The Devil, like the poor, is always with us. Evil has been personified in every religion and culture, and Christianity in particular developed a highly graphic view of him from its earliest period. Sometimes grotesque, sometimes beautiful, sometimes threatening, sometimes seductively helpful, sometimes comical, Satan has played a variety of roles in human existence. Feared and frightening adversary of humankind during the Middle Ages, supposed master and friend of witches during the sixteenth century, and seducer of the devout during the seventeenth, he was gradually explained away as the nineteenth century started to lose its faith at home and export him in all his traditional aspects to the Empire. He made a startling and vicious come-back during the twentieth century as a focus of renewed admiration and even worship. This book follows the Devil through his various, sometimes surprising incarnations from the ancient world to the present, and shows that his reign is by no means over, even in the West.

"This book is the first English translation of The Mirror of Meanings, presented with a parallel critical text edition in Persian. Seyed-Gohrab's thorough introduction and comprehensive glossary of technical Sufi terms and A. Pourjavady's critical edition of the original Persian text together give ample background to and explanation of the figurative language of Sufism to make this work accessible to the nonspecialist. Students of Persian literature, Sufism, and spirituality have now access to the symbolic universe of the Persian and the Persian-inspired Islamic mysticism."--BOOK JACKET.

Fundamentalism And Gender

Fundamentalism, as the word implies, is about getting back to basics, and for Americans this has meant getting back to God's word as proclaimed in the Bible. Yet the issues that American fundamentalists have most hotly contested--abortion and the Equal Rights Amendment--have little to do with scripture per se. Why are these so central? Perhaps it is because the real fundamentals of fundamentalism are social, not textual. Fundamentalism often seems to be about "family values" and restoring women to their "proper place"--not just in America, but wherever the corrosive effects of secular modernity are felt.The purpose of this book is to examine the connection between fundamentalism and gender. In their introduction, John Hawley and Wayne Proudfoot plot the intellectual terrain. Then four specialists--Randall Balmer, Peter Awn, John Hawley, and Helen Hardacre--present case studies from Islam, Hinduism, the New Religions of Japan, and American Christianity. In response, Jay Harris and Karen McCarthy Brown come forth with diametrically opposite conclusions. Harris, working from a Jewish perspective, argues that fundamentalism makes no sense as a comparative category, especially in relation to gender. Brown on the contrary turns to depth psychology to show why fundamentalism is necessarily tied to a conservative ideology of gender.Here readers interested in women's issues, comparative religion, and global fundamentalism are given fresh perspectives on one of the most pressing debates of our time.

This book provides a "corrective" to the combination of prejudice, fear and suspicion which, in the author's view, too often influences Christian views of Islam and Muslim views of Christianity. This work is an attempt to show that some Muslims have approached Christian themes positively, providing an interpretation of Christianity from the point of view of notable Islamic voices, both past and present. Biblical, theological and political issues are addressed in the context of Muslim-Christian dialog.

On August 24-26, 2006, the department of Biblical Studies, Abo Akademi University (Finland), held a small conference on Rewritten Bible in Karkku (Finland). The aim of this conference was to map different scholarly interests in Rewritten Bible and boost research on it, in addition to developing a better methodological understanding of interpretive processes in rewritten biblical texts. Scholars who took part in this conference were specialists in different fields, for example, biblical studies, Jewish literature of the Second Temple period, rabbinic literature, early Christian literature, and Islamic literature.
