Mary and Early Christian Women: Hidden Leadership

by Ally Kateusz

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC-ND license.This book reveals exciting early Christian evidence that Mary was remembered as a powerful role model for women leaders—women apostles, baptizers, and presiders at the ritual meal.  Early Christian art portrays Mary and other women clergy serving as deacon, presbyter/priest, and bishop. In addition, the two oldest surviving artifacts to depict people at an altar table inside a real church depict women and men in a gender-parallel liturgy inside two of the most important churches in Christendom—Old Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the second Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. Dr. Kateusz’s research brings to light centuries of censorship, both ancient and modern, and debunks the modern imagination that from the beginning only men...

Ancient Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily in the J. Paul Getty Museum

by Maria Lucia Ferruzza

In the ancient world, terracotta sculpture was ubiquitous. Readily available and economical—unlike stone suitable for carving—clay allowed artisans to craft figures of remarkable variety and expressiveness. Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily attest to the prolific coroplastic workshops that supplied sacred and decorative images for sanctuaries, settlements, and cemeteries. Sixty terracottas are investigated here by noted scholar Maria Lucia Ferruzza, comprising a selection of significant types from the Getty’s larger collection—life-size sculptures, statuettes, heads and busts, altars, and decorative appliqués. In addition to the comprehensive catalogue entries, the publication includes a guide to the full collection of over one thousand other figurines and molds from the reg...

The Institution of Criticism

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

German radicals of the 1960s announced the death of literature. For them, literature both past and present, as well as conventional discussions of literary issues, had lost its meaning. In The Institution of Criticism, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores the implications of this crisis from a Marxist perspective and attempts to define the tasks and responsibilities of criticism in advanced capitalist societies. Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century. Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas's concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. The Institution of Criticism is made up of seven essays origina...

I See Nothing But the Horrors of a Civil War

by Alexander Cain

It is commonly stated history is written by the victor and the American Revolution is no exception. As a result of the rebel triumph in the War for Independence, loyalists historically have been placed in a negative light. In countless works and popular culture, loyalists have been portrayed as inept people whose blind faith to the English crown led to their downfall. Unfortunately, such an erroneous stereotype only trivializes the struggles of the American loyalist. In 2014, Author Alexander Cain released the first edition of "I See Nothing But the Horrors of a Civil War." Now, five years later, this acclaimed book has been rewritten to reflect the recent discovery of countless new historical documents, town records and historical artifacts. This is the story of the men, women and childre...

Why still secret? In 1941 the Deputy Fuhrer of Nazi Germany Rudolf Hess flies into the arms of his enemy with an olive branch. The Fuhrer Adolf Hitler is outraged - or is he? More than 70 years have passed but yet we still are not allowed to know 'why'. What is our 'establishment', the British Government, really hiding? They say in two years from now we will be told. Why do I doubt that? For once we don't need the lies and obfuscation that these 'new papers' will display. Black Dove will tell you why - and (if you're a patriot) it doesn't make for pleasant reading. Another futile 'warning from history' - but one must continue to try....
