Ecocriticism And Christian Literary Scholarship, Timothy J. Burbery Jan 2012

Ecocriticism And Christian Literary Scholarship, Timothy J. Burbery

English Faculty Research

This essay presents a case for ecocriticism as a viable critical method for Christian scholars. It begins with an historical overview of the method, then examines common ground shared by ecocriticism and Christianity, including what amounts to a kind of critical realism, and the belief in the inherent goodness of creation. Two potential obstacles are then addressed by way of Lynn White, Jr.'s famous essay, "The Historical Roots of our Ecologic Crisis." These include the relationship of the Bible and the environment, and the charge of anthropocentrism. I believe White is partly right, but contend that neither objection is ...


Anti-Slavery And Church Schism Among Protestants In Antebellum Central Kentucky, Lance Justin Hale Jan 2012

Anti-Slavery And Church Schism Among Protestants In Antebellum Central Kentucky, Lance Justin Hale

Online Theses and Dissertations

This thesis is an examination of the effects of anti-slavery and church schism among Protestant Christians in the Bluegrass region of antebellum Kentucky. A variety of secondary and primary sources are utilized, including books and journal articles from current scholarship, journals kept by historical actors, books, letters, and articles, written during or some years after the time under consideration, as well as publications of churches and denominations.

Pastors, such as James Pendleton and Peter Cartwright, endeavored to keep Christianity vibrant and relevant ...


Old Rome Was I Now New Rome Shall Be Praised: Christianity And Classical Culture In The Roman Guidebook Tradition, Talia Di Manno Jan 2012

Old Rome Was I Now New Rome Shall Be Praised: Christianity And Classical Culture In The Roman Guidebook Tradition, Talia Di Manno

Religious Studies Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This thesis examines the relationship between classical culture and Christianity in Rome through the lens of medieval, Renaissance, and Counter Reformation guidebooks. I propose that guidebooks allowed authors and patrons to project a carefully constructed image of Rome, a construction influenced by the Church’s desire to authenticate its place in Europe by defining itself in relation to classical culture.

Augustine's Dystopia, Peter Iver Kaufman Jan 2012

Augustine's Dystopia, Peter Iver Kaufman

Jepson School of Leadership Studies articles, book chapters and other publications

By discussing several of the issues that complicated the Christian's cohabitation and political participation in "this wicked world," as Augustine saw them, the remainder of this contribution will garrison the ground we have gained collecting the bad news he conveyed in his city. We shall inquire whether the assorted "consolations" he enumerated compensated for the corruption. And we shall consider one reason he might have had for composing his tome as a massive disorienting device. Of course, certainty about authorial intent is impossible to pocket, yet one can make the case that Augustine dropped City of God into the ...
