摘要:

Ellen G. White (1827-1915) ranks with Joseph Smith and Mary Baker Eddy among the most influential religious figures in nineteenth-century America. From childhood filled with physical and psychological trauma, by the 1860s White had emerged largely by virtue of her trancelike visions, as the leader of a band of millennialists called Seventh-day Adventists. Her visions, for which she claimed divine inspirations, successfully guided the fledging church through its first critical decades and are even today considered authoritative by her more than five million followers around the world. Drawing from letters, testimonies, and manuscripts of White and her associates, in Prophetess of Health, Ronald L. Numbers focuses on White's career as a health reformer, detailing her interest in vegetarianism, hydropathy (the curing of disease by water), and the building of sanitariums, as well as her theories on phrenology, dress, sex, and diet. Numbers uncovers works written prior to Ellen White's visions that were often embarrassingly similar to White's own accounts, which she insisted came directly from God. Although Number's attitude toward White is always respectful, dispassionate, and even admiring, the first edition of this book created something of a furor in Seventh-day Adventist circles. The story of how the book came to written and what effect it had on the life of its author are the subjects of an introductory essay by Jonathan Butler. This revised and enlarged edition also includes a new psychological profile of Ellen G. White, coauthored Janet S. Numbers, together with a new appendix and an expanded bibliography.--Cover.
