Law-Making and Local Normativities in Iberian Asia, 1500-1800
Volume Editor: Manuel Bastias Saavedra
Norms beyond Empire seeks to rethink the relationship between law and empire by emphasizing the role of local normative production. While European imperialism is often viewed as being able to shape colonial law and government to its image, this volume argues that early modern empires could never monolithically control how these processes unfolded. Examining the Iberian empires in Asia, it seeks to look at norms as a means of escaping the often too narrow concept of law and look beyond empire to highlight the ways in which law-making and local normativities frequently acted beyond colonial rule. The ten chapters explore normative production from this perspective by focusing on case studies from China, India, Japan, and the Philippines.

Contributors are: Manuel Bastias Saavedra, Marya Svetlana T. Camacho, Luisa Stella de Oliveira Coutinho Silva, Rômulo da Silva Ehalt, Patricia Souza de Faria, Fupeng Li, Miguel Rodrigues Lourenço, Abisai Perez Zamarripa, Marina Torres Trimállez, and Ângela Barreto Xavier.
Author: Graham Kings
The theological treasures gathered here show the intriguing coherence of an unfolding vision. Earthed in the ministry of a priest, missionary, academic theologian, and well-travelled bishop, the five settings provide 16 chapters written over 34 years in Kenya, Cambridge, Islington, Sherborne and Lambeth. Art, poetry and archives mingle with theology, history and spirituality. Memorable scenes include a Kenyan liturgy on the environment and Bishop Gitari’s preaching, the drama of worship on the streets of London, a Deuteronomic prequel to the Prodigal Son, flashes from the lives of Henry Martyn and Stephen Harding, the birth of South Sudan and the historic dialogue of John Stott and Basil Meeking.
Volume Editor: Jennifer Wasmuth
Der öffentliche Diskurs zeichnet sich gegenwärtig vielfach durch eine Verhärtung der Fronten und die mangelnde Bereitschaft aus, sich auf die Gegenposition einzulassen. Diese Tendenzen lassen sich auch im ökumenischen Kontext beobachten, und schnell ist hier wie dort der Fundamentalismus-Vorwurf zur Hand.
Was meint dieser Vorwurf genau? Gegen wen richtet er sich? Ist Fundamentalismus nur eine polemische Etikettierung von Positionen, die nicht der eigenen entsprechen? Oder lassen sich unter dem Begriff politische und religiöse Gruppierungen fassen, die eine klar erkennbare Agenda verfolgen? Diesen Fragen geht der vorliegende Sammelband nach, indem er in seinen Beiträgen auf die Begriffsgeschichte und die Bedeutung von „Fundamentalismus“ in verschiedenen geographischen, konfessionellen und religiösen Kontexten reflektiert.
Studies in Christian Mission Online is the e-book collection of the book series Studies in Christian Mission. This series contains scholarly monographs and edited volumes in the history of transcultural missionary movements from the sixteenth century onwards, Roman Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox and Evangelical/Pentecostal.
It particularly includes research that positions the study of so far unexplored episodes of mission within wider discussions of the social and cultural factors within missions, of colonialism and post-colonialism, of nationalism and transnationalism and of the tensions between localized and global forms of Christianity.

The book series can be viewed here.

The Yearbook of International Religious Demography presents an annual snapshot of the state of religious statistics around the world.

These data are collated and analyzed by research centers and scholars around the world. Large amounts of data appear in analyzed form in the World Religion Database (Brill), aiming at a researcher’s audience. The Yearbook presents data in sets tables and scholarly articles spanning social science, demography, history, and geography. Each issue offers findings, sources, methods, and implications surrounding international religious demography. Each year an assessment is made of new data made available since the previous issue of the yearbook.
Publication History and Catholic Missions in the Spanish World (Spain, New Spain, and the Philippines, 1597–1700)
In The Martyrs of Japan, Rady Roldán-Figueroa examines the role that Catholic missionary orders played in the dissemination of accounts of Christian martyrdom in Japan. The work combines several historiographical approaches, including publication history, history of missions, and “new” institutional history. The author offers an overarching portrayal of the writing, printing, and circulation of books of ‘Japano-martyrology.’
The book is organized into two parts. The first part, “Spirituality of Writing, Publication History, and Japano-martyrology,” addresses topics ranging from the historical background of Christianity in Japan to the publishers of Japano-martyrology. The second part, “Jesuits, Discalced Franciscans, and the Production of Japano-martyrology in the Early Modern Spanish World,” features closer analysis of selected works of Japano-martyrology by Jesuit and Discalced Franciscan writers.
Band 3: Bildkunst der Neuzeit
Mit dem auf vier Bände angelegten Werk wird erstmalig eine Ikonologie der christlichen Kunst im historischen Ablauf geschildert.
Die Neuzeit ist zum einen durch die Reformation gekennzeichnet, in deren Ergebnis mehrere Kirchentümer entstanden, die eine verschiedene Haltung zur christlichen Kunst zeigten. Zum anderen durch die sogenannte Säkularisierung, die schließlich die Kunst zu einer Gegenstandslosigkeit führte, die kaum noch christliche Aussagen ermöglichte. Die Reformation brachte Polemiken und Bekenntnisbilder hervor; die Gegenreformation antwortete vor allem mit einem verstärkten Kult Marias und deren Aufnahme in den Himmel. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit findet die barocke Emblematik und verwandte bildnerische Argumentationen. Die Romantik in ihrer christlichen Form war auch eine Reaktion auf die Säkularisierung und prägt die figürliche Kunst bis heute.
El uso teológico de metáforas de comer y beber
Author: Fernando Soler
Este libro presenta un estudio exhaustivo sobre el uso teológico de las metáforas de comer y beber en la obra de Orígenes de Alejandría, considerando sus nociones fi siológicas y técnicas exegéticas. Orígenes de Alejandría es uno de los teólogos más importantes del cristianismo temprano. Su teología tiene una coherencia y profundidad que ha establecido el estándar para varios temas, como la Trinidad, la Cristología y la antropología. A través de las metáforas, realiza dos tareas desafi antes: profundizar en el misterio de Dios y comunicarlo. En este libro, el autor estudia los usos teológicos de Orígenes de las metáforas del comer y el beber, incluyendo el texto de las recientemente publicadas "Homilías sobre los Salmos". Este estudio confi rma no sólo los aspectos clásicos de la teología de Orígenes, sino que también muestra nuevas perspectivas, especialmente sobre las relaciones intratrinitarias y la reciprocidad en la relación entre Dios y los seres humanos.
An Anglican Practical Theology of Interreligious Marriage
In Intimate Diversity Paul Smith explores theological implications of interreligious marriage. Taking a practical theology approach which begins with lived experience and works through a pastoral cycle involving interpretation, normative discussion and a pragmatic outcome, the book challenges the Church of England (or other denominations) fulfil three tasks: theological, pastoral and missional.

Paul Smith accepts the reality of marriage that involves couples from different religious traditions and proposes ways of justifying such marriage based on normative Christian traditions. He takes a broadly missional approach, advocating the positive role that the Church of England can play in fostering good interreligious relations in society whilst offering sympathetic pastoral support of couples who marry across religious divides.
