The Barbary War - the first American war against Libya - was the first war waged by the United States outside national boundaries after gaining independence and unification of the country. The four Barbary States of North Africa - Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli - had plundered seaborne commerce for centuries.

In 1638, John Lewger made a home in the wilderness of the New World, in a place called Maryland. He named his house St. John's, and for nearly eighty years, it was the center of an ambitious English plan to build a new kind of community on American soil. Men and women lived and worked within its walls. Babies were born. Last breaths drawn. St. John's walls witnessed the first stirrings of the great struggles that would dominate the continent for the next three centuries: The unimaginable wealth of the New World's crops and natural resources.

Alchemy and Chemistry in the 16th and 17th Centuries

Alchemy and Chemistry in the 16th and 17th Centuries (International Archives of the History of Ideas Archives internationales d'histoire des idées) by Piyo Rattansi
English | 1994 | ISBN: 9401043337 | 215 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

The present volume owes its ongm to a Colloquium on "Alchemy and Chemistry in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries", held at the Warburg Institute on 26th and 27th July 1989. The Colloquium focused on a number of selected themes during a closely defined chronological interval: on the relation of alchemy and chemistry to medicine, philosophy, religion, and to the corpuscular philosophy, in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Be Sober and Reasonable The Critique of Enthusiasm in the Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth Centuries

Be Sober and Reasonable The Critique of Enthusiasm in the Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth Centuries (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History) by Michael Heyd
English | June 1995 | ISBN: 9004101187 | 312 pages | PDF | 16 MB

This work deals with the theological and medical critique of "enthusiasm" in the 17th and early 18th centuries and with the relationship between enthusiasm and the new natural philosophy in that period. "Enthusiasm" at that time was a label ascribed to various individuals and groups who claimed to have direct divine inspiration - prophets, millenarists and alchemists as well as experimental philosophers and even philosophers like Descartes. This book attempts to combine the perspectives of intellectual history, Church history, history of medicine and history of science in analyzing the various reactions to enthusiasm. The central thesis of the book is that the reaction to enthusiasm, especially in the Protestant world, may provide an important key to the origins of the Enlightenment and to the processes of secularization of European consciousness.
