Instead we meet with a welter of unfounded hypotheses put down as facts with a breath-taking naivety." Lewis' wise thoughts on the various theories of the atonement: �The central Christian belief is that Christ's death has somehow put us right with God and given us a fresh start.

A fundamental one is that a literary work always betrays the imprint of the age and environment in which it was produced; another is that a plurality of authors is proved by well-marked differences of diction and style, at least when these coincide with distinctions in view-point or discrepancies in a double treatment of the same subject. For other critics of comparable stature, such as Charles Sainte-Beuve in France, Benedetto Croce in Italy, and George Saintsbury in England, historical learning only threw into relief the expressive uniqueness of each artistic temperament.

Ockham, the father of nominalist philosophy, argued against papal supremacy and in so doing, “inadvertently aided Marsilius’s far more radical case for the complete subordination of the Church, theology, and Scripture to the secular political order. 12 As we see continually throughout this survey, the context of this sub-narrative is of a Church in strife, particularly during the Avignon papacy.

Misyar has been suggested by some western authors to be a comparable marriage with Nikah mut'ah and that they find it for the sole purpose of "sexual gratification in a licit manner" [211] [212] According to Florian Pohl, assistant professor of religion at Oxford College, Misyar marriage is controversial issue in the Muslim world, as many see it as practice that encourages marriages for purely sexual purposes, or that it is used as a cover for a form of prostitutuion. [213] Professor Yusuf Al-Qaradawi observes that he does not promote this type of marriage, although he has to recognise that it is legal, since it fulfils all the requirements of the usual marriage contract. [214] He states his preference that the clause of renunciation be not included within the marriage contract, but be the subject of a simple verbal agreement between the parties.

Criticism has allowed meaning and sense to surface in texts and events which were only partially elucidated in the traditionalist perspective. The commentaries of Alexandrian scholars contained observations on literary (stylistic) aspects of the classical texts, which partly and indirectly survive in collections of scholia.
