The Apse, the Image and the Icon
€ 24.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book deals with the apse as a showcase for images in the early Christian and early Byzantine periods. Two opposed traditions, harking back to early imperial times, nourished the invention of the Christian apse image: on the one hand there were statues in apses of pagan temples and imperial cult rooms which were venerated during cult ceremonies, on the other hand, there were apse mosaics in nymphaea where aquatic myths and figures celebrated the amenities of water. Christian apse mosaics originated within this context and in spite of the Old Testament prohibition of the image. Mosaics and frescoes in apses of cult rooms generated very particular effects, evoking in the viewer respect, admiration, awe and maybe even veneration. The capacity of the image to have an impact on the viewer could not be decreed by the Church, but this was an affair manifested more or less casually according to the inventive power of the artist. This book explores the interactions between the various image-media during the early Christian and early Byzantine periods; it particularly investigates the participation of the viewer and of the patron.

Perfectly Abnormal: Uncovering the Image of God...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Living with a chronic illness is tough enough on its own, but it can become an overwhelming burden when we believe widespread myths about chronic illness. Without a strategy to overcome these lies, we can descend into a listless existence, even as people of faith. In Perfectly Abnormal, Chris Morris tears down the erroneous and misinformed beliefs surrounding chronic illness. From the unique standpoint of being both a parent of a special needs daughter and having a seizure disorder himself, Chris guides listeners through difficult terrain as he shreds the eight most common myths the chronic illness community faces. Then he begins the conversation of developing a better theology of illness, with the intent of bringing his listeners to a place of intentional excellence in spite of their conditions. 1.

Dr. Harold Jones, a Professor of Christian Science has had a childhood dream of walking where God walked - to find the original location of the Garden of Eden from the Bible. Later in life, when he comes into the funds to make this historical trip possible, he hires a ship and brings along four of his top students in his quest for the Garden and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Along the way, the hired ship, including its Captain and crew, encounter blocks and barriers that make them wonder if the trip is too dangerous and what higher powers may be working against them. They continue forward in spite of their troubles to discover a jungle where satellite images have shown only rocks and dirt. Could this be the Garden that the Professor seeks?

Klaus Kinski , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 70min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´´You can witness Klaus Kinski have a mood swing within a minute, within a sentence, as his mind conveys him from an infuriating image to a soothing one to a humorous one. If you watch his face while he speaks, you will see it become a mask of ire, his glance menacing as he spits out words of contempt and outrage. Then suddenly, there´ll be a smile of such gentleness that something will constrict in your chest.´´ Klaus Kinski is Marcelle Clements´ enigmatic profile of the enigmatic German actor, who - possessed by an unnamable ´´thing´´, which Kinski himself describes as an ability to ´´incarnate´´ - starred in more than 130 films, even as the very ´´thing´´ that allowed him to create continually devoured him. Klaus Kinski was originally published in Playboy, January 1985. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marcelle Clements. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/029453/bk_adbl_029453_sample.mp3.

The Pennsylvania Museum Bulletin, Vol. 18
€ 10.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Excerpt from The Pennsylvania Museum Bulletin, Vol. 18: January, 1923 It is not without purpose that so far we have deferred discussing the age of this bronze. It is a problem that presents insuperable barriers to the western critic, and no trustworthy solution can ever be reached until students of the subject in India turn seriously to search for evidence which can end the large amount of meaningless speculation on the subject. The publication in Rupam of the recent discovery of a dated bronze Nataraj a is a step in the right direction; certainly it should silence those who would have us believe that images such as these date as far back as the eighth or ninth cen tuties, for in spite of its apparent antiquity, judged by the patina the metal had acquired and the comparative simplicity of the modelling, it proves to be inscribed with the date 4611 (1511 A. D.) In part this revelation is but additional proof that appearances of age, in bronzes especially, are no safe guide to accurate dating; in truth the sorry fact that by the application of chemicals and skillful treatment any patina may today be imitated has made us unwary already of depend ing upon that indication alone. It might be said that the Museum´s Nataraja is not so old as the one found dated 1511, if we argue that it seems slightly more sophisticated in treatment, a belief to which the sharper form of the features, the more refined turning of the limbs, and the restrained pose of the head and neck all might be said to testify. On the other hand it cannot be denied that a far-earlier sculptor with a readier hand but more restraint might have produced our example in the fifteenth century. And so the matter stands, nor can we hope to get nearer the truth until a close study, technical as well as esthetic, is made of the early Natarajas and similar metal figures in India, a far from uninteresting research and one to be earnestly encouraged. Fortunately uncertainty of date does not trouble our artistic ap preciation of the Nataraja; mere years cannot rob the statue of its imperishable youthfulness in our eyes, and the lithe virility it por trays is unalterably appealing. Though twenty centuries of closely traditional thought have made our western minds purblind to almost all religious symbols save those whose aspects are benignant calm or majestic suffering, yet still we may grasp the happy meaning of the Nataraja - the dance of the all-pervading spirit of the universe that is the rapture, the ecstasy of creation.

He cannot watch her make a mistake of such magnitude. Darcy: A woman as brilliant, beautiful, and witty as Elizabeth Bennet deserves a good match. One better than her silly cousin, or that irredeemable rake, Wickham, who I know to be much different from the image he presents to the world. Can I save her from committing herself to a disastrous marriage? Elizabeth: Considering he finds me merely tolerable, the unpleasant Mr. Darcy is unduly obsessed with the gentlemen who wish to court me. Though I have no intention of marrying Mr. Collins, I find myself inexplicably drawn to the witty Mr. Wickham, in spite of Darcy’s objections. I cannot imagine why Darcy thinks his opinions would sway me, nor can I understand why I cannot stop thinking about the infuriating man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stevie Zimmerman.
