The autobiography of St. Ignatius Loyola : with related documents by Ignatius( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saint Ignatius of Loyola was a man who saw above and beyond his century, a man of vision and calm hope, who could step comfortably into our era and the Church of our time and show us how to draw closer to Christ. Ignatius' autobiography spans eighteen very important years of this saint's 65-year life . . . from his wounding at Pamplona (1521) through his conversion, his university studies and his journey to Rome in order to place his followers and himself at the disposal of the Pope. These critical years reveal the incredible transformation and spiritual growth in the soul of a great saint and the events that helped to bring about that change in his life. This classic work merits a long life. Apart from providing a splendid translation of the saint's original text, Father Tylenda has included an informative commentary which enables the modern reader to grasp various allusions in the text --and to gain a better view of a saintly man baring his soul. --
Reconquest and crusade in medieval Spain by Joseph F O'Callaghan( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Drawing from both Christian and Islamic sources, Reconquest and Crusade in Medieval Spain attempts to redress the imbalance in part by demonstrating that the clash of arms between Christians and Muslims in the Iberian peninsula that began in the early eighth century was transformed into a crusade by the papacy during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Successive popes accorded to Christian warriors willing to participate in the peninsular wars against Islam the same crusading benefits offered to those going to the Holy Land. Joseph F. O'Callaghan clearly demonstrates that any study of the history of the crusades must take a broader view of the Mediterranean to include medieval Spain. Following a chronological overview of the crusading in the Iberian peninsula from the late eleventh to the middle of the thirteenth century, O'Callaghan proceeds to the study of warfare, military finance, and the liturgy of reconquest and crusading. He concludes his book with a consideration of the later stages of reconquest and crusade up to and including the fall of Granada in 1492, while noting that the spiritual benefits of crusading bulls were still offered to the Spanish until the Second Vatican Council of 1963. Although the conflict described in this book occurred more than eight hundred years ago, recent events remind the world that the intensity of belief, rhetoric, and action that gave birth to crusade, holy war, and jihad remains a powerful force in the twenty-first century. Joseph F. O'Callaghan is Professor Emeritus of History at Fordham University. He is the author of many books on Spanish history, including The Learned King: The Reign of Alfonso X of Castile, also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press, and A History of Medieval Spain

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Emergence of León-Castile brings together the current research of colleagues, students and friends of Joseph F. O'Callaghan, a pioneer in the study of the kingdom of León-Castile. The essays focus on the politics, law and economy of León-Castile from its first great leap forward in the eleventh century to the civil strife of the fifteenth. No other volume in English allows the reader to trace the institutional development of the kingdom over several centuries. The collection underlines the fact that León-Castile was not a backwater but a sophisticated state that had an important influence on the development of medieval and renaissance Europe"--Provided by publisher

The last crusade in the West : Castile and the conquest of Granada by Joseph F O'Callaghan( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the middle of the fourteenth century, Christian control of the Iberian Peninsula extended to the borders of the emirate of Granada, whose Muslim rulers acknowledged Castilian suzerainty. No longer threatened by Moroccan incursions, the kings of Castile were diverted from completing the Reconquest by civil war and conflicts with neighboring Christian kings. Mindful, however, of their traditional goal of recovering lands formerly ruled by the Visigoths, whose heirs they claimed to be, the Castilian monarchs continued intermittently to assault Granada until the late fifteenth century. Matters changed thereafter, when Fernando and Isabel launched a decade-long effort to subjugate Granada. Utilizing artillery and expending vast sums of money, they methodically conquered each Naṣrid stronghold until the capitulation of the city of Granada itself in 1492. Effective military and naval organization and access to a diversity of financial resources, joined with papal crusading benefits, facilitated the final conquest. Throughout, the Naṣrids had emphasized the urgency of a jihād waged against the Christian infidels, while the Castilians affirmed that the expulsion of the "enemies of our Catholic faith" was a necessary, just, and holy cause. The fundamentally religious character of this last stage of conflict cannot be doubted, Joseph F. O'Callaghan argues

Chronicle of Alfonso X by Alfonso( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfonso X died before his own life could be written. His was a reign fraught with political intrigue and double crosses, almost constant war and equally constant diplomacy, royal largesse and economic instability - all of which led to open revolt and efforts by Alfonso's own son to depose the king." "It would be another sixty-some years before King Alfonso XI would commission Fernan Sanchez de Valladolid to write Cronica de Alfonso X to memorialize his great-grandfather."--Jacket
