations, the book will have strong appeal to all those with an interest in the culture of the Kurds, as well as the wider region.

For minority faith groups living in nineteenth-century Iran, religious conversion to Islam both voluntary and forced was the primary means of social integration and assimilation. However, why was it that some Persian Jews instead embraced the emergent Bahai Faith, which was subject to harsher persecution than Judaism? Mehrdad Amanat explores the conversion experiences of Jewish families during this time, and examines the fluid, multiple religious identities that many converts adopted.The religious fluidity exemplified in the widespread voluntary conversion of Iranian Jews to Bahaism presents an alternative to the rejectionist view of religion that regards millennia of religious experience as inherently coercive, oppressive, rigidly dogmatic and a consistently divisive social force.

The figure of the Shaman has always been a prominent motif within the Islamic world, particularly in relation to the mystical domain of Sufism.This new book explores the link between Islam and shamanism in contemporary Muslim culture, examining how the old religion of shamanism was sufized in order to adapt to wider Islamic society. The authors survey shamanic practices in the Turko-Persian area, the Balkans and North Africa, to show how the Muslim shaman, like his Siberian counterpart, cultivates personal relations with spirits to help individuals through healing and divination.They explore the complexities and variety of rituals, involving music, dance and, in some regions, epic and bardic poetry, which demonstrates the close links between shamanism and Islamic arts.This is the first in-depth exploration of Islamized shamanism, and is a valuable contribution to the field of Islamic Studies, Religion, Anthropology, and the culture of the Middle East more widely.

Women have traditionally played a vital part in Islam throughout Central Asia the vast area from the Caspian Sea to Siberia.This ground-breaking and original study explores the fundamental interplay between religious belief and the cultural heritage of music and dance, and is the first book to focus particularly on the role of women. Ritual and music are at the heart of Central Asian and Islamic culture, not only at weddings and funerals but in all aspects of everyday life. Through its in-depth analysis of these facets of cultural life within Central Asian society, From Shamanism to Sufism offers important insights into the lives of the societies in the region.The role of women has often been neglected in studies of religious culture and this book fills an enormous gap, restoring women to their rightful historical and cultural context.

Zoroaster was one of the greatest and most radical religious reformers in the history of the world.The faith that he founded some 2600 years ago in a remote region of central Asia flourished to become the state religion of a great empire, and is still practised today in parts of India and Iran and in smaller communities elsewhere.The foundation texts of this venerable system of belief are the founders own passionate poems, known as the Gathas (Songs), and a short ritual composed soon after his death, called the Liturgy in Seven Chapters.These hymns are the authentic utterances of a religious leader whose thought was way ahead of his time, and are among the most precious relics of human civilization.Yet existing translations are few and frequently hard to access. M.L.Wests new translation, based on the best modern scholarship, makes these powerfully resonant texts available to a wide audience in clear and accessible form.

Ranjit Singh was the first Maharaja of the Sikh Empire and one of the greatest figures in the history of the Punjab. Despite the difficult conditions he faced, including harsh terrain, a mixed ethnic population and surrounding aggressors (particularly the British in India), Ranjit Singh managed to unite the various Sikh factions and built a nation that neighbours soon learnt to treat with respect. It was Ranjit Singhs leadership skills and personal characteristics which kept the Sikh empire strong and united in the face of adversity. Unusually for the time, the empire that Singh led was secular and he sought to promote inter-faith unity through policies of equality and non-discrimination. This new biography sheds new light on this important figure in Sikh history, and illustrates the extraordinary leadership qualities, military prowess and political skills which ensured his success as a leader in challenging circumstances.

When Englishman and Turk fell side by side in the killing fields of the Crimea, it was not the first time that Christian and Muslim blood was shed in the cause of battling a common foe. It is fashionable today to talk of a clash of civilizations, and of an unbridgeable chasm between the Islamic world and Christendom. But in this bold and iconoclastic book, Ian Almond demonstrates that in Europe, the heart of the west, Muslims and Christians were often comrades-in-arms, repeatedly forming alliances to wage war against their own faiths and peoples. As the author shows, any notion that Christian Europe has long been opposed by a Muslim non-Europe grossly misrepresents the facts of a rich, complex and above all shared history.The motivations for these interfaith alliances were dictated by shifting diplomacies, pragmatic self-interest and realpolitik, not by jihad or religious war. This insight has profound ramifications for our understandings of global politics and current affairs, as well as of religious history and the future shape of Europe.

