Actividad teatral en la region de Madrid segun los protocolos de Juan Garcia de Albertos, 1634-1660: I Estudio y documentos : Introduction and Documents 1-249

In 1639 the Madrid notary Juan Garcia de Albertos was appointed Escribano de la Comision de las comedias - official theatre notary. His annual registers of contracts (protocolos) contain more than two thousand items related to actors and theatrical activity from 1634 to 1660. This exceptionally rich collection of documents offers a fascinating overview of theatrical life, in all its diversity, in Madrid and the surrounding area during the age of Calderon. Especially plentiful are the contracts for performances at festivities in towns and villages, both by professional companies and by local amateurs assisted by individual actresses and musicians hired in Madrid. This extraordinary degree of theatrical activity in even the smallest communities, almost entirely neglected hitherto, forces us to revise and expand our conventional picture of the Spanish Golden Age theatre. The collection also reveals in abundant detail the composition and working practices of acting companies, especially in the numerous asientos (actors' employment contracts), as well as transport conditions, costume hire, staging practices and repertory. The actors' convoluted and often precarious finances are an ever-present theme. The documents are accompanied by appendices and maps, and the extensive introduction provides an exhaustive survey of what can be learned from this remarkable source. CHARLES DAVIS was formerly Lecturer in Spanish at Queen Mary, University of London, and is currently a Ramon y Cajal Research Fellow at the University of Valencia. The late J. E. VAREY was Professor of Spanish at the University of London and Principal of Westfield College. For description in Spanish see Volume II. Actividad Teatral en la Region de Madrid is published in TWO VOLUMES (I: ISBN 1855660628, II ISBN 1855660792) WHICH MUST BE PURCHASED AS A SET.

Cambridge Studies in Ideology and Religion Religion and the Making of Society: Essays in Social Theology

Author: Charles Davis Format: Hardback Release Date: 18/11/1993

In this book a leading contemporary theologian investigates the relation between religion and society. Professor Davis begins with the thesis that society is a product of human agency; this raises immediately the questions of the meaning of modernity and of the function of religion in that context. The linguistic and pragmatic orientation of modern philosophy and social theory lead to a discussion of religious language and of praxis.Whether modernity is an incomplete project, as Habermas would have it, or a mistaken universalism, as the post-moderns maintain, is debated under the heading of human identity, both individual and collective, and in an examination of the formation of the modern self. The practical relevance of the theoretical analyses comes to the fore in a critique of Michael Novak's attempt to make 'democratic capitalism' an ideal. Professor Davis shows that, paradoxically, the post-modern rejection of secularity can be interpreted as a return from the secular to the supernatural.
