Education in World History

By Mark S. Johnson, Peter N. Stearns
2022., Routledge:

Subject: Comparative education, islamic education
Availability:1 of 1(Digital)
Read More

Summary Note

This comprehensive overview of the history of education, from ancient times to the present day, is a thematic survey of the history of education throughout the world. Education in World History analyzes patterns of religious and cultural influence in classical societies, as well as the ways in which conquest, trade and cross-cultural contacts helped to shape educational change in post-classical societies. From Confucius, through to the Greeks and the Egyptians, Mark S. Johnson first takes an integrated look at ancient education, and the development of various education traditions separately. Considering the ways in which early modern states and religious movements helped to shape ethnic, religious and national identities through increasingly formal institutionalized education, he then examines how colonialism influenced education throughout the emerging world system in the modern era. Finally, the volume goes on to discuss the rise of vocationalism, the decline - in some places - of religious education, and the effects of globalization on education. Chapters include: Religion and Education in Classical Societies Cross-Cultural Influences in Post-Classical Education Education, the State and Early Modern Identities Colonialism and the Western Model of Educational Development Education After Colonialism and the Effects of Globalization Rethinking International Education? Suitable for introductory courses and students new to the subject, this concise and lively study reconsiders the history of education from the perspective of world and comparative history.

Summary Note

This collection of Charles Burnett's articles on the transmission of Arabic learning to Europe concentrates on the identity of the Latin translators and the context in which they were working. The articles are arranged in roughly chronological order, beginning with the earliest known translations from Arabic at the end of the 10th century, progressing through 11th-century translations made in Southern Italy, translators working in Sicily and the Principality of Antioch at the beginning of the 12th century, the first of the 12th-century Iberian translators, the beginnings and development of 'professional' translation activity in Toledo, and the transfer of this activity from Toledo to Frederick II's entourage in the 13th century.

The Beginnings of Jewishness: Boundaries, Varieties, Uncertainties

By Cohen, Shaye J. D.
2001., University of California Press:

Subject: Jewish Culture and Tradition
Availability:1 of 1(Digital)
Read More

Summary Note

In modern times, various Jewish groups have argued whether Jewishness is a function of ethnicity, of nationality, of religion, or of all three. These fundamental conceptions were already in place in antiquity. The peculiar combination of ethnicity, nationality, and religion that would characterize Jewishness through the centuries first took shape in the second century B.C.E. This brilliantly argued, accessible book unravels one of the most complex issues of late antiquity by showing how these elements were understood and applied in the construction of Jewish identity―by Jews, by gentiles, and by the state. Beginning with the intriguing case of Herod the Great's Jewishness, Cohen moves on to discuss what made or did not make Jewish identity during the period, the question of conversion, the prohibition of intermarriage, matrilineal descent, and the place of the convert in the Jewish and non-Jewish worlds. His superb study is unique in that it draws on a wide range of sources: Jewish literature written in Greek, classical sources, and rabbinic texts, both ancient and medieval. It also features a detailed discussion of many of the central rabbinic texts dealing with conversion to Judaism.

A Global Religion

By Faten Sabri (Author)
2022., Self-publishing:

Subject: World Religions, Comparative Religion
Availability:1 of 1(Digital)
Read More

Summary Note

We used to hear cabin crew instructions about the importance of taking care of ourselves first and then our children, that were also in danger during the flight. These instructions are similar to what the world's priests did when they asked their followers to resort to the Creator directly and avoid approaching them due to the fear of infection after the Corona pandemic. Those who resort to idols in request and worship rushed to sterilize their gods and not approach them due to the fear of infection. God said: If you call upon them, they cannot hear your calls. And if they were to hear, they could not respond to you. On the Day of Judgment, they will disown your worship ˹of them˺. And no one can inform you ˹O Prophet˺ like the All-Knowledgeable (Fatir:14). As if humans are the virus due to their actions, and Corona is the cure. Until the earth became strait to humans, their souls were also straitened. God said: ... until the earth became strait to them notwithstanding its spaciousness and their souls were also straitened to them; and they knew it for certain that there was no refuge from Allah but in Him; then He turned to them (mercifully) that they might turn (to Him); surely Allah is the Oft-returning (to mercy), the Merciful (Al-Tawba:113). The Coronavirus is one of the most powerful divine messages that tell people: At a specific moment, everyone will turn to the source of his existence (the Creator), willingly or by force. No matter how much we rely on each other and strive to make society happy, there will come a day when we and humanity will not be able to save ourselves. We will feel that we need an absolute Power, that do not depend on anyone. This Power is: The Creator of Buddha, Ram and Krishna, the Creator of monks, saints and priests, the Creator of the prophets of God, Muhammad, and Christ, may peace be upon them. It is not permissible to demand from the creations.

Early Childhood Education and Care: Policy and Practice

By Margaret Clark (Author), Tim Waller (Author), Margaret M. Clark (Editor)

Subject: Early Childhood Education, Child Development, Early Childhood Curriculum
Availability:1 of 1(Digital)

Summary Note

′A much needed book that uniquely brings together policy and practice in early childhood education and care across the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. It offers a wealth of information and useful websites and addresses so that, importantly, readers can keep abreast of the rapidly changing external environment in these countries... An essential read for those wishing to understand the background to policy and practice in early childhood education and care′ - Linda Miller, The Open University ′This book is long overdue; it provides effective cameos of developments in each country, highlighting key legislation, the underlying philosophy, the formation of policies and thier implementation in state, voluntary and private provision′ - The International Journal of Early Childhood ′This unique resource will be invaluable in helping students and others trying to understand the context of current early years provision. The case studies bring the book to life and ground it in the stories of real children and their families. They highlight how the similarities and differences in support for children and their families are more dependent on where they live than what they need′ - Lesley Staggs Early childhood education and care policy has an impact on the daily lives of early years practitioners and the families and children they work with, and practising and trainee early childhood professionals need to have an understanding of current policy as well as the contexts for policy-making and implementation. Currently, the majority of textbooks for early years education and early childhood students in the UK focus on the situation in England. As a result, readers may have a skewed perspective on policy and practice, and not be aware of the varying and different contexts in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Also, those working in settings not in England have to work hard to apply texts to their own contexts. In contrast, this book gives the reader easy access to information on the policies and practices in ECEC across each of the countries in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Each chapter covers: o background information o policy and practice in early childhood education and care o transition o schooling and curriculum o quality assurance, examination and inspection o professional development and training o future and imminent changes o case studies of children′s lives. In addition to describing the legislatory, political and practical situation in each country, the book enables comparisons to be drawn, and helps readers interpret the data critically. It will be essential reading for modules on comparative education and international perspectives, but will also form a foundation for all modules involving policy and provision on Early Years Education, Early Childhood or Childhood Studies courses. Practitioners undertaking CPD modules or foundation degrees, and international students looking for comparative data will also find the book useful.

He was also given the glad tidings that he would be one of the martyrs and the Prophet's neighbor in Paradise.
