De Middeleeuwse kloostergeschiedenis van de Nederlanden deel 3: Groningen
In de Middeleeuwen telde de provincie Groningen meer dan dertig kloosters. De kloosters waren centra van religieus leven, van wetenschap en boekproductie. Ze waren politiek en economisch van grote betekenis omdat ze doorgaans veel grond in eigendom hadden. Het belangrijkste Groninger klooster was ongetwijfeld de gestichte Sint Bernardusabdij van Aduard. Na het midden van de vijftiende eeuw was de abdij een trefpunt voor humanistische wetenschappers. Tot de Aduarder kring behoren namen als de nu nog bekende Rudolf Agricola en Wessel Gansfort. De Tachtigjarige Oorlog (1568-1648) maakte in Stad en Ommelanden een einde aan het katholicisme, dus ook aan het kloosterleven. In 1594 werden de kloosterbezittingen geconfisqueerd door de provincie Groningen. In dit boek worden de opkomst, bloei en ondergang van het Groninger kloosterwezen beschreven. Na twee inleidende hoofdstukken worden de afzonderlijke kloosters van de verschillende orden belicht. Daarbij wordt ook in beeld gebracht wat er nu nog van die rijke geschiedenis te zien is.

De ridders van de Ronde Tafel.. Arturverhalen uit de Lage Landen
De mooie en spannende verhalen over de legendarische koning Artur en zijn dappere ridders zijn nog altijd bekend en geliefd. Het zijn geschiedenissen vol onverschrokken ridders, mooie maar vaak geslepen jonkvrouwen, draken en monsters, reuzen en dwergen. Loyaliteit, eer, dapperheid en hoofsheid spelen de hoofdrol in de avonturen van Walewein, Keye, Lanceloot, Ferguut, Perchevaal en natuurlijk Artur zelf. Reis mee op zoek naar het zwevende schaakspel, ontmoet een in een vos omgetoverde prins, ontrafel romantische misverstanden, vecht mee in alle veldslagen: de Arturromans bieden de lezer geen moment rust, maar gaan van de ene actiescene naar de andere. Er vallen rake klappen en de ontberingen zijn enorm. Lees en sta versteld.

Voor het eerst zijn al deze prachtige en inspirerende verhalen in een band verzameld en stijlvast vertaald in modern Nederlands. Per verhaal is er een schitterende contemporaine afbeelding opgenomen. Uren leesplezier gegarandeerd met de mythische verhalen rond de beroemde en onsterfelijke ridders van de Ronde Tafel. Vertaald door Ingrid Biesheuvel (1951). Zij is onderzoeksmedewerker van Frits van Oostrom en vertaalde eerder werk van Jacob van Maerlant en Floris en Blancefloer, en verzorgde een deel middeleeuwse verhalen voor de Feniksreeks.

Rottenburger Jahrbuch fur Kirchengeschichte 28 (2009). Zensur abweichender Meinungen durch Kirche und Staat
Im Jahr 1907 versuchte der Vatikan mit dem Dekret "Lamentabili" und der Enzyklika "Pascendi" moderne Denkansätze in der katholischen Kirche zu unterbinden. Ausgehend von diesen zentralen Dokumenten zeichnen die Beiträge im neuen Rottenburger Jahrbuch für Kirchengeschichte die Entwicklung der Kontrolle von Wissen durch Kirche und Staat im neuzeitlichen Europa nach. Ein besonderes Augenmerk legen die Beiträge auf den Modernismusstreit innerhalb der katholischen Kirche. Ein eigener Abschnitt ist den "Modernisten" der Diözese Rottenburg gewidmet. Ein umfangreicher Besprechungsteil schließt den Band ab.

Abelard, Pierre
Gesprekken tussen een filosoof,een jood en een christen
De naam van Pierre Abelard wordt door vrijwel iedereen meteen verbonden met die van Heloise. De bijzondere verhouding tussen deze twee middeleeuwse geliefden heeft zozeer de aandacht getrokken, dat andere aspecten van het leven en de werken van Abelard onderbelicht zijn gebleven. Abelards werken zijn echter van enorme invloed geweest op de theologie en de filosofie. Zijn gedurfde en voor zijn tijd zeer moderne uitspraken leidden ertoe dat enkele van zijn boeken door de kerkelijke autoriteiten werden veroordeeld en verbrand. Tegen het einde van zijn leven, vermoedelijk in 1136, schreef Abelard een werk dat een nog altijd actueel thema behandelt: wederzijds respect en tolerantie tegenover verschillende levensbeschouwingen. In Gesprek tussen een filosoof, een jood en een christen geeft Abelard geen hierarchisch waardeoordeel en onderstreept hij dat het geloof het gebruik van het gezond verstand niet uitsluit.De tekst biedt ons bij uitstek de kans om kennis te maken met minder algemeen bekende aspecten van het werk van de veelzijdige Abelard.

Aberth, J.
From the Brink of the Apocalypse. Confronting Famine, War, Plague, and Death in the Later Middle Ages
Europe during the later Middle Ages was a scene of unparalleled chaos. At no time in history did so much misery, in the form of war, famine, plague and death, descend upon the earth - at times it must have seemed like the end of the world people constantly feared was truly at hand. Taking his themes from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the author describes how the Great Famine and Black Death swept away nearly half of Europe's population, while the royal houses of England and France were engaged in a Hundred Years War that meant constant political strife. Yet, as is revealed in this work, a firm belief in the ways of providence and the first stirrings of greater political freedom allowed communities to endure. Far from conventional notions of the "waning" of the Middle Ages, John Aberth reveals a world that we can recognize as very similar to our own.

Adams, M. McCord
Some Later Medieval Theories of the Eucharist. Thomas Aquinas, Gilles of Rome, Duns Scotus, and William Ockham
How can the Body and Blood of Christ, without ever leaving heaven, come to be really present on eucharistic altars where the bread and wine still seem to be? Thirteenth and fourteenth century Christian Aristotelians thought the answer had to be "transubstantiation."

Acclaimed philosopher, Marilyn McCord Adams, investigates these later medieval theories of the Eucharist, concentrating on the writings of Thomas Aquinas, Giles of Rome, Duns Scotus, and William Ockham, with some reference to Peter Lombard, Hugh of St. Victor, and Bonaventure. She examines how their efforts to formulate and integrate this theological datum provoked them to make significant revisions in Aristotelian philosophical theories regarding the metaphysical structure and location of bodies, differences between substance and accidents, causality and causal powers, and fundamental types of change. Setting these developments in the theological context that gave rise to the question draws attention to their understandings of the sacraments and their purpose, as well as to their understandings of the nature and destiny of human beings.

Adams concludes that their philosophical modifications were mostly not ad hoc, but systematic revisions that made room for transubstantiation while allowing Aristotle still to describe what normally and naturally happens. By contrast, their picture of the world as it will be (after the last judgment) seems less well integrated with their sacramental theology and their understandings of human nature.

Aelred van Rievaulx
Affectus. De spirituele kant van vriendschap en religie
Vertaling van de geschriften Over spirituele vriendschap, Toen Jezus twaalf jaar was en Gebed tot de Goede Herder

De cistercienzer auteurs van de twaalfde eeuw gaven nauwkeurig aan waarnaar onze liefde kan uitgaan: naar onszelf, naar de naaste en naar God. Ze klasseerden alle verlangens en deugden nauwkeurig in overeenkomstige categorieen. Ze waren ook onuitputtelijk in het spreken over praktijken van ascese en devotie. Maar over het functioneren zelf van het liefdesproces bleven ze opmerkelijk zwijgzaam. Een auteur doorbrak deze terughoudendheid: Aelred van Rievaulx.

Uit de drie vertaalde geschriften blijkt de betekenis van Aelred van Rievaulx voor zijn tijd, en voor de onze, met name op het gebied van het psychologisch proces van de liefde en de betekenis van het mensgeworden Woord voor de ontwikkeling van het affect. Dit thema wordt natuurlijk gekaderd in de ruimere cistercienzer 'utopie' van de liefde, die een glimp, hoe armzalig ook, wil doen oplichten van de realiteit van de Oneindige.

Aelst, van J.
Vruchten van Passie. De laatmiddeleeuwse passieliteratuur verkend aan de hand van Suso`s honderd artikelen
De herdenking van het lijden en sterven van Jezus vormde een cruciaal onderdeel van het geestelijk leven in de Late Middeleeuwen. Dag in dag uit mediteerden religieuzen over de passie. Dat vooral in de Nederlanden de passie een hot item was, blijkt uit de talloze overgeleverde passieoefeningen in laatmiddeleeuwse handschriften. De meest verspreide oefening was de Honderd artikelen van de Duitse mysticus Henricus Suso. In elk religieus milieu werd de tekst zodanig bewerkt, dat deze beantwoordde aan de eigen behoeften en de eigen theologische visie op de passie. Door de passiespiritualiteit te relateren aan de historische gebruikscontext van tertiarissen, kruisheren, kartuizers en een Vlaamse kring beïnvloed door rederijkers, elk met zijn eigen theologie en liturgische gewoonten, wordt het moeilijk toegankelijke terrein van de passieliteratuur ontsloten. Dit opent een aspect van het geestelijk verleden waaraan de visuele kunst uit middeleeuwse kerken ons nog steeds herinnert.

De goddelijke komedie
Vertaald door Ike Cialona en Peter Verstegen.

De goddelijke komedie bestaat uit drie grote gedichten, waarin de dichter de drie afdelingen van het hiernamaals bereist. Maar een zuiver religieus gedicht is het niet: zo vertellen de gestraften in hel en vagevuur uitgebreid over de handelwijze op aarde die tot hun bestraffing aanleiding heeft gegeven. Ze doen dat in Dantes befaamde nieuwe, zoete stijl met zijn losjes doorlopende metrum en zijn omarmende rijm, die zijn 'komedie' tot een van de volmaaktste kunstwerken van alle tijden heeft gemaakt.

De goddelijke komedie
UITVERKOCHT

De goddelijke komedie is niet alleen het belangrijkste werk uit de Italiaanse letterkunde, het is ook een van de hoogtepunten van de wereldliteratuur, in een adem genoemd met werken als de Odyssee, Faust, Don Quixot en Macbeth. Van het omvangrijke werk, dat uit ruim 14.000 verzen bestaat, is Dante zowel hoofdpersoon als verteller. Hij beschrijft hierin een denkbeeldige reis door de drie rijken van het hiernamaals: hel, louteringsberg en paradijs. Deze reis voert hem van de diepste ellende van het kwaad naar de uiteindelijke aanschouwing Gods.

Alighieri, Dante
Pleidooi voor de eigen taal
Dante Alighieri's Pleidooi voor de eigen taal, de vertaling van De vulgari eloquentia (1303-1305), is zowel historisch als literair een buitengewoon belangwekkend traktaat. Dante geeft hierin een schets van de ontwikkeling van de natuurlijke talen uit een oerbron, het Hebreeuws dat in het Paradijs werd gesproken. Origineel is ook Dante's kritische behandeling van de verschillende Italiaanse dialecten uit zijn tijd. Hij verdedigt bovendien de autonomie van het Italiaans tegenover het Provencaals dat tot dan toe de Italiaanse literatuur sterk had beinvloed. Hij kent de 'illustere' volkstaal ook een belangrijke politieke functie toe, die van beschavingsmiddel in het door burgeroorlogen geteisterde Italie. Eenheid van taal immers zou helpen een einde te maken aan de heersende bestuurlijk-politieke anarchie.

Dante zingt de lof van de 'illustere' volkstaal. Deze noemt hij 'edeler' dan het Latijn omdat ze als eerste, natuurlijke taal wordt aangeleerd en gesproken. Met dit originele pleidooi voor het gebruik van de eigen taal voor literaire compositie zet Dante een belangrijke stap in de emancipatie van de volkstalen ten opzichte van het 'kunstmatige' Latijn. En tegelijk geeft Dante aan de hand van talloze voorbeelden voor het eerst een poetica voor het schrijven van Italiaanse literatuur, in het bijzonder van de canzone, het type gedicht waarin hij zelf uitblinkt.

Pleidooi voor de eigen taal vormt een interessante getuigenis van de ontwikkeling van Dante als dichter en als criticus van zijn eigen werk. In een uitvoerig nawoord, waarin ook Dante's fameuze brief aan zijn patroon Can Grande della Scala is opgenomen, bespreekt vertaler Lodi Nauta Dante's eigen commentaar op zijn Divina Commedia.

Anselmus van Canterbury
Ondenkbaar dat u niet bestaat (Proslogion)
Vertaald door Vincent Hunink, ingeleid door Wim Verbaal.

God bestaat. Voor Anselmus van Canterbury (1033-1109) staat dat vast. Maar hoe kun je Gods bestaan bewijzen? Daarover schreeft hij een beroemde tekst, die zich laat lezen als een indringend gebed. God is voor Anselmus datgene waarboven niets gedacht kan worden. In zijn betoog wisselt hij argumenten af met bevlogen, lyrische passages. Die krijgen in deze vertaling de volle aandacht. Godsbewijzen verloren wellicht hun zeggingskracht, maar Godsverlangen overbrugt moeiteloos de afstand van duizend jaar die ons van deze tekst scheidt.
Deze vertaling wil bij uitstek recht wil doen aan de lyrische, religieuze component van deze tekst. Dat komt onder meer tot uitdrukking in de typografie, met een afwisseling van 'normaal proza' en meditieve, als poezie gezette tekst.

Apps, L., A. Gow
Male witches in early modern Europe
This is the first ever full book on the subject of male witches addressing incidents of witch-hunting in both Britain and Europe. Uses feminist categories of gender analysis to critique the feminist agenda that mars many studies. Advances a more bal. Critiques historians' assumptions about witch-hunting, challenging the marginalisation of male witches by feminist and other historians. Shows that large numbers of men were accused of witchcraft in their own right, in some regions, more men were accused than women. It uses feminist categories of gender analysis to challenge recent arguments and current orthodoxies providing a more balanced and complex view of witch-hunting and ideas about witches in their gendered forms than has hitherto been available.

Azzolini, Monica
The Duke and the Stars: Astrology and Politics in Renaissance Milan
This study is the first to examine the important political role played by astrology in Italian court culture. Reconstructing the powerful dynamics existing between astrologers and their prospective or existing patrons, The Duke and the Stars illustrates how the "predictive art" of astrology was a critical source of information for Italian Renaissance rulers, particularly in times of crisis. Astrological "intelligence" was often treated as sensitive, and astrologers and astrologer-physicians were often trusted with intimate secrets and delicate tasks that required profound knowledge not only of astrology but also of the political and personal situation of their clients. Two types of astrological predictions, medical and political, were taken into the most serious consideration. Focusing on Milan, Monica Azzolini describes the various ways in which the Sforza dukes (and Italian rulers more broadly) used astrology as a political and dynastic tool, guiding them as they contracted alliances, made political decisions, waged war, planned weddings, and navigated health crises. The Duke and the Stars explores science and medicine as studied and practiced in fifteenth-century Italy, including how astrology was taught in relation to astronomy.

Bailey, Michael D.
Fearful Spirits, Reasoned Follies. The Boundaries of Superstition in Late Medieval Europe
Superstitions are commonplace in the modern world. Mostly, however, they evoke innocuous images of people reading their horoscopes or avoiding black cats. Certain religious practices might also come to mind-praying to St. Christopher or lighting candles for the dead. Benign as they might seem today, such practices were not always perceived that way. In medieval Europe superstitions were considered serious offenses, violations of essential precepts of Christian doctrine or immutable natural laws. But how and why did this come to be? In Fearful Spirits, Reasoned Follies, Michael D. Bailey explores the thorny concept of superstition as it was understood and debated in the Middle Ages.

Bailey begins by tracing Christian thinking about superstition from the patristic period through the early and high Middle Ages. He then turns to the later Middle Ages, a period that witnessed an outpouring of writings devoted to superstition, tracts and treatises with titles such as De superstitionibus and Contra vitia superstitionum. Most were written by theologians and other academics based in Europe's universities and courts, men who were increasingly anxious about the proliferation of suspect beliefs and practices, from elite ritual magic to common healing charms, from astrological divination to the observance of signs and omens. As Bailey shows, however, authorities were far more sophisticated in their reasoning than one might suspect, using accusations of superstition in a calculated way to control the boundaries of legitimate religion and acceptable science. This in turn would lay the conceptual groundwork for future discussions of religion, science, and magic in the early modern world.

Passie en contemplatie. Historische, spirituele en psychologische aspecten van Aelred, abt van Rievaulx
Dit boek gaat over de spirituele theologie en psychologie van een monnik, die leefde in de twaalfde eeuw, geboren in 1110 als zoon van een priester, en uiteindelijk stierf als abt van een van de grootste abdijen van de nieuwe cistercienzer orde in Yorkshire, Rievaulx.

Aelred schreef een aantal historische werken en biografieen, maar is vooral bekend door zijn spirituele geschriften, zoals De spiegel van de liefde en Over de geestelijke vriendschap. In zijn werk toont hij zich een meester in het geestelijk leven en een meester in het taalgebruik. In tegenstelling tot de monniken van de Egyptische woestijn, wees hij op het belang van emoties en vriendschap. Dit laatste bepaalt mede de actualiteitswaarde van Aelreds werk voor onze tijd, met zijn groeiende aandacht voor gevoelens en emotionele drijfveren.

The Crusader States
When the armies of the First Crusade wrested Jerusalem from control of the Fatimids of Egypt in 1099, they believed their victory was an evident sign of God's favour. It was, therefore, incumbent upon them to fulfill what they understood to be God's plan: to reestablish Christian control of Syria and Palestine. This book is devoted to the resulting settlements, the crusader states, that developed around the eastern shores of the Mediterranean and survived until Richard the Lionheart's departure in 1192. Focusing on Jerusalem, Antioch, Tripoli, and Edessa, Malcolm Barber vividly reconstructs the crusaders' arduous process of establishing and protecting their settlements, and the simultaneous struggle of vanquished inhabitants to adapt to life alongside their conquerors. Rich with colourful accounts of major military campaigns, the book goes much deeper, exploring in detail the culture of the crusader states - the complex indigenous inheritance; the architecture; the political, legal, and economic institutions; the ecclesiastical framework through which the crusaders perceived the world; the origins of the Knights Templar and the Hospitallers; and more. With the zest of a scholar pursuing a lifelong interest, Barber presents a complete narrative and cultural history of the crusader states while setting a new standard for the term 'total history'.

The Natural and the Supernatural in the Middle Ages
How did people of the medieval period explain physical phenomena, such as eclipses or the distribution of land and water on the globe? What creatures did they think they might encounter: angels, devils, witches, dogheaded people? This fascinating book explores the ways in which medieval people categorized the world, concentrating on the division between the natural and the supernatural and showing how the idea of the supernatural came to be invented in the Middle Ages. Robert Bartlett examines how theologians and others sought to draw lines between the natural, the miraculous, the marvelous and the monstrous, and the many conceptual problems they encountered as they did so. The final chapter explores the extraordinary thought-world of Roger Bacon as a case study exemplifying these issues. By recovering the mentalities of medieval writers and thinkers the book raises the critical question of how we deal with beliefs we no longer share.

Why Can the Dead Do Such Great Things? Saints and Worshippers from the Martyrs to the Reformation
From its earliest centuries, one of the most notable features of Christianity has been the veneration of the saints--the holy dead. This sweepingly ambitious history from one of the world's leading medieval historians tells the fascinating story of the cult of the saints from its origins in the second-century days of the Christian martyrs to the Protestant Reformation. Drawing on sources from around the Christian world, Robert Bartlett examines all of the most important aspects of the saints--including miracles, relics, pilgrimages, shrines, and the saints' role in the calendar, literature, and art.

As this engaging narrative shows, a wide variety of figures have been venerated as saints: men and women, kings and servant girls, legendary virgins and highly political bishops--and one dog. The book explores the central role played by the bodies and body parts of saints, and the special treatment these relics received: how they were treasured and enshrined, used in war and peace, and faked and traded. The shrines of the saints drew pilgrims, sometimes from hundreds of miles away, and the book describes the routes, dangers, and rewards of pilgrimage, including the thousands of reported miracles. The book surveys the rich literature and images that proliferated around the saints, as well as the saints' impact on everyday life--from the naming of people and places to the shaping of the calendar. Finally, the book considers how the Christian cult of saints compares with apparently similar aspects of other religions.

Robert Bartlett is the Bishop Wardlaw Professor of Mediaeval History at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and a fellow of the British Academy.

Geloof geeft te denken. Opstellen over de theologie van Johannes Duns Scotus
De naam van de franciscaans middeleeuwse theoloog Johannes Duns Scotus (1265/6-1308) geniet brede bekendheid in de wereld van theologie en filosofie. Hij wordt geroemd als een buitengewoon scherpzinnig denker en als de grootste onder de middeleeuwse theologen. Toch wordt zijn werk nauwelijks gelezen, en bestaan er veel misverstanden over zijn denkbeelden.

De oorzaak hiervan ligt voor een belangrijk deel in de hoge moeilijheidsgraad van zijn geschriften, die echter niet wordt veroorzaakt doordat Duns Scotus een duister denker en schrijver zou zijn. Zijn werk is moeilijk toegankelijk vanwege de scholastieke vaktaal, die ontwikkeld is tot op hoog wetenschappelijk niveau. Een ieder die de moeite neemt zich deze specialistische taal van het scholastieke denken eigen te maken, zal door Duns Scotus worden ingeleid in een verrassend transparante wereld van theologisch denken, waarin veel vragen en problemen worden opgehelderd vanuit het geloofsvertrouwen in de goddelijke liefde.

Deze bundel wil de lezer helpen toegang te krijgen tot de denkwereld van Duns Scotus, die van blijvende betekenis is voor kerk en theologie. Fundamentele themas op de terreinen van spiritualiteit, ethiek, antropologie, godsleer en christologie komen ter sprake, en worden ontplooid binnen een samenhangend theologisch kader. Deze themas worden niet alleen doordacht op hoog abstractie--niveau, maar even zo goed vertaald naar de praktijk van het concrete leven (zie bijv. het hoofdstuk over de slavernij).

Het gedachtegoed van Duns Scotus heeft grote oecumenische betekenis. Belangrijke geschilpunten die sinds de Reformatie bestaan tussen de rooms-katholieke en protestantse traditie, kunnen overwonnen worden vanuit de verdieping van het theologisch denken die Duns Scotus ons biedt.

Bellamah, T. F.
The Biblical Interpretation of William of Alton
Studies of medieval Biblical interpretation usually focus on the printed literature, neglecting the vast majority of relevant works. Timothy Bellamah offers a groundbreaking examination of the exegesis of William of Alton, a thirteenth-century Dominican regent master at Paris whose commentaries have never previously appeared in print. As a near contemporary of Hugh of St. Cher, Bonaventure, Albert the Great, and Thomas Aquinas, William was an important representative of university exegesis at a time of rapidly changing methods and remarkable intellectual development. His commentaries are valuable resources for understanding Biblical study of the thirteenth century, in the schoolroom and in the pulpit. Yet study of William's work has been impeded by the dubious authenticity of numerous commentaries questionably attributed to him over the centuries. Bellamah addresses these complex problems by unearthing evidence of authorship in each commentary's style and methodology. This inquiry employs the traits of William's commentaries as criteria for constituting a list of works that can be reliably attributed to him, which, in turn, provides a crucial basis for studying his exegesis. William was a man of his time, but even more than his contemporaries he was deeply interested in history and the literal sense, which he understood to be the intention of Scripture's authors, divine and human. He took a keen interest in Biblical history and put to use a wide array of procedures for textual, linguistic, and rhetorical analysis. At the same time, he remained aware of the spiritual senses and the diverse elements of the exegetical and theological tradition in which he stood.

Accounts of Medieval Constantinople. The Patria
Greek - english

The Patria is a fascinating four-book collection of short historical notes, stories, and legends about the buildings and monuments of Constantinople, compiled in the late tenth century by an anonymous author who made ample use of older sources. It also describes the foundation and early (pre-Byzantine) history of the city, and includes the Narrative on the Construction of Hagia Sophia, a semi-legendary account of Emperor Justinian I's patronage of this extraordinary church (built between 532 and 537).

The Patria constitutes a unique record of popular traditions about the city, especially its pagan statues, held by its medieval inhabitants. At the same time it is the only Medieval Greek text to present a panorama of the city as it existed in the middle Byzantine period. Despite its problems of historical reliability, the Patria is still one of our main guides for the urban history of medieval Constantinople. This translation makes the entire text of the Patria accessible in English for the first time.

The Experience of Power in Medieval Europe, 950-1350
Taking their inspiration from the work of Thomas N. Bisson, to whom the book is dedicated, the contributors to this volume explore the experience of power in medieval Europe: the experience of those who held power, those who helped them wield it, and those who felt its effects. The seventeen essays in the collection, which range geographically from England in the north to Castile in the south, and chronologically from the tenth century to the fourteenth, address a series of specific topics in institutional, social, religious, cultural, and intellectual history. Taken together, they present three distinct ways of discussing power in a medieval historical context: uses of power, relations of power, and discourses of power. The collection thus examines not only the operational and social aspects of power, but also power as a contested category within the medieval world. The Experience of Power suggests new and fruitful ways of understanding and studying power in the Middle Ages, van euro 97.50

Bernard, George W.
The Late Medieval English Church. Vitality and Vulnerability Before the Break with Rome
The later medieval English church is invariably viewed through the lens of the Reformation that transformed it. But in this bold and provocative book historian George Bernard examines it on its own terms, revealing a church with vibrant faith and great energy, but also with weaknesses that reforming bishops worked to overcome.

Bernard emphasizes royal control over the church. He examines the challenges facing bishops and clergy, and assesses the depth of lay knowledge and understanding of the teachings of the church, highlighting the practice of pilgrimage. He reconsiders anti-clerical sentiment and the extent and significance of heresy. He shows that the Reformation was not inevitable: the late medieval church was much too full of vitality. But Bernard also argues that alongside that vitality, and often closely linked to it, were vulnerabilities that made the break with Rome and the dissolution of the monasteries possible. The result is a thought-provoking study of a church and society in transformation.

Bernard, George W.
The Late Medieval English Church. Vitality and Vulnerability Before the Break with Rome
The later medieval English church is invariably viewed through the lens of the Reformation that transformed it. But in this bold and provocative book historian G. W. Bernard examines it on its own terms, revealing a church with vibrant faith and great energy.

Bernard looks at the structure of the church, the nature of royal control over it, the clergy and bishops, the intense devotion and deep-rooted practices of the laity, anti-clerical sentiment, and the prevalence of heresy. He argues that the Reformation was not inevitable, nor made unavoidable by the defectiveness, corruption, superstition or outdatedness of a church ripe for a fall: the late medieval church had both vitality and vulnerabilities, the one often linked to the other. The result is a thought-provoking study of a church and society in transformation.

Bernardus van Clairvaux, Willem van Saint-Thierry
Korte commentaar op het hooglied
Bernardus van Clairvaux en Willem van Saint-Thierry ontmoetten elkaar in het ziekenkwartier van Clairvaux, voor en tijdens de vasten van een moeilijk te bepalen jaar tussen 1127 en 1130. Dankzij een gezamenlijke convalescentie konden zij elkaar dagelijks ontmoeten voor een geestelijk gesprek. Samen hebben zij er vele dagen gelezen en gemediteerd over het Bijbelse Hooglied. Willem weet ons te melden dat hij na elk gesprek een schriftelijk verslag maakte van die dagelijkse dialoog. In dit boek vindt de lezer de Nederlandse vertaling van dit mystiek gesprek.

Bertken Jacobs, Suster
Mi quam een schoon geluit in mijn oren. Het werk van Suster Bertken
Als telg van het belangrijke Utrechtse geslacht Lichtenberg werd Bertken Jacobs (1426/1427-1514) in de hoogste kringen opgevoed. Op dertigjarige leeftijd liet zij zich besluiten in een kluis die zij op eigen kosten had laten bouwen aan de Utrachtse Buurkerk. Via een venster aan de koorzijde nam zij deel aan de godsdienstoefeningen in de kerk, via een venster aan de straatzijde kreeg ze voedsel en kleding en vroegen mensen haar om raad. Geinspireerd door de Moderne Devotie schreef Bertken een lijdensmeditatie, enkele gebeden, een visionair traktaat over de kerstnacht in Bethlehem, een dialoog tussen Jezus en de Ziel en een negental liedjes. Kort na haar dood zijn deze uitgegeven in het Passieboekje en Suster Bertkens boeck.
Het werk van Suster Bertken, dat gerekend wordt tot de literaire canon, wordt in dit boek opnieuw uitgegeven. De Middelnederlandse teksten zijn voorzien van een vertaling in modern Nederlands en een uitgebreide toelichting. In de inleiding wordt een beeld geschetst van leven en denkwereld van deze bijzondere kluizenares.

The Chrodegang Rules. The Rules for the Common Life of the Secular Clergy from the Eighth and Ninth Centuries. Critical Texts with Translations and Commentary
Since its earliest days, the Christian Church sought to draw up rules by which its members could live together in religious communities. Whilst those of Augustine (c.400 AD) and Benedict (c.530 AD) provided detailed guidance for monastic life, it took another two centuries for equivalent rules for secular clergy to become accepted on a wide scale. The earliest surviving set of comprehensive rules for canons are those written in the mid-eighth century by St Chrodegang (c.712-766), Bishop of Metz. Writing initially for secular clergy at Metz Cathedral, this work shows how Chrodegang's rule borrowed much from the Benedictine tradition, dealing with many of the same concerns such as the housing, feeding and disciplining of members of the community and the daily routine of the divine offices. At a time when there was no consensus on how clergy should live - whether they should marry or were eligible to own property - Chrodegang's rule provided clear guidance on such issues, and inspired reformers across Europe to consider how clergy lived and interacted with wider society. Although his work was superseded within a generation by the Rule of Aachen, Chrodegang succeeded in setting the agenda for subsequent rules for canons and as such his rule deserves to be given more weight by Church historians than has hitherto been the case. Providing the Latin texts and English translations of the three surviving versions of Chrodegang's rule, ("Regula Originalis Chrodegangi", "Institutio Canonicorum", "Regula Longior Canonicorum") this volume provides an invaluable resource to scholars of mediaeval Christian communities. Substantial introductions to each text provide historical context and bibliographic details, allowing them to be understood in a much fuller way than has hitherto been possible.

The Philokalia: Exploring the Classic Text of Orthodox Spirituality
The Philokalia (literally "love of the beautiful") is, after the Bible, the most influential source of spiritual tradition within the Orthodox Church. First published in Greek in 1782 by St. Nicodemos of the Holy Mountain and St. Macarios of Corinth, the Philokalia includes works by thirty-six influential Orthodox authors such as Maximus the Confessor, Peter of Madascus, Symeon the New Theologian, and Gregory Palamas. Surprisingly, this important collection of theological and spiritual writings has received little scholarly attention. With the growing interest in Orthodox theology, the need for a substantive resource for Philokalic studies has become increasingly evident. The purpose of the present volume is to remedy that lack by providing an ecumenical collection of scholarly essays on the Philokalia that will introduce readers to its background, motifs, authors, and relevance for contemporary life and thought.

Bingen, Hildegard van
Scivias, Pars I. Ken de wegen, Deel I
Latijn-Nederlands, met commentaar. Vertaald door Mieke Kock-Rademakers.

Scivias is het eerste grote visionaire werk van de H. Hildegard van Bingen. Zij leefde in de 12de eeuw en kreeg van jongsaf visioenen. Naast haar drie grote spirituele visionaire werken, Scivias, Liber Vitae Meritorum en Liber Divinorum Operum, schreef ze ook nog natuurwetenschappelijke werken: Physica en Causae et Curae. Ze is ook befaamd vanwege haar muziek. Op 7.10.2012 is ze te Rome tot kerklerares verheven.

Mieke Kock-Rademakers (1944) is classicus en filosoof. Zij bestudeert de metafysische denktraditie, met name het neoplatonisme, vanaf de klassieke oudheid tot het begin van de Renaissance. Daarbij richt ze zich als filoloog en filosoof op de samenhang van woord, beeld, klank en betekenis in beeldende kunsten, muziek en literatuur.

Crusade and Christendom: Annotated Documents in Translation from Innocent III to the Fall of Acre, 1187-1291
In 1213, Pope Innocent III issued his letter Vineam Domini, thundering against the enemies of Christendom-the "beasts of many kinds that are attempting to destroy the vineyard of the Lord of Sabaoth"-and announcing a General Council of the Latin Church as redress. The Fourth Lateran Council, which convened in 1215, was unprecedented in its scope and impact, and it called for the Fifth Crusade as what its participants hoped would be the final defense of Christendom. For the first time, a collection of extensively annotated and translated documents illustrates the transformation of the crusade movement. Crusade and Christendom explores the way in which the crusade was used to define and extend the intellectual, religious, and political boundaries of Latin Christendom. It also illustrates how the very concept of the crusade was shaped by the urge to define and reform communities of practice and belief within Latin Christendom and by Latin Christendom's relationship with other communities, including dissenting political powers and heretical groups, the Moors in Spain, the Mongols, and eastern Christians. The relationship of the crusade to reform and missionary movements is also explored, as is its impact on individual lives and devotion. The selection of documents and bibliography incorporates and brings to life recent developments in crusade scholarship concerning military logistics and travel in the medieval period, popular and elite participation, the role of women, liturgy and preaching, and the impact of the crusade on western society and its relationship with other cultures and religions. Intended for the undergraduate yet also invaluable for teachers and scholars, this book illustrates how the crusades became crucial for defining and promoting the very concept and boundaries of Latin Christendom. It provides translations of and commentaries on key original sources and up-to-date bibliographic materials.

Birgitta of Sweden, transl. by D. Searby , intr. and annot. by B. Morris
The Revelations of St. Birgitta of Sweden, Vol. 1, Liber Caelestis, Books 1 - 3
St. Birgitta of Sweden (1303-1373, canonized 1391) was one of the most charismatic and influential female visionaries of the later Middle Ages. Altogether, she received some 700 revelations. They deal with a variety of subjects, from meditations on the human condition, domestic affairs in Sweden, and ecclesiastical matters in Rome, to revelations in praise of the Incarnation and devotion to the Virgin. Her Revelations, collected and ordered by her confessors, circulated widely throughout Europe and long after her death. Many eminent individuals, including Cardinal Juan Torqemada and Martin Luther, read and commented on her writings, which influenced the spiritual lives of countless individuals. Birgitta was also the founder of a new contemplative order, which still exists. She is the patron saint of Sweden, and in 2000 was declared (with Catherine of Siena and Edith Stein) the first co-patroness of Europe. This new translation in four volumes, supported by the Tercentenary Foundation of the Swedish National Bank, is based on the newly available, definitive Latin edition. It will be the first translation of the complete work into English.

