Women, Enlightenment And Catholicism

RRP $439.99

Women, Enlightenment and Catholicism explores, for the first time, how Catholic women in Europe used Enlightenment thought and culture in their living contexts to articulate their beliefs about how to live their faith in the world. The chapters address their new understanding of womanhood, conceived independently from marital relationships, distinctive contributions to political and religious philosophy, spirituality, and mysticism, and the womens' efforts to bring scientific knowledge to the attention of other women. This book uses biographical studies of nineteen women to guide students through the complex religious, intellectual, and global connections the Enlightenment influenced.


Gerard Manley Hopkins And Victorian Catholicism

RRP $287.99

Although largely unknown in his lifetime, Gerard Manley Hopkins was, Jill Muller contends, the 'heart in hiding' of Victorian Catholicism. Investigations of Hopkins's spirituality have too often detached his beliefs from their local habitation in a newly industrialized, historically anti-Catholic and increasingly secular England. This book restores the poet to his full intellectual and literary context by exploring his responses to the writings of his Catholic contemporaries, and by situating the preoccupations, dramas and disappointments of his life in the wider setting of Victorian Catholic culture.
Drawing on historical and cultural studies of Victorian Catholicism, along with Hopkins's writings, Muller shows how the melancholy trajectory of the Jesuit poet's career mimics the deflation of Catholic hopes during the second half of Victoria's reign, as well as the turn within the Roman Church of England from a triumphalist rhetoric of conversion to a more introverted and insular spirituality.


Catholicism In A Protestant Kingdom

RRP $228.49

Escaping from narrative history, this book takes a deep look at the Catholic question in eighteenth-century Ireland. It asks how people thought about Catholicism, Protestantism and their society, in order to reassess the content and importance of the religious conflict. In doing this, Dr Cadoc Leighton provides a study of very wide appeal, which offers new and thought-provoking ways of looking not only at the eighteenth century but at modern Irish history in general. It also places Ireland clearly within the mainstream of European historical developments.
