Summary : The sixteen essays in this volume form a series of related focuses upon various levels and areas of literary criticism. W.K. Wimsatt's assumption is that practice and theory of both the past and the present are integrally related-that there is a continuity in the materials of criticism-that a person who studies poetry today has a critical concern, not merely a historical interest, in what Aristotle or Plato said about poetry. He regards the great perennial problems of criticism as arising not by the whim of a tolerantly pluralist choice, but from the nature of language and reality. With profound learning and insight, Wimsatt treats almost the whole range of literary criticism. The first group of essays deals with fallacies he believes are involved in prevalent approaches to the literary object. The next two groups face the responsibilities of the critic who defends literature as a form of knowledge; they treat various problems of structure and style. The last group undertakes to examine the relation of literature to other arts, the relation of evaluative criticism to historical studies, and the relation of literature not only to morals, but more broadly to the whole complex of the Christian religious tradition.

Summary : This lavishly illustrated guide to iconography explains through words and pictures the history, meaning, and purpose of Christian icons as well as the traditional methods that religious painters use to create these luminous, spiritually enlivened works of art. Solrunn Nes, one of Europe's most admired iconographers, illuminates the world of Christian icons, explaining the motifs, gestures, and colors common to these profound symbols of faith. Nes explores in depth a number of famous icons, including those of the Greater Feasts, the Mother of God, and a number of the better-known saints, enriching her discussion with references to Scripture, early Christian writings, and liturgy. She also leads readers through the process and techniques of icon painting, showing each step with photographs, and includes more than fifty of her own original works of art. Deeply inspiring and utterly unique, The Mystical Language of Icons will inform both those who are familiar with the rich tradition of religious art and those who are not. It also serves as a powerful devotional resource in its own right, one that Christians everywhere can turn to again and again. Book jacket.

Summary : This bilingual English-Chinese publication includes full color reproductions of icons in St. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, Hong Kong including Christ Pantocrator icon and the Albazinks Icon of the Theotokos "The Word made Flesh", which appear to the right and left of the Holy Doors of the iconostasis. Reflecting the local character of the parish, the typical Greek or Slavonic inscriptions on the icons also are accompanied by parallel inscriptions in Chinese. The publication consists of a reprint with minor ammendments of the English original version of "The Icon, History, Symbolism and Meaning" which was first published by Dormition of the Theotokos Monastery in their monastic journal, Winter, 2003 Vol. 16 #2. Now published for the first time with a Chinese translation with the kind blessing of the Abbess of the monastery, Mother Gabriella. The publication of the Chinese translation has been made possible with the efforts of Mr. Daniel Yeung of Institute of Sino-Christian Studies and the liaison work amongst other endeavors of Prof. Xu Fenglin. We also extend our appreciation to translator Mr. Hou Jianyu and proofreader Ms. Zhang Guina, for their time and energy spent on the text. 這本中英雙語的出版物包含了香港聖彼得聖保羅教堂所有聖像的彩色複製版,包括聖像屏君王門右邊和左邊的基督全能像和阿爾巴金聖母像「道成肉身」。考慮到堂區的地方性,聖像上除了傳統的希臘或斯拉夫落款外還寫有漢字。本書是英文版「聖像的歷史、象徵和意義」(出版于聖母安息修道院的雜誌,2003年冬 Vol. 16 #2)一書的輕微修訂版。在修道院院長加弗里拉(Gabriella)姆姆的祝福下,我們首次出版了本書的中文版。本書得以出版還得益于漢語基督教文化研究所的丹尼爾·楊先生的努力和徐鳳林教授的聯絡工作。同時我們也想對譯者候健羽先生和張桂娜女士表示感謝,他們為本書的出版奉獻了時間與精力。

Summary : "Leonid Ouspensky (1902-1987) settled in France following the Russian Revolution and worked as a talented but struggling commercial painter prior to discovering the icon, which became his life's work. Orthodox iconography had been in full decline since the seventeenth century, and Ouspensky set out to recover the genuine sources of Eastern Christian art and to recover the Tradition that had spawned them." "In this work, Schemamonk Patrick Doolan, a pupil of Ouspensky, has chosen and commented on more than 100 of Ouspensky's representative works. Icons, and sculptures and wood and stone as well as pressed metal, are included, giving us a broad range of the talent of this masterful teacher."--BOOK JACKET.

Summary : Icons of Power investigates why the image of the cat has been such a potent symbol in the art, religion and mythology of indigenous American cultures for three thousand years. The jaguar and the puma epitomize ideas of sacrifice, cannibalism, war, and status in a startling array of graphic and enduring images. Natural and supernatural felines inhabit a shape-shifting world of sorcery and spiritual power, revealing the shamanic nature of Amerindian world views. This pioneering collection offers a unique pan-American assessment of the feline icon through the diversity of cultural interpretations, but also striking parallels in its associations with hunters, warriors, kingship, fertility, and the sacred nature of political power. Evidence is drawn from the pre-Columbian Aztec and Maya of Mexico, Peruvian, and Panamanian civilizations, through recent pueblo and Iroquois cultures of North America, to current Amazonian and Andean societies. This well-illustrated volume is essential reading for all who are interested in the symbolic construction of animal icons, their variable meanings, and their place in a natural world conceived through the lens of culture. The cross-disciplinary approach embraces archaeology, anthropology, and art history.
