Barbarians and Bishops. Army, Church, and State in the Age of Arcadius and Chrysostom, by J. H. W. G. Liebeschuetz, - Liebeschuetz, J. H. W. G.:
Liebeschuetz, J. H. W. G.:
Oxford, Clarendon Press 1990.

XIV, 312 Seiten, mit einigen Tafeln, Gr. 8° (23,5 x 16 cm), Orig.-Pappeinband.

Aus dem Klappentext: "Barbarians and Bishops is concerned with two fundamental themes of late antiquity: barbarization of the Roman army and the interrelation of Church and secular government. The conspicuous role, played by barbarian, particulary German, soliders in the late Roman state has always been recognized but has still not been satisfactorily explained. This is not surprising, since the development which compelled the Empire to call in foreigners for its defence is a complex one, related to changes in basic structures and attitudes of Roman society. One of these was the triumph of Christianity, which required the abandonment of a civic religion closely integrated to secular government. Conflict between representatives of the pagan Empire and major religious leaders was unthinkable and at the same time only too easy, when the Church had an elaborate empire-wide organization which reccived some support from the Empire but was quite independent of it. In this book, Professor Liebeschuetz provides illuminating discussion an a number of themes relating to the simultaneous demilitarization and Christianization of the Roman Empire. Part I deals with Alaric's Goths, whilst parts II and III deal with two conflicts at Constantinople: the Gainas rising and the confliet between the authorities and-the bishop of Constantinople, John Chrysostom." - Einband etwas berieben.

Andrew Appels, Stuart Laycock, Greg Payne (Editor).
Witham Greenlight Publishing 2007
Softcover, 285pp., 25x19cm., ills. in col., new. ISBN 9781897738290.

The history of Britain is intimately tied up with the Roman army which for almost 400 years kept most of this island Roman. Much of the story of the soldiers who lived, fought and died for Rome here, can today only be reconstructed from the remnants of the kit they wore. Over the centuries that the Roman army occupied Britain, its soldiers used a bewildering variety of fittings. Many of them are not easily recognisable to the modern eye, particularly when in fragmentary state. Too many important items are lying discarded in detectorists' junk boxes, because they are simply not being recognised for what they are. That small piece of twisted copper alloy could, in reality, be a Roman military fitting with a fascinating story to tell. In this book, Laycock and Appels set out to document and identify many of the items of Roman military kit encountered today by detectorists and archaeologists and set them in their historical and military context. Late Roman buckles, and their British derivatives, for instance, give a unique insight into the last decades of Roman rule in the country and ultimately may hold the secret to the collapse of Roman Britain. Did Roman power start to collapse 40 years before the end? Was the population of Britain armed in the late 4th century? Did the British tribes re-assert their authority and raise militias for renewed inter-tribal conflict? The next buckle or fitting uncovered could help answer these questions and many more about the history of Roman Britain. But they'll only provide answers if they can be correctly identified. Instead of just line drawings, this text is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of full colour photographs of surviving Roman military kit, most of them never before published. Some of these items are unique. Many of them are rare. This is a resource for detectorists, archaeologists, museum staff, collectors and re-enactors alike, and will be of interest also to many with a more general interest in the Roman military. Contents include: Early Empire Buckles -Dolphin Buckles - Dragon Buckles - Bird Buckles - Horse head buckles - Lion Buckles - Strap ends - Belt stiffeners - Belt Plates - Helmet Fittings - Sword and Dagger Fittings - Armour Fittings - Shield Fittings - Apron Fittings - Horse harness Fittings - Roman military glossary - Bibliography

Tyssot de Patot and His Work 1655-1738 - Aubrey Rosenberg
Aubrey Rosenberg
Springer,Jan 1975
ISBN 9789401745482

NEUBUCH! 235x155x13 mm; 1972.. Aufl.

