Karen Armstrong,: The Great Transformation : The Beginning of Our Religious Traditions

The Great Transformation : The Beginning of Our Religious Traditions


Description

From Karen Armstrong, the bestselling author of "A History of God" and "The Spiral Staircase," comes this extraordinary investigation of a critical moment in the evolution of religious thought.In the ninth century BCE, events in four regions of the civilized world led to the rise of religious traditions that have endured to the present day--the development of Confucianism and Daoism in China, Hinduism and Buddhism in India, monotheism in Israel, and philosophical rationalism in Greece. Armstrong, one of our most prominent religious scholars, examines how these traditions began in response to the violence of their time. Studying figures as diverse as the Buddha and Socrates, Confucius and Jeremiah, Armstrong reveals how these still enduring philosophies can help address our contemporary problems.

In this eighth and final book of the Rose Years series, Rose has become an independent young woman. She leaves RockyRidge Farm, first for Kansas City to learn how to be a telegrapher, then for San Francisco. Her dream is to work for ayear The Great Transformation : The Beginning of Our Religious Traditions download book or two, save a little money, and then marry Paul Cooley, her childhood sweetheart. But the big city has all sorts ofsurprises in store for Rose, and she finds that she's destined to travel a road she never even imagined. Skulls, butterflies, hunting trophies, ancient Egyptian artifacts, the alleged skeletons of mythological creatures and many other mysterious oddities fill the shelves of cabinets of curiosities. A centuries old tradition that developed in Europe during the Renaissance, the curiosity cabinet is again in fashion. Shops, restaurants and private residences echo these cabinets in their interior design, either by making use of the eclectic vintage objects commonly featured in such collections or by including the fully stocked cabinets themselves. For many, it seems, the smooth surfaces of modern design have lost their allure. An article in the New York Times, titled "the New Antiquarians," describes a current trend in interior design that embraces a "new vintage" look. This style makes use of an eclectic combination of objects: taxidermy, mounted antlers, ancestral portraits, old leather books and cabinets filled with collections. You've seen this style of decor invade restaurants, bars and hotels. It's featured in magazines like GQ and blogs like the "A Continuous Lean."
