    Après un terrible incendie qui a détruit l'église Saint James située sur le campus, les dirigeants de l'université Hadleigh en profitent pour chasser cette présence chrétienne hors de l'établissement. Pour défendre ses droits, le pasteur David Hill va faire appel à son frère avocat, avec lequel il est en froid depuis longtemps, rouvrant ainsi de vieilles blessures du passé.

  • When Germany occupied Hungary in 1944, fifteen-year-old Miklos Friedman drew on his wits to survive. Recruited into forced labour, sent to a ghetto and, ultimately, to the Nazi camps of Auschwitz and Mühldorf, Miklos never stopped fighting to change his fate. After the war, he risked everything in order to leave his past behind. Decades later, a chance meeting in Toronto led Miklos, now Michael Mason, to discover the power of his new name.

  • Georg Baselitz s'est intéressé à la gravure dès le début de son parcours artistique. Bénéficiaire d'une bourse à la Villa Romana de Florence, il commence dès 1965 à collectionner le maniériste italien Le Parmesan. Ses premières gravures remontent à 1963/64, celles sur bois à 1966, suivies en 1977 par les linogravures - des travaux publiés par Fred Jahnà Johannes Gachnang dans un répertoire de ses oeuvres en deux volumes majoritairement en noir et blanc (1963-1974 et 1974-1982). Comme dans sa peinture et sa sculpture, ses gravures traitent de complexes thématiques tels que héros, bergers, aigles, arbres et bien d'autres.

  • "Dans les dessins de Fred Deux, au départ, il y a un peu de peinture, comme une nappe hasardeuse, légère ou plus insistante.
    Viendra ensuite un maillage graphique, par-dessus, à la plume ou à la mine de plomb. Est-ce du dessin ?

  • Monographie dédiée à l'ensemble de 70 pièces d'Arnulf Rainer constituant le Fonds Michel Foëx, dont Rainer Michael Mason présente la première étude.
    Le fonds du galeriste genevois Michael Foëx constitué par de nombreux travaux de l'artiste autrichien Arnulf Rainer a fait l'objet d'une donation au MAMCO de Genève en juillet. Elle se compose d'oeuvres sur papier (lithographie, taille-douce, photographie, dessin) réalisées entre 1966 et 1987. Ce livre, illustré de toutes les reproductions des oeuvres données, en est l'étude menée par Rainer Michael Mason, historien de l'art et ancien conservateur du Cabinet des estampes de Genève. Il représente un jalon dans les liens nourris par l'artiste avec l'arc lémanique et témoigne de sa fascination pour l'expressivité de la figure et la symbolique de la croix. Autant de points forts analysés par l'auteur à travers un ensemble d'oeuvres étudié pour la première fois.

  • Un accident de voiture, une chute en vélo, et votre vie bascule. Du jour au lendemain, vous pourriez ne plus vous reconnaître dans le miroir. Coordinateur médical, Michael Paul Mason consacre sa vie à trouver l'impossible : des thérapies adaptées pour des hommes et des femmes souffrant de lésions cérébrales aussi graves qu'extraordinaires... Une femme privée de mémoire, condamnée à vivre dans un présent perpétuel. Un père de famille aimant, persuadé qu'il est déjà mort et dévoré par les vers. Un enfant transformé en monstre de violence. Un indien Cherokee, pilier de sa tribu, mais pris en otage par une étrange double vie... Dans cet ouvrage profondément humain, Michael Paul Mason nous livre leurs destins avec une honnêteté bouleversante, nous invitant dans l'intimité de ces patients et de leurs familles, insistant sur l'importance de rester soudés face à de telles épreuves.

  • In recent decades, reception history has become an increasingly important and controversial topic of discussion in biblical studies. Rather than attempting to recover the original meaning of biblical texts, reception history focuses on exploring the history of interpretation. In doing so it locates the dominant historical-critical scholarly paradigm within the history of interpretation, rather than over and above it. At the same time, the breadth of material and
    hermeneutical issues that reception history engages with questions any narrow understanding of the history of the Bible and its effects on faith communities.

