The dangers of ritual : between early medieval texts and social scientific theory by Philippe Buc( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Medieval historians will find this book an indispensable resource for its insights into methodological issues crucial to their discipline. As Buc demonstrates, only rigorous attention to the contexts within which authors worked can allow us to reconstruct from medieval documents how "rituals" might have functioned. Ultimately, he argues, too swift an application of contemporary models to highly complex textual artifacts blinds us to the specificities of early medieval European political culture."--Jacket

Jews and Christians in Medieval Europe : the historiographical legacy of Bernhard Blumenkranz by P Buc( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The name of Bernhard Blumenkranz is well known to all those who study the history of European Jews in the Middle Ages and in particular the history of Jewish-Christian relations. Blumenkranz was born in Vienna in 1913; he left for Switzerland during the war and obtained a doctorate at the University of Basel on the portrayal of Jews in the works of Augustine. He subsequently moved to France where his numerous publications revived and renovated the field of Jewish studies. The international group of scholars who wrote the fifteen essays in this volume, beyond paying homage to Blumenkranz’s work, trace the trajectories of various lines of inquiry that he initiated: Christian theology of Judaism, problems of conversion and proselytism, geography and topography of Medieval Jewish communities, the representation of Jews in Christian art

THIS DISSERTATION TRACES THE TRENDS IN CLERICAL POLITICAL OPINION IN NORTHERN FRANCE BETWEEN 1100 AND 1330 THROUGH THE STUDY OF A FUNDAMENTAL SOURCE, BIBLICAL EXEGESIS. SCRIPTURAL INTERPRETATION BEING THE BASIS OF EDUCATION IN THE MEDIEVAL SCHOOLS AND AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PARIS, IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND IT IN ORDER TO KNOW THE CONTEMPORARY MEANING OF WORDS. THE INTRODUCTION ANALYSES ITS METHODS AND LOGIC. THE FIRST PART TRACES TWO CONTROVERSIES: WHETHER THERE WAS SOME FORM OF POLITICAL POWER BEFORE THE FALL, AND WHETHER THERE WILL BE AT THE END OF TIMES. THE SECOND PART DEALS WITH THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN KING AND KNOWLEDGE ON THE ONE HAND, CLERICS AND SYMBOLIC VIOLENCE ON THE OTHER. THE THIRD PART CONCENTRATES ON THE CONSTITUTIONAL POSITIONS OF KING AND PEOPLE: TAXATION, THE SINFUL HISTORICAL ORIGINS OF THE MONARCHY, ROYAL ACCESSIONS, AND THE RIGHTS OF REPROACH AND RESISTANCE THAT ANTI-HIERARCHICAL COMMENTATORS ATTRIBUTE TO THE PEOPLE. DURING A FIRST PHASE (1100-1215), THE EQUALITARIAN TENDENCY HAS THE UPPER HAND. AROUND 1250, HIERARCHICAL READINGS BECOME DOMINANT. THEY WILL CULMINATE WITH NICHOLAS OF LYRA. THE CONSTANT COEXISTENCE OF THE RIVAL TRADITIONS WILL NEVERTHELESS FAULT THE HISTORIAN WHO WOULD POSTULATE THE UNITY OF CLERICAL IDEOLOGY
Dissecting the holy body between medicine and religion in early modern Europe by Bradford Albert Bouley( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation explains how the body provided proof of holiness in early modern Catholicism. Tradition had long asserted that the bodies of especially saintly or sinful individuals should reveal signs of their elect status. In the early modern period, Church officials sought to make such vague ideas exact: they required medical proof of bodily holiness. This requirement arose out of developments in both medicine and Catholicism. After the Reformation, many Christians doubted how or even if they should venerate the saints. In response, the Catholic Church centralized and formalized canonization procedures. As part of this reform, canonization officials began to require that medical practitioners examine the cadavers of holy individuals. Medical and anatomical knowledge had progressed during this period to the point where dissection was thought to yield unique information about the lifestyle and habits of the deceased. This information could also include signs of a person's spiritual state. The body, interpreted through expert eyes, could now reveal a person's true nature. Together, medical practitioners and canon lawyers in the city of Rome created standards through which to interpret bodily signs of holiness. The methods of proof employed in these examinations presaged many techniques of knowledge production that would become a part of experimental practice in the early modern world. This dissertation therefore demonstrates that instead of being opposed, science and religion worked together to define the boundaries of the natural in human bodies
