Item Description...
Cinema Divinite sets out various critical approaches to the study of film, religion and theology. It provides introduction to major concepts in film studies such as cinema spectatorship, the nature and application of film theory and includes discussion of the extensive literature which has been published recently on film and religion. Here readers will also find in-depth case studies of specific films, filmmakers and genres - from Clint Eastwood to Luis Bruel, from animation to film noir. The final part looks specifically at the significance of religion within film, with a concluding discussion of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ.

Publishers Description
This book is a veritable cornucopian feast for anyone interested in film. From case studies of key directors to discussions of cinematic classics, from explorations of time-honoured genres to investigations of the theological heart of many contemporary favourites, there is something for everyone's tastes here. This will help put to rest any suggestion that religion, theology and the Bible have nothing to do with the cinema -rather, these studies demonstrate that such matters are at the centre of our modern love-affair with the moving image."Dr Larry J Kreitzer, Tutor of New Testament and Tutor for Graduates, Regents Pak College, Oxford University, UK "From this fascinating collection, readers will learn that "biblical" movies reflect not only the biblical stories they tell but also the issues and trends that are important to the filmmakers who created them, while films that are not explicitly about the Bible may nonetheless be built around biblical themes, characters and stories. A stimulating and far-ranging addition to the growing literature on the intersections among the Bible, theology and cinema, this book is a must-read for all who love watching movies and talking about them." Dr Adele Reinhartz, Dean Graduate Studies and Research, Wilfrid Laurier University, Ontario The interdisciplinary study of theology and film requires a responsible engagement on the part of religious studies experts, biblical scholars and theologians, with film studies. Cinema Divinite first of all sets out various critical approaches to the study of film and theology such as formalism, expressionism, realism, textual analysis, contextual analysis, postmodern eclecticism, narrative criticism and cultural studies. The early chapters also look at the major concepts in film studies such as cinema spectatorship and the nature and application of film theory to theology.The book takes a case-study approach as it examines specific films, including The Godfather, Blade Runner, 0 Brother Where Art Thou?, specific filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Stanley Kubrik and Luis Bunuel, and finally genre, including everything from film noir to animantion and the western.The book closes with a lively and often far-sighted discussion of the recently released The Passion of Christ. Eric S. Christianson is Senior Lecturer in Biblical Studies, University College Chester. Peter Francis is Warden of the St Deiniol's Library. William R Telford is Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies at the University of Durham.
