that had been made by Hobbes in The Elements when he affirmed ‘That subjects are not bound to follow their private judgments in controversies of religion’ ( Chapter 6 , p. II), and ‘That subjects are not bound to follow the judgment of any authority in controversies of religion which is not dependent on the sovereign power’ ( Chapter 7 , p. II). God had inscribed moral law into men to let them

Part I Religion, metaphysics and ethics Culture – pseudo-culture1 Ernst Mach. Even when man2 still lived in the depths of caves and in the forest canopy, starving and in permanent fear, his primordial imagination was already crowding his mind with all manner of apparitions. The swirling night-time fog would frighten him, as would the shadows of the clouds scudding silently by. His scarcity-afflicted nature was troubled by the constant agitation occasioned by hunger, and everywhere he suspected bloodthirsty creatures were prowling around. In animals he saw

11 Facebook and the origins of religion Daniel Miller Anthropology is not just an academic discipline; it is inevitably also a particular perspective on the world that orientates our vision differently from, for example, psychology. When a non-academic asks an anthropologist to explain what they do and hears that we study people, they will often follow that up by saying that surely this is equally the province of psychology. We might then suggest that the difference is that most psychology is grounded in a perspective which approaches people as individuals. By

11 Radical sexual politics and post-war religion ‘In time the whole of things shall alter’1 Throughout this time of war and rebellion, Gore-Booth remained taken with the pursuit of gender equality.

1 Religion, gender, and the Virgin Mary I The mother not ‘out of sight’ n 1844, John Keble, an Anglican priest and popular poet, was dismayed to find that some of his friends objected to his including a poem about the Virgin Mary, ‘Mother out of sight’, in his second volume of poems, Lyra innocentium. Although Keble defended his poem as being in accordance with both Scripture and ‘the doctrinal decisions of the Whole Church’,1 his friends feared that its invocation of the Virgin Mary was evidence that, in the words of one, he ‘had advanced considerably in his

3 Re-sexing religion in suburban Glasgow I n June 1903, Bella and Charles Pearce played host to an American couple at ‘Nithsdale’, their large stone villa in the middle-class Glasgow suburb of Langside. The man was Thomas Lake Harris, an imposing, eighty-year-old Christian mystic and the spiritual leader of the Brotherhood of the New Life, a millenarian organisation behind two utopian communities in New York state and California. The woman was Jane Lee Waring, a seventy-three-year-old heiress, originally from New York City, who had joined the Brotherhood in her

Chapter 1 . The politics of religion and the religion of politics in Elizabethan England O ne of the things to be done in haste and repented at leisure is to propose a neat formula by way of a title for an article without thinking through what the formula might mean, and how the subject could be tackled. ‘The politics of religion and the religion of politics’ sounds fine until you begin to consider how the topics of religion and politics are to be prised apart. To make any sense, my title depends on religion and politics being two distinct substances; and it
