The Book of Sir Thomas More and Laughter of the Heart

$10.00
SKU: 1524167616729

Sixteenth-century Protestant and Catholic martyrologists use joyfulness, wit, and gallows humor to reveal what is in a martyr's conscience, what motivates martyrs to endure suffering. Despite prominently displaying More s famous sense of humor, how ever, the Elizabethan play called The Book of Sir Thomas More maintains a steadfast silence about the reasons More suffered execution. Failing to link More s famous final jests to a declaration of his conscience, the play instead uses joyfulness to hide Mores beliefs and thus to conceal the religiously divisive reasons for his death.

"In the Christian City of Wittenberg": Karlstadt's Tract on Images and Begging

$10.00
SKU: 1524167308038

Andreas Bodenstein von Karlstadt's Von Abtuhung der Bilder und Das Keyn Bedtler unther den Christen seyn sollen were printed as a single tract on January 27,1522, and headed by a single, dedicatory preface. A rhetorical analysis of both essays shows aspects of Karlstadt's legalistic hermeneutic, with its heavy reliance on the Old Testament, and a notion of "offense" rooted in material-spiritual circumstances that offend God and, consequently, Karlstadt himself.

The Demons Reaction to Sodomy: Witchcraft and Homosexuality in Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola's Strix

$10.00
SKU: 1524167182532

This study draws on theological and demonological works that discuss demons' reaction to sodomy, and concentrates on Gianfrancesco Pico's 1523 dialogue Strix. While the medieval theological view stressed the demons' abhorrence of sodomy and refrainment from engaging in sodomitical relations, fifteenth-century demonologists already found it difficult to reconcile such a view with the newly developed theory of diabolic witchcraft. During the sixteenth century, the notion of the demons' dis gust at sodomy was radically transformed.

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.
