Jewish Perspective, Asher Finkel Nov 2005

Jewish Perspective, Asher Finkel

Rabbi Asher Finkel, Ph.D.

Almost two millennia of confrontation, vilification and recrimination marked the relationship of the offspring Christianity and its mother religion, Judaism from the first century. Now, a new chapter of the encounter has opened since Vatican II with a papal declaration on the relation of the Church to Judaism and to non-Christian religions. A meaningful dialogue of mutual respect was pursued that led to the apologetic reconciliation and positive reorientation to the common Biblical tradition of Jews and Christians. The encounter has now changed from past relationship of disputation and intolerance to seeking understanding from the ground of faith in canonical ...

Riding Waves Of Liturgical Change, Vaughan S. Roberts Aug 2005

Riding Waves Of Liturgical Change, Vaughan S. Roberts

Vaughan S Roberts

Following publication of ‘Water as an implicit metaphor for organizational change within the Church’ (2002), I was asked to present those ideas at a conference on ministerial leadership and then invited the following year to offer thoughts about the implications of this approach for practical church ministry. These further reflections were published as this chapter in 'How to be a Creative Church Leader'.

“Double Or Phantom?: Transgenerational Haunting In Mary Shelley’S Frankenstein”, Boyd J. Petersen Aug 2005

“Double Or Phantom?: Transgenerational Haunting In Mary Shelley’S Frankenstein”, Boyd J. Petersen

Boyd J Petersen

The psychoanalitical theories of Nicholas Abraham and Maria Torok offer a new interpretive lens through which to consider Frankenstein's monster: as a psychic manifestation of trauma--both that which Victor Frankenstein has inherited from his parents and that which the text inherited from its parent, Mary Shelley.

Interlinking Of Rivers In India , Pankaj Singh, Dharamveer Singh Chauhan Jun 2005

Interlinking Of Rivers In India , Pankaj Singh, Dharamveer Singh Chauhan

Pankaj Singh

Interlinking of major rivers in India, aimed at modifying the acute spatial inequity in the availability of water resources in India, has its origin in the ideas of K.L.Rao and Captain Dastur, in the form of Ganga-Cauvery Link Canal and the Garland Canal respectively. Both these ideas were considered to be mere dreams and not feasible projects by the Ministry of Water Resources. In recent years, the National Water Development Agency (NWDA) has come up with a proposal for a set of inter-basin transfer canals. The Supreme Court has asked that these projects of inter-basin transfers be completed ...

The Prudent Village: Risk Pooling Institutions In Medieval English Agriculture, Gary Richardson May 2005

The Prudent Village: Risk Pooling Institutions In Medieval English Agriculture, Gary Richardson

Gary Richardson

The prudent peasant mitigated the risk of crop failures by scattering his arable land throughout his village, Deirdre McCloskey argued, because alternative risksharing institutions did not exist. But, alternatives did exist, this essay concludes. Medieval English peasants formed two types of farmers’ cooperatives. Fraternities protected members from the perils of everyday life. Customary poor laws redistributed resources towards villagers beset by bad luck. In both institutions, the expectation of reciprocation motivated farmers with surpluses to aid neighbors with shortages.


Tribulations Of The Patriarch Joseph And Jesus In Greek And Latin Piety, Lawrence E. Frizzell May 2005

Tribulations Of The Patriarch Joseph And Jesus In Greek And Latin Piety, Lawrence E. Frizzell

Reverend Lawrence E. Frizzell, S.T.L., S.S.L., D.Phil.

The dramatic account of Joseph and his brothers in Genesis 37-50 has been the subject of many commentaries and reflections, by both Jews and Christians. How have the questions of crime and forgiveness been treated as a major theme by Christians? From early texts the pious effort to interpret the biblical message into a coherent whole led to a link between Joseph and Jesus. How has this been developed in the first millennium of Christianity? Father Frizzell examined this theme in “Tribulations of the Patriarch Joseph and Jesus in Greek and Latin Piety,” which he originally presented at the Medieval ...

Temple And Jerusalem In Jewish Life Of The Medieval Diaspora, Asher Finkel

Rabbi Asher Finkel, Ph.D.

This paper examines the importance of the Temple in Jewish tradition and the presence of Jews and their rabbinic leaders in Jerusalem throughout the Middle Ages. The paper was presented at the 40th International Conference on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University on May 6, 2005.


Christianity And Craft Guilds In Late Medieval England: A Rational Choice Analysis, Gary Richardson Apr 2005

Christianity And Craft Guilds In Late Medieval England: A Rational Choice Analysis, Gary Richardson

Gary Richardson

In late-medieval England, craft guilds simultaneously pursued piety and profit. Why did guilds pursue those seemingly unrelated goals? What were the consequences of that combination? Theories of organizational behavior answer those questions. Craft guilds combined spiritual and occupational endeavors because the former facilitated the success of the latter and vice versa. The reciprocal nature of this relationship linked the ability of guilds to attain spiritual and occupational goals. This link between religion and economics at the local level connected religious and economic trends in the wider world.

Practicing The Order Of Widows: A New Call For An Old Vocation, M. Therese Lysaught Mar 2005

Practicing The Order Of Widows: A New Call For An Old Vocation, M. Therese Lysaught

M. Therese Lysaught

This essay argues for a renewed institution of an ancient Christian practice, the Order of Widows. Drawing on the Roman Catholic tradition's recent writings on the elderly, particularly the 1998 document from the Pontifical Council for the Laity entitled “The Dignity of Older People and their Mission in the Church and in the World,” I argue that we find within the Roman Catholic tradition advocacy for a renewed understanding of the vocation of the elderly within the Church. Building on this, I then trace in the broadest of outlines some elements of what a renewal of the Order of ...

Sex Selection & Pre Birth Elimination Of Girl Child, Professor Vibhuti Patel Mar 2005

Sex Selection & Pre Birth Elimination Of Girl Child, Professor Vibhuti Patel

Professor Vibhuti Patel

Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act was enacted in 1994 as a result of pressure created by Forum Against Sex-determination and Sex –preselection. But it was not implemented. After another decade of campaigning by women’s rights organisations and public interest litigation filed by CEHAT, MASUM and Dr. Sabu George, The Pre-natal Diagnostics Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Amendment Act, 2002 received the assent of the President of India on 17-1-2003. The Act provides “for the prohibition of sex selection, before or after conception, and for regulation of pre-natal diagnostic techniques for the purposes of detecting genetic abnormalities or metabolic disorders ...
