Crusading as an Act of Vengeance, 1095–1216

Only recently have historians of the crusades begun to seriously investigate the presence of the idea of crusading as an act of vengeance, despite its frequent appearance in crusading sources. Understandably, many historians have primarily concentrated on non-ecclesiastical phenomena such as feuding, purportedly a component of "secular" culture and the interpersonal obligations inherent in medieval society. This has led scholars to several assumptions regarding the nature of medieval vengeance and the role that various cultures of vengeance played in the crusading movement. This monograph revises those assumptions and posits a new understanding of how crusading was conceived as an act of vengeance in the context of the twelfth and early thirteenth centuries. Through textual analysis of specific medieval vocabulary it has been possible to clarify the changing course of the concept of vengeance in general as well as the more specific idea of crusading as an act of vengeance. The concept of vengeance was intimately connected with the ideas of justice and punishment. It was perceived as an expression of power, embedded in a series of commonly understood emotional responses, and also as an expression of orthodox Christian values. There was furthermore a strong link between religious zeal, righteous anger, and the vocabulary of vengeance. By looking at these concepts in detail, and in the context of current crusading methodologies, fresh vistas are revealed that allow for a better understanding of the crusading movement and those who "took the cross," with broader implications for the study of crusading ideology and twelfth-century spirituality in general.

Iconography of Old Kingdom Elite Tombs

Analysis & Interpretation, Theoretical and Methodological Aspects

What is presented here is a preliminary crystallization of thinking about questions, problems, and aspects that presented themselves during research into the iconography of Old Kingdom elite tombs in the so-called Leiden Mastaba Project (LMP), started in 1980 for teaching advanced students. Since the Egyptian culture has been given shape mainly in connection with the residences of the kings, the elite tombs of the Memphite area only were incorporated into the database. The original paper database consists of individual files on each tomb, giving a plan, wall scheme, a concise description of each sub-theme and its accompanying texts (if present). For details on the set-up, the original questions, the intention and some preliminary results on the partially collected material in 1985, see Van Walsem, Mastaba project. The core of this essay is a combination of and an elaboration of two former lectures by the author entitled: "Some un(der)exposed aspects in the study and interpretation of mastaba scenes" and "Religious iconography of Ancient Egypt: methodological and theoretical problems".

F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.

Networks of Power and Influence

Category: Political Science

Page: 224

Michael Barr explores the complex and covert networks of power at work in one of the world's most prosperous countries – the city-state of Singapore. He argues that the contemporary networks of power are a deliberate project initiated and managed by Lee Kuan Yew – former prime minister and Singapore’s ‘founding father’ – designed to empower himself and his family. Barr identifies the crucial institutions of power - including the country’s sovereign wealth funds, and the government-linked companies – together with five critical features that form the key to understanding the nature of the networks. He provides an assessment of possible shifts of power within the elite in the wake of Lee Kuan Yew’s son, Lee Hsien Loong, assuming power, and considers the possibility of a more fundamental democratic shift in Singapore’s political system.

In Britain, the resistance to popular determination allowed by the financial construct of the public has been so successful that this term, public, must be re-read as politically paralyzing. The problem, our problem, is the public - which we are so often told will bring us together and provide for us - and it is this we must move beyond.
