Debate in Early English Poetry and Drama
Series:  Ludus, Volume: 17
Performing Arguments: Debate in Early English Poetry and Drama proposes a fresh performance-centered view of rhetoric by recovering, tracing, and analyzing the trope and tradition of aestheticized argumentation as a mode of performance across several early ludic genres: Middle English debate poetry, the fifteenth-century ‘disguising’ play, the Tudor Humanist debate interlude, and four Shakespearean works in which the dynamics of debate invite the plays’ reconsideration under the new rubric of ‘rhetorical problem plays.’ Performing Arguments further establishes a distinction between instrumental argumentation, through which an arguer seeks to persuade an opponent or audience, and performative argumentation, through which the arguer provides an aesthetic display of verbal or intellectual skill with persuasion being of secondary concern, or of no concern at all. This study also examines rhetorical and performance theories and practices contemporary with the early texts and genres explored, and is further influenced by more recent critical perspectives on resonance and reception and theories of audience response and reconstruction.
The Emerging Ecclesiology of a Precarious Denomination
Author:
The growth of Global Pentecostalism in the past century has been studied and documented from many perspectives. Its leadership, culture and ecclesiology, however, has received scant academic and theological attention. This book based on an extensive research study of the Assemblies of God of Great Britain (AoG) could not be more timely, conducted as AoG entered its centenery decade and faced the challenges that its historic culture and leadership dynamics posed.

The leadership struggles discussed in this book will resonate with any denomination that has grown or wrestled with polity, leadership and culture.

Colours make the map: they affect the map’s materiality, content, and handling. With a wide range of approaches, 14 case studies from various disciplines deal with the colouring of maps from different geographical regions and periods. Connected by their focus on the (hand)colouring of the examined maps, the authors demonstrate the potential of the study of colour to enhance our understanding of the material nature and production of maps and the historical, social, geographical and political context in which they were made.

Die Herausgeber präsentieren eine einmalige Sammlung bis dato unveröffentlichter Briefe von David Zeisberger und seiner Glaubensgenossen und bieten so neue, unerwartete Zugänge zum Nordamerika des 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhunderts, in dem Herrnhuter Missionare, Siedler und indigene Völker aufeinandertrafen, kooperierten, einander bekämpften oder sich gegenseitig instrumentalisierten. Die Quellensammlung zeigt das koloniale Nordamerika bzw. die frühe Republik der USA vor allem aus der Sicht des europäischen Missionars Zeisbergers, der eigene Interessen und Überzeugungen mit denen seiner Umgebung und der Kirchenleitung in Herrnhut in Einklang bringen musste.

The editors of this volume present a unique collection of previously largely unedited letters from David Zeisberger and his colleagues, opening a window into the unknown world of European missionaries, colonial settlers, and native Americans in the most crucial time of early American history. It pays tribute to Moravians working the “American vineyards” and navigating diverse political interests in Pennsylvania, the Northwest Territory, and the borderzone of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, as seen from the perspective of an insider.

In this book, the intricate administrative apparatus of Ptolemaic Egypt comes to light. The study delves deeply into the pivotal roles of the epimeletes, a significant administrative official operating at the nome level. This official was tasked with supervising a diverse array of functions that held paramount importance in ensuring the financial stability and control of the Ptolemaic state. Throughout the book's six chapters and four appendices, the evolution of the epimeletes' responsibilities, and the relationships with other officials are meticulously analysed. Throughout the book, readers are taken on a journey through the third and second centuries B.C., witnessing the epimeletes' involvement in agricultural matters, taxation, monopolies, and more. The book highlights the intricate relationships the epimeletes maintained with various administrative tiers, military officials, and police authorities, shedding light on the collaborative nature of Ptolemaic governance.
