Handbook for Classical Research

One of the glories of the Greco-Roman classics is the opportunity that they give us to consider a great culture in its entirety; but our ability to do that depends on our ability to work comfortably with very varied fields of scholarship. The Handbook for Classical Research offers guidance to students needing to learn more about the different fields and subfields of classical research, and its methods and resources. The book is divided into 7 parts: The Basics, Language, The Traditional Fields, The Physical Remains, The Written Word, The Classics and Related Disciplines, The Classics since Antiquity. Topics covered range from history and literature, lexicography and linguistics, epigraphy and palaeography, to archaeology and numismatics, and the study and reception of the classics. Guidance is given not only to read, for example, an archaeological or papyrological report, but also on how to find such sources when they are relevant to research. Concentrating on "how-to" topics, the Handbook for Classical Research is a much needed resource for both teachers and students.

The relationship between public and private spheres is one of the key concerns of the modern society. This book investigates this relationship, especially as manifested in the urban space with its social and psychological significance. Through theoretical and historical examination, it explores how and why the space of human socities is subdivided into public and private sections. It starts with the private, interior space of the mind and moves step by step, through the body, home, neighborhood and the city, outwards to the most public, impersonal spaces, exploring the nature of each realm and their complex, interdependent realtionships. A stimulating and thought provoking book for any architect, architectural historian, urban planner or designer.

Die frühchristliche und byzantinische Kunst

Das Christentum begann als eine bilderlose Religion und folgte zunächst dem Bilderverbot, das es mit dem Judentum und dem Islam teilt. Wie und warum sich ab dem 3. Jahrhundert dennoch eine christliche Kunst ausbildete und wie die beiden wichtigsten Bilder der Christenheit, das Bild Christi und das der Muttergottes, ihren Aufstieg nahmen, führt dieser Band kenntnisreich vor Augen. Ebenso erläutert er die neuen architektonischen Formen, die mit dem christlichen Kirchenbau Einzug hielten, und die typische Bildausstattung der neuen Bauten. Er zeigt, wie auch in der Kunst von Byzanz die Antike mächtig fortwirkte und wie umgekehrt die byzantinische Kunst weit über Byzanz hinaus ihre Ausstrahlung entfaltete.

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

Mehr zum Buch Axel Michaels' umfassende Einführung in den Hinduismus gilt inzwischen als Standardwerk. Das Buch macht mit der Geschichte des Hinduismus und seinen klassischen Texten vertraut, beschreibt aber auch anschaulich die alltägliche Religiosität. Es erläutert die verschiedenen Riten und Feste, die Bedeutung der unzähligen Götter, das Kastensystem und nicht zuletzt die hinduistischen Vorstellungen von Raum und Zeit, Tod, Wiedergeburt und Erlösung.