The Revelations of St. Birgitta of Sweden. Vol. 2 Liber Caelestis Books 4 - 5
St. Brigitta of Sweden (1303-73, canonized 1391) was one of the most charismatic and influential visionaries of the later Middle Ages. Altogether, she received some 700 revelations dealing with a variety of subjects, from meditations on the human condition, domestic affairs in Sweden, and ecclesiastical matters in Rome, to revelations in praise of the Incarnation and devotion to the Virgin. Her Revelationes, collected and ordered by her confessors, circulated widely throughout Europe both during her lifetime and long after her death. Many eminent individuals, including Cardinal Juan Torqemada and Martin Luther, read and commented on her writings, which influenced the spiritual lives of countless individuals. Birgitta was also the founder of a new contemplative order, which still exists. She is the patron saint of Sweden, and in 2000 was declared (with Catherine of Siena and Edith Stein) the first co-patroness of Europe.

This is the second of four volumes and it contains Book IV and Book V. Book IV includes some of Birgitta's most influential visions, with topics ranging from the Avignon papacy and purgatory, to the Hundred Years War. Book V, the Liber Quaestionum (Book of Questions), takes the form of a learned dialogue between Christ and a monk standing on a ladder fixed between heaven and earth. The argument centers on the way in which God's providence is constantly misunderstood and rejected by self-centered human beings. The translation is based on the recently completed critical edition of the Latin text.

Studies in Renaissance Humanism and Politics
The fifteen articles republished here exemplify the many directions Robert Black's research in Renaissance studies has taken. The first five studies look at Renaissance humanism, in particular at its origins, and the concept of the Renaissance as well as the theory and practice of historical writing. Black also updates his monograph on the Florentine chancellor, Benedetto Accolti. Machiavelli is the subject of three articles, focusing on his education and career in the Florentine chancery. Next come Black's seminal studies of Arezzo under Florentine rule, revealing the triangular relationship between centre, periphery and the Medici family. Finally, two articles on political thought examine the relative merits of monarchical and republican government for political thinkers on both sides of the Alps.

Metropolen aan de Noordzee. De geschiedenis van Nederland, 1100-1560
Vanaf 1100 trad in diverse Nederlandse gewesten een opzienbarende groei op. Het is een intrigerende vraag waardoor aanvankelijk Vlaanderen, dan Brabant, en in derde instantie Holland en Zeeland deze voorsprongpositie konden verwerven. Hoe verhield de economische dynamiek zich tot de politieke verdeeldheid en de naar verhouding beperkte macht van de vorsten? Kon misschien juist hierdoor een politiek systeem ontstaan waarin burgers meer zeggenschap uitoefenden dan elders in Europa? Waren dit ook de omstandigheden die de uitzonderlijke creativiteit uitlokten in de landbouwtechnieken, de textielambachten, de scheepsbouw, evenzeer als in de schilderkunst en de muziek?

Als de ligging langs grote rivieren en aan kusten aan deze bijzondere dynamiek heeft bijgedragen, blijft de vraag waarom die factoren alleen in bepaalde perioden en plaatsen cruciaal bleken. Waardoor kon Antwerpen de centrale rol overnemen van Brugge en dubbel zo groot worden? Het was in zijn kielzog dat ook Amsterdam aan zijn fenomenale groei begon.

Metropolen aan de Noordzee vertelt het boeiende verhaal van de periode waarin de Nederlanden hun centrale plaats in Noordwest-Europa verwierven die zij steeds hebben behouden.

Genealogy of the Pagan Gods. Volume 1 : Books I - V
Giovanni Boccaccio's Genealogy of the Pagan Gods is an ambitious work of humanistic scholarship whose goal is to plunder ancient and medieval literary sources so as to create a massive synthesis of Greek and Roman mythology. The work also contains a famous defense of the value of studying ancient pagan poetry in a Christian world. The complete work in fifteen books contains a meticulously organized genealogical tree identifying approximately 950 Greco-Roman mythological figures. The scope is enormous: 723 chapters include over a thousand citations from two hundred Greek, Roman, medieval, and Trecento authors. Throughout the Genealogy, Boccaccio deploys an array of allegorical, historical, and philological critiques of the ancient myths and their iconography. Much more than a mere compilation of pagan myths, the Genealogy incorporates hundreds of excerpts from and comments on ancient poetry, illustrative of the new spirit of philological and cultural inquiry emerging in the early Renaissance. It is at once the most ambitious work of literary scholarship of the early Renaissance and a demonstration to contemporaries of the moral and cultural value of studying ancient poetry. This is the first volume of a projected three-volume set of Boccaccio's complete Genealogy.

Adrian IV The English Pope (1154-1159). Studies and Texts
The year 2000 witnessed the 900th anniversary of the birth of Adrian IV, the only Englishman to sit on the papal throne. His short pontificate of four and a half years, distracted by crisis and controversy and followed as it was by an 18-year schism, could be judged a low point in the history of the papacy. The studies in this book challenge the view that Adrian was little more than a cipher, the tool of powerful factions in the Curia. Relations with the Empire, the Norman kingdom and the Patrimony are all radically reassessed and the authenticity of "Laudabiliter" reconsidered. At the same time, the spiritual, educational and devotional contexts in which he was operating are fully assessed; his legatine mission to Scandinavia re-examined in the light of Old Norse sources, and his special relationship with St Albans is explored through his privileges to this great abbey. These studies by leading scholars in the field, together with the introductory chapter by Christopher Brooke, reveal an active and engaged pope, reacting creatively to the challenges and crises of the Church and the world. The work is supported by a substantial appendix of relevant sources and documents in translation

Bonaventura
Breviloquium. De theologie in kort bestek. Band 1 Het scheppend beginsel
Wie in de 13e eeuw theologie ging studeren, begaf zich in een onoverzienbaar woud van geschriften. Daar was allereerst de Heilige Schrift zelf, bestaande uit 72 delen; verder waren er de uitleggingen daarvan in de werken van de heiligen (de Kerkvaders, speciaal Augustinus) en de geleerden (de latere theologen, speciaal Hugo van St. Victor).Op verzoek van zijn medebroeders theologanten schrijft de franciscaanse theoloog Bonaventura (1217-1274) een gids in dat grote woud, een theologie in kort bestek, die hij Breviloquium noemt.

Het werk bestaat uit zeven delen, voorafgegaan door een proloog. Hij spreekt daarin over God, die het beginsel der dingen is, en verder over schepping, val, verlossing, herstel door genade, genezing door de sacramenten en over de vergelding in het oordeel. De opzet van het werk is heel bijzonder. Bonaventura redeneert in ieder hoofdstuk vanuit God, hetzij als het eerste beginsel, hetzij als het herstellende beginsel (het Vleesgeworden Woord). Zo plaatst hij de wereld en de mens in het licht van de drie-ene God. Steeds opnieuw laat hij zien, hoe de kracht van de Vader, de wijsheid van de Zoon en de Goedheid van de Heilige Geest werkzaam zijn in de wereld van de mens.

In deze Band vindt men, na de inleiding, de Latijnse tekst met vertaling en toelichting van de proloog en de delen I-III

De opzet van het werk is heel bijzonder. Bonaventura redeneert in ieder hoofdstuk vanuit God, hetzij als het eerste beginsel, hetzij als het herstellende beginsel (het Vleesgeworden Woord). Zo plaatst hij de wereld en de mens in het licht van de drie-ene God. Steeds opnieuw laat hij zien, hoe de kracht van de Vader, de wijsheid van de Zoon en de Goedheid van de Heilige Geest werkzaam zijn in de wereld van de mens.

In deze Band vindt men, na de inleiding, de Latijnse tekst met vertaling en toelichting van de proloog en de delen IV-VII

Bonaventura
Volmaakt leven. Over verlangen, volharding en vervulling
Hoe kunnen wij ons leven als christen invullen en tot vervulling laten komen? Deze vraag van Isabella van Longchamp zette Bonaventura, minister generaal van de orde van de minderbroeders en een van de grote theologen van de dertiende eeuw, aan tot het schrijven van dit kleine boekje Volmaakt leven.

Het woord 'volmaakt' behoort tot het taalveld van het geloof en wijst op de eindbestemming of terugkeer van de mens in God. 'Tot volmaaktheid komen', 'naar volmaaktheid streven' en 'volmaakt worden' zijn dan ook klassieke manieren van spreken over de opgang van de mens naar God. Geen andere middeleeuwse auteur schetst deze weg van terugkeer zo duidelijk als Bonaventura. Hij gaat daarbij vooral in op de geestelijke gesteldheid die iemand moet hebben om de weg tot de volmaaktheid te gaan. De vrouwen die, op uitnodiging van Isabella en geinspireerd door Franciscus en Clara van Assisi, ervoor kozen in het klooster in te treden omwille van een leven in armoede, kuisheid en gehoorzaamheid, kunnen groeien in de ontvankelijkheid voor Gods liefde door deugdzame mensen te worden. Tegelijkertijd blijkt dat het gaan van de weg van de volmaaktheid niet een voorrecht van religieuzen of kloosterlingen is. Bonaventura ziet dit als een opdracht aan iedere christen die op zijn of haar manier deze weg wil gaan.

Volmaakt leven biedt een handreiking aan iedereen die in verlangen naar volmaaktheid wil groeien en volharden.

Bourdua, L., A. Dunlop
Art and the Augustinian Order in Early Renaissance Italy
The rise of the mendicant orders in the later Middle Ages coincided with rapid and dramatic shifts in the visual arts. The mendicants were prolific patrons, relying on artworks to instruct and impress their diverse lay congregations. Churches and chapels were built, and new images and iconographies developed to propagate mendicant cults. But how should the two phenomena be related? How much were these orders actively responsible for artistic change, and how much did they simply benefit from it? To explore these questions, "Art and the Augustinian Order in Early Renaissance Italy" looks at art in the formative period of the Augustinian Hermits, an order with a particularly difficult relation to art. As a first detailed study of visual culture in the Augustinian order, this book will be a basic resource, making available previously inaccessible material, discussing both well-known and more neglected artworks, and engaging with fundamental methodological questions for pre-modern art and church history, from the creation of religious iconographies to the role of gender in art

Satan the Heretic. The Birth of Demonology in the Medieval West
Before the end of the thirteenth century, theologians had little interest in demons, but with Thomas Aquinas and his formidable 'Treatise on Evil' in 1272, everything changed. In Satan the Heretic, Alain Boureau trains his skeptical eye not on Satan or Satanism, but on the birth of demonology and the sudden belief in the power of demons who inhabited Satan's Court, setting out to understand not why people believed in demons, but why theologians - especially Pope John XXII - became so interested in the subject.

Depicting this new demonology, Satan the Heretic considers the period between the mid-thirteenth and mid-fourteenth centuries when demons, in the eyes of Church authorities, suddenly burst forth, more real and more terrifying than ever before in the history of Christianity. Boureau argues that the rise in this obsession with demons occurs at the crossroads of the rise of sovereignties and of the individual, a rise that, tellingly, also coincides with the emergence of the modern legal system in the European West.

The practice of the Bible in the Middle Ages.
In this volume, specialists in literature, theology, liturgy, manuscript studies, and history introduce the medieval culture of the Bible in Western Christianity. Emphasizing the living quality of the text and the unique literary traditions that arose from it, they show the many ways in which the Bible was read, performed, recorded, and interpreted by various groups in medieval Europe. An initial orientation introduces the origins, components, and organization of medieval Bibles. Subsequent chapters address the use of the Bible in teaching and preaching, the production and purpose of Biblical manuscripts in religious life, early vernacular versions of the Bible, its influence on medieval historical accounts, the relationship between the Bible and monasticism, and instances of privileged and practical use, as well as the various forms the text took in different parts of Europe. The dedicated merging of disciplines, both within each chapter and overall in the book, enable readers to encounter the Bible in much the same way as it was once experienced: on multiple levels and registers, through different lenses and screens, and always personally and intimately.

Meister Eckhart. Mysticus van het niet-wetende weten
Dit boek gaat over mystiek, maar het gaat evengoed over het dagelijkse leven, over de dingen die je daarin tegenkomt, over verlangens en dromen, over openheid en onbevangen luisteren naar elkaar, en over luisteren en wachten om iets van de oergrond te ondervinden waarop alles is gefundeerd. De houding van 'niet-wetend weten' is daarbij zo fundamenteel dat ze aan alles raakt: aan de alledaagse en voor de hand liggende omgang met elkaar, maar ook aan fundamentele vragen van de wijsbegeerte en theologie of aan de basishouding van de psychotherapie.

Meister Eckhart (1260-1328) is hierbij een veilige gids. Hij was een dominicaan en is een van de grondleggers van de dominicaanse spiritualiteit. Eckhart was een man die zowel de kerkvader Augustinus als de joodse wijsgeer Maimonides las en uit het hoofd citeerde. Hij liet zich zowel inspireren door de Griek Aristoteles als de Arabier Averroes, door de rationeel denkende theoloog Thomas van Aquino en de intuitieve mystica Margareta Porete. Zijn teksten nodigen uit tot een interreligieuze dialoog. Daarbij was hij een van de eersten die in de volkstaal preekten en schreven, en die zich losmaakten van een al te klerikale denkwereld.

Stedelijk verleden in veelvoud. Opstellen m over laatmiddeleeuwse stadsgeschiedenis in de Nederlanden
De laatmiddeleeuwse stad onderscheidde zich door eigen politieke-, sociaal-culturele en economische structuren die een enorme variatie van levens- en organisatievormen toelieten. De stadsmuren bakenden een organiek geheel af dat door de gehele stedelijke gemeenschap werd gedragen, maar dus telkens anders werd ingevuld. Daardoor trekken steeds weer nieuwe aspecten van de laatmiddeleeuwse stad de aandacht van historici. De bundel Stedelijk verleden in veelvoud is een product van deze fascinatie. In zestien bijdragen worden de centrale functies van steden en de wijze waarop de inwoners de stedelijke samenleving beleefden, nader belicht. Terugkerende thema's zijn urbanisering, de relaties met de rurale omgeving en met de Hanze, economie, financien en kredietwezen, verschriftelijking en stedelijke identiteit, militaire organisatie en religieuze beleving.

Brann, R.
Power in the Portrayal: Representations of Jews and Muslims in Eleventh- and Twelfth-Century Islamic Spain
"Power in the Portrayal" unveils a fresh and vital perspective on power relations in eleventh- and twelfth-century Muslim Spain as reflected in historical and literary texts of the period. Employing the methods of the new historical literary study in looking at a range of texts, Ross Brann reveals the paradoxical relations between the Andalusi Muslim and Jewish elites in an era when long periods of tolerance and respect were punctuated by outbreaks of tension and hostility.

The examined Arabic texts reveal a fragmented perception of the Jew in eleventh-century al-Andalus. They depict seemingly contradictory figures at whose poles are an intelligent, skilled, and noble Jew deserving of homage and a vile, stupid, and fiendish enemy of God and Islam. For their part, the Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic texts display a deep-seated reluctance to portray Muslims in any light at all. Brann cogently demonstrates that these representations of Jews and Muslims - each of which is concerned with issues of sovereignty and the exercise of power - reflect the shifting, fluctuating, and ambivalent relations between elite members of two of the ethno-religious communities of al-Andalus.

Brann's accessible prose is enriched by his splendid translations; the original texts are also included. This book is the first to study the construction of social meaning in Andalusi Arabic, Judeo-Arabic, and Hebrew literary texts and historical chronicles. The novel approach illuminates nuances of respect, disinterest, contempt, and hatred reflected in the relationship between Muslims and Jews in medieval Spain.

Brants , Sebastian
Het Narrenschip
Uitgave in twee banden: de Nederlandse vertaling door dr E. Vandervoort en een fotografische herdruk van de eerste druk uit 1494.

In Sebastian Brants moraalsatire Het Narrenschip vond Erasmus inspiratie voor zijn Lof der zotheid. Ze kenden elkaar persoonlijk en brieven van Erasmus laten een groot ontzag voor zijn tijdgenoot zien. Brant is te typeren als een humanistisch georienteerde laat-middeleeuwer, met een gematigd conservatisme en gehechtheid aan gevestigde orde en traditioneel gedachtegoed. We moeten Das Narrenschiff daarom vooral zien als het denkwerk van een intellectueel die zijn volkse lezer aanmaant terug te keren tot de oude orde.

Erasmus zal vijftien jaar later ook oproepen tot trouw aan geloof, maatschappelijke orde en de rede. Beide schrijvers doen dit niet door principes, gewoonten en instellingen als zodanig te hekelen, maar wel hen die 'er een potje van maken'. Al is bij Brant de humanistische ondertoon overduidelijk, hij staat daarmee nog niet op het volwaardig humanistische standpunt van Erasmus. Brant illustreert zijn opvattingen met vele citaten uit, en verwijzingen naar Bijbel, mythologie en antiek-klassieke literatuur, die tot dan het westerse denken en weten bepaalden. Brant verwerkt zijn kennis en principes tot een moralistisch betoog, doordrongen van een satirische (zelf-)spot. Voor die tijd is de populariserende inslag opvallend: zijn bloemlezing van het algemeen menselijke verschijnsel van de dwaasheid is niet in het Latijn maar in het Hochdeutsch.

De Nederlandse vertaling bevat berijmde vertaling, een inleiding op het leven en werk van Sebastian Brant waarin onder meer de invloed op Erasmus aan de orde komt, toelichtingen en een bespreking van de gravures van Durer.

Brooke, R.B.
The Image of St Francis. Responses to Sainthood in the Thriteenth Century
An important new study of the way in which St Francis's image was recorded in literature, documents, architecture and art. St Francis was a man whose personality was deliberately stamped on his Order and Rosalind Brooke explores how the stories told by Francis's companions were at once brilliantly vivid portrayals of the man as well as guides to how the Franciscan way of life ought to be led. She also examines how after St Francis's death a great monument was erected to him in the Basilica at Assisi and how this came to reflect in stone and stained glass and fresco the manner in which some Popes and leading friars believed his memory should be fostered. Highly illustrated throughout, including colour and black and white plates, this book will be essential reading for medievalists and art historians as well as anyone interested in St Francis and the Franciscan movement.

The Cambridge Companion to Abelard (Abelardus)
Peter Abelard (1079-1142) is one of the greatest philosophers of the medieval period. Although best known for his views about universals and his dramatic love affair with Heloise, he made a number of important contributions in metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, mind and cognition, philosophical theology, ethics, and literature. The essays in this 2004 volume survey the entire range of Abelard's thought, and examine his overall achievement in its intellectual and historical context. They also trace Abelard's influence on later thought and his relevance to philosophical debates today.

Brown, Peter
The Cult of the Saints. Its Rise and Function in Latin Christianity
Following the fall of the Roman Empire in the West, the cult of the saints was the dominant form of religion in Christian Europe. In this elegantly written work, Peter Brown explores the role of tombs, shrines, relics, and pilgrimages connected with the sacred bodies of the saints. He shows how men and women living in harsh and sometimes barbaric times relied upon the merciful intercession of the holy dead to obtain justice, forgiveness, and to find new ways to accept their fellows. Challenging the common treatment of the cult as an outbreak of superstition among the lower classes, Brown demonstrates how this form of religiousity engaged the finest minds of the Church and elicited from members of the educated upper classes some of their most splendid achievements in poetry, literature, and the patronage of the arts.

Visions and Meaning in Ninth-Century Byzantium. Images as Exegesis in the Homilies of Gregory (Gregorius) of Nazianzus
The Byzantines used imagery to communicate a wide range of issues. In the context of Iconoclasm - the debate about the legitimacy of religious art conducted between c. AD 730 and 843 - Byzantine authors themselves claimed that visual images could express certain ideas better than words. Vision and Meaning in Ninth-Century Byzantium deals with how such visual communication worked and examines the types of messages that pictures could convey in the aftermath of Iconoclasm. Its focus is on a deluxe manuscript commissioned around 880, a copy of the fourth-century sermons of the Cappadocian church father Gregory of Nazianzus which presented to the Emperor Basil I, founder of the Macedonian dynasty, by one of the greatest scholars Byzantium ever produced, the patriarch Photios. The manuscript was lavishly decorated with gilded initials, elaborate headpieces and a full-page miniature before each of Gregory's sermons. Forty-six of these, including over 200 distinct scenes, survive. Fewer than half however were directly inspired by the homily that they accompany. Instead most function as commentaries on the ninth-century court and carefully deconstructed both provide us with information not available from preserved written sources and perhaps more important show us how visual images communicate differently from words.

The Cult of the Mother of God in Byzantium. Texts and Images
This volume, on the cult of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary) in Byzantium, focuses on textual and historical aspects of the subject, thus complementing previous work which has centred more on the cult of images of the Mother of God. The papers presented here, by an international team of scholars, consider the development and transformation of the cult from approximately the fourth through the twelfth centuries.

The volume opens with discussion of the origins of the cult, and its Near Eastern manifestations, including the archaeological site of the Kathisma church in Palestine, which represents the earliest Marian shrine in the Holy Land, and Syriac poetic treatment of the Virgin. The principal focus, however, is on the 8th and 9th centuries in Byzantium, as a critical period when Christian attitudes toward the Virgin and her veneration were transformed. The book re-examines the relationship between icons, relics and the Virgin, asking whether increasing devotion to these holy objects or figures was related in any way. Some contributions consider the location of relics and later, icons, in Constantinople and other centres of Marian devotion; others explore gender issues, such as the significance of the Virgin's feminine qualities, and whether women and men identified with her equally as a holy figure.

The aim of this volume is to build on recent work on the cult of the Virgin Mary in Byzantium and to explore areas that have not yet been studied. The rationale is critical and historical, using literary, artistic, and archaeological sources to evaluate her role in the development of the Byzantine understanding of the ways in which God interacts with creation by means of icons, relics, and the Theotokos.

Bryan, J.
Looking Inward: Devotional Reading and the Private Self in Late Medieval England
"You must see yourself." The exhortation was increasingly familiar to English men and women in the two centuries before the Reformation. They encountered it repeatedly in their devotional books, the popular guides to spiritual self-improvement that were reaching an ever-growing readership at the end of the Middle Ages. But what did it mean to see oneself? What was the nature of the self to be envisioned, and what eyes and mirrors were needed to see and know it properly? Looking Inward traces a complex network of answers to such questions, exploring how English readers between 1350 and 1550 learned to envision, examine, and change themselves in the mirrors of devotional literature.

Bryan examines a wide range of devotional and secular texts, from works by Walter Hilton, Julian of Norwich, and Thomas Hoccleve to neglected translations like The Chastising of God's Children and The Pricking of Love. She explores the models of identification and imitation through which they sought to reach the inmost selves of their readers, and the scripts for spiritual desire that they offered for the cultivation of the heart. Illuminating the psychological paradigms at the heart of the genre, Bryan provides fresh insights into how late medieval men and women sought to know, labor in, and profit themselves by means of books.

Bynum, C. W.
Christian Materiality. An Essay on Religion in Late Medieval Europe
In the period between 1150 and 1550, an increasing number of Christians in western Europe made pilgrimage to places where material objects--among them paintings, statues, relics, pieces of wood, earth, stones, and Eucharistic wafers--allegedly erupted into life by such activities as bleeding, weeping, and walking about. Challenging Christians both to seek ever more frequent encounter with miraculous matter and to turn to an inward piety that rejected material objects of devotion, such phenomena were by the fifteenth century at the heart of religious practice and polemic. In Christian Materiality, Caroline Walker Bynum describes the miracles themselves, discusses the problems they presented for both church authorities and the ordinary faithful, and probes the basic scientific and religious assumptions about matter that lay behind them. She also analyzes the proliferation of religious art in the later Middle Ages and argues that it called attention to its materiality in sophisticated ways that explain both the animation of images and the hostility to them on the part of iconoclasts. Seeing the Christian culture of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries as a paradoxical affirmation of the glory and the threat of the natural world, Bynum's study suggests a new understanding of the background to the sixteenth-century reformations, both Protestant and Catholic. Moving beyond cultural study of "the body"--a field she helped to establish--Bynum argues that Western attitudes toward body and person must be placed in the context of changing conceptions of matter itself. Her study has broad theoretical implications, suggesting a new approach to the study of material culture and religious practice.

Bynum, C.W.
Metamorphosis and Identity
The four studies in this book center on the Western obsession with the nature of personal identity. Focusing on the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, but with an eye toward antiquity and the present, Caroline Walker Bynum explores the themes of metamorphosis and hybridity in genres ranging from poetry, folktales, and miracle collections to scholastic theology, devotional treatises, and works of natural philosophy. She argues that the obsession with boundary-crossing and otherness was an effort to delineate nature's regularities and to establish a strong sense of personal identity, extending even beyond the grave. She examines historical figures such as Marie de France, Gerald of Wales, Bernard Clairvaux, Thomas Aquinas, and Dante, as well as modern fabulists such as Angela Carter, as examples of solutions to the perennial question of how the individual can both change and remain constant. Addressing the fundamental question for historians-that of change-Bynum also explores the nature of history writing itself.

Forced Baptisms: Histories of Jews, Christians, and Converts in Papal Rome
This book makes use of newly available archival sources to reexamine the Roman Catholic Church's policy, from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries, of coercing the Jews of Rome into converting to Christianity. Marina Caffiero, one of the first historians permitted access to important archives, sets individual stories of denunciation, betrayal, pleading, and conflict into historical context to highlight the Church's actions and the Jewish response. Caffiero documents the regularity with which Jews were abducted from the Roman ghetto and pressured to accept baptism. She analyzes why some Jewish men, interested in gaining a business advantage, were more inclined to accept conversion than the women. This book exposes the complexity of relations between the papacy and the Jews, revealing the Church not as a monolithic entity, but as a network of competing institutions, and affirming the Roman Jews as active agents of resistance.

Cameron, E.
Waldenses. Rejections of Holy Church in Medieval Europe
This book provides the first full single-volume scholarly account in English of the "Waldenses" and examination of the concept of 'Waldensianism' from the late 12th century to the Reformation. 'Waldenses' is the name given to diverse and widely-scattered groups of religious dissenters since the time of the movement's reputed founder, a rich citizen of Lyon called Valdesius, in the late twelfth century. Though living within the culture of the Catholic Church, these people doubted the holiness of its priesthood and questioned its teachings about the destiny of souls after death. The various strands of this movement emerged and endured over a long period of time. In consequence some earlier historians assumed, rather than demonstrated, that 'Waldensian' heresy remained one coherent phenomenon throughout its life-span.They also tended to neglect some of the transient or 'untypical' aspects of the movement.

This new book draws on primary sources to consider each of the manifestations of the movement in turn. It examines connections in space and time through correspondence and tradition between the different groups of Waldenses. It also asks what were the common threads in certain characteristics of religious practice, linking in differing degrees all the forms that the movement took.

Cameron, Euan
Enchanted Europe. Superstition, Reason, and Religion, 1250-1750
Since the dawn of history people have used charms and spells to try to control their environment, and forms of divination to try to foresee the otherwise unpredictable chances of life. Many of these techniques were called 'superstitious' by educated elites. For centuries religious believers used 'superstition' as a term of abuse to denounce another religion that they thought inferior, or to criticize their fellow-believers for practising their faith 'wrongly'.

From the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment, scholars argued over what 'superstition' was, how to identify it, and how to persuade people to avoid it. Learned believers in demons and witchcraft, in their treatises and sermons, tried to make 'rational' sense of popular superstitions by blaming them on the deceptive tricks of seductive demons. Every major movement in Christian thought, from rival schools of medieval theology through to the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the Enlightenment, added new twists to the debates over superstition. Protestants saw Catholics as superstitious, and vice versa. Enlightened philosophers mocked traditional cults as superstitions. Eventually, the learned lost their worry about popular belief, and turned instead to chronicling and preserving 'superstitious' customs as folklore and ethnic heritage.

Enchanted Europe is the first comprehensive, integrated account of western Europe's long, complex dialogue with its own folklore and popular beliefs. Drawing on many little-known and rarely used texts, Euan Cameron constructs a compelling narrative of the rise, diversification, and decline of popular 'superstition' in the European mind.

The Book of Bahir
Flavius Mithridates Latin Translation, the Hebrew Text, and an english translation

This booklet full of parables has served for centuries as a concise mystical encyclopedia of kabbalistic lore and has attained the status of an important source of religious inspiration. The Bahir is a collection of apologues, often sibylline, which stage oriental kings together with even-tempered princesses, stupid soldiers and smart administrators, passionate lovers and adorned brides. Short theoretical passages link the tales, and explain the invisible worlds by means of a celestial topography or with unusual metaphors, like the one of a huge tree able to touch the limits of the divine thought. Also the order of the sefirot are described with rich allegories, as, for instance, the succession of the letters of the alphabet, the relationships among the members of a family or even as forms of sexual attraction. Notwithstanding the presence of a few more ancient elements, it looks as if that one or more kabbalists edited the Bahir, as we know it, between the end of the 12th and the beginning of the 13th century.

The Book of Bahir was explicitly mentioned by Count della Mirandola in his Conclusiones published in 1486 and represents a crucial source for understanding Pico’s thinking. In fact, there is a surprising similarity of themes and images between the symbolical world of the Bahir and the harmonizing philosophy of Pico.

Capellanus, Andreas
Liefde of De retorica van de verleiding
Aan het einde van de twaalfde eeuw stelde Andreas Capellanus op verzoek van zijn jeugdige vriend, het handboek op van de liefde: De amore. Liefde beschreven als drama van verlangen en vervulling, van tomeloze hartstocht en mateloze toewijding, van overgave aan ziedende lust en spirituele liefde. Het is een klassieke ars amatoria, een liefdesleer van erotische omgangsvormen, een retorica van hoofse minne.

Tegelijk is De amore een leerdicht, dat waarschuwt voor het ontwrichtende en verderfelijke van het zinnelijke verlangen, de onbereikbaarheid van de geliefde: niets anders stelt het levensgeluk zo zeer in de waagschaal als liefde. Want ware liefde negeert en doorbreekt maatschappelijke conventies, en verstoort de onromantische orde.

Liefde is een ongrijpbaar boek. Ironisch, hoffelijk en hoofs, belerend en waarschuwend, een loflied op de liefde, oprecht, poetisch en beschouwend, een theoretisch fundament onder de hoofse romantische lyriek. Piet Gerbrandy is de juiste vertaler van deze opleiding tot minnaar.

Catana, L.
The Concept of Contraction in Giordano Brunos Philosophy
This publication is the first book-length study dedicated to concept of contraction in Bruno's philosophy. Moreover, it explores his sources for this concept. Traditionally Ficino's translation of Plotinus, dating from the second half of the fifteenth century, has been seen as a key source to the Neoplatonism informing Bruno's philosophy. In "The Concept of Contraction in Giordano Bruno's Philosophy", another Neoplatonic source is considered, namely the pseudo-Aristotelian Liber de Causis (Book of causes), which has not yet been examined in the context of Renaissance Neoplatonism. This work, probably written in Arabic in the ninth century, was translated into Latin in the twelfth century and remained well known to many late Medieval and Renaissance philosophers. Catana argues that this work may have prepared for Ficino's translation of Plotinus, and that in some instances it provided a common source to Renaissance philosophers, Bruno and Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) being conspicuous examples discussed in this book. The role of the Liber de Causis in the thought of Bruno and other Renaissance philosophers leads us to reevaluate our interpretation of the relationship between late Medieval and Renaissance Neoplatonism

Cates, D. F.
Aquinas on the Emotions. A Religious-Ethical Inquiry
All of us want to be happy and live well. Sometimes intense emotions affect our happiness--and, in turn, our moral lives. Our emotions can have a significant impact on our perceptions of reality, the choices we make, and the ways in which we interact with others. Can we, as moral agents, have an effect on our emotions? Do we have any choice when it comes to our emotions? In "Aquinas on the Emotions", Diana Fritz Cates shows how emotions are composed as embodied mental states. She identifies various factors, including religious beliefs, intuitions, images, and questions that can affect the formation and the course of a person's emotions. She attends to the appetitive as well as the cognitive dimension of emotion, both of which Aquinas interprets with flexibility. The result is a powerful study of Aquinas that is also a resource for readers who want to understand and cultivate the emotional dimension of their lives.

He delves into the writings of Francis and Clare and illustrates how both used observations of their various human relationships to understand their experiences with God. Accompanying this study are an exhaustive bibliography and several appendices that enhance this unique treatment of these two beloved and admired religious figures.

Chesterton, G.K.
Saint Francis of Assisi
Chesterton's Saint Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) is the popular biography of a beloved Christian saint and founder of the Franciscans, told by an equally beloved author and storyteller. It is an accessible, interesting and compelling story of a man known more by legend than fact. In this brilliant reflection on the poor friar of Assisi, G. K. Chesterton unfolds the life and times of St. Francis, from his conversion as a young man to his receiving of the stigmata at the end of his life. While many modern biographers stumble in their effort to grasp the essence of the saint, Chesterton shows that Francis' entire life--his prayer, his poverty, his asceticism, his love of creation, and all his eccentricities--flowed from his profound love for Christ and all men. In Chesterton's colorful prose, St. Francis shines with the splendor of sanctity and calls each of us to the same intense and animating love for God and His people.

Clairvaux, Bernardus van
Apologie, Cistercienzer visie op benedictijns leven
De Apologie aan Willem van Saint-Thierry is het eerste grote publiekswerk van Bernardus. Zijn voorgaande traktaten zijn nog zuiver monastieke geschriften bestemd voor de 'inner circle', de communiteit van Clairvaux en haar eerste dochterhuizen. Met dit geschrift breekt Bernardus de grenzen van het klooster open om zich te richten tot een ruimer lezerspubliek. Hierdoor wordt hij de eerste publicerende cistercienzer uit de geschiedenis. Meteen een voltreffer: de strijdlustige auteur gooit een steen in de vijver van het twaalfde-eeuwse monnikendom. Het effect blijft niet uit, want het water zal de hele eeuw door in beroering blijven. Een onverwacht neveneffect is dat de naam van de abt van Clairvaux meteen op de kaart staat en zijn reputatie gevestigd is. In dit retorisch meesterwerk gaat Bernardus' diepste bekommernis uit naar monniken die hij wil vormen, naar mensen die hij wil zien groeien in aandacht en liefde, naar gemeenschappen die hij wil samenhouden in een band van vrede en eenheid. Daarbij pleit Bernardus voor zowel eenheid als pluralisme, met hetzelfde literaire genie dat hem in staat stelt satire, humor en sarcasme meesterlijk in elkaar te weven.

Clairvaux, Bernardus van
Voorschrift, de regel van Benedictus en zijn toepassing
Het traktaat dat de geschiedenis is ingegaan onder de titel Liber de praecepto et dispensatione dankt zijn bestaan aan een dringende vraag van enkele benedictijner monniken aan het adres van de abt van Clairvaux. Het centrale thema is de toepassing van de Regel van Benedictus. Een wetgeving vraagt immers om jurisprudentie, en dat geldt evenzeer voor een monastieke codex als de Regel. Toch schrijft Bernardus niet alleen een juridische verhandeling waarin met subtiliteit de wet wordt geinterpreteerd en waarin op heldere manier belicht wordt hoe macht en gezag zich verhouden. Hij levert evenzeer een theologisch en spiritueel werk af, een handleiding voor geestelijke begeleiding, waarin zelfs de aanzetten van een mystiek leven niet ontbreken.

