In this long-awaited book, the result of more than a decade of research, Lester K. Little reconstructs and explores the phenomenon of officially sanctioned religious cursing in medieval Europe. He focuses on a church service, called in Latin either clamor or maledictio, used by monastic communities (primarily in Francia) between approximately 990 and 1250. Threatened by bands of heavily armed knights in a period of incessant civil strife, communities of monks, nuns, and cathedral clerics retaliated by cursing their enemies in a formal religious ceremony. After presenting the formulas the monks used in such cursing, Little explores the social, political, and juridical contexts in which these curses were used and explains how Christian authorities who condemned cursing could also authorize it. He demonstrates that these Benedictine maledictions often played a decisive role in resolving the monks' frequent property disputes with local notables, especially knights. Little's approach to his subject is topical. After determining the clamor's sources, he takes up its kinship with such related liturgy as the humiliation of saints and then shows where and to what end it was used. By the conclusion of his work, he has recreated the whole culture of the medieval clamor, and in the process he has illuminated many other aspects of medieval social and legal culture.
He wore the curse like a cloak. In retribution, let curses against him soak into his body like water, like oil into his bones, like a garment wrapped around him, and like a belt, (verses 18-19). Every curse resides within the boundaries ...

From Mourning to Praise approaches the subject of suffering and loss the way the Bible approaches it: with honesty. Regardless of how our experiences differ, you can know that God continues to love you and care for you. The purpose of this book is to show you how to plead your case before God during suffering. It will teach you how to seek Gods face in your dark hours. Then when God brings you to a place where you begin to discern his deeper work in your life, it will teach you how to offer meaningful praise for what he has taught you. Finally it will introduce you to one of the greatest blessings of suffering, the opportunity to reach out to others who experience suffering or loss. Here are some of the points that this book affirms: God cares when you suffer. God is with you when you suffer. The Bible gives you permission to throw aside your happy mask when you suffer. You have a right to complain about injustice and plead to God for justice. You have the freedom to be angry with Godout loud. God uses suffering to produce growth and character depth. Suffering produces deeper character than any pleasure can produce. Worship from a position of suffering can be far more meaningful than worship that is always happy. Drawing on the reality from the book of Job, the Psalms, and from the New Testament, From Mourning to Praise invites you to grieve Gods way while you wait for his deliverance.
