    The Sea of Faith: Christianity in Change (SIGNED COPY) by Cupitt, Don

    BBC, London, 1985. Reprint. Grey Cloth. Fine/Near Fine. Illustrator: Photo's. Signed by Author. gilt titles spine; profusely illustrated throughout by colour & b/w. photo's.; "On Dover beach in the 1860s, Matthew Arnold found an image of the decline of religion, the 'melancholy, long, withdrawing roar' of the Sea of Faith. Twenty years later Nietzsche was proclaiming the death of God. Neither was saying anything essentially novel. For centuries changes in science, in historical thinking and in philosophy, set in motion by thinkers such as Galileo, Descartes, Kant and Hegel, had been eroding cherished beliefs - in a moral world­order, in another world beyond this one, in the very possibility of absolute knowledge or exclusive truth. When traditional dogmas have been dissolved away, we find ourselves quite alone, with no resources but those we can muster from within ourselves. But there is also another story. In this important book, based on his BBC television series, Don Cupitt argues that over the same period a new tide has begun to flow; a profound mutation has been taking place as religion breaks free from the outworn supernatural beliefs that at present stifle it. He shows the change in process in a variety of thinkers, including Kierkegaard, Albert Schweitzer, Jung and Wittgenstein. Accepting the twentieth-century's bleak view of man's place in the Universe, including the view that religion itself is simply human, Don Cupitt proposes that Christianity should now be practised without dogma, as a spiritual path, an ethic, and a way of giving meaning to life. It is a controversial idea, but Cupitt argues here that such a transformation is already under way."

    HISTORIA PAPATUS. Novissimo Historiae Lutheranismi & Calvinismi fabro kata biaion reposita. Qua Ecclesiae Romanae, septem Periodis distinctae, origo & progressus, ad nostra usque tempora, pertexitur by HEIDEGGER, Johann Heinrich

    Amsterdam: printed by Heinricum Wetstenium, 1684. Very good+. 4to (8.1", 20.6 cm). [28], 598, 40, [20] pp. Complete. First edition: The preeminent Swiss theologian of his time (not the 20th-century philosopher), Heidegger (1633-1698) was a professor of Hebrew, philosophy, dogmatics and ecclesiastical history, moral philosophy and theology. This is a chief example of his influential writings, which were largely leveled against the Roman Catholic Church; though not antagonistic, all his works were on the list of forbidden books. The Protestant Reformation sought to end church injustices and hierarchies and sought secular religion, priests relieved of celibacy, and dismissed opulence. Post-reformation, Heidegger sought to unify the Swiss Reformed churches, still organized as separate entities. Also, the Age of Enlightenment of the 17th century, characterized by the scientific revolution, philosophers widely circulating their ideas, printed books and pamphlets, served to undermine the authority of the monarchy and the church.