Hoewel Bernardus het de lezer niet altijd gemakkelijk maakt, schrijft hij een meesterwerk van monastiek onderscheidingsvermogen dat een belangrijke bijdrage levert aan een vernieuwd inzicht in de gehoorzaamheid, de conversatio morum en de stabiliteit: de drie geloften die de monnik bij de professie 'volgens de Regel van Benedictus' aflegt.

Vertaald door Vincent Hunink, universitair docent Latijn en Oudchristelijk Latijn aan de Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen. Hunink ontving op 9 december 2011 voor zijn 'literaire non-fictie' vertalingen uit het Latijn een van de drie vertaalprijzen van het Nederlands Letterenfonds.

Clairvaux, B. van
Ommekeer, de omvormende kracht van Gods woord
Het geschrift dat in dit boek voor het eerst in het Nederlands wordt uitgegeven onder de naam 'Ommekeer' is een ervaringsdocument. Het is geschreven door een monnik die leefde vanuit Gods woord dat dagelijks via koorgebed en lectio divina bij hem binnen kwam. Bernardus toont aan dat het uitwendig waargenomen woord van de Schrift aansluiting zoekt bij onze inwendigheid. Tussen beide is er immers een affiniteit. Voor de mens die terugkeert naar zijn hart, bewerkt dat woord een radicale omvorming. De mens die er zich door laat bewegen wordt een arme van geest, een vredestichter voor zijn omgeving. De zaligsprekingen uit het evangelie worden gaandeweg op hem van toepassing. Zo omgevormd worden is een weg naar geluk en zaligheid.

Chaucer and Italian Textuality
When Chaucer came into contact with Italian literary culture in the second half of the fourteenth century he was engaging with a productive, lively and highly varied tradition. Chaucer and Italian Textuality provides a new perspective on Chaucer and Italy by highlighting the materiality of his sources, reconstructing his textual, codicological horizon of expectation. It provides new ways of thinking about Chaucer's access to, and use of, these Italian sources, stimulating, in turn, new ways of reading his work. Manuscripts of the major works of Dante, Boccaccio, and Petrarch circulated in a variety of formats, and often the margins of their texts were loci for extensive commentary and glossing. These traditions of glossing and commentary represent one of the most striking features of fourteenth-century Italian literary culture. These authors were in turn deeply indebted to figures like Ovid and Statius, who were themselves heavily glossed and commented upon. The margins provided a space for a wide variety of responses to be inscribed on the page. This is eloquently demonstrated in the example of Francesco d'Amaretto Mannelli's glosses in Decameron, copied by him in 1384. This material dimension of Chaucer's sources has not received sufficient attention; this book aims to address just such a material textuality. This attention to the materiality of Chaucer's sources is further explored and developed by reading the Prologue to the Wife of Bath's Tale and the Clerk's Tale through their early fourteenth-century manuscripts, taking account not just of the text but also of the numerous marginal glosses. Within this context, then, the question of Chaucer's authorship of some of these glosses is considered.

Bartolome De Las Casas. A Biography
The Dominican priest Bartolome de las Casas (1485-1566) was a prominent chronicler of the early Spanish conquest of the Americas, a noted protector of the American Indians and arguably the most significant figure in the early Spanish Empire after Christopher Columbus. Following an epiphany in 1514, Las Casas fought the Spanish control of the Indies for the rest of his life, writing vividly about the brutality of the Spanish conquistadors. Once a settler and exploiter of the American Indians, he became their defender, breaking ground for the modern human rights movement. Las Casas brought his understanding of Christian scripture to the forefront in his defense of the Indians, challenging the premise that the Indians of the New World were any less civilized or capable of practising Christianity than Europeans. Bartolome de las Casas: A Biography is the first major English-language and scholarly biography of Las Casas' life in a generation.

Clayton, Mary ( ed. & transl.)
Old English Poems of Christ and His Saints
Old english-english

Religious piety has rarely been animated as vigorously as in Old English Poems of Christ and His Saints. Ranging from lyrical to dramatic to narrative, the individual poems show great inventiveness in reimagining perennial Christian topics. In different poems, for example, Christ expels Lucifer from heaven, resists the devil's temptation on earth, mounts the cross with zeal to face death, harrows hell at the urging of John the Baptist, appears in disguise to pilot a ship, and presides over the Last Judgment. Satan and the fallen angels lament their plight in a vividly imagined hell and plot against Christ and his saints.

In Andreas the poet relates, in language reminiscent of Beowulf, the tribulations of the apostles Andrew and Matthew in a city of cannibals. In The Vision of the Cross (also known as The Dream of the Rood), the cross speaks as a Germanic warrior intolerably torn between the imperative to protect his Lord and the duty to become his means of execution. In Guthlac A, an Anglo-Saxon warrior abandons his life of violence to do battle as a hermit against demons in the fens of Lincolnshire. As a collection these ten anonymous poems vividly demonstrate the extraordinary hybrid that emerges when traditional Germanic verse adapts itself to Christian themes.

Creating Christian Granada: Society and Religious Culture in an Old-World Frontier City, 1492-1600
Creating Christian Granada provides a richly detailed examination of a critical and transitional episode in Spain's march to global empire. The city of Granada - Islam's final bastion on the Iberian peninsula - surrendered to the control of Spain's 'Catholic Monarchs' Isabella and Ferdinand on January 2, 1492. Over the following century, Spanish state and Church officials, along with tens of thousands of Christian immigrant settlers, transformed the formerly Muslim city into a Christian one.

With constant attention to situating the Granada case in the broader comparative contexts of the medieval reconquista tradition on the one hand and sixteenth-century Spanish imperialism in the Americas on the other, Coleman carefully charts the changes in the conquered city's social, political, religious, and physical landscapes. In the process, he sheds light on the local factors contributing to the emergence of tensions between the conquerors and Granada's formerly Muslim, 'native' morisco community in the decades leading up to the crown-mandated expulsion of most of the city's moriscos in 1569-1570.

Despite the failure to assimilate the moriscos, Granada's status as a frontier Christian community under construction fostered among much of the immigrant community innovative religious reform ideas and programs that shaped in direct ways a variety of church-wide reform movements in the era of the ecumenical Council of Trent (1545-1563). Coleman concludes that the process by which reforms of largely Granadan origin contributed significantly to transformations in the Church as a whole forces a reconsideration of traditional 'top-down' conceptions of sixteenth-century Catholic reform.

Conklin Akbari, S.
Idols in the East. European Representations of Islam and the Orient, 1100 - 1450
Representations of Muslims have never been more common in the Western imagination than they are today. Building on Orientalist stereotypes constructed over centuries, the figure of the wily Arab has given rise, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, to the "Islamist" terrorist. In Idols in the East, Suzanne Conklin Akbari explores the premodern background of some of the Orientalist types still pervasive in present-day depictions of Muslims—the irascible and irrational Arab, the religiously deviant Islamist—and about how these stereotypes developed over time.

Idols in the East contributes to the recent surge of interest in European encounters with Islam and the Orient in the premodern world. Focusing on the medieval period, Akbari examines a broad range of texts including encyclopedias, maps, medical and astronomical treatises, chansons de geste, romances, and allegories to paint an unusually diverse portrait of medieval culture. Among the texts she considers are The Book of John Mandeville, The Song of Roland, Parzival, and Dante's Divine Comedy. From them she reveals how medieval writers and readers understood and explained the differences they saw between themselves and the Muslim other.

Medieval Iberia. Readings from Christian, Muslim, and Jewish Sources, second edition
For some historians, medieval Iberian society was one marked by peaceful coexistence and cross-cultural fertilization; others have sketched a harsher picture of Muslims and Christians engaged in an ongoing contest for political, religious, and economic advantage culminating in the fall of Muslim Granada and the expulsion of the Jews in the late fifteenth century.
The reality that emerges in Medieval Iberia is more nuanced than either of these scenarios can comprehend. Now in an expanded, second edition, this monumental collection offers unparalleled access to the multicultural complexity of the lands that would become modern Portugal and Spain.
The documents collected in Medieval Iberia date mostly from the eighth through the fifteenth centuries and have been translated from Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, Judeo-Arabic, Castilian, Catalan, and Portuguese by many of the most eminent scholars in the field of Iberian studies.Nearly one quarter of this edition is new, including visual materials and increased coverage of Jewish and Muslim affairs, as well as more sources pertaining to women, social and economic history, and domestic life.
This primary source material ranges widely across historical chronicles, poetry, and legal and religious sources, and each is accompanied by a brief introduction placing the text in its historical and cultural setting. Arranged chronologically, the documents are also keyed so as to be accessible to readers interested in specific topics such as urban life, the politics of the royal courts, interfaith relations, or women, marriage, and the family.

Learning and Culture in Carolingian Europe. Letters, Numbers, Exegesis, and Manuscripts
Nine of the ten essays in this collection appeared first between 1995 and 2005. Centered in the Carolingian age, they explore how the seventh-century Visio Baronti was read in the ninth century and how social and cultural imperatives transformed the life of scholarship, schools and learning in Carolingian Europe. Several essays consider the significance of numerical and scientific studies in the Carolingian curriculum, including the impact of Bede's scientific works in the schools and on the thought of John Scottus (Eriugena). Another reconstructs Eriugena's early career in light of his Glossae divinae historiae. Carolingian biblical culture is the subject of two essays, including a reading of Haimo of Auxerre's commentary on Ezechiel that highlights the unfinished and unpublished commentary's critique of Carolingian society. A poem in the Anthologia Latina long ascribed to Octavian, the Roman emperor, is restored to the monastic culture of the ninth century. Finally, an article on the Laon Formulary, originally published in French in 1973, is here translated and revised.

Cooper, Donal, Janet Robson
The Making of Assisi. The Pope, the Franciscans, and the Painting of the Basilica
For a brief moment at the close of the 13th century, the town of Assisi was the focus for the two greatest powers in the Latin Church: the Roman papacy and the Franciscan Order. The election in 1288 of Nicholas IV, the first Franciscan pope, was the catalyst for the creation of frescoes of unprecedented intellectual ambition in the Basilica of San Francesco. At the heart of the new decorative scheme were twenty-eight scenes depicting the life of Saint Francis. Putting to one side the long debate about whether the Saint Francis cycle was or was not painted by Giotto, The Making of Assisi takes a fresh approach and treats the cycle as part of a larger, integrated, and far-reaching program of renewal at the Basilica.

In this deeply researched, illuminating, and beautifully illustrated book, Donal Cooper and Janet Robson investigate the particular historical moment in which the frescoes were made, casting new light on their patronage and iconography.

Galen, De diebus decretoriis. From Greek into Arabic. A Critical Edition, with Translation and Commentary, of Hunayn ibn Ishaq, Kitab ayyam al-buhran
This volume presents the first edition of the Arabic translation, by Hunayn ibn Ishaq, of Galen's Critical Days (De diebus decretoriis), together with the first translation of the text into a modern language. The substantial introduction contextualizes the treatise within the Greek and Arabic traditions.

Galen's Critical Days was a founding text of astrological medicine. In febrile illnesses, the critical days are the days on which an especially severe pattern of symptoms, a crisis, was likely to occur. The crisis was thought to expel the disease-producing substances from the body. If its precise timing were known, the physician could prepare the patient so that the crisis would be most beneficial. After identifying the critical days based on empirical data and showing how to use them in therapy, Galen explains the critical days via the moon's influence.

In the historical introduction Glen Cooper discusses the translation of the Critical Days in Arabic, and adumbrates its possible significance in the intellectual debates and political rivalries among the 9th-century Baghdad elite. It is argued that Galen originally composed the Critical Days both to confound the Skeptics of his own day and to refute a purely mathematical, rationalist approach to science. These features made the text useful in the rivalries between Baghdad scholars. Al-Kindi (d.c. 866) famously propounded a mathematical approach to science akin to the latter. The scholar-bureaucrat responsible for funding this translation, Muhammad ibn Musa (d. 873), al-Kindi's nemesis, may have found the treatise useful in refuting that approach. The commentary and notes to the facing page translation address issues of translation, as well as important concepts.

Communities of Devotion. Religious Orders and Society in East Central Europe, 1450-1800
Between the later middle ages and the eighteenth century, religious orders were in the vanguard of reform movements within the Christian church. Recent scholarship on medieval Europe has emphasised how mendicants exercised a significant influence on the religiosity of the laity by actually shaping their spirituality and piety. In a similar way for the early modern period, religious orders have been credited with disseminating Tridentine reform, training new clergy, gaining new converts and bringing those who had strayed back into the fold. Much about this process, however, still remains unknown, particularly with regards to east central Europe.

Exploring the complex relationship between western monasticism and lay society in east central Europe across a broad chronological timeframe, this collection provides a re-examination of the level and nature of interaction between members of religious orders and the communities around them. That the studies in this collection are all located in east central Europe - Transylvania, Hungary, Austria, and Bohemia- fulfils a second key aim of the volume: the examination of clerical and lay piety in a region of Europe almost entirely ignored by western scholarship.

As such the volume provides an important addition to current scholarship, showcasing fresh research on a subject and region on which little has been published in English. The volume further contributes to the reintegration of eastern and western European history, expanding the existing parameters of scholarly discourse into late medieval and early modern religious practice and piety.

Saint Francis of Assisi continues to be counted among the most important personalities of history.

This biography by Lawrence Cunningham looks anew at St. Francis's life and legacy, seeking to counter efforts to romanticize him yet without diminishing his deep piety or abiding significance.

Promised Bodies: Time, Language and Corporeality in Medieval Women's Mystical Texts
In Christianity, the body is a potentially transformative vehicle, and the writings of Hadewijch of Brabant, a thirteenth-century beguine, engage with this tradition in ways both singular to her mysticism and indicative of her theological milieu. This study links the embodied poetics of Hadewijch's visions and letters to the work of such mystics and visionaries as Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, and Marguerite of Oingt. It introduces new criteria for re-assessing the style, language, interpretative practices, forms of literacy, and uses of textuality in women's mystical texts.

Abbot Joachim of Fiore and Joachimism. Selected Articles
In the articles included in this collection, Professor Daniel argues that Abbot Joachim of Fiore was a disciple of Bernard of Clairvaux whose tertius status was reformist, not millenialist. Like the other reformists, Gerhoch of Reichersberg and Hildegard of Bingen, Joachim looked forward to the coming of a thoroughly reformed, holy church to be achieved in the near future by reform of the episcopate and the clergy. The status of the Holy Spirit was the culmination of the preceding status, not a radically new beginning. Apocalypticism in both its reformist and in its imperialist versions was part of the mainstream, despite the efforts of the schoolmen to suppress it. The author also sheds significant new light on apocalyptic thinking in the mid-fourteenth century with a thorough analysis of Henry of Kirkstede's vade mecum, Cambridge Corpus Christi 404 and his first edition of Henry's De antichristo et de fine mundi. This study, and three others, are published here for the first time.

Davies, B.
Thomas Aquinas on God and Evil
Brian Davies offers the first in-depth study of Saint Thomas Aquinas's thoughts on God and evil, revealing that Aquinas's thinking about God and evil can be traced through his metaphysical philosophy, his thoughts on God and creation, and his writings about Christian revelation and the doctrines of the Trinity and the Incarnation. Davies first gives an introduction to Aquinas's philosophical theology, as well as a nuanced analysis of the ways in which Aquinas's writings have been considered over time. For hundreds of years scholars have argued that Aquinas's views on God and evil were original and different from those of his contemporaries. Davies shows that Aquinas's views were by modern standards very original, but that in their historical context they were more traditional than many scholars since have realized. Davies also provides insight into what we can learn from Aquinas's philosophy. Thomas Aquinas on God and Evil is a clear and engaging guide for anyone who struggles with the relation of God and theology to the problem of evil.

The Oxford Handbook of Aquinas
Thomas Aquinas (1224/6-1274) lived an active, demanding academic and ecclesiastical life that ended while he was still comparatively young. He nonetheless produced many works, varying in length from a few pages to a few volumes. The present book is an introduction to this influential author and a guide to his thought on almost all the major topics on which he wrote.

The book begins with an account of Aquinas's life and works. The next section contains a series of essays that set Aquinas in his intellectual context. They focus on the philosophical sources that are likely to have influenced his thinking, the most prominent of which were certain Greek philosophers (chiefly Aristotle), Latin Christian writers (such as Augustine), and Jewish and Islamic authors (such as Maimonides and Avicenna).

The subsequent sections of the book address topics that Aquinas himself discussed. These include metaphysics, the existence and nature of God, ethics and action theory, epistemology, philosophy of mind and human nature, the nature of language, and an array of theological topics, including Trinity, Incarnation, sacraments, resurrection, and the problem of evil, among others. These sections include more than thirty contributions on topics central to Aquinas's own worldview.

The final sections of the volume address the development of Aquinas's thought and its historical influence. Any attempt to present the views of a philosopher in an earlier historical period that is meant to foster reflection on that thinker's views needs to be both historically faithful and also philosophically engaged.

The present book combines both exposition and evaluation insofar as its contributors have space to engage in both. This Handbook is therefore meant to be useful to someone wanting to learn about Aquinas's philosophy and theology while also looking for help in philosophical interaction with it.

Rondom De Mondingen Van Rijn & Maas. Landschap En Bewoning Tussen De 3e En 9e Eeuw in Zuid-Holland, in Het Bijzonder De Oude Rijnstreek
In de Vroege Middeleeuwen maakte het kustgebied van Zuid-Holland deel uit van West-Friesland. Van menselijke aanwezigheid in deze periode getuigen niet alleen enkele historische bronnen en oude plaatsnamen, maar vooral archeologische vondsten. Dit boek geeft voor het eerst een gedetailleerd overzicht van de bewoningsgeschiedenis van de estuaria van de Oude Rijn en Maas tussen circa 270 en 900 na Chr., met tal van nieuwe inzichten. Door de rijkdom aan archeologische gegevens ligt de nadruk op de Oude Rijnstreek.

Aan de hand van hoofdstukken over het toenmalige landschap, archeologische vindplaatsen, nederzettingen, huisbouwtraditie en handelscontacten, wordt gekeken welke plaats Zuid-Holland op cultureel en politiek vlak innam ten opzichte van de omliggende gebieden. Daarbij wordt ook ingegaan op de vraag naar de tribale verhoudingen langs de Hollandse kust en wat het etiket 'Fries' daarbij voorstelt. Dit heeft ook gevolgen voor onze kijk op het Friese koninkrijk.

Menno Dijkstra (Lisse, 1971) studeerde in 1996 af aan het Instituut voor Pre- en Protohistorie van de Universiteit van Amsterdam, met als specialisatie de archeologie van de Middeleeuwen en Nieuwe tijd. In 1997 begon zijn promotieonderzoek bij het Frisia Project. Dit proefschrift is daar het resultaat van. Momenteel is hij werkzaam als senior archeoloog.

Imagining Jerusalem in the Medieval West
Jerusalem was the object of intense study and devotion throughout the Middle Ages. This collection of essays illuminates ways in which the city was represented by Christians in Western Europe, c. 700-1500. Focusing on maps in manuscripts and early printed books, it also considers views and architectural replicas, and treats depictions of the Temple and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre alongside those of Jerusalem as a whole.

Authors draw on new research and a range of disciplinary perspectives to show how such depictions responded to developments in the West, as well as to the shifting political circumstances of Jerusalem and its wider region. One central theme is the relationship between text, image, and manuscript context, including discussion of images as scriptural exegesis and the place of schematic diagrams and plans in the presentation of knowledge. Another is the impact of trends in learning, such as the reception of Jewish scholarship, the move from monastic to university education, and the creation of yet wider audiences through mendicant preaching and the development of printing.

The volume also examines the role of changing liturgical and devotional practices, including imagined pilgrimage and the mapping of Jerusalem onto European cities and local landscapes. Finally, it seeks to elucidate how two- and three-dimensional representations of the city both resulted from and prompted processes of mental visualisation. In this way, the volume is conceived as a contribution to manuscript studies, the history of cartography, visual studies, and the history of ideas.

Doyle, J.P. and Stone, M.W. F. (ed)
Collected Studies on Francisco Suarez SJ (1548-1617)
Although the Jesuit Francisco Suarez (1548-1617) is one of the most important figures of late scholasticism, his work has not received the attention it deserves in English-speaking scholarly literature. One exception to this generalization is found in the work of the American scholar John P. Doyle, whose ground-breaking studies of several important areas of Suarez's complex but highly original system of thought have helped to make the Jesuit's ideas accessible to several generations of historians of philosophy. This volume gathers together Doyle's most important articles on the philosophical theology, metaphysics, ethics, and legal philosophy of Suarez, and is prefaced by an introductory chapter that places the Jesuit's life and thought in context. The fruit of over forty years of labor, the volume is a fitting tribute to a scholar whose work serves as a point of entry into the philosophy and theology of Francisco Suarez.

Duffy, Eamon
Fires of Faith. Catholic England under Mary Tudor
The reign of Mary Tudor has been remembered as an era of sterile repression, when a reactionary monarch launched a doomed attempt to reimpose Catholicism on an unwilling nation. Above all, the burning alive of more than 280 men and women for their religious beliefs seared the rule of 'Bloody Mary' into the protestant imagination as an alien aberration in the onward and upward march of the English-speaking people. In this controversial reassessment, the renowned reformation historian Eamon Duffy argues that Mary's regime was neither inept nor backward looking. Led by the queen's cousin, Cardinal Reginald Pole, Mary's church dramatically reversed the religious revolution imposed under the child king Edward VI. Inspired by the values of the European Counter-Reformation, the cardinal and the queen reinstated the papacy and launched an effective propaganda campaign through pulpit and press. Even the most notorious aspect of the regime, the burnings, proved devastatingly effective. Only the death of the childless queen and her cardinal on the same day in November 1558 brought the protestant Elizabeth to the throne, thereby changing the course of English history.

Duffy, Eamon
Marking the Hours. English People and their Prayers, 1240-1570
In this richly illustrated book, religious historian Eamon Duffy discusses the "Book of Hours", unquestionably the most intimate and most widely used book of the later Middle Ages. He examines surviving copies of the personal prayer books which were used for private, domestic devotions, and in which people commonly left traces of their lives. Manuscript prayers, biographical jottings, affectionate messages, autographs, and pious paste-ins often crowd the margins, fly-leaves, and blank spaces of such books. From these sometimes clumsy jottings, viewed by generations of librarians and art historians as blemishes at best, vandalism at worst, Duffy teases out precious clues to the private thoughts and public contexts of their owners, and insights into the times in which they lived and prayed. His analysis has a special relevance for the history of women, since women feature very prominently among the identifiable owners and users of the medieval Book of Hours. Books of Hours range from lavish, illuminated manuscripts worth a king's ransom, to mass-produced and sparsely illustrated volumes costing a few shillings or pence. Some include customized prayers and pictures requested by the purchaser, and others, handed down from one family member to another, bear the often poignant traces of a family's history over several generations. Duffy places these volumes in the context of religious and social change, above all the Reformation, discusses their significance to Catholics and Protestants, and describes the controversy they inspired under successive Tudor regimes. He looks closely at several special volumes, including the cherished "Book of Hours" that Sir Thomas More kept with him in the Tower of London as he awaited execution.

The Stripping of the Altars: Traditional Religion in England, c. 1400-c. 1580
This profoundly influential book re-examines events leading up to the Reformation in England and illuminates our understanding of the period. A prize-winning account, it recreates lay people's experience of the religion of the pre-Reformation church showing that late-medieval Catholicism was neither decadent nor decayed, but was a strong and vigorous tradition, and that the Reformation represented a violent rupture from a popular and theologically respectable religious system. For this edition, Duffy has written a substantial new introduction, including a discussion of the Lollards and reflecting on recent developments in Reformation studies.

Art and Identity in Thirteenth Century Byzantium. Hagia Sophia and the Empire of Trebizond
The church of Hagia Sophia in Trebizond, built by the emperor Manuel I Grand Komnenos (1238-63) in the aftermath of the fall of Constantinople to the Fourth Crusade, is the finest surviving Byzantine imperial monument of its period. Art and Identity in Thirteenth-Century Byzantium is the first investigation of the church in more than thirty years, and is extensively illustrated in colour and black-and-white, with many images that have never previously been published. Antony Eastmond examines the architectural, sculptural and painted decorations of the church, placing them in the context of contemporary developments elsewhere in the Byzantine world, in Seljuq Anatolia and among the Caucasian neighbours of Trebizond. Knowledge of this area has been transformed in the last 20 years, following the collapse of the Soviet Union. The new evidence that has emerged enables a radically different interpretation of the church to be reached, and opens questions of cultural interchange on the borders of the Christian and Muslim worlds of eastern Anatolia, the Caucasus and Persia. This study uses the church and its decoration to examine questions of Byzantine identity and imperial ideology in the 13th century. This is central to any understanding of the period, as the fall of Constantinople in 1204 divided the Byzantine empire and forced the successor states in Nicaea, Epiros and Trebizond to redefine their concepts of empire in exile. Art is here exploited as significant historical evidence for the nature of imperial power in a contested empire. It is suggested that imperial identity was determined as much by craftsmen and expectations of imperial power as by the emperor's decree; and that this was a credible alternative Byzantine identity to that developed in the empire of Nicaea

Eckhart, Meister
Over God wil ik zwijgen. Preken en Traktaten
De geschriften van Meister Eckhart (1260-1327) behoren met die van zijn leerlingen Johannes Tauler en Heinrich Seuse tot de belangwekkendste werken in de traditie van de Europese filosofische mystiek. De meest in de volkstaal geschreven preken en traktaten van Meister Eckhart laten hem zien als een bezield denker met een scherpzinnig inzicht in de menselijke ervaring. De combinatie van autonomie en overgave - eenheid in gescheidenheid - vormt de kern van het denken van Eckhart. Hij is een meester in het hanteren van de paradox.

Edwards, John (ed)
The Jews in western Europe, 1400-1600
As European politics, society, economy and religion underwent epoch-making changes between 1400 and 1600, the treatment of Europe's Jews by the non-Jewish majority was, then as in later periods, a symptom of social problems and tensions in the Continent as a whole.

Through a broad-ranging collection of documents, John Edwards sets out to present a vivid picture of the Jewish presence in European life during this vital and turbulent period. Subjects covered include the Jews' own economic presence and culture, social relations between Jews and Christians, the policies and actions of Christian authorities in Church and State. He also draws upon original source material to convey ordinary people's prejudices about Jews, including myths about Jewish 'devilishness', money-grabbing, and 'ritual murder' of Christian children.

Full introductory and explanatory material makes accessible the historical context of the subject and highlights the insights offered by the documents as well as the pitfalls to be avoided in this area of historical enquiry.

Hagiography in Byzantium: Literature, Social History and Cult
Involving a vast number of texts, saintly heroes and authors, Byzantine hagiography stands out as a field of scholarly research highly rewarding for both the philologist and the historian. The studies reproduced in this volume cover a chronological range from late antiquity to the Paleologan era. They bring together annotated editions of specific texts and discussions of their contexts, complemented by comprehensive surveys of saintly and monastic cult. Having appeared over the last twenty years, they also illustrate and reflect upon the significant development and re-orientation which has marked the study of hagiography in recent decades.

Egbert of Liege, Robert Gary Babcock ( transl.)
The Well-Laden Ship
Latin- english

The Well-Laden Ship (Fecunda ratis) is an early eleventh-century Latin poem composed of ancient and medieval proverbs, fables, and folktales. Compiled by Egbert of Liege, it was planned as a first reader for beginning students. This makes it one of the few surviving works from the Middle Ages written explicitly for schoolroom use. Most of the content derives from the Bible, especially the wisdom books, from the Church Fathers, and from the ancient poets, notably Vergil, Juvenal, and Horace; but, remarkably, Egbert also included Latin versions of much folklore from the spoken languages.

It features early forms of nursery rhymes (for example Jack Sprat), folk tales (for instance, various tales connected with Reynard the Fox), and even fairy tales (notably Little Red Riding Hood). The poem also contains medieval versions of many still popular sayings, such as 'Don't look a gift horse in the mouth', 'When the cat's away, the mice will play', and 'The apple doesn't fall far from the tree'. The Well-Laden Ship, which survives in a single medieval manuscript, has been edited previously only once (in 1889) and has never been translated in english. It will fascinate anyone interested in proverbial wisdom, folklore, medieval education, or medieval poetry.

Elia, A.F. D`
A Sudden Terror. The Plot to Murder the Pope in Renaissance Rome
In 1468, on the final night of Carnival in Rome, Pope Paul II sat enthroned above the boisterous crowd, when a scuffle caught his eye. His guards had intercepted a mysterious stranger trying urgently to convey a warning - conspirators were lying in wait to slay the pontiff. Twenty humanist intellectuals were quickly arrested, tortured on the rack, and imprisoned in separate cells in the damp dungeon of Castel Sant'Angelo. Anthony D'Elia offers a compelling, surprising story that reveals a Renaissance world that witnessed the rebirth of interest in the classics, a thriving homoerotic culture, the clash of Christian and pagan values, the contest between republicanism and a papal monarchy, and tensions separating Christian Europeans and Muslim Turks. Using newly discovered sources, he shows why the pope targeted the humanists, who were seen as dangerously pagan in their Epicurean morals and their Platonic beliefs about the soul and insurrectionist in their support of a more democratic Church. Their fascination with Sultan Mehmed II connected them to the Ottoman Turks, enemies of Christendom, and the love of the classical world tied them to recent rebellious attempts to replace papal rule with a republic harking back to the glorious days of Roman antiquity. From the cosmetic-wearing, parrot-loving pontiff to the Turkish sultan, savage in war but obsessed with Italian culture, D'Elia brings to life a Renaissance world full of pageantry, mayhem, and conspiracy and offers a fresh interpretation of humanism as a dynamic communal movement.

The Bride of Christ Goes to Hell. Metaphor and Embodiment in the Lives of Pious Women, 200-1500
The early Christian writer Tertullian first applied the epithet "bride of Christ" to the uppity virgins of Carthage as a means of enforcing female obedience. Henceforth, the virgin as Christ's spouse was expected to manifest matronly modesty and due submission, hobbling virginity's ancient capacity to destabilize gender roles. In the early Middle Ages, the focus on virginity and the attendant anxiety over its possible loss reinforced the emphasis on claustration in female religious communities, while also profoundly disparaging the nonvirginal members of a given community. With the rising importance of intentionality in determining a person's spiritual profile in the high Middle Ages, the title of bride could be applied and appropriated to laywomen who were nonvirgins as well. Such instances of democratization coincided with the rise of bridal mysticism and a progressive somatization of female spirituality. These factors helped cultivate an increasingly literal and eroticized discourse: women began to undergo mystical enactments of their union with Christ, including ecstatic consummations and vivid phantom pregnancies. Female mystics also became increasingly intimate with their confessors and other clerical confidants, who were sometimes represented as stand-ins for the celestial bridegroom. The dramatic merging of the spiritual and physical in female expressions of religiosity made church authorities fearful, an anxiety that would coalesce around the figure of the witch and her carnal induction into the Sabbath.

Elukin, J.
Living Together, Living Apart. Rethinking Jewish-Christian Relations in the Middle Ages
This book challenges the standard conception of the Middle Ages as a time of persecution for Jews. Jonathan Elukin traces the experience of Jews in Europe from late antiquity through the Renaissance and Reformation, revealing how the pluralism of medieval society allowed Jews to feel part of their local communities despite recurrent expressions of hatred against them. Elukin shows that Jews and Christians coexisted more or less peacefully for much of the Middle Ages, and that the violence directed at Jews was largely isolated and did not undermine their participation in the daily rhythms of European society.

The extraordinary picture that emerges is one of Jews living comfortably among their Christian neighbours, working with Christians, and occasionally cultivating lasting friendships even as Christian culture often demonized Jews. As Elukin makes clear, the expulsions of Jews from England, France, Spain, and elsewhere were not the inevitable culmination of persecution, but arose from the religious and political expediencies of particular rulers. He demonstrates that the history of successful Jewish-Christian interaction in the Middle Ages in fact laid the social foundations that gave rise to the Jewish communities of modern Europe.

Elukin compels us to rethink our assumptions about this fascinating period in history, offering us a new lens through which to appreciate the rich complexities of the Jewish experience in medieval Christendom.

Monastiek observantisme en Moderne Devotie in de Noordelijke Nederlanden
In vrijwel alle geledingen van het monastieke landschap manifesteerde zich in de loop van de vijftiende eeuw een duidelijk streven naar hervormingen, een terugkeer naar de oorspronkelijke beginselen en een daarmee gepaard gaande strikte naleving van de orderegels. Deze ontwikkeling, die zich lang niet altijd zonder slag of stoot voltrok, wordt doorgaans aangeduid als 'monastiek observantisme'. Wat betreft de noordelijke Nederlanden heeft het onderzoek hiernaar zich in de laatste decennia overwegend gericht op de Moderne Devotie. Deze bundel wil de aandacht juist vestigen op observantiebewegingen in de oudere kloosterorden, waarbij de wisselwerking tussen het traditionele kloosterwezen en de Moderne Devotie uiteraard wel aan de orde komt.

De nalatenschap van de Paulusabdij in Utrecht
Hoewel de Utrechtse Paulusabdij na Egmond de oudste benedictijner stichting is in de noordelijke Nederlanden, resteert er slechts een zeer fragmentarische nalatenschap. De oudste originele archivalia dateren pas van de veertiende eeuw en ook van de bibliotheek zijn maar weinig handschriften van vóór 1300 overgeleverd. In de achttiende en negentiende eeuw werd de kerk van de Paulusabdij gesloopt. Van het interieur is zelfs geen enkele afbeelding bekend.

De bijdragen in deze bundel verschaffen een beter zicht op de rijke geschiedenis van de Paulusabdij dan tot voor kort mogelijk was.

Alle Wege fuhrten nach Rom. Italien als Zentrum der Mittelalterlichen Welt
Was wir heute als Globalisierung erleben, gab es in beschränkterem Maßstab auch im Mittelalter: Verkehrswege verkürzten sich oder wurden neu erschlossen, Menschen und Handelswaren aus fernen Gegenden erreichten Europa. EinKnotenpunkt dieser Entwicklung lag in Italien: Seerepubliken wie Amalfi , Genua und Venedig erschlossen die Meere bis zu Handelsniederlassungen selbst auf der Krim im Schwarzen Meer, Reisende wie Marco Polo erreichten auf dem Landweg ferne Länder bis nach China, das Papsttum spannte über ganz Europa ein weites Netz von Verwaltungsstrukturen sowie Gesandten und bildete gleichzeitig einen Anziehungspunkt für weltliche Mächte, sei es den deutschen Kaiser oder den französischen König. Italienische Familien wurden an verschiedenen Orten in Europa heimisch, Menschen aus ganz Europa besuchten Italien als Pilger oder Händler und siedelten sich auch dort an. Die Prozesse, Strukturen und Auswirkungen dieser frühen Globalisierung verfolgt Thomas Ertl sachkundig und anschaulich.

