TL;DR: In this article, the authors propose a definition du terme en distinguant trois niveaux, celui de la realite vecue, leui de the formulation d'un enseignement, and enfin l'etude elle-meme, and retrace l'histoire de l'utilisation and des developpements de ce terme, which possede deux acceptions l'une theologique, l'autre morale.
Abstract: Ce que recouvre le terme de spiritualite est devenu vague, car celui-ci a ete employe dans des domaines trop divers. L'A. retrace l'histoire de l'utilisation et des developpements de ce terme qui possede deux acceptions l'une theologique, l'autre morale. Un sens recent designe une branche des etudes religieuses. L'A. propose ensuite une definition du terme en distinguant trois niveaux, celui de la realite vecue, celui de la formulation d'un enseignement sur la realite vecue et enfin l'etude elle-meme. L'A. essaye de preciser le contenu de ce domaine d'etudes qui comprend les attitudes religieuses et theologiques des traditions et des individus et leurs influences (psychologique, sociologique, philosophique, linguistique...).

TL;DR: Ahlstrom as mentioned in this paper states that events of the sixties have driven us to an awareness of historiographical crisis and that events have so radically transformed the American situation that our whole view of what is relevant in the past must be revised.
Abstract: introduction Ahlstrom states that events of the sixties have driven us to ’an awareness of historiographical crisis’ and that ’events have so radically transformed the American situation that our whole view of what is relevant in the past must be revised’ (12). This sweeping statement would seem to promise a new historical interpretation based upon a periodization determined by the decisive significance of the decade of the sixties. What are we to say to this? The new historical interpretation is simply not forthcoming. Ahlstrom’s volume does not mark a new interpretation of the past but the best of the old. As regards the sixties being a decisive turning point, Ahlstrom is fully aware that ’the historian who describes his own times as the end of an epoch makes a

TL;DR: Scholem's On the Kabbalah and Its Symbolism as mentioned in this paper is a collection of essays previously published in English, as well as translations of essays in German and Hebrew.
Abstract: For almost half a century Professor Gershom Scholem has pioneered research in the history of Jewish mysticism and spirituality. The English-speaking world became acquainted with his work through Major Trends in Jewish Mysticism ( 1941 ) . Succeeding volumes of his writings have each been acclaimed as definitive. His publisher, Schocken Books, has been publishing translations of his most important essays, the first volume of which appeared in 1965 under the title On the Kabbalah and Its Symbolism. The present volume is a collection of essays previously published in English, as well as translations of essays in German and Hebrew.

TL;DR: In this article, Anderson redefines Pentecostalism as a movement concerned primarily with the experience of the working of the Holy Spirit and the practice of spiritual gifts, and liberates this movement from a more common western &dquo;white&dqo;theo-denominational theo-sec.
Abstract: There is little doubt that 20th-century Christianity has been transformed by the emergence of Pentecostal-charismatic spirituality. Among the few introductions about this fast-growing movement that have been written, Allan Anderson’s introduction stands out in its attempt to present a more global history of Pentecostalism; rather than the more common American and European centred histories. This approach is best seen in the timely post-colonial critique on the western bias in the writing of Pentecostal history (chapter 9). Anderson, a Reader in Pentecostal Studies at the University of Birmingham and former Pentecostal minister, aims at presenting a more balanced approach. He is successful in two ways. First, Anderson redefines Pentecostalism as a movement &dquo;concerned primarily with the experience of the working of the Holy Spirit and the practice of spiritual gifts&dquo; (14). In doing so, he liberates this movement from a more common western &dquo;white&dquo; theo-denominational
