With gifted professor, author, and contemplative retreat leader Fr. Donald Goergen, OP, as your guide, explore the spiritual insights of four great spiritual masters with this one-of-a-kind retreat experience. This 24-conference series is designed to capture your spiritual imagination and deepen your life with Christ. Deepen your Christian life with the guidance of four diverse yet complementary 20th-century spiritual masters: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Merton, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Blessed Pope John Paul II. Spend six conferences with each spiritual master. Each six-part series is grounded in themes and writings of that particular spiritual master and can be used as a retreat by itself. These four spiritual masters endured the cost of discipleship and became more conformed to Christ through their own distinctive callings. Teilhard was a scientist but also a mystic with a cosmic vision. Merton was perhaps the most prominent Catholic American spiritual writer of the 20th century. A monk and seeker, he was restless, deeply contemplative, socially conscious, and always writing. Mother Teresa's spirituality was oriented toward the poor. Acutely aware of the Gospel's commands, grounded in her commitment to Christ and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she saw herself as a mystic of darkness. The final mystic in the series is Pope John Paul II, who lived a providential life indeed. A defender of human dignity for all, he has become a symbol of hope, of the potential of the human spirit, and of the transformative power of grace. All four share these last qualities despite their different calls. Let these four spiritual masters accompany you and offer wise guidance in your journey to eternal life. 1. Language: English.

The frequently used term “classic”, which is of fundamental importance to literature and fine arts, is characterized both by extreme ambiguity and by long-time durability. One of its interpretations – namely “classical tradition” – as well as its functions and range of application are discussed in the conference papers collected in this book.The authors of “Blessed Heritage” analyze the reception and transformation of the models and patterns of classical tradition in Russian literature from the 17th to the 21st century in three dimensions: 1) the construction and specific features of the classical tradition of Russian literature from Simeon Polockij to Pushkin and Gogol, 2) the disintegration of classical tradition in Russian literature from the late 18th to the early 20th century, and 3) classical tradition in nonclassical culture. Texts in Russian and English.
This book explores why English Christians, from the early modern period onwards, believed that their nation had a special mission to restore the Jews to Palestine. It examines English support for Jewish restoration from the Whitehall Conference in 1655 through to public debates on the Jerusalem Bishopric in 1841. Rather than claiming to replace Israel as God's "elect nation", England was "chosen" to have a special, but inferior, relationship with the Jews. Believing that God "blessed those who bless" the Jewish people, this national role allowed England to atone for ill-treatment of Jews, read the confusing pathways of providence, and guarantee the nation's survival until Christ's return. This book analyses this mode of national identity construction and its implications for understanding Christian views of Jews, the self, and "the other". It offers a new understanding of national election, and of the relationship between apocalyptic prophecy and political action.
Recent years have been blessed with an abundance of logical systems, arising from a multitude of applications. A logic can be characterised in many different ways. Traditionally, a logic is presented via the following three components: 1. an intuitive non-formal motivation, perhaps tie it in to some application area 2. a semantical interpretation 3. a proof theoretical formulation. There are several types of proof theoretical methodologies, Hilbert style, Gentzen style, goal directed style, labelled deductive system style, and so on. The tableau methodology, invented in the 1950s by Beth and Hintikka and later per fected by Smullyan and Fitting, is today one of the most popular, since it appears to bring together the proof-theoretical and the semantical approaches to the pre of a logical system and is also very intuitive. In many universities it is sentation the style first taught to students. Recently interest in tableaux has become more widespread and a community crystallised around the subject. An annual tableaux conference is being held and proceedings are published. The present volume is a Handbook a/Tableaux pre senting to the community a wide coverage of tableaux systems for a variety of logics. It is written by active members of the community and brings the reader up to frontline research. It will be of interest to any formal logician from any area.
Katherine Roberts is fed up with men. As a lecturer specialising in the works of Jane Austen, she knows that the ideal man only exists within the pages of Pride & Prejudice and that in real life there is no such thing. Determined to go it alone, she finds all the comfort she needs reading her guilty pleasure - regency romances from the pen of Lorna Warwick - with whom she has now struck up an intimate correspondence. Austen fanatic, Robyn Love, is blessed with a name full of romance, but her love life is far from perfect. Stuck in a rut with a bonehead boyfriend, Jace, and a job she can do with her eyes shut - her life has hit a dead end. Robyn would love to escape from it all but wouldn't know where to start. They both decide to attend the annual Jane Austen Conference at sumptuous Purley Hall, overseen by the actress and national treasure, Dame Pamela Harcourt. Robyn is hoping to escape from Jace for the weekend and indulge in her passion for all things Austen. Katherine is hoping that Lorna Warwick will be in attendance and is desperate to meet her new best friend in the flesh. But nothing goes according to plan and Robyn is aghast when Jace insists on accompanying her, whilst Katherine is disappointed to learn that Lorna won't be coming. However, an Austen weekend wouldn't be the same without a little intrigue, and Robyn and Katherine are about to get much more than they bargained for. Because where Jane Austen is concerned, romance is never very far away!
