Inhaltsangabe: This book surveys how the peoples bordering the Mediterranean, North Sea, English Channel and eastern Atlantic related to the sea in all its aspects between approximately 1000-1500 A.D. How was the sea represented in poems and other writings? What kinds of boats were used and how were they built? How easy was it to navigate on short or long passages? Was seaborne trade crucial to the economy of this area? Did naval warfare loom large in the minds of medieval rulers? What can be said more generally about the lives of those who went to sea or who lived by its shores? These are the major questions which are addressed in this book, which is based on extensive research in both maritime archives and also in secondary literature. It concludes by pointing out how the relatively enclosed maritime world of Western Europe was radically changed by the voyages of the late fifteenth century across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and round Africa to India.

Rezension: This a fine book and deserves a wide readership. .. is far more than a just an excellent and information-packed introduction to the maritime history of medieval Europe. Enlivened with many quotes from contemporary poems and letters, it inspires one to want to find out more. --The Authors Journal Compilation

Verlagsfrisch New copy International Medieval Research (IMR 21) Travels and Mobilities in the Middle Ages From the Atlantic to the Black Sea M. O'Doherty, F. Schmieder (eds.) XLIII+344 p., 20 b/w ill., 156 x 234 mm, 2015 ISBN: 978-2-503-55449-5 Languages: English Hardback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 90,00 Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to medieval travels and mobilities from the International Medieval Congress, Leeds, 2010. This collection of research, which brings together contributions from scholars around the world, reflects the range and variety of work that is currently being undertaken in the field of travel and mobility in the European Middle Ages. The essays draw on diverse methodological approaches, from the archival and literary to the art historical and archaeological. The collection focuses not just on key medieval modes of travel and mobility, but also on themes whose relevance continues to resonate in the modern world. Topics touched upon include religious and diplomatic journeys, migration, mobility and governance, gendered mobilities, material culture and mobility, mobility and disability, travel and status, and notions of home and abroad. Broad themes are approached through case studies of individuals, families, and groups, ranging from kings, queens, and nobles to friars, exiles, and students. The geographical reach of the collection is particularly broad, encompassing travellers from Southern, Western, Northern, Central and Eastern Europe and journeys to destinations as diverse as Scandinavia, the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, and the Indian Ocean. A wide-ranging and detailed introduction situates the collection in its scholarly context.

Buchbeschreibung Mohr Siebeck, 05.2012., 2012. Leinen. Buchzustand: Neu. 364 S. Rachel S. Mikva undertakes a close examination of Midrash vaYosha, a medieval rabbinic text which explicates the Song at the Sea (Ex 15:1-18) and the events of the exodus from Egypt leading up to that climactic moment. Relatively short midrashim focusing on a brief biblical narrative or theme were composed in large numbers during the medieval period, and their extant manuscripts are sufficient in number to demonstrate the great popularity of the genre. Based on early manuscripts, two different recensions are transcribed and translated with significant annotation exploring variants, parallels, exegetical significance and literary style. A thorough historical analysis suggests that the midrash was performed as explication of the Torah reading at a certain point in its development - part of the gradual attenuation of live Targum. As Midrash vaYosha leaves the synagogue, its narrative dimension grows tremendously, yielding significant insight into the development of medieval Jewish exegesis.

Buchbeschreibung Brepols Publishers 0, Versand an Institutionen auch gegen Rechnung. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Verlagsfrisch New copy. Versand an Institutionen auch gegen Rechnung (illustrator). Verlagsfrisch New copy Harvey Miller Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History (HMSAH 58) The Mermaids of Venice. Fantastic Sea Creatures in Venetian Renaissance Art A. Luchs VIII+273 p., 234 b/w ill. + 44 colour ill., 220 x 275 mm, 2010 ISBN: 978-1-905375-45-5 Languages: English Hardback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 125,00 The arts of Renaissance Venice teem with sea monsters. Chief among these are mermaids and mermen--graceful hybrid beings human from the waist up, but with the lower body and tail of a fish, dolphin or sea serpent. Other sea hybrids--horses, bulls, panthers, even an elephant--also swim through Venetian art in finned and fish-tailed forms. Such creatures emerge from stone in the shadowy churches and the sunlit courtyard of the Palazzo Ducale, crown the wooden frame of a Giovanni Bellini altarpiece, and encircle the bronze flagpole bases in Piazza San Marco. Their gilded sugar apparitions graced banquet tables for illustrious visitors, and their descendents still glide through the canals in the form of brass seahorses set above the sides of gondolas This book focuses on the conceptions of artists who made marine hybrids as some of the most engaging inventions of the Renaissance in Venice and its subject city Padua. The chapters deal with five functional contexts: book decoration of the 1470s and 80s; tomb monuments of the 1480s and 90s; church decoration of the same years, particularly at Santa Maria dei Miracoli; centers of political activity, including civic settings in Venice and the palaces of powerful mainland employers of Venetian artists; and finally, private homes, where owners could hold small bronze sea hybrids in their hands, often as objects for use. A prologue introduces the "heritage of monsters" from the ancient and medieval worlds, the better to show how Venetian artists adapted these to new purposes. Exploring the ways in which artists could interpret and contemporary viewers might experience these wide-ranging sea-creatures, the book brings their best images together as a source of delight. Review "Ce genre de travail est non seulement plaisant, il peut se révéler aussi plein d'intérêt. (.) Il faut en savoir gré à l'auteur." (L. Smolderen, dans: Revue Belge d'Archéologie et d'Histoire de l'Art, n° 80, 2011.1, p. 206). Buch. Artikel-Nr. 3081
