Tending The Vineyard: Maritime Religion On Martha's Vineyard From 1824-1978, Steven H. Park

Steven H. Park

The first part of this paper will give a brief introduction to maritime missiology, the second section will trace the beginnings of the Boston Seaman’s Friend Society in the nineteenth century and the third will focus on the Vineyard Haven branch of that work well into the twentieth century. Using source material from the American Seamen’s Friend Society - there is a 5,000 document collection of the ASFS papers in the G.W.

On Zion's Mount: Mormons, Indians, And The American Landscape, John Bowes Nov 2008

On Zion's Mount: Mormons, Indians, And The American Landscape, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

Jared Farmer explains in the opening sentence of this book that he has written "the creation story of a landmark". More specifically, he has written about the manner in which Mt. Timpanogos, a peak that is neither the highest in the Wasatch Range nor the most historically prominent landmark in the Utah Valley, became such a beloved monument in contemporary Utah. This task requires a great deal of effort and insight, for Mt. Timpanogos's rise to prominence depended on a complicated series of events that are closely tied to the ways in which Mormons in particular and Americans in ...


University Of South Florida Libraries Holocaust & Genocide Studies Draft Business Plan, Mark I. Greenberg Nov 2008

University Of South Florida Libraries Holocaust & Genocide Studies Draft Business Plan, Mark I. Greenberg

Mark I. Greenberg

Genocide and mass violence have become global threats to peace and security and a sad testament to the human condition. Almost a half million genocide and torture victims currently reside in the United States, with millions more suffering silently in other parts of the world. Recognizing an important opportunity to unify the University of South Florida’s wide-ranging Holocaust & genocide studies initiatives and to contribute to global education and action, the USF Libraries have created a global interdisciplinary center to better understand and prevent genocide. USF Libraries Holocaust & Genocide Studies Center will become an internationally recognized center for the quality ...


Buffalo Hunt International Trade And The Virtual Extinction Of The North American Bison, M. Scott Taylor Nov 2008

Buffalo Hunt International Trade And The Virtual Extinction Of The North American Bison, M. Scott Taylor

M. Scott Taylor

In the 16th century, North America contained 25-30 million buffalo; by the late 19th century less than 100 remained. While removing the buffalo east of the Mississippi took settlers two centuries, the remaining 10 to 15 million buffalo on the Great Plains were killed in a punctuated slaughter in a little over 10 years. I employ theory, data from international trade statistics, and first person accounts to argue that the slaughter on the plains was initiated by a foreign-made innovation and fueled by a foreign demand for industrial leather. Ironically, the ultimate cause of this sad chapter in American environmental ...


International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr Nov 2008

International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

"Terrorism" is a term that cannot be given a stable defintion. Or rather, it can, but to do so forstalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organising ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing defintions, accounts and explanations of terrorism. Which term is used in any particular context is inextricably tied to judgemements about the legitimacy of the action in question and of the political system against which it is directed ...

Liberdade, Ética E Direito, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Further than Ethics concieved as mere obedience, Republican Ethics expresses the idea of duty for freedom and Liberty. After Law concieved as only duty and imperative norms from power to the subjects, there is the possibility of a fraternal law, in new patterns. This article explores several ways in a new ethics and a new law paradigms, after the objective Roman Law and the subjective modern Law.

Bartolomé De Las Casas (1484-1566), Rev. David Orique, O.P. Sep 2008

Bartolomé De Las Casas (1484-1566), Rev. David Orique, O.P.

Rev. David T. Orique, O.P.

Bartolomé de Las Casas, a Spanish cleric, Dominican friar, and New World bishop, is a major figure in the sixteenth-century critique of the conquest and colonization of the Americas. During his life, this juridical scholar became known as the Protector of the Indigenous, a champion of justice, a prophet of human rights, and the conscience of Spain, as well as public enemy number one for anti-Indigenous forces. Over time, this daring Renaissance humanist has become known in a variety of ways: religiously, as the Apostle of the Indians; anachronistically, as the Father of Liberation Theology; insightfully, as an early proponent ...

Pictures From The Past: Saint-Lazare As A Prison: 1792-1940, Edward R. Udovic

Serving as the mother house of the Congregation of the Mission from 1632-1792 in Paris. Saint-Lazare was confiscated by the state at the outbreak of the French Revolution. The facility served as an infamous woman's prison until it was finally torn down beginning in 1932.


The Blasphemies Of Thomas Aikenhead: Boundaries Of Belief On The Eve Of The Enlightenment, Michael Graham Aug 2008

The Blasphemies Of Thomas Aikenhead: Boundaries Of Belief On The Eve Of The Enlightenment, Michael Graham

Michael F. Graham

This is the first modern book-length study of the case of Thomas Aikenhead, the sometime University of Edinburgh student who in 1697 earned the unfortunate distinction of being the last person executed for blasphemy in Britain. Taking a micro-historical approach, Michael Graham uses the Aikenhead case to open a window into the world of Edinburgh, Scotland and Britain in its transition from the confessional era of the Reformation and the covenants, which placed high emphasis on the defence of orthodox belief, to the polite, literary world of the Enlightenment, of which Edinburgh would become a major centre. Graham traces the ...
