Purple cloth covered boards with minor shelf wear and one minor bump to lower front corner. Tiny chip to dust jacket which is now protected by archival quality mylar cover by Brodart. "Proceeding on the methodological principle that the later clarifies the earlier, a principle grounded in Tolstoy's obsessive need for self- articulation, this book uses his wide- ranging theological world- view, reconstructed for the first time and placed in the context of eastern Christian thought, to elucidate the meanings and strategies of his novels and stories. The poetics of Tolstoy's fiction, including mythic patterns, techniques of narration, and verbal style, are worked out in an original way and related to the concerns that were most precious to him."

11 Oakley, Francis Council Over Pope? Towards a Provisional Ecclesiology
New York Herder and Herder 1969 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Good Jacket 
Red cloth covered boards with nearly no observable wear. Minor stain to top of spine which extends a bit onto front and back of boards and dustjacket, it does not affect inside of book at all. Dustjacket protected by archival quality mylar cover. 190 clean, bright pages. "Dr. Oakley's subject is conciliarism. He dissects with dispassionate inclusiveness the events surrounding and following the Council of Constance, and he supports the dogmatic validity of its 1415 claim of the supremacy of conciliar authority. He further argues that Constance's teaching is incompatible with the decrees of Vatican I on papal primacy and inerrancy. Together these facts indicate to him that the future health of the institutional Church depends on her officially recognizing the secondary nature of Church structure as well as the relative quality of doctrinal formulations, and the provisional nature of ecclesiologies."
