Monty Python Speaks! Revised and Updated Edition The Complete Oral History

Monty Python Speaks! Revised and Updated Edition The Complete Oral History

Author: DAVID MORGAN Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/01/2019

The complete oral history of Monty Python - one of comedy's most legendary and influential troupes - publishing to coincide with the 50th anniversary of their BBC debut. With a foreword by John Oliver from Last Week Tonight `Some people think it's very clever and intelligent, and some people say it's extremely silly and inconsequential, but not many people ignore it' Michael Palin With their dead parrots, holy grails and spam, Monty Python revolutionised comedy for the rest of the world. They paved the way for everything from Saturday Night Live to The Young Ones and The Simpsons, ushering in a new brand of surrealist comedy: a stream-of-consciousness sketch show that pushed the boundaries of format, style and content. Its legacy is not only important; it's monumental. In Monty Python Speaks!, David Morgan has extensively interviewed the entire world of Python - from producers and collaborators like Douglas Adams and Hank Azaria to the founding members themselves - to create the ultimate record of Britain's most rebellious and successful comedy act. Packed with rare and never-before-seen photographs, and told with the group's customary wit and irreverence, this newly updated edition, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of their first appearance on the BBC, is the inside story of a comedy phenomenon.

The Forge of Vision A Visual History of Modern Christianity

The Forge of Vision A Visual History of Modern Christianity

Author: DAVID MORGAN Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/11/2015

Religions teach their adherents how to see and feel at the same time; learning to see is not a disembodied process but one hammered from the forge of human need, social relations, and material practice. David Morgan argues that the history of religions may therefore be studied through the lens of their salient visual themes. The Forge of Vision tells the history of Christianity from the sixteenth century through the present by selecting the visual themes of faith that have profoundly influenced its development. After exploring how distinctive Catholic and Protestant visual cultures emerged in the early modern period, Morgan examines a variety of Christian visual practices, ranging from the imagination, visions of nationhood, the likeness of Jesus, the material life of words, and the role of modern art as a spiritual quest, to the importance of images for education, devotion, worship, and domestic life. An insightful, informed presentation of how Christianity has shaped and continues to shape the modern world, this work is a must-read for scholars and students across fields of religious studies, history, and art history.

The Embodied Eye Religious Visual Culture and the Social Life of Feeling

The Embodied Eye Religious Visual Culture and the Social Life of Feeling

Author: DAVID MORGAN Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/02/2012

David Morgan builds on his previous groundbreaking work to offer this new, systematically integrated theory of the study of religion as visual culture. Providing key tools for scholars across disciplines studying the materiality of religions, Morgan gives an accessibly written theoretical overview including case studies of the ways seeing is related to touching, hearing, feeling, and such ephemeral experiences as dreams, imagination, and visions. The case studies explore both the high and low of religious visual culture: Catholic traditions of the erotic Sacred Heart of Jesus, the unrecognizability of the Virgin in the Fatima apparitions, the prehistory of Warner Sallman's face of Jesus, and more. Basing the study of religious images and visual practices in the relationship between seeing and the senses, Morgan argues against reductionist models of the gaze , demonstrating that vision is not something that occurs in abstraction, but is a fundamental way of embodying the human self.
