This pocket size book is for the soul looking to learn how to be ever more devoted to Our Lady. Fr. Emile Neubert, a 20th century, French Mariologist, writes this work in-depth as compared to his condensed book, "My Ideal, Jesus, son of Mary." Fr. Neubert, a Marianist, one of the finest Mariologists of the twentieth century, is not only the author of scholarly works, but of an amazing number of excellent books on matters spiritual and pastoral from a Marian perspective. This work, only now published in an English translation, first appeared in France in 1952 and was quickly translated into most European languages, but never in English. Fr. Neubert considered it one of his most important works. Countless priests have found this text an inspiring book of meditation and a source of priestly renewal. Throughout this work, Mary is presented especially as Mother: the Mother of God, our Mother, the Mother of all the members of the Mystical Body of Christ. Mary’s Motherhood is an image of the maternal character of the Church. For Fr. Neubert, Marian devotion consists not so much in specific practices but, rather, in offering one’s life to the Virgin Mary, an offering which has an ecclesial dimension. For St. Louis Grignion de Montfort, Marian consecration is a solemn renewal of one’s baptismal commitment confided to the Virgin Mother. For Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, Marian consecration is to assist Mary in her apostolic mission: as she gave birth to Christ, “the First-born among many brethren, she cooperates, with a mother’s love, in the generation and formation of the faithful” (Lumen Gentium 63).

Edith Stein, canonized in 1998 and now a co-patroness of Europe, is rightly coming to be seen as one of the most important saints for our times. The first part of this book presents the life of Edith Stein while going behind the well known lables - Jewess, philosopher, Carmelite nun, martyr of Auschwitz - to reveal the inner struggles of a truly inspirational person: guided in all her thoughts and actions by a constant search for the truth and the acceptance of the will of God, even when it led to the ultimate gift of herself. Added to these ideals which Edith lived out in the challenge of everyday reality, are the ideal figures whom she kept ever before her eyes; Edith's love of Jesus and Mary, Old Testament characters and modern-day saints forms the second part of this book which draws upon her writings on prayer, some of which are not yet published. This book presents Edith Stein to the readers as a companion in the Christian life - one who found her courage and fulfilment through daily contact with God in prayer and in this way was able, in Edith's own words, to 'go to the world in order to carry the divine life into it'. Joanne Mosley has written and lectured widely on Edith Stein for a number of years. She is an assistant editor of Mount Carmel, the spiritual review published by the Teresian Carmelites, and gives retreats on the spirituality and saints of Carmel.

The Oxford Handbook of Mary offers an interdisciplinary guide to Marian Studies, including chapters on textual, literary, and media analysis; theology; Church history; art history; studies on devotion in a variety of forms; cultural history; folk tradition; gender analysis; apparitions and apocalypticism. Featuring contributions from a distinguished group of international scholars, the Handbook looks at both Eastern and Western perspectives and attempts to correct imbalance in previous books on Mary towards the West. The volume also considers Mary in Islam and pilgrimages shared by Christian, Muslim, and Jewish adherents. While Mary can be a source of theological disagreement, this authoritative collection shows Mary's rich potential for inter-faith and inter-denominational dialogue and shared experience. It covers a diverse number of topics that show how Mary and Mariology are articulated within ecclesiastical contexts but also on their margins in popular devotion. Newly-commissioned essays describe some of the central ideas of Christian Marian thought, while also challenging popularly-held notions. This invaluable reference for students and scholars illustrates the current state of play in Marian Studies as it is done across the world.

Mr. Lang does not claim to have said the lastword in the tragedy of Mary Stuart. She and Marie Antoinette will probably continue to furnish "copy" for ages to come. As long as the "copy' is given to us in the manner of this book it will continue to be welcome. Pictures of the dramatis persona; of the Mystery give a brilliant impression of the ethics of the period following the Reformation in Scotland. The examination of much new material and the careful investigation of all documents bearing on the case add historic value to the book. Mr. Lang forms no conclusions; the "Mystery" is not unveiled, but the fascinating Queen stands before us in all the charm of her beauty and misfortune, surrounded by her treacherous and unruly nobles, and on finishing the book we feel that we have sat at the trial by an impartial court of justice, that was never accorded her in her lifetime, and can act as judge and jury for ourselves, resting assured that we have heard all the evidence in the case. This book is fully illustrated and annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer. Contents: Introduction I - Dramatis Personae Ii - The Minor Characters Iii - The Characters Before Riccio's Murder V - Between The Baptism And The Murder Vi - The Murder Of Darnley Vii - The Confessions Of Paris Viii – Mary's Conduct After The Murder Ix - The Emergence Of The Casket Letters X - The Casket Letters Xi - The Letters At The Conference Of York Xii - The Letters At Westminster And Hampton Court Xiii – Mary's Attitude After The Conference Xiv - Internal Evidence Of The Letters Xv - The Six Minor Casket Letters Xvi - The Casket Sonnets Xvii - Conclusions As To The Letters And The Possible Forgers Xviii - Later History Of Casket And Letters Appendix A - The Supposed Body Of Bothwell Appendix B - The Burning Of Lyon King Of Arms Appendix C - The Date Of Mary's Visit To Glasgow Appendix D - The Band For Darnley's Murder Appendix E - The Translations Of The Casket Letters

The remarkable life of P.L. Travers, the creator of Mary Poppins. An arresting life…Lawson is superb at excavating the details. –Library Journal The spellbinding stories of Mary Poppins, the quintessentially English and utterly magical nanny, have been loved by generations. She flew into the lives of the unsuspecting Banks family in a children’s book that was instantly hailed as a classic, then became a household name when Julie Andrews stepped into the title role in Walt Disney’s hugely successful and equally classic film. But the Mary Poppins in the stories was not the cheery film character. She was tart and sharp, plain and vain. She was a remarkable character. The story of Mary Poppins’ creator, as this definitive biography reveals, is equally remarkable. The fabulous English nanny was actually conceived by an Australian, Pamela Lyndon Travers, who came to London in 1924 from Queensland as a journalist. She became involved with Theosophy, traveled in the literary circles of W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot, and became a disciple of the famed spiritual guru, Gurdjieff. She famously clashed with Walt Disney over the adaptation of the Mary Poppins books into film. Travers, whom Disney accused of vanity for “thinking you know more about Mary Poppins than I do,” was as tart and opinionated as Julie Andrews’s big-screen Mary Poppins was cheery. Yet it was a love of mysticism and magic that shaped Travers’s life as well as the character of Mary Poppins. The clipped, strict, and ultimately mysterious nanny who emerged from her pen was the creation of someone who remained inscrutable and enigmatic to the end of her ninety-six years. Valerie Lawson’s illuminating biography provides the first full look whose personal journey is as intriguing as her beloved characters.

The series Religion and Society (RS) contributes to the exploration of religions as social systems – both in Western and non-Western societies; in particular, it examines religions in their differentiation from, and intersection with, other cultural systems, such as art, economy, law and politics. Due attention is given to paradigmatic case or comparative studies that exhibit a clear theoretical orientation with the empirical and historical data of religion and such aspects of religion as ritual, the religious imagination, constructions of tradition, iconography, or media. In addition, the formation of religious communities, their construction of identity, and their relation to society and the wider public are key issues of this series.
