The term "studia humanitatis" refers to the revival of the study of languages and ancient culture, for instance, through Petrarch in Italy, and through Rabelais in France. Some varieties of nontheistic religious humanism may conceive of the word divine as more than metaphoric even in the absence of a belief in a traditional God; they may believe in ideals that transcend physical reality; or they may conceive of some experiences as "numinous" or uniquely religious.

    Pasadena City College held a tabling event during Clubs Week on their campus. This is the Fifth in a Series: New Turns in Religious Thought Both the title and the rationale for the series "New Turns in Religious Thought" suggest that theology is passing through one of its most agonizing periods, as if it were trying to open a door with the wrong key.

To facilitate this process, the Humanist Society offers different endorsement options, including a path for those considering a one-time experience, those wishing to be regular celebrants as well as associate celebrants, lay leaders, chaplains, and secular invocators. The subsidies are not only for “merchants of death.” Revelling in the new prospects for arms sales with NATO expansion, a spokesman for the Aerospace Industries Association observes that the new markets ($10 billion for fighter jets alone, he estimates) include electronics, communications systems, etc., amounting to “real money” for advanced industry generally.
