May 1565. Suleiman the Magnificent, emperor of the Ottomans, has declared a jihad against the Knights of Saint John the Baptist. The largest armada of all time approaches the Knights' Christian stronghold on the island of Malta. The Turks know the Knights as the "The Hounds of Hell." The Knights call themselves "The Religion." In Messina, Sicily, a French countess, Carla la Penautier, seeks a passage to Malta in a quest to find the son taken from her at his birth 12 years ago. The only man with the expertise and daring to help her is a Rabelaisian soldier of fortune, arms dealer, former janissary, and strapping Saxon adventurer by the name of Mattias Tannhauser. He agrees to accompany the lady to Malta, where, amidst the most spectacular siege in military history, they must try to find the boy - whose name they do not know and whose face they have never seen - and pluck him from the jaws of Holy War. The Religion is Book One of The Tannhauser Triology, and from the first page of this epic account of the last great medieval conflict between East and West, it is clear we are in the hands of a master. Not since James Clavell has a novelist so powerfully and assuredly plunged readers headlong into another place and time. Anne Rice transformed the vampire novel. Stephen King reinvented horror. Now, in a spectacular tale of heroism, tragedy, and passion, Tim Willocks revivifies historical fiction. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vance.

Doctor Faustus and Other Plays
9,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593), a man of extreme passions and a playwright of immense talent, is the most important of Shakespeare's contempories. This edition offers his five major plays, which show the radicalism and vitality of his writing in the few years before his violent death. Tamburlaine Part One and Part Two deal with the rise to world prominence of the great Scythian shepherd-robber; The Jew of Malta is a drama of villainy and revenge; Edward II was to influence Shakespeare's Richard II. Doctor Faustus, perhaps the first drama taken from the medieval legend of a man who sells his soul to the devil, is here in both its A- and its B- text, showing the enormous and fascinating differences between the two. Under the General Editorship of Dr Michael Cordner of the University of York, the texts of the plays have been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation. In addition, there is a scholarly introduction and detailed annotation. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Debating Religious Space and Place in the Early...
95,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Religious spaces are often some of the most debated, contested, or otherwise scrutinized in the early medieval world. That space and place were important to people in the past is evident in their architecture, artwork, literature, and in their cemeteries and burial grounds. While these observations are not new, this volume brings together interdisciplinary and multi-national archaeologists, historians, and geographers to discuss and debate 'space' and 'place' with a focus on new methodologies and current approaches to Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.The papers in this volume address such themes as phenomenological and experiential issues in the archaeology of space and place, access to and visibility of spaces (locations) in the past, the transformation and appropriation of spaces beyond the 'Christian/Pagan' dichotomy, and aspects of community and memory building in the medieval world. The contributors to this volume recognize that terms such as 'Christianisation', 'Islamisation', and indeed 'space' and 'place' themselves are loaded words and each paper takes a different route to the discussion of sacred space in the past. Together, they offer a current discussion about the role of 'space' and 'place' in religious history.ContentsIntroduction: Defining Religious 'Space' and 'Place'Brittany Thomas and Chantal BielmannChapter 1.

Medieval Malta
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Research on medieval villages in Malta has yet to become a priority among archaeologist of the Maltese Islands. This is not surprising since Malta holds so many amazing Megalithic temples and many other famous Neolithic sites. So the chapels, farmhouses and ceramics that litter the countryside are just waiting to be studied. I began my research on the island by studying the material culture of deserted villages and farmhouses. I focused on using surface ceramics and surviving house remains to analyze the changing way of life of the countryside. Artifact collection and analysis are of extreme importance since a medieval pottery typology and chronology in Malta are lacking. Sites with intact stratified layers and ceramics in situ would greatly advance the data available for the Medieval age on Malta. The documentation of medieval farmhouses on Malta is equally important for current research. The majority of standing structures, i.e., farmhouses and chapels, come from the last few centuries. Pre-sixteenth-century farmhouses are very hard to locate, but with the help of various researchers from the University of Malta, I found many promising locations.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fort St Angelo is a large fortification in Birgu, Malta. The date of its original construction is unknown and may date back to Roman times. It certainly existed in the early medieval period. The remains of a tower that may date back to the 11th century when Malta was under Arab control can be traced among the more recent works. From the 14th century the Maltese Islands were under Aragonese rule and the fortification was known as Castello a Mare (Castle by the sea) and it was home to the powerful Nava family, feudal lords of the island.
