Poetic circumstances would be crowded around it ; time would be lengthened or
cut short; exploits divided by long intervals would follow in immediate sequence ;
the favourite heroes would rise to the most disproportionate magnitude ; enemies
would be raised or depressed as might suit the design of the poet. Popular belief,
popular traditions, popular worship, national monuments, would thus
commemorate, not the real event, but the poetic version of it ; but though all the
foliage and ...

24 E XPLORING P ROTESTANT T RADITIONS can readily understand how and
why someone within a particular tradition can hold beliefs and engage in
practices that might seem strange or wrong to those outside that tradition. The
theological beliefs that characterize a tradition are conclusions that one could
readily expect, given the particular historical background and methodological
approach of the tradition. This is not to suggest some kind of theological
determinism whereby any ...

It is true that a strange twist of fate has pushed me into an academic career
teaching university courses on the history of religion as well as a few other
subjects. It is also true that in these pages you will find references to individuals
and practices from many religious traditions that may not exactly be common
knowledge to those readers who have better things to do than pore through
impossibly thick volumes on the topic. But make no mistake about it—this is not
an academic work.

It is common in studies concerned with the past of Native American traditions to
begin with the peopling of the Americas. Upon reflection, this is a strange custom.
I do not recall a history of religion in Britain beginning with the peopling of the
British Isles. In any case, it cannot be done, because we do not know who first
peopled those islands and when. And the same is true for the Americas. Homo
sapiens have been here as long as they have in northern Europe. While it is
obvious from ...

Catherine Cornille Any dialogue between religions involves some degree of
judgment of what is true or false, interesting or banal, valuable or futile, admirable
or repulsive, appealing or strange in the other religion. Such judgments have
been operative consciously or unconsciously, implicitly or explicitly throughout
the history of encounter between religions. They have been manifest in the ways
in which religions have borrowed symbols, teachings, and practices from other
religions, ...

But actions by black preachers during Reconstruction — and even in southern
cities of the "nadir" — suggest anything but "otherworldli- ness." And political
action in the 1980s and 1990s by self-styled "Christian" and essentially
conservative activists — people every bit as conscious of the divine as their
religious predecessors — suggests that the religious understanding of
southerners is worldly indeed. Neither of these examples is an aberration. The
entire history of religion in the ...
