Benedict Xiv And The Enlightenment from the Author: Rebecca Messbarger. Pope Benedict XIV Lambertini (r. 1740–58) was one of the driving forces behind the Italian Enlightenment of the eighteenth century. His campaign to reconcile faith and empirical science, re-launch a dialogue between the Church and the European intellectual community, and expand papal patronage of the arts and sciences helped restore Italy’s position as a center of intellectual and artistic innovation. Benedict XIV and the Enlightenment offers a broad and nuanced assessment of Benedict’s engagement with Enlightenment art, science, spirituality, and culture. The collection’s essays, written by international experts in the field, cover topics ranging from Benedict’s revisions to the Church’s procedures for beatification and sanctification to his patronage of women scientists and mathematicians at the university in Bologna, his birthplace.

States Of Apology from the Author: Michael Cunningham. This book contains a critical consideration of the apology in politics. It provides a detailed overview of all aspects of the phenomenon of the apology made by states, a phenomenon that increased significantly from the mid-1980s. It is the product of a decade's research and reflection on the subject and thus provides an overview of all the key debates and issues.These aspects include a consideration of the relationship between the personal apology and the apology in politics, the political and cultural factors behind its emergence and the philosophical problems generated by the state apologizing and in particular the question of responsibility across generations. Also considered are the dynamics of domestic apologies and the relationship of the apology to the field of international relations. The book will appeal to readers beyond the apology itself because the apology is related to, and part of, a wider trend of interest in reconciliation, transitional justice and the importance of memory in history and the construction of identity. These are areas that cut across disciplines and inform those of politics, sociology, philosophy, history, theology and conflict resolution. Although the book deals with philosophical and political concepts, it is written in a clear and jargon-free style which makes it accessible to undergraduates in the disciplines outlined and also to readers beyond the academy.

The Rhetoric Of Pope John Paul Ii from the Author: Joseph R. Blaney. Pope John Paul II was clearly one of the most influential persons of the 20th Century. He affected the world of politics, religion, and culture with a rhetorical zeal unmatched by few actors on the international stage. From the downfall of communism in Eastern Europe to his devotion to Mary to his championing of social justice and orthodox theology, this book examines his several moments of persuasive finesse as well as instances when his message could have been crafted more effectively. The essays in this collection examine his persuasive skills from several scholarly points of view. The book also offers analyses of media portrayals of this often-controversial figure. With contributions from some of the world's leading communication scholars, clergy, and social activists, this book is must reading for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of religious communication in general and John Paul II's rhetorical papacy in particular. Written by Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, agnostics, and atheists, the chapters approach the Pope with varying degrees of admiration, but always with intellectual respect.
