Through these collaborations, the Press extends the reach and reputation of the University while fulfilling its mission to advance intellectual exploration and knowledge.

  • Author(s):
    Charles Trinkaus
    Abstract:

    Now combined into one volume.

    In this massive, meticulously researched work Trinkaus makes a major contribution to our understanding of the Italian humanists and the Christian Renaissance in Italy… .

It is a mine of information, offering, among other thin…

    María Antonia Garcés
    Abstract:

    An Early Modern Dialogue with Islam: Antonio de Sosa ‘s Topography of Algiers (1612) makes available in translation a riveting sixteenth-century chronicle of European and North African cultural contacts that is virtually unknown to English-speaking readers. The Topography was written by a Portuguese cleric, Doctor Antonio de Sosa, who was captured by Algerian corsairs in 1577 and held as a Barbary slave for over four years while awaiting ransom. Sosa’s work is a fascinating descri…

    George Heffernan
    Abstract:

    No text has defined the self-understanding of the present time like Jean-François Lyotard ‘s La condition postmoderne, Rapport sur le savoir (1979). But few participants in the dialogue between the moderns and the postmoderns can claim to understand exactly what “modernity” is. Yet one can hardly understand “post-modernism” without adequately understanding what it is supposed to supersede. Thus there also arises one of the biggest difficulties in understanding post…

  • Author(s):
    Richard D. McCall
    Abstract:

    Dramatic elements have always been apparent in the historic Christian liturgy. Because the liturgy is a structured action and not merely a verbal narrative, it has historically been both illuminated by and confused with other types of performance, such as theatre and drama. This confusion has been compounded by the fact that much analysis of liturgy has focused on the linguistic and theological aspects of the event and not on its elements of performance.

    Joseph Dane
    Abstract:

    Joseph A. Dane ‘s What Is a Book? is an introduction to the study of books produced during the period of the hand press, dating from around 1450 through 1800.

  • Author(s):
    John T. Noonan
    Abstract:

    Using concrete examples, John T. Noonan, Jr., demonstrates that the moral teaching of the Catholic Church has changed and continues to change without abandoning its foundational commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Specifically, Noonan looks at the profound changes that have occurred over the centuries in Catholic moral teaching on freedom of conscience, lending for a profit, and slavery. He also offers a close examination of the change now in progress concerning divorce. In these change…

  • Author(s):
    David W. Fagerberg
    Abstract:

    English writer Gilbert Keith Chesterton was widely known not only for his newspaper columns, novels, poetry, plays, and detective stories, but also for his theological and Catholic apologetical works. This celebration of Chesterton’s passion for his faith builds on his own words to reveal the Catholic paradox he was so fond of exploring and which he articulated with zeal, wit, and total lack of animosity. David W. Fagerberg draws on Chesterton’s theological writings - avoiding secon…

    Abstract:

    Managing As If Faith Mattered, the inaugural volume in the Catholic Social Tradition series, defines the proposed thrust of the new series: to study the very best of what the Catholic social tradition has to offer in response to the pressing issues and problems of our times. Challenging the often-held double standard of private and public moralities, authors Helen Alford and Michael Naughton bridge the fault line between work and faith by engaging current management issues with that traditi…

  • Author(s):
    Kevin Healy
    Abstract:

    Bolivia, like most developing countries around the world, strove for decades to imitate Western and particularly U.S. methods of development, importing the latest technologies, institutions, crops, and livestock. Finally, beginning in the 1970s, faced with many striking instances of failure in the application of the North American modernization paradigm, diverse sectors of Bolivian civil society turned inward to rediscover their country’s own multicultural identities and agrarian wisdom a…

  • Author(s):
    Richard J. Mouw
    Abstract:

    In this book Richard J. Mouw, one of the foremost thinkers in the field of Christian ethics, develops a constructive theological ethic, employing primarily Calvinist themes. Exploring issues that are at the intersection of philosophical and theological discussions, he sets forth an ethical perspective in which obedience to divine commands occupies a central place.

    After responding to some secularist objections to divine command theory, Mouw looks at the ways in which treatments of divine au…
