Janusz Janowiak O.carm was born in Lipnica Wielka, Poland, in 1974. He obtained his Doctorate in Biblical Theology from the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy in Dublin, Ireland. He is a lecturer in Biblical Theology and Koine Greek at the St. Jozef Bilczewski Theological Institute in Lviv, Ukraine, and has published several articles on the authorship and origin of various biblical books. This engaging study offers unique insights into the difficult and sometimes controversial theme of God’s zeal and jealousy as taught in the Old Testament. Making use of the historical-critical method, the author presents the texts examined in this book against their historical background to reflect their development and conducts their exegetical and theological analysis. In this way, he demonstrates that this concept predominantly speaks of God who loves his people so much that he wants them to remain faithful to him and inspires them to give a positive response to his love.

The second of the January volumes of the Bollandist critical hagiography known as the Acta Sanctorum was published in 1643 and it included the dossier on the fourteenth-century papal diplomat and Latin Patriarch of Constantinople, St. Peter Thomas O.Carm., compiled by Godfrey Henschen S.J. The dossier was in two parts, the first a critical review by Henschen of previous scholarship on the activity of St. Peter as papal legate and the second an edited transcript of the Life of St. Peter by his associate and friend, Philippe de Mézières, the Chancellor of the Kingdom of Cyprus, as found in the Cronicon Universale of Tierri Pauwels. Identifying the various later accounts of the Life of St. Peter Thomas and, in particular, those accounts by Carmelite authors that sought to represent him in a manner that was not consistent with the account by De Mézières, Henschen argues, for example, that the claim that St. Peter was martyred is inconsistent with the eye-witness acount of the last illness an death of the Saint by De Mézières. The Pauwels text on which Henschen bases his edition of the Life has, in more recent times, been recognised as flawed in some significant ways, and Henschen later revised the critical review that forms the first part of the present manuscript, but the 1643 dossier constitutes, nevertheless, the first truly critical study of the hagiography of St Peter and it continues to be the text that is most frequently mentioned and cited. This is the first English translation and edition of a document that is important, not only from the point of view of historiography, but also from the perspective of the history of the fourteenth-century. As far as possible, the various historical sources and individuals mentioned either in the Life of St. Peter or in the critical review by Henschen have been identified and indexed and notes have been provided to enable the modern reader to appreciate the significance of some obscure points in the text.
Szymon Sułecki (1975), a history graduate from the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Cracow (2000), PhD (2013), works at the Carmelite monastery at Piasek in Cracow (archive and special collections), his interests focus primarily on history of the Carmelites in Poland, as well as sphragistics and bibliological issues, author of scientific publications, participant of numerous scientific conferences, organizer of exhibitions devoted to Carmelite issues, member of The Carmelite Library Association.
The library of the Carmelite Convent at Piasek in Cracow is a unique treasure. It has survived in its basic shape from the 15th century, and almost entirely from the end of the 16th century. During the upheavals that befell the monastery throughout over 600 years of its existence (it was founded in 1397) its library would be moved to other places and hidden. The decoration scheme surviving in the library from the 17th century is a reflection of the special importance held by the book collection in the Cracow convent.
The Library of the Carmelite Monastery at Piasek in Cracow is the first monograph study on the library of the Cracow Carmelites at Piasek. It presents the first 400 years of its existence starting from its inception late in the 14th century, through its development in the course of the 15th and 16th centuries, to its flowering during the 17th and 18th centuries. The study deals with fundamental issues, such as the organization of the library, the Carmelite provisions regulating library issues, as well as reconstructs the contents of its book holdings over successive periods. Surviving manuscripts, including liturgical ones, are discussed. The Carmelite approach to the idea and the institution of a monastery library is traced throughout the ages, while the history of the book collection is linked both with specific events and developments within the monastery itself and with individuals who had the care and use of the library.
Fr. Redemptus Valabek, O. Carm. continues his reflections from the first volume, this time considering the impact of Vatican II on Carmelite life. These essays include reflections on the first general chapter after the close of the Council, and the identity and direction of the third order, as well as theological commentaries on various themes, such as the cross and reconciliation, communication, and liturgy.
Carmelites contribution during the Second Vatican Council. The books that we have the pleasure to offer you, are representative of the topics covered by the Second Vatican Council, where the Carmelites have participated in several sessions.
“In these articles, P. Redemptus touches a wide range of issues and questions …. The author describes some of the most interesting moments of the history of the 20th century, from a series of sessions of the Second Vatican Council II and debates held on important issues both within the Council room and beyond.” Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm.