Faith-based development organizations have become a central part of the lives of the women of rural Rajasthan, and have come to represent an important aspect of both individual and collective identities. And yet, religious teachings continue to be used to exclude women from public decision making forums and render them vulnerable to increasing levels of domestic violence. In a unique multi-disciplinary approach, and combining a range of subjects, particularly gender studies, Bradley provides a unique study of the contradictory and complex role of development organizations and faith organizations in the lives of women in rural Rajasthan.

China now attracts global attention in direct proportion to its increasing economic and geopolitical power. But for millennia, the philosophy which has shaped the soul of China is not modern Communism, or even new forms of capitalism, but rather Confucianism. In this stimulating conversation, two leading thinkers from the Confucian and Buddhist traditions discuss the timely relevance of a rejuvenated Confucian ethics to some of the most urgent issues in the modern world: Sino/Japanese/US relations; the transformation of society through education and dialogue; and the role of world religions in promoting human flourishing. Exploring correspondences between the Confucian and Buddhist world-views, the interlocutors commit themselves to a view of spirituality and religion that is focused above all on the universal heart: on harmony between people and nature that leads to peace and to a hopeful future for all humanity.

For nineteenth-century scholars, the Holy Land was not just a region on the surface of the globe it was an intellectual and moral space, charged with the heat of religious debate and with the noisy engagement of those trying to understand the worst crises of Victorian society. It was also a space of inspiration and reflection. Edwin Aikens important new work explores how the Holy Land was understood and written about in Victorian Britain.Through the work of three contrasting scriptural geographers, he shows how ideas about the Holy Land played a key role in the religious and social upheavals of the period.

In secular Europe most people assume that scientific enquiry goes to the heart of fundamental truths about the universe.Yet elsewhere, science is under siege. In Muslim countries, a mere 15% of those recently surveyed believed Darwins theory to be true or probably true.This thoughtful and passionately argued book contends absolutely to the contrary: not only that evolutionary theory does not contradict core Muslim beliefs, but that many scholars, from Islams golden age to the present, adopted a worldview that accepted evolution as a given. Guessoum suggests that the Islamic world, just like the Christian, needs to to take scientific questions quantum questions with the utmost seriousness if it is to recover its true heritage and integrity. In its application of a specifically Muslim perspective to important topics like cosmology, divine action and evolution, the book makes a vital contribution to debate in the disputed field of science and religion.

The tenets of Islam cannot be grasped without a proper understanding of the Quran. In this important new introduction, Muhammad Haleem examines its recurrent themes life and eternity, marriage and divorce, peace and war, water and nourishment and for the first time sets these in the context of the Qurans linguistic style. Professor Haleem examines the background to the development of the surahs (chapters) and the ayahs (verses) and the construction of the Quran itself. He shows that popular conceptions of Islamic attitudes to women, marriage and divorce, war and society, differ radically from the true teachings of the Quran.

What is new in the Quran? What was the nature of the Quranic Revelation? How was the Quranic message transmitted? By the sword or persuasion? The Quran is understood by Muslims and non-Muslims alike as the source and fountainhead of Islam. But very few non-Muslims (and surprisingly few Muslims) have a real understanding of the precepts and historical background of the revelations which came to the Prophet Muhammad. In this book, the distinguished Islamic scholar M.A. Draz, one of the Muslim worlds most erudite authorities of this century, sets out the fundamental principles of the Quran and its much misunderstood and misquoted teachings on gender and women, polygamy, war, faith, Judaism, Christianity and the many other issues on which the Quran pronounces. Draz emphasises the continuity of monotheistic doctrine and ethics through Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

The Safavid period represents an immensely rich chapter in the history of Iranian architecture. In this discussion of Safavid architecture, Kishwar Rizvi gives special consideration to the shrine of Shaykh Safi, built in 1334, as an important template for an emergent Safavid taste. Of both regal and religious significance, the shrines direct relationship to imperial power is unique in Islamic architecture. Rizvi examines the ways in which the transition from a devotional aesthetic to an imperial one represented the young dynastys imperial aspirations, and affected a wide range of public buildings from mosques to palaces during the early Safavid period and beyond.

Muhammad Ali Aziz, Yale University


Scholar, mystic and visionary, Ibn Alwan lived through the transition from Ayyubid to Rasulid rule in thirteenth-century Yemen. He was well known in his time for his critique of the ruling elites and their governance, and left behind a substantial body of writings on Islamic mysticism, theology, law and exegesis of the Quran. Here Muhammad Aziz presents a comprehensive portrait of Ibn Alwan, delineating the religious and political background in Yemen, the development of Sufi orders, the interplay between Sufi, Shii and Sunni traditions, and the impact of Ibn Alwan on the history of Sufism and Islam.The first study of Ibn Alwan in English, Religion and Mysticism in Early Islam is essential reading for all those interested in mysticism, early Islam, Sufism, and religion and history more generally.

