Description:
The rise of popular heresy and the growing skill of a large number of masters in the study of the liberal arts, together presented a challenge to accepted methods of Bible study. This book examines the growth of this challenge, and the way in which some of the most able defenders of Christian orthodoxy attempted to meet it. Their efforts resulted in the establishment of theology as an academic discipline in the new universities and helped to determine the direction of the study of theology for many centuries to come.

Description:
Thomas D. Cooke offers a refined interpretation of the humor of the Old French fabliaux, noting that the amusement found in the thirteenth-century tales depends upon the combination of a surprise ending and a very careful preparation for that surprise. In his study of the various ways the authors of the fabliaux aim for the comic climax, Cooke discovers that in the successful tales the use of characterization, settings, actions, dialogues, and authorial commentary all help build toward it.

Description:
Bernard of Clairvaux towered over the society of twelfth-century Europe. A brilliant preacher and a polished writer, he counselled kings and rebuked popes. He moved in the complicated affairs of men with a dexterity which brought him acclaim and adversaries, yet he exhorted Christians to turn from worldly affairs to serve God. A profound mystic, Bernard sought, above all and in all, to be with God and to bring all men to the experience of God. His SERMONS ON THE SONG OF SONGS are among the most famous and most beautiful examples of medieval scriptural exegesis. In them the modern reader can catch a glimpse of the genius which an entire generation found irresistible.

Description:
This is an original and creative interpretation of the relations between psychology and mythology by a distinguished Jungian analyst. According to Dr. Neumann's thesis, individual consciousness passes through the same archetypal stages of development that marked the history of human consciousness as a whole. The stages begin and end with the symbol of the Uroboros, or tail-eating serpent; the intermediary stages are projected in the universal myths of the World Creation, the Great Mother, the Separation of the World Parents, the Birth of the Hero, the Slaying of the Dragon, the Rescue of the Captive, and the Transformation and Deification of the Hero. The Hero, throughout this sequence, is the evolving ego consciousness.

Description:
Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 B.C - A.D. 17), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Amatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us, and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in his exile. His main surviving works are the Metamorphoses, a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the Fasti, a poetical treatment of the Roma year of which Ovid finished only half; the Amores, love poems, the Ars Amatoria, not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; Heroides, fictitious love-letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile - the Tristia, appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar Epistulae… Read more

Description:
The aim of this book, as designed by the publishers, is to present, in convenient form, information which the ordinary reader, not only of the literatures of Greece and Rome, but also of that large proportion of modern European literature which teems with classical allusions, may find useful. It endeavours to do two things: in the first place to bring together what he may wish to know about the evolution of classical literature, the principal authors, and their chief works; in the second place, to depict so much of the historical, political, social, and religious background as may help to make the classics understood.