Saint Anselm of Canterbury
St Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109) was one of the greatest Christian writers of medieval Europe. Although best known as the inventor of the famous 'ontological argument' for God's existence, his writings cover all the chief aspects of Christian doctrine and have been a major influence on western theology. Equal to Anselm's theology are his spiritual writings, which are alive with an understanding of the gentleness and mercy of a God who comes to meet humanity in its suffering and striving. In this exceptional and authoritative study, Dr. Evans explores the full range of Anselm's work, expertly placing both the theology and the devotional writings in context for the modern reader.

Evans, H.C. (ed.) & Ratliff, B. (ed.)
Byzantium and Islam. Age of Transition
This magnificent volume explores the epochal transformations and unexpected continuities in the Byzantine Empire from the 7th to the 9th century. At the beginning of the 7th century, the Empire's southern provinces, the vibrant, diverse areas of North Africa and the eastern Mediterranean, were at the crossroads of exchanges reaching from Spain to China. These regions experienced historic upheavals when their Christian and Jewish communities encountered the emerging Islamic world, and by the 9th century, an unprecedented cross-fertilization of cultures had taken place.

This extraordinary age is brought vividly to life in insightful contributions by leading international scholars, accompanied by sumptuous illustrations of the period's most notable arts and artefacts. Resplendent images of authority, religion, and trade - embodied in precious metals, brilliant textiles, fine ivories, elaborate mosaics, manuscripts, and icons, many of them never before published - highlight the dynamic dialogue between the rich array of Byzantine styles and the newly forming Islamic aesthetic.

With its masterful exploration of two centuries that would shape the emerging medieval world, this illuminating publication provides a unique interpretation of a period that still resonates today.

Commentaries on Plato Vol 1 Phaedrus and Ion (Latin - English)
Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499), the Florentine scholar-philosopher-magus, was largely responsible for the Renaissance revival of Plato. The publication of his Latin translations of the dialogues in 1484 was an intellectual event of the first magnitude, making the Platonic canon accessible to western Europe after the passing of a millennium and establishing Plato as an authority for Renaissance thought. This volume contains Ficino's extended analysis and commentary on the Phaedrus, which he explicates as a meditation on "beauty in all its forms" and a sublime work of theology. In the commentary on the Ion, Ficino explores a poetics of divine inspiration that leads to the Neoplatonist portrayal of the soul as a rhapsode whose song is an ascent into the mind of God. Both works bear witness to Ficino's attempt to revive a Christian Platonism and what might be called an "Orphic Christianity".

Deel II van de brieven, die Ficino (1433-1499) schreef aan zijn vrienden. Een wijs en warmvoelend mens geeft raad: iedere brief is individueel gericht maar is tevens voor de mensheid geschreven. Geef vrijelijk, wat vrijelijk ontvangen werd” is de ondertitel van het tweede deel van de brievenverzameling van de Italiaanse geleerde die Plato en het Corpus Hermeticum bekend maakte aan de Europese Renaissance-mens. “Gelukkig leven is, zich verheugen over de waarheid; deze echte vreugde over de waarheid is het geluk zelf … absolute waarheid is in zichzelf het licht Gods. De waarheid der dingen is de afglans van God die ze in zich dragen…”(Brief 20)
Ficino schreef vele brieven aan zijn vrienden: kunstenaars, theologen, geleerden en staatslieden. Iedere brief is individueel, maar tegelijk voor de mensheid geschreven. Het doel is steeds de liefde voor de waarheid in de mens te doen ontsteken en de menselijke geest te openen voor het zoeken naar de waarheid.

Contested Canonizations. The Last Medieval Saints 1482-1523
This work, which forms an important bridge between medieval and Counter-Reformation sanctity and canonization, provides a richly contextualized analysis of the ways in which the last five candidates for sainthood before the Reformation - Bonaventure, Leopold of Austria, Francis of Paola, Antoninus of Florence, and Benno of Meissen - came to be canonized. Finucane uncovers the complex interplay of factors that lay behind the success of such campaigns; success that could never be taken for granted, even when the candidate's holy credentials appeared uncontroversial and his backers politically powerful.

Meister Eckhart. Die Geburt der deutschen Mystik aus dem Geist der arabischen Philosophie
Dieses Buch verändert das Bild Eckharts durch neue faktische Nachweise. Es konstruiert keine neue "Tradition", sondern rekonstruiert eine belegbare, wechselvolle philosophische Diskussion. Die Methode ist also nicht Intuitionoder Assoziation, sondern historisch-philologischer Beweis. Dabei zeigt sich, daß, vermittelt durch Albertus Magnus und Dietrich von Freiberg, der arabische Philosoph Averroes in Eckharts Denken eine zentrale Rolle spielt. Es geht dabei nicht um das Vorkommen oder die Menge von Averroes-Zitaten, sondern um die argumentative Funktion der Theorien des Averroes im Denken Eckharts. Durch Albert und Dietrich war ihm ein arabisch-jüdisches intellektuelles Umfeld eröffnet, in dem auch Avicenna und Moses Maimonides von Bedeutung sind. In stringenter philologischer Argumentation zeichnet Flasch ein neues, ungewöhnliches Bild Meister Eckharts.

Es führt ein in Meister Eckharts Denken und lädt ein, seine Werke zu lesen und seine Aussagen mitzudenken. Kurt Flasch behandelt dabei klar und prägnant alle Werke Eckharts und bezieht sie, wo möglich, auf ihren biographischen Hintergrund und auf die geschichtliche Welt, aus der Eckhart kam und gegen die er sich stellte. Die wichtigen Lebensstationen Paris, Erfurt, Straßburg oder Köln kommen ebenso zur Darstellung wie Eckharts tragisches Schicksal - der Tod in Avignon, der Inquisitionsprozess und die Verurteilung durch seine Kirche.

Franklin, S. (transl.)
Sermons and Rhetoric of Kievan Rus`
The authors included in this volume, Ilarion, Klim Smoljatic, and Kirill of Turov, are remarkable for both their personal and literary achievements. Appointed in 1051 by Prince Jaroslav the Wise, Ilarion was the first of only two recorded 'native' metropolitans of Kiev. His Sermon on Law and Grace constitutes the finest piece of eleventh-century Rus' rhetorical literature. Klim Smoljatic, the second 'native' metropolitan of Rus' (from 1147), is the author of the controversial Epistle to Foma,, which addresses the debate over the proper nature and limits of Christian learning. Finally, the twelfth-century monk Kirill of Turov is best known for his collection of allegorical lessons and some of the most accomplished sermons of Kievan Rus'. The volume contains the first complete translations of the Epistle to Foma and the lessons and sermons of Kirill, as well as an entirely new rendering of the Sermon on Law and Grace. Simon Franklin prefaces the texts with a substantial introduction that places each of the three authors in their historical context and examines the literary qualities as well as textual complexities of these outstanding works of Rus' literature.

Holy Bones, Holy Dust. How Relics Shaped the History of Medieval Europe
Relics affected everyone in medieval society. Saintly morsels such as bones, hair, teeth, and clothes, and items like the Crown of Thorns, coveted by Louis IX of France, were thought to bring the believer closer to the saint who might intercede with God on his or her behalf. In the first comprehensive history in English of the rise of relic cults, Charles Freeman takes readers on a vivid, fast-paced journey from Constantinople to the northern Isles of Scotland over the course of a millennium. In "Holy Bones, Holy Dust", Freeman illustrates that the pervasiveness and variety of relics answered very specific needs of ordinary people across a darkened Europe under threat of political upheavals, disease, and hellfire. But relics were not only venerated - they were traded, collected, lost, stolen, duplicated, and destroyed. They were bargaining chips, good business and good propaganda, politically appropriated across Europe, and even used to wield military power. Freeman examines an expansive array of relics in the broad social and cultural context of their age, showing how the mania for these objects deepens our understanding of the medieval world and why these relics continue to capture our imagination.

Dit is een reisgids voor mensen die ongebaande paden zoeken en die oude routes willen volgen om alert in de wereld van vandaag te staan. De gids neemt u mee naar Umbrie, het groene hart van Italie en het land van Franciscus, de mystieke godzoeker en dierenvriend. De gids begint in Assisi, de stad waar Franciscus geboren en begraven werd en waar nog zo veel aan hem herinnert. Daarna komen de plaatsen uit de nabije en verre omgeving aan bod waar Franciscus en zijn eerste broeders en zusters hun sporen hebben nagelaten. Franciscanie, zoals Helene Nolthenius de streek in haar woord vooraf betitelt, is niet alleen een heilig land, het is ook onbeschrijfelijk mooi.

Fudge, T. A.
Jan Hus. Religious Reform and Social Revolution in Bohemia
A century before Martin Luther and the Reformation, Jan Hus confronted the official Church and helped to change the face of medieval Europe. A key figure in the history of Europe and Christianity and a catalyst for religious reform and social revolution, Jan Hus was poised between tradition and innovation. Taking a stand against the perceived corruption of the Church, his continued defiance led to his excommunication and he was ultimately burned at the stake in 1415. What role did he play in shaping Medieval Europe? And what is his legacy for today? In this important and timely book, Thomas A. Fudge explores Jan Hus, the man, his work and his legacy. Beginning his career at Prague University, this brilliant Bohemian preacher was soon catapulted by virtue of his radical and popular theology to the forefront of European affairs. This book fills a real gap in contemporary understanding of the medieval Church and offers an accessible and authoritative account of a most significant individual and his role in history. Jan Hus belongs to the pantheon of extraordinary figures from medieval religious history. His story is one of triumph and tragedy in a time of chaos and change.

Women and Aristocratic Culture in the Carolingian World
Despite the wealth of scholarship in recent decades on medieval women, we still know much less about the experiences of women in the early Middle Ages than we do about those in later centuries. In Women and Aristocratic Culture in the Carolingian World, Valerie L. Garver offers a fresh appraisal of the cultural and social history of eighth- and ninth-century women. Examining changes in women's lives and in the ways others perceived women during the early Middle Ages, she shows that lay and religious women, despite their legal and social constrictions, played integral roles in Carolingian society.

Gasper, G. E.M.
Anselm of Canterbury and his Theological Inheritance
Anselm of Canterbury is one of the most famous of medieval Christian thinkers, who left a considerable political and intellectual inheritance of his own. This book reveals that the theological and intellectual inheritance available to Anselm was more dynamic, broader and deeper than is traditionally thought and Anselm was influenced by more than just the works of St Augustine. Giles Gasper focuses particularly on the part played by the translated works of the Greek Fathers. Demonstrating how widely the writings of the Fathers of the Church were available in western libraries, Gasper goes on to compare key aspects of doctrine in Anselm's thought with that of the notable Greek Fathers. Questioning the way in which Anselm and other authors have been described, this book moves away from well worn routes of interpretation and provides new perspectives on this most significant figure in the history of the church, the middle ages, and western thought.

Geltner, G.
The Making of Medieval Antifraternalism: Polemic, Violence, Deviance, and Remembrance
The mendicant orders-Augustinians, Carmelites, Dominicans, Franciscans, and several other groups-spread across Europe apace from the early thirteenth century, profoundly influencing numerous aspect of medieval life. But alongside their tremendous success, their members (friars) also encountered derision, scorn, and even violence.

Such opposition, generally known as antifraternalism, is often seen as an ecclesiastical in-house affair or an ideological response to the brethren's laxity: both cases registering a moral decline symptomatic of a decadent church.

Challenging the accuracy of these views, Geltner contends that the phenomenon exhibits a breadth of scope that on the one hand pushes it far beyond its accustomed boundaries, and on the other supports only tenuous links with Reformation or modern forms of anticlericalism.

Drawing from numerous sources, from theological treatises to poetry and criminal court records, Guy Geltner shows that people from all walks of life lambasted and occasionally assaulted the brethren, orchestrating detailed scenes of urban violence in the process. Their myriad motivations and diverse goals preclude us from associating antifraternalism with any one ideology or agenda, let alone allow us to brand many of its proponents as religious reformers.

At the same time, he demonstrates the friars' active role in forging a medieval antifraternal tradition, not only by deviating from their founders' paths to varying degrees, but also by chronicling their suffering inter fideles and thus incorporating it into the orders' identity as the vanguard of Christianity. In doing so, Geltner illuminates a major chapter in Europe's social, urban, and religious history.

Giqatilla, Y.
Book on Punctuation. Flavius Mithridates Latin Translation, The Hebrew Text, and an English Version
Edited by Annett Martini with a Foreword by Giulio Busi.

The Book of Punctuation was written by Yosef Giqatilla (1248 - c. 1325) in his early philosophical-kabbalistic period. The exact date of origin of this short treatise, however, cannot be established with certainty. The text focuses first of all on Hebrew vowels, which are fundamental elements in Giqatilla's theory of creation. The author integrates the vowels in a complex system, assigning a specific task to each of them with respect to the cosmos and to creation, according to their respective grammatical functions. The book, which is inspired both by medieval cosmology and by the philosophy of Maimonides, reveals a unique concept of linguistic mysticism.

State and Church. Studies in Medieval Bulgaria and Byzantium
This collection presents thirteen studies dedicated to the history of medieval Bulgaria and Byzantium from the sixth to the fifteenth centuries. Offering snapshots of the cumulative expertise of three generations of Bulgarian scholars over a quarter of a century, it explores issues of critical import for the functioning of the church and state in medieval Bulgaria, and their intimate linkages to similar phenomena in Byzantium.

A historiographical introduction tracing the development of the field in Bulgaria since the late nineteenth century and an annotated bibliography make this volume particularly useful to Byzantinists and scholars of the medieval Balkans.

Eckhart nu. Tien visies op Meister Eckhart
In herdruk, datum van verschijning (nog) onbekend.

Meister Eckhart (1260-1327), een van de grootste middeleeuwse mystici, staat tegenwoordig volop in de belangstelling. Ter gelegenheid van Eckharts 750e geboortedag verscheen onder redactie van Jaap Goedegebuure en Oek de Jong een bundel beschouwingen over de vraag wat Eckhart ons vandaag de dag te zeggen heeft.

Deze fraai uitgevoerde bundel verkent het universum van Eckhart aan de hand van essays van schrijvers Roel Bentz van den Berg, C.O. Jellema, Oek de Jong, Jan Oegema en Vonne van der Meer, van zenleraar Nico Tydeman, die een uitbundig stuk leverde over Eckhart en het boeddhisme, van theologen en Eckhart-kenners Frans Maas en Marcel Braekers, filosoof Gerard Visser, criticus en literatuurwetenschapper Jaap Goedegebuure en historicus Jef Jacobs, die een meesterlijk portret van Eckhart en zijn tijd vervaardigde. De bundel wordt gecompleteerd met enkele preken van de Meister zelf.

Goff, J. le
Money and the Middle Ages
Jacques Le Goff sets out in this book to explain the role of money, or rather of the various types of money, in the economy, life and mentalities of the Middle Ages. He seeks also to explain how, in a society dominated by religion, the Church viewed money, and how it taught Christians what attitudes they should adopt towards it and towards the uses to which it could be put. He shows that, although money played an important role in the rise of towns and trade and in state formation, there was no capitalism but only a pre-capitalism in the Middle Ages, even by their end, in the absence of a truly global market. This is why economic development remained slow and limited, in spite of some remarkable success stories. It was a period in which it was as important to give money as it was to earn it. True wealth was not yet the wealth of this world, even though money played an increasingly large role in reality and in mentalities.

No similar discussion of this subject, aimed at a wide readership, has previously been published. Written by one of the greatest medievalists, this book will be recognized as a standard work on the topic.

Grafton, A.
Bring out your Dead. The Past as Revelation
The work of the Renaissance humanists comes to life in Anthony Grafton's exploration of the primary sources and modern scholarship, classical and modern elements in the world of European letters from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century.

Tracing the ties that bound the world of humanistic learning in early modern Europe to other social and cultural spheres, Grafton defines the current state of the art of scholarship on early modern European cultural and intellectual history while simultaneously demonstrating how entertaining, enlightening, and relevant that history can be.

Covering a dazzling variety of topics and authors as different as Alberti and Descartes, Grafton maps the grand and meticulous efforts of the past to connect the realm of nature with that of books, the realm of everyday experience with that of passionate reading in massive tomes, and the realm of codes of etiquette and institutions with that of extravagant and joyous erudition--efforts that this book itself brilliantly carries on.

Groebner, V.
Defaced. The Visual Culture of Violence in the Late Middle Ages
In Defaced, Valentin Groebner explores the roots of the visual culture of violence in medieval and Renaissance Europe and shows how contemporary visual culture has been shaped by late medieval images and narratives of violence. For late medieval audiences, as with modern media consumers, horror lies less in the "indescribable" and "alien" than in the familiar and commonplace.From the fourteenth century onward, pictorial representations became increasingly violent, whether in depictions of the Passion, or in vivid and precise images of torture, execution, and war. But not every spectator witnessed the same thing when confronted with terrifying images of a crucified man, misshapen faces, allegedly bloodthirsty conspirators on nocturnal streets, or barbarian fiends on distant battlefields. The profusion of violent imagery provoked a question: how to distinguish the illegitimate violence that threatened and reversed the social order from the proper, "just," and sanctioned use of force? Groebner constructs a persuasive answer to this question by investigating how uncannily familiar medieval dystopias were constructed and deconstructed.

Hadewijch
Het boek der liederen, Band I
In deze vertaling van de 45 liederen van Hadewijch heeft de auteur waarlijk vernieuwend werk verricht. Voor de eerste keer worden deze teksten onomwonden gelezen als mystieke liederen, die een overtuigende spirituele kracht uitstralen. Door Hadewijch radicaal in de traditie van Citeaux en Benedictus te plaatsen, is de auteur erin geslaagd dit liedboek als een uitmuntend document over christelijke spiritualiteit te lezen, en te vertalen. Daartoe selecteerde hij een reeks steeds weer terugkerende sleutelwoorden en zocht hij de betekenis daarvan met succes in de Brieven van Hadewijch zelf.

Door niet toe te geven aan rijmdwang ontstond een sprankelende vertaling, die onmisbaar is voor neerlandici, theologen, en alle mensen die zoeken naar een gefundeerde en leefbare spiritualiteit. Want daarover zingt dit liedboek, rond de grondthema's van het menselijk verlangen, het onvermijdelijk tekort, de universele dienstbaarheid, en het geloof in een spirituele wereld die de hele mens aanspreekt.

Hadewijch
Het boek der liederen, Band II
Meer dan 100 jaar zijn de 45 liederen van Hadewijch een gesloten boek gebleven. In deze studie worden alle sleutelbegrippen onderzocht op de betekenis die ze hebben in de Brieven van Hadewijch. Daardoor gaat er een wereld open waarin deze vrouw op onvergetelijke wijze zingt over het spirituele leven. Haar aanhoudend pleidooi voor het onuitputtelijke verlangen, de onvermijdelijke tekorten en de universele dienstbaarheid is bijzonder indrukwekkend en bewijst hoe diep de vrouwenbeweging van de dertiende eeuw geworteld is in de traditie van Citeaux en Benedictus.

Hadewijch is geen troubadour maar een moedige, christelijke en taalvaardige vrouw, die voor haar kring en alle belangstellenden meesterlijk en geduldig de weg toont naar de spiritualiteit. Dit boek bevat niet alleen de achtergrondstudie voor de vertaling van Hadewijchs Liedboek, maar is tevens onmisbaar voor een zorgvuldige lectuur van haar Brieven.

Hadewijch
Liefdesliederen
Hadewijch (dertiende eeuw) schreef vijfenveertig mystieke liefdesliederen, die het hoogtepunt vormen van de Middelnederlandse lyrische poezie. Die liederen werden destijds uit het hoofd geleerd en gezongen, waarschijnlijk op melodieen die al bestonden, melodieen met wereldse Franse teksten. In haar gedichten past Hadewijch vormen en beelden uit dergelijke liefdesliedjes toe op het streven van de ziel naar opgang in de goddelijke liefde. De tweespalt die daardoor ontstaat snijdt door de ziel, ook bij de lezer (of toehoorder) van vandaag.

Hadewijch - Liederen
Hadewijch is de eerste vrouw in Europa geweest, in de woorden van Frits van Oostrom, die het heeft gewaagd de mystieke minne uit te zingen in pure liefdespoezie. Hadewijch is een gepassioneerd en compromisloos dichteres, haar poezie is complex, gevoelig en ingenieus, haar lied is direct en intens. In haar poetische minneliederen bezingt ze liefde en wanhoop, ellendige verlatenheid en het verlangen naar vereniging. Haar passie is voor lezer en luisteraar bijna fysiek voelbaar.

Haeberli, S.
Der judische Gelehrte im Mittelalter. Christliche Imaginationen zwischen Idealisierung und Damonisierung
Die Wahrnehmung judischer Gelehrter oszilliert im christlichen Mittelalter zwischen Extremen: Den einen galten gelehrte Juden als wahre Instanzen der Weisheit, andere betrachteten sie als Schwarzmagier und Teufelsdiener. Die Mediavistin Simone Haeberli untersucht, wie und aus welchem Anlass sich Kleriker iber judische Gelehrte ausserten, um sich anschliessend Figuren judischer Gelehrsamkeit in der fiktionalen Literatur des Mittelalters zuzuwenden. Vor dem Hintergrund der sozialen Umbruche des Spatmittelalters kann sie zeigen, dass die christliche Bewertung judischer Gelehrsamkeit jeweils eng mit der okonomischen Bedeutung der Juden in der mittelalterlichen Gesellschaft verknupft war.

The Art of Conversion. Christianity and Kabbalah in the Thirteenth Century
A discussion of Ramon Llull (circa 1232-1316), the Christian missionary, philosopher and mystic, his relations with Jewish contemporaries, and how he integrated Jewish mystical teachings (Kabbalah) into his thought system so as to persuade the Jews to convert. Issues dealt with include Llull's attitude towards the Jews, his knowledge of Kabbalah, his theories regarding the Trinity and Incarnation (the Art), and the impact of his ideas on the Jewish community. The book challenges conventional scholarly opinion regarding Christian knowledge of contemporary Jewish thought and questions the assumption that Christians did not know or use Kabbalah before the Renaissance. Further, it suggests that Llull was well aware of ongoing intellectual and religious controversies within the Jewish community, as well as being the first Christian to acknowledge and appreciate Kabbalah as a tool for conversion.

Gods filosofen. Hoe in de Middeleeuwen de basis werd gelegd voor de moderne wetenschap
'Middeleeuws' is synoniem geworden voor wreedheid en onbeschaafd gedrag. Toch waren Galileo, Newton en de Wetenschappelijke Revolutie niet mogelijk geweest zonder het werk van middeleeuwse geleerden en wetenschappers. In Gods filosofen veegt James Hannam de vloer aan met veel mythen over de Middeleeuwen. Hij toont aan dat men in de Middeleeuwen niet dacht dat de aarde plat was en dat Columbus ook niet 'bewees' dat het een bol was; de Inquisitie zette niemand op de bandstapel vanwege zijn wetenschappelijke inzichten en evenmin was Copernicus bang voor vervolging; geen enkele paus heeft geprobeerd het getal nul of anatomisch onderzoek op mensen te verbieden.

Gods filosofen is een eerbewijs aan de vergeten wetenschappelijke prestaties van de Middeleeuwen – aan de vooruitgang die dikwijls eerder dankzij dan ondanks de invloed van het christendom en de islam werd geboekt. Ook op technologisch gebied vonden doorslaggevende ontwikkelingen plaats: de bril en de mechanische klok werden bijvoorbeeld beide in het Europa van de dertiende eeuw uitgevonden. Een epische reis door zes eeuwen geschiedenis.

Harris, W.
Lebanon. A History, 600-2011
For most Americans, the civil war in Beirut is their sole point of connection with Lebanon. But Lebanon, a crossroads of major religious communities, has held a central place in the geopolitical significance of the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East for many centuries. In this book, William Harris synthesizes the history of Mount Lebanon and the surrounding areas within the modern Lebanese state--from the Islamic conquest of the Levant to modern times.

Harris relates the communities that characterize Mount Lebanon and its vicinity, while interpreting the evolution of modern Lebanon in its multi-communal context. He traces the consolidation of Lebanon's Christian, Muslim, and Islamic derived sects from their origins between the sixth and eleventh centuries. The identities of Maronite Christians, Twelver Shia Muslims, and Druze, the mountain communities, developed alongside assertions of local chiefs under external powers from the Umayyads to the Ottomans. The chiefs began interacting in a common arena when the Druze lord Fakhr al-Din Ma'n achieved domination of the mountain under the Ottomans in the early seventeenth century. The book offers a fresh perspective on subsequent trends, knitting together the interplay of the elite under the Sunni Muslim Shihab relatives of the Ma'ns after 1700 with demographic instability as Maronites overtook Shia as the largest community and expanded into Druze districts. By the 1840s many Maronites conceived the common arena as their patrimony. Maronite/Druze conflict ensued.

The book contends that Lebanon has not found a new equilibrium and has not transcended its sects. There is an uneasy duality: Shia have largely recovered the weight they possessed in the sixteenth century, but Christians, Sunnis, and Druze are two-thirds of the country.

Medieval Maps of the Holy Land
Neglected since the 1890s, the eight medieval regional maps of the Holy Land that are known to have existed are interesting, picturesque and mostly colourful. Many of the surviving copies and fragments are reproduced here for the first time, including three large maps that are among medieval Europe's finest cartographic monuments. Painstaking detective work on the manuscripts reveals much that is new: two maps lurking behind others drawn over them, a map changed into an erotic fantasy by a nineteenth-century forger, the origin of the mysterious grid pattern on some of the maps and much else. This beautifully produced large-format book is an important contribution to our understanding of medieval culture, early mapping and crusading Europe.

Herrin, J.
Byzantium. Het verrassende leven van een middeleeuws rijk
Byzantium is synoniem met macht, goud en exotisme. Heidendom en christelijke orthodoxie hadden er een plaats naast klassieke Griekse en Romeinse kennis. Eeuwenlang hebben de Byzantijnse legers als een buffer tegen de islamitische expansie in de vroege middeleeuwen gefungeerd, en, zo laat Herrin zien, Europa en de moderne westerse wereld in staat gesteld om zich te vormen. Veel boeken over Byzantium gaan over keizers en veldslagen. Judith Herrin heeft hier gekozen voor een thematische aanpak. In korte hoofdstukken behandelt zij onderwerpen als de bouw van de Haghia Sophia, wagenraces, de vork, kruistochten en literatuur. Ze toont de fascinerende wereld van de militaire geweldenaars en van asceten, eunuchen en courtisanes, en van de ambachtslieden die zijde, iconen, en mozaïeken maakten die wij nu verbinden met Byzantijnse kunst. Herrins elegante proza, haar diepgaande kennis en inzichten en haar bijzondere aanpak leveren een toegankelijk en fraai boek op, niet in de laatste plaats door de goedgekozen illustraties. Zo wordt Byzantium een boeiende en leerzame reis door de late oudheid en de middeleeuwen.

Herrin, J.
Byzantium. The Surprising Life of a Medieval Empire
For a thousand years, Byzantium was a byword for imperial power, gold and international trade. This extraordinary but now little known empire combined paganism and classical Greek and Roman learning with orthodox Christianity, and for centuries held back the armies of Islam, making possible the transition from antiquity to modern Europe. From the prominence of eunuchs to the secret of 'Greek fire', it was surprising, creative and audacious. Many long tomes have plodded through the emperors and battles of Byzantium, from the founding of its magnificent capital of Constantinople (today's Istanbul) in 330, to its fall to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. Judith Herrin takes a new approach. In a concise and compelling account, she focuses each short chapter around a theme such as a building (the great church of Hagia Sophia), luxury silks, iconoclasm, the fork, the crusades, or an individual, using them to take the reader on a journey from ancient to medieval times. She paints a magnificent panorama of the forces and beliefs at work during the millennium of Byzantium, and brings the experience of the Byzantine age to life in a beautifully written and exceptionally accessible work that is also an original contribution to historical scholarship.

Hildegard of Bingen
The Book of the Rewards of Life: Liber Vitae Meritorum
Hildegard of Bingen, the first German mystic, is one of the most influential women in European history. Born in 1098 in Bockelheim on the Nahe River, Hildegard had her first vision at the age of six, a phenomenon she would continue to experience the rest of her life. A woman of extraordinarily energetic and independent mind, Hildegard wrote profusely throughout her life as a prophet, a poet, a musical composer, a dramatist, a physician, and a political moralist. Indeed, her musical compositions have reached new heights in popularity, highlighting the revival of Gregorian chant currently sweeping the United States. Hildegard communicated with popes and princes, with people of both influence and humble status, always standing above the corruption, misery, and ruin - both spiritual and temporal - of the twelfth century. The second of Hildegard's three books of visions, The Book of the Rewards of Life (Liber Vitae Meritorum) is a study of the human weaknesses that separate us from God. Written with remarkable visual clarity, it stands as one the most subtle and fascinating works ever written on the relationship of various sins to their corresponding virtues. Divided into six parts, this compelling work focuses on our moral flaws, seemingly inherent in human consciousness, and the role of repentance and the virtues in restablishing our union with God. The first and only complete English translation of this important medieval work, The Book of the Rewards of Life is indeed a handbook of life.

Hoeberichts, Jan
Franciscus en de sultan. Mannen van vrede
In de vroege 13de eeuw was Europa in een felle strijd verwikkeld met de islam om de heerschappij over wat het 'Heilig Land' heette. In felle redes riepen de pausen de christenen op ten strijde te trekken tegen de 'Moren' en het 'wrede beest' te verslaan. Vele duizenden gingen op pad in opeenvolgende kruistochten, vele levens gingen verloren in wat wij tegenwoordig alleen maar als zinloos bloedvergieten zien. Maar niet iedereen liet zich door dit vijanddenken meeslepen. Er was een man die zich - te midden van vijandschap, onverdraagzaamheid en geweld tegenover de moslims - inzette voor christelijke waarden als vijandsliefde, zorg voor de ontheemde vreemdeling, solidariteit met alle mensen, ook de moslims, en vredelievendheid. Die 'man van vrede' was Franciscus van Assisi.

In 1219, de vijfde kruistocht was in volle gang, bracht hij, na twee eerdere mislukte pogingen, een bezoek aan sultan Malek al-Kamil van Egypte. De ontmoeting met de sultan, die helemaal geen wolf of wreed beest bleek te zijn, heeft een diepe indruk op Franciscus gemaakt en een grote invloed uitgeoefend op zijn verdere leven en spiritualiteit.

Deze fascinerende gebeurtenis in het leven van een fascinerend mens kan ons inspireren om niet de confrontatie te zoeken met de islam maar de dialoog. In het spoor van Franciscus, die zijn woorden omzette in daden van vrede en verzoening, van solidariteit en dienstbaarheid. En die een wereldomvattende zuster- en broederschap van alle mensen tot stand wilde brengen, ongeacht alle verschillen in afkomst, geloof en cultuur. Van Jan Hoeberichts is bijna twintig jaar geleden het boek Franciscus en de islam verschenen. In het meer toegankelijke Franciscus en de sultan. Mannen van vrede heeft hij allerlei nieuwe gezichtspunten en inzichten verwerkt. Zo gaat hij uitvoeriger in op de ontwikkeling die Franciscus na zijn terugkeer in Italie doormaakte.

Holdenried, A.
The Sibyl and Her Scribes. Manuscripts and Interpretation of the Latin Sibylla Tiburtina c. 1050-1500
The Sibylla Tiburtina is a Latin prophecy attributed to a prophetess from classical antiquity. It concludes with an account of the End of History, involving the coming of the Antichrist and his battle with a Last World Emperor. Approximately 100 manuscripts, written between the mid-11th and the 16th centuries, survive which testify to the Tiburtina's immense popularity in the medieval West; as such the Tiburtina is a key text for understanding medieval apocalypticism and occupies an important place in the intellectual history of the Middle Ages. However, studies of the manuscripts and the history of the text have been largely neglected, in comparison with other similar works, so little is currently known about who copied and read the prophecy. Dr Holdenried's research fills this gap. This study is based on an examination of all surviving manuscripts and includes an analysis of the textual material which accompanies the Tiburtina, a survey of titles and annotations, as well as research on variant texts (including several hitherto unknown). Modern historiography regards the Tiburtina solely as a vehicle for expressing contemporary political concerns triggered by crises thought to herald the End of the World. This book provides a much more varied picture and offers a new approach to the Tiburtina by placing it, for the first time, in the context of medieval traditions which saw Sibylline prophecy as independent, non-Christian evidence of Christ's life and as confirmation of His divinity. As is shown, these traditions had a major impact on the reception of the Tiburtina. The book concludes with a repertory of the manuscripts, together with brief outlines of individual textual traditions as represented in groups of manuscripts, which will constitute a valuable reference source for other scholars

Holmes , Megan
The Miraculous Image in Renaissance Florence
In Renaissance Florence, certain paintings and sculptures of the Virgin Mary and Christ were believed to have extraordinary efficacy in activating potent sacred intercession. Cults sprung up around these 'miraculous images' in the city and surrounding countryside beginning in the late 13th century. In The Miraculous Image in Renaissance Florence, Megan Holmes questions what distinguished these paintings and sculptures from other similar sacred images, looking closely at their material and formal properties, the process of enshrinement, and the foundation legends and miracles associated with specific images. Whereas some of the images presented in this fascinating book are well known, such as Bernardo Daddi's Madonna of Orsanmichele, many others have been little studied until now. Holmes's efforts center on the recovery and contextualization of these revered images, reintegrating them and their related cults into an art-historical account of the period. By challenging prevailing views and offering a reassessment of the Renaissance, this generously illustrated and comprehensive survey makes a significant contribution to the field.

Megan Holmes is professor of the history of art at the University of Michigan.

Housley, N. (ed)
Knighthoods of Christ. Essays on the History of the Crusades and the Knights Templar, Presented to Malcolm Barber
During the Central Middle Ages Catholics had the opportunity to take part in Holy War in the Latin East in two different but related ways, by taking the Cross and by entering the Order of the Temple. Both crusaders and Knights Templar were dubbed by contemporary panegyrists milites Christi, knights engaged in combat for the cause of Christ. On numerous battlefields in the Middle East crusaders and Templars fought side by side. By the late thirteenth century both modes of Holy War faced critical situations. Crusading failed to save the mainland states of Palestine and Syria from Muslim conquest in 1291, while the Knights Templar entered a period of internal demoralisation and external attack that culminated in the suppression of their Order in 1312. This collection of essays by distinguished historians of the Crusades and the Order of the Temple covers the whole span of their historical evolution and offers numerous insights into the ideologies, practicalities and ramifications of Christian Holy War in the Middle Ages

Hughes, J.
Rise of Alchemy in Fourteenth-Century England: Plantagenet Kings and the Search for the Philosopher's Stone
This is the first book to explore the importance of alchemy and its links to the occult in the period between 1320 and 1400. Alchemists did more than try to transmute base metals into gold: they studied planetary influences on metals and people, refined plants and minerals in the search for medicines and advocated the regeneration of matter and spirit.

