BROWN, P.,
Authority and the Sacred. Aspects of the Christianisation of the Roman World.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1997. 91p. Paperback. Pages a bit yellowed, due to paper quality. Series: Canto. ?The first chapter is devoted to an analysis of the dominant narrative of Christianization that circulated widely in Christian circles in the fourth and fifth centuries and that has been repeated, mutatatis mutantis, by many modern historians. (?) Yet, in the Western parts of the empire an alternative narrative was in the process of being constructed by Augustine and a generation of mainly Latin writers; ?the dark counterpoint to the triumphant narrative that circulated in other circles? (pp.22-23). A myth of the ?decline of the Church? was created and employed by these Christian critics (?.). In the second (?) essay Brown seeks to weaken the persuasive power of the narrative of Christianization generated by Christians and pagans alike, to wit, the unholy alliance between authoritarian legislation and a triumphant groundswell of Christian intolerance. (?) In the final essay, Brown revisits familial territory - the ?Lives' of the Christian holy men (?). Here Brown seeks to explain their overall significance for contemporaries and their relative importance in relation to other forms of religious activity. Once again Brown places the evidence in a bride social and religious frame, to recover the story that the ?Lives? were written, in large part, to eclipse. The holy men emerged not as champions of a triumphant and intransigent faith, but as brokers of religious authority, ?arbiters of the holy?, and as low-key facilitators for the creation of new religious allegiances and of new religious patterns of observance. (?) specific aspects of Brown?s analysis might be challenged (?) or pursued further, but the broad outline is persuasive.? (A.J. DROGE in History of Religions, 1998, pp.275-77).

"The Faded Sun trilogy is the principal account of the Mri Wars era of Cherryh's Alliance-Union universe. At the beginning of the first volume, the regul have just concluded a forty-year war with humanity. As part of the peace, they are ceding the desert world of Kesrith to humanity. However, they have neglected to inform its inhabitants, the mri, who have served them as mercenaries for over two thousand years. The Mri have been nearly exterminated in these wars, and young Niun is one of the few remaining warriors. When the regul seek to double-cross his people, he and his sister Melein, the last of the priestly Sen caste, form an uneasy alliance with the human Sten Duncan to rescue a holy relic that may hold the key to the Mri's survival." ; Vol. 2.

9780745316918 John K. Cooley, Unholy Wars. Afghanistan, America and International terrorism
John K. Cooley
Unholy Wars. Afghanistan, America and International terrorism
Pluto Press, 2000. Paperback. Pp: 299. To oppose the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, the USA formed an extraordinary anti-communist alliance with militant Islamic forces in South Asia. In this controversial book, John Cooley provides a behind-the-scenes account of this alliance and of how the CIA planned and ran the holy war in Afghanistan. In this edition Cooley brings the subject up to date with a description of the Bin Laden-linked terrorist conspiracy network uncovered in the US and Canada since December 1999. He also covers the important events in Pakistan since the military coup of October 1999 and the impact of this on Indo-Pakistani relations, and focuses on recent events in Algeria, which have been linked to the extremist GIA - the group whose members are alleged to be involved in the new US-Canada conspiracies.

 Doyle, John ("H.B.") (1797-1868), San Leopoldo Matamoros or the Princess Charlotte's Own, Charging the Holy Alliance
Doyle, John ("H.B.") (1797-1868)
San Leopoldo Matamoros or the Princess Charlotte's Own, Charging the Holy Alliance
London: Thomas MacLean, 1830. Original lithograph. 15 x 11.5 inches. Very Good. Light signs of foxing. Inserted into light matting. Published 3 June, 1830. Sitters: Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales (1796-1817), Daughter of George IV. John Scott, 1st Earl of Eldon (1751-1838), Lord Chancellor. Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and King of Hanover (1771-1851), Son of George III. Leopold I, King of the Belgians (1790-1865), Reigned 1831-65; husband of Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales; uncle of Queen Victoria. Charles William Vane-Stewart, 3rd Marquess of Londonderry (1778-1854), Soldier and diplomat. Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1769-1852), Field Marshal and Prime Minister. John Doyle (Dublin 1797 - 2 January 1868 London), known by the pen name H. B. was a political cartoonist, caricaturist, painter and lithographer. In his youth he learned to paint landscapes under Gaspare Gabrielli, and miniature portraits at the Royal Dublin Society's drawing school under John Comerfield. He won a gold medal in 1805. He was commissioned to paint equestrian portraits of the Marquess of Sligo and Lord Talbot, the Irish viceroy, and in 1822 he produced six prints entitled The Life of a Racehorse. That year he moved to London with his wife, Marianna Conan. His painting Turning out the Stag brought him recognition when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1825. Doyle continued to exhibit miniatures until 1835, but by then he was experiencing greater success with his political cartoons, printed using the new reproductive medium of lithography, beginning in 1827. These were issued once a month during parliamentary sessions, and continued for twenty-two years. His caricatures were mostly faithful likenesses of their subjects, with little exaggeration, treated with sarcastic humor, often alluding to popular plays. They were signed with the letters H. B. constructed out of two Js and two Ds, Doyle's own initials. By 1840 he was prosperous enough to afford a fashionable house in Hyde Park, moving in the same circles as David Wilkie, Walter Scott, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, Thomas Macaulay, Thomas Moore and Samuel Rogers - but H. B.'s true identity remained a closely guarded secret until he revealed it in 1843 in a seventeen-page letter to Sir Robert Peel. In the 1840s, at the height of his popularity, indices of H.B.'s prints were published in The Times and by the publisher McLean, but his reputation faded. His later prints were gentle in their humor and drawn in a soft, indistinct style. Thackeray said his cartoons, although clever and witty, were too "genteel" to raise more than a gentlemanly smile - "You will never hear any laughing at 'H. B.'" When he died in 1868, his obituary in The Art Journal did not appear until three months after his death, and a posthumous sale of his sketches at Christie's in 1882 was canceled for lack of buyers. However, he is considered a founder of the school of British cartoon satirists represented by John Leech, John Tenniel, and his son Richard Doyle, which established the style made famous by Punch magazine. The British Museum has over 900 of his drawings in its collections. .
