Saint Seraphim of Sarov (1759-1833) is one of the most renowned Russian monks in the Orthodox Church and is generally considered the greatest of the 19th century elders. Seraphim is most remembered today for the monastic teachings of contemplation, theoria and self-denial to the layperson, and he taught that the purpose of the Christian life was to acquire the Holy Spirit. Seraphim was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church in 1903, and Pope John Paul II referred to him as a saint in his book, Crossing the Threshold of Hope. On Acquisition of the Holy Spirit is a short narrative full of meaning and soul searching that invites readers to try to find the Holy Spirit through thought and prayer, meditating upon grace, the meaning of being a Christian, and the presence of the Holy Spirit throughout history.
Say the Sounds The Taming of the Shrew is unique among Shakespeare's plays and is a perennial and compelling success in the theatre. Its reception is marked, however, by ongoing polarized debate over the meaning On Acquisition of the Holy Spirit free pdf and worth of the play. This edition disengages Shakespeare's exuberant and disturbing marital farce from the tangled history of its reception. It views the two sixteenth-century Shrew plays as textually independent but theatrically interdependent and so includes the full text of The Taming of A Shrew in an appendix. While the Introduction and Commentary focus on the critical and theatrical debate surrounding the play, the original and comprehensive editing of the playtext makes available a 'different' Shrew, more open to the reader's interpretation than is usually the case. Barbara Hodgdon is a distinguished feminist scholar whose reading of the play offers a stimulating array of ideas and questions about this enduringly popular yet challenging comedy.