This book illustrates how this new branch of thought became increasingly popular as the practical and theoretical knowledge of alchemists spread throughout England. Adopted by those in court and the circles of nobility for their own physical and spiritual needs, it was adapted for the diagnosis and therapeutic treatment of the illnesses of the body politic and its head, the king. This is the first work to synthesize all aspects of alchemy and show its contribution to intellectual, social and political life in the fourteenth century.

Hughes explores a rich body of manuscripts to reveal the daily routines of the alchemist and his imaginative mindscape, and considers the contribution of alchemy to the vernacular culture and political debate, leading to a reassessment of the intellectual life of the middle ages.

Eeuwige Rust Op De Donderberg. Een Groot Vroegmiddeleeuws Grafveld Bij Rhenen
Het rijengrafveld op de Donderberg bij Rhenen (provincie Utrecht) is de grootste, langst gebruikte en mogelijk rijkste vroegmiddeleeuwse begraafplaats van Nederland. Het bevatte ruim 1100 graven uit de vierde tot en met achtste eeuw na Chr.: circa 300 crematies, 820 lijkbegravingen en 14 paardengraven. Uit de grafkuilen zijn meer dan 3000 voorwerpen geborgen, die zich nu in het Rijksmuseum van Oudheden te Leiden bevinden. Ze vormen opvallend rijke collecties sieraden, kralen, glaswerk, keramiek (meer dan 850 stuks), wapens, werktuigen en hergebruikt Romeins materiaal.

Landschappelijk bevindt het grafveld zich op de oostelijke punt van een stuwwal, die ook andere vroegmiddeleeuwse vondsten opleverde, waaronder een goudschat en een muntschat, maar ook rijke prehistorische graven. Op de Donderberg hebben mensen hun doden op hetzelfde terrein en op min of meer dezelfde wijze begraven tussen circa 375 en 750 na Chr., omgerekend zo'n twintig generaties lang. Deze periode omvat de overgang van de Laat-Romeinse tijd naar die van Friezen, Franken, Saksen en de introductie van het christendom. Maar is er iets van die 'etiketten' terug te vinden in de begravingen?

Het Rhenense grafveld werd in het voorjaar van 1951 opgegraven. Hoewel wetenschappers, pers en publiek direct het belang van de vondst inzagen, bleef de Donderberg ongepubliceerd. Dit boekje is het resultaat van het Odyssee-project 'Reviving Rhenen', samen met een wetenschappelijke catalogus en een tentoonstelling in Museum Het Rondeel in Rhenen. Samen brengen ze dit omvangrijke vroegmiddeleeuwse complex over het voetlicht, precies zestig jaar na de ontdekking ervan.

Huizinga, J.
Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen, studie over levens- en gedachtenvormen der veertiende en vijftiende eeuw in Frankrijk en de Nederlanden
Er is geen boek in de Nederlandse cultuurgeschiedenis dat zo spraakmakend is geweest als Herfsttij der middeleeuwen. Het is een synthese van beeldende kunst en literaire bronnen, van de verstilde sfeer van de Vlaamse primitieven en de klacht om het bestaan in het werk van de contemporaine dichters en schrijvers - dit alles tegen de achtergrond van schitterende feesten en van pompeuze praal. Erudiet en beeldend beschrijft Johan Huizinga in de vurige kleuren van de herfst de teloorgang van de laat-middeleeuwse beschaving. Naast een kaart van de Bourgondische Nederlanden, een tijdtafel, een stamboom van het Bourgondische vorstenhuis en een nawoord, bevat deze uitgave van Herfsttij der middeleeuwen bovendien honderden afbeeldingen, grotendeels in kleur, van kunstwerken en manuscripten die in de tekst door Huizinga worden genoemd.

Anchoritism in the Middle Ages.Texts and Traditions
This volume explores medieval anchoritism (the life of a solitary religious recluse) from a variety of perspectives. The individual essays conceive anchoritism in broadly interpretive categories: challenging perceived notions of the very concept of anchoritic 'rule' and guidance; studying the interaction between language and linguistic forms; addressing the connection between anchoritism and other forms of solitude (particularly in European tales of sanctity); and exploring the influence of anchoritic literature on lay devotion. As a whole, the volume illuminates the richness and fluidity of anchoritic texts and contexts and shows how anchoritism pervaded the spirituality of the Middle Ages, for lay and religious alike. It moves through both space and time, ranging from the third century to the sixteenth, from England to the Continent and back.

Magnificence and the Sublime in Medieval Aesthetics. Art, Architecture, Literature, Music
Lively and deeply productive discussions have focused on the topics of "magnificence" and "the sublime" in the art and literature of antiquity, the Renaissance, and the ages following. They have engaged major figures from Ernst Gombrich to Theodore Adorno to Jean-Francois Lyotard. Yet, these discussions have virtually bypassed the Middle Ages. The essays in "Magnificence and the Sublime in Medieval Aesthetics" reclaim a position for the medieval period in the theoretical discussion of art, architecture, music, and literature. These analyses of an aesthetic of grandeur show an artistic practice in the Middle Ages that strove for and celebrated grand effects.

Jansen, H.
Op, op, ten strijde, Jeruzalem bevrijden! Het ware verhaal van de kruisvaarders
Tussen 1095 en 1291 gingen honderdduizenden vrome westerlingen - met name mannen maar ook vrouwen - op reis naar Jeruzalem: de plaats waar Jezus van Nazareth is gekruisigd. Het doel van deze gewapende pelgrimages was orde op zaken te stellen in de Heilige Stad en te voorkomen dat daar (nog langer) islamitische krijgsheren de dienst uitmaakten. Deze militaire operaties, de kruistochten, waren hachelijke ondernemingen, vaak gedoemd tot mislukken. Maar er werden ook successen geboekt. Er heeft bijna tweehonderd jaar een christelijk Koninkrijk Jeruzalem bestaan. De moderne mens heeft zich van alles over de kruistochten laten wijsmaken, en kijkt doorgaans met een mengeling van verwondering en afschuw naar deze episode uit 'onze' geschiedenis. De kruistochten worden zelden adequaat beschreven. Mystificaties en politieke vooroordelen vertroebelen het beeld dat het Westen van deze expedities heeft.

In Op, op, ten strijde, Jeruzalem bevrijden! weet Hans Jansen de gangbare politiek correcte visie op de kruisvaarders te nuanceren. Hij baseert zich daarbij op een scala aan bronnen, waaronder Hebreeuwse en Arabische teksten. Hij onderwerpt de klassieke verslagen aan een kritische blik en komt tot verrassende observaties. In een beschouwend hoofdstuk laat de auteur zien dat de strijd van de kruisvaarders van weleer - historisch gezien - het begin was van de hedendaagse wereldomvattende 'oorlog' tegen militante jihadisten.

Dankzij de alom geprezen schrijfstijl van Jansen is dit boek niet alleen een verrassend avonturenepos met een humoristische ondertoon. Het is ook zijn eerste boek dat kan worden gekwalificeerd als 'romantisch'.

Jordan, W.C.
A Tale of Two Monasteries. Westminster and Saint-Denis in the Thirteenth Century
A Tale of Two Monasteries takes an unprecedented look at one of the great rivalries of the Middle Ages and offers it as a revealing lens through which to view the intertwined histories of medieval England and France. This is the first book to systematically compare Westminster Abbey and the abbey of Saint-Denis--two of the most important ecclesiastical institutions of the thirteenth century--and to do so through the lives and competing careers of the two men who ruled them, Richard de Ware of Westminster and Mathieu de Vendme of Saint-Denis. Esteemed historian William Jordan weaves a breathtaking narrative of the social, cultural, and political history of the period. It was an age of rebellion and crusades, of artistic and architectural innovation, of unprecedented political reform, and of frustrating international diplomacy--and Richard and Mathieu, in one way or another, played important roles in all these developments. Jordan traces their rise from obscure backgrounds to the highest ranks of political authority, Abbot Richard becoming royal treasurer of England, and Abbot Mathieu twice serving as a regent of France during the crusades. By enabling us to understand the complex relationships the abbots and their rival institutions shared with each other and with the kings and social networks that supported and exploited them, A Tale of Two Monasteries paints a vivid portrait of medieval society and politics, and of the ambitious men who influenced them so profoundly.

Hermit`s Cookbook. Monks, Food & Fasting in the Middle Ages
How did medieval hermits survive on their self-denying diet? What did they eat, and how did unethical monks get around the rules? The Egyptian hermit Onuphrios was said to have lived entirely on dates, and perhaps the most famous of all hermits, John the Baptist, on locusts and wild honey. Was it really possible to sustain life on so little food? The history of monasticism is defined by the fierce and passionate abandonment of the ordinary comforts of life, the most striking being food and drink. "A Hermit's Cookbook" opens with stories and penportraits of the Desert Fathers of early Christianity and their followers who were ascetic solitaries, hermits and pillar-dwellers. It proceeds to explore how the ideals of the desert fathers were revived in both the Byzantine and western traditions, looking at the cultivation of food in monasteries, eating and cooking, and why hunting animals was rejected by any self-respecting hermit. Full of rich anecdotes, and including recipes for basic monk's stew and bread soup - and many others - this is a fascinating story of hermits, monks, food and fasting in the Middle Ages

De lange zevende eeuw, of hoe christendom en islam de macht verdeelden
Het christendom was aan het eind van de vierde eeuw de staatsgodsdienst van het Romeinse rijk geworden. De andere godsdiensten waren verboden, met alleen nog een gedoogstatus voor de joodse godsdienst. Het christendom bleef de heersende godsdienst rond de Middellandse Zee ook toen later de westelijke helft van het Romeinse rijk verbrokkelde, tot in de zevende eeuw volken met een andere godsdienst aan de kusten verschenen. De Perzen werden nog verslagen, de Arabieren niet.

De lange zevende eeuw, of hoe christendom en islam de macht verdeelden laat zien hoe het christelijke gemenebest rond de Middellandse Zee, ontstaan in de vierde eeuw, uiteenviel tussen 600 en 750. In 600 leek het christendom nog overal onbedreigd en voor altijd de staatsgodsdienst maar in 750 was de zee verdeeld tussen christendom en islam, bijna zoals die tegenwoordig is verdeeld. Staat en godsdienst bleven met elkaar vervlochten, maar naast de christelijke staten in het noorden was nu in het zuiden de islam de staatsgodsdienst. In het noordwesten van het oude Romeinse rijk begonnen de mensen hun deel van de wereld al voorzichtig 'Europa' te noemen.

Karnes, M.
Imagination, Meditation & Cognition in the Middle Ages
"Imagination, Meditation, and Cognition in the Middle Ages", Michelle Karnes revises the history of medieval imagination with a detailed analysis of its role in the period's meditations and theories of cognition. Karnes here understands imagination in its technical, philosophical sense, taking her cue from Bonaventure, the thirteenth-century scholastic theologian and philosopher who provided the first sustained account of how the philosophical imagination could be transformed into a devotional one. Karnes examines Bonaventure's meditational works, "the Meditationes vitae Christi", "the Stimulis amoris", "Piers Plowman", and Nicholas Love's "Myrrour", among others, and argues that the cognitive importance that imagination enjoyed in scholastic philosophy informed its importance in medieval meditations on the life of Christ. Emphasizing the cognitive significance of both imagination and the meditations that relied on it, she revises a long-standing association of imagination with the Middle Ages. In her account, imagination was not simply an object of suspicion but also a crucial intellectual, spiritual, and literary resource that exercised considerable authority.

Keizer, Gerrit Jan
De geheimen van Hildegard von Bingen
In de miniatuur 'Die Seele und ihr Zelt' van Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) stopt een diabolische figuur een bruine paddenstoel in een schaal met kazen. Volgens de Duitse kunsthistorica Muller-Ebeling verwijst dit naar de mycofobie of angst voor alles wat met paddenstoelen te maken heeft, die naar haar zeggen in de middeleeuwen opkwam. Volgens de auteur gaat zij echter volledig voorbij aan de werkelijke betekenis van deze bruine paddenstoel en van alle andere symbolen in Hildegards miniaturen die te maken hebben met het ceremonieel gebruik en de verering van de vliegenzwam.

Gerrit Jan Keizer heeft een uitgebreide studie gemaakt van de symbolen en verwijzingen die zij in haar teksten en miniaturen gebruikt. Zijn analyse maakt het aannemelijk, dat haar inspiratie mede voortkomt uit de hallucinaties of 'visioenen' en mystieke ervaringen of 'openbaringen' die zij met entheogenen opriep. Aan de hand van de verhulde symboliek laat hij zien welk effect het gebruik van hallucinogene paddenstoelen en planten - zoals doornappel, bilzekruid en alruin - op haar psyche, persoonlijkheids- en seksuele ontwikkeling had. Tevens diagnosticeert en verklaart Keizer de traumatische ervaringen uit haar kindertijd en de daaruit voortvloeiende afwijkende persoonlijkheidsontwikkeling. Aan de orde komen ook haar intieme (seksuele) relaties met haar leermeesteres Jutta von Sponheim en met Richardis von Stade, een jonge non die samen met de Benedictijner monnik Volmar Hildegards secretaris was. Tot slot wordt haar positie in de katholieke kerk bij leven, kort voor en (lang) na haar dood becommentarieerd en in tijdsperspectief geplaatst.

Klinisch psycholoog en mycoloog Gerrit Jan Keizer doet al vele jaren onderzoek naar planten en paddenstoelen die psychoactieve stoffen bevatten en de invloed die het gebruik ervan heeft op de ontwikkeling van de wereldgodsdiensten, in het bijzonder van het vroegchristelijke geloof.

Judaism and Christian Art: Aesthetic Anxieties from the Catacombs to Colonialism
Christian cultures across the centuries have invoked Judaism in order to debate, represent, and contain the dangers presented by the sensual nature of art. By engaging Judaism, both real and imagined, they explored and expanded the perils and possibilities for Christian representation of the material world. The thirteen essays in Judaism and Christian Art reveal that Christian art has always defined itself through the figures of Judaism that it produces. From its beginnings, Christianity confronted a host of questions about visual representation. Should Christians make art, or does attention to the beautiful works of human hands constitute a misplaced emphasis on the things of this world or, worse, a form of idolatry ("Thou shalt make no graven image")? And if art is allowed, upon what styles, motifs, and symbols should it draw? Christian artists, theologians, and philosophers answered these questions and many others by thinking about and representing the relationship of Christianity to Judaism. This volume is the first dedicated to the long history, from the catacombs to colonialism but with special emphasis on the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, of the ways in which Christian art deployed cohorts of "Jews"-more figurative than real-in order to conquer, defend, and explore its own territory.

Kieckhefer, R.
Magic in the Middle Ages, 2nd Revised edition
How was magic practised in medieval times? How did it relate to the diverse beliefs and practices that characterised this fascinating period? In Magic in the Middle Ages Richard Kieckhefer surveys the growth and development of magic in medieval times. He examines its relation to religion, science, philosophy, art, literature and politics before introducing us to the different types of magic that were used, the kinds of people who practised magic, and the reasoning behind their beliefs. In addition, he shows how magic served as a point of contact between the popular and elite classes, how the reality of magical beliefs is reflected in the fiction of medieval literature, and how the persecution of magic and witchcraft led to changes in the law. This 2000 book places magic at the crossroads of medieval culture, shedding light on many other aspects of life in the middle ages.

Kilcullen, J.
William of Ockham: Dialogus Part 2 Part 3, Tract 1
William of Ockham was a medieval English philosopher and theologian (he was born about 1285, perhaps as late as 1288, and died in 1347 or 1348). In 1328 Ockham turned away from 'pure' philosophy and theology to polemic. From that year until the end of his life he worked to overthrow what he saw as the tyranny of Pope John XXII (1316-1334) and of his successors Popes Benedict XII (1334-1342) and Clement VI (1342-1352). This campaign led him into questions of ecclesiology (the study of the nature and structure of the Christian Church, e.g. of the functions and powers of the pope) and political philosophy. The Dialogus purports to be a transcript made by a mature student of lengthy discussions between himself and a university master about the various opinions of the learned on the matters disputed between John XXII and the dissident Franciscans. The student is usually the initiator; he chooses the topics, asks most of the questions and decides when he has heard enough. The master is, so to speak, an expert witness whom the student examines. This volume publishes an edition of two elements of the Dialogus. Part 2 of the Dialogus is not in dialogue form and may not to be the work of Ockham himself. Part 3 is divided into two tracts. Tract 1, which is reproduced in this volume, is on the power of the Pope and clergy. Liberal thinking in modern times builds on certain earlier ancient and medieval political ideas, which Ockham reasserted, defended and helped to perpetuate. Thus there are elements in his ecclesiology and political philosophy that anticipate the views of Locke, Mill, and other modern liberals.

Kramer, Bernadette
Een lekenboek in woord en beeld: de spegel der minschliken zalicheid
Al snel nadat het Speculum humanae salvationis werd geschreven, rond 1300, behoorde het tot de standaardwerken met typologische verklaring van de Bijbel. De verhalen uit het leven van Maria en Christus worden telkens geplaatst tegenover drie oudtestamentische verhalen om te laten zien hoe de komst van Christus was voorspeld in het Oude Testament. De tekst heeft een rijk illustratieprogramma met vier afbeeldingen per hoofdstuk en functioneerde als inspiratiebron voor predikers.

In haar boek schetst Bernadette Kramer hoe het Speculum humanae salvationis in de vijftiende eeuw kon worden gebruikt door een ander publiek. Hierbij staat de Spegel der minschliken zalicheid centraal (ms. GkS 79, KB Kopenhagen). Een analyse van de iconografische veranderingen in de illustraties toont aan, dat dit in het Brugse Goudranken-atelier vervaardigde handschrift is afgestemd op persoonlijke catechese en devotie van leken. Tekst, illustraties en woord-beeldrelaties beinvloeden gezamenlijk de performatieve leeservaring.

Kruif, A. C. de
Miraculeus bewaard. Middeleeuwse Utrechtse relieken op reis: de schat van de oud-katholieke Gertrudiskathedraal
Tijdens de reformatie kreeg de katholieke religie forse aanvallen te verduren; kerkgebouwen werden ingenomen en kerkschatten werden geroofd of vernietigd. De katholieken zetten zich in om hun tastbare stukjes heiligheid op aarde veilig te stellen. Ze werden geregeld verplaatst en verborgen en zo werden ook relieken toevertrouwd aan de zorg van de, inmiddels oud-katholieke, Gertrudisparochie in Utrecht.

Tot nog toe was de omvang en aard van deze verborgen verzameling relieken vrijwel onbekend. Auteur Anique de Kruijf inventariseerde alle ruim 1700 objecten en reconstrueerde hun herkomst en redding. De collectie bevat materiaal van talloze heiligen en kent een grote varieteit in ouderdom en vorm. De reliekschat overtrof alle verwachtingen, zowel in omvang en samenstelling als in historisch belang. Het mag met recht een mirakel heten dat zoveel kostbare middeleeuwse relieken de tijd van de reformatie hebben overleefd.

Kues, Nikolaus von / Cusanus
Predigten in deutscher Ubersetzung, Bd. 2: Sermones XXVII-CXXI
Mit seinen Predigten hat Nikolaus von Kues ein grossartiges Zeugnis christlicher Theologie hinterlassen. In verschiedener Hinsicht nimmt sein Predigtwerk eine Sonderstellung ein: An Sachgehalt den Predigten Eckharts vergleichbar, stellen die Predigten ein einzigartiges Dokument ihrer Zeit dar. Zugleich bieten sie einen eigenen, noch vielfach unterschatzten Zugang zu Nikolaus von Kues, da sie an spekulativer Kraft dem philosophisch-theologischen Werk nicht nachstehen, im Gegenteil, oft durch die Verwendung kuhner Bilder und klarer sprachlicher Pragungen diesem uberlegen sind. Die fast 300 Predigten - mehr als die Halfte stammen aus der Zeit, als Cusanus Bischof in Brixen war - eroffnen daruber hinaus ein breites Themen-spektrum: Gottesbild, Anthropologie, Christologie, Schopfung, Sakramenten-verstandnis, aber auch philosophische Spekulationen zur Erkenntnistheorie, Metaphysik, Zeitphilosophie, Ethik oder Asthetik u.a. Bislang sind nur wenige Predigten ubersetzt. Mit der vorliegenden Ausgabe wird erstmals das gesamte Predigtwerk des Nikolaus von Kues in deutscher Ubersetzung zuganglich sein. Zudem geht jeder Predigt eine knappe Einleitung voraus: Angabe der kritischen Edition, Gliederung der Predigt und Hinweise auf Sekundarliteratur geben dem Benutzer die notigen Hilfsmittel zu einer weiteren Beschaftigung an die Hand. Ferner werden direkte Zitate, die Cusanus verwendet, nachgewiesen; Erlauterungen zum Text werden, soweit sie fur das Verstandnis notwendig sind, gegeben.

Nederland in de Middeleeuwen. De canon van ons middeleeuws verleden
Deze canon presenteert onze middeleeuwse geschiedenis op toegankelijke wijze voor een breed publiek middels 50 vensters. Bij de keuze van deze vensters spelen zowel de traditie als nieuwe inzichten een rol. De lezer zoekt niet vergeefs naar overbekende feiten als de moord op Floris V, maar verneemt ook over plattelandsleven, ridderideaal en kloosterwezen, overzeese handel, klimaatontwikkeling, ketters en bonte volkscultuur. Een evenredige geografische spreiding is nagestreefd, waarbij alle gewesten aan bod komen. De uitgave toont hoe een drassige uithoek van het Romeinse Rijk zich tussen ca. 500 en 1500 ontwikkelde tot een veelzijdig samenstel van graafschappen, hertogdommen en heerlijkheden, agrarische en handelsgemeenschappen, steden en dorpen, op zand, veen en klei, langs de rivieren en de Noordzeekust. Hoe er langzaam eenheidsgevoel ontstond en hoe dit besef steeds ondergraven werd door vaak bloedige strijd tussen lokale en regionale belangen, standen en klassen

Lahey, S. E.
John Wyclif
John Wyclif (d.1384) has too frequently been described as "Morning Star of the Reformation" and only recently begun to be studied as a fourteenth-century English philosopher and theologian. This work draws on recent scholarship situating Wyclif in his fourteenth-century milieu to present a survey of his thought and writings as a coherent theological position arising from Oxford's "Golden Age" of theology. Lahey argues that many of Wyclif's best known critiques of the fourteenth-century Church arise from his philosophical commitment to an Augustinian realism evocative of the thought of Robert Grosseteste and Anselm of Canterbury. This realism is comprehensible in terms of Wyclif's sustained focus on semantics and the properties of terms and propositions, a "linguistic turn" characterizing post-Ockham philosophical theology. Arising from this propositional realism is a strong emphasis on the place of Scripture in both formal and applied theology, which was the starting point for many of Wyclif's quarrels with the ecclesiastical status quo in late fourteenth-century England. This survey takes into account both Wyclif's earlier, philosophical works and his later works, including sermons and Scripture commentary. Wyclif's belief that Scripture is the eternal and perfect divine word, the paradigm of human discourse and the definitive embodiment of truth in creation is central to an understanding of the ties he believes relate theoretical and practical philosophy to theology. This connection links Wyclif's interest in the propositional structure of reality to his realism, his hermeneutic program, and to his agenda for reform of the Church.

Women, Family and Society in Byzantium
Angeliki Laiou (1941-2008), one of the leading Byzantinists of her generation, broke new ground in the study of the social and economic history of the Byzantine Empire. Women, Family and Society in Byzantium, the first of three volumes to be published posthumously in the Variorum Collected Studies Series, brings together eight articles published between 1993 and 2009. Demonstrating Professor Laiou's characteristic attention to the relationship between ideology and social practice, the first five articles concern the status of women as evidenced through legal, narrative, hagiographical, and archival sources, while the final three investigate conceptions of law and justice, the vocabulary and typology of peasant rebellions, and the and the form and evolution of political agreements in Byzantine society.

Latowsky, Anne A.
Emperor of the World: Charlemagne and the Construction of Imperial Authority, 800-1229
Charlemagne never traveled farther east than Italy, but by the mid-tenth century a story had begun to circulate about the friendly alliances that the emperor had forged while visiting Jerusalem and Constantinople. This story gained wide currency throughout the Middle Ages, appearing frequently in chronicles, histories, imperial decrees, and hagiographies - even in stained -glass windows and vernacular verse and prose. In Emperor of the World, Anne A. Latowsky traces the curious history of this myth, revealing how the memory of the Frankish Emperor was manipulated to shape the institutions of kingship and empire in the High Middle Ages.

The legend incorporates apocalyptic themes such as the succession of world monarchies at the End of Days and the prophecy of the Last Roman Emperor. Charlemagne's apocryphal journey to the East increasingly resembled the eschatological final journey of the Last Emperor, who was expected to end his reign in Jerusalem after reuniting the Roman Empire prior to the Last Judgment. Instead of relinquishing his imperial dignity and handing the rule of a united Christendom over to God as predicted, this Charlemagne returns to the West to commence his reign. Latowsky finds that the writers who incorporated this legend did so to support, or in certain cases to criticize, the imperial pretentions of the regimes under which they wrote. New versions of the myth would resurface at times of transition and during periods marked by strong assertions of Roman-style imperial authority and conflict with the papacy, most notably during the reigns of Henry IV and Frederick Barbarossa. Latowsky removes Charlemagne's encounters with the East from their long-presumed Crusading context and shows how a story that began as a rhetorical commonplace of imperial praise evolved over the centuries as an expression of Christian Roman universalism.

Lawrence, C.H.
The Friars. The Impact of the Mendicant Orders on Medieval Society
The mendicant friars of the Franciscan and Dominican orders played a unique and important role in medieval society. In the early thirteenth century, the Church was being challenged by a confident new secular culture, associated with the growth of towns, the rise of literature and articulate laity, the development of new sciences and the creation of the first universities. The mendicant orders which developed around the charismatic figures of Saint Francis of Assisi (founder of the Franciscans) and Saint Dominic of Osma (founder of the Dominicans) confronted this challenge by encouraging preachers to go out into the world to do God's work, rather than retiring into enclosed monasteries. C.H. Lawrence here analyses the origins and growth of these orders, as well as the impact which they had upon the medieval world - in the areas of politics and education as well as religion. His study is essential reading for all scholars and students of medieval history.

Lawrence-Mathers, A.
The True History of Merlin the Magician
Merlin the Magician has remained an enthralling and curious individual since the idea was first invented in the twelfth century in the pages of Geoffrey of Monmouth's "History of the Kings of Britain". But although the Merlin of literature and Arthurian myth is well known, Merlin's historical impact and his relation to medieval magic are less familiar.

this book Anne Lawrence-Mathers explores just who he was thought to be and what he has meant to Britain. The twelfth-century Merlin was no folk soothsayer: he was a learned figure at the cutting edge of medieval science and adept in astrology, cosmology, prophecy and natural magic, as well as being a seer and proto alchemist. He was a convincing and powerful figure and his famed prophecies helped to add credibility to the 'long lost' history of Britain, first revealed here to a European public. Merlin's prophecies reassuringly foretold Britain's path, establishing an ancient ancestral line and linking biblical prediction with more recent times. Merlin helped to place British history within world history. Lawrence-Mathers also explores the meaning of Merlin's magic across the centuries, arguing that he embodied ancient Christian and pagan magical traditions, recreated for a medieval court and adapted to fit a new moral climate. Linking Merlin's perceived reality and power with the culture of the Middle Ages, this remarkable book reveals the true impact of the most famous magician of all time.

Secrets and Knowledge in Medicine and Science, 1500-1800
Secrets played a central role in transformations in medical and scientific knowledge in early modern Europe. As a new fascination with novelty began to take hold from the late fifteenth century, Europeans thirsted for previously unknown details about the natural world: new plants, animals, and other objects from nature, new recipes for medical and alchemical procedures, new knowledge about the human body, and new facts about the way nature worked. These 'secrets' became popular items of commerce and trade, as the quest for new and exclusive bits of information met the vibrant early modern marketplace. Whether disclosed widely in print or kept more circumspect in manuscripts, secrets helped drive an expanding interest in acquiring knowledge throughout early modern Europe.

Bringing together international scholars, this volume provides a pan-European and interdisciplinary overview on the topic. Each essay offers significant new interpretations of the role played by secrets in their area of specialization. Chapters address key themes in early modern history and the history of medicine, science and technology including: the possession, circulation and exchange of secret knowledge across Europe; alchemical secrets and laboratory processes; patronage and the upper-class market for secrets; medical secrets and the emerging market for proprietary medicines; secrets and cosmetics; secrets and the body and finally gender and secrets.

Lester, A.E.
Creating Cistercian Nuns. The Women's Religious Movement and Its Reform in Thirteenth-century Champagne
In Creating Cistercian Nuns, Anne E. Lester addresses a central issue in the history of the medieval church: the role of women in the rise of the religious reform movement of the thirteenth century. Focusing on the county of Champagne in France, Lester reconstructs the history of the women's religious movement and its institutionalization within the Cistercian order. The common picture of the early Cistercian order is that it was unreceptive to religious women. Male Cistercian leaders often avoided institutional oversight of communities of nuns, preferring instead to cultivate informal relationships of spiritual advice and guidance with religious women. As a result, scholars believed that women who wished to live a life of service and poverty were more likely to join one of the other reforming orders rather than the Cistercians. As Lester shows, however, this picture is deeply flawed. Between 1220 and 1240 the Cistercian order incorporated small independent communities of religious women in unprecedented numbers. Moreover, the order not only accommodated women but also responded to their interpretations of apostolic piety, even as it defined and determined what constituted Cistercian nuns in terms of dress, privileges, and liturgical practice.

The Chronicle and Historical Notes of Bernard Itier
Expected nov. 2012

Bernard Itier (1163-1225) was head librarian of the monastery of Saint-Martial at Limoges. As such he had free access to the books and made notations in many of them. The largest collection of these notes comprises his chronicle: a history of the world from Creation until his own time which, in part to conserve parchment, Bernard entered in the margins of two earlier codices he had appropriated for the purpose. The work includes a 'retrospective' section, relative to the past, and a 'contemporaneous' section, similar to a journal, in which Bernard recorded current or recent events which struck his interest. His record is highly idiosyncratic, reflecting the priorities of a monk who viewed the world from, and largely in relation to, his monastery. Accordingly, despite what modern historians consider to have been momentous changes in the kingdoms and the church at the time, what most interested Bernard were the affairs of his abbey, local events, miracles or other prodigies, and instances of atypical violence. In his outlook, the kings and pope were outsiders, and sometimes threatening. He does not mention the conquests of Philip Augustus, and records with almost palpable relief the death of Innocent III, who he had feared would impose an unwelcome choice of abbot on his monastery. Andrew Lewis provides, in Bernard's Latin and in English translation, the only complete text of Bernard's chronicle ever published, and the fullest edition of his historical notes from other manuscripts which complement the chronicle.

The Secrets of Women in Middle Dutch, a bilingual edition of der vrouwen heimelijcheit in Ghent University Library Ms 444
A poet, head over heels in love with a charming lady, writes a book at her request on intimate matters concerning women. It is a delicate undertaking, not only because it is a relatively unknown subject for him, but also because he does not want her to be angry with him when she reads about these highly personal matters. This is how Der vrouwen heimelijcheit [The Secrets of Women] begins. An intriguing characteristic of this fifteenth-century text is the way in which the author has alternated scientific knowledge of the medieval artes corpus with a personal love complaint. He interrupts his gynaecological exposition in twenty-odd places to express his love in lyrical terms. To make the text available for an international readership, this publication provides a cultural historical introduction and presents the Middle Dutch Secrets of Women together with an English translation.

Sacred History. Uses of the Christian Past in the Renaissance World
This volume provides the first geographically broad, comparative survey of early modern 'sacred history', or writing on the history of the Christian Church, its leaders and saints, and its institutional and doctrinal developments, in the two centuries from c. 1450-1650. With deep medieval roots, ecclesiastical history was generally a conservative enterprise, often serving to reinforce confessional, national, regional, dynastic, or local identities. But writers of sacred history innovated in research methods and in techniques of scholarly production, especially after the advent of print. The demand for sacred history was particularly acute in the various movements for religious reform, in both Catholic and Protestant traditions. After the Renaissance, many writers sought to apply humanist critical principles to writing about the church, but the sceptical thrust of humanist historiography threatened to undermine many ecclesiastical traditions, and religious historians often had to wrestle with tensions between criticism and piety.

Thirteen thematic chapters examine the influence of Renaissance humanism, religious reform, and other political, intellectual, and social developments of these two centuries on the writing of ecclesiastical history in its various forms. These diverse genres, inherited from medieval culture, included saints' lives, diocesan histories, national chronicles, and travel accounts. Early chapters examine Catholic and Protestant traditions of sacred historiography in western Europe, especially Italy and Switzerland. Subsequent chapters examine particular instances of sacred historiography in Germany, central Europe, Spain, England, Ireland, France, and Portuguese India; and developments in Christian art historiography and Holy Land antiquarianism.

Logan, I.
Reading Anselms Proslogion. The History of Anselms Argument and Its Significance Today
Anselm's "Proslogion" has sparked controversy from the time it was written (c. 1077) to the present day. Attempts to provide definitive accounts of its argument have led to a wide and contradictory variety of interpretations. In this book, Ian Logan goes back to basics, to the Latin text of the "Proslogion" with an original parallel English translation, before tracing the twists and turns of this controversy. Helping us to understand how the same argument came to be regarded as based on reason alone by some and on faith alone by others, as a logically sound demonstration by its supporters and as fatally flawed by its opponents, Logan considers what Anselm is setting out to do in the "Proslogion", how his argument works, and whether it is successful.

Hospitaller Women in the Middle Ages
This volume brings together recent and new research, with several items specially translated into English, on the sisters of the largest and most long-lived of the military-religious orders, the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem. In recent years there has been increasing scholarly interest in women's religious houses during the Middle Ages, with particular focus on the problems which they faced and the social needs which they performed. The military-religious orders have been largely excluded from this interest, partly because it has been assumed that women played little role in religious orders with a predominantly military purpose. Recent research has shown this to be a misconception. Study of the women members of these orders enables scholars to gain a deeper appreciation of the nature of hospitaller and military orders and of the role of women in religious life in general. The papers in this volume explore the roles which the Hospitaller sisters performed within their order; examine the problems of having men and women living within the same or adjoining houses; study relations between the order and the patrons of its women's houses; and consider the career of a prominent Hospitaller woman who became a saint. This volume will be of interest not only to scholars of the military-religious orders and of the Hospital of St John in particular, but also to scholars of monastic history and to those with a concern for women's history during the middle ages

Machiavelli, N
Il Principe en andere politieke geschriften
Machiavelli's Il Principe (doorgaans vertaald als De vorst of De heerser) is wellicht de bekendste en invloedrijkste klassieke politieke tekst uit de westerse literatuur. Machiavelli's idee vonden weerklank onder wereldleiders door de eeuwen heen, en zijn gedachten over staatkunde en de condition humaine zijn tot op de dag van vandaag een inspiratiebron voor historici, politicologen en letterkundigen. Deze nieuwe Nederlandse vertaling - de eerste in meer dan dertig jaar - is tot stand gekomen op basis van de meest recente wetenschappelijke inzichten en beoogt Machiavelli's meesterwerk te plaatsen in zijn historische, politieke en literaire context.

