Christian Symbol and Ritual: An Introduction

Christian Symbol and Ritual: An Introduction by Bernard Cooke
English | September 8, 2005 | ISBN: 0195154118 | 192 pages | PDF | 2 MB

In Christian Symbol and Ritual, Bernard Cooke and Gary Macy offer an accessible and engaging introduction to the topic written from a non-denominational perspective. Cooke and Macy demonstrate that celebration, ritual, and symbol are already central to our lives, even though most do not see their actions as symbolic or ritualistic. They connect central Christian symbols to the symbols and rituals already present in everyday life and place Christian theology in a familiar context. After discussing the characteristics and functions of rituals, they explore different kinds of ritual, including those of friendship, worship, and healing. The authors also examine such questions as how rituals establish and maintain power relationships, how "official" rituals are different from "popular" Christian rituals and devotions, and how Christian rituals function in the process of human salvation. Christian Symbol and Ritual is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and lay readers.

"Constantine, Divine Emperor of the Christian Golden Age" by Jonathan Bardill
CamUni Press | 2012 | ISBN: 0521764238 9780521764230 | 469 pages | PDF | 31 MB

This excellent book represents a successful attempt to integrate historically and visually what is known about Constantine, the first Christian emperor, a chameleon and a transformative personality. This book offers a radical reassessment of Constantine as an emperor, a pagan, and a Christian. The book examines in detail a wide variety of evidence, including literature, secular and religious architectural monuments, coins, sculpture, and other works of art.