    The challenge that reception history faces is to explore tradition without either reducing its meaning to what faith communities think is important, or merely offering anthologies of interesting historical interpretations. This major new handbook addresses these matters by presenting reception history as an enterprise (not a method) that questions and understands tradition afresh.

    The Oxford Handbook of the Reception History of the Bible consciously allows for the interplay of the traditional and the new through a two-part structure. Part I comprises a set of essays surveying the outline, form, and content of twelve key biblical books that have been influential in the history of interpretation. Part II offers a series of in-depth case studies of the interpretation of particular key biblical passages or books with due regard for the specificity of their social,
    cultural or aesthetic context.

    These case studies span two millennia of interpretation by readers with widely differing perspectives. Some are at the level of a group response (from Gnostic readings of Genesis, to Post-Holocaust Jewish interpretations of Job); others examine individual approaches to texts (such as Augustine and Pelagius on Romans, or Gandhi on the Sermon on the Mount). Several chapters examine historical moments, such as the 1860 debate over Genesis and evolution, while others look to wider themes such as
    non-violence or millenarianism. Further chapters study in detail the works of popular figures who have used the Bible to provide inspiration for their creativity, from Dante and Handel, to Bob Dylan and Dan Brown.

  • In 1992 Smithsonian anthropologist Michael Atwood Mason traveled to Cuba for initiation as a priest into the Santería religion. Since then he has created an active oricha “house” and has initiated five others as priests. He is a rare combination: a scholar-practitioner who is equally fluent in his profession and his religion. Interweaving his roles as researcher and priest, Mason explores Santería as a contemporary phenomenon and offers an understanding of its complexity through his own experiences and those of its many practitioners. Balancing deftly between a devotee's account of participation and an anthropologist's theoretical analysis, Living Santería offers an original and insightful understanding of this growing religious tradition.

  • The editors and contributors to this volume should be justifiably proud of their participation in the tenth triennial meeting of the Chemical Signals in Vertebrates International Symposium. This meeting was held 27 years after the initial gathering of participants in Saratoga Springs, New York from June 6* to 9*, 1976. Subsequent meetings have been held every three years in Syracuse, New York; Sarasota, Florida; Laramie, Wyoming; Oxford, England; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Tubingen, Germany; Ithaca, New York; and Krakow, Poland. This tenth aimiversary symposium was held from July 29* through August 1*' in Corvallis, Oregon and was hosted by the Zoology Department and Biology Programs of Oregon State University. This book also represents the tenth in a series of books on chemical communication, chemical ecology, olfactory and vomeronasal research in vertebrate species. The species covered in the chapters herein range from fish to mammals including humans. By taxonomic breakdown the mammals are the most represented in number of species and chapter contributions. However, the hosts of the meeting endeavored to have some representative contributions covering all of the major vertebrate taxa. As in past years, the meeting was well-represented with just over 100 participants from 13 different nations. Plenary talks focused on some of the non-mammalian groups that have tended to be less represented in these symposia. Thus, we had a very nice overview of comparisons and contrasts of invertebrate chemical commimication to vertebrate systems.

  • This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book breaks new ground by situating animals and their diseases at the very heart of modern medicine. In demonstrating their historical significance as subjects and shapers of medicine, it offers important insights into past animal lives, and reveals that what we think of as `human' medicine was in fact deeply zoological.Each chapter analyses an important episode in which animals changed and were changed by medicine. Ranging across the animal inhabitants of Britain's zoos, sick sheep on Scottish farms, unproductive livestock in developing countries, and the tapeworms of California and Beirut, they illuminate the multi-species dimensions of modern medicine and its rich historical connections with biology, zoology, agriculture and veterinary medicine. The modern movement for One Health - whose history is also analyzed - is therefore revealed as just the latest attempt to improve health by working across species and disciplines. This book will appeal to historians of animals, science and medicine, to those involved in the promotion and practice of One Health today.
