A ghost upon your path by John McCarthy( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
We all have a need to belong, to have a place and a people we fell tied to: our family, our house, our hometown, our nation. Ever since he first visited Ireland with his family twenty years ago, John McCarthy has felt a strong affinity with its people and landscape. Yet in spite of his Irish name, he never thought of himself as remotely Irish. When McCarthy sets up home in wild isolated corner of County Kerry where his ancestors were living a thousand years before, he little realises that he is about to undertake not only a journey into that small rural community but also into his own history and his family. -- back cover
Iran by Claire Childéric( visu )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 84 libraries worldwide
"In the Islamic Republic of Iran, battle lines are drawn between conservative clerics claiming a God-given right to rule and reformers challenging their authority. This provocative program seeks to understand what happens when a modern state is recreated based on fundamentalist Islamic principles, and whether its society should be open and democratic or oppressed and authoritarian. From Iran's chaotic capital Tehran to its holy city of Qom, Iranians share their thoughts on life before the rise of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, the brutal eight-year war with Iraq, and the struggle Islamic reformers face against hard-line Muslims to establish a progressive government in place of a Republic they believe has lost its way"--Container
India by Ralf Demesmaeker( visu )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 84 libraries worldwide
"Captures the increasingly political nature of Hinduism and its volatile relationship with Islam--India's leading minority religion. It argues that this volatility results from their past history, when large parts of India were dominated by the Muslim rulers, the Mughals. Today, many Hindus demand greater recognition of Hinduism in governmental affairs and oppose what they feel is the favoring of Muslims and other minorities"--Container
U.S.A by André IJsendoorn( visu )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
"Addresses accusations of the Christian right's distorting influence on America's place in the world. President George W. Bush has actively promoted the idea of faith-based initiatives--government's assistance in combating welfare and social deprivation--prompting charges of First Amendment violations from Democrats and liberals. But President Bush has had to force these initiatives through a highly resistant Congress. So is talk of the heavy power of the Christian right on American government based on liberal paranoia, as many conservatives attest? Archival congressional footage, with considerable attention paid to 9/11, chronicles the long-standing debate."--Container
Russia ( visu )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
"It is no irony that Victor Zorkaltsev, a Communist, is also the head of the religious committee of the Russian parliament, the Duma. It is also not an accident that the Russian government paid for an extraordinary replica of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior that is maintained by local businessmen. And if more than 80 percent of Russians describe themselves as Orthodox Christians, why do only 5 percent go to church regularly? These are three of many examples in this potent program that concentrates on the resurgence of the Russian Orthodox Church and how its aspirations to spiritual and political power pose a threat to the fundamental freedoms of many Russians"--Container

This video consists of three films, in which John McCarthy visits many of the greatest and most significant religious buildings of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The architecture and art of each building is brought alive through the eyes of a guide who knows it intimately. Rabbis, priests and imams, congregation members and art historians explain the history of these sacred places and, in many cases, their importance today as places of lived faith

"In this colossal six-part series, former Beirut hostage John McCarthy embarks on a 30,000-mile journey spanning six very different countries to explore the volatile relationship between religion and politics in Israel, Iran, Russia, India, Brazil, and the U.S. Different religious and political forces are at work in each of these countries and the engagement between the two makes for fascinating stories-and headline news"--Container
Brazil ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"This controversial program highlights the political initiatives taken by Brazil's top two religious entities: Catholics and evangelical Protestants. It argues that the Roman Catholic Church has always been fused with the nation's identity, from statues of Christ in Rio de Janiero to mark the first centenary of Brazil's independence to the thousands of Brazilian flags waved during the morning mass at the Cathedral of Aparecida. Yet the Church has seemed aloof to many Brazilians; fewer than one in ten attend Mass regularly. With the growing power of the evangelical movement, a battle against the Catholic establishment begins for political collusion at the time of a crucial presidential election"--Container
