The Crown of Thorns




Total Pages:224



Books Description:

Interprets the works of an important group of writers known as 'the English deists'. This title argues that this interpretation reads Romantic conceptions of religious identity into a period in which it was lacking. It contextualizes these writers within the early Enlightenment, which was multivocal, plural and in search of self definition.

Apologia Pro Vita Sua

Author:John Henry Newman

Publisher:Read Books Ltd


Total Pages:507



Books Description:

This book contains John Henry Newman’s 1864 treatise, "Apologia Pro Vita Sua". It is the seminal defense of the author’s religious beliefs. It formed a rejoinder to what Newman considered as a baseless assail on himself, the Catholic church, and Roman Catholic doctrine - by Charles Kingsley (the author of "The Water Babies"). The book became a best-seller almost overnight, and is still widely read and in print today. This fascinating and seminal text is highly recommended for those with an interest in religion or Catholicism, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. John Henry Newman (1801 - 1890) was an influential figure in the religious history of nineteenth-century England. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Total Pages:356



Books Description:

A classic of political economy that traces the influence of religious thought on capitalism In one of the true classics of twentieth-century political economy, R. H. Tawney investigates the way religion has moulded social and economic practice. He tracks the influence of religious thought on capitalist economy and ideology since the Middle Ages, shedding light on the question of why Christianity continues to exert a unique role in the marketplace. The book offers an incisive analysis of the morals and mores of contemporary Western culture. In tough, muscular, richly varied prose, Tawney tells an absorbing and meaningful story. Today, the dividing line between the spheres of religion and the secular is shifting, and Religion and the Rise of Capitalism is more pertinent than ever.

This collection represents the best current research in this area. It stands alone as the only work to bring together the best current work on these topics. Its primary audience is specialised scholars of the thought of Newton and Spinoza as well as historians of the philosophical ideas of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
