St. John Capistran: A Reformer in battle By Mediatrix Press et al.
Hardcover: $45.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
St. John of Capistran was many things, a Franciscan, a theologian, a crusader, but ultimately a reformer of the Church, a friend of saints and a man zealous for the salvation of souls. The deep... More > remorse that took possession of him on the day of his conversion never left him and remained the dominant attitude of his mind. This penitential disposition underlay his preaching. Setting aside all reserve, he would make public confession in the pulpit, thus emulating the penitent Magdalene, his favorite saint. We are not surprised that such an energetic temperamental nature, always ready for action and battle, did not escape reproaches of irascibility and impetuosity. Yet appeals to his sympathy must have been frequent. Capistrano’s history is inextricably bound up with the great figures and world events of the 15th century. Hofer, in this powerful historical biography of the saint, traces his life as a reformer, preacher, and leading a Crusade to stop the Turkish onslaught into Europe.< Less

The few, and generally obsolete Tagalog words of Arabic and/or Persian origin that can be found in old and modern dictionaries are fragments from a period when they must have been more numerous,... More > although their number cannot ever have been very large. Some illustrate how Manila was an outpost of the Bornean polity based in Brunei, itself a part of the Indo-Javanese system, while others point at direct contacts with traders who spoke some varieties of Arabic, but were probably Indians, Persians, Armenians from Persia or even Turks. Thus these terms entered Tagalog over a very long period that lasted until the 19th Century.< Less

From the ancient classical times, the Greeks settled in Cyprus and remained until the present times. Since Alexander the Great’s occupation, the Ptolemaic period, Cleopatra’s kingdom, and thereafter centuries long of Byzantine Hellenism, the Cypriots remained as Grecian as any other part of the prolonged Hellenic history.

More > the island’s political situation and its people’s financial problems. Cyprus has always been strategically important for the various tyrannical old Empires; hence the reason why Cyprus was colonized for more than two and a half thousand years. A Mycenaean colony in the 14th century BC, it was ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Roman, and Byzantine empires. Richard I of England conquered it in 1191 and sold it to the French Crusader Guy de Lusignan under whom it became a feudal monarchy. An important base for the Crusades, it eventually came under the control of Italian trading states, until in 1571 it fell to the Ottoman Empire. It remained part of the Ottoman Empire until 1879, when it was placed under British administration. It was formally annexed by Britain in 1914 and in 1925 declared a crown colony.< Less
