Abstract

El objeto de este libro ha sido estudiar la primera biblioteca que tuvo la Universidad de Mallorca, formada con las que establecieron los Jesuitas en los colegios de Montesión y San Martín de Palma y San Ignacio de Pollença. Fue una biblioteca universitaria abierta a todo estudioso que la quiso consultar, por tanto estamos en los orígenes de la lectura pública en Mallorca. El tema central es la biblioteca, sobre la que giran los acontecimientos históricos, en un contexto inmediato, traslado de libros, organización, inventario, acondicionamiento de espacios, actuación de los miembros del claustro universitario, y aquellos que van ocurriendo en el ámbito que la envuelve, la ciudad de Palma, enmarcados en las ideas de la Ilustración. La acotación cronológica se sustenta en dos años importantes para la vida universitaria mallorquina: 1767, por la expulsión de los Jesuitas, y 1829, por la real orden de supresión de la Universidad. La investigación se ha fundamentado en fuentes documentales conservadas en archivos históricos de Palma y Madrid. Los resultados obtenidos están organizados sobre un hilo cronológico que nos permite estudiar la evolución de la Universidad, desde un punto de vista institucional, en su etapa final de la mano de su biblioteca---The purpose of this book was to study the first university library of Majorca, which was formed by the union of the libraries that Jesuits had established in the schools of Montesión and San Martín in Palma and San Ignacio in Pollença. It was a universitylibrary opened to everybody, therefore we are at the origins of public reading in Majorca. The main subject is the library, its organization, transfer of books, inventory, space conditioning, performance of the members of the faculty and the events that happen in the city of Palma, framed by the Enlightment. The chronological dimension isbased on two important years for Majorcan university life: 1767 (expulsion of the Jesuits) and 1829 (royal order of suppression of the university). The research has beenbased on documentary sources preserved in historical archives of Palma and Madrid.The results obtained are organized on a chronological thread that allows us to study theevolution of the university, from an institutional point of view, in its final stage throughthe history of the library.

Abstract

Christianity in China has a history dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618–907 CE), when Allopen—the first Nestorian missionary—arrived there in 635. In the late sixteenth century, Matteo Ricci together with other Jesuit missionaries commenced the Catholic missions to China. Protestant Christianity in China began with Robert Morrison, of London Missionary Society, who first set foot in Canton in 1807. Over the centuries, the Western missionaries and Chinese believers were engaged in the enterprise of the translation, publication, and distribution of a large corpus of Christian literature in Chinese. While the extensive distribution of Chinese publications facilitated the propagation of Christianity, the Christian messages have been subtly re-presented, re-appropriated, and transformed by these works of Chinese Christian literature. This Special Issue entitled “Christian Literature in Chinese Contexts” examines the multifarious dimensions of the production, translation, circulation, and reception of Christian literature (with “Christian” and “literature” in their broadest sense) against the cultural and sociopolitical contexts from the Tang period to modern China. The eight articles in this volume cover a variety of intriguing topics, including the literary/translation endeavors of Western missionaries in Chinese, the indigenous works of the Chinese Christians, the interaction between the Christian and Chinese literary traditions, Chinese reception of the Bible, and numerous other relevant concepts.

Abstract

Witchcraft and magic are topics of enduring interest for many reasons. The main one lies in their extraordinary interdisciplinarity: anthropologists, folklorists, historians, and more have contributed to build a body of work of extreme variety and consistence. Of course, this also means that the subjects themselves are not easy to assess. In a very general way, we can define witchcraft as a supernatural means to cause harm, death, or misfortune, while magic also belongs to the field of supernatural, or at least esoteric knowledge, but can be used to less dangerous effects (e.g., divination and astrology). In Western civilization, however, the witch hunt has set a very peculiar perspective in which diabolical witchcraft, the invention of the Sabbat, the persecution of many thousands of (mostly) female and (sometimes) male presumed witches gave way to a phenomenon that is fundamentally different from traditional witchcraft. This Special Issue of Religions dedicated to Witchcraft, Demonology, and Magic features nine articles that deal with four different regions of Europe (England, Germany, Hungary, and Italy) between Late Medieval and Modern times in different contexts and social milieus. Far from pretending to offer a complete picture, they focus on some topics that are central to the research in those fields and fit well in the current “cumulative concept of Western witchcraft” that rules out all mono-causality theories, investigating a plurality of causes.
