John Owen's Interpretation of Hebrews 6:4-6: Eternal Perseverance of the Saints in Puritan Exegesis

$10.00
SKU: 1524166445364

Modern studies of the development of Reformed doctrine of the saints' eternal per severance frequently ignore the exegetical debate from which it arose. The exegesis of Heb. 6:4?6 provides the background for examining the interpretive strategy and methodology of the Reformed exegete John Owen. Owen rejects the interpretation of the English Arminian John Goodwin because of Goodwin's failure to appreciate the author's intent, his neglect of the wider context, and his faulty reasoning. Owen's own exegesis demonstrates his commitment to, and mastery of, the interpretive techniques of his time.

The Supreme Court of the Holy Roman Empire: The State of Research and the Outlook

$10.00
SKU: 1524163932214

The Supreme Court {Reichskammergericht} of the Holy Roman Empire, which existed from 1495 to 1806, was besides the Aulic Court (Reichshofrat) in Vienna the highest judicial instance in the so-called Old Empire. For a long time it has been lamented that the Supreme Court's acts, preserved at Wetzlar, the court's final seat, had been distributed among several archives of the German states in the nineteenth century.

Women, Honor, and Violence in a Castilian Town, 1600–1650

$10.00
SKU: 1523993642483

Honor in early modern Castile has been seen as a code that determined social behavior, notably by defining women’s identities in terms of sexuality and by limiting their behavior. Examining criminal cases that feature nonelite women from Yébenes, a small town near Toledo in Castile, shows that in practice honor was a rhetoric that women used to make their way through the social relations of their communities as they asserted themselves and protected their interests.

Providence, Fortune, and the Experience of Combat: English Printed Battlefield Reports, circa 1570–1637

$10.00
SKU: 1523993229808

Printed English-language battlefield news reports between 1570 and 1637 conveyed to English newsreaders a genre-distinctive discourse of war, whose emphasis on the precise means of battlefield providence conveyed a degree of experimental providentialism considerably beyond the norms of England’s consensually providential culture. This article examines closely the relationship of the news genre to its usage of providence and fortune, and shows how and why providence emerged as its favored explanatory concept.

Gospelling Sisters “goinge up and downe”: John Foxe and Disorderly Women

$10.00
SKU: 1523993002803

John Foxe’s Actes and Monuments is a formative text of English Protestantism, the martyrs described within it generally thought to have been intended to serve as prototype English Protestants. However, Foxe’s female martyrs, by defying their husbands, frequently subvert expectations for female virtue, which did not go unnoticed by Catholic polemicists. While failing explicitly to defend his female martyrs’ virtue, Foxe did not intend to advocate female disorder.

Justice in the Age of Lordship: A Feudal Court in Tuscany during the Medici Era (1619–66)

$10.00
SKU: 1523992610094

Expectations of justice in a Tuscan fief were not much different from those of today, because they were deeply rooted in universal emotions governing exchange and reciprocity. Where villagers had easy access to a magistrate (both civil and criminal), they availed themselves of the tribunal whose mechanisms they understood and accepted. The relative efficiency of the feudal tribunal encouraged villagers to go back to it, at least to settle those grievances that elicited in them the most outrage.
