Writing Tangier discusses an array of topics relating to the literature on Tangier from the seventeenth century to the present. Major questions include: Why has Tangier come to play an important role in contemporary world literary history as a signifier in the literary imagination; what is the nature of the inter-textual output produced through Paul Bowles' translations of the oral tales of a circle of uneducated storytellers (including Mohammed Mrabet and Larbi Layachi) and the text (For Bread Alone) brought to Bowles by the literate Mohamed Choukri; how do academics, artists, and writers who have been based in the city or who have written about it assess the various socio-economic, political, and cultural factors that have shaped its cultural production and the relationship of this production to the celebrated hybrid aspects of its identity; does the success of the literature of Tangier reflect a truly new multicultural cosmopolitanism, or does it stem from the fact that this literature is congenial to Westerners, that it is understood in terms that they themselves define, and that much of it (including productions in Arabic prepared with the expectation of translation) has even ...

The hermeneutic path involved in the interpretation of law as well as in the interpretation of sacred texts, though peculiar, seems - as Emilio Betti pointed out - to share several things, most importantly the "normative" nature of interpretation. The 1999 issue of the Yearbook "Ars Interpretandi" accounts for the several and disparate relationships between these two important "regional hermeneutics".
Papers presented at the Fourteenth International Conference on Patristic Studies held in Oxford 2003 (see also Studia Patristica 39, 40, 41 and 42). The successive sets of Studia Patristica contain papers delivered at the International Conferences on Patristic Studies, which meet for a week once every four years in Oxford; they are held under the aegis of the Theology Faculty of the University. Members of these conferences come from all over the world and most offer papers. These range over the whole field, both East and West, from the second century to a section on the Nachleben of the Fathers. The majority are short papers dealing with some small and manageable point; they raise and sometimes resolve questions about the authenticity of documents, dates of events, and such like, and some unveil new texts. The smaller number of longer papers put such matters into context and indicate wider trends. The whole reflects the state of Patristic scholarship and demonstrates the vigour and popularity of the subject.

Scritti in onore del prof. Klemens Stock S.J. nel suo 75 compleanno. In occasione del settantacinquesimo compleanno del professor Klemens Stock S.J., questa raccolta non vuole essere soltanto un ricordo formale, ma intende diventare un contribuito significativo alla ricerca biblica attraverso i diversi studi scientifici che si susseguono nelle quattro sezioni del volume. Un omaggio al paziente e meticoloso lavoro di ricerca sul Vangelo che esprime chiaramente la Sua vocazione al servizio della Chiesa militante, come direbbe s. Ignazio: non e facile applicare la critica razionale alla metodologia biblica senza scendere a compromessi con la fede e con l'integrita della vita religiosa. Senz'altro, P. Stock ha saputo coniugare la Sua forza di credente con la fede e con la scienza. Ci auguriamo che quest'opera possa attrarre nuove vocazioni al servizio della Parola e dello studio esegetico.
