Assailing the primitive Church
Robert G. Ingram

Chapter 9 Flood of resentment: assailing the primitive Church C onyers Middleton’s History of the Life of Marcus Tullius Cicero (1741) proved not to be a vehicle for personal and professional redemption. Its content rankled the orthodox so that the book failed to remove the heterodox stain to his reputation. While he profited financially from it, his ecclesiastical career remained stalled, his resentment metastasized and he returned again to overt polemical divinity. This chapter explores how orthodox coercion and punishment intensified and deepened one

Configurations of con/destructive affective activism in women’s organising

events that highlight the collective imaginary and its potential for participation, including the manner in which the original event inscribes us and directs our bodies towards and away from imaginations of freedom. To do this, I identify and discuss affective registers of rage, pain, love, shame, fury and resentment as they emerged within the movement. It is my contention that these different registers of affect illustrate both constructive and destructive functions to social organising and to the movement in

An Interview with Celso Amorim, Former Brazilian Foreign Minister
Juliano Fiori

Introduction Rio de Janeiro, 20 August 2018 Outside, resentment festered in the deep tracks of modernity’s march. Inside, Celso Amorim sat back on his sofa, coddling a copy of E. V. Rieu’s English translation of The Iliad . ‘Sometimes I seek asylum in classical antiquity.’ There are surely more tranquil sites of refuge than Homer’s Troy. But it is perhaps fitting that Amorim should find comfort in a foundational tale of great power struggle. He has worked in foreign service for most of the last fifty years. He is the most

proceedings to reach an agreement and the latter created most animosity, conflicts and resentment in the population ( Ingelaere, 2011a ; Ingelaere, 2016 : 154–8). This was, again, mostly a result of the prosecutorial logic animating a forensic style of ‘truth-speaking’ (or lying) in the gacaca assemblage. Haveman (2011) provides an interesting illustration of the way the Rwandan social imaginary was – to a certain extent – at work in the gacaca practice. 13 While he observed the gacaca proceedings dealing with crimes committed against the family of a Rwandan

Authority and vision

John McGahern is one of those writers whose work continues to be appreciated across a range of readerships. As a writer who eschewed the notion of himself as 'artist' he addressed his task through a commitment to style, what he called the 'revelation of the personality through language'. McGahern's work began to receive critical attention only from when Denis Sampson's seminal study, Outstaring Nature's Eye: The Fiction of John McGahern was published in 1993. This book focuses on the physical landscape to show how the inadequacy of the State that emerged after 1922 is reflected in the characters' shifting relationship with the landscape, the connection has been made vulnerable through trauma and painful memory. It explores this sense of resentment and disillusionment in McGahern's novels, drawing parallels between the revolutionary memories and McGahern's own family experience. McGahern's All Over Ireland offers a number of fine stories, mostly set in Ireland, and dealing with distinctly Irish themes. He wrote a novel that is an example of openness, compassion and understanding for any form of strangeness. The vision of education and of the shaping of identity found in his writing is not an idiosyncratic one - it is consistent with much of the best thought within the tradition of liberal education. The book provides an intriguing comparison between McGahern and Flannery O'Connor, illustrating how diverse stories share an underlying current of brutality, demonstrating their respective authors' preoccupation with a human propensity towards evil.

‘us’ rather than ‘Other’ (Tajfel, 1978 ), would be supplanted by increasing adherence to a separate English identity that might come to regard Scotland and Wales as ‘Other’ rather than ‘us’. A second fear was that devolution would generate resentment. Scotland and Wales would after all be granted a degree of self-government that was to be denied

connection has been made vulnerable through trauma and painful memory. Allen is interested in how McGahern represents the after-effects of this trauma by using images of motion and water, particularly in Amongst Women, to suggest that, despite the seeming isolation and detachment of places like Great Meadow, these images of movement and fluidity actually point to a growing and unavoidable connection between the individual and the changing world. Roy Foster (Chapter 4) further explores this sense of resentment and disillusionment in McGahern’s novels, drawing parallels

Cromwell, which involved more hostility and resentment than we have supposed. At the very least, we need a finer sense of what ‘personal’ means. If it refers to an individual’s unfiltered, relatively uncomplicated set of strongly positive emotions for and experience of a friend, then the word seems wanting. If it denotes complicated, conflicted emotional engagement presented to the reader via various forms of mediation, then the term becomes more useful. The main reason for doubting the personal authenticity of the line is that it isn’t Marvell’s. Critics such as H. M

’ should not be discounted when seeking to explain this, some features of the twentieth-century American experience make up an important part of the story. In particular, the structural characteristics of the contemporary American state, and the ways in which these are perceived and understood by large numbers of people, particularly within the white population, add to and build upon long-held resentments about the legitimate place and efficacy of government. 2 While such structural characteristics cannot in themselves explain why the Trump campaign took off and gained

as pre-​modern or anti-​modern. Some disquieting Irish trends emerged during the 1960s which pointed to domestic tensions and mounting resistance to modernisation. These sometimes took on an anti-​German hue and found violent expression in the volatility of the late 1960s. This chapter will focus on the resentments in some rural Irish districts against the purchase of land and property by foreigners, particularly Germans. This resounded throughout the decade and mixed with controversial revelations about aspects of Irish–​German relations during Second World War
