Medieval and Early Modern Film and Media Book Description :

Medieval and Early Modern Film and Media contextualizes historical films in an innovative way - not only relating them to the history of cinema, but also to premodern and early modern media. This philological approach to the (pre)history of cinema engages both old media such as scrolls, illuminated manuscripts, the Bayeux Tapestry, and new digital media such as DVDs, HD DVDs, and computers. Burt examines the uncanny repetitions that now fragment films into successively released alternate cuts and extras (footnote tracks, audiocommentaries, and documentaries) that (re)structure and reframe historical films, thereby presenting new challenges to historicist criticism and film theory. With a double focus on recursive narrative frames and the cinematic pa...

Raped on the Railway a True Story of a Lady Who Was First Ravished and Then Chastised on the Scotch Express Book Description :

Raped on the Railway is a late-Victorian tale of sex and flagellation. Brandon, a married painter, takes advantage of a young lady on the Scotch Express. Her brother-in-law, who is also on the train, suspects her of consenting to her ravisher's advances and punishes her severely for the perceived slight to his family's honour. First published c. 1899 with the false imprint date 1894, Raped on the Railway was issued, most probably by Charles Carrington in Paris, on hand made paper in a limited edition of 300 copies with wrappers depicting a rape scene. The illustration is signed A. Lambrecht. Adolphe Lambrecht illustrated Carrington's translation of The Mysteries of Verbena House (1882): Les Mysteres de la Maison de la Verveine (1901).

Millennial Missionaries Book Description :

Millennials in the U.S. have been characterized as uninterested in religion, as defectors from religious institutions, and as agnostic about the role of religious identity in their culture. Amid the rise of so-called "nones," though, there has also been a countervailing trend: an increase in religious piety among some millennial Catholics. The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), which began evangelizing college students on American university campuses in 1998, hires recent college graduates to evangelize college students and promote an attractive and culturally savvy Catholicism. These millennial Catholics have personal relationships with Jesus, attend Mass daily, and know and defend papal teachings, while also being immersed in U.S. ...

Movie Medievalism Book Description :

This work offers a theoretical introduction to the portrayal of medievalism in popular film. Employing the techniques of film criticism and theory, it moves beyond the simple identification of error toward a poetics of this type of film, sensitive to both cinema history and to the role these films play in constructing what the author terms the “medieval imaginary.” The opening two chapters introduce the rapidly burgeoning field of medieval film studies, viewed through the lenses of Lacanian psychoanalysis and the Deleuzian philosophy of the time-image. The first chapter explores how a vast array of films (including both auteur cinema and popular movies) contributes to the modern vision of life in the Middle Ages, while the second is concerned wit...
