The Conversion of Constantine By Roberto Miguel Rodriguez
eBook (ePub): $4.99
Constantine the Great (285-337) was the Roman Emperor from 307 to 337. In these thirty years as Emperor of the Roman Empire he made two important decisions whose repercussions are still felt today.... More > One was his conversion to Christianity, becoming the first Roman Emperor to do so, and making Catholicism the official religion of the Roman Empire. The second great decision was the move of the capital from Rome to Constantinople. This thesis analyzes the first of Constantine’s two great decisions: his conversion to Christianity. It finds that Constantine’s conversion took place gradually, and was a matter of conscience, not calculation. The religious experience that Constantine had at the onset of the battle at Milvian Bridge in 312 is likely to have started a process that led to his conversion to Christianity during his lifetime, and culminated with the Christian baptism on his deathbed.< Less

Medieval Medicine (Illustrated) By James J. Walsh

“Medieval Medicine” is the story of the medical sciences in the Middle Ages. The Middle Ages are usually assumed to begin with the deposition of Romulus Augustulus, 476, and end with the... More > fall of Constantinople, 1453. In this little volume, then, we have to outline the history of human efforts to prevent and treat the ills of mankind for nearly one thousand years. Until recently, it has been the custom to believe that there was so little of genuine interest in anything like the scientific care of ailing human beings during these centuries, that even a volume of this kind might seem large for the tale of it. Now we know how much these men of the Middle Ages, for so long called the “Dark Ages,” were interested in every phase of human progress. They created a great art and literature, and above all a magnificent architecture.< Less

Botticelli: "Masterpieces In Colour" Series Book II By Henry Bryan Binns
eBook (ePub): $2.99
From Florence, in the second half of the fifteenth century, men looked into a new dawn. When the Turk took Constantinople in 1443, the "glory that was Greece" was carried to her by fleeing... More > scholars, and she became for one brilliant generation the home of that Platonic worship of beauty and philosophy which had been so long an exile from the hearts of men. We say Platonic, because it was especially to Plato, the mystic, that she turned, possessed still by something of the mystical intensity of her own great poet, himself an exile. When, in 1444, Pope Eugenius left her to return to Rome, Florence was ready to welcome this new wanderer, the spirit of the ancient world. And the almost childish wonder with which she received that august guest is evident in all the marvellous work of the years that followed, in none more than in that of "SANDRO BOTTICELLI". Botticelli's posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century. Among his best known works are The Birth of VENUS and PRIMAVERA.< Less

Praying the Liturgy By A Monk of the Orthodox Church
Paperback: $8.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
These pages are not a new translation of the liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, neither are they a rigid commentary on this liturgy. They contain no historical explanations or theological developments.... More > They are merely "notes," i.e. short remarks that set off certain passages of the text of the liturgy, certain principle themes of this long and very rich prayer which St. John Chrysostom took from Antioch to Constantinople in the fourth century and which, in its main lines, is found already fixed in the Greek manuscripts of the eighth century. We have wished to "orient" the attention and reflection of the faithful towards certain spiritual heights of this text. We have not written for the learned, but for the laity, men and women, and even for school children, for souls that are the least familiar with dogmatic discussions and who never the less want some clear and elementary notions of the liturgy. - From the Preface< Less