The popular perception in the West is that Islamic art has been and continues to be averse to the representation of living beings. This essentialist mainstream opinion is, as Oya Pancaroglu points out, mistaken. Images of Power in Islamic Culture offers a bold, exciting and well informed challenge to what the author demonstrates is a widespread misconception. She presents a hitherto neglected body of textual evidence, dating from the 8th to the 14th centuries, which reveals a rich and multifaceted treatment of images that are indicative of a highly sophisticated figural imagination. Examining the creation, function and use of images and imagery in medieval Islamic art, the author shows that figural art featured in the Islamic religious imagination is extensive, permeating every stratum of medieval Muslim thought. Such images, in their celebration of divine power or presence, did not undermine the monotheistic message of the Prophet, but on the contrary affirmed it.

The spiritual writings of the great Persian poet Rumi (12071273) are often characterised as the supreme expression of Sufism, the fascinating mystical strain that runs through Islamic thought and culture. This important volume brings together international Rumi experts and scholars to explore the ways in which the mysticism of Sufism coloured and shaped Rumis passionate poetic philosophy. Ranging from a comprehensive investigation of the language and spirituality of the Masnavi, Rumis greatest literary work, to the intriguing relationship between Rumis poetic vision and Christians and Sufis, the volume as a whole offers an indispensable companion to the poetry of the man who, perhaps before all others, can best lay claim to reveal the rich complexity of Persias soul.

Widely admired, translated and commented upon, the works of Jalal al-Din Rumi remain largely unexamined from a literary perspective. Emphasis has been placed on him as a spiritual master, and on his Masnavi (Rumis great masterpiece, consisting of Sufi teaching stories given profound mystical interpretations). As a result, the poet has often been concealed from view.Yet there is much to be explored and discovered in the poetic legacy of Rumis entire corpus: his dynamic use of imagery; his mastery of lyrical expression; his creative use of poetic devices; the powerful rhetoric of his narrative structures; and more.This substantial volume, offering contributions from leading scholars of Persian literature and culture, focuses on the poetic art of Rumi and the various ways it interacts with the literary tradition that came before and after him. It further investigates the work of a number of contemporary artists and writers who continue to be inspired by the echoes of his wondrous words.

Recent exploration of that lyricism by Iranian scholars has revealed that, in addition to his masterful use of poetic devices, Hafizs verse is deeply steeped in the philosophy and symbolism of Persian love mysticism.This innovative volume discusses the aesthetic theories and mystical philosophy of the classical Persian love-lyric (ghazal) as particularly exemplified by Hafiz (who, along with Rumi and Sadi, is Persias most celebrated poet). For the first time in Western literature, Hafizs rhetoric of romance is situated within the broader context of what scholars refer to as Love Theory in Arabic and Persian poetry in particular and in Islamic literature more generally.

FAMILY LAW IN ISLAM NEW


Divorce, Marriage and Women in the Muslim World

Maaike Voorhoeve (Ed.), University of


Amsterdam
In both the West and throughout the Muslim world, Islamic family law is a highly debated topic. In the Muslim world, the discussions at the heart of these debates are often primarily concerned with the extent to which classical Islamic family law should be implemented in the national legal system, and the impact this has on society. Family Law in Islam highlights these discussions by looking at public debates and legal practice. Using a range of contemporary examples, this wideranging and penetrating volume explores the impact of Islamic law on individuals, families and society alike.

How Islam treats women is one of the most hotly contested questions of our times. Islamic law is often misrepresented as a single monolithic concept, rather than a collection of different interpretations and practices.To move the debate on Islamic law and gender forward, it is necessary to establish how Islamic law actually operates. This groundbreaking work explores what conditions sustain the most liberal interpretation of Islamic law on gender issues. It examines the different interpretations, histories and practices of Islamic law in different countries, and finds that the political independence of judicial institutions is a far more important factor than the relative conservativism of the society.This wide-ranging book will provide new insights not only for those studying law and gender, but for anyone with an interest in Islamic societies.

Many of the principles prevalent in modern Islamic contract law and commercial practice remain the same as those outlined by the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad, and expounded by scholars of jurisprudence as far back as the 13th century, despite the advancement in time and sophistication of commercial interaction. Maha-Hanaan Balala here provides an analysis of the fundamental principles underlying Islamic law and commerce in comparison with their common law equivalents in the Englishspeaking world. She seeks to draw parallels (and differences where appropriate) to facilitate the growth and development of Islamic commercial and financial law worldwide.

