    : Staging Harmony: Music and Religious Change in Late Medieval and Early Modern English Drama eBook: Katherine Steele Brokaw: Kindle StoreCited by: 2.   Katherine Steele Brokaw. Staging Harmony: Music and Religious Change in Late Medieval and Early Modern English Drama. Ithaca: Cornell University Press, Pp Hardback USD $ ISBN: Since the time of Augustine, theologians from multiple religious confessions have struggled to account for music's affective power.

    This pioneering Handbook offers a comprehensive consideration of the dynamic relationship between English literature and religion in the early modern period. The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were the most turbulent times in the history of the British church - and, perhaps as a result, produced some of the greatest devotional poetry, sermons, polemics, and epics of literature in English. In the first half of The Materiality of Religion in Early Modern English Drama, Williamson examines the role of physically substantial "material technologies" such as the tomb and the altar. The second half of the book focuses on the more prevalent, and portable, objects of the cross and religious book.

      The best modern classic books. This modern classics book list is my best guess about the books that matter from a period of not-quite 50 years in the second half of the twentieth century. Somebody else could do their own list of must-read modern classics that has absolutely no overlap with mine, and it would probably be a good list : Rebecca Hussey.
