Exorcism 2 Characters Ned Malloy Jimmy, his roommate Major Andrews Edward Malloy, Ned’s father Nordstrum 3 Scene A small bedroom on the top story of a squalid rooming house occupying the three upper fl oors of a building on a side street near the downtown waterfront, New York City—the ground fl oor being a saloon of the lowest type of grog shop. On the left of the room, forward, a rickety chest of drawers. Farther back, a window looking out on a fi re escape. To the rear of the window, a washstand with bowl and pitcher, and then another window. A pile of

from O R D E A L S , E X O R C I S M S The title of this little collection of poems and prose texts ( 1 2 1 pages in the original edition) could define much of Michaux's work. Its Preface is particularly important: in it, he explains the function of art-as-exorcism and its reason for being: "to ward off the surrounding powers of the hostile world." As in Facing the Locks, a collection he published almost ten years later, some of the texts in Ordeals, Exorcisms reflect, more clearly than usual, a reality outside the self—in this case, the Nazi Occupation of Eu

E X O R C I S M , OR THE S P E C T R E Exorcismus, sive Spectrum First printed in the August-September 1524 edition. This colloquy is the first of four in the August-September 1524 edition that deal with varieties of deception or chicanery. An entertaining exposure of credulity and superstition, 'Exorcism' has additional interest because of the very strong probability that Thomas More played a leading part in the tricks described. Some uncertainties of interpretation exist, but these do not spoil the fun for the ordinary reader. For example, there are three

A June 1546 Exorcism in Wittenberg as a Pastoral Act* By Timothy J. Wengert and Philip D.W. Krey| In June 1546, barely four months after the death of Martin Luther, Johannes Bugenhagen, Wittenberg’s chief pastor, performed an exorcism at St. Mary’s Church. A recently discovered account of this event sheds new light on the practice of exorcism by pastors trained in or directly influenced by the evan- gelical theology emanating from Wittenberg. What marks such accounts of exorcism is the intimate connection to pastoral care, the centrality of baptism and the

206 20 The Dissembly of Exorcism From chapter 10 of Gyn/Ecology, pp. 418– 19, 422– 24. Naming: Original summoning of words for the Self, world, and ultimate reality; liberation by Wicked Women of words from confinement in the sentences of the fathers; Truth- telling: the only adequate antidote for phallocracy’s Biggest Lies; exorcism of patriarchal labels by invoking Other reality and by conjuring the Spirits of women and of all Wild na- tures; re- calling the Race of Radiant Words. — Wickedary, p. 83 Roseanne Barr describes this uproarious conclusion to Gyn

Concerning a methodological pseudo-exorcism JAMES D. McCAWLEY Abstract Scientific revolutions, contrary to what is assumed by R. C. Dougherty in a recent review article in Linguistics, have little in common with political revolutions but much with technological revolutions. In particular, the course of scientific revolutions is determined not by 'revolutionaries' but by consumers. Dougherty's dismissal of generative semantics as 'counter- revolutionary' rests not only on a misunderstanding of the notion 'scientific revolution' but also on a perverse

opportunity to study John Chrys- ostom’s demonology as it evolves over a sustained period of time; the passages we 3 Th e Spectacle of Exorcism 88 John Chrysostom and Antioch consider here disclose the priest’s careful delineation of a Jewish diabolism that is ravaging Antioch. He takes a great deal of time and deliberation in his diaboliza- tion of the Jews in Antioch. He is especially careful to present the reasons behind Jews’ fall to the demons: their deviltry feeds upon heteropraxy (e.g., the rituals of Yom Kippur) and/or particular ritualized moments in time
