Tradition and Innovation in Russian Church Slavonic Hymnography

Author: 

Nelson, Elena

Credentials: 

Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley

Liturgical languages are notoriously rigid: they are fixed, sacred, and resistant to change, despite surrounding linguistic developments. This work focuses on the highly specialized and stylized liturgical language of Russian Church Slavonic (RCS). Historically, authorities strictly controlled RCS so that it would conform to established norms. Nevertheless, innovations arose in response to various conditions.

Author: 

Norman, York

Italia Rediviva: A Social and Cultural History of Italy, 1740-1900

Author: 

Kent, Neil

Credentials: 

Cambridge University

This book seeks to provide a readable history, rich in both anecdotes and statistics, for students and a wide reading public who are interested in Italy in a period of history which - while it has been widely examined with respect to the Risorgimento as a positive and progressive movement which united Italy and enabled it to enter the modern world – has failed to consider Italy's multiplicity of cultures, art, architecture and societies. The period from 1750-1900, however, is neglected.

Southern, Antonia

Credentials: 

Historian and biographer, Principal, WestminsterTutors, author of Forlorn Hope: Soldier Radicals of the Seventeenth Century and Player, Playwright and Preacher's Kid: The Story of Nathan Field, 1587 - 1620

A full scale biography of Sir John Harington of Kelston, courtier, place-seeker, writer, inventor satirist and would-be Bishop of Dublin has long been needed and wished for by historians as various as Namier, Butterfield, Carr, MacFarlane and AJP Taylor. Antonia Southern's new monograph is an literary/historical biography of this multi-faceted and controversial character, living in times euphemistically described by contemporaries as 'tricky', and deserving to be better known and understood for his great gifts and achievements.
