Armstrong, Karen
De grote transformatie. Het begin van onze religieuze trandities
In De grote transformatie beschrijft Karen Armstrong de cruciale periode in de geschiedenis waarin de vier grote wereldgodsdiensten zijn ontstaan. De grote transformatie is een wervelende ontdekkingsreis naar de vroege ervaringen van de mensheid, hun verlangens, zelf opgelegde plichten en inspirerende oplossingen. Geschreven in de kenmerkende Armstrong-stijl, erudiet en uiterst toegankelijk, is dit boek een fascinerende analyse van de religieuze en filosofische wortels van de menselijke beschaving.

Armstrong, Karen
Een geschiedenis van God. Vierduizend jaar jodendom, christendom en islam
De idee van een goddelijk wezen bestaat al vierduizend jaar. In dit boek onderzoekt Karen Armstrong de ontwikkeling van deze idee in het jodendom, het christendom en de islam. In dit belangrijke en controversiele boek beschrijft Armstrong niet een geschiedenis van God zoals hij is, maar zoals de mens in Hem gelooft.

Armstrong, Karen
Jeruzalem, een geschiedenis van de heilige stad
Van alle steden op de wereld heeft Jeruzalem waarschijnlijk de boeiendste en meest bewogen geschiedenis. In dit fascinerende boek beschrijft Karen Armstrong de geschiedenis van deze stad van het vroegste begin tot aan de huidige tijd. Jeruzalem was de Heilige Stad voor drie godsdiensten - Armstrongs verhaal is dan ook eigenlijk het verhaal van drie steden. Zij beschrijft het leven in de stad, de belangrijkste historische figuren, de kunst, de architectuur, de geografie, de bouw van de heilige plaatsen en de verwoede pogingen van de drie grote godsdiensten om zich de Heilige Stad toe te eigenen.

Boyce, M.
Zoroastrians. Their religious Beliefs and Practices
This book traces the continuous history of the faith from the time it was preached by Zoroaster down to the present day - a span of about 3,500 years. First taught among nomads on the Asian steppes, Zoroastrianism became the state religion of the three great Iranian empires and had a remarkable influence on other world faiths: to the east on northern Buddhism, to the west on Judaism, Christianity and Islam. With the conquest of Iran by the Muslim Arabs, Zoroastrianism lost its secular power, but continued to survive as a minority faith. Despite its antiquity, it remains a living religion.

Magic. A Very Short Introduction
Defining 'magic' is a maddening task. Over the last century numerous philosophers, anthropologists, historians, and theologians have attempted to pin down its essential meaning, sometimes analysing it in such complex and abstruse depth that it all but loses its sense altogether. For this reason, many people often shy away from providing a detailed definition, assuming it is generally understood as the human control of supernatural forces. 'Magic' continues to pervade the popular imagination and idiom. People feel comfortable with its contemporary multiple meanings, unaware of the controversy, conflict, and debate its definition has caused over two and a half millennia. In common usage today 'magic' is uttered in reference to the supernatural, superstition, illusion, trickery, religious miracles, fantasies, and as a simple superlative. The literary confection known as 'magical realism' has considerable appeal and many modern scientists have ironically incorporated the word into their vocabulary, with their 'magic acid', 'magic bullets' and 'magic angles'. Since the so-called European Enlightenment magic has often been seen as a marker of primitivism, of a benighted earlier stage of human development. Yet across the modern globalized world hundreds of millions continue to resort to magic - and also to fear it. Magic provides explanations and remedies for those living in extreme poverty and without access to alternatives. In the industrial West, with its state welfare systems, religious fundamentalists decry the continued moral threat posed by magic. Under the guise of neo-Paganism, its practice has become a religion in itself. Magic continues to be a truly global issue. This Very Short Introduction does not attempt to provide a concluding definition of magic: it is beyond simple definition. Instead it explores the many ways in which magic, as an idea and a practice, has been understood and employed over the millennia.

Nayar, S. J.
The Sacred and the Cinema. Reconfiguring the 'Genuinely' Religious Film
For more than half a century now, scholars have debated over what comprises a 'genuinely' religious film - one that evinces an 'authentic' manifestation of the sacred. Often these scholars do so by pitting the 'successful' films against those which propagate an inauthentic spiritual experience - with the biblical spectacular serving as their most notorious candidate.

This book argues that what makes a filmic manifestation of the sacred true or authentic, may say more about a spectator or critic's particular way of knowing, as influenced by alphabetic literacy, than it does about the aesthetic or philosophical - and sometimes even faith-based - dimensions of the sacred onscreen. Engaging with everything from Hollywood religious spectaculars, Hindu mythologicals, and an international array of films revered for their 'transcendental style,' The Sacred and the Cinema unveils the epistemic pressures at the heart of engaging with the sacred onscreen. The book also provides a valuable summation of the history of the sacred as a field of study, particularly as that field intersects with film.

A Concise Introduction to World Religions. Second Edition
A Concise Introduction to World Religions, second edition, is a contributed volume that examines the development of major global faith traditions and movements. Based on the best-selling two-volume set World Religions: Eastern and World Religions: Western Traditions, this text explores the origins, central teachings, divisions and branches, rituals and practices, influences on culture, and responses to modern challenges for each tradition in an accessible and engaging style. Each chapter combines detailed analysis with excerpts from sacred texts, hymns, and prayers; focus boxes that draw attention to key rituals and figures; and full-colour photographs that more effectively illustrate the practices, rituals, and symbols characteristic of each faith. Other pedagogical features include a 'Tradition at a Glance' box that itemizes the fundamental characteristics and statistics for each tradition; a 'Major Branches of...' box that provides a breakdown of the divisions within each tradition; a map to situate the evolution of each faith; and a timeline that catalogues significant events. Each chapter concludes with a glossary, study questions, and further readings and recommended websites lists. B3114

The Hymns of Zoroaster. A New Translation of the Most Ancient Sacred Texts of Iran
Zoroaster was one of the greatest and most radical religious reformers in the history of the world. The faith that he founded some 2600 years ago in a remote region of central Asia flourished to become the bedrock of a great empire as well as its official religion. Zoroastrianism is still practised today in parts of India and Iran and in smaller communities elsewhere, where its adherents are known as Parsis. It has the distinction of being one of the most ancient religions in the world: only Hinduism can lay claim to greater antiquity. The foundation texts of this venerable system of belief are the founder's own passionate poems, known as the Gathas ('Songs'), and a short ritual composed soon after his death, called the "Liturgy in Seven Chapters". These hymns are the authentic utterances of a religious leader whose thought was way ahead of his time, and are among the most precious relics of human civilization. After so many millennia they continue to speak to us of an impressively austere theology and of an inspiring and easily understood moral code. Yet existing translations are few, divergent in their interpretations of the original Avestan language of Zoroaster, and frequently hard to access. M.L. West's new translation, based on the best modern scholarship, and augmented by a substantial introduction and notes, makes these powerfully resonant texts available to a wide audience in clear and accessible form.
