Interesting facts and figures about these devotional places of prayer and worship. A recent author endorsement: "I have to say that of the many books I have read (having multiple degrees in theology - including my doctorate from Columbia University) your They Bore the Wounds of Christ: The Mystery of the Sacred Stigmata is one of my all time favorites. In fact not only do I continue to refer to it, but there are certain passages that you explain that could only be attributable to infused divine inspiration. Please continue to write.... Peace, Deacon Mike Vicinanza." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/061711/bk_acx0_061711_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
The fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering time of crusades and castles, cathedrals and chivalry, and the exquisitely decorated Books of Hours; and on the other, a time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world of chaos and the plague. Barbara Tuchman reveals both the great rhythms of history and the grain and texture of domestic life as it was lived. Here are the guilty passions, loyalties and treacheries, political assassinations, sea battles and sieges, corruption in high places and a yearning for reform, satire and humor, sorcery and demonology, and lust and sadism on the stage. Here are proud cardinals, beggars, feminists, university scholars, grocers, bankers, mercenaries, mystics, lawyers, and tax collectors, and, dominating all, the knight in his valor and "furious follies", a "terrible worm in an iron cocoon". 1.

Paul's letters reveal a remarkable human being: dedicated, compassionate, emotional, sometimes harsh and angry, clever and quick-witted, supple in argumentation, and above all possessing a soaring, passionate commitment to God, Jesus Christ, and his own mission. Fortunately, after his death one of his followers collected some of the letters, edited them very slightly, and published them. They constitute one of history's most remarkable personal contributions to religious thought and practice. - E.P. Sanders Aside from Jesus himself, one of the most important and best known individuals of the New Testament is Paul the Apostle, formerly Saul of Tarsus. A "Hebrew born of Hebrews", Paul's conversion to Christianity was unquestionably one of the seminal events in the history of the religion, because it would be Paul who spread Christianity across much of the Mediterranean. In the process, over half of the history recorded in the Acts of the Apostles covers the life of Paul, and over half of the letters of the New Testament were written by him. Many churches and cathedrals in the western world have been named after him, and on any given Sunday in any number of churches around the world, his writings and the events of his life form the basis of sermons, devotional literature, books, Bible studies, music, movies, and prayers. 1.

The Languedoc is a hidden jewel of Europe; the most discriminating tourists are delighted to discover it. The area has many of the same traits that endear people to neighboring Provence: a warm coastline, outdoor markets, picturesque hillside villages, gourmet dining, and vineyards dotting the landscape. Yet Provence is the one with the reputation that causes tourists to flock there. Provence's popularity is largely thanks to books such as A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle. Make no mistake. The Languedoc-Roussillon is as enchanting, if not more so, as its trendier neighbor. Perhaps it's a crisp, dewy morning that inspires you to make a dawn stroll to a bakery. Maybe you catch a whiff of some intangible, indescribable smell reminiscent of a mountaintop in the Languedoc. It could even be a dream in which you were there, only to wake longing to return. The Languedoc has a certain immeasurable quality to it. Fond memories cling to you well after you return home. The Languedoc can suit almost any traveler's tastes. It is not densely populated, and there are many rural outposts for anyone who desires a retreat from the bustle of the big city. Those who prefer to be in the thick of things, however, have the option of visiting the region's larger cities, such as Carcassonne, Montpellier, or Perpignan. There are beaches, mountains, valleys, and the Canal du Midi. There are medieval villages, ancient Roman ruins, Cathar strongholds, and stately cathedrals. Any visit must feature a sampling of the local cuisine, which is delectable. The ancient village of Carcassonne has many features to be commended. The best feature is La Cite, the old fortified city that is entirely surrounded by ramparts. Inside, there are museums, cafes, and souvenir shops selling medieval tapestries and Cathar figurines. Montpellier, in the Herault, is the capital of the Languedoc. It is also home to a 13th-century medical school and museums devoted to medicine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Sasser.