Ibn Battuta (d. 1368 or 1377 CE) is renowned as the greatest traveller in the history of Islamic civilization. A 14th-century contemporary of Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta recounts (in his al-rihla, or travelogue) a series of remarkable journeys stretching from his home in Tangiers to Zaytun in faraway China.Whether sojourning in Delhi and the Maldives, wandering through the mazy streets of Cairo and Damascus, or contesting with pirates and shipwreck, this courageous individual brings to vivid life a medieval world brimming with marvel and mystery. David Waines discusses the subtleties of the al-rihla, revealing all the wonders of Ibn Battutas world to the modern reader. This is a gripping treatment of the life and times of one of historys most daring, and at the same time most human, discoverers.

The 21st century has seen an unprecedented radicalisation of Muslims across the world. In some cases, this has led to terror and violence.Yet as the West pours huge military resources into the war on terror, we still know very little about the ideology which drives the terrorists. Now, for the first time, Kamran Bokhari has made it possible to hear and to digest todays militant Islam in its own words. He presents a range of ideologues from across the globe, including Bin Ladens own deputy, Ayman Zawahari. Bokharis carefully contextualised selection introduces us to radical Islamist thinking on a range of issues such as their perception of Western concepts of democracy, their scepticism towards the Middle East peace process and how to deal with the West. For anyone who wants to understand the phenomenon of contemporary militant Islam, or who wants to know what motivates terrorist thinking, this book is essential reading.

A thorough and detailed survey of Islam and the law in Indonesia today is long overdue. This volume offers an expert and systematic update of the interaction of Islam and positive law (substantive regulations and institutions) in contemporary Indonesia, where Islamic law has developed within a state-approved and secularising bureaucratic structure that valorized local traditions over the scriptures of Islam.The result is an increasingly complex mixture of local traditions and norms and state secularism, with growing social and political pressure for an orthodoxy modelled more closely on Arab cultures.

Tim Lindsey and Kerstin Steiner, both at University of Melbourne (Eds)


The substantive regulations and legal institutions through which the state manages the religions of its Malay minority in contemporary Singapore are the focus of this volume.Through a detailed account of positive law and related religious and social institutions, Lindsey and Steiner explore the balance that the Singaporean government seeks to maintain between its obligations to an indigenous Muslim minority and the needs of its majority non-Muslim immigrant community.

Tim Lindsey and Kerstin Steiner, both at University of Melbourne (Eds)


Malaysia and Brunei both apply a complex hybrid body of positive law to their Malay Muslim majorities.This volume traces the development of a unique Anglo-Malay madhhab in these states, initially by colonial and latterly by successor states.

The built shrines of the Perso-Islamic region are well documented and studied; less is known about the regions sacred rural landscapes, despite their central role as charters of Islamic identity and expressions of local Muslim piety. Jo-Ann Gross argues that it is necessary to take into account both urban and rural shrines to fully understand the role of Islam in the Perso-Islamic world, and here examines the social, cultural and architectural history of Tajikistans diverse Muslim shrines. The book deals with themes of sacred Islamic space, cultural geography, oral tradition, and the networks of relationships between urban and rural shrines and shaykhs within the Sufi, Sunni, Ismaili and Twelver Shii spheres of the Perso-Islamic world.

From highland peasant farmers in Central Asia to Canadian industrialists, the Nizari Ismailis are one of the Muslim worlds most diverse Shia communities.With adherents living in more than twenty-five countries, they embrace peoples of widely different ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. The spiritual leadership of this highly dynamic community has in recent generations come to be known as the Aga Khan.This book, which coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of the present Aga Khans succession as Imam, or spiritual leader, of the Ismailis, assesses the achievements of his Imamat in modernising the communities institutions and creating one of the worlds leading development agencies, the Aga Khan Development Network. In the process the book explores how the present Harvardeducated Aga Khan has attempted to preserve and build on a religious tradition rooted in medieval theology while at the same time embracing the modern world without loss of faith or cultural identity.

Increasingly Islam struggles against negative stereotypes as a religion of intolerance, extremism and fear, which has failed to meet the challenges of modernity. Zidane Meriboute here proposes a fresh perspective on the crisis facing Muslims today. His novel and original approach looks to the Islamic Sufi tradition and the progressive liberal thought of the 12th century philosophers Ibn Rushd (Averroes) and Ibn Sina (Avicenna) as holding the key to a successful transition towards modernity. The humanity and questioning which both Sufism and this progressive thought engender can produce according to the author the foundations of a new Muslim worldview contrary to the current and dangerous fundamentalisms. As the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds grapple to understand how Islam is likely to evolve in the 21st century, the appearance of this book marks a vital contribution to a better understanding of one of todays most intractable problems.

