Gille of Limerick (c. 1070-1145) : architect of a medieval church by John Fleming( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Generally, little is known about Gille, bishop of Limerick from 1106 until 1138. The Annalists have tended to ignore him and history has not focused attention on him either. Scholars accept that he was an important figure in the reformation of the Irish Church during the twelfth century but to date they have not explored his contribution to the early medieval Church in Ireland." "This work is a first attempt to focus attention on Gille. It tries to establish the foundation on which a genuine appreciation of the contribution which he made to the Ireland of the twelfth century can be laid. It provides the future historian with a critical edition of his writings and a translation of these into English. It also analyses, briefly, the backgound of his treatise and the contribution which he made, not only to the formation of the medieval Irish Church but also to specific areas of interest to the Church, the role of the laity, the place of women etc."--Jacket

Tom Stoppard's Arcadia by John Fleming( Book )

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

"Tom Stoppard is widely regarded as one of the leading contemporary British playwrights, a writer who has earned an intriguing mix of both critical and commercial success. "Arcadia" is considered by many critics to be Stoppard's masterpiece, a work that weds his early career love for words and ideas with his later career emphasis on storytelling and emotional engagement. With its engaging alteration between past and present "Arcadia" offers a comedic and entertaining exploration of chaos theory, entropy, the Second Law of thermodynamics, iterated algorithms, fractals, and other concepts culled the realms of math and science. This guide provides a comprehensive critical introduction to the play, giving students a much-needed overview of the play's background and context including Stoppard's source material as well as full discussion of the text and its performance history to date."--Publisher description
A commentary on the so-called Opus historicum of Hilary and Poitiers by John Fleming( )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The thesis consists of a commentary on the so-called "Opus historicum" of Hilary of Poitiers, together with relevant introductory sections, appendices end conclusion. This work of Hilary has been recovered only within comparatively recent times, and, in its present mutilated form, contains 17 documents covering the period from the synod of Sardica to the death of the bishop of Poitiers. It represents the first attempt by a Western historian to combat the Arian heresy not only by the broken word but also by written testimony and authentic documents of the period. The thesis opens with an Introduction dealing with the historical background and authenticity of the work, the motives and method of its author, and its editors. This is followed by a section on Hilary and the Arian Controversy where short sketches are given of the early history of the Church in Gaul, the life of Hilary, and the course of Arianism to c.367. Then comes the actual Commentary in which every document is treated as a separate unit and provided in most cases with an introduction and conclusion. Two appendices have been attached, one on the so-called Ad Coast. I, which is now recognised to be a constituent part of B II, and the other on the warmly debated Liberius letters. Finally, there is the Conclusion which contains the various theories pro pounded on the original form of the collection and in which a verdict is passed on Hilary as a historian. So far as is known, this the first commentary on the work in English and it is presented in the hope that it may dispel much of the uncertainty, which surrounds the work, by assembling from many sources the material necessary to its understanding and use and by resolving many difficult problems of detail; and so may gain for it proper acknowledgment as the primary source for the history of Arianism in the West
