Summary Book Review The Missionary's Curse and Other Tales from a Chinese Catholic Village by Henrietta Harrison:
Download or read book The Missionary's Curse and Other Tales from a Chinese Catholic Village written by Henrietta Harrison and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2013-06-01 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The MissionaryÕs Curse tells the story of a Chinese village that has been Catholic since the seventeenth century, drawing direct connections between its history, the globalizing church, and the nation. Harrison recounts the popular folk tales of merchants and peasants who once adopted Catholic rituals and teachings for their own purposes, only to find themselves in conflict with the orthodoxy of Franciscan missionaries arriving from Italy. The villageÕs long religious history, combined with the similarities between Chinese folk religion and Italian Catholicism, forces us to rethink the extreme violence committed in the area during the Boxer Uprising. The author also follows nineteenth century Chinese priests who campaigned against missionary control, up through the founding of the official church by the Communist Party in the 1950s. HarrisonÕs in-depth study provides a rare insight into villager experiences during the Socialist Education Movement and Cultural Revolution, as well as the growth of Christianity in China in recent years. She makes the compelling argument that Catholic practice in the village, rather than adopting Chinese forms in a gradual process of acculturation, has in fact become increasingly similar to those of Catholics in other parts of the world.

Summary Book Review Bold Ventures by Charlotte Van den Broeck:
Download or read book Bold Ventures written by Charlotte Van den Broeck and published by Random House. This book was released on 2022-05-05 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A spellbinding new talent explores the dark side of creativity through the stories of thirteen tragic architects 'Bold Ventures resembles a pop version of Iain Sinclair's psychogeography or Out of Sheer Rage, Geoff Dyer's anti-biography of DH Lawrence' Olivia Laing, Guardian In thirteen chapters, Belgian poet Charlotte Van den Broeck goes in search of buildings that were fatal for their architects - architects who either killed themselves or are rumoured to have done so. They range across time and space from a church with a twisted spire built in seventeenth-century France to a theatre that collapsed mid-performance in 1920s Washington, DC., and an eerily sinking swimming pool in her hometown of Turnhout. Drawing on a vast range of material, from Hegel and Charles Darwin to art history, stories from her own life and popular culture, patterns gradually come into focus, as Van den Broeck asks: what is that strange life-or-death connection between a creation and its creator? Threaded through each story, and in prose of great essayistic subtlety, Van den Broeck meditates on the question of suicide - what Albert Camus called the 'one truly serious philosophical problem' - in relation to creativity and public disgrace. The result is a profoundly idiosyncratic book, breaking new ground in literary non-fiction, as well as providing solace and consolation - and a note of caution - to anyone who has ever risked their hand at a creative act. 'What a sensible, intelligent and beautiful book' Stefan Hertmans, author of War and Turpentine

Book excerpt: Eggmen and Emeralds The Gentiles tried to confound the followers of the prophet after they tarred and feathered him in Missouri and murdered him in Illinois. The Lehmanites and the Sons of Seth came to our aid by the glory of God even though we had slandered them, and the nation of the Latter-Day Saints was arisen. The Mormon Ascendancy The Mormon ascendancy, whereby they settle California, only occurs on time lines where a variety of unlikely events all occur. Chief among these unlikely events is the rise of a colored man (a person of partially African descent), James Douglas, to the post of governor-general of the Pacific Northwest colonies of the British Empire. He was not only their first governor-general but also their founder, having first founded the colony of Vancouver Island with a fort and townsite at Victoria. Later, he founded the mainland colony of British Columbia as well. Hughy Rough Shanks and the Virgins The legend of Hughy and the maidens was known on all the worlds of men. The story varied from ribald drinking songs on one world to serious religious stories on another, but the legend was always essentially the same. The aliens had intended to destroy earth, but before they had done so, Hughy and the virgins had spread human beings far and wide to other stars. In doing so, they frightened the aliens so badly that they had moved far away from the contagion. Here we have the story of Hughy Rough Shanks and the maidens and how they saved mankind.