Although the novel, V oyages el avantures de ] aques Masse, caused some thing of a stir during the first half of the eighteenth century, its author, Simon Tyssot de Patot (1655-1738), remained largely unknown in his lifetime, and it is only in this century that he has been recognized as one of the countless soldiers in the vast army of philosophes that assaulted the bastions of religious, political and sodallife in Europe of the late seven 1 teenth and early eighteenth centuries. Tyssot was a Huguenot who lived most of his life in Holland where he pursued a career as professor of mathematics in the sodal and cultural 1 Tyssot and his work seem to have been first brought to the attention of modem writers by the German critics during their investigation of the type of desert island or robinsonade literature that preceded and followed Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. The earliest reference I have found occurs in A. Kippenberg, Robinson in Deutschland bis zur Insel Felsenburg (1713-43), Hanover, 1892, pp. 66-67. Tyssot's name and work appear to have been first linked with the development of socialism in A. Lichtenberger, Le Socialisme au XVIIIe siecle, Paris, 1895, p. 44. Tyssot's Voyages et avantures de ]aques Masse was discussed for its literary merits in A. LeBreton, Le Roman au dix huitieme siecle, Paris, 1898. LeBreton did not know that Tyssot was the author.

O. Merisalo (ed.)
Brepols Verlag
ISBN 9782503524207

Textes et Etudes du Moyen Age TEMA 35 Frontiers in the Middle Ages Proceedings of the Third European Congress of the Medieval Studies (Jyväskylä, 10-14 June 2003) O. Merisalo (ed.) approx. XII+761 p., 20 b/w ill., 165 x 240 mm, 2006 ISBN: 978-2-503-52420-7 Languages: English, French, German Paperback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 65,00 The first uses of the term frontiere in thirteenth-fourteenth-century French were military, referring to the first line of troops in a battle. In architecture it meant the front of a building, and at the end of the fourteenth century it was first used as a geographical term, in Spain specifically about the divide between the Christians and the Muslims. More than obstacles, medieval frontiers - whether geographical, political, military, intellectual or artistic - seem to have been bridges and points of contact. Frontiers was the theme of the Third European Congress of Medieval Studies organised by the FIDEM in Jyväskylä, Finland, in 2003. True to the nature of the FIDEM, it was highly interdisciplinary, bringing together scholars from all over the world, addressing problems ranging from Byzantine administration to Icelandic vernacular scribal culture, during a week of extraordinary intellectual excitement. This volume brings together forty-four contributions by specialists of history, history of ideas, medieval philosophy, philology, linguistics, literature as well as manuscript and archival studies.

