This volume attempst to summarise the history of the trials in a new way - according to the types of legal systems involved. It also examines the continued practical use made of magic, the elaboration of demonological theories about witchcraft and magic, and the further development of scientific interests in natural magic through the 'Neoplatonic' and 'Hermetic' period. Amongst the topics included here are superstition and belief in high and popular culture, the place of medicine, witchcraft survivals in art and literature, and the survival of persecution.

Journeys to the Spiritual Lands: The Natural History of a West Indian Religion
Publisher: Oxford University Press | pages: 256 | 1999 | ISBN: 0195128451 | PDF | 16,1 mb

Although much has been written on the Afro-Catholic syncretic religions of Vodou, Candomble, and Santeria, the Spiritual Baptists--an Afro-Caribbean religion based on Protestant Christianity--have received little attention. This work offers the first detailed examination of the Spiritual Baptists or "Converted". Based on 18 months of fieldwork on the Island of St. Vincent (where the religion arose) and among Vincentian immigrants in Brooklyn, Zane's analysis makes a contribution to the literature on African-American and African Diaspora religion and the anthropology of religion more generally.

In 2001 Thomson Gale had a simple but ambitious goal: to produce an encyclopedia outlining the contemporary religious practices of every country in the world—from the very largest, such as China, India, Brazil, and Russia, to the smallest, such as Tuvalu, Andorra, and Antigua and Barbuda. Because this information has not been readily available in books or other sources in libraries, as well as on the Internet, the project required years of planning and hard work by a large group of people: our distinguished board of 10 advisers, the 245 scholars and other subject specialists commissioned to write essays or to review the text of their colleagues, and the editorial staff of Thomson Gale. The result was this publication, the Worldmark Encyclopedia of Religious Practices. It joins an already existing series of Worldmark encyclopedias, including the Worldmark Encyclopedia of the Nations and the Worldmark Encyclopedia of Cultures and Daily Life.

The Original King James version is probably the most difficult version to understand and "stick with" My husband and I purchased this to listen to as we followed along reading our Bibles. I can not begin to tell you how we enjoy listening. The voices and command of this difficult speech..the names of all the Old Testament peoples. Well, our comment is "WOW"! Buy it, you will not be dissapointed. We have many of the other versions also. The NKJ, the NIV, etc. Our church uses the KJ and frowns on any other version so we just go along with them. It is word for word the KJ. The men and women who read, the background music and sounds are oh so well done and add so much. We have purchased 4 sets and will probably buy more for others. Enjoy!

Connecting with God: A Spiritual Formation Guide
Publisher: HarperOne | pages: 144 | 2006 | ISBN: 0060841230 | PDF | 10 mb

God has communicated with his people throughout the ages in many ways. Adam and Eve encountered him directly in the Garden of Eden, Teresa of Avila experienced him through visions, and Francis of Assisi heard his voice in nature. This book gives practical advice for connecting on a deeply personal level with God. It uncovers new places to look for God, while providing reflection questions and activities to reinvigorate communication with God in such traditional areas as prayer and Bible study. Divided into twelve chapters conveniently organized for individual or group study, each section explores a different area in which we can deepen our individual communion with God.

Die Kraft uralten Heilwissens des Westens nutzen

Der Autor entführt in das spannende Kapitel der Entstehung der Traditionellen Europäischen Medizin, die es an Bedeutung mit der Traditionellen Chinesischen Medizin und dem indischen Ayurveda durchaus aufnehmen kann. Zwei Säulen dieser Medizin sind das Heilwissen der Kräuterhexen und Mönche, das in diesem Buch erstmalig zueinander in Beziehung gesetzt und voneinander abgegrenzt wird. Hier wird vor allem die Bedeutung der Kräuterhexen als oft einzige Heilkundige für die breiten Volksschichten – über viele Jahrhunderte oder sogar Jahrtausende hinweg – herausgearbeitet und gewürdigt. Ihr Heilwissen und das der Mönche wird in zahlreichen Anwendungsvorschlägen und Rezepten modernen »Kräuterhexen« und allen an Naturheilkunde Interessierten zur Verfügung gestellt.
