: Aristotle’s treatment of pathē deserves attention; Stoic treatments of pathos and eupatheia reward scrutiny; studies of particular emotions reveal subtle and systematic thinking. 2 When it comes to Plato, though, Descartes may have been on to something.

Volume 8: Pentecostals and the Body (2017)


Edited by Michael Wilkinson and Peter Althouse

The intersection of religion, ritual, emotion, globalization, migration, sexuality, gender, race, and class, is especially insightful for researching Pentecostal notions of the body. Pentecostalism is well known for overt bodily expressions that includes kinesthetic worship with emotive music and sustained acts of prayer. Among Pentecostals there is considerable debate about bodies, the role of the Holy Spirit, possession of evil spirits, deliverance, exorcism, revival, and healing of bodies and emotions. Pentecostalism is identified as a religion on the move and so bodies are transformed in the context of globalization. Pentecostalism is also associated with notions of sexuality, gender, race and class where bodies are often liberated and limited. This volume evaluates these themes associated with contemporary research on the body.

from colleagues and friends. From this list, four scientists selected roughly 50 films for close screening based on discreteness. That is, the movie had to include scenes that produced one dominant emotion (amusement, or fear) or no emotions at all. The list was further reduced to 18 movies (six

Emotion in Action: Thucydides and the Tragic Chorus offers a new approach to the tragic chorus by examining how certain choruses ‘act’ on their shared feelings. Eirene Visvardi redefines choral action, analyzes choruses that enact fear and pity, and juxtaposes them to the Athenian dêmos in Thucydides’ History. Considered together, these texts undermine the sharp divide between emotion and reason and address a preoccupation that emerges as central in Athenian life: how to channel the motivational power of collective emotion into judicious action and render it conducive to cohesion and collective prosperity. Through their performance of emotion, tragic choruses raise the question of which collective voices deserve a hearing in the institutions of the polis and suggest diverse ways to envision passionate judgment and action.

How can a historian gain access to the passions of the dead? 1 ⸪ Peter Burke’s question, first posed at the opening of a conference on ‘Representing Emotions’ in 2001, is one that preoccupies every historian of feeling, regardless of the historical period, region, social group or cultural

Adoption in Galatians and Romans

Contemporary Metaphor Theories and the Pauline Huiothesia Metaphors


Erin M. Heim

In a new study on the Pauline adoption metaphors, Erin Heim applies a wide array of contemporary theories of metaphor in a fresh exegesis of the four instances of adoption ( huiothesia) metaphors in Galatians and Romans. Though many investigations into biblical metaphors treat only their historical background, Heim argues that the meaning of a metaphor lies in the interanimation of a metaphor and the range of possible backgrounds it draws upon. Using insights from contemporary theories, Heim convincingly demonstrates that the Pauline adoption metaphors are instrumental in shaping the perceptions, emotions, and identity of Paul’s first-century audiences.