African Studies (SOAS)
In recent years there has been a remarkable surge in Iranian films expressing contentious issues which would otherwise be very difficult to discuss publicly inside the Islamic Republic of Iran such as the role of clergy in Iranian society. Nacim Pak-Shiraz here highlights how many Iranian film directors concern themselves with the content of the religious and historical narratives of culture and society, sparking debate about the mediums compatibility or incongruity with religion and spirituality. She explores the various ways that Shii discourse emerges on screen, and offers groundbreaking insights into both the role of film in Iranian culture and society, and how it has become a medium for exploring what it means to be Iranian and Muslim.

To what extent is the art and architecture of Iran from the Safavid period onwards identifiably Shii? What does this say about the relationship of nation, state and faith in Iran? Here, leading experts trace the material heritage of Iranian Shiism within each of its political, religious and cultural dimensions.

Jalaluddin Rumi (12071273) can only be described through superlatives. For Rumi is the best known and arguably the greatest exponent of the mystical tradition in Islam. The richness of his language, and his penetrating spiritual insights about the divine, mean that Rumi has an enduring capacity to transport readers from within any culture, Islamic or otherwise. Annemarie Schimmel was for many years one of Rumis most sensitive Western interpreters. Her masterfully concise and readable book now published for the first time in English discusses the religious and cultural background of Rumis Sufism and the dominant strands of his imagery. Schimmel shows how Rumis work, while timeless and with enduring cross-cultural appeal, must finally be understood as part of a wider Islamic mystical tradition, albeit an expression of that tradition which remains unsurpassed for its beauty and profundity.

When he died in February 1449, Ibn Hajar (1372-1449) ended a life of surprising contradictions. Who was the boy who rose from obscurity to become one of Egypts most celebrated thinkers and prolific scholars of hadith, and who occupied the most powerful judicial position in the Empire? R. Kevin Jaques describes the formative events in Ibn Hajars life, from the early death of his parents to his preoccupations as student, teacher and author; his marriages; his survival of plague, civil war and foreign invasion; and his strategies for surviving and negotiating the fevered politics of the late Mamluk period. Discussing the most widely read of his subjects works, the author explains how Ibn Hajar creatively drew together the theories of preceding centuries of Islamic scholarship in order to develop a political and theological solution to the problems of his own time one that has guaranteed his fame as an enduring and still inspiring spiritual authority.

Medieval historian al-Tabari (c. 828-923 CE) was a brilliant scholar of Abbasid Baghdad who wrote extensively in all fields of the Islamic science of his day. His massive History of the Messengers and Kings is the primary source for the information that we have about Sasanian Persia and the first three centuries of Islam. As well as being a historical record of outstanding importance, it is also of the greatest interest for what it says about the principles of good Islamic governance. In a concise overview of his life, thought and major writings, Ulrika Martensson explores the philosophy and methodology that underpin Tabaris thinking, and places his work in the context of the complex society that comprised the Abbasid Caliphate.Tabaris argument that effective government is dependent on merit, not preferment, and on the separation of political and religious authority, is shown to have much contemporary resonance for Muslims.

The Ismailis have enjoyed a long, eventful and complex history dating back to the 8th century CE and originating in the early Shi'i tradition of Islam. Dow the centuries, Ismailis of different regions especially in Central Asia, South Asia, Iran and Syria developed and elaborated their own distinctive literary and intellectual traditions, which constitute an outstanding contribution to the culture of Islam as a whole.There are two main groups of Ismailis, each of which follow different lines of spiritual leaders.The bulk of the Ismailis have a line of imams now represented by the Aga Khans, while a smaller group known in South Asia as the Bohras developed their own type of leadership.This collection is the first scholarly attempt to survey the modern history of both Ismaili communities from the middle of the 19th century.

The Muhammad Ali Hamdani Collection in the Library of The Institute of Ismaili Studies represents a large segment of the manuscripts in the library collected over seven generations by an eminent family of scholars from the Da'udi Bohra community in India and the Yemen.The largest part of the manuscripts are of Ismaili religious writings, but there are also a good number of interesting books of general Islamic, or indeed secular content, and these give a rare insight into the whole range of culture of a learned family of Indian religious scholars. The overwhelming majority of the books are in Arabic, but there are also a small number in Persian and in Bohra Gujarati (Gujarati in Arabic script).The kernel of this collection is formed by the manuscripts which 'Ali b. Sa'id al-Ya'buri al-Hamdani (born ca. 1132/1718, died 1212/1798) brought with him when he emigrated from the Yemen to Gujarat around the middle of the 18th century, and of those that he himself copied, before or after his arrival in India.

