Holgate from Montreal (in 1930) and Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald from Winnipeg (in 1932). The essential character of the group�s style and approach to landscape painting was in evidence well before their official formation in 1920, and some of their most important pictures also pre-date that first exhibition The object of this study is to examine the international cooperative activities of SHINSHUKYO and KYOHA-SHINTO since the 80's.

In particular the improvement of keels and moveable sails allowed ships to sail more closely to the wind making the ships more maneuverable and providing a wider variety of directions the ship could take.

New trading routes were secured which led to increased competition in trade and wider availability of exotic products , e.g. This presentation intends to summarize the studies on the Passion Narratives from the 19th century up to the contemporary period, by taking into consideration the above-mentioned social and ideological backgrounds. Localizing Buddhism in the Japanese Cultic Context: A Ritual Approach While it is difficult to speak of a single 'European' approach to Japanese Buddhism, it may be noted that its study in European institutions has been mainly carried out as part of Japanese studies rather than 'Buddhology.' In the mid-nineteenth century there already was in Europe a specific knowledge of the Japanese Buddhist pantheon and an interest in its ritual use, as the collections of von Siebold in The Netherlands and Guimet in France demonstrate , e.g.
Colonies were important in this scenario not only as sources of raw materials for the factories in the mother country, but also as outlets for finished products , e.g. They first exhibited together at Robert Henri�s instigation at the Macbeth Galleries, New York, in February 1908, following the rejection of works by George Luks, Everett Shinn, William J , cited: Composers include Palestrina, Monteverdi and William Byrd.

The nature of negotiated borders will be explored, as well the impact of power dynamics on nations south of the United States.

Mackintosh and seen in the work of the members of the Vienna Secession, and the intricate curvilinear style of French and Belgian designers, such as Hector Guimard. Mackintosh’s style of Art Nouveau was to influence the Wiener Werkstatte Robertson analyzes motets 1-20 as a spiritual journey corresponding to the contemporaneous writing of Henry Suso. Motets 11-14 function as the ninth step: longing and searching for God/wisdom but not always succeeding. Motet 13 is not well represented in the general body of Machaut scholarship, and even within such focused discussion of groupings, motet 13 is curiously missing What is central to inductive arguments such as the above is that specific instances are used as evidence for a universal conclusion. That is, the premises only tell us about two rocks, and the conclusion generalizes about all similar rocks; as such the conclusion goes well beyond the information contained in the premises. This means that the conclusion does not follow with absolute necessity, but only with a specific degree of probability. ����������� Bacon argues that induction is much more suitable for science than deduction is
When understood to refer to an inner zone of private experience and feeling, the political rhetorics of "religion" and "faith" should be studied as techniques of governance, not as neutrally descriptive names given to pre-existent things existing in the world or in the human heart Marxist Communism: Both of the foregoing groups believed in the gradual, peaceful, evolutionary process of socialization; that is, using existing political processes to introduce incremental changes.

In this presentation, I want to clarify this problem through examining the theory of religious language of Paul Ricoeur. Materials transmitted at Shinto shrines represent important basic materials in the study of Shinto. Viewed from the social position of shrines, however, these materials are relevant not only to Shinto in the narrow sense, but to research in a broad range of other areas as well, from social, political, and economic history, to literature and the arts , cited: This process of community development in the Philippines can be historically traced with the coming of the Spanish Missionaries, namely the Augustinians, Franciscans, and the Dominicans. This paper attempts to show how the Spanish Missionaries arrived in the province of Nueva Vizcaya, in the Northern portion of the Philippines Huayan Philosophy and Anarchism at the Dawn of the Chinese Revolution: with Special Reference to Zhang Taiyan and Liu Shipei It is a well known fact that most reformers and revolutionaries of the late Qing Dynasty took a great interest in Buddhism. The Huayan Philosophy and the Mind-only Theory were very popular among intellectuals in this period. Why were such old philosophies used as ideologies for social reform , e.g. There they were to be "purged" of those sins in preparation for salvation.
