Abi of Cyrene

by Mary Lou Cheatham

In the Bible this character has no name, but we know who she is. In the last chapter of Romans, the Apostle Paul sends her a greeting because he loves her like his own mother. Simon, her husband, is the last person who performs an act of kindness for Christ before the crucifixion. Her two sons, Alexander and Rufus, appear to be leaders in the early church. It seems she spends her later years in Antioch, home of the first people called Christians.

History has remained silent about this astonishing woman. Abi of Cyrene, an imaginative novel about Simon’s wife, uncovers her life as it might have been.

Before moving to Cyrene, she is a young Nubian archer, living near the Nile in the ancient land of Nobatia. The name Abi, meaning her father, alludes to her great...

Bread and Circuses: Theories of Mass Culture As Social Decay

by Patrick Brantlinger

Lively and well written, Bread and Circuses analyzes theories that have treated mass culture as either a symptom or a cause of social decadence. Discussing many of the most influential and representative theories of mass culture, it ranges widely from Greek and Roman origins, through Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Ortega y Gasset, T. S. Eliot, and the theorists of the Frankfurt Institute, down to Marshall McLuhan and Daniel Bell. Brantlinger considers the many versions of negative classicism and shows how the belief in the historical inevitability of social decay—a belief today perpetuated by the mass media themselves—has become the dominant view of mass culture in our time. While not defending mass culture in its present form, Brantlinger argues that the view of culture implicit in negative ...

Sons of God Daughters of Men

by Edward Malkowski

Sons of God – Daughters of Men is a history book written for a general audience. It inherits it’s title from the peculiar introduction to the story of Noah’s flood, in the 6th chapter of the biblical Genesis, where the "sons of God" saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and took them as wives. There, they are described as "heroes of old" and "men of renown", supposedly at a time when mankind was just created, eight generations before Noah.
This rather eerie reference to seemingly divine men has been, for myself, a continuous source of curiosity. If they were so famous, why then are there no other writings of their acts and deeds? And why were their offspring and descendents referred to as giants? Never having obtained a plausible answer from anyone, I contend that someth...

Stories about Human History (Extended edition): Travels on the history of mankind

by Sarah B. Williams

This is an extended edition of the book. In it we will get acquainted with the ancient Sumerians, learn about the secrets of Atlantis and try to understand the ancient technologies.The version of ancient and medieval history known to us today is not a self-evident thing. It is the result of the painstaking work of medieval historians who tried to restore the true picture of the past. However, the scheme created by them is by no means indisputable. At the same time, the majority of our contemporaries, brought up at school and university history courses, are convinced that the restoration of past events is not difficult in principle.Every day brings scientific sensations that contradict our ideas about life. Recent archaeological finds refute history books. The latest discoveries of astronom...

The Medieval Mind - Volume I of II

by Henry Taylor

The Middle Ages! They seem so far away; intellectually so preposterous, spiritually so strange. Bits of them may touch our sympathy, please our taste; their window-glass, their sculpture, certain of their stories, their romances,—as if those straitened ages really were the time of romance, which they were not, God knows, in the sense commonly taken. Yet perhaps they were such intellectually, or at least spiritually. Their terra—not for them incognita, though full of mystery and pall and vaguer glory—was not the earth. It was the land of metaphysical construction and the land of spiritual passion. There lay their romance, thither pointed their veriest thinking, thither drew their utter yearning.Is it possible that the Middle Ages should speak to us, as through a common humanity? The...

by Julie Johnson

#1 BEST SELLER IN HUMOROUS FICTION!

Gemma Summers is unlucky in love.
She’s known it since third grade, when her first crush blew a spitball into her hair, and a decade-long string of bad dates, boring sex, and abysmal morning-afters has done nothing to improve her prospects.

The Great Sieges of History

by William Robson

It is more than curious, it is wonderful, to observe how many sieges will be found in this volume, whose fate has been decided by means with which the art of war, as taught in the schools, had nothing to do; and it is always the captain of the greatest genius who seizes upon every unforeseen discovery, any extraordinary accident, any suddenly-perceived natural advantage, to defeat the best-concerted and most scientific plans of his adversary: in one instance the fortune of an assault is changed by suspending a pig over the walls by a string fastened to his leg.To induce students of the military art to read this work, I shall satisfy myself with relating one fact. When Prince Eugene was before Belgrade, he was surprised by the appearance of an immense Turkish host in his rear, which commenc...

The Devils Door - Part 3: The Cult of the Dead. Many ancient churches are surrounded by graves. Early Pagan communities buried select people in places ... ward off evil spirits. (THE DEVILS’ DOOR)

by Keith Sisman

Many churches, like this one in Upton, Cambridgeshire, are surrounded by the dead. Early communities held that spirits from bad people would walk the Earth forever, in a sort of Pagan Purgatory, hurting the living. Thus these ghosts were feared, and Propitiation made. The good spirits from good people were to be encouraged, hence the dedicating of churches to dead saints on consecrated ground - the Cult of the Dead...

My Family's Survival: The true story of how the Shwartz family escaped the Nazis and survived the Holocaust

by Aviva Gat

For the Shwartz family, survival was the only option. Their will to live, and a bit a luck, kept the family safe during the Holocaust, bringing them across Eastern Europe all the way to Israel.In 1937, the Shwartz family lived a calm life in their small village in Poland. Fifteen-year-old Rachel liked to sing and go out dancing at a local night club, while her older brother David was busy running a farm and raising a family with his wife Hinda. But all that changed when the war reached Butla.First, the Russians came and kicked them out of their house. Then, the Nazis came to cart them off. But the Shwartz family resisted. David decided that no matter what, his family would not be taken captive. Instead, he snuck his family out of their village, through a large forest, and into Hungary, a p...

Imperial Matter: Ancient Persia and the Archaeology of Empires

by Lori Khatchadourian

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s new open access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. What is the role of the material world in shaping the tensions and paradoxes of imperial sovereignty? Scholars have long shed light on the complex processes of conquest, extraction, and colonialism under imperial rule. But imperialism has usually been cast as an exclusively human drama, one in which the world of matter does not play an active role. Lori Khatchadourian argues instead that things—from everyday objects to monumental buildings—profoundly shape social and political life under empire. Out of the archaeology of ancient Persia and the South Caucasus, Imperial Matter advances powerful new analytical ...

Courage

by Anthony Vincent Bruno

1 John 3:16 - By this we know what love is: Jesus laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.The Holocaust and the Soviet Union's persecution of anyone opposed to Communism are two of the most sickening crimes ever inflicted upon the human race. What happened to the Christian Church during these genocides? When Nazi tanks rolled over the Polish border in 1939, the clergy were marked for death. The lucky ones were shot immediately; unfortunately, thousands were sent to camps where they were starved, abused or experimented upon. Stalin and his successors viewed Christians as a threat to communist ideology. Men and women were executed or sent to gulags where their sentences could be doubled on the most tenuous of excuses. Nazism and the Soviet Union are gon...
