In Saints and Society, Donald Weinstein and Rudolph M. Bell examine the lives of 864 saints who lived between 1000 and 1700 and the perceptions of sanctity prevalent in late medieval and early modern Europe. They also provide a substantial body of information on the people among whom the saints lived and by whom they came to be venerated. In the first part, the authors give close consideration to what the saints' lives reveal about childhood, adolescence, and adulthood; the impact of religious inspiration upon family bonds; and family influences upon religious behavior. The second part provides a composite picture of piety and its changing configuration in Latin Christendom. With the assistance of statistical analysis, the authors answer questions involving the popular perception of holiness, social class, and gender

Savonarola : the rise and fall of a Renaissance prophet by Donald Weinstein( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Girolamo Savonarola, the fifteenth-century doom-saying friar, embraced the revolution of the Florentine republic and prophesied that it would become the center of a New Age of Christian renewal and world domination.

The two Reformations : the journey from the last days to the new world by Heiko Augustinus Oberman( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this last collection of his vital, controversial, and accessible writings, Heiko A. Oberman seeks to liberate and broaden our understanding of the European Reformation, from its origins in medieval philosophy and theology through the Puritan settlers who brought Calvin's vision to the New World. Ranging over many topics, Oberman finds fascinating connections between aspects of the Reformation and twentieth century history and thought - most notably the connection to Nazism and the Holocaust. He revisits his earlier work on the history of anti-Semitism, rejects the notion of an unbroken line from Luther to Hitler to the Holocaust, and offers a new perspective on the Christian legacy of anti-Semitism and its murderous result in the twentieth century." "Oberman demonstrates how the simplifications and rigidities of modern historiography have obscured the existential spirits of such great figures as Luther and Calvin. He explores the debt of both Luther and Calvin to medieval religious thought and the impact of diverse features of "the long fifteenth century"--Including the Black Death, nominalism, humanism, and the Conciliar Movement - on the Reformation. Drawing on a long and illustrious career of research, close study of primary sources, and deep reflection, Oberman shows how the study of the traditions and thinking of the Reformation illuminates not only a part of history but also the modern world and our assumptions about it."--Jacket

Dopo più di mezzo millennio, la figura di Savonarola (1452-1498) non smette di suscitare curiosità e diffuso interesse. Frate domenicano, predicatore incendiario e apocalittico contro la corruzione del mondo e della Chiesa, arbitro della repubblica fiorentina seguita alla cacciata dei Medici nel 1494, politico accorto e moralista invasato, giustiziato come eretico, oggi egli è oggetto di un processo di beatificazione. Il volume racconta la vita e la carriera di questo controverso e carismatico profeta: formazione, peregrinazioni, azioni e idee, cercando infine di rispondere all'interrogativo posto dall'inattesa sconfessione che, sotto tortura, Savonarola dette delle sue profezie

Observation of Structural Anisotropy and the Onset of Liquid-like Motion during the Non-thermal Melting of InSb( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The melting dynamics of laser excited InSb have been studied with femtosecond x-ray diffraction. These measurements observe the delayed onset of diffusive atomic motion, signaling the appearance of liquid-like dynamics. They also demonstrate that the root mean-squared displacement in the [111] direction increases faster than in the [110] direction after the first 500 fs. This structural anisotropy indicates that the initially generated fluid differs significantly from the equilibrium liquid