One of the richest and most rewarding, yet at the same time least familiar, traditions of Muslim literature is that of the Shii Imami Ismailis. Although many great literary treasures of the Islamic world are already available in English translation, those of the Ismailis are only slowly being made accessible to scholars and readers at large. This substantial anthology makes a vital and welcome contribution to that process of wider dissemination. It brings together for the first time extracts from a range of significant Ismaili texts in both poetry and prose, here translated into English by some of the foremost scholars in the field.The texts included belong to a long span of Ismaili history, which extends from the Fatimid era to the beginning of the twentieth century.The translations in question have been rendered from their originals in Arabic, Persian and the different languages of Badakhshan and South Asia.

Mohammed Ali Amir-Moezzi is one of the most distinguished scholars of Shii history and theology currently at work, and in this volume he offers a wide-ranging and detailed survey of the core texts of Shii Islam. Examining in turn the origins and later developments of Shii spirituality, the author reveals the profoundly esoteric nature of the beliefs which accrued to the figures of the early imams, and which became associated with their interaction between material and spiritual worlds.These beliefs were often designated as ghulat, or extreme, by other Muslims, and as a result of such criticisms from within the tradition they have remained little known and misunderstood. The author shows, by contrast, how central and creative the very nature of spirituality was to the development of Shii Islam, as well as to classical Islamic civilisation as a whole.

The fourth volume of the Anthology of Philosophy in Persia deals with one of the richest and yet least known periods of philosophical life in Persia, the centuries between the seventh/thirteenth century that saw the eclipse of the school of Khorasan and the tenth/sixteenth century that coincided with the rise of the Safavids.The main schools dealt with in this volume are the Peripatetic (mashshai) School, the School of Illumination (ishraq) of Suhrawardi, and various forms of philosophical Sufism, especially the school of Ibn Arabi, which had its origins in the works of Ghazzali and Ayn al-Qudat Hamadani.This period was also notable for the philosopher-scientists such as Nasir al-Din Tusi and Qutb al-Din Shirazi.

Socrates famously said that the unexamined life is not worth living. In keeping with this dictum, taking ethics seriously means engaging with the real world where the human sense of right and wrong is daily tested. At their best, all faith traditions are challenged by such testing; and if faithinspired ethics are thought to govern the whole of life, their guiding values need constantly to be interpreted by the believer to achieve a practical result. In the Muslim tradition, this is what the Quran really amounts to: a call to strive for belief with a social conscience. For fourteen centuries Muslim scholars have grappled with the implications of that call in matters of law, social practice and theology. A Companion to Muslim Ethics explores Islams core conception of the good, shared with other great traditions.

The Quran is the sacramental foundation of prayer in Islam. Its inspirational power is perpetually renewed through being recited and meditated upon by Muslims on a daily basis throughout their lives.This succinct and readable study offers unique contemporary insights into the spiritual, intellectual and moral interplay set in motion by the short Quranic chapters that are recited in their prayers by Muslims of all traditions, but which are particularly recommended within Shii Islam. Reza Shah-Kazemi engages closely and creatively with the Quranic chapters, basing his philosophical reflections on traditional exegetical principles, and focusing in particular on the relationship between the moral and the mystical aspects of the texts. The result is a stimulating meditation that probes the depths of meaning contained within the verses of a revelation by which the spiritual life of Muslims has for many centuries been nourished and fulfilled.

One of the most prominent Muslim scholars and scientists of the medieval era, the Persian polymath Nasir al-Din Tusi (12011274) joined the Shia Nizari Ismaili community at a young age, as the armies of Genghis Khan poured across his homeland. In the course of a long and eminent career, first under the patronage of the Ismailis at the fortress of Alamut, and later with the conquering Mongols, he produced over 150 works on diverse subjects from theology and philosophy to mathematics and astronomy. In this volume, he offers new critical editions and translations of three shorter Ismaili works by Tusi, namely Aghaz wa anjam (The Beginning and the End), Tawalla wa tabarra (Solidarity and Dissociation), and Matlub al-muminin (Desideratum of the Faithful).

Dedicated to the achievements of Farhad Daftary, the foremost authority on Ismaili studies of our time, this volume brings together a number of studies on intellectual and political history, particularly in the three main areas where the significance of Daftarys scholarship has had the largest impact: Ismaili studies as well as Persian studies and Shii studies in a wider context. It focuses, but not exclusively, on the intellectual production of the Ismailis and their role in history, from some of the earliest Ismaili texts to thinkers from the Fatimid and the Alamut periods as well as relations of the Fatimids with other dynasties. Containing essays from some of the most respected scholars in Ismaili, Shii and Persian studies (including Patricia Crone, M.A. Amir-Moezzi, C. Edmund Bosworth and Robert Gleave), the book makes a significant contribution to wider scholarship in philosophical theology and medieval Islam.

