Epistulae Ad Romanos Inchoata Expositio: Édition, Traduction Et Commentaire

Peu avant d'acceder a l'episcopat d'Hippone, en l'annee 395/96, Augustin entreprend un projet ambitieux de commentaire sur les epitres de saint Paul. Apres un commentaire succinct sur Galates, et un livre de << Questions >> sur Romains, il entame un commentaire a grande echelle sur Romains, qui devait rivaliser, voire surpasser, tout autre commentaire scripturaire jusqu'alors produit par l'Eglise latine. Cependant, comme il l'admet lui-meme, il se decourage devant l'ampleur de la tache, et abandonne son travail n'ayant commente que le premier paragraphe de Romains. Neanmoins, il decide que ce qu'il a ecrit merite d'etre conserve, et donne a son texte le nom d'Epistulae ad Romanos inchoata expositio (<< Commencement de commentaire sur l'epitre aux Romains >>).   Malgre sa brievete, cette Inchoata expositio revele toute la sagesse et l'imagination d'Augustin lecteur des Ecritures, et comporte dans sa partie finale un riche expose sur la nature du blaspheme contre l'Esprit Saint, qui serait, selon l'Evangile, le peche impardonnable.   Ce livre fournit une nouvelle edition critique de l'Inchoata expositio, accompagnee d'une traduction francaise et d'un commentaire detaille sur les aspects litteraires, historiques et theologiques de ce texte-cle pour le developpement de la pensee exegetique d'Augustin.

Playing for Their Lives: The Global El Sistema Movement for Social Change Through Music PDF Books

Playing for Their Lives: The Global El Sistema Movement for Social Change Through Music

In some of the bleakest corners of the world, an unprecedented movement is taking root. From the favelas of Brazil to the Maori villages in New Zealand, from occupied Palestine to South Central Los Angeles, musicians with strong social consciences are founding intensive orchestra programs for children in need. In this captivating and inspiring account, authors Tricia Tunstall and Eric Booth tell the remarkable story of the international El Sistema movement. A program that started over four decades ago with a handful of music students in a parking garage in Caracas, El Sistema has evolved into one of classical music's most vibrant new expressions and one of the world's most promising social initiatives. Now with more than 700,000 students in Venezuela, El Sistema's central message-that music can be a powerful tool for social change-has burst borders to grow in 64 countries (and that number increases steadily) across the globe. To discover what makes this movement successful across the radically different cultures that have embraced it, the authors traveled to 25 countries, where they discovered programs thriving even in communities ravaged by poverty, violence, or political unrest. At the heart of each program is a deep commitment to inclusivity. There are no auditions or entry costs, so El Sistema's doors are open to any child who wants to learn music-or simply needs a place to belong. While intensive music-making may seem an unlikely solution to intractable poverty, this book bears witness to a program that is producing tangible changes in the lives of children and their communities. The authors conclude with a compelling and practicable call to action, highlighting civic and corporate collaborations that have proven successful in communities around the world.

Islam and the Moral Economy: The Challenge of Capitalism PDF Books

Islam and the Moral Economy: The Challenge of Capitalism

How do modern Muslims adapt their traditions to engage with today's world? Charles Tripp's erudite and incisive book considers one of the most significant challenges faced by Muslims over the last sixty years: the challenge of capitalism. By reference to the works of noted Muslim scholars, the author shows how, faced by this challenge, these intellectuals devised a range of strategies which have enabled Muslims to remain true to their faith, whilst engaging effectively with a world not of their own making. The work is framed around the development of their ideas on Islamic socialism, economics and the rationale for Islamic banking. While some Muslims have resorted to confrontation or insularity to cope with the challenges of modernity, most have aspired to innovation and ingenuity in the search for compromise and interaction with global capitalism in the twenty-first century.

Beyond the Edge of the Sea: Sailing with Jason and the Argonauts, Ulysses, the Vikings, and Other Explorers of the Ancient World PDF Books

Beyond the Edge of the Sea: Sailing with Jason and the Argonauts, Ulysses, the Vikings, and Other Explorers of the Ancient World

The story of Jason and the Argonauts and Homer’s tales of Ulysses are among the greatest ancient epics, but are they merely nautical legends or true stories?

Mauricio Obregón has combed through classical texts, focusing on the smallest details, and with his intimate knowledge of historical navigation, brilliantly reenacts the voyages the ancient heroes actually traveled. Using the clues embedded in these epic tales, Obregón deftly argues that many of the legends are not merely fiction, but are, quite possibly, true adventures.