JULIANUS.
Amsterdam, Chez F. l'Honore, 1728.
4to. (XII, including frontispiece),XLII,286,(2);196 p., portrait, numerous text illustrations. Full contemporary calf 26 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 2,496; Brunet 3,597: 'edition recherchee'; Ebert 10997; Graesse 3,497; Neue Pauly, Suppl. 2, p. 338, where the edition of 1683 is mentioned; 4 copies in STCN) (Details: Gilt back with 5 raised bands; red morocco shield in the second compartment. Title in red en black; finely engraved frontispiece depicting a banquet scene with dining and discussing deified Roman emperors; engraved vignette of Julian on title; engraved portrait, depicting at full length a statue of count Jean Matthias de Schoulembourg, commander in chief of the Venetian army, to whom the translation has been dedicated. At the beginning of the dedication an engraved headpiece with the coat of arms of Schoulembourg. Engravings of coins and medals throughout the text, made by the famous Bernard Picart) (Condition: Cover worn at extremities; back rubbed; joints starting to split, but strong; tail of the spine chafed; both boards slightly scratched. Paper yellowing. Some faint foxing. Small wormhole in the blank guttur of 24 leaves, far from the text) (Note: The Roman emperor Flavius Claudius Julianus, 331-363, is the best documented ruler of late antiquity. He was a nephew of Constantine the Great, ca. 280-337 A.D., who had adopted christianity, and imposed it on his empire. For dynastic reasons Constantine in between wiped out in a massacre the boys family. In exile Julian covertly converted to neoplatonic polytheism. Julian was later at the age of 24 appointed Caesar by the successor of Constantine, the emperor Constantius II. In this capacity he proved himself a successful general in Gaule, where he repeatedly drove back and crushed the invading Germanic tribes. After the death of Constantius in 361 Julian openly adopted and promoted paganism. Hence the title 'Apostata', because he was the last emperor who rejected and challenged christianity. He tried to revive the pagan state cult, and to restore the traditional pagan religious practices. His reign however lasted only 18 months, from 361 till 363. 'Julian's voice can be heard memorably in his surviving writings, particularly in his letters, in a fierce denunciation of the people of Antioch (Misopogon, Beard-Hater), and in a satire on his imperial predecessors (Convivium sive Caesares), which ends with a vicious portrait fo Christ'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambridge Massachusetts, 2010, p. 500) Julian was both philosopher and a men of letters, and far too human for his time. His work Against the Galileans (Christians), meant to refute christian dogmas, is lost, but partly survives in fragments and excerpts in Contra Iulianum, a work full of slander, by a fierce enemy of Julian, Cyrillus, bishop of Alexandria. A French translation of Julian's satire 'Convivium sive Caesares', commonly called the 'Caesars' was published in 1666 by the Swiss scholar and diplomat Ezechiel Spanheim, 1629-1710. It was repeated in 1683 in Paris, and in 1728 in Amsterdam, now with 300 engravings of medals and coins. Spanheim was a prominent name in the field of numismatics, who is best known for his 'De praestantia et usu veterum numismatum' of 1664, revised and enlarged in 1706. In 1680 Spanheim entered the service of electoral of Brandenburg as minister of state. As ambassador of the Great Elector he spent nine years at the court of Paris. After the Peace of Ryswick in 1697 he returned as ambassador to France where he remained until 1702. In that year he went on his final diplomatic mission, as first Prussian ambassador to England. He died in London in 1710, having eaten too much grapes, Clericus tells us. On the very day of the coronation of Frederik I as king of Prusia, (18th of January 1701), Spanheim was made Baron, this to thank him for his services. Baron von Spanheim had an encyclopedic knowledge of the ancient world. In 1696 Spanheim published an edition of the Opera omnia of Julian. This 1728 edition is the third of that translation. Spanheim had printed, as is explained by the Swiss/Dutch scholar Jean Clericus, beneath the text observations to help less well informed 'ordinary' men of letters. This ingenious satire is difficult reading, 'being full of erudition, and allusions to many facts, customs, and opinions of Greek and Latin authors'. At the end there are 196 pages with 'preuves des remarques sur les Cesars de l'empereur Julien' with remarks and discussions for scholars and more experienced men of letters. The translation, Clericus assures us, 'is written in a pure style, and is very accurate; otherwise that piece of Julian would have lost its beauty. Anyone that compares it with the (earlier) Latin versions of Cantoclarus and Cunaeus, will easily percieve that those translations wanted to be mended, and that many passages were spoiled or unintellegible. Besides, those translators did not write a sufficient number of remarks to make one understand the sense and design of Julian'. (A sympathetic and informative obituary of Spanheim by Johannes Clericus was published in the 'Memoirs of literature, containing a large account of many valuable books, letters and dissertations upon several subjects', Second edition, London, 1722, p. 412-426)) (Provenance: From the Rostagni Library. 'The Rostagni private library has been built over a time of 133 years, between 1880 and 2013, by 3 generations of collectors: Augusto Gabinio (1863-1939), internist, his nephew Augusto Rostagni (1892-1961), classical philologist at the University of Turin, and his son Luigi Rostagni (1932), Operational Director. (...) Augusto Rostagni taught Ancient literature in various Italian Universities. In 1928 he was appointed professor in Latin literature at the University of Turin, an office he fulfilled until his death in 1961. He became one of Italy's most authorative philologists of the 20th century. He held positions of President of the Turin Institute of Classical Philology, Dean of the Department of Literature and Philosophy, Editor of the Rivista di Filologia Classica, President of the 'Accademia delle Scienze di Torino'. He was a well-known member of many Italian and foreign academies and institutions, amongst them the Accademia dei Lincei. The Department of Philology, Linguistics & Classical Tradition of the University of Turin is named after him.'

Little Failure - Gary Shteyngart
Gary Shteyngart
Random House Inc.,Jan 2014
ISBN 9780679643753

