♥ Book Title : Mirror on the Veil
☯ Full Synopsis : ""This anthology of personal essays from around the globe demystifies the individual significance of the veil by taking you inside the hearts and minds of those who have experienced it first hand. How do different societies relate to a veiled woman? Can covering the hair be an act of defiance and empowerment? Can the veil be seen as an expression of one's own sensuality? Part academic and part confessional, the stories inside help answer these questions by moving beyond the religious significance attached to this controversial stretch of fabric. Instead they explore the psychological, sociological and spiritual implications of veiling, giving voice to men and women of varied religious and cultural backgrounds who have been touched by the veil." -- Back cover."Article| Shaheen Pasha| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Veil
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Islamic headscarf has become the subject of heated legal and political debate. France and Germany have legislated against it, and even the UK, long a champion of multiculturalism, has recently restricted the veil proper. Ever since home–grown Islamic terrorism struck Europe, these debates have become even more prominent, impassioned and wide–ranging, with vital global importance. In this concise and beautifully written introduction to the politics of the veil in modern societies, Christian Joppke examines why a piece of clothing could have led to such controversy. He dissects the multiple meanings of the Islamic headscarf, and explores its links with the global rise of Islam, Muslim integration, and the retreat from multiculturalism. He argues that the headscarf functions as a mirror of identity, but one in which national and liberal identities overlap, exposing the paradox that while it may be an affront to liberal values, its suppression is equally illiberal. Veil: Mirror of Identity will illuminate, challenge and provoke readers, and will make compelling reading for scholars, students and general readers alike"Article| Christian Joppke| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Light Shining Through a Veil
☯ Full Synopsis : "The spirituality of Saint Clare of Assisi, the soul mate of Saint Francis, is the object of this book. Her spirituality was inspired by Francis' and she owes much to him, like he to her. This book is meant to be a contribution to the study of Clare and her thoughts. In her four letters, written to Saint Agnes of Prague, Clare expresses herself more openly about her deepest motivations than in any other writing. They concentrate on the heart of her choice of life and as such they reproduce the most beautiful gift which God gave her. Clare's sprituality as it comes to the fore in these leters, can only then be fully understood when we take into account their creative structure. The specific aim of this books is to do justice to her texts in a method which, to our knowledge, was never applied before. It consists in an elaborated analysis of the fine, concentric structure of the letters to Agnes, combined with an ongoing commentary in which historical data are also given attention."Article| Edith van den Goorbergh| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Seeing Through the Veil
☯ Full Synopsis : "During the later Middle Ages, new optical theories were introduced that located the power of sight not in the seeing subject, but in the passive object of vision. This shift had a powerful impact not only on medieval science but also on theories of knowledge, and this changing relationship of vision and knowledge was a crucial element in late medieval religious devotion. In Seeing through the Veil, Suzanne Conklin Akbari examines several late medieval allegories in the context of contemporary paradigm shifts in scientific and philosophical theories of vision. After a survey on the genre of allegory and an overview of medieval optical theories, Akbari delves into more detailed studies of several medieval literary works, including the Roman de la Rose, Dante's Vita Nuova, Convivio, and Commedia, and Chaucer's dream visions and Canterbury Tales. The final chapter, 'Division and Darkness,' centres on the legacy of allegory in the fifteenth century. Offering a new interdisciplinary, synthetic approach to late medieval intellectual history and to major works within the medieval literary canon, Seeing through the Veil will be an essential resource to the study of medieval literature and culture, as well as philosophy, history of art, and history of science."Article| Suzanne Conklin Akbari| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Mirror and Veil
☯ Full Synopsis : "Spenser not only dedicated The FAerie Queene to Queen Elizabeth but asserted that his romantic epic was in some sense about her rule and her realm. The informed attention that O'Connell gives to the relationship between Spenser's reflections on contemporary history and his moral design makes this volume a convincing reading of the great poem. The author shows how Spenser used Vergil as his model in celebrating and judging his own age. Originally published in 1977.

♥ Book Title : The Mask, the Mirror, and the Illusion
☯ Full Synopsis : "In a world inundated by irrational thinking and insane decisions, with charismatic characters and bizarre relationships, it is time to pull the curtain aside and reveal the Illusionary Oz. It is time to step up to bat and acknowledge your part in this insanity of tangible players set against an inexplicable dreamscape. Paramount in a world of suffering, war and pain is your choice to awaken to the knowing that this is only an illusion and you must step into freedom and truth for all of us.With our external and internal world on the brink of self-destruction and sabotage, you no longer have the luxury of letting someone else carry the burden. It is time to shift your society into being spirit focused and away from an ailing ancient society extolling the ego. And it can only be done by correcting the misperceptions of each individual that make up that world.The Mask, the Mirror and the Illusion is a succinct guidebook for walking you out of an ego-centered illusion into a spirit-led reality based on its original creator. In any journey it is important to have news from those who have gone before to light the way. The author, Julie Hutslar, converses with her companion “J”, who represents the Christ Within and guides us all out of our drowsy slumber into full awakening of who we truly are. With that awakening comes the realization that we have participated in this illusion more than we would like to admit, and also we carry within us the power to transform it for us all. Ms Hutslar, author of Relationships: Gifts of the Spirit, speaks clearly and openly, has a gift of communication and translation and constantly questions accepted reality and authority. Her questions to J prove to be alleyways to self-awareness and she shares them with stories, analogies and examples. She also has a grasp on A Course in Miracles that helps her relay, through assistance from that text, the what nows as opposed to the whys. You are walked hand in hand through a maze of insane thinking we've all come to accept as normal and offered practical suggestions for seeing through this mind-created illusion to unveil the truth of who you really are. And it isn't about changing and becoming something else. It's about remembering who you have always been, but have simply been dreaming you are something you are not."Article| Julie Hutslar| Statement ..."
