The Temptation Of Paradise

by James Kelly, The Temptation Of Paradise Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Temptation Of Paradise books, In 1715, a golden orb was minted at the request of General Don Juan De Ubilla as a holy gift for King Philip V of Spain. The general desired to exalt favor with the king. It was this ruler who had entrusted General De Ubilla with command of Spain's naval fleet. As a devout Catholic, he commissioned the creation of a Christian sculpture to represent Adam and Eve's fall from grace and man's redemption given by Christ Jesus. A golden apple was forged with an embedded silver crucifix on one side. An apple to represent original sin and a cross to represent salvation. General De Ubilla christened the casting as the 'Temptation of Paradise'. The general's treasured sculpture never touched the hands of King Philip V. In mid-summer of that year, a nighttime hurricane decimated the Spanish Fleet near present-day Vero Beach, Florida. Eleven of the twelve mighty ships and their crews of over 1,500 men were lost, to include the general himself and his prized sculpture.Nearly 300 years later, the Temptation of Paradise was recovered from a shipwreck salvage site near the shore at Vero Beach. It was eventually placed into the McNally Treasure Museum located at the Sebastian Inlet State Park. On a warm summer night in 1994, pirates looted the museum of its treasure, to include the priceless Temptation of Paradise orb. This is the backdrop for a highly engaging and suspenseful police story, where a headstrong female detective butts heads with the system while pursuing her own moral compass. Brave and strong combined with pretty, smart, and clever have made Detective Ellen McNeil a major crimes investigator - and she loves it. But not even Ellen is immune from heartache when, under the September harvest moon, the mayor's teenage daughter goes missing and the wife of a prominent cosmetic surgeon is murdered. The tranquility of Vero Beach is shattered. The pressure is on to solve these nightmare crimes like never before. However, nothing is as it seems. Gold fever strikes dark hearted scoundrels who will do unspeakable acts in pursuit of 300-year-old Spanish Treasure.

The Romantic Legacy Of Paradise Lost

by Jonathon Shears, The Romantic Legacy Of Paradise Lost Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Romantic Legacy Of Paradise Lost books, The Romantic Legacy of Paradise Lost offers a new critical insight into the relationship between Milton and the Romantic poets. Beginning with a discussion of the role that seventeenth and eighteenth-century writers like Dryden, Johnson and Burke played in formulating the political and spiritual mythology that grew up around Milton, Shears devotes a chapter to each of the major Romantic poets, contextualizing their 'misreadings' of Milton within a range of historical, aesthetic, and theoretical contexts and discourses. By tackling the vexed issue of whether Paradise Lost by its nature makes available and encourages alternate readings or whether misreadings are imposed on the poem from without, Shears argues that the Romantic inclination towards fragmentation and a polysemous aesthetic leads to disrupted readings of Paradise Lost that obscure the theme, or warp the 'grain', of the poem. Shears concludes by examining the ways in which the legacy of Romantic misreading continues to shape critical responses to Milton's epic.

Maps Of Paradise

by Alessandro Scafi, Maps Of Paradise Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Maps Of Paradise books, Where is paradise? It always seems to be elsewhere, inaccessible, outside of time. Either it existed yesterday or it will return tomorrow; it may be just around the corner, on a remote island, beyond the sea. Across a wide range of cultures, paradise is located in the distant past, in a longed-for future, in remote places or within each of us. In particular, people everywhere in the world share some kind of nostalgia for an innocence experienced at the beginning of history. For two millennia, learned Christians have wondered where on earth the primal paradise could have been located. Where was the idyllic Garden of Eden that is described in the Bible? In the Far East? In equatorial Africa? In Mesopotamia? Under the sea? Where were Adam and Eve created in their unspoiled perfection? Maps of Paradise charts the diverse ways in which scholars and mapmakers from the eighth to the twenty-first century rose to the challenge of identifying the location of paradise on a map, despite the certain knowledge that it was beyond human reach. Over one hundred illustrations celebrate this history of a paradox: the mapping of the unmappable. It is also a mirror to the universal dream of perfection and happiness, and the yearning to discover heaven on earth.
