Recensione:

Juliet du Boulay's first book was a brilliant and elegant study of a community whose essential values were both material and sacred. Small subsistence holdings underlay the moral independence of families; and this reflected each day a kind of spiritual drama which she describes in this sequel, and relates to the symbolism of the Orthodox liturgy. --John Campbell, Emeritus Fellow, St Antony's College, Oxford

A lovely work of ethnographic art . . . the book is virtually unsurpassed in its careful but not laborious coherence and overall development of exposition that convincingly extends the network of significant connections and at the same time presses the analysis deeper towards the ultimate grounds of Greek village imagination. --Rodney Needham, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, All Souls College, Oxford

This elegantly written and beautifully constructed book illumines the imaginative world underpinning the ordinary lives of Greek villagers, and shows how their culture has been built around the `deep structure' of their Orthodox Christian faith. As a result we are introduced to a world of profound humanity and spiritual depth. A unique experience. --Bishop Basil of Amphipolis, Ecumenical Patriarchate

In this remarkable volume, a sequel to her acclaimed study of a Greek mountain village, Juliet du Boulay shows the place of Orthodoxy in villagers' thinking. She explores the way their faith is woven into the details of their lives, especially in the imagery of the round dance, a symbol in both village and Orthodox tradition of blest communal living. The result is fascinating.
--Fr Andrew Louth, Professor of Patristic and Byzantine Studies, University of Durham

L'autore:

Juliet du Boulay has an MA in English Literature and Language and a D. Phil. in Social Anthropology. After her first degree she worked on a newspaper in London for two years, and then in 1961 she went to Greece and remained there, with some breaks, until 1973. During 1961-64 she travelled extensively in the villages in mainland Greece and Evia (Euboea), and also spent some months walking with a donkey in the mountainous areas of Western Crete. She returned to England to study social anthropology at Oxford, after which in the period between 1966-1973 she lived chiefly in a mountain village of northern Evia, at first collecting material on the customs and institutions of the village, and then paying especial attention to the people's cosmological and religious ideas. These studies were written up in book form as Portrait of a Greek Mountain Village (1974) and Cosmos, Life, and Liturgy in a Greek Orthodox Village (forthcoming, Denise Harvey Publisher). She has also published various articles in anthropological journals.

In 1968 she was received into the Orthodox Church, and in 1976 she married and went with her husband to live in Scotland. There they formed the centre of a small Orthodox Community, at first in Aberdeen and then in Dunblane near Stirling, and it was to serve the community in Dunblane that her husband was in 1992 asked to be ordained first as deacon and then as priest.

Descrizione libro Denise Harvey (Publisher), 2009. Soft cover. Condizione: New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 480 pages, plus 32 full page plates, sewn binding. WINNER OF THE 2010 RUNCIMAN AWARD. In 1974 Juliet du Boulay published her first work, Portrait of a Greek Mountain Village, now considered a classic text for the anthropology of Modern Greece. This sequel, the fruit of a lifetime s reflection, adds new dimensions to this portrait, exploring the all-encompassing religious awareness of the same village community, and its rootedness in both Orthodox Christian and pre- or non-Christian ideas and practices. The story is told through a steady development of rich ethnographic detail in which the people come to life in all their vitality, contradictoriness, humour, realism and courage. From the particularities of life in the village a picture is built up in which the Byzantine legacy intertwines with fragments of antiquity, both Greek and Jewish, and with the universal themes, both tragic and hopeful, which confront man as he struggles to make sense of life. In this way a compelling pattern of symbols and images is revealed which underpin every action and event in the human and natural spheres, and is described here lucidly, convincingly and with great affection. * * * 'Juliet du Boulay s first book was a brilliant and elegant study of a community whose essential values were both material and sacred.

Descrizione libro Denise Harvey Editions / Distributed by Greecde In Print January 2009, 2009. Paper Back. Condizione: New. Cosmos, Life, and Liturgy/i> sets after revealing the inner world of an Orthodox Christian village in Greece, corresponding beautifully with Du Boulay's first book, Portrait of a Greek Mountain Village, which considers the external pattern of this life. Juliet Du Boulay's work is of the deepest anthropology--more specifically, ethnography (an exploration of cultural phenomena that reflects the knowledge and system of meaning guiding the life of a cultural group). This particularity does not, however, detract from the book's appeal; rather, it creates the sense of being at the very center of the world--a member of a community undamaged and whole, built around the deep structure of Orthodox faith and still influenced by fragments of Greek and Jewish antiquity. Beginning with the assertion 'that this world is created and upheld by God,' Du Boulay portrays a rich, rural life that manifests the polarity of good and evil not only throughout creation but also in the rituals of the Liturgy. In this world, man has been set in the middle, 'between the heights of the skies and the hollows of the earth, on whom the sun shines and for whom the waters flow.the centre where all things meet. The consequence of this cosmology is profound, for.actions that are conducted within this scheme, however small, can never ultimately be meaningless.' She proceeds through the rituals and meanings of time, work, hospitality, family, death, and mourning before attending to an earthy exposition of Orthodox theology as manifest in the saints, the Mother of God, the incarnate Christ, and 'the dance of life' encompassed within Orthodox culture and the liturgy. The microcosm of the Greek village powerfully illustrates how 'the liturgy in eternity, the liturgy in the Church, and the liturgy in the community have to resonate together if the cosmos is to become one.'.
