When Laura Curtis Bullard wrote the novel Christine in 1856, she created one of antebellum America?s most radical heroines: a woman?s rights leader. Addressing the major social, political, and cultural issues surrounding women from within an unusually overt feminist framework for its time, Christine openly challenges a social and legal system that denies women full and equal rights. ø Christine defies her family, rejects marriage, and leaves a job as a teacher to embark on her career, rewriting the script for a successful nineteenth-century heroine. Along the way, she recreates domesticity on her own terms, helping other young women gain economic independence so that they, too, have the autonomy to make their own choices in love and life. One of the triumphs of the novel is the author?s ability to create a sympathetic heroine and a fast-paced plot that intertwines vivid scenes of suicide, destitution, and an insane asylum with theoretical and political discussions?so skillfully that the novel successfully appealed to otherwise hesitant middle-class readers.

Christine was eating into his mind, burrowing into his unconscious. Christine, blood-red, fat, and finned, was twenty. Her promise lay all in her past. Greedy and big, she was Arnie's obsession, a '58 Plymouth Fury. Broken down but not finished. There was still power in her - a frightening power that leaked like sump oil, staining and corrupting. A malign power that corroded the mind and turned ownership into possession.

Christine de Pizan's The Vision is both a powerful contemporary response to the chaos that would eventually precipitate Henry V's invasion of France, and a fascinating view of the author's own progress as a woman reader, writer, and public commentator in the late Middle Ages. As a long-time intimate of the French court, Christine here analyses the origins of the civil strife in which France found itself in 1405, and offers a possible future, calling for its resolution in the voice of a prophet. Alongside her documentation of the difficulties faced by a medieval woman left widowed early in life, she also explores issues of gender and authorship, interpretation and misinterpretation in her remarkable career as a writer and advisor of princes. Glenda McLeod is Professor Emerita, Gainesville State College; Charity Cannon Willard was Professor Emerita, Ladycliff College.

Christine de Pizan wrote voluminously, commenting on various aspects of the late-medieval society in which she lived. Considered by many to be the first French woman of letters, Christine and her writing have been difficult to place ever since she began putting her thoughts on the page. Although her work was neglected in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, there has been a eruption of Christine studies in recent decades, making her the perfect subject for a casebook. This volume serves as a useful guide to contemporary research exploring Christine's life and work as they reflected and influenced her socio-political milieu.

In this book, Hayes addresses the central concern in talmudic studies over the genesis of halakhic (legal) divergence between the Talmuds produced by the Palestinian rabbinic community (c. 370 C.E.) and the Babylonian rabbinic community (c. 650 C.E.). Hayes analyzes selected divergences between parallel passages of the two Talmuds. Proceeding on a case-by-case basis, she considers whether external influences (cultural or regional differences), internal factors (textual, hermeneutical, or dialectical), or some intersection of the two best accounts for the differences.

Description Though for most of her life Christine had felt that she'd not achieved anything of purpose, she now realizes that her life was a journey towards truth: the truth about humanity and herself and God. Her story is in the form of a series of letters that she sent to enlighten influential people, at the end of her own journey towards enlightenment. The letters will be helpful for mental health professionals and social workers and for teachers trying to understand children with problems. Her story will give hope and inspiration to sufferers and carers round the world, as her published article 'Drug-induced Apathy' did for a Brazilian mother with a schizophrenic teenage son. About the AuthorChristine was raped at the age of seven by a stranger and reborn in her fifties. Eventually diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder, she now finds herself intrinsically sane, with a firm understanding of what reality is to an objective mind, a subjective mind, God's mind, and her own mind. She does not claim to know the whole of the Creator's mind, 'only the part known to us by knowing Christ, the part which relates to humanity'. Christine was once tested by an eminent statistician, Dr Vaughan Williams, who told her that she had immense creative intelligence. Because of her high score, he asked if she had ever suffered from a mental illness. Christine did not realize then that she had a multiple personality and answered no. Though for most of her life she had felt that she'd not achieved anything of purpose, Christine now realizes that her life was a journey towards truth: the truth about humanity and herself and God.

Pathways To Peace entices the reader into the magnificent splendor of the higher dimensions and explores many facets of life after death. It weaves around a diversity of inspiring personal experiences of those who have clinically died and returned to tell their remarkable stories. It describes in detail what happens when we ‘die’ and dispels all fears of death and dying. It is designed to illustrate that we are all eternal, glorious Divine beings that can choose to embrace the transition into another dimension when we pass over and re-unite with Source – The Light- to be enveloped and caressed by a depth of unconditional love that defies human description. It shows that we are never judged, we are all from the same original Source and as such are all interconnected. The book reveals many examples of After Death Communication and offers insights derived from some of Christine’s own personal experiences as to why she believes there are no accidents. Pathways To Peace also provides practical support, insights and encouragement for those coping with loss.
