He observes that manycontemporary readings of Jesus

Abstract

This is the moving and improbable story of Claire Ferchaud, a young French shepherdess who had visions of Jesus and gained national fame as a modern-day Joan of Arc at the height of World War I. Claire experienced her first vision after a childhood trauma in which her mother locked her in a closet to break her stubborn willfulness. She developed her visionary gifts with the aid of spiritual directors and, by the age of twenty, she had come to believe that Jesus wanted France consecrated to the Sacred Heart. Claire believed that if France undertook this devotion, symbolized by adding the image

Abstract

For many believers today the doctrines of Atonement, Christology and the Trinity seem like puzzling constructions produced by academic theologians. They are cast in unintelligible forms of thought derived from Platonism or from feudal society, and for many their existential relevance for life today remains unclear. This book introduces these doctrines and proposes a reinterpretation in the light of the claim of many Christian mystics that ultimate happiness is to be found in enjoying the loving fellowship of God. This claim is a 'matrix of faith' in terms of which these doctrines are shown to

Abstract

Devotion to the saints played a crucial role in the religious life of the Middle Ages. Kings and queens, merchants and craftsmen, beggars and thieves – all were alike in drawing inspiration, reassurance, and solace from the lives of holy martyrs and pious confessors. Saints were much loved because they held a unique position in the hierarchy of Heaven; they had the power to intercede directly with God on behalf of the living. Familiar though many saints may be, some elements of their history are not immediately obvious. How does one become a saint? Who were the first saints? Why was the devotion to saints so passionate? Why did certain individuals, professions, towns, and countries adopt particular saints as their patrons? Why were a saint’s relics so important and why were pilgrimages to their shrines so important? In Saints in Medieval Manuscripts, Greg Buzwell documents how saints were represented in the manuscripts of the Middle Ages. He focuses on those saints whose cults were based in the Latin West, including the well known, like St Sebastian and St George, as well as many less familiar ones. The book is beautifully illustrated with examples taken primarily from the British Library’s collection of medieval western manuscripts. Buzwell also discusses the particular nature of these manuscripts and their importance in medieval religious life.