THE ADVENT OF THE FATIMIDS


A Contemporary Shii Witness
Arabic Edition and English Translation of Ibn alHaythams Kitab al-Munazarat

For more than fourteen hundred years Muslims have held multiple and diverging views about their religious tradition.This divergence encompasses such matters as authority; ritual practice; political power; law and governance; civic life; and the form and content of individual and communal expressions of their faith. Over the centuries Muslims have frequently debated these issues amongst themselves. However, despite the remarkable diversity of the Islamic tradition, and the plurality of understandings about Islam, Muslims are regularly and erroneously portrayed as internally homogeneous and monolithic.This important book challenges such propositions by examining the ways in which matters of common concern to Muslims have been discussed by them and examined. Offering contributions by worldclass scholars, Diversity and Pluralism in Islam applies insights from a range of disciplines, including anthropology, history, literature, political theory, comparative literature and Islamic studies.

How should Jews respond to an age of militant Zionism and resurgent anti-Semitism? Is insisting on a separate sense of identity anachronistic and dangerous, or is it the only way of preserving the Jewish cultural heritage? Rabbi David Goldberg, one of todays most respected and outspoken Jewish leaders in the English-speaking world, here grapples with the dilemmas of contemporary Jewishness with characteristic candour, and sketches the emerging faultlines in the Jewish sense of identity. He offers up a completely fresh reading of Jewish history, arguing that the narrative of relentless woe and suffering, popularised by nineteenth-century writers such as George Eliot, was based on a highly selective reading of the past. With wit, insight and compassion he highlights the growing gulf between Israeli and Diaspora Jewishness and argues that Israeli and Diaspora Jews are in danger of becoming divided by a common heritage. This book will stimulate, engage and provoke readers of all beliefs and cultures.

Perhaps more than any other religion, Hinduism is associated in the modern mind with the erotic. At the same time, many Hindus see their religion rising above the world of the senses and deprecate Western enthusiasm for a perceived erotic India. In this important book, David Smith explores the true significance of Hindu eroticism. He shows that while withdrawal from the senses is a major component of Hinduism, it is precisely because the Hindu appreciation of the power of the senses is so very refined that asceticism developed in India as a counterreaction. He argues that so varied, extensive and diffused is the Hindu idea of the erotic that it is central to understanding the inner heart of Hinduism. Profound and stimulating in equal measure, and illustrated throughout by some of the greatest examples of Hindu erotic art, The Hindu Erotic will be essential reading for anyone interested in Indian religion, sexuality, and South Asian culture.

Jewish film characters have existed almost as long as the medium itself. But around 1990, films about Jews and their representation in cinema multiplied and took on new forms, marking a radical rupture with the past. Contemporary cinemas have been depicting a multiplicity of new Jews, including tough Jews, brutish Jews, gay and lesbian Jews, Jewish cowboys, skinheads and superheroes, Jews in space and so on. Grounded in the study of over 300 films, The New Jew in FIlm explores these new and changing depictions of Jews, Jewishness and Judaism, providing a wider, more representative picture of the subject than has hitherto been attempted. Its concern is to reveal how the representation of the Jew is used to convey confidence or anxieties about Jewish identity and history, as well as how it engages with questions of racial, sexual and gender politics.This is a compelling, surprising and provocative book, providing a welcome overview of important Jewish films produced globally over the last twenty years.

For European colonisers, Orientalist scholars and Christian missionaries of the Victorian era,Tantra was generally seen as the most degenerate and depraved example of the worst tendencies of the so-called Indian mind.Yet for most contemporary New Age and popular writers,Tantra is celebrated as a much-needed affirmation of physical pleasure and sex: indeed as a cult of ecstasy to counter the perceived hypocritical prudery of many Westerners. In the eyes of many Hindus, much of the Western literature on Tantra represents a form of neo-colonialism, which continues to portray India as an exotic, erotic, hyper-sexualized Orient. Which, then, is the real Tantra? In his book, Hugh B. Urban suggests that the real meaning of Tantra lies in helping us rethink not just the history of Indian religions, but also our own modern obsessions with power, sex and the invidious legacies of cultural imperialism.

