...long awaited sequel to Warp and Weft ...journey now on the Silken Web where... ...the Wheel of the year has turned twice since Sybille disappeared mysteriously and the women charged with fi nding her have grown beyond recognition..., as has the group who gathered from all realms to help... ...Sam fl ew through the Aethers, unfettered, free of all human burden and pain. A cool, fragrant wind, ruffl ed long fl ight quills, all memory gone, of who or what she was, had been or ever would be, in that moment. Carried under a cloak of musky-sweet feathers; safe, a gentle recall emerged of warm arms and soft down. ...Then, something was pulling at her, tugging at her mind insistently; ‘Sam,’ she heard. ‘Sam, come back, it’s not your time to leave.’ ...An acrid odour seared her nostrils; offensive, as burnt feathers or hair and she fought to maintain her blissful fl ight away from the realms of pain and dark matters. ...A voice grew stronger, this one deeper, a masculine melodic tone; Morgan sang to her, calling her back... ‘Life is a struggle when we see through the veil... hands become fragile; skin fair and pale. Come home from the dreaming... come back to this place, now’s no time to travel, come home from this space. You are a dreamer, one who sees true... memories awaken ...feather’s blue-black hue. Free fl ying... falling... then higher you soar, come home from your dreaming... there is more... so much more.’ ...Come with them on the next stage of the search as Sam learns disturbing and heartbreaking things about her passage through the ‘Between’.

Precious Volumes

Author: Daniel L. Overmyer
Publisher: Harvard Univ Asia Center
ISBN: 067469838X
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Literary Collections

"Precious volumes," or pao-chuan, were produced by popular religious sects in the Ming and Ch'ing dynasties. These scriptures were believed to have been divinely revealed to sect leaders and contain teachings and ritual instructions that provide valuable information about a lively and widespread religious tradition outside the mainstream religious systems of Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. Proscribed by the Chinese state and largely neglected until now, they testify to the imagination and devotion of popular religious leaders. This book, the most detailed and comprehensive study of early pao-chuan in any language, studies 34 examples of this literature from the Ming and Ch'ing dynasties in order to understand the origins and development of this textual tradition.

Such a Dark Thing

Author: M. Jess Peacock
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
ISBN: 9781630878184
Release Date: 2015-02-05
Genre: Religion

Evil, death, demons, reanimation, and resurrection. While such topics are often reserved for the darker mindscapes of the vampire subgenre within popular culture, they are equally integral elements of religious history and belief. Despite the cultural shift of presenting vampires in a secular light, the traditional figure of the vampire within cinema and literature has a rich legacy of serving as a theological marker. Whether as a symbol of the allure of sin, as an apologetic for assorted religious icons, or as a gateway into a discussion of liberationist theology, the vampire has served as a spiritual touchstone from Bram Stoker's Dracula, to Stephen King's Salem's Lot, to the HBO television series True Blood. In Such a Dark Thing, Jess Peacock examines how the figure of the vampire is able to traverse and interconnect theology and academia within the larger popular culture in a compelling and engaging manner. The vampire straddles the ineffable chasm between life and death and speaks to the transcendent in all of us, tapping into our fundamental curiosity of what, if anything, exists beyond the mortal coil, giving us a glimpse into the interminable while maintaining a cultural currency that is never dead and buried.

Demonizing the Queen of Sheba

Author: Jacob Lassner
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226469158
Release Date: 1993-12-08
Genre: Religion

Over the centuries, Jewish and Muslim writers transformed the biblical Queen of Sheba from a clever, politically astute sovereign to a demonic force threatening the boundaries of gender. In this book, Jacob Lassner shows how successive retellings of the biblical story reveal anxieties about gender and illuminate the processes of cultural transmission. The Bible presents the Queen of Sheba's encounter with King Solomon as a diplomatic mission: the queen comes "to test him with hard questions," all of which he answers to her satisfaction; she then praises him and, after an exchange of gifts, returns to her own land. By the Middle Ages, Lassner demonstrates, the focus of the queen's visit had shifted from international to sexual politics. The queen was now portrayed as acting in open defiance of nature's equilibrium and God's design. In these retellings, the authors humbled the queen and thereby restored the world to its proper condition. Lassner also examines the Islamization of Jewish themes, using the dramatic accounts of Solomon and his female antagonist as a test case of how Jewish lore penetrated the literary imagination of Muslims. Demonizing the Queen of Sheba thus addresses not only specialists in Jewish and Islamic studies, but also those concerned with issues of cultural transmission and the role of gender in history.
