G. R. Hawting and David Morgan (Series Editor), «The Idea of Idolatry and the Emergence of Islam : From Polemic to History (Cambridge Studies in Islamic Civilization)»

Cambridge University Press | 1999 Year | PDF | 1,01 Mb | 183 Pages

Why and under what circumstances did the religion of Islam emerge in a remote part of Arabia at the beginning of the seventh century? Traditional scholarship maintains that Islam developed in opposition to the idolatrous and polytheistic religion of the Arabs of Mecca and the surrounding regions. In the first book-length study of pre-Islamic Arabian religion, G. R. Hawting adopts a comparative religious perspective to suggest an alternative view. By examining the various bodies of evidence which survive from this period, the Koran and the vast resources of the Islamic tradition, the author argues that in fact Islam arose out of conflict with other monotheists whose beliefs and practices were judged to fall short of true monotheism and were, in consequence, attacked polemically as idolatry. The author is adept at unravelling the complexities of the source material, and students and scholars will find his argument both engaging and persuasive.

Adrian Davies and T. A. Davies, «The Quakers in English Society, 1655-1725 (Oxford Historical Monographs)»

Oxford University Press | 2000 Year | PDF | 0,93 Mb | 270 Pages

The early Quakers denounced the clergy and social elite but what of Friends' relationships with others? By examining Quaker attitudes to neighbourliness, the family, the rites of passage, business, and other links, this lively and original study demonstrates that Quakers were not the marginal and isolated people as often portrayed by contemporaries and historians, and explores the their wider and significant impact upon early modern society.

Louise A. Breen, «Transgressing the Bounds: Subversive Enterprises Among the Puritan Elite in Massachusetts, 1630-1692 (Religion in America)»

Oxford University Press | 2001 Year | PDF | 1,92 Mb | 301 Pages

This study offers an interpretation of the Puritan “Antinomian” controversy and an analysis of its wider and long-term social and cultural significance. Breen argues that the controversy both reflected and fostered larger questions of identity that would persist in Puritan New England throughout the 17th century: How much room for individualism among them of a more “cosmopolitan” nature? How did they respond to those who did not share their celebrated tolerance toward Quakers, Indians, and outside influences in general? Central to Breen's study is the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massuchusetts, a private military company modelled on the fashionable “artillery gardens” of London. Essentially an elite social club, this organization attracted a heterogeneous yet prominent membership whose diversity contrasted with the the social and religious ideals of the cultural majority.
