Bodily And Spiritual Hygiene In Medieval And Early Modern Literature

While most people today take hygiene and medicine for granted, they both have had their own history. We can gain deep insights into the pre-modern world by studying its health-care system, its approaches to medicine, and concept of hygiene. Already the early Middle Ages witnessed great interest in bathing (hot and cold), swimming, and good personal hygiene. Medical activities grew over time, but even early medieval monks were already great experts in treating the sick. The contributions examine literary, medical, historical texts and images and probe the information we can glean from them. The interdisciplinary approach of this volume makes it possible to view this large field in a complex and diversified manner, taking into account both early medieval and early modern treatises on medicine, water, bathing, and health. Such a cultural-historical perspective creates a most valuable bridge connecting literary and scientific documents under the umbrella of the history of mentality and history of everyday life. The volume does not aim at idealizing the past, but it definitely intends to deconstruct modern myths about the 'dirty' and 'unhealthy' Middle Ages and early modern age.

In life, people will encounter rites—moments of grace that lift one’s consciousness out of the everyday mode. They create and hold something sacred. In relation to this, author Sitara shares The 7 Rites to Achieve Happiness and Spiritual Enlightenment, her new book released through Xlibris. All religions, whether they are ancient or new age religions, contain some sort of rites. People who hold nothing sacred are “lost.” Rites open the doorway into the internal reality of the universal imagination, where life is unlimited, spirit reigns and anything is possible. The 7 Rites that Sitara introduces will open the door to one’s interior riches, where life pours itself from a limitless source. Anything can be achieved through the use of this force. Through this book, readers can learn The 7 Rites: 1) The Rite of Association; 2) The Rite of Cleansing; 3) The Rite of Luck; 4) The Rite of Love; 5) The Rite of Relationships; 6) The Rite of Wealth; and 7) The Rite of Pilgrimage. Following The 7 Rites to Achieve Happiness and Spiritual Enlightenment will allow the readers to channel the spiritual force they acquire to increase the presence of soul and happiness in this world and become enlightened. The 7 Rites are not intended to replace the religions of the World, such as Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, or the Worship of Ancestors and Nature Spirits. They will only serve to enhance what the people already know, and if they possess a positive mental state when following these rites, they will achieve a great deal of happiness and will not feel alone in this World.

A Cultural History Of Bathing In Late Antiquity And Early Byzantium

This book discusses social, religious and medical attitudes towards bathing in Late Antiquity. It examines the place of bathing in late Roman and early Byzantine society as seen in the literary, historical, and documentary sources from the late antique period. The author argues that bathing became one of the most important elements in defining what it meant to be a Roman; indeed, the social and cultural value of bathing in the context of late Roman society more than justified the efforts and expense put into preserving bathing establishments and the associated culture. The book contributes a unique perspective to understanding the changes and transformations undergone by the bathing culture of the day, and illustrates the important role played by this culture in contributing to the transitional character of the late antique period. In his examination of the attitudes of medical professionals and laymen alike, and the focus on its recuperative utility, Zytka provides an innovative and detailed approach to bathing.

Water A Spiritual History

Water has long been associated with the magical, the mysterious and the divine. From sacred springs to holy wells, and from hydropathic cures and temperance reform to the modern spa, Ian Bradley explores how water's creative, health-giving and restorative powers have been conceived, worshipped and marketed in an essentially spiritual way. In pre-Christian times, springs and rivers were seen as the dwelling places of deities with magical life-giving and curative powers, associated especially with the feminine and with ritual cleansing and rebirth. With the coming of Christianity, water was incorporated into Christian ritual and tradition through baptism and the cult of holy wells. From the 16th century onwards, the benefits of water came to be seen more in terms of therapeutic healing than the miraculous. Through the development of drinking and bathing cures, spas and hydrotherapy, a more scientific but still essentially spiritual understanding of the curative properties of water was developed. By the eighteenth century, spas and watering places had acquired their own enchanted and mysterious qualities, in many ways taking the place of medieval pilgrim shrines. Now, a new, more hedonistic kind of pilgrim comes to modern spas to experience a potent post-modern elixir of self-oriented well-being.

How terrible are the words that issued from the mouths of those deceivers from amongst the jews, who used false statements to insert intrigue into the books of Islam. Their words about the possible use of magic to bewitch the most honorable one of all creation, Mohammad (cpth), are nothing more than mere lies. The same is true of another of their sayings- fie on them (may God make them as ugly as their deeds)- wherein they say that the accursed Satan controlled the Prophet (cpth), as well as other of our great masters, including Solomon, Job and our father Adam. Their statements are easily refutable, and just as our of every pot pours that which it contains, woe to them because of what pours from their spirits. As a result of such intrigues, the belief in magic, along with other spiritual diseases, is spread amongst the Muslims by disbelieving magicians and their followers- to the extent that one can hardly find a house in which there does not live at least one of their followers- These people believe the devil's call because they have listened to false scholars instead of God and have turned their back on the Qur'an as if they knew better. Now, however, it is time for the voice of truth to be heard by those people, whose forefathers were not warned and who therefore remain heedless. The Great Scholar (Mohammad Amin Sheikho) will bring them out of the darkness and into the light with the use of God's Luminous Book, for the good of all those who believe in Al'lah and the Last Day. God says: "And repent to Al'lah, all of you, oh believers, so that you may be successful." The Holy Qur'an, Fortress 24, An-Nour(Light),verse 31

Spiritual Care In Everyday Nursing Practice

As changes in technology, policy and management put an increasing emphasis on processes and procedures in nursing and health care, how do we continue to make room for compassion, the ancient human value that calls most nurses to the profession? In Spiritual Care in Everyday Nursing Practice, Janice Clarke argues that it is compassionate care of the whole person, body and soul, which is at the heart of nursing practice that values the individual and respects their dignity. Rather than seeing spiritual care as an addition to what nurses already do, this new approach considers it a natural part of compassionate care which doesn't present the nurse with an extra ambiguous burden to deal with. Providing a brief historical introduction to the concept of spirituality, Clarke examines the ways in which our spiritual life – a source of strength and meaning – can be influenced by factors such as age, illness and suffering, and mental illness, as well as our religious beliefs. Providing a practical guide to talking about and working with spirituality, she explores how nurses might imbue all their practice including the physical aspects of care – from use of touch to helping patients to move, bathe and eat – with an attention to spiritual needs. A timely, accessible and practical introduction to a concept that is under-explored in contemporary nursing literature, this book will be of great value to students and professionals alike.
