Light And Dark Sides Of Spiritualism: The Eddy Brothers And The Shakers, Christian Goodwillie 2018 Hamilton College

Light And Dark Sides Of Spiritualism: The Eddy Brothers And The Shakers, Christian Goodwillie

American Communal Societies Quarterly

In his 1899 work Manifestation of Spiritualism Among the Shakers Elder Henry Blinn reflected on the marvelous events that dominated life in Shaker communities from 1837 into the 1850s. Looking back on these events fifty years later Blinn realized that what the Shakers experienced was but a precursor to the popular movement called Spiritualism that swept America and Europe in the second half of the nineteenth century.

In fact, the experience of the Shakers as progenitors of, and then participants in, the Spiritualist movement, is far more complex than Blinn’s retrospective stated. This article will examine one dimension of ...


A Gold Blossom: Practice, Rhetorical Invention, And Spirit Control In Amanda Jones’S Psychic Autobiography, Elizabeth Lowry 2018 Hamilton College

A Gold Blossom: Practice, Rhetorical Invention, And Spirit Control In Amanda Jones’S Psychic Autobiography, Elizabeth Lowry

American Communal Societies Quarterly

Born in 1835 in East Bloomfield, New York, Amanda Theodosia Jones has been described as a teacher, inventor, businesswoman, poet, and Spiritualist. Jones engaged in many intellectual and artistic practices over her lifetime, but her autobiography details how each was informed by the one practice that she considered to be her true calling: her spiritual practice as a psychic medium. Her work as an autobiographer reveals how she attempted to contextualize her achievements and interests to demonstrate how they were unified by the guiding principles of the spirit world. As such, I aim to examine Jones’s practice and self-representation ...


A Bibliography Of Shaker-Authored And Shaker-Related Articles In Spiritualist Periodicals, David Newell, Cass Nawrocki 2018 Hamilton College

A Bibliography Of Shaker-Authored And Shaker-Related Articles In Spiritualist Periodicals, David Newell, Cass Nawrocki

American Communal Societies Quarterly

This beginning bibliography of periodical articles relating to Shaker Spiritualism is but a small piece of a much larger project: A new bibliography of monographs and articles by and about the Shakers currently being compiled under the leadership of Randy Ericson. The nearly two hundred articles about Shaker Spiritualism were obtained from three primary sources. First, Mary Richmond in her bibliography Shaker Literature (1977), cataloged about thirty articles and we have included them here, often with additional comment. Second, we also found numerous articles in a variety of other digital collections including the American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection. Third ...

Santo Tomás Apóstol De Abiquiú Church, Abiquiú, New Mexico - Burial Register Extractions 1777-1827, Samuel Sisneros 2018 University of New Mexico

Santo Tomás Apóstol De Abiquiú Church, Abiquiú, New Mexico - Burial Register Extractions 1777-1827, Samuel Sisneros

University Libraries Staff Publications

This dataset was created as part of a recovery project of several New Mexico Catholic Church registers that were missing since 1933 or perhaps earlier. The registers contain entries of parishioners being baptized, married and receiving burial rites at the church of Santo Tomás Apóstol de Abiquiú, Abiquiú, New Mexico. The Center for Southwest Research (CSWR) at UNM digitized the registers, at which time a surrogate microfilm copy was made and the originals were transferred to the Archives of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. The microfilm edition has been catalogued in the UNM library system. Extractions of the registers were ...

Biblical Assyria And Other Anxieties In The British Empire, Steven W. Holloway 2018 James Madison University

Biblical Assyria And Other Anxieties In The British Empire, Steven W. Holloway

Steven W Holloway

The successful “invasion” of ancient Mesopotamia by explorers in the pay of the British Museum Trustees resulted in best-selling publications, a treasure-trove of Assyrian antiquities for display purposes and scholarly excavation, and a remarkable boost to the quest for confirmation of the literal truth of the Bible. The public registered its delight with the findings through the turnstyle- twirling appeal of the British Museum exhibits, and a series of appropriations of Assyrian art motifs and narratives in popular culture - jewelry, bookends, clocks, fine arts, theater productions, and a walk-through Assyrian palace among other period mansions at the Sydenham Crystal Palace ...


Assur Is King Of Persia: Illustrations Of The Book Of Esther In Some Nineteenth-Century Sources, Steven W. Holloway 2018 James Madison University

Assur Is King Of Persia: Illustrations Of The Book Of Esther In Some Nineteenth-Century Sources, Steven W. Holloway

Steven W Holloway

The marriage of archaeological referencing and picture Bibles in the nineteenth century resulted in an astonishing variety of guises worn by the court of Ahasuerus in Esther. Following the exhibition of Neo-Assyrian sculpture in the British Museum and the wide circulation of such images in various John Murray publications, British illustrators like Henry Anelay defaulted to Assyrian models for kings and rulers in the Old Testament, including the principal actors in Esther, even though authentic Achaemenid Persian art had been available for illustrative pastiche for decades. This curious adoptive choice echoed British national pride in its splendid British Museum collection ...