NEUBUCH! 241x169x30 mm

Igor, ein asthmatischer kleiner Junge, der mit seinen Eltern in Leningrad lebt, wächst mit Sehnsüchten auf: nach Essen, nach Bestätigung, nach Wörtern. Als er fünf ist, schreibt er unter dem Einfluss seines Lieblingsbuchs Die wunderbare Reise des kleinen Nils Holgersson mit den Wildgänsen seinen ersten Roman, Lenins wunderbare Wildgänse , und seine Großmutter gibt ihm für jede Seite eine Scheibe Käse. Damit er weiter zu Kräften kommt und auch seine Höhenangst überwindet, bringt sein Vater im Wohnzimmer eine Sprossenwand an, und trotz Schwindel und Schweißausbrüchen träumt Igor hoch droben, er werde Kosmonaut. Zwei Jahre später, 1979, wandert die jüdische Familie nach Amerika aus, aber erst unterwegs erfährt er mit Schrecken, wohin die Reise geht: Zum Feind. Und doch findet Igor, der sich nun Gary nennt, in New York seine erste Spielkameradin überhaupt, ein Mädchen, dem ein Auge fehlt. Ich bin Einwanderer, und sie hat nur ein Auge, also sind wir gleich. Diese Geschichte eines Jungen, der von seinen Eltern zärtlich kleiner Versager genannt wird, weil man ihn zwar abgöttisch liebt, aber nicht so recht an sein Glück und seinen Erfolg im Leben glaubt, ist ein an Menschenkenntnis und Emotionen beglückend reiches Buch voller Humor, obwohl die Familie wegen Hitler und Stalin nicht viel zu lachen hat und Alltagsnöte sich auftürmen wie Berge. Eine berührende und zugleich komische Kindheitsgeschichte: fesselnd, meisterhaft und da sie Gary Shteyngarts eigene Geschichte ist auch wahr. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY TIME NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review - The Washington Post - NPR - The Economist - The Guardian - Publishers Weekly - BookPage - The Telegraph - The Independent After three acclaimed novels, Gary Shteyngart turns to memoir in a candid, witty, deeply poignant account of his life so far. Shteyngart shares his American immigrant experience, moving back and forth through time and memory with self-deprecating humor, moving insights, and literary bravado. The result is a resonant story of family and belonging that feels epic and intimate and distinctly his own. Born Igor Shteyngart in Leningrad during the twilight of the Soviet Union, the curious, diminutive, asthmatic boy grew up with a persistent sense of yearning - for food, for acceptance, for words - desires that would follow him into adulthood. At five, Igor wrote his first novel, Lenin and His Magical Goose, and his grandmother paid him a slice of cheese for every page. In the late 1970s, world events changed Igor's life. Jimmy Carter and Leonid Brezhnev made a deal: exchange grain for the safe passage of Soviet Jews to America - a country Igor viewed as the enemy. Along the way, Igor became Gary so that he would suffer one or two fewer beatings from other kids. Coming to the United States from the Soviet Union was equivalent to stumbling off a monochromatic cliff and landing in a pool of pure Technicolor. Shteyngart's loving but mismatched parents dreamed that he would become a lawyer or at least a 'conscientious toiler' on Wall Street, something their distracted son was simply not cut out to do. Fusing English and Russian, his mother created the term Failurchka - Little Failure - which she applied to her son. With love. Mostly. As a result, Shteyngart operated on a theory that he would fail at everything he tried. At being a writer, at being a boyfriend, and, most important, at being a worthwhile human being. Swinging between a Soviet home life and American aspirations, Shteyngart found himself living in two contradictory worlds, all the while wishing that he could find a real home in one. And somebody to love him. And somebody to lend him sixty-nine cents for a McDonald's hamburger. Provocative, hilarious, and inventive, Little Failure reveals a deeper vein of emotion in Gary Shteyngart's prose. It is a memoir of an immigrant family coming to America, as told by a lifelong misfit who forged from his imagination an essential literary voice and, against all odds, a place in the world. SHORTLISTED FOR THE SPEAR'S BOOK AWARD IN MEMOIR - LONGLISTED FOR THE JQ-WINGATE LITERARY PRIZE 'Hilarious and moving . . . The army of readers who love Gary Shteyngart is about to get bigger.' - The New York Times Book Review 'A memoir for the ages . . . brilliant and unflinching.' - Mary Karr 'Dazzling . . . a rich, nuanced memoir . . . It's an immigrant story, a coming-of-age story, a becoming-a-writer story, and a becoming-a-mensch story, and in all these ways it is, unambivalently, a success.' - Meg Wolitzer, NPR 'Literary gold . . . [a] bruisingly funny memoir.' - Vogue 'A giant success.' - Entertainment Weekly '[ Little Failure ] finds the delicate balance between sidesplitting and heartbreaking.' - O: The Oprah Magazine

DeArabizing Arabia - Saad D. Abulhab
Saad D. Abulhab
Blautopf Publishing,Nov 2011
ISBN 9780984984305

