Buddhist and Islamic Orders in Southern Asia: Comparative Perspectives

by R. Michael Feener

Over the last few decades historians and other scholars have succeeded in identifying diverse patterns of connection linking religious communities across Asia and beyond. Yet despite the fruits of this specialist research, scholars in the subfields of Islamic and Buddhist studies have rarely engaged with each other to share investigative approaches and methods of interpretation. This volume was conceived to open up new spaces of creative interaction between scholars in both fields that will increase our understanding of the circulation and localization of religious texts, institutional models, ritual practices, and literary specialists.The book’s approach is to scrutinize one major dimension of the history of religion in Southern Asia: religious orders. “Orders” (here referring to Su...

The Grand Civilization, Ancient Egypt's Profound Mysteries: The Esoteric Sources of Their Knowledge

by M.G. Hawking

Penetrate one of the Great Mysteries of the Ages...Few mysteries have captured the fascination of enlightened minds so much as the epic civilization of Ancient Egypt. The "discovery" of Egypt is one of the most brilliant chapters in archaeology. The Middle Ages knew of Egypt only as a Roman colony; the Renaissance presumed that civilization had begun with Greece; even the Enlightenment knew nothing of Ancient Egypt beyond the Pyramids. Egyptology was a by-product of Napoleonic imperialism. When the Corsican led a French expedition to Egypt in 1798 he took with him scholars interested in Egypt for the sake of a better understanding of history. It was those men who returned home with the greatest mystery of the ages in their grasp, and first revealed the magnificent temples of Luxor and Karn...

An American Adviser in Vietnam: My Story

by Lt. Col. (Ret) Joe A. Putnam

Putnam perfectly captures the action, the people, the battles, and of course the mixed feelings of a young man far away from home in a foreign land.Most of all, even now, Putnam wonders why he survived numerous harrowing episodes when others did not....

Journey of a Lost Manuscript: The rediscovery in Warrnambool of a Sixteenth Century manuscript believed destroyed by fire

by Lorraine Smith

A true story. To interested onlookers at the Tudor court, the birth of a second daughter to Henry VIII, one of the most powerful kings England has ever knows, was a non-event. That she would rise to be their queen was unthinkable. But Elizabeth I reigned for almost forty-five years and was loved by her subjects. Halfway through her reign, in a rural location in West Yorkshire, a scribe acknowledged Elizabeth as monarch on the document he was preparing. He couldn't know his words would be read by people more than four centuries later on the other side of the world. When the old parchment was found inside a copy of Alice in Wonderland in a second hand bookshop, everything about it was a mystery. Discovered to be an Elizabethan manuscript, this is the enthralling story of its travels from Gil...