Deze monumentale nieuwe editie bevat, naast Il Principe, een reeks minder bekende, maar vaak zeer belangrijke geschriften van Machiavelli. Ten eerste is een vijftiental korte politieke geschriften opgenomen, die inhoudelijk nauw aansluiten bij Il Principe en waarvan de meeste nog niet eerder in het Nederlands werden vertaald. Ook is een aantal belangrijke en veelal vermakelijke brieven opgenomen, die licht werpen op Machiavelli's opvattingen en op de omstandigheden die hem ertoe brachten Il Principe te schrijven. Ten slotte bevat deze uitgave een vertaling van 'Het leven van Castruccio Castracani': een geactualiseerde biografische schets van een veertiende-eeuwse krijgsman, waarin een aantal politieke kernidee van Machiavelli herkenbaar is.

De vertalingen, door P. van Heck, worden voorafgegaan door een uitvoerige inleiding, en zijn alle voorzien van uitgebreid commentaar.

Macy, G.
The Hidden History of Women's Ordination. Female Clergy in the Medieval West
The Roman Catholic leadership still refuses to ordain women officially or even to recognize that women are capable of ordination. But is the widely held assumption that women have always been excluded from such roles historically accurate? How might the current debate change if our view of the history of women's ordination were to change? In The Hidden History of Women's Ordination, Gary Macy offers illuminating and surprising answers to these questions. Macy argues that for the first twelve hundred years of Christianity, women were in fact ordained into various roles in the church. He uncovers references to the ordination of women in papal, episcopal and theological documents of the time, and the rites for these ordinations have survived. The insistence among scholars that women were not ordained, Macy shows, is based on a later definition of ordination, one that would have been unknown in the early Middle Ages. In the early centuries of Christianity, ordination was understood as the process and the ceremony by which one moved to any new ministry in the community. In the early Middle Ages, women served in at least four central ministries: episcopa (woman bishop), presbytera (woman priest), deaconess and abbess. The ordinations of women continued until the Gregorian reforms of the eleventh and twelfth centuries radically altered the definition of ordination. These reforms not only removed women from the ordained ministry, but also attempted to eradicate any memory of women's ordination in the past.

Malegam , Jehangir Yezdi
The Sleep of Behemoth: Disputing Peace and Violence in Medieval Europe, 1000-1200
In The Sleep of Behemoth, Jehangir Yezdi Malegam explores the emergence of conflicting concepts of peace in western Europe during the High Middle Ages. Ever since the early Church, Christian thinkers had conceived of their peace separate from the peace of the world, guarded by the sacraments and shared only grudgingly with powers and principalities. To kingdoms and communities they had allowed attenuated versions of this peace, modes of accommodation and domination that had tranquility as the goal. After 1000, reformers in the papal curia and monks and canons in the intellectual circles of northern France began to reimagine the Church as an engine of true peace, whose task it was eventually to absorb all peoples through progressive acts of revolutionary peacemaking. Peace as they envisioned it became a mandate for reform through conflict, coercion, and insurrection. And the pursuit of mere tranquility appeared dangerous, and even diabolical

The Oxford History of Byzantium
The Oxford History of Byzantium is the only history to provide in concise form detailed coverage of Byzantium from its Roman beginnings to the fall of Constantinople and assimilation into the Turkish Empire. Lively essays and beautiful illustrations portray the emergence and development of a distinctive civilization, covering the period from the fourth century to the mid-fifteenth century. The authors - all working at the cutting edge of their particular fields - outline the political history of the Byzantine state and bring to life the evolution of a colourful culture. In AD 324, the Emperor Constantine the Great chose Byzantion, an ancient Greek colony at the mouth of the Thracian Bosphorous, as his imperial residence. He renamed the place 'Constaninopolis nova Roma', 'Constantinople, the new Rome' and the city (modern Istanbul) became the Eastern capital of the later Roman empire. The new Rome outlived the old and Constantine's successors continued to regard themselves as the legitimate emperors of Rome, just as their subjects called themselves Romaioi, or Romans long after they had forgotten the Latin language. In the sixteenth century, Western humanists gave this eastern Roman empire ruled from Constantinople the epithet 'Byzantine'. Against a backdrop of stories of emperors, intrigues, battles, and bishops, this Oxford History uncovers the hidden mechanisms - economic, social, and demographic - that underlay the history of events. The authors explore everyday life in cities and villages, manufacture and trade, machinery of government, the church as an instrument of state, minorities, education, literary activity, beliefs and superstitions, monasticism, iconoclasm, the rise of Islam, and the fusion with Western, or Latin, culture. Byzantium linked the ancient and modern worlds, shaping traditions and handing down to both Eastern and Western civilization a vibrant legacy.

The twelfth-century Latin beast epic Ysengrimus is one of the great comic masterpieces of the Middle Ages. This long poem, composed in what is today Belgium, recounts the relentless persecution of the wolf Ysengrimus by his archenemy Reynard the fox, in the course of which the wolf is beaten to a pulp, flayed (twice), mutilated, and finally eaten alive by sixty-six pigs. The cartoon-like violence of the narrative is not motivated by a gratuitous delight in cruelty but by a specific satiric aim: the wolf represents the hybrid ecclesiastic who is both abbot and bishop, whose greed is comparable to the wolf's. The details of the narrative are carefully crafted to make the wolf's punishment fit the abbot-bishop's crime, creating a topsy-turvy world in which the predator becomes prey.

In the elaborate rhetorical fantasies that accompany the narrative, the wolf's tortures are represented as honors (for example, his flaying is mockingly represented as an episcopal consecration). This poem gave rise to a whole body of narratives, beginning with the earliest branches of the Romance of Renard and extending into most of the European vernaculars, so influential that the name Renard eventually became the standard word for fox in French.

Martin, J.J.
Venice's Hidden Enemies. Italian Heretics in a Renaissance City
Renaissance Venice is generally portrayed as a city of harmony and consensus. This book offers a sharply different view by highlighting the history of religious dissent in this early modern city. Drawing on sixteenth-century records from archives of the Roman Inquisition, John Jeffries Martin reconstructs the social and cultural worlds of the Venetian heretics-those men and women who articulated their hopes for religious and political reform. Among them were Evangelists, Protestants, Anabaptists, Antitrinitarians, and Millenarians, whose ideologies ranged from moderate to radical. The protagonists included men and women from all social classes; but artisans, above all those in the elite crafts, proved especially likely to give their support to the new reform ideas. Martin's analysis, which explores the interconnections of religious beliefs and social experience, offers new perspectives on the Italian Reformation and demonstrates widespread persistent popular support for this reform of church and society well after the establishment of the Roman Inquisition in the 1540s.

Martin, J.J. (ed.)
The Renaissance World
With an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses the history of ideas, political history, cultural history and art history, this volume in the successful "Routledge Worlds" series offers a sweeping survey of Europe in the Renaissance, from the late thirteenth to early seventeenth centuries, and shows how the Renaissance laid key foundations for many aspects of the modern world. Collating thirty four essays from the field's leading scholars, John Jeffries Martin shows that this period of rapid and complex change resulted from a convergence of a new set of social, economic and technological forces alongside a cluster of interrelated practices including painting, sculpture, humanism and science, in which the elites engaged. Unique in its balance of emphasis on elite and popular culture, on humanism and society, and on women as well as men, "The Renaissance World" grapples with issues as diverse as Renaissance patronage and the development of the slave trade. Lavishly illustrated, the book begins with a section on the antecedents of the Renaissance world, and ends with its lasting influence, creating an invaluable read for students and scholars of history and the Renaissance to dip in to again and again.

Martin, J.J.(ed)
The Renaissance. Italy and Abroad
This volume introduces the most recent scholarship on the history of the Renaissance. He considers not only humanists and artists, but looks at people from all classes, men and women alike. The themes covered in this collection include politics and society, identity and gender, religion and science. The focus is on Italian developments but aspects of the Renaissance in Germany, France, and England are also covered. The contributors to The Renaissance are among the most highly regarded scholars in the field. Their work has opened up new ways of thinking about the period from a variety of perspectives: from the history of the body to new ways of thinking about the relation of culture to power. Clearly the Renaissance remains a vital area of research, even as scholars grow increasingly sceptical about their ability to trace the origins of their own world back to this era in European history. It helped to shape modernity, but, as Martin argues in his provocative introduction, we are now looking back to the Renaissance from a post-modern perspective. The Renaissance: Italy and Abroad presents a thorough introduction to the major debates in Renaissance studies

Mathews, T.
Byzantium: From Antiquity to the Renaissance
With images culled from eleven hundred years of history, this comprehensive survey explores the Byzantine empire's vast range of artistic splendours that indelibly informed the art of modern Europe. Renowned scholar Thomas Mathews emphasizes that the Byzantines' interest in humanism and painting the human figure became the essential bridge between classical and renaissance Europe. Starting with a brief history of Byzantium as a basis for understanding Byzantine theology and art, he places the empire's artistic development within a broad cultural and historical context. Featuring more than one hundred colour plates of mosaics, metalwork, architecture, frescoes and religious artefacts, as well as maps, diagrams, and a timeline, this definitive work provides a complete yet succinct introduction to the full range of Byzantine art and iconography.

McCahill, Elizabeth
Reviving the Eternal City. Rome and the Papal Court, 1420 - 1447
In 1420, after more than one hundred years of the Avignon Exile and the Western Schism, the papal court returned to Rome, which had become depopulated, dangerous, and impoverished in the papacy's absence. Reviving the Eternal City examines the culture of Rome and the papal court during the first half of the fifteenth century, a crucial transitional period before the city's rebirth. As Elizabeth McCahill explains, during these decades Rome and the Curia were caught between conflicting realities - between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, between conciliarism and papalism, between an image of Rome as a restored republic and a dream of the city as a papal capital.

Through the testimony of humanists' rhetorical texts and surviving archival materials, McCahill reconstructs the niche that scholars carved for themselves as they penned vivid descriptions of Rome and offered remedies for contemporary social, economic, religious, and political problems. In addition to analyzing the humanists' intellectual and professional program, McCahill investigates the different agendas that popes Martin V (1417-1431) and Eugenius IV (1431-1447) and their cardinals had for the post-Schism pontificate. Reviving the Eternal City illuminates an urban environment in transition and explores the ways in which curialists collaborated and competed to develop Rome's ancient legacy into a potent cultural myth.

Hermeneutics and the Turning over a new leaf, change and development in the medieval book
Wat kunnen we concluderen over de lezer aan de hand van een onderzoek naar de lay-out van een middeleeuwse tekst? Mogen we aan de hand van een collectie van een bibliotheek conclusies trekken over de cultuur waarin deze collectie werd samengesteld? Gedurende de middeleeuwen waren manuscripten voor boeken voortdurend onderhevig aan veranderingen. Deze kwamen voort uit nieuwe inzichten in bijvoorbeeld het gebruik van koppen bij teksten of de toepassing van hoofdstuknummering. Met de focus op de negende en twaalfde eeuw verkent dit boek de veranderingen die er plaatshadden in de keuze van het gebruikte materiaal, maar ook de veranderende omstandigheden waaronder handgeschreven boeken werden geproduceerd, gebruikt en verzameld. Door een onderzoek naar een breed palet aan teksten en gedetailleerde analyse van handschriften uit alle hoeken van Europa onthult dit boek de relatie tussen het boek en zijn gebruikers.

Merback , Mitchell B.
Pilgrimage and Pogrom: Violence, Memory, and Visual Culture at the Host-miracle Shrines of Germany and Austria
In the late Middle Ages, Europe saw the rise of one of its most virulent myths: that Jews abused the eucharistic bread as a form of anti-Christian blasphemy, causing it to bleed miraculously. The allegation fostered tensions between Christians and Jews that would explode into violence across Germany and Austria. And pilgrimage shrines were built on the sites where supposed desecrations had led to miracles or to anti-Semitic persecutions. Exploring the legends, cult forms, imagery, and architecture of these host-miracle shrines, "Pilgrimage and Pogrom" reveals how they not only reflected but also actively shaped Christian anti-Judaism in the two centuries before the Reformation. Mitchell B. Merback studies surviving relics and eucharistic cult statues, painted miracle cycles and altarpieces, propaganda broadsheets, and more in an effort to explore how accusation and legend were transformed into propaganda and memory. Merback shows how persecution and violence became interdependent with normative aspects of Christian piety, from pilgrimage to prayers for the dead, infusing them with the ideals of crusade. Valiantly reconstructing the cult environments created for these sacred places, "Pilgrimage and Pogrom" is an illuminating look at Christian-Jewish relations in premodern Europe.

Milis, L.
Van Waarheden en Werkelijkheid. De opvattingen van de middeleeuwers in het blikveld van nu
De Middeleeuwen lijken een periode die mentaal gezien ver van ons is verwijderd, maar is dat wel zo? Ludo Milis, emeritus hoogleraar te Gent, duikt in middeleeuwse, vooral verhalende teksten, om diepere structuren bloot te leggen van het denken en voelen van toen. Met citaten brengt hij de waarden en normen tot leven zoals tijdgenoten ze zelf formuleerden. Eerst kijkt Ludo Milis naar de houding tegenover God, andere goden en religies, en de problemen die er uit voortvloeiden in de middeleeuwse samenleving. Vervolgens gaat Milis in op de rol van eer en aanverwante waarden als basis van sociaal gedrag. Uiteindelijk wordt gepeild naar de rol van geesten en de onderwereld. Het is verrassend om te zien hoe veel aspecten die voorgoed achter de rug leken, een nieuwe actualiteit en grotere herkenbaarheid krijgen in onze multiculturele samenleving.

Miller, Maureen C.
The Bishop's Palace. Architecture and Authority in Medieval Italy.
This lavishly illustrated book looks at the art and architecture of episcopal palaces as expressions of power and ideology. Tracing the history of the bishop's residence in the urban centers of northern Italy over the Middle Ages, Maureen C. Miller asks why this once rudimentary and highly fortified structure called a domus became a complex and elegant "palace" (palatium) by the late twelfth century.

Miller argues that the change reflects both the emergence of a distinct clerical culture and the attempts of bishops to maintain authority in public life. She relates both to the Gregorian reform movement, which set new standards for clerical deportment and at the same time undercut episcopal claims to secular power. As bishops lost temporal authority in their cities to emerging communal governments, they compensated architecturally and competed with the communes for visual and spatial dominance in the urban center. This rivalry left indelible marks on the layout and character of Italian cities.

Moreover, Miller contends, this struggle for power had highly significant, but mixed, results for western Christianity. On the one hand, as bishops lost direct governing authority in their cities, they devised ways to retain status, influence, and power through cultural practices. This response to loss was highly creative. On the other hand, their loss of secular control led bishops to emphasize their spiritual powers and to use them to obtain temporal ends. The coercive use of spiritual authority contributed to the emergence of a "persecuting society" in the central Middle Ages.

Minois, G.
The Atheist's Bible. The Most Dangerous Book That Never Existed
Like a lot of good stories, this one begins with a rumor: in 1239, Pope Gregory IX accused Frederick II, the Holy Roman Emperor, of heresy. Without disclosing evidence of any kind, Gregory announced that Frederick had written a supremely blasphemous book - "De tribus impostoribus", or the "Treatise of the Three Impostors" - in which Frederick denounced Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad as impostors. Of course, Frederick denied the charge, and over the following centuries the story played out across Europe, with libertines, freethinkers, and other "strong minds" seeking a copy of the scandalous text. The fascination persisted until finally, in the eighteenth century, someone brought the purported work into actual existence-in not one but two versions, Latin and French.

Although historians have debated the origins and influences of this nonexistent book, there has not been a comprehensive biography of the "Treatise of the Three Impostors". In "The Atheist's Bible", the eminent historian Georges Minois tracks the course of the book from its origins in 1239 to its most salient episodes in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, introducing readers to the colorful individuals obsessed with possessing the legendary work-and the equally obsessive passion of those who wanted to punish people who sought it. Minois' compelling account sheds much-needed light on the power of atheism, the threat of blasphemy, and the persistence of free thought during a time when the outspoken risked being burned at the stake.

Mitchell, Stephen A.
Witchcraft and Magic in the Nordic Middle Ages
Stephen A. Mitchell here offers the fullest examination available of witchcraft in late medieval Scandinavia. He focuses on those people believed to be able-and who in some instances thought themselves able-to manipulate the world around them through magical practices, and on the responses to these beliefs in the legal, literary, and popular cultures of the Nordic Middle Ages. His sources range from the Icelandic sagas to cultural monuments much less familiar to the nonspecialist, including legal cases, church art, law codes, ecclesiastical records, and runic spells. Mitchell's starting point is the year 1100, by which time Christianity was well established in elite circles throughout Scandinavia, even as some pre-Christian practices and beliefs persisted in various forms. The book's endpoint coincides with the coming of the Reformation and the onset of the early modern Scandinavian witch hunts. The terrain covered is complex, home to the Germanic Scandinavians as well as their non-Indo-European neighbors, the Sami and Finns, and it encompasses such diverse areas as the important trade cities of Copenhagen, Bergen, and Stockholm, with their large foreign populations; the rural hinterlands; and the insular outposts of Iceland and Greenland. By examining witches, wizards, and seeresses in literature, lore, and law, as well as surviving charm magic directed toward love, prophecy, health, and weather, Mitchell provides a portrait of both the practitioners of medieval Nordic magic and its performance. With an understanding of mythology as a living system of cultural signs (not just ancient sacred narratives), this study also focuses on such powerful evolving myths as those of "the milk-stealing witch," the diabolical pact, and the witches' journey to Blakulla. Court cases involving witchcraft, charm magic, and apostasy demonstrate that witchcraft ideologies played a key role in conceptualizing gender and were themselves an important means of exercising social control.

Tijdelijk 12,99 (van 3/7/14 t.m. 31/8/14 - daarna weer 19,99)

De katharen, de overwinning van de vrijheid van Bram Moerland wordt door kenners wel 'het beste boek over de katharen' genoemd. Waarom? Omdat Bram Moerland in De katharen de geschiedenis en betekenis van de katharen inzichtelijk neerzet, met een helder ook voor het menselijk aspect. Dit maakt De katharen tot een ontroerend en aangrijpend document.

De katharen, wie waren dat? Wat geloofden ze? Waarom werden ze door de kerk vervolgd? Op deze vragen geeft Bram Moerland in dit goed geschreven en prettig leesbare boek een duidelijk en begrijpelijk antwoord.

Bram Moerland was docent filosofie aan de School voor Journalistiek in Utrecht. Met zijn ontdekking van de katharen begon voor hem een historische, en steeds persoonlijker wordende speurtocht naar de verborgen spirituele traditie van de gnosis

Dante's metaphysics - his understanding of reality - is very different from our own. To present Dante's ideas about the cosmos, or God, or salvation, or history, or poetry within the context of post-Enlightenment presuppositions, as is usually done, is thus to capture only imperfectly the essence of those ideas.

The recovery of Dante's metaphysics is essential, argues Christian Moevs, if we are to resolve what has been called the central problem in the interpretation of the Comedy: what to make of the Comedy's claim to the 'status of revelation, vision, or experiential record - as something more than imaginative literature'.

In this book Moevs offers the first sustained treatment of the metaphysical picture that grounds and motivates the Comedy, and of the relation between those metaphysics and Dante's poetics through a detailed examination of three notoriously complex cantos of the Paradiso, read against the background of the Neoplatonic and Aristotelian tradition from which they arise. Moevs finds the key to the Comedy's metaphysics and poetics in the concept of creation, which implies three fundamental insights into the nature of reality: 1) The world (finite being) is radically contingent, dependent at every instant on what gives it being. 2) The relation between the world and the ground of its being is non-dualistic. God is not a thing, and there is nothing the world is "made of" 3) Human beings are radically free, unbound by the limits of nature, and thus can find all of time and space within themselves. These insights are the foundation of the pilgrim Dante's journey from the center of the world to the Empyrean which contains it. For Dante what we perceive as reality is a creation or projection of conscious being, which can only be known as oneself.

Moevs argues that self-knowledge is in fact the keystone of the Aristotelian and Neoplatonic philosophical tradition, and the essence of the Christian revelation in which that tradition culminates.

Moore, R. I.
The Birth of Popular Heresy
The seeds of heresy are contained in Christianity itself, which began as a religion of dissent. In the Middle Ages the Church was the main focus of intellectual activity, and its spiritual leaders themselves often questioned the practices and beliefs which heretics openly challenged. The documentary analysed in this volume trace the development of popular heresy from its beginnings. Four main themes are presented: the first manifestations of popular dissent in the eleventh century; the emergence of evangelical anticlericalism in the twelfth century; the infiltration of western heterodoxy in the mid-1100s; and the establishment and early organization of Cathar Churches in southern France and northern Italy which ultimately led to the inquisition. Originally published by Edward Arnold, 1975.

Marquard von Lindau and the Challenges of Religious Life in Late Medieval Germany. The Passion, the Eucharist, the Virgin Mary
This is a study of the intellectual history and religious culture of German-speaking Europe in the late Middle Ages. Its focus is the bilingual oeuvre of the Franciscan friar Marquard von Lindau (d. 1392), arguably the most widely-read author in the German language before the Reformation. His most successful works were those in which he considered pragmatic issues of Christian life, aimed at a broad reading public that stretched from monks and nuns living the contemplative life in enclosed convents; to his confreres, novices and students in the mendicant orders; and the literate citizens of the burgeoning mercantile centres. It is three of these pragmatic issues, central to late medieval religious life, around which this book is structured: the Passion of Christ, the sacrament of the Eucharist, and the devotion to the Virgin Mary. The dominant approaches taken towards each of these in the fourteenth-century church represented problematic challenges to Marquard; challenges which he met in a distinctive and influential manner, by no means in accordance with the affectively-charged devotional practices encouraged by many within and without his order, and so often considered normative for late medieval religious culture. The original voice with which Marquard spoke is made clear through the location of his oeuvre within the pan-European context of the debates in which his works participate. The ethos his works projected redetermined the trajectory of intellectual life in Germany into the fifteenth century and beyond.

In de marge van de beschaving, geschiedenis van Nederland, 0-1100
In het lange eerste millennium van onze jaartelling was 'Nederland' steeds een grensgebied tussen de belangrijkste machtssferen in het westen van Europa en hun buren. De inwoners van de delta van Rijn, Maas en Schelde ondervonden overigens weinig last van deze positie in de marge van de beschaving. Ze deelden graag in de cultuur van bijvoorbeeld de mediterrane beschaving.

In de marge van de beschaving vertelt het verhaal van dit eerste millennium van onze jaartelling in die gebieden die later 'Nederland' zouden vormen. Er was nog geen politieke eenheid. Er was ook geen 'volk' dat zich als Nederlands beschouwde. Men identificeerde zich met de eigen verwanten, met de streek, met de eigen religie.

Hoe leefden de mensen in deze marge van de beschaving? Hoe voorzagen ze in hun levensonderhoud? Hoe werd de macht uitgeoefend? Wat geloofden ze? Wat dachten ze? Wat wist men van de wereld elders? En wat waren de verschillen tussen de bewoners van de delta in de Romeinse tijd, de Frankische en Karolingische tijd, en in de tijden na het jaar 1000, toen de samenleving hier voor het eerst schuchtere, maar duidelijke stedelijke trekken begon te vertonen naast de nog eeuwenlang overwegend agrarische trekken? In de marge van de beschaving maakt de nieuwste inzichten op dit gebied toegankelijk voor een publiek van niet-specialisten.

Mundy, J. H.
Studies in the Ecclesiastical and Social History of Toulouse in the Age of the Cathars
"Studies in the Ecclesiastical and Social History of Toulouse in the Age of the Cathars" is John H. Mundy's last major book concerning social and religious life in the city of Toulouse during the period 1150 - 1250 AD, a time when the alternate religion of Catharism, together with other divergent beliefs, rose to its height and, soon under intense repression, began to die out. The various studies, entirely reworked for this publication, and prefaced with an account of Mundy's early research in the Toulouse archives in 1946 - 47, document his understanding that religious divergence flourished when the town's well-to-do were building a semi-popular oligarchy at the expense of local princely power. The book reveals how the religious orders managed an extensive insurance network providing pensions, old age care and burial for lay society. His chapters on hospitals and leprosaries, charities, entertainers, judges, heretics and usurers bring the daily life of this period to life. The studies of Toulouse are enhanced by Mundy's expert cartography drawing on the Plan Sanguet of 1750. This volume, compiled in the year prior to his death, represents the culmination of his long career as archivist, scholar and teacher. It completes the work he began in 1946 and published in earlier books: "The Medieval Town (Princeton, 1958)", "Europe in the High Middle Ages, 1150 - 1309" (Longman, 1975), "The Repression of Catharism at Toulouse: the Royal Diploma of 1279 (Toronto, 1985)", "Men and Women at Toulouse in the Age of the Cathars (Toronto, 1990)" and "Society and Government at Toulouse in the Age of the Cathars (PIMS, 1997)"

Murdoch, B.
The Apocryphal Adam and Eve in Medieval Europe: Vernacular Translations and Adaptations of the 'Vita Adae Et Evae'
What happened to Adam and Eve after their expulsion from paradise? Where the biblical narrative fell silent apocryphal writings took up this intriguing question, notably including the Early Christian Latin text, the Life of Adam and Eve. This account describes the (failed) attempt of the couple to return to paradise by fasting whilst immersed in a river, and explores how they coped with new experiences such as childbirth and death.
Brian Murdoch guides the reader through the many variant versions of the Life, demonstrating how it was also adapted into most western and some eastern European languages in the Middle Ages and beyond, constantly developing and changing along the way. The study considers this development of the apocryphal texts whilst presenting a fascinating insight into the flourishing medieval tradition of Adam and Eve. A tradition that the Reformation would largely curtail, stories from the Life were celebrated in European prose, verse and drama in many different languages from Irish to Russian.

Murdoch, Brian
Gregorius: An Incestuous Saint in Medieval Europe and Beyond
The story of the apocryphal pope and saint Gregorius was extremely popular throughout the middle ages and later in Europe and beyond. In a memorable narrative Gregorius is born from an incestuous relationship between a noble brother and sister, and is set out to sea with (unspecific) details of his origin. He is found and brought up by an abbot, but when revealed as a foundling leaves as a knight to seek his origins; he rescues his mother's land from attack, and marries her. On discovering his sin he undertakes years of penance on a rocky islet, which he survives miraculously. An angel sends emissaries from Rome to find him after the death of the pope, the key to his shackles is equally miraculously discovered, and he becomes pope. This hagiographical romance is not a variation upon Oedipus; it uses the invisible sin of incest as a parallel both for original sin (the sin of Adam and Eve) and for actual sin. It combines the universal theme of the quest for identity with the problem not of guilt as such, which is inevitable, but of how sinful humanity can cope with it. Brian Murdoch traces the story's probable origins in medieval England or France, and its later appearance in versions from Iceland and Ireland to Iraq and Egypt, in verse and prose, in full-scale literary forms or in much-reduced folktales, in theological as well as secular contexts, down to Thomas Mann and beyond.

Burgesses and Burgess Law in the Latin Kingdoms of Jerusalem and Cyprus (1099-1325)
This is the first book devoted to the study of burgesses in the Latin Kingdoms of Jerusalem and Cyprus (1099-1325). It offers a comprehensive assessment of the contributions made by the non-feudal class to the development of legal and commercial institutions in the 12th, 13th and 14th centuries. Dispensing with the commonly held view that burgesses had only marginal influence, evidence is presented to illustrate how the existence of a 'middle class' was essential to the ambitions of the kingdoms' leaders. A systematic examination of all relevant contemporary source material - charters, law-books and narrative accounts - sheds light on how serfs and freemen, originating from diverse regions of Europe, were able to organise themselves into a class whose status set them apart from non-Latin Christians and Muslims. The study considers at length the different ways in which burgess legislation was formulated; traces the gradual development of the Cour des Bourgeois, the court of burgesses, in terms of its composition and competence; describes in detail the burgess laws of Acre and Nicosia which related, for example, to marriage and inheritance; and defines the special characteristics of a type of property known as a borgesie which was mostly but not exclusively in the hands of burgesses. Dr Nader's research, furthermore, reveals the complexity of burgess jurisdiction and legislation in the East, and advocates the theory that secular courts established by ecclesiastical institutions exercised authority over burgesses and borgesies in matters which went beyond the parameters of purely ecclesiastical jurisdiction

The Controversy of Renaissance Art
Many studies have shown that images - their presence in the daily lives of the faithful, the means used to control them, and their adaptation to secular uses - were at the heart of the Reformation crisis in northern Europe. But the question as it affects the art of Italy has been raised only in highly specialized studies. In this book, Alexander Nagel provides the first truly synthetic study of the controversies over religious images that pervaded Italian life both before and parallel to the Reformation north of the Alps. Tracing the intertwined relationship of artistic innovation and archaism, as well as the new pressures placed on the artistic media in the midst of key developments in religious iconography, "The Controversy of Renaissance Art" offers an important and original history of humanist thought and artistic experimentation from one of our most acclaimed historians of art.

Nagy, Joseph Falaky
Conversing With Angels and Ancients. Literary Myths of Medieval Ireland
How does a written literature come into being within an oral culture, and how does such a literature achieve and maintain its authority? Joseph Falaky Nagy addresses those issues in his wide-ranging reading of the medieval literature of Ireland, from the writings of St. Patrick to the epic tales about the warrior Cu Chulainn. These texts, written in both Latin and Irish, constitute an adventurous and productive experiment in staging confrontations between the written and the spoken, the Christian and the pagan.

The early Irish literati, primarily clerics living within a monastic milieu, produced literature that included saints' lives, heroic sagas, law tracts, and other genres. They sought to invest their literature with an authority different from that of the traditions from which they borrowed, native and foreign. To achieve this goal, they cast many of their texts as the outcome of momentous dialogues between saints and angelic messengers or remarkable interviews with the dead, who could reveal some insight from the past that needed to be rediscovered by forgetful contemporaries. Conversing with angels and ancients, medieval Irish writers boldly inscribed their visions of the past onto the new Christian order and its literature.

Newman, Barbara
God and the Goddesses. Vision, Poetry, and Belief in the Middle Ages
Contrary to popular belief, the medieval religious imagination did not restrict itself to masculine images of God but envisaged the divine in multiple forms. In fact, the God of medieval Christendom was the Father of only one Son but many daughters - including Lady Philosophy, Lady Love, Dame Nature, and Eternal Wisdom. God and the Goddesses is a study in medieval imaginative theology, examining the numerous daughters of God who appear in allegorical poems, theological fictions, and the visions of holy women. We have tended to understand these deities as mere personifications and poetic figures, but that, Barbara Newman contends, is a mistake. These goddesses are neither pagan survivals nor versions of the Great Goddess constructed in archetypal psychology, but distinctive creations of the Christian imagination. As emanations of the Divine, mediators between God and the cosmos, embodied universals, and ravishing objects of identification and desire, medieval goddesses transformed and deepened Christendom's concept of God, introducing religious possibilities beyond the ambit of scholastic theology and bringing them to vibrant imaginative life.

Building a bridge between secular and religious conceptions of allegorized female power, Newman advances such questions as whether medieval writers believed in their goddesses and, if so, in what manner. She investigates whether the personifications encountered in poetic fictions can be distinguished from those that appear in religious visions and questions how medieval writers reconcile their statements about the multiple daughters of God with orthodox devotion to the Son of God. Furthermore, she examines why forms of feminine God-talk that strike many Christians today as subversive or heretical did not threaten medieval churchmen.

Nicetas , the Paphlagonian, Andrew Smithies (ed and transl), John M. Duffy (notes)
The Life of Patriarch Ignatius
This is the vivid and partisan account of two tremendous ecclesiastical struggles of the ninth century. One was between opposing patriarchs of Constantinople - the learned Photius (858-867, 877-886) and the monk Ignatius (847-858, 867-877) - and gave rise to long periods of schism, intrigue, and scandal in the Greek Orthodox world. The other was between Patriarch Photius and the papacy, which at its low point saw Photius and Nicholas I trade formal condemnations of each other and adversely affected East-West relations for generations afterwards.

The author of The Life of Patriarch Ignatius, Nicetas David Paphlagon, was a prolific and versatile writer, but also a fierce conservative in ecclesiastical politics, whose passion and venom show through on every page. As much a frontal attack on Photius as a record of the author's hero Ignatius, The Life of Patriarch Ignatius offers a fascinating, if biased, look into the complex world of the interplay between competing church factions, the imperial powers, and the papacy in the ninth century. This important historical document is here critically edited and translated into English for the first time. The annotations, maps, and indexes help the reader to place the work in context.

The Knight Templars on Trial. The Trial of the Templars in the British Isles, 1308-1311
The trial of the Templars in the British Isles (1308-1311) is a largely unexplored area of history. Unlike the trial in France, where the Templars were tortured into confessing to unspeakable activities, in the British Isles there were no burnings and only three confessions after torture. Several Templars went missing, most of whom later reappeared. Outsiders told stories of abominable Templar rituals, secret meetings and murders at the dead of night, but all these tales turned out to be mere rumour. This book is based on extensive research into the records of the trial of the Templars and other unpublished medieval documents recording their arrest, imprisonment and trial, and the surveys of their property. It traces the course of this, the first heresy trial in the British Isles, from the arrests in January 1308 to the dissolution of the Order, and shows how, by judicious selection of material, the inquisitors made the scanty evidence against the Templars appear convincing. The book includes a list of all the Templars in the British Isles at the time of the arrests, and a gazetteer of the Templars' major properties in the British Isles.

The Proceedings Against the Templars in the British Isles. Volume 1 & 2: The Latin Edition and the Translation
In October 1307 all the brothers of the military religious Order of the Temple in France were arrested on the instructions of King Philip IV and charged with heresy. In November, Pope Clement V instructed King Edward II of England to do likewise. This volume provides the first full edition of the four surviving texts of the trial proceedings that followed in Britain and Ireland; volume 2 supplies the translations into English.

The trial of the Templars was the first major heresy trial in the British Isles, and the proceedings reveal the Episcopate's attempts to deal with this unprecedented situation, the varying procedures followed in different countries, and how testimonies were recorded and summarised for the Church Councils which eventually decided the fate of the Order of the Temple. The testimonies given during the trial contain a wealth of information about religious beliefs among the lay population of the British Isles (both the Templars and outsiders who gave evidence during the trial), national and international mobility of lay religious, the social function of the order of the Temple in the British Isles and its relations with society at large, and the organisation and operations of the Order of the Temple at a local, national and international level.

