1 Kabir, Ananya Jahanara; Keynes, Simon & Andy Orchard PARADISE, DEATH AND DOOMSDAY IN ANGLO-SAXON LITERATURE
Cambridge University Press 2001 0521806003 / 9780521806008 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Bumping to bottom of spine. Back corner is bumped. ; Cambridge Studies in Anglo-Saxon England; 9 x 0.5 x 6 Inches; 222 pages; How did the Anglo-Saxons conceptualise the interim between death and Doomsday? In Paradise, Death and Doomsday in Anglo-Saxon Literature, Dr. Kabir presents the first investigation into the Anglo-Saxon belief in the "interim paradise" or paradise as a temporary abode for good souls following death and pending the final decisions of Doomsday. She determines the origins of this distinctive sense of paradise within early Christian polemics, establishes its Anglo-Saxon development as a site of contestation and compromise, and argues for its post-Conquest transformation into the doctrine of purgatory.
