  • The Lost Messiah: In Search of the Mystical Rabbi Sabbatai Sevi

    The Lost Messiah: In Search of the Mystical Rabbi Sabbatai Sevi

    Sert Kapak
    The Lost Messiah is the astonishing story of Sabbatai Sevi, a seventeenth-century rabbi who through the mysticism of the Kabbalah convinced vast numbers of Jews throughout Europe, the Middle East and North Africa that he was the long-awaited Messiah. Most of his followers were enraged and stupefied when he embraced Islam (on threat of execution from the Turkish Sultan), but many others continued to believe him. Some even converted to Islam themselves, creating the sect known even today as the Dönme – outwardly Muslim, yet clinging secretly to Judaism. A few Sabbatians still secretly hold true to their beliefs, patiently waiting for their Messiah to return and lead them to redemption; they believe that Sabbatai is not dead but merely hidden from human view, despite more than three centuries having passed since he was last seen. When John Freely came across the name of Sabbatai Sevi in an old Jewish bookshop in Istanbul, he was instantly fascinated by the story and journeyed to Izmir, the principal Aegean port of Turkey and Sabbatai’s first home. Brilliantly evoking the vanished world of the seventeenth-century Jewish Diaspora in the Ottoman Empire, his narrative moves to the ghettos of Venice and Rome, the bazaars of Cairo, and the rabbinical schools in Jerusalem and Safed. The result of thirty years of research and travel, THE LOST MESSIAH deftly interweaves the work of respected scholars – especially the scholarly writings of Gershom Scholem – along with Freely’s own firsthand knowledge of ancient and contemporary Turkey and its environs. Ranging from the Sultan’s palaces in Istanbul to the synagogues of North Africa and out to the isolated Jewish communities of the Yemen and even the remote reaches of Albania, Freely’s remarkable story takes us deep into the esoteric world of Jewish mysticism and the messianic cult which still inspires belief today.

  • Bright Colors Falsely Seen: Synaesthesia and the Search for Transcendental Knowledge

    Bright Colors Falsely Seen: Synaesthesia and the Search for Transcendental Knowledge

    Sert Kapak
    In a conversation with his physician, a 19th-century resident of Paris who lived near the railroad described sensations of colour generated by the sounds of trains passing in the night. This patient - a synaesthete - experienced "colour hearing" for letters, words and most sounds. Synaesthesia, a phemomenon now known to science for over a century, is a rare form of perception in which one sense may respond to stimuli received by other senses. This book provides an historical treatment of synaesthesia and a closely related mode of perception called eideticism. Kevin Dann discusses divergent views of synaesthesia and eideticism over the last 100 years and explores the controversies over the significance of these unusual modes of perception. Celebrated at the turn of the century as a uniquely creative form of consciousness, synaesthesia became embroiled in a debate between Romantics who championed it as a desirable harbinger of a new, more spiritual age, and positivists who denounced it as primitive and irrational. The author debunks Romantic notions of the transcendental nature of synaesthesia and shows that although novelist Vladimir Nabokov was a true synaesthete and eidetic, other individuals the Romantics considered synaesthetes were not. Drawing on studies of autism and hallucinogenic drugs, Dann offers perspectives on synaesthesia and eideticism and how they relate to the evolution of human consciousness.

  • Teaching Ritual (Aar Teaching Religious Studies Series)

    Teaching Ritual (Aar Teaching Religious Studies Series)

    Karton Kapak
    There is a great deal of interest in bringing a better appreciation of ritual into religious studies classes, but many teachers are uncertain how to go about doing this. Religious studies faculty know how to teach texts, but they are often unprepared to teach something for which the meaning lies in the doing. How much doing should a class do? How does the teacher talk about religious concepts that exist in practical relationships, not textual descriptions? These practical issues also give rise to theoretical questions. Giving more attention to ritual effectively suggests a reinterpretation of religion itselfless focused on what people have thought and written, and more focused on how they order their universe. Much of the useful analysis of ritual derives from anthropological and sociological premises, which are often foreign to religious studies faculty and are seen by some as theologically problematic. This is the first resource to address the issues specific to teaching this subject. A stellar cast of contributors, who teach ritual in a wide variety of courses and settings, explain what has worked for them in the classroom, what hasn't, and what they've learned from experience. Their voices range from personal to formal, and their topics from Japanese theatre to using field trips. The result is a thoughtful guide for teachers who are new to the subject as well as experienced ones looking for fresh angles and approaches.

  • The Medieval Mystical Tradition in England: Papers Read at Charney Manor, July 2004 (Exeter Symposium VII) (Vol 7)

    The Medieval Mystical Tradition in England: Papers Read at Charney Manor, July 2004 (Exeter Symposium VII) (Vol 7)

    Sert Kapak
    The latest volume of proceedings in the series initiated by Marion Glasscoe in 1980 shares with its predecessors a concentrated focus on the English mystical authors and the reception of their continental contemporaries in medieval England. At the same time, it bears witness to the range of disciplinary approaches - literary, historical, theological, art historical - which are currently bearing fruit in research on the medieval mystical tradition. The thirteen papers include new work on Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe, the Cloud- author and the thirteenth-century anchoritic texts; texts connected with Syon Abbey and the Bridgettines; and the reception of Ruusbroec, Eckhart and the continental holy women in England. Among the themes explored are the spirituality of the religious orders; gender, class and mystical discourse; the theological precision of mystical language, and the translatio of the continental mystics into English cultural forms. Contributors: DENISE N. BAKER, ALEXANDRA BARRATT, SUSANNAH MARY CHEWNING, MARLEEN CRE, VASLERIE EDDEN, VINCENT GILLESPIE, DAVID GRIFFITH, A.ANNETTE GRISE, ANN M. HUTCHISON, LIZ HERBERT MCAVOY, KARL HEINZ STEINMETZ, ANNIE SUTHERLAND, NAOE KUKITA YOSHIKAWA. Dr E.A. JONES teaches in the Department of English at the University of Exeter.

    Messianism, Apocalypse and Redemption in 20th Century German Thought (ATF)

    Karton Kapak
    At the beginning of the 20th century the tropes of messianism, apocalype and redemption, which had been so cnetral to the West's religious formation, seemed spetn forces in Germany. This book introduces some of Germany's key thinkers in theology, philosophy, soical and political thought and litreature through their engagement with these previously discarded concepts.