Detailed introductions to each volume describe the manuscripts and how the material was compiled and arranged, and discuss the course of the proceedings and the value of the evidence they contain. Appendices in volume 2 (the translation) list the names of all the Templars mentioned during the proceedings, Templar houses and the locations of the proceedings in London.

This title is also available in separate volumes.

Nieuwenhoeve, R. van
An Introduction to Medieval Theology
Luther's transformational idea of justification by faith alone was often misunderstood and misrepresented in the early years of the Reformation. In 1520, with his Wittenberg congregation in mind, Luther set out to clarify the biblical foundation of good works. In doing so he recast the very definitions of "sacred" and "secular" both for his own generation and ours.

Treatise on Good Works is the second of an occasional series of guides to key Reformation treatises by Martin Luther. Aimed at increasing understanding and interest among contemporary readers, these slim, affordable volumes feature new translations and a range of helpful features.

Noble, Th. F.X.
Images, Iconoclasm, and the Carolingians
In the year 726 C.E., the Byzantine emperor Leo III issued an edict declaring images to be idols, forbidden by Exodus, and ordering all such images in churches to be destroyed. Thus commenced the first wave of Byzantine iconoclasm, which ran its violent course until 787, when the underlying issues were temporarily resolved at the Second Council of Nicaea. In 815, a second great wave of iconoclasm was set off, only to end in 842 when the icons were restored to the churches of the East and the iconoclasts excommunicated. The iconoclast controversies have long been understood as marking major fissures between the Western and Eastern churches. Thomas F. X. Noble reveals that the lines of division were not so clear. It is traditionally maintained that the Carolingians in the 790s did not understand the basic issues involved in the Byzantine dispute. Noble contends that there was, in fact, a significant Carolingian controversy about visual art and, if its ties to Byzantine iconoclasm were tenuous, they were also complex and deeply rooted in central concerns of the Carolingian court. Furthermore, he asserts that the Carolingians made distinctive and original contributions to the whole debate over religious art. Images, Iconoclasm, and the Carolingians is the first book to provide a comprehensive study of the Western response to Byzantine iconoclasm. By comparing art-texts with laws, letters, poems, and other sources, Noble reveals the power and magnitude of the key discourses of the Carolingian world during its most dynamic and creative decades.

Nunez Muley, Francisco
A Memorandum for the President of the Royal Audiencia and Chancery Court of the City and Kingdom of Granada
Conquered in 1492 and colonized by invading Castilians, the city and kingdom of Granada faced radical changes imposed by its occupiers throughout the first half of the sixteenth century - including the forced conversion of its native Muslim population. Written by Francisco Nunez Muley, one of many coerced Christian converts, this extraordinary letter lodges a clear-sighted, impassioned protest against the unreasonable and strongly assimilationist laws that required all converted Muslims in Granada to dress, speak, eat, marry, celebrate festivals, and be buried exactly as the Castilian settler population did.

Now available in its first English translation, Nunez Muley's account is an invaluable example of how Spain's former Muslims made active use of the written word to challenge and openly resist the progressively intolerant policies of the Spanish Crown. Timely and resonant - given current debates concerning Islam, minorities, and cultural and linguistic assimilation - this edition provides scholars in a range of fields with a vivid and early example of resistance in the face of oppression.

Krijgers voor God. De orde van de tempeliers in de Lage Landen 1120-1312
Het conflict in het Midden-Oosten en de Da Vinci Code: ze hebben kruistochten en ridderorden als grondslag. Maar waar eindigt de mythe en begint de realiteit? Dit boek stelt scherp op de orde van de tempeliers. Wie waren die mysterieuze krijgers voor God? En vooral: welke rol speelden zij in de Lage Landen? 1120. Negen ridders, onder wie de Vlaming Godfried van Sint Omaars, leggen kloostergeloften af. Ze zullen de pilgrims die naar Jeruzalem toestromen, beschermen tegen moslims. De orde van de tempeliers, tegelijkertijd religious en militair, is een feit. De Nederlanden worden een logistieke en financi draaischijf van de orde. Hier werven de tempeliers rekruten, ze verwerven er vastgoed, drijven handel,boeren en bankieren. Speelt die rijkdom een rol in het doodvonnis van de tempeliers? In 1312 wordt de orde op bevel van Filips de Schone afgeschaft.

Wereld in woorden, geschiedenis van de Nederlandse literatuur 1300-1400
Wereld in woorden opent een compleet nieuw venster op de roemruchte veertiende eeuw: de eeuw van de pest - waaraan Europa bijna de helft van zijn inwoners verloor - en nog veel meer van binnen en van buiten komend onheil. Maar ook een eeuw van grote creativiteit - zoals blijkt uit de Nederlandse literatuur in deze periode, door Frits van Oostrom meesterlijk en meeslepend opnieuw tot leven gebracht. Een ongekend bonte stoet van teksten en schrijvers trekt in een machtig panorama langs. De alom vereerde mysticus Jan van Ruusbroec, maar ook rebelse geesten. Bloedstollende chirurgische geschriften en ethische tegeltjeswijsheden. De unieke abele spelen, de schuine humor van de boerden, en het altijd weer ontroerende Egidiuslied. Zowel grote klassiekers als obscure teksten komen aan de orde, verrijkt met tal van nieuwe vondsten uit recent onderzoek. Wereld in woorden - dat een tweeluik vormt met het veelgeprezen Stemmen op schrift - brengt voor de cultuurgeschiedenis van Nederland en Vlaanderen een fascinerende eeuw opnieuw tot leven, en zet de kroon op de loopbaan van een gelauwerd wetenschapper en begenadigd schrijver

Divine Production in Late Medieval Trinitarian Theology: Henry of Ghent, Duns Scotus, and William Ockham
According to the doctrine of the Trinity, the Father, Son, and Spirit are supposed to be distinct from each other, and yet be one and the same God. As if that were not perplexing enough, there is also supposed to be an internal process of production that gives rise to the Son and Spirit: the Son is said to be 'begotten' by the Father, while the Spirit is said to 'proceed' either from the Father and the Son together, or from the Father, but through the Son. One might wonder, though, just how this sort of divine production is supposed to work. Does the Father, for instance, fashion the Son out of materials, or does he conjure up the Son out of nothing? Is there a middle ground one could take here, or is the whole idea of divine production simply unintelligible?

In the late 13th and early 14th centuries, scholastic theologians subjected these questions to detailed philosophical analysis, and those discussions make up one of the most important, and one of the most neglected, aspects of late medieval trinitarian theology.
This book examines the central ideas and arguments that defined this debate, namely those of Henry of Ghent, John Duns Scotus, and William Ockham. Their discussions are significant not only for the history of trinitarian theology, but also for the history of philosophy, especially regarding the notions of production and causal powers.

De deemoed Gods. verkenningen in het licht van Franciscus van Assisi
Hoe kunnen we spreken over de deemoed van de almachtige en eeuwige God? Is deemoed, of nederigheid, niet per definitie een menselijke deugd, eigen aan de mens als schepsel? Als geschapen wezen past de mens wezenlijk deemoed en nederigheid tegenover zijn Schepper. Is het dan wel passend om te spreken van de deemoed van God? Kunnen we deze fundamenteel menselijke houding of deugd op God toepassen zonder aan Gods wezen afbreuk te doen? De deemoed Gods gaat nader in op deze vragen. Het zijn theologische vragen, die onderzoeken op welke wijze men zinnig over God kan spreken. Omdat de deemoed Gods de kern raakt van het Nieuwe Testament, namelijk het mysterie van Gods menswording in Jezus Christus, komen daarbij allereerst historisch-exegetische vragen aan bod. Maar de deemoed van God raakt ook de mens zelf, want het is vanwege de mens dat God zich vernederd heeft. En hier raken wij aan de kern van de franciscaanse spiritualiteit. Franciscus zag dat hij om God te vinden niet naar de hemel moest staren, maar juist naar beneden. Als God in Christus is afgedaald om de mens te vinden, dan moet de mens dus ook afdalen, Christus achterna, om God te vinden. Dit cruciale en paradoxale gegeven, dat fundamenteel christologische en franciscanologische vragen oproept, wordt hier nader verkend.

Parsons, G.
The Cult of Saint Catherine of Siena. A Study in Civil Religion
This book examines the origins, development and history of the cult of Saint Catherine of Siena. Gerald Parsons argues that the cult of Catherine of Siena constitutes a remarkable example of the cult of a particular saint which, across more than six centuries, has been the vehicle for an evolving sequence of civil religious rituals and meanings. He shows how the cult of this particular saint developed, firstly, as an expression of Sienese civil religion; secondly, as a focus for Italian civil religion; and finally into an expression of European civil religion. Instead of the predominantly devotional - and frequently essentially hagiographical - approach of much of the literature on Catherine of Siena, Parsons examines the significance of her cult from the perspective of civil religion and the social history of religion.

Passannante, G.
The Lucretian Renaissance. Philology and the Afterlife of Tradition
With "The Lucretian Renaissance", Gerard Passannante offers a radical rethinking of a familiar narrative: the rise of materialism in early modern Europe. Passannante begins by taking up the ancient philosophical notion that the world is composed of two fundamental opposites: atoms, as the philosopher Epicurus theorized, intrinsically unchangeable and moving about the void; and, the void itself, or nothingness. Passannante considers the fact that this strain of ancient Greek philosophy survived and was transmitted to the Renaissance primarily by means of a poem that had seemingly been lost - a poem insisting that the letters of the alphabet are like the atoms that make up the universe. By tracing this elemental analogy through the fortunes of Lucretius' "On the Nature of Things", Passannante argues that the philosophy of atoms and the void reemerged in the Renaissance as a story about reading and letters - a story that materialized in texts, in their physical recomposition, and in their scattering. From the works of Virgil and Macrobius to those of Petrarch, Montaigne, Bacon, Spenser, and Newton, "The Lucretian Renaissance" recovers a forgotten history of materialism in humanist thought and scholarly practice and asks us to reconsider one of the most enduring questions of the period: what does it mean for a text, a poem, and philosophy to be "reborn"?

The Siege and the Fall of Constantinople in 1453. Historiography, Topography, and Military Studies
This major study is a comprehensive scholarly work on a key moment in the history of Europe, the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. The result of years of research, it presents all available sources along with critical evaluations of these narratives. The authors have consulted texts in all relevant languages, both those that remain only in manuscript and others that have been printed, often in careless and inferior editions. Attention is also given to "folk history" as it evolved over centuries, producing prominent myths and folktales in Greek, medieval Russian, Italian, and Turkish folklore. Part I, The Pen, addresses the complex questions introduced by this myriad of original literature and secondary sources.

Part II, The Sword, applies the results of these researches, first to the topography of the wall areas and adjacent structures, surveying key areas that played a part in the defense of the imperial city. These investigations have resulted in new conclusions, compelling the acceptance of consequences that previous studies failed to consider. There then follows a fresh study of the land and sea operations during the siege, with particular attention given to Ottoman offensive strategies and methods, and to the defensive operations of the besieged.

This work is detailed in its evaluation of and presentation of sources, and it fills a gap in scholarship, as there is no comprehensive guide to these events. In addition, as a reference work, it will be essential as a starting point for any future studies of the siege and fall of Constantinople.

Pico della Mirandola
Oration on the Dignitiy of Man. A New Translation and Commentary
This is a new translation of and commentary on Pico della Mirandola's most famous work, the Oration on the Dignity of Man.

It is the first English edition to provide readers with substantial notes on the text, essays that address the work's historical, philosophical and theological context, and a survey of its reception. Often called the 'Manifesto of the Renaissance', this brief but complex text was originally composed in 1486 as the inaugural speech for an assembly of intellectuals, which could have produced one of the most exhaustive metaphysical, theological and psychological debates in history, had Pope Innocent VIII not forbidden it. This edition of the Oration reflects the spirit of the original text in bringing together experts in different fields. Not unlike the debate Pico optimistically anticipated, the resulting work is superior to the sum of its parts.

Pierce, J.B.
Poverty, Heresy and the Apocalypse. The Order of Apostles and Social Change in Medieval Italy (1260-1307)
This is an innovative study of medieval heresy with a wide potential audience across religious, political, social and economic medieval history. This study to examine the rise and fall of a medieval religious group, the Order of Apostles, that began with orthodox support but ended in the fires of heresy.

Originating in 1260 in Parma the group was founded by Gerard Segarelli who believed that a life of apostolic poverty was the true path of Christian devotion. Segarelli was initially supported by the Church but as his cohort grew in number and fame he was charged with heresy by the powerful Franciscans, was tried, and burnt as a heretic. The Order's control was assumed by Fra Dolcino who led the Apostles into direct opposition to the Roman Church and was himself executed in 1307.

This is an important study presenting new findings in the history of medieval heresy, as well as placing the Order of Apostles within the larger context of political, economic and social history. By examining the rise and fall of the Apostles, Pierce shows the dramatic consequences of the transformation of European society during the high Middle Ages.

Pikkemaat, G.
Jeanne d'Arc. De maagd van Orleans
Na Eleonore van Aquitanie is Jeanne d’'Arc de tweede middeleeuwse vrouw waar Guus Pikkemaat een boek aan wijdt. Het is een onderwerp wat zeker de moeite waard is. Jeanne d‘ Arc is een van die intrigerende figuren in wie de middeleeuwse mentaliteit in al haar eigenaardigheid tot uitdrukking komt.

Ze was een diep religieuze vrouw, die tegelijkertijd de gangbare, vaak via het christelijk geloof gelegitimeerde verhoudingen tussen de sexen in haar tijd volledig doorbrak. Ze was een eenvoudig boerenmeisje dat een doorslaggevende rol wist te vervullen in de strijd tussen de Engelsen en de Fransen, die op dat moment al 94 jaar woedde.

Historicus Guus Pikkemaat wist er weer een sprankelend boek over te schrijven, wat bovendien veel verheldert over het bijzondere tijdsgewricht waarin ze leefde.

Pippidi, A.
Visions of the Ottoman World in Renaissance Europe
Key protagonists in these debates included Erasmus, Luther and Machiavelli. Today we might call them intellectuals, yet mostly they did not travel, and direct contact with the Ottoman Empire was scarce or nonexistent. Nor were they well disposed to its predecessor, the Byzantine Empire, whose fall presented them with an intellectual conundrum: how were they to explain the irresistible advance of the Ottomans across the Balkans and the inability of Christian Europe to hold the line? They also felt compelled to incorporate this significant new threat into their vision of a world order, to rationalise it, to unravel its origins. These discussions spawned a common market of ideas in the fifteenth and sixteenth century, as Europeans debated and represented the Ottoman threat. Readers of this book will find many echoes in Pippidi's analysis of today's debates about the relationship of Turkey with Europe and the struggle to accommodate the descendants of the Ottomans in our midst.

Powell, A. K.
Depositions. Scenes from the Late Medieval Church and the Modern Museum
From late medieval reenactments of the Deposition from the Cross to Sol Lewitt's Buried Cube, Depositions is about taking down images and about images that anticipate being taken down. Foretelling their own depositions, as well as their re-elevations in contexts far from those in which they were made, the images studied in this book reveal themselves to be untimely--no truer to their first appearance than to their later reappearances.

In Depositions, Amy Powell makes the case that late medieval paintings and ritual reenactments of the Deposition from the Cross not only picture the deposition of Christ (the Imago Dei) but also allegorize the deposition of the image as such and, in so doing, prefigure the lowering of "dead images" during the Protestant Reformation. Late medieval pre-figurations of Reformation iconoclasm anticipate, in turn, the repeated "deaths" of art since the advent of photography: that is the premise of the vignettes devoted to twentieth-century works of art that conclude each chapter of this book. In these vignettes, images that once stood in late medieval churches now find themselves among works of art from the more recent past with which they share certain formal characteristics.

These surreal encounters compel us to reckon with affinities between images from different times and places. Turning pseudomorphosis--formal resemblance where there is no similarity of artistic intent -- on its head, Powell explores what happens to our understanding of historically and conceptually distant works of art when they look alike.

Power, Amanda
Roger Bacon and the Defence of Christendom
The English Franciscan, Roger Bacon (ca.1214-92), holds a controversial but important position in the development of modern science. He has been portrayed as an isolated figure, at odds with his influential order and ultimately condemned by it. This major study, the first in English for nearly sixty years, offers a provocative new interpretation of both Bacon and his environment. Amanda Power argues that his famous writings for the papal curia were the product of his critical engagement with the objectives of the Franciscan order and the reform agenda of the thirteenth-century church. Fearing that the apocalypse was at hand and Christians unprepared, Bacon explored radical methods for defending, renewing and promulgating the faith within Christendom and beyond. Read in this light, his work indicates the breadth of imagination possible in a time of expanding geographical and intellectual horizons.

Pranger, Burcht
God (1000-1300) en andere essays over literaire aspecten van het christendom
In het vroege en middeleeuwse christendom bestaat een permanente spanning tussen de vaste genres van de antieke retorica en lossere literaire taal van de Bijbel. In deze essaybundel wordt dit spanningsveld onderzocht. Artikelen over onder meer Augustinus, Gregorius de Grote, Beda en Bernard van Clairvaux tonen aan hoe dood, geweld en liefde niet het literaire privilege zijn van het moderne (Romantische) subject. Wel heeft in de loop der tijd dat Romantische subject zich vermengd met het religieuze. Burcht Pranger demonstreert hoe de moderne lezer methodisch te werk kan gaan om het literaire gehalte van oudere religieuze teksten op waarde te schatten.

The Martyred Inquisitor: The Life and Cult of Peter of Verona (+1252)
Peter Martyr was one of the central Dominican saints of the thirteenth century, in some cases eclipsing Dominic himself. Born in Verona around 1206 to those with Cathar sympathies, he became a convert to Catholicism. As one of the first generations of Dominicans, he represents aspects of their primitive history both as a spellbinding preacher and as one of the earliest and most famous papal inquisitors. In 1252, shortly after his official appointment to the post of inquisitor for Lombardy, Peter was assassinated at the hands of a cabal of Milanese heretics. That there is no modern monograph on Peter, represents a considerable lacuna in the study of medieval saints. This work therefore fills a very important gap, in both thirteenth century hagiographical studies, and studies of the interrelationship of heresy and imperial politics in the mid-thirteenth century.The first half of the book is a systematic study of the stages in the life, miracles and posthumous cult of Peter of Verona. Part One deals with many controversial issues of Peter's life, such as his role in the growth of the Dominican order and related confraternities in Lombardy and Tuscany, his status as papal inquisitor and his preaching. Part Two explores the cult of Peter Martyr. The brief time which elapsed between death and canonization makes Peter Martyr an especially interesting case in the field of cult study as for him, life led immediately to cult: a cult dominated by those who knew him personally.The second half of the book is a translation into English of the major primary sources concerning Peter. These will be of interest to students of papal canonization, the Dominican order, the Inquisition, hagiography, and local history, van euro 91.00

Quinlan-McGrath, Mary
Influences: Art, Optics, and Astrology in the Italian Renaissance
Today few would think of astronomy and astrology as fields related to theology. Fewer still would know that physically absorbing planetary rays was once considered to have medical and psychological effects. But this was the understanding of light radiation held by certain natural philosophers of early modern Europe, and that, argues Mary Quinlan-McGrath, was why educated people of the Renaissance commissioned artworks centered on astrological themes and practices. "Influences" is the first book to reveal how important Renaissance artworks were designed to be not only beautiful but also - perhaps even primarily - functional. From the fresco cycles at Caprarola, to the Vatican's Sala dei Pontefici, to the Villa Farnesina, these great works were commissioned to selectively capture and then transmit celestial radiation, influencing the bodies and minds of their audiences. Quinlan-McGrath examines the sophisticated logic behind these theories and practices and, along the way, sheds light on early creation theory; the relationship between astrology and natural theology; and the protochemistry, physics, and mathematics of rays. An original and intellectually stimulating study, "Influences" adds a new dimension to the understanding of aesthetics among Renaissance patrons and a new meaning to the seductive powers of art.

The Making of the Monastic Community of Fulda, C.744 - C.900
The monastic community of Fulda was one of the most powerful institutions in early medieval Europe. This book traces the development of the community from its foundation in the 740s over one and a half centuries, a period richly documented by a variety of texts and archaeological remains. These sources reveal how Fulda's success forced the monks to rethink their goals and the ways in which they sought to achieve them. Its close connection to the Carolingian royal court also makes Fulda a fascinating case study of how local events influenced life in the palace and vice versa. The importance of Fulda and the rich array of sources associated with it have long been recognised, but this is the first full study, bringing together theology, architectural history and archaeology. The result is a vivid picture of life in this monastery and also in early medieval religious communities in general.

De ontdekking van de Middeleeuwen, geschiedenis van een illusie
De ontdekking van de Middeleeuwen is een baanbrekend boek over de manier waarop men in Duitsland, Engeland, Frankrijk en Italie een eigen verleden heeft geconstrueerd. En het laat zien waarom de Nederlandse blik op de eigen geschiedenis volkomen anders was dan die van de ons omringende landen.

Waren de Middeleeuwen een tijd van hechte gemeenschap en ridderlijke trouw of een tijd van barbaars geweld en ruwe onderdrukking? Een tijd om te vergeten of een tijd om naar terug te verlangen? Tolkiens Lord of the Rings of Verhoevens Flesh and Blood? Sinds de Renaissance roept het beeld van de Middeleeuwen sterk wisselende emoties op. Afkeer en idealisering wisselen elkaar af tot op de dag van vandaag. Dit boek brengt die wisselende waardering van de Middeleeuwen in kaart en onderzoekt waarom de Middeleeuwen nooit een vaste plaats gevonden hebben in het collectieve geheugen van Europa.

Recanati, M.
Commentary on the Daily Prayers
2 Vols: latin translation of Flavius Mithradates, Hebrew text and english translation. Introduction and annotations by Giacomo Corazzol

The Commentary on the Daily Prayers was the last effort undertaken by Recanati at the end of his life. In this book he pursued the interest that had also characterized his previous work, that is to use kabbalah as a hermeneutic device demonstrating how the measure of halakic norms coincides with the measure of the creation itself. This identification was aimed at restoring Judaism to its wholeness after the blows inflicted upon it by rationalistic philosophy. In Recanati's hands, the liturgy and its texts become a mosaic whose single tesserae (their words and verses), rendered opaque by everyday recital, are given new radiance by being envisaged as mises en abime of the mysteries connected to the sefirot and the celestial world.

Recanati's work deeply influenced Pico's understanding of the kabbalah, particularly as regards the structure of the upper merkavah, its functioning, and its influence upon the creation - a model into which Pico tried to fit Christian theology, Neoplatonic theurgy, and other traditions as well.

Beitrage zur Kulturgeschichte der Gelehrten im spaten Mittelalter
Gelehrte zeichnen sich nicht nur durch das Wissen aus, uber das sie verfugen, sondern ebenso durch besondere Arten zu denken, zu argumentieren und zu leben. Sie pragen einen eigenen Habitus aus, der ihnen in ihrer Umwelt gleichermassen Respekt verschafft und Anlass zu Kritik bietet. Auch wenn es bereits in den Jahrhunderten zuvor durchaus gelehrte Einzelpersonen gab, erlangt der kulturelle Typus des Gelehrten mit dem Aufschwung der wissenschaftlichen Schulen wahrend des 12. Jahrhunderts eine Bedeutung, die er vormals zuletzt in der Antike gehabt hatte. Der Konstanzer Arbeitskreis versammelte wahrend einer seiner Tagungen die einschlagigen Experten der spatmittelalterlichen Gelehrtenkultur und legt nun einen Band vor, der die lebensweltliche Bedeutung des hoheren Wissens dokumentiert. Die Beitrage behandeln das literarische und ikonographische Bild von Gelehrten, ihr Familienleben, ihren Bucherbesitz und ihre Patronage-Strategien. Die Lebensentwurfe christlicher werden mit denen judischer und muslimischer Gelehrter verglichen.

Petrarch. The Forgotten Genius
Not yet published

Who was Petrarch? For five centuries Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374) was the most famous and influential poet in Europe. In more recent times, he has been acclaimed as the Father of Humanism. But so little today is known about the man and his writing. Despite being the first to label the Middle Ages the 'Dark Ages', Petrarch was himself closer to the ethos of the medieval than the innovative new thinking of the Renaissance. He chose to look back to the classical era by writing his major work - an epic poem called Africa - in Latin rather than in the modish vernacular of his native Tuscan.That immersion in the culture of antiquity partly explains why Petrarch's star has waned. Despite his genius, he is no longer fashionable. But he was in other ways a man defined by paradox, and difficult to pin down. Pious and devout, yet an inspiration to secular humanists; unrequited courtly lover, yet also a sexual predator on young women in the murky, twisting streets of papal Avignon; and a proud Florentine who envied his compatriot Dante, abandoning his homeland for the foreign culture of Provence: Petrarch was all of these, and more. Despite his fame, Petrarch's was above all a life scarred by tragedy. His best known work, the "Rime", was inspired by his passion for Laura, his life's love, who succumbed to the Black Death, leaving him bereft. In her elegant new biography, the first for many years, Barbara Reynolds reclaims Petrarch as writer, lover and statesman: a medieval man compellingly relevant to the modern age in all his tastes and talents.

Early Arabic Christian Contributions to Trinitarian Theology: The Development of the Doctrine of the Trinity in an Islamic Milieu
The doctrine of the Trinity is the keystone of Christian faith and teaching, yet most of the secondary accounts on the development of this crucial doctrine do not extend beyond Nicaea and pay scant attention to vital cultural traffic. In this volume, the author examines the exposition of the doctrine of the Trinity in a set of texts from key Arabic Christian thinkers from the eighth and ninth centuries and demonstrates that fresh thinking of this cornerstone doctrine occurred in the new context of a regnant Islamic culture; in this context, Christian theologians discovered the salience of the Nicene doctrine while engaging a new religious partner. The author provides an overlooked angle on the history of Trinitarian theology and brings attention to several profound Christian figures rarely found in Western accounts.

"In this carefully researched study, Thomas W. Ricks examines oft-neglected eighth and ninth century Arabic Christian defenses of their Christological and Trinitarian beliefs against Islamic accusations of polytheism. This work is an important contribution to both the history of Christian theology and the contemporary Christian-Muslim dialogue."- John P. Galvin, The Catholic University of America

Magic and Impotence in the Middle Ages
Magic and Impotence in the Middle Ages investigates the common medieval belief that magic could cause impotence, focusing particularly on the period 1150-1450. The subject has never been studied in detail before, but there is a surprisingly large amount of information about it in four kinds of source: confessors' manuals; medical compendia that discussed many illnesses; commentaries on canon law; and theological commentaries on the Sentences of Peter Lombard. Although most historians of medieval culture focus on only one or two of these kinds of source, a broader comparison reveals that medieval writers held surprisingly diverse opinions about what magic was, how it worked, and whether it was ever legitimate to use it. Medieval discussions of magically caused impotence also include a great deal of information about magical practices, most of which have not been studied before. In particular, these sources say a great deal about popular magic, a subject which has been particularly neglected by historians because the evidence is scanty and difficult to interpret. Magic and Impotence makes new information about popular magic available for the first time.Magic and Impotence also examines why the authors of legal, medical, and theological texts were so interested in popular magical practices relating to impotence. It therefore uses magically caused impotence as a case-study to explore the relationship between elite and popular culture. In particular, this study emphasizes the importance of the thirteenth-century pastoral reform movement, which sought to enforce more orthodox religious practices. Historians have often noted that this movement brought churchmen into contact with popular beliefs, but this is the first study to demonstrate the profound effect it had on theological and legal ideas about magic.

Rider, C.
Magic and Religion in Medieval England
From today’s perspective it is hard to comprehend just how complex the relationship was between religion and magic in the Middle Ages. Many unofficial rituals and beliefs existed alongside ones sanctioned by the Church. Educated clergy condemned some as magic, but it wasn’t always easy to do this because many magical and superstitious practices employed religious language, rituals or objects. Charms recited over the sick to cure illnesses often invoked God and the saints; spells for love and other purposes might use consecrated substances such as the Eucharist. The people reaching for them could even justify their actions by citing biblical precedent.

In this book Catherine Rider unearths previously unpublished evidence and new information concerning the widespread use of magical practices and the clergy’s response. She asks how educated churchmen, when faced with a wide range of popular religious practices, decided which were acceptable and which were magic. How did they persuade others of their views?

This book traces the change in the Church’s attitude to vernacular forms of magic from the turbulent era of King John to the time of Henry VIII and the Dissolution of the Monasteries. These three centuries brought educated clergy into closer contact than ever before with unofficial religious practices and prompted them to draw up more precise guidelines on how to distinguish magic from legitimate religion. Magic and Religion in Medieval England provides a detailed picture of religious and lay life, including clerical education and pastoral care.

Catherine Rider is Lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Exeter. She is author of Magic and Impotence in the Middle Ages (2006).

The Crusades, Christianity, and Islam
The Crusades were penitential war-pilgrimages fought in the Levant and the eastern Mediterranean, as well as in North Africa, Spain, Portugal, Poland, the Baltic region, Hungary, the Balkans, and Western Europe. Beginning in the eleventh century and ending as late as the eighteenth, these holy wars were waged against Muslims and other enemies of the Church, enlisting generations of laymen and laywomen to fight for the sake of Christendom. Crusading features prominently in today's religio-political hostilities, yet the perceptions of these wars held by Arab nationalists, pan-Islamists, and many in the West have been deeply distorted by the language and imagery of nineteenth-century European imperialism. With this book, Jonathan Riley-Smith returns to the actual story of the Crusades, explaining why and where they were fought and how deeply their narratives and symbolism became embedded in popular Catholic thought and devotional life. From this history, Riley-Smith traces the legacy of the Crusades into modern times, specifically within the attitudes of European imperialists and colonialists and within the beliefs of twentieth-century Muslims. Europeans fashioned an interpretation of the Crusades from the writings of Walter Scott and a French contemporary, Joseph-Francois Michaud. Scott portrayed Islamic societies as forward-thinking, while casting Christian crusaders as culturally backward and often morally corrupt. Michaud, in contrast, glorified crusading, and his followers used its imagery to illuminate imperial adventures. These depictions have had a profound influence on contemporary Western opinion, as well as on Muslim attitudes toward their past and present.

The Reformation of Suffering. Pastoral Theology and Lay Piety in Late Medieval and Early Modern Germany
Protestant reformers sought to effect a radical change in the way their contemporaries understood and coped with the suffering of body and soul that were so prominent in the early modern period. The reformers did so because they believed that many traditional approaches to suffering were not sufficiently Christian--that is, they thought these approaches were unbiblical. The Reformation of Suffering examines the Protestant reformation of suffering and shows how it was a central part of the larger Protestant effort to reform church and society. Despite its importance, no other text has directly examined this reformation of suffering. This book investigates the history of Christian reflection on suffering and consolation in the Latin West and places the Protestant reformation campaign within this larger context, paying close attention to important continuities and discontinuities between Catholic and Protestant traditions.

Focusing especially on Wittenberg Christianity, The Reformation of Suffering examines the genesis of Protestant doctrines of suffering among the leading reformers and then traces the transmission of these doctrines from the reformers to the common clergy. It also examines the reception of these ideas by lay people. The text underscores the importance of consolation in early modern Protestantism and seeks to challenge a scholarly trend that has emphasized the themes of discipline and control in Wittenberg Christianity. It shows how Protestant clergymen and burghers could be remarkably creative and resourceful as they sought to convey solace to one another in the midst of suffering and misfortune. The Protestant reformation of suffering had a profound impact on church and society in the early modern period and contributed significantly to the shape of the modern world.

The Franciscans in the Middle Ages
St Francis of Assisi is one of the most admired figures of the Middle Ages - and one of the most important in the Christian church, modelling his life on the literal observance of the Gospel and recovering an emphasis on the poverty experienced by Jesus Christ. From 1217 Francis sent communities of friars throughout Christendom and launched missions to several countries, including India and China. The movement soon became established in most cities and several large towns, and, enjoying close relations with the popes, its followers were ideal instruments for the propagation of the reforms of the Fourth Lateran Council of 1215. They quickly became part of the landscape of medieval life and made their influence felt throughout society. This book explores the first 250 years of the order's history and charts its rapid growth, development, pastoral ministry, educational organisation, missionary endeavour, internal tensions and divisions. Intended for both the general and more specialist reader, it offers a complete survey of the Franciscan Order. Dr Michael Robson is a Fellow and Director of Studies in Theology at St Edmund's College, Cambridge.

The Cambridge Companion to Francis of Assisi
Francis of Assisi (1181/82-1226) was one of the most vibrant and colourful personalities in the Middle Ages. The life of this remarkable reformer of the medieval Church was celebrated in art, drama, poetry, music, the new vernacular literature and architecture. His ideal was to enter into a restorative and enriching relationship with Jesus Christ, whom he wished to imitate in the most perfect manner, a direct and immediate goal which captured the contemporary imagination. This Companion explores the life of Francis of Assisi and his enduring legacy throughout the centuries. The first part concentrates on his life and works whilst the second explores the way in which his heritage influenced the apostolic activities of his followers in the century following his death. This book is a must-read for students and scholars of Church history, as well as medieval social and intellectual history.

Anselm on Freedom
Can human beings be free and responsible if there is a God? Anselm of Canterbury, the first Christian philosopher to propose that human beings have a really robust free will, offers viable answers to questions which have plagued religious people for at least two thousand years: If divine grace cannot be merited and is necessary to save fallen humanity, how can there be any decisive role for individual free choice to play? If God knows today what you are going to choose tomorrow, then when tomorrow comes you have to choose what God foreknew, so how can your choice be free? If human beings must have the option to choose between good and evil in order to be morally responsible, must God be able to choose evil? Anselm answers these questions with a sophisticated theory of free will which defends both human freedom and the sovereignty and goodness of God.

Roiz, Javier
A Vigilant Society. Jewish Thought and the State in Medieval Spain
A Vigilant Society presents a provocative hypothesis that argues that Western society as we know it emerged from the soil of Jewish intellectual advances in the thirteenth century, especially those formulated on the Iberian Peninsula. A paradigmatic shift began to occur, one that abandoned the pre-Gothic Sephardic wisdom found in, for example, the writings of Maimonides in favor of what author Javier Roiz calls the 'vigilant society'. This model embraces a conception of politics that includes a radical privatization of an individual's interior life and-especially as adopted and adapted in later centuries by Roman Catholic and Calvinist thinkers-is marked by a style of politics that accepts the dominance of power and control as given. Vigilant society laid the foundation for the Western understanding of politics and its institutions and remains pervasive in today's world.

Rose, E.
Ritual Memory. The Apocryphal Acts and Liturgical Commemoration in the Early Medieval West (c.500-1215)
Ritual Memory brings together two areas of study which have hitherto rarely been studied in comparison: liturgy and the apocryphal Acts of the apostles. The book gives an analysis of the liturgical celebration of the apostles in the medieval West and examines the incorporation of the apocrypha in practices of ritual commemoration. It reveals the role that liturgy played in the transmission of the apocryphal Acts and visualises the way these narrative traditions developed and changed through their incorporation into a ritual context.

