Nacida como Rita Rizzo en Canton, Ohio, en 1923, la Madre Ang lica fue abandonada por su padre y criada en la pobreza por una madre que padec a de depresi n. De joven, Rita sufri fuertes dolores abdominales que los m dicos pensaron que se deb an a un? problema de los nervios? pero sus s ntomas desaparecieron cuando una m stica de su localidad rez por ella. Al darse cuenta del poder de la oraci n, Rita jur dedicar su vida a Dios y se hizo monja de clausura, con la esperanza de pasar toda su existencia lejos del mundo. Pero muy pronto, la fe de Rita la impuls a realizar obras incre bles, desde establecer un monasterio en Alabama hasta dar inicio a la primera cadena cat lica de televisi n por cable. Confiando nicamente en? la providencia de Dios? la Madre Ang lica construy un imperio sin prestar atenci n a presupuestos ni a campa as de recaudaci n, y logr lo que ni los m s altos prelados de la Iglesia Cat lica hab an logrado hacer. Raymond Arroyo combina su objetividad period stica y su habilidad para captar los detalles en los m s de cinco a os de entrevistas exclusivas con la Madre Ang lica, para traernos esta incre ble historia. En su narraci n, Arroyo sigue el tortuoso ascenso al xito de la Madre y saca a la luz por primera vez la feroz oposici n que ella enfrent, tanto dentro como fuera de la Iglesia Cat lica. Esta es una inspiradora historia de supervivencia y una prueba de que la fe de una mujer puede mover mucho m s que monta as. [Read more]

Historia Selebiensis Monasterii: The History of the Monastery of Selby (Oxford Medieval Texts)

Historia Selebiensis Monasterii: The History of the Monastery of Selby (Oxford Medieval Texts)

$160.00

The Historia Selebiensis Monasterii is an account of the origins of the earliest Norman abbey to be founded in the north of England following the Conquest of 1066, and of the history of the monastery in its first one hundred and six years. The history was written by a young monk of Selby in 1174, and the unique medieval manuscript in which it survives appears to have been sent from Selby to the French monastery of Auxerre, from where the author claimed the founder-monk of Selby came. Weaving together historical narrative and miracles associated with the relic held at Selby Abbey, the middle finger of St Germanus of Auxerre, the author produced a lively and entertaining account designed to record the history of his monastery and promote the cult of the relic around which it had grown up. At the same time he created a past, and a corporate memory of that past, for his community. This volume contains a critical edition of the Historia, with English translation, and textual notes and historical commentary. The Introduction explores the dynamics of the text - its purpose, composition, and use of sources - and its significance as a source for monastic history. It offers a reassessment of the origins of the first Norman abbey in northern England. [Read more]

It ends with an examination of culture in Spain, especially the arts. With content focused primarily on the past two centuries, students using Espa a y los espa oles de hoy receive a much more focused study of modern-day Spanish civilization and culture than they would with other books that provide basic overviews of the past two thousand years in Spain.
