Description:
In this book Peter Dronke illustrates how medieval Latin traditions can help us to understand Dante's great poem, The Divine Comedy. He first discusses medieval conceptions of allegory and vision, image and metaphor, symbol and myth, as well as some of Dante's own insights into the nature of poetic meaning. Later chapters relate particular moments in the Comedy - the giants in Inferno, the apocalyptic showings in Purgatorio, and the solar heaven in Paradiso - to Dante's Latin inheritance. All quotations from Italian are accompanies by English translations.

Einfuhrung von Colin Eisler, Erlauterungen von Patricia Corbett und Colin Eisler.Im Jahre 1970 erwarb die Morgan-Bibliothek ein in Mailand zum Vorschein gekommenes, reich illustriertes Gebetbuch, in dessen 22 erhalten gebliebenen Miniaturen Otto Pacht ein Hauptwerk Michelinos da Bezonno (erwahnt seit 1388, verstorben nach 1442) erkannte, der zu seiner Zeit als der hervorragendste Maler der Welt galt, von dem bis dahin aber nur zwei kleine Gemalde und einige wenige verstreute Miniaturen und Zeichnungen bekannt waren. Man vermutet, daB das Gebetbuch im Umkreis des Mailander Herzogshauses der Visconti in Auftrag gegeben worden war, doch fur wen, ist ungeklart geblieben.

Description:
Many books have been written about the Dead Sea Scrolls since their discovery in 1947, but until now the ordinary reader has had little opportunity to get to know the texts themselves and so to make any personal judgement of their value or relevance. In this volume a clear, faithful translation of the non-biblical scrolls from the Qumran caves is accompanied by brief introductory comment on each, and by a general description of the beliefs, customs, organization, and history of the Community they derive from.

Description:
The book is about the work of a 13th century Provencal author named R. Isaac ben Yedaiah. No one of such a name is to be found in the Jewish encyclopedias or in the general histories of Hebrew literature or even in the monumental bibliographic studies of the Wissenschaft des Judentums. Saperstein suggests that a new figure in the history of Jewish culture has been discovered - an important discovery. Saperstein sets out to reclaim an author whom has been ill treated by history. Marc Saperstein, who previously held the first regular faculty appointment in Jewish Studies at Harvard divinity school, is currently Gloria M. Goldstein Professor of Jewish History and Thought at Washington University in St Louis.

Description:
Translation, introduction and notes by A.W. Pickard-Cambridge, M.A.Demosthenes, whose name is a byword with us, as it was to Cicero and Burke, for oratory and statesmanship, was the man who would have revived the fading glory of Athens if any man could. All his political life he strove to restore his native city to her place as the leader, but not as the dominator, of the Hellenic world. It was his glory that while he foresaw the almost inevitable eclipse of Athens with the other free communities of Greece, he never ceased for a moment to struggle against aggression from without and dissension within.

Description:
The writings ascribed to the Athenian convert of St Paul, Denys (or Dionysius) the Areopagite, made their first appearance in the early sixth century. Since then, until the Renaissance and beyond, they have exercised an enormous influence on Christian thought, both in the East and in the West. Yet who their author really was remains an insoluble mystery.This book expounds the theological vision of these writings, a vision that draws both on the great Greek theologians of the fourth century - the Cappadocian Fathers - and on the stridently pagan philosophical tradition of late Athenian Neoplatonism, as well as showing affinities with the Christian thought of Syria, where "Denys" probably came from. His world is Christian, monastic, liturgical, with a lively sense of the celestial realm of the angels, and he expresses his understanding of its significance through a bold use of the categories of pagan philosophy. His theology combines a compelling vision of the beauty of God's world and his… Read more

Description:
Deutsche Mythologie (German: [ňąd…Ē Źt É…ô mytoloňą…°iňź], Teutonic Mythology) is a treatise on Germanic mythology by Jacob Grimm. First published in Germany in 1835, the work is an exhaustive treatment of the subject, tracing the mythology and beliefs of the ancient Germanic peoples from their earliest attestations to their survivals in modern traditions, folktales and popular expressions. (Source: Wikipedia)
The structure of the Deutsche Mythologie is fairly encyclopaedic. The articles and chapters are discursive of philological, historical, folkloristic, and poetic aspects of the pre-Christian Germanic religions. The sources are varied epochally and geographically. In many instances, Grimm cites the North and West Germanic variants of a religious entity; thus the entry on Thor is titled 'Donar, Thunar (Th√īrr)'. Older Germanic words, particularly those concerning ritual, are often compared to Latin equivalents, as evident in the table of contents.

Description:
Symbolism was an essential part of the ancient art of the Orient and of the medieval tradition in the West. It has been lately revived in the study of the unconscious, both directly in the field of dreams, visions and psycho-analysis, and indirectly in art and poetry. The aim of this work is to create a centre of general reference for symbological studies by clarifying the unvarying essential meaning of every symbol. This new edition of J.E. Cirlot's book incorporates extensive revisions from the first edition of 1962.

Uber die Herkunft, das Leben und Wirken der Heiligen Drei Konige ist auber dem kurzen Bericht des Matthaus-Evangeliums, es seien drei Weise aus dem Morgenland von einem Stern gefuhrt zur Anbetung des Jesuskindes nach Bethlehem gekokmmen, wenig bekannt. Johannes von Hildesheim stellate genaue Nachforschungen uber die muhevolle Heimkehr der Konige in ihre Heimatlander an, uber ihre Taufe durch den heiligen Thomas sowie uber die Wunder, die sie noch nach ihrem tode wirkten. Er fragte Kreuzritter und andere Orientreisende nach dem Zustand der heiligen Statten, der Topographie des Landes und den klimatischen Verhaltnissen. Er machte sich mit morgenlandischer Lebensart vertraut und studierte heidnische Quellen, in denen der Aufgang eines Sterns von ungewohnlichem Glanz geweissagt wird. Daraus komponierte er mit poetischer Imagination und theologischer Versiertheit die Legende von den Heiligen Drei Koningens, deren geistvoll anmutiger Inhalt so sehr Goethers Interesse gefunden hat, dab er 1820 in den… Read more

Religion und Staatslehre vereinen sich in dieser politischen Glaubensformel. Aus dieser mittelalterlichen juristischen Fiktion der zwei K√∂rper des K√∂nigs entfaltet Kantorowicz eine Entstehungsgeschichte des modernen Staates, die historische Physiologie der Unterscheidung zwischen der √∂ffentlichen Funktion und der konkreten Person, die sie ausf√ľllt.

This compelling study of leprosy as a literary motif shows the wide-spread extent to which the disease was associated with moral defilement in the Middle-Ages. The book traces the history of leprosy as a mark of immorality and shows how medieval medical writers considered the disease to be the physical manifestation of a moral condition. In treating leprosy as a literary theme, the author conveys with skill and authority the interdependence of medieval literature, science, theology, law, and popular culture.

ABSALOM AND ACHITOPHEL deals with the political crisis of 1679-81. Popular opposition to Charles II - to the methods he used to maintain the royal authority, his attitude to ecclesiastical issues, and his foreign policy - was concentrated in the later 1670's in the Whig or 'country' party. The policy of the Whigs, under the leadership of the Earl of Shaftesbury, included religious toleration and antipopery, the checking of arbitrary government from the throne, and the destruction of the alliance with Catholic France.
