The Triumph of Christianity: How a Forbidden Religion Swept the World by Bart D. Ehrman

English | February 13, 2018 | ISBN: 1501136704, ASIN: B071D426ZR | AZW3 | 352 pages | 1.4 MB

From the bestselling authority on early Christianity, the story of how Christianity grew from a religion of twenty or so peasants in rural Galilee to the dominant religion in the West in less than four hundred years.
Christianity didn’t have to become the dominant religion in the West. It easily could have remained a sect of Judaism fated to have the historical importance of the Sadducees or the Essenes. In The Triumph of Christianity, Bart Ehrman, a master explainer of Christian history, texts, and traditions, shows how a religion whose first believers were twenty or so illiterate day laborers in a remote part of the empire became the official religion of Rome, converting some thirty million people in just four centuries. The Triumph of Christianity combines deep knowledge and meticulous research in an eye-opening, immensely readable narrative that upends the way we think about the single most important cultural transformation our world has ever seen—one that revolutionized art, music, literature, philosophy, ethics, economics, and law.

Literature and Moral Economy in the Early Modern Atlantic: Elegant Sufficiencies by Hillary Eklund

English | May 19, 2015 | ISBN: 140946234X | EPUB | 242 pages | 3.6 MB

Grounded in the literary history of early modern England, this study explores the intersection of cultural attitudes and material practices that shape the acquisition, circulation, and consumption of resources at the turn of the seventeenth century. Considering a formally diverse and ideologically rich array of texts from the period – including drama, poetry, and prose, as well as travel narrative and early modern political and literary theory – this book shows how ideas about what is considered ‚enough‘ adapt to changing material conditions and how cultural forces shape those adaptations.
Literature and Moral Economy in the Early Modern Atlantic traces how early modern English authors improvised new models of sufficiency that pushed back the threshold of excess to the frontier of the known world itself. The book argues that standards of economic sufficiency as expressed through literature moved from subsistence toward the increasing pursuit of plenty through plunder, trade, and plantation. Author Hillary Eklund describes what it means to have enough in the moral economies of eating, travel, trade, land use and public policy.

English | October 1, 2003 | ISBN: 1550024647, 152523627X | EPUB | 336 pages | 2.9 MB

When sound arrived in Hollywood in the late 1920s, Canadians were already holding some of the most important roles in the motion picture industry. Louis B. Mayer, from New Brunswick, was boss at MGM; Jack Warner, from Ontario, was head of Warner Bros. Studio; and Mack Sennett, from Quebec, was still King of Comedy.
Canadians like Mary Pickford, Marie Dressler, and Norma Shearer moved easily from silents to talkies – this illustrious trio won the first three Academy Awards for Best Actress.
Canadians arriving in sunny California in the 1930s and 1940s were principally actors, including Yvonne de Carlo, Walter Pidgeon, Ruby Keeler, and many others. You will be amazed at the Canadian influence on Hollywood’s Golden Age.