NEUBUCH! 229x152x18 mm

This book is a comprehensive reference on the history of Arabic Language and script, which goes beyond the sole discussion of technical matters. It studies objectively the evidence presented by modern-day western archeological discoveries together with the evidence presented by the indispensable scholarly work and research of the past Islamic Arab civilization era. The book scrutinizes modern western theories about the history of the Arabs and Arabic language and script in connection with the roles played by Western Near East scholarship, religion and colonial history in the formation of current belief system vs. Arab history and language, which is an essential step to study this correlated and complex topic objectively. In his book, the author explores the relevant facts of history and geography as crucial defining factors in the study of history of Arabic language and script. He offers a brief balanced account on the important topic of Muhammad leadership and Islam in the formation of Arabia, and investigates the Quran as a key evidence and reference of the Arabic language and script. As a research tool, this book presents in-depth tracings and readings of the most relevant inscriptions and the findings accumulated by the author over one and a half year of research. Particularly, it presents new comprehensive readings of the important Umm al-Jimal and al-Namarah Nabataean Arabic inscriptions. The al-Namarah stone which was discovered by French archeologist Dussaud in 1901 (displayed today on a wall in the Louvre Museum of Paris) was assumed for more than a century to be the tombstone of the prominent pre-Islamic Arab king, Umru' al-Qays bin 'Amru. After re-tracing and re-reading its complex inscription, the author concluded it was actually about a previously unknown personality named 'Akdi, possibly a high ranking Arab soldier in the Roman army or an Arab tribal leader, not the burial stone of King Umru' al-Qays or even about him. Similarly, the author proves beyond doubt that the important Umm al-Jimal Nabataean Arabic inscription was not the burial stone of Faihru bin Sali, but Faru' bin Sali. The two inscriptions are among only four Nabataean inscriptions believed by Western scholars to be written in the old Arabic language. These are referenced heavily today as evidence linking the Arabic script to the Nabataean Aramaic script. Utilizing classic Arabic and grammar tools and challenging their accuracy at times, the author findings in this book could potentially amend several historical and linguistic facts as told today by history textbooks. In his book, the author, a known Arabic type designer, studies with an investigative expert eye the early shapes of the pre-Islamic Arabic script and compares them to those of Musnad Arabic and late Nabataean Aramaic inscriptions, in addition to those of the early Islamic Arabic manuscripts and papyri. He concludes that the early Arabic script was not an evolved Nabataean script, but likely an independently derived script of the old Musnad Arabic script, with clear Nabataean influence. Although this book is conceived as a reference tool for scholars and researchers, other readers may find its topics and captivating arguments valid enough to debate and to study further. All chapters can be read independently. There are more than 40 figures and illustrations to aid the reader throughout the book. The first two chapters are intended as introductory essays regarding the history of Arabia (people and language) and the role of Western scholarship. To facilitate the selective and independent reading of the last three chapters, which presents the author research findings and conclusions, the book included (in addition to the chapter-specific references already offered throughout the whole book) chapter-specific introductions and conclusions.

NEUBUCH! 229x152x13 mm; Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1972.

Although the novel, Voyages et avantures de J aques Masse, caused some thing of a stir during the first half of the eighteenth century, its author, Simon Tyssot de Patot (1655-1738), remained largely unknown in his lifetime, and it is only in this century that he has been recognized as one of the countless soldiers in the vast army of philosophes that assaulted the bastions of religious, political and social life in Europe of the late seven 1 teenth and early eighteenth centuries. Tyssot was a Huguenot who lived most of his life in Holland where he pursued a career as professor of mathematics in the social and cultural 1 Tyssot and his work seem to have been first brought to the attention of modern writers by the German critics during their investigation of the type of desert island or robinsonade literature that preceded and followed Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. The earliest reference I have found occurs in A. Kippenberg, Robinson in Deutschland bis zur Insel Felsenburg (1713-43), Hanover, 1892, pp. 66-67. Tyssot's name and work appear to have been first linked with the development of socialism in A. Lichtenberger, Le Socialisme au XVIIIe siecle, Paris, 1895, p. 44. Tyssot's Voyages et avantures de Jaques Masse was discussed for its literary merits in A. LeBreton, Le Roman au dix huitieme siecie, Paris, 1898. LeBreton did not know that Tyssot was the author.
