On Liturgical Theology
Nearly everything that theologians write on liturgy, Father Kavanagh notes, is often called liturgical theology, although on closer examination such works appear to be either dogmatic theologies about the liturgy or systematic theologies making use of liturgical data. None truly reflects how liturgy shapes theology or is theology or even relates to theology. This work is Father Kavanagh's effort to substantiate the existence of a truly liturgical theology. It will raise almost as many questions as it answers; but it will also further insight into theology and liturgy as it assays their relationship.

The Great Sophists in Periclean Athens
'a brilliant introduction to the Sophists of fifth-century Athens and a major reinterpretation of the goals and effects of their thought. Engagingly written, this eminently accessible account deserves lasting popularity.' Choice 'This is a fine work, indispensable for any study of Socrates, the Sophists or Plato . . . the interest of de Romilly's book lies not only with the combination of enthusiasm and sound scholarship in the use of a wide range of texts, but also in the general and continuing problems of dialogue between thinkers ahead of their times and their contemporary public.' Phronesis 'a vigorous and stimulating book which richly deserves to be made available to an English-speaking readership.' Classical Review 'now available in this smooth and readable translation . . . a lively and engaging introduction to the Sophistic movement. While Great Sophists is written primarily for a general educated audience, scholars will find much of interest in de Romilly's reconstruction of the age of the Sophists. De Romilly deserves much credit for bringing a remarkable immediacy to the subject . . . Classicists and the general public should appreciate this new and controversial assessment of the Sophistic movement.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review 'It was a happy idea of the Oxford University Press to commission an English translation from Janet Lloyd, the premier translator of major French work in ancient Greek cultural studies . . . Lloyd's version is not merely accurate and fluent but faithful also to the effervescent (lan of the original' Times Literary Supplement 'compelling . . . Exquisite nuance informs both writing and translation' Religious Studies Review
Winner of the 2004 Prix de Flore—one of France's most distinguished literary prizes—a wildly romantic, true-life love story “History follows a trail of sputtering desire, often calling upon the delusions of lovers to generate the sparks. If it weren’t for us, the world would suffer from a dismal lack of stories," writes Bruce Benderson in this brutally candid memoir. “What astonishes and intrigues is Benderson’s way of recounting, in the sweetest possible voice, things that are considered shocking,” wrote Le Monde. What’s so shocking? It’s not just Benderson’s job translating Céline Dion’s saccharine autobiography, which he admits is driving him mad; but his unrequited love for an impoverished Romanian in “cheap club-kid platforms with dollar signs in his squinting eyes,” whom he meets while on a journalism assignment in Eastern Europe. Rather than retreat, Benderson absorbs everything he can about Romanian culture and discovers an uncanny similarity between his own obsession for the Romanian (named Romulus) and the disastrous love affair of King Carol II, the last king of Romania (1893-1953). Throughout, Benderson—“absolutely free of bitterness, nastiness, or any desire to protect himself,” wrote Le Monde—is sustained by little white codeine pills, a poetic self-awareness, a sense of humor, and an unwavering belief in the perfect romance, even as wild dogs chase him down Romanian streets.
