Examines, through a close reading of a wide-range of texts, how the image of the religious minister and religion is mirrored in literature. Authors examined include Chaucer, Shakespeare, George Eliot, James Joyce, Trollope, Morris West, Graham Greene, Bernanos, and others. Genres considered and non-canonical texts studied include: Fitzgerald's short story "Absolution"; Chapter 7 of John Henry Newman's only semi-autobiographical novel; Edmund Gosse's unique text; and Ralph Waldo Emerson's text from the essay genre combined with his various journal entries and letters. An interdisciplinary effort, this volume is well documented and researched, yet still accessible to a non-academic readership.

It describes, compares, interprets, and explains religion, emphasizing systematic, historically based, and cross-cultural perspectives.

These are important, but fundamentally iconography is a reflection, in artistic forms, of the Church’s dogmatic belief’s and vision. As it is appropriate to judge doctrinal declarations by the canon of orthodoxy, meaning true faith and vision, it is equally appropriate to submit Church art to the same canon. It is, therefore, quite possible for there to be heterodox, even heretical, works of Church.

History and Its Images book.

The religious changes of the period are revealed in the literary . Religious images are good because they foster cultural literacy and focus acceptable forms of devotion among the orthodox.

The religious changes of the period are revealed in the literary self-presentation of spiritual seekers, the influence of Daoism on motifs in poetry, and Buddhist influences on both poetry and historiography. Traditional Chinese literary figures, such as the fox and the ghost, receive fresh analysis about their particular representation during this period. This interdisciplinary study examines cultural representation of black women in the British Isles before 1530.

According to some literary and religious studies scholars, modern Theosophy had a certain influence on contemporary literature, particularly in forms of genre fiction such as fantasy and science fiction.

The imitation of the Church is plain in the pagan reforms attempted by the Emperor Julian, a devoted adherent to the cult of Cybele.

Scholars of religion have argued that a study of the subject is useful for individuals because it will provide them with knowledge that is pertinent in inter-personal and professional contexts within an increasingly globalised world

A number of the great works of Western literature address themselves very directly to questions that arise within Christianity and test doctrine by means of dramatic imagination. These are classic methods of interpretation. The biblical narratives are themselves allusive in this way, anticipating the death of Christ and recalling these foreshadowings and others drawn from Old Testament prophecy as the story proceeds to its climax.
