<p><b>Mary Chilton Callaway</b> is Associate Professor and Department Chair in the Theology Department at Fordham University, New York. She is the author of several published essays on the reception of Jeremiah, particularly in relation to developing ideas of the self in early modern Europe.
<p><b>Explores the interpretive history of the Book of Jeremiah, and highlights its influence on various cultures through the centuries</b> <p><i>Jeremiah Through the Centuries</i> explores the reception history of this enigmatic prophet and his words. The book offers an introduction telling the story of the surprising ways in which both voice and persona of this elusive prophet were used in critical historical moments, as well as a complete chapter-by-chapter commentary that presents the significant historical effects of selected texts. The spiritual struggles of the faithful and critiques of philosophers and scientists are often presented in their own voices. The book offers original ideas about the effects of the "slipping figure of Jeremiah" on the developing idea of the self, shown in a wide range of liturgical, political, artistic, literary, and cultural contexts. <p>The book guides readers through various interpretations of Jeremiah's poetry and prose, discussing the profound influence that Jeremiah and Western culture<i></i> have had on each other through the centuries.
