Supplementa Humanistica Lovaniensia XXIV - Juan Maldonado's, Ludus Chartarum, Pastor Bonus and Bacchanalia - Spanish Humanism on the Verge of the Pica
Juan Maldonado's, Ludus Chartarum, Pastor Bonus and Bacchanalia
Paperback / softback || Warren Smith & Clark Colahan || Leuven University Press
The 16th-century humanist Juan Maldonado in his Latin essays foreshadows the Spanish picaresque. Like Erasmus, with whom he corresponded,Maldonado advocated the use of Latin in a wide-range of activities. Maldonados Pastor Bonus, a lengthy open letter to a bishop, reviews in a vivid and satirical style the abuses of the churchmen in his diocese. His ludus chartarum is framed as a colloquium similar to Vives on the subject, entertaining while teaching a Latin terminology for card playing. ...
The Maritain Factor
taking Religion into Interwar Modernism
Jan de Maeyer & Rajesh Heynickx || Leuven University Press
By studying the reception and perception of the French Catholic philosopher Jacques Maritain, this book argues that European modernist artists and intellectuals sought a primordial finality in Catholicism.

For the painters Gino Severini, a pioneer of Futurism, and Otto Van Rees, one of the first Dadaists both converts Maritain played the role of spiritual counselor. And when the promo...

The Dynamics of Religious Reform in Northern Europe, 1780-1920 - Political and Legal Perspectives
Hardback || Stewart Brown, Heiner de Wall, Andreas Gestrich & Anders Jarlert || Leuven University Press
Before the last quarter of the eighteenth century there was a generally clear and remarkably uniform pattern of church-state relationships across Europe. In the course of the nineteenth century this firm alliance between political and religious establishments broke down. Religious pluralism developed everywhere, though at different speeds, requiring church and state to reach fresh solutions.
This volume Political and Legal Perspectives highlights the impact of broad political change, democ...
Paperback / softback || H. de Dijn || Leuven University Press
Sacred places have long exercised a special fascination. Sacred places are not static entities but reveal a historical dynamic. They are the result of cultural developments and have varied multidimensional levels of significance. They are places where time is, as it were, suspended, and they are points where holy times and holy places meet. Sacred places are places apart.
It is this specificity in the context of the Christian religions of the West that Loci Sacri wishes to unveil by bringing...

After de-industrialisation and the 1984 opening of the Lewarde Mining Museu...
