This work examines the relationships between religion, particularly constructed as the function of leadership framed by religious identities or motivations, and transformations, attempted or effected, of the political order.

Sacralization of the World in the Seventeenth-Century: The Experience of Holiness in Everyday Life
2009 0-7734-3884-X
This work examines the English church and the Russian church during the seventeenth century, with special attention given to the period after the Civil War in England and the raskol’ in Russia [i.e., 1660-1700]. It argues that the logocentric religious identity overcame the iconographic perspective during the years 1660 to 1700, and that this development weakened the church during the modern period. This book contains two color photographs and fourteen black and white photographs.
