Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Jewish Question: A Victorian English Novelist and the Worlds of Anglo-Jewry, Zionism and Judaism, 1859 - 1913

Author: 

Morris, Ruth

Credentials: 

D/English Aberdeen University; University of York MA

Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Jewish Question investigates the representation of Jewish characters in 70 of the prolific and wildly popular Mrs Braddon's novels from the mid 19th c to the eve of World War One. This study considers how Braddon changes her descriptions across this timeframe and argues that these changes are reflective of the changing social and economic status of the Anglo-Jewish population.

The Transcendent Mystery in Man: A Global Approach to Ecumenism

Author: 

Woznicki, Andrew

Credentials: 

PhD; University of Lublin: late Fleishacker Professor of Philosophy, University of San Francisco; STD- Toronto

Our new release by Professor Andrew N. Woznicki, The Transcendent Mystery in Man: A Global Approach to Ecumenism (Academica Press,2007,ISBN 193314615X) explores man as a being who is endowed not only with immanent but also with transcendent virtual power as well, and through both of them man is capax Dei. The author states that the twofold virtual power enables man to participate in divinity either in a form of an act of believing in the factually existing God, and/or in a form of self discovering of one’s own being as divine.

Author: 

Turner, Tramble T.

This monograph is a serious sustained study of one of Ireland’s most important emerging literary practitioners : Colm Toibin.

Another aspect of this critical evaluation is an examination of Toibin’s career as a journalist and non fiction writer.

Lonely Without God: Graham Greene’s Quixotic Journey of Faith

Author: 

Hill, Wm. Thomas (Editor)

Credentials: 

PhD; Sophia University (Japan)

This discussion of Graham Greene’s faith uses Monsignor Quixote, one of Greene’s later novels, as a departure point to discuss the author’s faith in both secular and divine terms. The scholars involved in this project wanted to explore innocence and experience, peace and war, love and hate in Greene’s richly human literary tapestry. Greene’s Christianity (or lack of it) is explored, as are his major novels and their often bleak and tatty settings.

Charlotte Elizabeth's Ireland

Author: 

Murphy, Cliona

Credentials: 

History Department, California State University Bakersfield

Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna(1790-1846) is remembered for her religious tracts and her commentaries on Industrial Britain, but her writings on Ireland of the 1820s to the 1840s have largely been neglected. Her Irish reflections cover a range of topics from agrarian violence, landlordism, Daniel O' Connell, Catholic Emancipation, tithes, restrictions on the Church of Ireland in the 1830s, to national schools, the Irish Poor Law, Father Matthew, Repeal, the Orange Order, the Irish language, and, of course, the necessity of converting Irish Catholics.
