    The Problem of Unbelief in the 16th Century

    1st Edition

    By Joseph Tendler

  • Spaces of Spirituality book cover

    Spaces of Spirituality

    1st Edition

    Edited by Nadia Bartolini, Sara MacKian, Steve Pile

    Reception of an Anti-Christian Text in Late Antiquity, 1st Edition

    Migration, Settlement and Innovation, 1st Edition

    Edited by Maria Hämmerli, Jean-François Mayer

    1st Edition

    By W. Michael Ashcraft

    The American public’s perception of New Religious Movements (NRMs) as fundamentally harmful cults stems from the "anticult" movement of the 1970s, which gave a sometimes hysterical and often distorted image of NRMs to the media. At the same time, academics pioneered a new field, studying these same…
