Mary Magdalene : the hidden apostle ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
The first person to whom Jesus appeared after his resurrection has been the victim of misrepresentation. Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. Rather, she, was a woman of wealth whose financial support was crucial to the early survival of Christianity. The special relationship she had with Christ led to resentment among the other disciples, and her reputation was tarnished as a result. Drawing on ancient texts, rare art and research, this far-reaching portrait compares the evidence we have with the stories we have heard. She was a disciple who believed in the word of the Lord long before many others

The fading smile : poets in Boston, 1955-1960 from Robert Frost to Robert Lowell to Sylvia Plath by Peter Davison( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
An intimately perceptive account, by a poet who knew them all, of the brilliant circle of poets who lived and worked in Boston through the half-decade beginning in 1955. That was the year Peter Davison, coming to Boston as a book editor, was swept up in a world - in a tumult - of poetry. He rediscovered his father's old friend Robert Frost. He briefly squired Sylvia Plath. He came to know Robert Lowell (whose poems and private disasters dominated the period) and Adrienne Rich, Stanley Kunitz, Richard Wilbur, Anne Sexton, W.S. Merwin, and others who, closely bound together in friendship or rivalry or both, defined the shape of American poetry at mid-century. Through their eyes as well as his own, and often in their words, Davison presents a sharply fresh vision of the shift from confidence to a troubled questioning that overtook America - a transformation that was, in a sense, foreshadowed in the sensibilities, in the writings, sometimes in the lives, of some of our finest poets
