Identifying sacramentalism as the key to the poetry and spirituality of Gerard Manley Hopkins, this study suggests that Hopkins most dominantly emphasized the sacramental Mystical Body of the Church and that his poems aspire to see past the out-scape of nature and humanity to revelations of spiritual inscape.

In Darkness and Secrecy brings together ethnographic examinations of Amazonian assault sorcery, witchcraft, and injurious magic, or “dark shamanism.” Anthropological reflections on South American shamanism have tended to emphasize shamans’ healing powers and positive influence. This collection challenges that assumption by showing that dark shamans are, in many Amazonian cultures, quite different from shamanic healers and prophets. Assault sorcery, in particular, involves violence resulting in physical harm or even death. While highlighting the distinctiveness of such practices, In Darkness and Secrecy reveals them as no less relevant to the continuation of culture and society than curing and prophecy. The contributors suggest that the persistence of dark shamanism can be understood as a form of engagement with modernity. These essays, by leading anthropologists of South American shamanism, consider assault sorcery as it is practiced in parts of Brazil, Guyana, Venezuela, and Peru. They analyze the social and political dynamics of witchcraft and sorcery and their relation to cosmology, mythology, ritual, and other forms of symbolic violence and aggression in each society studied. They also discuss the relations of witchcraft and sorcery to interethnic contact and the ways that shamanic power may be co-opted by the state. In Darkness and Secrecy includes reflections on the ethical and practical implications of ethnographic investigation of violent cultural practices. Contributors.

There's a serial killer loose, killing the women from Bourbon street, and Joseph, a vice cop, has to find out who's behind it. Each one is killed the same way, a small knife wound to the heart, almost as if it was made with a dagger. Each of the victims had rope burns on their wrists and ankles. There was no doubt about it; these were ritualistic killings, sacrifices. Now they had Jennie, the woman Joseph loved more than life, and it was up to him to find out where their cult's headquarters was, where they held his beloved Jennie, before it was too late. A Light in Darkness is a mystery novel, but it is also a love story of the passionate love between Jennie and Joseph, a love that even the forces of darkness could not stop, as they fulfill the destiny that God had called them to. A Light in Darkness is the prequel to Embracing the Light. A Light in Darkness is the beginning. The beginning of their love, the beginning of the adventure.

Within merely a few decades after the Russian Revolution, the mighty Russian Jewish community, world-largest and millennium-old, turned into a faint shadow of itself. Never before had world Jewry experienced such a rapid, catastrophic collapse of such an immense and long-established community. Never before had so many young Jews rushed so eagerly after false prophets-in this case Communist ideologues — leaving in their wake the ruins of their own nation and contributing to horrific cataclysms throughout the world. In this frank account, Samuil Khasin offers a remarkable personal view of the forces behind the astonishing collapse. Through the lens of one representative family's life, he sheds a penetrating light on the dramatic evolution of his generation and country from enthusiastic acceptance of Bolshevism to devastations of Stalin's terror to bitter disillusionment and rejection. Speaking as one of those who were both victims and participants of the momentous events, he helps to explore the mystery and the horror of the tragically intertwined historical disasters-the rise of Soviet Communism and the collapse of the Russian Jewry.

He descended into hell. Hans Urs von Balthasar, one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century, placed this affirmation of the Nicene Creed at the heart of his reflection on the world-altering events of Holy Week, asserting that this identification of God with the human experience is at the "absolute center" of the Christian faith. Yet is such a descent to suffering really the essence of Catholic belief about the mystery of Holy Saturday? Alyssa Lyra Pitstick's Light in Darkness -- the first comprehensive treatment of Balthasar's theology of Holy Saturday -- draws on the multiple yet unified resources of authoritative Catholic teaching on Christ's descent to challenge Balthasar's conclusions. Pitstick conducts a thorough investigation of Balthasar's position that Christ suffered in his descent into hell and asks whether that is compatible with traditional teaching about Christ. Light in Darkness is a thorough argument for the existence and authority of a traditional Catholic doctrine of Christ's descent as manifested in creeds, statements of popes and councils, Scripture, and art from Eastern and Western traditions. Pitstick's carefully argued, contrarian work is sure to spur debate across the theological spectrum.
