Beschreibung:

This anthology of essays on the theme of Faith is a tribute to the spirit that lives in humanity. As the editor writes in her introduction, "Believer, non-believer or iconoclast, no one living in this kaliyuga can be indifferent to this issue." This anthology is an offering that comes with a plea that it be read slowly, a little at a time, for it is not `ten easy steps to a better millennium.` In fact it has no agenda whatever on the faith question, except to clear a space wide enough for various shades of insights which might be received and reflected upon. The volume has no pretensions of representing any cross-section of opinion nor even that of working towards a coherent set of answers. It came into being through the unique authenticity and generosity of each of the contributors Printed Pages: 228. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 49216

Verlagsfrisch New copy Disputatio DISPUT 17 Doubt in an Age of Faith Uncertainty in the Long Twelfth Century S. Flanagan XIV+216 p., 156 x 234 mm, 2009 ISBN: 978-2-503-52748-2 Languages: English, Latin Hardback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 60,00 How to order? Doubt in an Age of Faith presents the first systematic scholarly treatment of doubt and its cultural role in Latin Christendom during the long twelfth century (c. 1060-1220). Flanagan rejects the popular image of the credulous Middle Ages, showing the centrality of doubt to intellectual and religious discourses of the period. However this wide-ranging investigation is not confined to matters of faith or religious scepticism. Examining doubt as both a psychological and social phenomenon, Flanagan explores how medieval people experienced uncertainty, and the different ways in which they sought to resolve it. Both positive and negative aspects of doubt are discussed. Her proposal that the rejection of doubt as a tool of intellectual inquiry, coupled with the quest for ever-greater certainty contributed to the closing of minds that marked the thirteenth century, has obvious implications for our own times. "The topic of the book is also its greatest strength, as few eras lend themselves so well to an analysis of doubt as this one. Flanagan offers fresh insights in the discovery of the self (.). . Flanagan's steady focus on doubt has much to offer, not the least of which is to nuance once again any one-dimensional idea of the twelfth century as one of intellectual progress alone." (W. Otten, in: American Historical Review, October 2010, p. 1205-1206). Buch. Artikel-Nr. 2821