Rising from Shanxi Province like a threedimensional mandala, the soaring peaks of Wutai Shan (Five-terrace Mountain) have inspired pilgrims and travellers for almost two millennia.This consecrated and secluded site is said to be the spiritual home of Wenshu Pusa, Bodhisattva of Wisdom. It is one of the most venerable and important Buddhist sanctuaries in China, yet still remains relatively little known in the West. Christoph Baumer has travelled extensively in the Wutai Shan region, and here offers the first comprehensive assessment of the cradle of Chinese Buddhism. In his remarkable new travelogue, 300 luminous photographs capture the unique spirituality of the 60 monasteries which straddle the complex. Charting festivals, rituals and the daily life of the monks, abbots and abbesses, Chinas Holy Mountain is both a splendid introduction to the history of Chinese Buddhism and an evocative and lavishly illustrated gazetteer of the monasteries and sacred artefacts themselves.

For Daisaku Ikeda, education has long been one of the fundamental priorities of his work and teaching. And his emphasis on the intellectual legacy bequeathed to humanity by the great teachers of civilization is in this volume encapsulated by the notion of a new humanism: a significant residue of wisdom that in the right circumstances may be passed on to future generations. These circumstances are perhaps most fully realised in the context of universities. And in promoting his core values of education and peace, the author has delivered speeches and lectures at more than twenty-five academies, colleges and research institutes worldwide. This stimulating collection, which includes the authors most recent lectures, ranges widely across topics as diverse as art, religion, culture and time, and draws creatively on the sages of ancient India, China and Japan as well as on visionary thinkers from every nation, including Tolstoy, Victor Hugo and Gandhi.

Few figures in the Western imagination are as haunting and mysterious as that of the shaman. Shamans have been inextricably associated with omens and rune-telling, healing, trance-like possession, and psychosomatic magic.Yet as this provocative and original book shows, there is no such thing as shamanism in the sense that most Westerners have understood or currently understand it. The term itself was invented, romanticised and developed by explorers, anthropologists, botanists and others for the chief purpose of retrieving a noble spirituality they felt they had lost. Charlotte E. Hardman offers a comprehensive history of the ways in which shamanism has inspired Westerners from the 17th century to the present. She shows how, in the pick-and-mix modern era (when so-called neo-shamanic ideas have coloured popular culture via rave, Five Rhythms dance, and New Age religion), it seems that everyone can now be a shaman.

Vampires and werewolves; phantoms and phantasms: intrigued by some of the most sinister, yet at the same time most compelling legends of Western civilization, Gregory L. Reece takes off into the wilds in search of answers and fresh adventures. His latest quest leads him into the haunted realm of the dead and the undead: of those carnivorous, nocturnal hunters that might perhaps better be left undisturbed.Why, he asks, is our culture obsessed by the eerie and the macabre? Why, despite its horrors, does the dark side of the supernatural call to us with such dangerous allure? Whether tracking night-stalking werewolves, chanting black magic mantras with Satanists, or interviewing a funereal modern-day Count Dracula, Reece is determined to uncover the truth. A wry exploration of a secret and secretive subculture, Creatures of the Night is at the same time a bold and startling journey into a wraithlike world that has so often seemed to lie beyond the limits of rational comprehension until now.

Supernatural, shape-shifting figures have been given many names over the ages genie, demon, spirit, ghoul, shaitan and jinn.Those who have seen them believe jinn shadow us in our daily lives, causing endless mischief, providing amazing services and sometimes inducing sheer terror. Legends of the Fire Spirits explores the enduring phenomenon of the jinn. From North Africa to Central Asia, from the Mediterranean to sub-Saharan Africa and beyond, this riveting book draws on long-forgotten ancient testimonies, medieval histories, colonial records, anthropologists reports and travellers tales to explore the different types of jinn, their behaviour, society, culture and long history of contact with humankind. It documents their links with famous figures in history and illustrates the varied and vivid portrayals of jinn in world literature. In essence, Legends of the Fire Spirits is a magnificent and indispensable portrayal of the rich folklore of the Islamic world.

Charismatic visions and the role of mediums; possession ceremonies and ecstatic trance; the social contexts and practices of invocation: these are a number of the intriguing topics addressed by this comprehensive undergraduate textbook, the first of its kind to offer a thorough overview of the fascinating and multifaceted subject of spirit possession.The subject is now widely studied in a number of fields, and for some time there has been a need for a book which offers a multicultural, multi-thematic treatment which can satisfy growing demand and form the basis of focused modules in the area. Summoning the Spirits meets that requirement. Avoiding technical jargon and abstruse theorising, and with an international team of contributors presenting a variety of novel and challenging approaches, the book offers a representative snapshot of the way the topic is being treated by academics across the world.
