    H. J. Mozans (John Augustine Zahm, C.S.C.), John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Santiago Schnell
    Abstract:

    First published in 1913, John A. Zahm’s book—written using the pseudonym (and anagram) H.J. Mozans—is an account of women’s achievements in science from ancient Greece to the early twentieth century. It highlights the cultural arguments of the time about a woman’s “place” in science, and refutes those arguments by sharing examples of exceptional female scientists and describing the science of intellect. Though Zahm frequently frames women’s successes through the lens of early twentieth centur…

    In Creating Conversos, Roger Louis Martínez-Dávila skillfully unravels the complex story of Jews who converted to Catholicism in Spain between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, migrated to colonial Mexico and Bolivia during the conquest of the Americas, and assumed prominent church and government positions. Rather than acting as alienated and marginalized subjects, the conversos were able to craft new identities and strategies not just for survival but for prospering in the most adverse…

  • Author(s):
    Theodore Ziolkowski
    Abstract:

    In Uses and Abuses of Moses, Theodore Ziolkowski surveys the major literary treatments of the biblical figure of Moses since the Enlightenment. Beginning with the influential treatments by Schiller and Goethe, for whom Moses was, respectively, a member of a mystery cult and a violent murderer, Ziolkowski examines an impressive array of dramas, poems, operas, novels, and films to show the many ways in which the charismatic figure of Moses has been exploited—the “uses and abuses” of the title—t…

After the death of her father and mother, Margherita was raised by her brothers, including Cardinal Giacomo Colonna.

  • Author(s):
    Farrell O'Gorman
    Abstract:

    In Catholicism and American Borders in the Gothic Literary Imagination, Farrell O'Gorman presents the first study of the recurrent role of Catholicism in a Gothic tradition that is essential to the literature of the United States. In this tradition, Catholicism is depicted as threatening to break down borders separating American citizens—or some representative American—from a larger world beyond. While earlier studies of Catholicism in the American literary imagination have tended to high…
