Hans Urs Von Balthasar And The Question Of Tragedy In The Novels Of Thomas Hardy
- Hardback - T & T Clark
What role do novels, drama, and tragedy play within Christian thought and living? The twentieth century Catholic theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar addressed these questions using tragic drama. For him, Christ was the true tragic hero of the world who exceeded all tragic literature and experience. Balthasar demonstrated how ancient, pre-Christian tragedy and Renaissance works contained important Christian concepts, but he critiqued modern novels as failing to be either truly tragic or Christian.

The Highland Destitution Of 1837: Government Aid And Public Subscription
- Hardback - Scottish History Society
Successive harvest failures in 1835 and 1836 meant that the people of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland began 1837 with an almost total lack of food for the present and of seed for the future. Severe destitution in 1837 was the result. There is a large body of unpublished source material relating to this destitution, which is presented in this book for the first time. These documents shed light on important wider issues: clearance and emigration, demography, poor law reform, religious questions and the role of the state. They are presened here with an introduction and full explanatory notes.
