More > unique spiritual and physical identity amidst the backdrops of nature and modern civilization and the role of art in the formation of personal identity.

More > Greek word ἀνωνυμία, anonymia, meaning "without a name" or "namelessness". In colloquial use, "anonymous" is used to describe situations where the acting person's name is unknown. It can be said as not using your own name, simply. Some writers have argued that namelessness, though technically correct, does not capture what is more centrally at stake in contexts of anonymity. The important idea here is that a person be non-identifiable, unreachable, or untrackable. Anonymity is seen as a technique, or a way of realizing, certain other values, such as privacy, or liberty.An important example for anonymity being not only protected, but enforced by law is probably the vote in free elections.

The 22 chapters that make up this book first appeared in the quarterly magazine Le Héraut du Royaume between 2008 and 2014. The purpose of these articles is to explain some of the words and... More > expressions that appear in the Bible. Bible vocabulary presents a number of difficulties for the modern reader: the Bible is a translated text and modern French lacks exact equivalents to the original Hebrew and Greek. And even in our French version we face language that is sometimes difficult or archaic or uses specialist terms. The greatest difficulty, however, is that the religious language we encounter in the Bible has a deceptive familiarity; it uses words and phrases that are part of the traditional Christian vocabulary, but the meaning that tradition attributes to them is not always that which they originally possessed. It is hoped that this book will help the Bible reader to overcome such obstacles.< Less