The result is a dynamic picture of the ritual reception of the extra-canonical Acts in the Latin Middle Ages, where the apocryphal legends about the apostolic past were approached as memorable traditions on the origins of Christianity.

Els Rose, took her doctoral degree (2001, Utrecht University) with a thesis on language and liturgy in Merovingian Gaul. She teaches Medieval Latin at the same University, and has published recently on the apocrypha in medieval religious culture.

Rowe, N.
The Jew, the Cathedral, and the Medieval City. Synagoga and Ecclesia in the Thirteenth Century
In the thirteenth century, sculptures of Synagoga and Ecclesia - paired female personifications of the Synagogue defeated and the Church triumphant - became a favored motif on cathedral facades in France and Germany. Throughout the centuries leading up to this era, the Jews of northern Europe prospered financially and intellectually, a trend that ran counter to the long-standing Christian conception of Jews as relics of the pre-history of the Church. In The Jew, the Cathedral and the Medieval City, Nina Rowe examines the sculptures as defining elements in the urban Jewish-Christian encounter. She locates the roots of the Synagoga-Ecclesia motif in antiquity and explores the theme's public manifestations at the cathedrals of Reims, Bamberg and Strasbourg, considering each example in relation to local politics and culture. Ultimately, she demonstrates that royal and ecclesiastical policies to restrain the religious, social and economic lives of Jews in the early thirteenth century found a material analog in lovely renderings of a downtrodden Synagoga, placed in the public arena of the city square.

Preachers of the Italian Ghetto
By the mid-sixteenth century, Jews in the cities of Italy were being crowded into compulsory ghettos as a result of the oppressive policies of Pope Paul IV and his successors. The sermons of Jewish preachers during this period provide a remarkable vantage point from which to view the early modern Jewish social and cultural landscape. In this eloquent collection, six leading scholars of Italian Jewish history reveal the important role of these preachers: men who served as a bridge between the ghetto and the Christian world outside, between old and new conventions, and between elite and popular modes of thought. The story of how they reflected and shaped the culture of their listeners, who felt the pressure of cramped urban life as well as of political, economic, and religious persecution, is finally beginning to be told. Through the words of the Italian ghetto preachers, we discover a richly textured panorama of Jewish life more than 400 years ago.

Ryan, M.A.
A Kingdom of Stargazers: Astrology and Authority in the Late Medieval Crown of Aragon
Astrology in the Middle Ages was considered a branch of the magical arts, one informed by Jewish and Muslim scientific knowledge in Muslim Spain. As such it was deeply troubling to some Church authorities. Using the stars and planets to divine the future ran counter to the orthodox Christian notion that human beings have free will, and some clerical authorities argued that it almost certainly entailed the summoning of spiritual forces considered diabolical.

We know that occult beliefs and practices became widespread in the later Middle Ages, but there is much about the phenomenon that we do not understand. For instance, how deeply did occult beliefs penetrate courtly culture and what exactly did those in positions of power hope to gain by interacting with the occult?

In A Kingdom of Stargazers, Michael A. Ryan examines the interest in astrology in the Iberian kingdom of Aragon, where ideas about magic and the occult were deeply intertwined with notions of power, authority, and providence.

Safran, Janina M.
Defining Boundaries in Al-Andalus: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Islamic Iberia
Al-Andalus, the Arabic name for the medieval Islamic state in Iberia, endured for over 750 years following the Arab and Berber conquest of Hispania in 711. While the popular perception of al-Andalus is that of a land of religious tolerance and cultural cooperation, the fact is that we know relatively little about how Muslims governed Christians and Jews in al-Andalus and about social relations among Muslims, Christians, and Jews. In Defining Boundaries in al-Andalus, Janina M. Safran takes a close look at the structure and practice of Muslim political and legal-religious authority and offers a rare look at intercommunal life in Iberia during the first three centuries of Islamic rule.

Safran makes creative use of a body of evidence that until now has gone largely untapped by historians: the writings and opinions of Andalusi and Maghribi jurists during the Umayyad dynasty. These sources enable her to bring to life a society undergoing dramatic transformation. Obvious differences between conquerors and conquered and Muslims and non-Muslims became blurred over time by transculturation, intermarriage, and conversion. Safran examines ample evidence of intimate contact between individuals of different religious communities and of legal-juridical accommodation to develop an argument about how legal-religious authorities interpreted the social contract between the Muslim regime and the Christian and Jewish populations. Providing a variety of examples of boundary-testing and negotiation and bringing judges, jurists, and their legal opinions and texts into the narrative of Andalusi history, Safran deepens our understanding of the politics of Umayyad rule, makes Islamic law tangibly social, and renders intercommunal relations vividly personal.

Sarris, P.
Empires of Faith: The Fall of Rome to the Rise of Islam, 500-700
Drawing upon the latest historical and archaeological research, Dr Peter Sarris provides a panoramic account of the history of Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Near East from the fall of Rome to the rise of Islam. The formation of a new social and economic order in western Europe in the fifth, sixth, and seventh centuries, and the ascendancy across the West of a new culture of military lordship, are placed firmly in the context of on-going connections and influence radiating outwards from the surviving Eastern Roman Empire, ruled from the great imperial capital of Constantinople. The East Roman (or 'Byzantine') Emperor Justinian's attempts to revive imperial fortunes, restore the empire's power in the West, and face down Constantinople's great superpower rival, the Sasanian Empire of Persia, are charted, as too are the ways in which the escalating warfare between Rome and Persia paved the way for the development of new concepts of 'holy war', the emergence of Islam, and the Arab conquests of the Near East. Processes of religious and cultural change are explained through examination of social, economic, and military upheavals, and the formation of early medieval European society is placed in a broader context of changes that swept across the world of Eurasia from Manchuria to the Rhine. Warfare and plague, holy men and kings, emperors, shahs, caliphs, and peasants all play their part in a compelling narrative suited to specialist, student, and general readership alike.

Schaefer, Mary M.
Women in Pastoral Office The Story of Santa Prassede, Rome
Through a study of the church of Santa Prassede, Mary M. Schaefer offers a compelling examination of the ''golden ages'' for women active in ecclesial ministries, critically measuring feminist claims and providing evidence contrary to the official Roman position that women have never been ordained in the Catholic Church.

The ninth-century church of Santa Prassede has been studied intensively in recent years, yet no scholar has yet recognized the significance of the balanced male and female imagery: both men and women disciples, Peter and Paul as family friends, Praxedes and her sister as house church leaders in the post-apostolic period assisted by bishop Pius I, and Pope Paschal's mother Theodora episcopa, for example. Praxedes' identification as ''presbytera'' by a Roman priest-historian in 1655 and by the Benedictine prior of the church in 1725 prompts analysis of women's ordination rites in churches of East and West.

Santa Prassede preserves one of the largest intact programs of church decoration in Rome up to 1200. Schaefer investigates its scriptural and liturgical sources, and, in turn, reexamines its foundation myth. With the story of the church, Schaefer provides a detailed study of women in pastoral office (especially diaconas, presbyteras, and episcopal abbesses) from the first through twelfth centuries in the West. Women in Pastoral Office also shows how the liturgy as well as the vita of Praxedes and her sister Pudentiana (whose fourth century church is located down the hill) shaped this outstanding commission of the builder, Pope Paschal I (817-824).

Schwartz, Daniel
Aquinas on Friendship
Daniel Schwartz examines the views on friendship of the great medieval philosopher Thomas Aquinas. For Aquinas friendship is the ideal type of relationship that rational beings should cultivate. Schwartz argues that Aquinas fundamentally revises some of the main features of Aristotle's paradigmatic account of friendship so as to accommodate the case of friendship between radically unequal beings: man and God. As a result, Aquinas presents a broader view of friendship than Aristotle's, allowing for a higher extent of disagreement. lack of mutual understanding, and inequality between friends.

The Poor and the Perfect. The Rise of Learning in the Franciscan Order, 1209–1310
One of the enduring ironies of medieval history is the fact that a group of Italian lay penitents, begging in sackcloths, led by a man who called himself simple and ignorant, turned in a short time into a very popular and respectable order, featuring cardinals and university professors among its ranks. Within a century of its foundation, the Order of Friars Minor could claim hundreds of permanent houses, schools, and libraries across Europe; indeed, alongside the Dominicans, they attracted the best minds and produced many outstanding scholars who were at the forefront of Western philosophical and religious thought.

Shatzmiller, Joseph
Cultural Exchange: Jews, Christians, and Art in the Medieval Marketplace
Demonstrating that similarities between Jewish and Christian art in the Middle Ages were more than coincidental, Cultural Exchange meticulously combines a wide range of sources to show how Jews and Christians exchanged artistic and material culture. Joseph Shatzmiller focuses on communities in northern Europe, Iberia, and other Mediterranean societies where Jews and Christians coexisted for centuries, and he synthesizes the most current research to describe the daily encounters that enabled both societies to appreciate common artistic values. Detailing the transmission of cultural sensibilities in the medieval money market and the world of Jewish money lenders, this book examines objects pawned by peasants and humble citizens, sacred relics exchanged by the clergy as security for loans, and aesthetic goods given up by the Christian well-to-do who required financial assistance. The work also explores frescoes and decorations likely painted by non-Jews in medieval and early modern Jewish homes located in Germanic lands, and the ways in which Jews hired Christian artists and craftsmen to decorate Hebrew prayer books and create liturgical objects. Conversely, Christians frequently hired Jewish craftsmen to produce liturgical objects used in Christian churches. With rich archival documentation, Cultural Exchange sheds light on the social and economic history of the creation of Jewish and Christian art, and expands the general understanding of cultural exchange in brand-new ways.

Shepard, J. (ed)
The Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire c. 500-1492
Byzantium lasted a thousand years, ruled to the end by self-styled 'emperors of the Romans'. It underwent kaleidoscopic territorial and structural changes, yet recovered repeatedly from disaster: even after the near-impregnable Constantinople fell in 1204, variant forms of the empire reconstituted themselves. The Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire tells the story, tracing political and military events, religious controversies and economic change. It offers clear, authoritative chapters on the main events and periods, with more detailed chapters on particular outlying regions, neighbouring powers or aspects of Byzantium. With aids such as a glossary, an alternative place-name table and references to English translations of sources, it will be valuable as an introduction. However, it also offers stimulating new approaches and important new findings, making it essential reading for postgraduates and for specialists.

Plague. A Very Short Introduction
Throughout history plague has been the cause of many major catastrophes. It was responsible for the Black Death of 1348 and the Great Plague of London in 1665, and for devastating epidemics much earlier and much later, in the Mediterranean in the sixth century, and in China and India between the 1890s and 1920s. Today, it has become a metaphor for other epidemic disasters which appear to threaten us, but plague itself has never been eradicated. In this Very Short Introduction, Paul Slack explores the historical impact of plague over the centuries, looking at the ways in which it has been interpreted, and the powerful images it has left behind in art and literature. Examining what plague meant for those who suffered from it, and how governments began to fight against it, he demonstrates the impact plague has had on modern notions of public health and how it has shaped our history.

Smail, Daniel Lord
The Consumption of Justice. Emotions, Publicity, and Legal Culture in Marseille, 1264-1423
In the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the ideas and practices of justice in Europe underwent significant change as procedures were transformed and criminal and civil caseloads grew apace. Drawing on the rich judicial records of Marseille from the years 1264 to 1423, especially records of civil litigation, this book approaches the courts of law from the perspective of the users of the courts (the consumers of justice) and explains why men and women chose to invest resources in the law.

Daniel Lord Smail shows that the courts were quickly adopted as a public stage on which litigants could take revenge on their enemies. Even as the new legal system served the interest of royal or communal authority, it also provided the consumers of justice with a way to broadcast their hatreds and social sanctions to a wider audience and negotiate their own community standing in the process. The emotions that had driven bloodfeuds and other forms of customary vengeance thus never went away, and instead were fully incorporated into the new procedures.

The Taymouth Hours. Stories and the Construction of the Self in Late Medieval England
The Taymouth Hours is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic English manuscripts of the later medieval period. It features a remarkable programme of marginal imagery of secular and religious narratives and is replete with portraits of crowned women. Yet the circumstances of the manuscript's commission and the identity of the royal owner have remained elusive. In this, the first comprehensive study of the manuscript, Kathryn A. Smith argues that the Taymouth Hours was commissioned in 1331 by Philippa of Hainault, queen of Edward III, for Edward's sister, the 13-year old Eleanor of Woodstock, on the occasion of her betrothal to Reinald II of Guelders. Through detailed analysis of the manuscript's programme, particularly the relationship between its marginal imagery and the devotional texts which they border, and by embedding the manuscript within the dynamic context of historical, political, religious, cultural and artistic developments in early 14th-century northern Europe, this groundbreaking study explores the ways in which the stories pictured in the Taymouth Hours shaped and affirmed the self of their royal female viewer.

(A DVD of the complete manuscript is also included.)

Om de hele wereld. Inleiding in de franciscaanse spiritualiteit
Terwijl de gemeenschap van de minderbroeders in ons land aan het krimpen is, wordt de franciscaanse spiritualiteit zelf juist gekenmerkt door groei. Als we het leven van Franciscus van Assisi volgen, zien we dat de gemeenschap die hij met God ervaart vanaf het moment van zijn bekering, zich steeds uitbreidt naar nieuwe, meer omvattende terreinen. Tegelijkertijd is deze uitbreiding ook een verdieping naar steeds innerlijker lagen van zichzelf en van de schepping. Aanvankelijk is Franciscus vooral met zichzelf bezig, op zoek naar het leven dat God met hem persoonlijk voor heeft. Maar gaandeweg ontdekt hij dat de gemeenschap die hij met God ervaart gedeeld wordt door anderen. Eerst deelt hij de gemeenschap met melaatsen en met Christus, dan krijgt hij broeders en zusters die net als hij evangelisch willen leven. Later ontdekt hij dat de levende en zelfs levenloze natuur getuigt van de aanwezigheid van God in zijn omgeving. En de mensen die hem in de wereld willen ondersteunen en volgen, delen evenzeer als de religieuzen in dezelfde goddelijke gemeenschap. Zelfs moslims, die net als Franciscus hun leven aan God willen geven, worden door hem gezien als broeders in de ene Heer. De gemeenschap die Franciscus met God ervaart groeit als het ware in kringen van herkenning, kringen die uitdijen totdat zij de gehele schepping omvatten, inclusief de dood, die bij het leven hoort. Het volgen van deze groeiende gemeenschap is het doel van dit boek.

Wondtekenen, wondertekenen. Over de stigmatisatie van Franciscus
Franciscus wilde Jezus niet begrijpen of interpreteren, maar wilde Hem volgen op letterlijke, lichamelijke wijze. Hij verliet de wereld om kerken te herstellen en melaatsen barmhartigheid te bewijzen, hij trok zich terug om in gebed bij God te verwijlen en hij trok de wereld door om de blijde boodschap te verkondigen. Aan het eind van zijn leven werd deze lichamelijke navolging van het leven van Christus als het ware beantwoord door de verschijning van de vijf kruiswonden (stigmata) in het lichaam van de heilige.

In deze bundel buigen acht auteurs zich over het fenomeen van de stigmatisatie. Heeft die echt plaatsgevonden of is het alleen maar een verhaal? Is er sprake van een wonder of van een vorm van hysterie? Is het een teken van heiligheid of wijst het op een verlangen naar sensatie? Hoe hebben mensen de stigmata geinterpreteerd en wat voor betekenis zou het fenomeen voor ons kunnen hebben? Allemaal vragen die cirkelen rond een en dezelfde grondvraag: laten we ons in met wat ons verteld is - waarbij we het risico lopen zelf verwond te raken - of blijven we op een afstandje staan kijken naar dit wonderlijke verschijnsel?

De weg van Eckhart
Van de middeleeuwse Duitse predikant en pastor Eckhart (rond 1300) zijn preken en traktaten bewaard die alle gaan over een thema dat zijn leven beheerst: de werkelijkheid van mijn bestaan in God. Aan de oorsprong van die fascinatie staat een mystieke beleving. Van de waarheid van zijn beleving is Eckhart zo overtuigd, dat die voor hem boven alle andere wegen naar godskennis uitgaat. Het is zijn hartstocht geweest om de lezers van zijn preken en geschriften tot hetzelfde inzicht te brengen. Ook hij kan de diepte en omvang van het geheim van de werkelijkheid nooit op ons overdragen. Wel kan hij ons de weg wijzen en telkens weer in de buurt brengen van het geheim dat zijn leven vervulde, in een overvloed aan beelden.

In dit boek komen aan de hand van korte teksten de leidende inzichten van Eckhart naar voren. Ton van der Stap voorziet deze van een verhelderend en spiritueel commentaar.

Stethatos, Niketas
The Life of Saint Symeon the New Theologian
Today the Byzantine mystic, writer, and monastic leader Symeon the New Theologian (ca. 949 to 1022 ce) is considered a saint by the Orthodox Church and revered as one of its most influential spiritual thinkers. But in his own time a cloud of controversy surrounded him and the suspicion of heresy tainted his reputation long afterward. The Life was written more than thirty years after Symeon's death by his disciple and apologist the theologian Niketas Stethatos, who also edited all of Symeon's spiritual writings. An unusually valuable piece of Byzantine hagiography, it not only presents compelling descriptions of Symeon's visions, mystical inspiration, and role as a monastic founder, but also provides vivid glimpses into the often bitter and unpleasantly conflicted politics of monasticism and the construction of sanctity and orthodoxy at the zenith of the medieval Byzantine Empire. Although the many volumes of Symeon's spiritual writings are now readily available in English, the present translation makes the Life accessible to English readers for the first time. It is based on an authoritative edition of the Greek.

Die Ausbreitung des lateinischen Christentums auf europaischem Boden war ein Vorgang von ungeheurer Dynamik und Tragweite. Ihm widmet sich 2013 eine grosse kunst- und kulturhistorische Ausstellung in Paderborn. Der zweibandige Katalog zur Ausstellung prasentiert ein Panorama hochkaratiger Exponate: Fruhe Zeugen christlicher Kunst und Architektur, gelehrter Schriftlichkeit und Buchkunst werden ebenso prasentiert wie geheimnisvolle Gotterfiguren und erstmals auf dem Kontinent gezeigte Funde paganer Kultplatze. In zahlreichen Aufsatzen behandeln namhafte Autoren die wichtigsten Etappen und kulturellen Veranderungen der uber 1000 Jahre umfassenden Epoche des Ubergangs: von der Verbreitung des Christentums im romischen Reich, der Christianisierung Galliens, Irlands und der Angelsachsen bis hin zur Evangelisierung Skandinaviens, Polens und der Mission im Baltikum. Der abschliessende Ruckblick auf die Geschichte der Christianisierung fuhrt zur Frage nach der Identitat Europas und dem Stellenwert seiner christlichen Wurzeln heute.

Schrijven in commissie, de zusters uit het Brusselse klooster Jericho en de preken van hun biechtvaders (ca. 1456-1510)
In 1459 vatte Maria van Pee, kanunnikes in het Brusselse klooster Jericho, het plan op de preken van haar rector en biechtvader Jan Storm uit haar geheugen op te schrijven. Ze stond daarmee aan de wieg van een eeuwenlange traditie in het convent die het omvangrijkste corpus biechtvaderpreken uit de Nederlanden heeft opgeleverd. De collectie is uniek vanwege de naamsvermelding van nagenoeg alle betrokken priesters en zusters en de uitgebreide prologen. Hierin geven de zusters aan, dat zij schreven om het werk van hun biechtvaders niet verloren te laten gaan, uit eerbetoon aan hen en God, en voor hun eigen zielenheil en dat van hun medezusters. Patricia Stoop analyseert de manier waarop de zusters te werk gingen bij het noteren van de preken. Zij laat zien, dat de prekencollecties resultaat zijn van een collectief schrijverschap en dat zij het zwaartepunt vormen van een veel bredere schrijfcultuur in het klooster.

The Inner Lives of Medieval Inquisitors
There have been numerous studies in recent decades of the medieval inquisitions, most emphasizing larger social and political circumstances and neglecting the role of the inquisitors themselves. In this volume, Karen Sullivan sheds much-needed light on these individuals and reveals that they had choices - both the choice of whether to play a part in the orthodox repression of heresy and, more frequently, the choice of whether to approach heretics with zeal or with charity.

In successive chapters on key figures in the Middle Ages - Bernard of Clairvaux, Dominic Guzman, Conrad of Marburg, Peter of Verona, Bernard Gui, Bernard Delicieux, and Nicholas Eymerich - Sullivan shows that it is possible to discern each inquisitor making personal, moral choices as to what course of action he would take. All medieval clerics recognized that the church should first attempt to correct heretics through repeated admonitions and that, if these admonitions failed, it should then move toward excluding them from society. Yet more charitable clerics preferred to wait for conversion, while zealous clerics preferred not to delay too long before sending heretics to the stake. By considering not the external prosecution of heretics during the Middles Ages, but the internal motivations of the preachers and inquisitors who pursued them, as represented in their writings and in those of their peers, The Inner Lives of Medieval Inquisitors explores how it is that the most idealistic of purposes can lead to the justification of such dark ends.

Swart, L.
De articulatie van de mystieke omvorming in 'Die geestelike Brulocht' van Jan van Ruusbroec
In deze studie treft de lezer eerst een overzicht aan van het onderzoek dat de afgelopen honderd jaar is verricht naar de 'vader van de Nederlandse mystiek' en zijn werken. Helder beschrijft Swart op welke diverse terreinen de Ruusbroecstudie zich heeft begeven en welke vraagstukken ze heeft trachten op te lossen.
Dan wijdt hij zich aan een commentaar op Ruusbroecs hoofdwerk, dat hij paragraaf voor paragraaf naloopt. Die geestelike brulocht beschrijft de mystieke omvorming in zijn totaliteit, vanaf het morele en godsdienstige leven, dat voor alle gelovigen geldt, tot de hoogste mystieke uitbloei waaraan slechts luttele stervelingen toekomen. Niet alleen geeft Swart een voorbeeldige interpretatie waarin de kracht en de schoonheid van de Brulocht tot hun recht komen, hij ontwikkelt ook een methode die het onderzoek naar betogende teksten vooruit helpt. Ten slotte besteedt hij met behulp van de verteltheorie aandacht aan de vormen en structuren van het geschrift, met het oog op hun mystagogische functie.
Niet eerder werd een mystieke tekst van deze omvang zo zorgvuldig geanalyseerd. Die geestelike brulocht toont zich eens te meer een magnum opus uit de middeleeuwse literatuur, met een allure die van en voor alle tijden is. De hedendaagse lezer vindt in Ruusbroec een wijze, gedreven en kundige leraar, een betrouwbare gids in het labyrint van het geestelijk leven – een auteur van het allergrootste formaat, die gloedvol een weg uitzet.

The Canso d'Antioca An Occitan Epic Chronicle of the First Crusade
The "Canso d'Antioca" is a fragment of a much larger epic describing the events of the First Crusade, related to the old French "Chanson d'Antioche" but with many unique features. As such it presents a double interest to scholars of both history and literature. It is a source text for the First Crusade with information not contained in any other source. It is also an early and seminal text for Occitan epic, few examples of which survive, and arguably it represents the first work of vernacular verse history in France, raising fundamental questions about the junction of epic and historiography. This is the first published edition of the text since Paul Meyer's version in 1884

Symeon, St., H.J.M.Turner (transl)
The Epistles of St Symeon the New Theologian
St Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022) is regarded as one of the most significant figures in Byzantine mysticism. Though a very controversial figure in his own lifetime, he is now revered both in Orthodox and other Christian traditions. After beginning his monastic life while still comparatively young, he became hegumen of the monastery of St Mamas, and held that position for several years. Many of his writings, including the Discourses and Hymns, have appeared in print, but his four epistles have not been published in their entirety until now. In these four letters, besides criticising those contending against him, Symeon writes as a pastor, concerned to give practical moral guidance. He focuses on confession, repentence, and the role of the spiritual father. H. J. M. Turner details the biographic and textual context of this scholarly annotated edition. He uses the previously unpublished Greek text established by Joseph Paramelle to provide an authoritative basis for his translation. Clearly and accessibly presented, these letters serve to reinforce our understanding of Symeon's life and work.

Conversion and Narrative: Reading and Religious Authority in Medieval Polemic
In 1322, a Jewish doctor named Abner entered a synagogue in the Castilian city of Burgos and began to weep in prayer. Falling asleep, he dreamed of a "great man" who urged him to awaken from his slumber. Shortly thereafter, he converted to Christianity and wrote a number of works attacking his old faith. Abner tells the story in fantastic detail in the opening to his Hebrew-language but anti-Jewish polemical treatise, Teacher of Righteousness.

In the religiously plural context of the medieval Western Mediterranean, religious conversion played an important role as a marker of social boundaries and individual identity. The writers of medieval religious polemics such as Teacher of Righteousness often began by giving a brief, first-person account of the rejection of their old faith and their embrace of the new. In such accounts, Ryan Szpiech argues, the narrative form plays an important role in dramatizing the transition from infidelity to faith.

Szpiech draws on a wide body of sources from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim polemics to investigate the place of narrative in the representation of conversion. Making a firm distinction between stories told about conversion and the experience of religious change, his book is not a history of conversion itself but a comparative study of how and why it was presented in narrative form within the context of religious disputation. He argues that between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries, conversion narratives were needed to represent communal notions of history and authority in allegorical, dramatic terms.

After considering the late antique paradigms on which medieval Christian conversion narratives were based, Szpiech juxtaposes Christian stories with contemporary accounts of conversion to Islam and Judaism. By seeing conversion not as an individual experience but as a public narrative, Conversion and Narrative provides a new, interdisciplinary perspective on medieval writing about religious disputes.

Taylor, L. J.
The Virgin Warrior. The Life and Death of Joan of Arc
France's great heroine and England's great scourge: whether a lunatic, a witch, a religious icon, or a skilled soldier and leader, Joan of Arc's contemporaries found her as extraordinary and fascinating as the legends that abound about her today. But her life has been so endlessly cast and recast that we have lost sight of the remarkable girl at the heart of it - a teenaged peasant girl who, after claiming to hear voices, convinced the French king to let her lead a disheartened army into battle. In the process she changed the course of European history. In "The Virgin Warrior", Larissa Juliet Taylor paints a vivid portrait of Joan as a self-confident, charismatic and supremely determined figure, whose sheer force of will electrified those around her and struck terror into the hearts of the English soldiers and leaders. The drama of Joan's life is set against a world where visions and witchcraft were real, where saints could appear to peasants, battles and sieges decided the fate of kingdoms and rigged trials could result in burning at the stake. Yet in her short life, Joan emboldened the French soldiers and villagers with her strength and resolve. A difficult, inflexible leader, she defied her accusers and enemies to the end. From her early years to the myths and fantasies that have swelled since her death, Taylor teases out a nuanced and engaging story of the truly irresistible 'ordinary' girl who rescued France.

Middeleeuwse Magister
De reikwijdte van het middeleeuwse onderwijs is enorm. Zoals de apostelen lichtende voorbeelden waren voor de middeleeuwse mens, zo was ook de extravagante en nu obscure laatantieke auteur Martianus Capella met zijn boek vol pagane wijsheid een bron van kennis en inspiratie. In deze bundel worden verschillende uithoeken van de wereld van onderwijs, geleerdheid en zelfontplooiing in de Middeleeuwen bezocht. De reis gaat van de zesde eeuw naar de vijftiende: van de instructies voor goed leiderschap van Gregorius de Grote tot de briefwisseling tussen de magister primus van de Zwolse stadsschool Johannes Cele en Geert Grote, de voorman van de moderne devoten. Het verzamelde materiaal, uiteenlopend van geleerde controverses die in commentaartradities op de spits gedreven worden tot de uitvinding van het lijnensysteem voor muzieknotatie, biedt een boeiende kijk in de wereld van de middeleeuwse magister.

Terpstra, Nicholas
Cultures of Charity: Women, Politics, and the Reform of Poor Relief in Renaissance Italy
Renaissance Italians pioneered radical changes in ways of helping the poor, including orphanages, workhouses, pawnshops, and women's shelters. Nicholas Terpstra shows that gender was the key factor driving innovation. Most of the recipients of charity were women. The most creative new plans focused on features of women's poverty like illegitimate births, hunger, unemployment, and domestic violence. Signal features of the reforms, from forced labor to new instruments of saving and lending, were devised specifically to help young women get a start in life. Cultures of Charity is the first book to see women's poverty as the key factor driving changes to poor relief. These changes generated intense political debates as proponents of republican democracy challenged more elitist and authoritarian forms of government emerging at the time. Should taxes fund poor relief? Could forced labor help build local industry? Focusing on Bologna, Terpstra looks at how these fights around politics and gender generated pioneering forms of poor relief, including early examples of maternity benefits, unemployment insurance, food stamps, and credit union savings plans.

Theophanes (Theophanus)
The Chronicle of Theophanes. Anni Mundi 6095-6305 (A.D. 602-813)
Edited and Translated by H. Turtledove.
The most important illuminating source that survived from the two centuries termed "the dark ages of Byzantium" is the chronicle of the monk Theophanes (d. 817 or 818). In it Theophanes paints a vivid picture of the Empire's struggle in the seventh and eighth centuries both to withstand foreign invasions and to quell internal religious conflicts. Theophanes's carefully developed chronological scheme was mined extensively by later Byzantine and Western record keepers; his chronicle was used as a source of information as well as a stylistic model. It is the framework upon which all Byzantine chronology for this period must be based.

Important topics covered by the Chronicle include: The Empire's struggle to repel explosive Arab expansionism and the Bulgar invasion. The iconoclastic controversy, which caused civil war within Byzantium and led to schism between the churches of Constantinople and Rome. The development of the Byzantine thematic system, the administrative and social structure that would bring the Empire to the height of its power and prosperity.

Almost all the sources used by Theophanes have perished, leaving his chronicle as the most important historical literature from this period. Turledove's translation makes available in English this crucial primary text for the study of medieval Byzantine civilization.

Thomas a Kempis
De navolging van Christus
Vertaald door Paul Silverentand. Met een nawoord van Desanne van Bredero.

De navolging van Christus of De imitatione Christi bestaat uit vier gedeelten, gewoonlijk traktaten genoemd; ze vormen de weerslag van een leven lang ervaring als novicenmeester, degene in een klooster die verantwoordelijk was voor de vorming van pubers in de jaren dat ze zich binnen het klooster voorbereidden op het afleggen van de geloften en een leven 'in navolging van Christus': als monnik. Hierbij legt Thomas a Kempis niet de nadruk op de formele regels (die waren in zijn klooster immers al door Augustinus vastgelegd) maar juist op praktische raadgevingen en manieren om je aan de harde, vaak tegennatuurlijke regels te kunnen houden. Door zijn oog en begrip voor de menselijke zwakheden van zijn novicen weet Thomas ondanks de strenge, ascetische idealen van het kloosterleven toch een heel menselijke, vaderlijke toon te creeren in een opmerkelijk eenvoudig en direct Latijn.

Thomas a Kempis
De rozentuin
Naast De Navolging van Christus heeft Thomas nog tal van andere werken geschreven. Van het traktaat De rozentuin (Hortulus rosarum) verscheen in 2009 voor het eerst een Nederlandse vertaling.

De rozentuin vertoont wat betreft de stijl een zekere verwantschap met de oudtestamentische wijsheidsliteratuur. Zoals de schrijver van het boek Spreuken toont Thomas zich nu eens belerend, dan weer vermanend. Soms ontleent Thomas zijn inzichten aan de Schrift. Soms berusten zij op observaties van de natuur om hem heen. Deze observaties verwoordt hij weer in het taaleigen van de psalmist. Hiermee nodigt Thomas de lezer uit zich in de dynamiek te scharen van lof aan God, die de schepping voor Thomas, zoals ook voor Augustinus, van nature al is.

Thomas a Kempis / Thomas van Kempen
Navolging van Christus, naar het oorspronkelijke handschrift (1441) vertaald en toegelicht door Rudolf van Dijk
Deze uitgave bevat zowel de oorspronkelijke Latijnse tekst als een nieuwe Nederlandse vertaling door Rudolf van Dijk. Met een inleiding door Kees Waaijman.

Thomas van Kempen (1380-1471) verzamelde in de bloeiperiode van de Moderne Devotie tal van teksten, spreuken en gezegden uit geestelijke literatuur en uit de mond of pen van zijn tijdgenoten. Hij schikte deze zo, dat er in 1441 vier boeken waren ontstaan, een gids voor de geestelijke weg van de mens.

Ze brengen ons het besef bij dat wij niet alleen stoffelijke wezens zijn, maar ook een geestelijke dimensie hebben (boek I). Langs deze dimensie worden wij ons bewust van ons innerlijk (boek II). In de diepte van ons innerlijk ontmoeten wij in de christelijke traditie de persoon van Jezus, die ons uitnodigt met hem een innige band aan te gaan (boek III). Door hem worden wij binnengeleid in de ruimte van het goddelijk gesprek, waarin ons ware, innerlijke vertroosting geschonken wordt (boek IV).

Dr. Rudolf van Dijk (1935) en dr. Kees Waaijman (1942) zijn beiden karmeliet. Van Dijk is wetenschappelijk senior-onderzoeker Moderne Devotie van het Titus Brandsma Instituut aan de Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen. Kees Waaijman is wetenschappelijk directeur van het Titus Brandsma Instituut en hoogleraar Spiritualiteit aan de Radboud Universiteit.

Thomas Aquinas, Mark-Robin Hoogland (transl.)
The Academic Sermons
The philosophical and theological works of St. Thomas Aquinas are held in universal esteem. His commentaries on Scripture and the role of Scripture in his theological works have garnered considerable attention. Yet Thomas's academic sermons delivered on Sundays and special occasions have been widely overlooked. Considering that Thomas was a Dominican, a member of the Order of Preachers, and that he held the position of Magister in Sacra Pagina at the University of Paris--wherein preaching was a required task--the oversight is remarkable.

Though hundreds of medieval sermons are attributed to Thomas Aquinas, the Leonine Commission has identified only 20 as his. This book features all 20 sermons, and one whose authenticity has been debated, translated from the original Latin texts, five of which have never been published before. An introduction and notes accompany the first-ever English translation. Readers will gain insight into the way in which Thomas expressed his exegetical insights in his sermons.

Thomas Aquinas & R.J. Regan (trans.)
On Power (De Potentia)
On Power (De Potentia) is one of Aquinas's ''Disputed Questions'' (a systematic series of discussions of specific theological topics). It is a text which anyone with a serious interest in Aquinas's thinking will need to read. There is, however, no English translation of the De Potentia currently in print. A translation was published in 1932 under the auspices of the English Dominicans, but is now only available on a CD of translations of Aquineas coming from the InteLex Corporation. A new translation in book form is therefore highly desirable. However, the De Potentia is a very long work indeed (the 1932 translation fills three volumes), and a full translation would be a difficult publishing proposition as well as a
