El judaísmo desde sus orígenes hasta la corriente ortodoxa moderna

El judaísmo desde sus orígenes hasta la corriente ortodoxa moderna

Autor: Mikael Eskelner , Tobias Lanslor , Yuri Galbinst

Número de Páginas: 397

Los orígenes del judaísmo según la visión histórica actual, a diferencia del relato religioso descrito en el texto de la Biblia hebrea, se encuentran en la Edad del Bronce en medio de las antiguas religiones semíticas politeístas, que evolucionaron específicamente a partir del politeísmo cananeo antiguo, entonces coexistiendo con la religión babilónica, y sincretizar elementos de la fe babilónica en la adoración de Yahvé como se refleja en los primeros libros proféticos de la Biblia hebrea. El judaísmo ortodoxo moderno (también ortodoxo moderno u ortodoxia moderna) es un movimiento dentro del judaísmo ortodoxo que intenta sintetizar los valores judíos y la observancia de la ley judía con el mundo secular y moderno. La ortodoxia moderna se basa en varias enseñanzas y filosofías y, por lo tanto, asume varias formas. En los Estados Unidos, y en general en el mundo occidental,La ortodoxia centrista sustentada por la filosofía de la Torá Umadda (Torá y conocimiento científico) prevalece. En Israel, la ortodoxia moderna está dominada por el sionismo religioso; sin embargo, aunque no son idénticos, estos movimientos comparten muchos de los mismos valores y...

Aquí Estamos-- --ya Nos Vamos

Aquí Estamos-- --ya Nos Vamos

Autor: Francisco J. Bustos , Michael Cheno Wickert

Número de Páginas: 100

Francisco Bustos eloquently writes of Colonia Ruiz Cortinez and Barrio San Ysidro, waiting in la linea to be scrutinized by U.S. Customs officials, and of the bi-national journey of living both in the United States and Mxico. His melodic tone defies the fast-paced world of schedules, while being actively engaged in the moment, and then fleeting down another street to encounter another tale. As es la vida qu no?, Bustos says, As es. Michael Cheno Wickert focuses mainly on living in the barrios of Southeast San Diego where life often turns toward violence and suspicion is commonplace. It is a place where identities are shattered and reconfigured from the broken pieces into a kaleidoscope. It is a land of churches, liquor stores, and taco shops. It is where paint, blood, sweat, and salsa drip from the body and splat on weather-worn sidewalks to tell the stories of an America often ignored.

Libra

Libra

Autor: Don Delillo

Número de Páginas: 456

In this powerful, eerily convincing fictional speculation on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Don DeLillo chronicles Lee Harvey Oswald's odyssey from troubled teenager to a man of precarious stability who imagines himself an agent of history. When "history" presents itself in the form of two disgruntled CIA operatives who decide that an unsuccessful attempt on the life of the president will galvanize the nation against communism, the scales are irrevocably tipped. A gripping, masterful blend of fact and fiction, alive with meticulously portrayed characters both real and created, Libra is a grave, haunting, and brilliant examination of an event that has become an indelible part of the American psyche.

Nota

Nota

Autor: Martin Corless-smith

Número de Páginas: 12

Nota is part travelogue and part philosophical examination. Corless-Smith here makes a compendium: layers of reference, of history, of text over text over text. Invented and real figures watch over a Self who admits to a history beyond the moment of simple consumption. The setting is an England in its Golden Age, a homesick construction to be consumed, with pleasure, in the discomfiting knowledge of its artificiality.

Zenobia

Zenobia

Autor: Gellu Naum

Número de Páginas: 216

A full-length novel by a member of the Romanian literary avant-garde, Zenobia is the evocation of the singular quest of a Surrealist knight-errant who strives to be true to the gentle demands of his lady in a landscape of snares, desolation, incipient madness, and material poverty magically interrupted by moments of extreme beauty. Love, in all its intimate, carnal communion, lights the path through the dark forest, the streets of Bucharest, and the desert swamps. The narrator, speaking from the depths of love and despair, invites the reader to share his quest.

Ha Ha

Ha Ha

Autor: Andrew Jordan

Número de Páginas: 97

These poems explore the remnants of a system of ancient narrative trackways that criss-cross the landscapes of south and south west England. These flows of energy underpin the hermetics of enclosure. They are explored here for the first time. This book might be a strategy - a self help manual for the ontologically dispossessed - or just an encouragement to trespass in the newly enclosed purlieu of the self. Tell it how you want, emblematic landscapes - and how we perceive them - can mirror identity and relationship, creating a cultural space within which both can become tenable.

Nuestra Señora de la Noche

Nuestra Señora de la Noche

Autor: Mayra Santos-febres

Número de Páginas: 368

Doña Isabel Luberza Oppenheimer es una de las mujeres más poderosas, respetadas y temidas de su ciudad. Pero no siempre ha sido así. Isabel La Negra, Isabelita, fue una niña abandonada por su madre, que trabajaba de lavandera, y a los ocho años ya servía como criada en una casa noble de la ciudad hasta que, en su pubertad, el señor quiso meterse en su cama y se vio obligada a trabajar como costurera primero y vendedora de licor ilegal después. La historia de Isabel es la historia de una lucha descarnada por ascender socialmente, sobreponerse a la desgracia y obtener el respeto de los suyos y la independencia y libertad que da el dinero. Ambientada en el Puerto Rico de los años treinta, es también la historia de su renuncia al amor de un hombre de ojos verdes de muy diferente clase social a la suya.

Rosario Tijeras

Rosario Tijeras

Autor: Jorge Franco

Número de Páginas: 188

"Since they shot her at point-blank range while she was being kissed, she confused the pain of love with that of death." Rosario Tijeras is the violent, violated character at the center of Jorge Franco's study of contrasts, set in self-destructing 1980s Medellín. Her very name-evoking the rosary, and scissors-bespeaks her conflict as a woman who becomes a contract killer to insulate herself from the random violence of the streets. Then she is shot, gravely wounded, and the circle of contradiction is closed. From the corridors of the hospital where Rosario is fighting for her life, Antonio, the narrator, waits to learn if she will recover. Through him, we reconstruct the friendship between the two, her love story with Emilio, and her life as a hitwoman. Rosario Tijeras has been recognized as an admirable continuation of a literary subject that was first treated by Gabriel García Márquez and then by Fernando Vallejo. A work in the Latin American social realist tradition, Rosario Tijeras is told in fast and vibrant prose and with poetic flourish.
