State, Religion, Community, and the Linguistic Landscape in Ireland, 1770–1870
Author: Nicholas M. Wolf
Publisher: University of Wisconsin Pres
This groundbreaking book shatters historical stereotypes, demonstrating that, in the century before 1870, Ireland was not an anglicized kingdom and was capable of articulating modernity in the Irish language. It gives a dynamic account of the complexity of Ireland in the nineteenth century, developments in church and state, and the adaptive bilingualism found across all regions, social levels, and religious persuasions.
Di fronte alla definizione dogmatica dell'Assunzione, il compito principale della teologia assunzionista dell'epoca sembra consistere nel determinare come e in quali verita rivelate sia contenuto questo privilegio mariano. Dato che questo problema puo essere risolto solo nella luce della tradizione, un aspetto fondamentale della questione sta nel vedere come e in quali verita rivelate la coscienza cristiana, illuminata dalla fede e guidata dallo Spirito Santo, ebbe l'intuizione confusa dell'Assunzione corporea e poi una sempre piu chiara e sistematica certezza del fatto, ed infine anche la prova della sua rivelazione e definibilita. Nella prima parte del libro viene studiato il Trattato nella sua origine, ambiente e contenuto, nella seconda l'influsso sui teologi latini.
More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 1 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
Vernacular grammar and grammarians in medieval Ireland and Wales
Author: Deborah Hayden
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing Company
Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
Grammatica, Gramadach, and Gramadeg : Vernacular grammar and grammarians in medieval Ireland and Wales is concerned with the history of linguistic ideas and literary theory in the vernacular languages of medieval Ireland and Wales. While much good work, especially by Vivian Law, has been done on the Latin materials, this volume is the first to engage with the vernacular texts. It consists of ten essays that explore a range of interconnected topics relating to these themes. Yet while the contributors offer a close analysis of the development of linguistic thought in these literary traditions, they likewise seek to situate their discussions within the wider context of European grammatical learning during this period, considering both the widespread influence of texts from classical linguistic tradition and also the significance of sources from other contemporary learned disciplines for our understanding of the history of linguistics in the medieval world.
Printed Renaissance Commentaries on Valerius Maximus (1470-1600)
Author: Marijke Crab
Publisher: LIT Verlag Münster
Category: Exempla in literature
This monograph sheds new light on the Renaissance reception of Valerius Maximus, whose collection of Memorable Deeds and Sayings - nowadays little studied - was once considered "the most important book next to the Bible." Offering a close study of all the Latin commentaries on Valerius Maximus printed between 1470 and 1600, the present volume explores how his exempla were read in different times and places and in different intellectual milieus, while also enhancing our general understanding of humanist commentary - which is now, more than ever, a thriving subject of research.
