American Madonna Excerpt :

Deirdre Cornell, newly pregnant, her husband Kenny and their three small children, arrived in Oaxaca with few material goods but plenty of faith. The Virgin Mary was always important to Deidre and when she crossed the border she gained astonishing new insights into a Mother whose purpose in life is to cross the boundaries between heaven and earth. Deirdre writes beautifully about Mexican narratives of Mary, such as Our Lady of Guadalupe whose image has travelled thousands of miles to the farms of upstate New York, the orchards of rural Georgia, and the meat-packing plants of Minnesota, carried by migrants and immigrants who find in her an intimate witness to their daily struggles. Deirdre shares inspiring stories of courageous men and women whose love of family and devotion to Mary encourages her to be the best wife and mother she can be. And always before her, in new and wondrous ways, is the woman who is a citizen of no land and the Mother of migrants everywhere, nurturing, loving, and remembering them.

Light In All Darkness Excerpt :

Curator's Statement Light in All Darkness: Images and Icons by William Hart McNichols is an exhibition brimming with inspiring icons, figures and people from diverse backgrounds. You will see icons of Kateri Tekakwitha "The Lily of the Mohawks," St. Rose of Lima, Patroness of the Americas, and even Princess Diana. The real "light in all darkness" of this exhibition is Father Bill himself. It has been an honor to work with him on the exhibition and catalog, sometimes daily, making a careful selection of the images and icons you will see in this exhibit. We were very thoughtful in selecting the images to bring hope and light to those in a time of darkness. The timeliness of this exhibit has made it even more impactful.

Domestic Devotions in Medieval and Early Modern Europe Excerpt :

Domestic devotion has become an increasingly important area of research in recent years, with the publication of a number of significant studies on the early modern period in particular. This Special Issue aims to build on these works and to expand their range, both geographically and chronologically. This collection focuses on lived religion and the devotional practices found in the domestic settings of late medieval and early modern Europe. More particularly, it investigates the degree to which the experience of personal or familial religious practice in the domestic realm intersected with the more public expression of faith in liturgical or communal settings. Its broad geographical range (spanning northern, southern, central and eastern Europe) includes practices related to Christianity, Judaism and Islam. This Special Issue will be of interest to historians, art historians, medievalists, early modernists, historians of religion, anthropologists and theologians, as well as those interested in the history of material religious culture. It also offers important insights into research areas such as gender studies, histories of the emotions and histories of the senses.

The Improvisatore Excerpt :

A semi-autobiographical novel inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s travels in Italy—and one of the author’s best-known works in his native Denmark Published to great acclaim in 1835, Hans Christian Andersen’s debut novel, The Improvisatore, initially eclipsed his fairy tales, which first appeared in the same year. Andersen, the captivating teller of enchanted tales, is very much in evidence in this classic Bildungsroman inspired by his travels in Italy earlier in the decade. The novel’s hero, Antonio—much like Andersen himself—rises from impoverished beginnings to become a successful artist, at every turn learning charming and often alarming lessons in the ways of the world. Adopted by a nobleman, smitten with an opera singer, challenged to a duel, captured by bandits, beset by a temptress, Antonio follows a dizzying itinerary on his path to enlightenment and, perhaps, happiness. Along the way he experiences the delights of Italian culture and nature so clearly and deeply absorbed by his peripatetic author—from the inescapable power of some of the world’s most enduring paintings and sculptures to the drama of an erupting Mount Vesuvius and the rampages of wild buffalo on the Roman campagna, all in the shadow of classical mythology and in the company of characters from every level of Italian society: beggar, brigand, priest, and poet. This first English translation since the 1840s captures the brilliance and brio, the sweep and the nuance that made The Improvisatore one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most widely read and best loved works.

Mother of God Excerpt :

A sweeping, ambitious study of the Virgin Mary’s emergence and role throughout Western historyHow did the Virgin Mary, about whom very little is said in the Gospels, become one of the most powerful and complex religious figures in the world? To arrive at the answers to this far-reaching question, one of our foremost medieval historians, Miri Rubin, investigates the ideas, practices, and images that have developed around the figure of Mary from the earliest decades of Christianity to around the year 1600. Drawing on an extraordinarily wide range of sources—including music, poetry, theology, art, scripture, and miracle tales—Rubin reveals how Mary became so embedded in our culture that it is impossible to conceive of Western history without her.In her rise to global prominence, Mary was continually remade and reimagined by wave after wave of devotees. Rubin shows how early Christians endowed Mary with a fine ancestry; why in early medieval Europe her roles as mother, bride, and companion came to the fore; and how the focus later shifted to her humanity and unparalleled purity. She also explores how indigenous people in Central America, Africa, and Asia remade Mary and so fit her into their own cultures.Beautifully written and finely illustrated, this book is a triumph of sympathy and intelligence. It demonstrates Mary’s endless capacity to inspire and her profound presence in Christian cultures and beyond.

God the Mother spoke to Isis Excerpt :

Men, by their nature, believe that the physical body is the fundamental thing for the individual. They have in fact been educated to take care of the ephemeral, of death. Only initiation into the secrets of the World Mother can deliver them from this hypnosis and show them the power of the magical aspect and the sacred mysteries of life. Then they will be able to free themselves from the spirit of calculation and material possession to live in the present and spontaneity. Everyone must awaken their own life and source, and this book will help the reader to do so. The Mother shows us the process of inner transformation in which we must engage. We must begin by renewing the dialogue with ourselves, with nature, with the Gods. The Mother asks us to learn to live with our superior being, to let the river of time flow and to put the right seed into the earth so that it may come up as an offering to God.
