Ascetic Culture

Essays in Honor of Philip Rousseau

Blake Leyerle

Ascetic Culture honors Philip Rousseau’s pathbreaking work on early Christian asceticism in a series of essays exploring how quickly the industrious and imaginative practitioners of asceticism, from the early fourth through the mid-fifth century, adapted the Greco-Roman social, literary, and religious culture in which they had been raised. Far from rejecting the life of the urban centers of the ancient world, they refined and elaborated that life in their libraries, households, and communities. The volume begins with a discussion of Egyptian monastic reading programs and the circulation of texts, especially the hugely influential Life of Antony. A second group of essays engages the topic of disciplinary culture in ascetic spaces such as the monastery, the household, and the city. A third group focuses on the topic of imaginary landscapes and ascetic self-fashioning. Ascetic Culture concludes by surveying the scholarly study of asceticism over the last one hundred and fifty years, arguing that previous generations of scholars have regarded asceticism either as a product of the inner dynamism of early Christianity or as a distortion of its earliest aims. Together, the contributors recognize, reflect upon, and extend the themes explored in Rousseau’s work on early Christianity’s ascetic periphery—a region whose inhabitants reflect in various ways the aspirations of their religion, from the daily to the otherworldly.

Ascetics, Authority, and the Church in the Age of Jerome and Cassian

Second Edition

Philip Rousseau

In his Ascetics, Authority, and the Church in the Age of Jerome and Cassian, published in 1978, Philip Rousseau presented a survey of asceticism in the western church until about 400, including a selective study of Jerome, and then, moving into the fifth century, a reading of Sulpicius and Cassian. Rousseau explored such societal changes as the eventual triumph of the cenobitic movement and its growing effect within the church, not least on the episcopate. He focused primarily on the development among ascetics of a certain concept of spiritual authority; on the attraction of that concept for a wider audience; and on its enduring formulation within a literary tradition of great influence. For this second edition, Rousseau has supplied a new introduction with extensive bibliographical references in which he charts the ways in which scholarship on early Christian asceticism has developed since his compelling and influential original argument.

Atlas historique des pratiques religieuses

Le Sud-Ouest du Québec au XIXe siècle

Louis Rousseau

Au moment où le Québec s’intégrait aux circuits commerciaux internationaux et préparait son entrée dans l’industrialisation, un vaste changement socio-culturel plaçait la religion au cœur des conduites et de l’image que se fait le peuple de ce monde en changement. L’Atlas historique des pratiques religieuses étudie le Sud-Ouest du Québec, qui abrite maintenant les deux tiers de la population québécoise, au moment où se déroulent, entre 1820 et 1880, les phases d’un véritable réveil religieux. Par le moyen des cartes, de graphiques et de tableaux liés au texte des planches, on observe dans cet atlas le mouvement d’ensemble qui modifia les attitudes et les conduites religieuses populaires. Voici quelques-uns des thèmes présentés à partir d’informations inédites tirées d’archives religieuses : salaire des curés, nombre d’auberges et de maisons closes, capitalisation des paroisses, découpage des frontières des paroisses, transformations démographiques, fréquentation scolaire, pratique du jeûne et de la communion pascale, campagnes de tempérance, zones à forte pénétration protestante, architecture des églises, dévotions, paroisses fécondes en prêtres ou en sœurs. Voici, enfin, le portrait contrasté des transformations religieuses qui ont donné à la société québécoise, il y a un siècle, un fort sentiment de sa valeur et de sa sécurité. Ce surprenant tableau historique relance la question de la place du facteur religieux à l’ère où s’impose l’idéal du progrès.

Augustine for the Philosophers

The Rhetor of Hippo, the Confessions, and the Continentals

Calvin L. Troup

St. Augustine of Hippo, largely considered the greatest thinker of Christian antiquity, has long dominated theological conversations. Augustine’s legacy as a theologian endures. However, Augustine’s contributions to rhetoric and the philosophy of communication remain relatively uncharted. Augustine for the Philosophers recovers these contributions, revisiting Augustine's prominence in the work of continental philosophers who shaped rhetoric and the philosophy of communication in the twentieth century. Hannah Arendt, Albert Camus, Jacques Ellul, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Martin Heidegger, Edmund Husserl, Jean-François Lyotard, and Paul Ricoeur are paired with Augustine in significant conversations close to the center of their work. Augustine for the Philosophers dares to hold Augustine’s rhetoric and philosophy in dynamic tension with his Christianity, provoking serious reconsideration of Augustine, his presence in twentieth-century continental thought, and his influence upon modern rhetoric and communication studies.
