In the words of Samuel L.

      Workman originally conceived of The Year’s Work in Medievalism (YWiM) as a publishing venue not only for the Proceedings of the annual International Conference on Medievalism, but also for comprehensive field bibliographies, book reviews, and announcements of conferences and other events. However, it became mostly an outlet for shorter essays. Medieval literature is a broad subject, encompassing essentially all written works available in Europe and beyond during the Middle Ages (that is, the one thousand years from the fall of the Western Roman Empire ca. AD to the beginning of the Renaissance in the 14th, 15th or 16th century, depending on country). The literature of this time was composed of religious writings as well as.

      The book surveys medieval literature from both a critical and an historical standpoint. Medieval literature is increasingly seen as an area of intense specialism which is to be treated differently from other areas of English studies. In the second half medievalism is analyzed through case-studies from the Renaissance, the eighteenth century. Inspired by all of the end-of-the-year lists for this and that, particularly one in The Independent entitled “Professors at America’s elite colleges pick one book every student should read in ,” I decided to ask medievalists from around the world (and not only at “elite” colleges, whatever that means) to compile our own list of must-read medieval studies books for students.

Swinburne's Medievalism: A Study in Victorian Love Poetry 1st Edition by Antony H. Harrison (Author)Cited by: 5. That Swinburne conceived this book as one that would appeal especially to contemporary currents of interest in medievalism is clear from the title of the American edition, Laus Veneris and Other Poems, 2, which emphasizes as the volume's centerpiece a work that complexly and gracefully brings together Swinburne's historicist,[54/55] erotic.

Swinburne's intended audience for this book is the general public that 'have been led Swinburnes medievalism book journalists and broadcasters to believe that the existence of God is, intellectually, a lost cause and that religious faith is an entirely nonrational matter' (p.

Second Edition An Introduction to Confirmation Theory. Examines the medievalism in the poems by Algernon Swinburne which were included in his book 'Poems and Ballads, First Series.'

ne of Swinburne's earliest works about love is Rosamond, a drama in the Elizabethan style, but one that employs a medieval setting and real historical figures as hed inthis play is extra-ordinarily significant for the poet's future themes and artistic development.

Following Saul Kripke in his book Naming and Necessity (), a ‘rigid designator’ is a word which always refers to the same object in any possible world, whatever happens to that object.

Kripke believes that names are rigid designators: they refer to the same thing in every possible world. He contrasts them with ‘non-rigid designators.

And from a conceptual point of view, God's infinite possession of perfections is far more complex and troubling than is the finite possession thereof.

It was not for no reason that Swinburne felt a need to write a book entitled The Coherence of Theism. God's omni-properties are far more problematic and paradox-prone than are their finite counterparts.

Swinburne’s Theodicy [p. ] • Not pre-supposing the existence of God, but claiming that “if there is a God, it is to be expected that he would do certain things • “Of course thrills of pleasure and periods of contentment are good things,” but there are even greater things that God can give us, like responsibility.

Richard Granville Swinburne is a British philosopher. He is an Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford. Over the last 50 years Swinburne has been an influential proponent of philosophical arguments for the existence of God.

His philosophical contributions are primarily in the philosophy of religion and philosophy of science. He aroused much discussion with his early work in the philosophy of religion, a trilogy of books Alma mater: Exeter College, Oxford. The book is divided into two parts.

In the first part Swinburne, former Nolloth Professor of Philosophy of the Christian Religion at the University of Oxford, provides a number of rational arguments that “there is a moderate probability that there is a God of the kind worshiped by Christians, Jews, and Muslims.” Having set in place the.

It also shows that it is possible for a theist to accept evolution and Darwinism (1). Swinburne gave a clear, modern and general account of theism, accessible to a wider public. The term “medievalism” is sufficiently broad to describe the practices of a great number of different trends related to the Middle Ages in scholarship and popular culture, but also maddeningly vague for those who seek in it a clear definition.

The book surveys medieval literature from both a critical and an historical standpoint. Medieval literature is increasingly seen as an area of intense specialism which is to be treated differently from other areas of English Studies. The essays collected here try to overturn this perception in two.

A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger “London, Surrounded by ruthless courtiers, England’s young, still untested king, Richard II, is in mortal peril. Songs are heard across London said to originate from an ancient book that prophesies the end of England’s kings, and among the book’s predictions is Richard’s : Kristen Mcquinn.
