Historia Selebiensis Monasterii: The History of the Monastery of Selby (Oxford Medieval Texts)

Historia Selebiensis Monasterii: The History of the Monastery of Selby (Oxford Medieval Texts)

$160.00  $152.00

The Historia Selebiensis Monasterii is an account of the origins of the earliest Norman abbey to be founded in the north of England following the Conquest of 1066, and of the history of the monastery in its first one hundred and six years. The history was written by a young monk of Selby in 1174, and the unique medieval manuscript in which it survives appears to have been sent from Selby to the French monastery of Auxerre, from where the author claimed the founder-monk of Selby came. Weaving together historical narrative and miracles associated with the relic held at Selby Abbey, the middle finger of St Germanus of Auxerre, the author produced a lively and entertaining account designed to record the history of his monastery and promote the cult of the relic around which it had grown up. At the same time he created a past, and a corporate memory of that past, for his community. This volume contains a critical edition of the Historia, with English translation, and textual notes and historical commentary. The Introduction explores the dynamics of the text - its purpose, composition, and use of sources - and its significance as a source for monastic history. It offers a reassessment of the origins of the first Norman abbey in northern England. [Read more]

Breve historia de Europa (Humanidades/ Humanities) (Spanish Edition)

$25.95  $23.36

Desde los origenes de la humanidad, y en el ambito geografico inscrito entre el Atlantico y los Urales, se han desarrollado multiples acontecimientos que a traves de los siglos, mediante la agregacion de diversos elementos, como la herencia grecorromana, el cristianismo, la aportacion de los pueblos barbaros, la expansion ultramarina a partir del siglo xv, la formacion de estados soberanos o el fracaso de los intentos hegemonicos, desde Carlos V a Hitler, han ido forjando progresivamente una cierta identidad europea, culminada en el siglo xx por el surgimiento de una unidad europea supranacional, producto no de la fuerza, sino del mutuo consentimiento. Cada uno de los capitulos de esta BREVE HISTORIA DE EUROPA concluye con una seleccion de textos y documentos que amplian la vision del periodo. JEAN CARPENTIER y FRAN OIS LEBRUN ponen a disposicion del lector, ademas, otras herramientas complementarias: glosario, cronologia, mapas historicos, un indice toponomico y otro onomastico, asi como diversos cuadros estadisticos que encuadran la presencia europea en el conjunto mundial.

The Historia Ierosolimitana of Baldric of Bourgueil

The Historia Ierosolimitana of Baldric of Bourgueil

$99.00  $83.45

Baldric of Bourgeil's Historia Ierosolimitana is a fascinating Latin prose account of the events of the First Crusade (1095-99), and a clarification of their miraculous meaning. It was composed around 1105 by Baldric, the abbot of Bourgueil, who later became the archbishop of Dol. It is a crucial text, yet, in part because its manuscript tradition has not been fully explored, it has been hitherto neglected. This volume presents the first critical edition of the text for nearly 150 years. Importantly, the editor has established that the text exists in over three times as many manuscripts as originally thought, thus indicating a far greater impact, geographically and chronologically, for Baldric's work than has been previously considered, and placing it at the forefront of crusade accounts of the period. In addition to a careful examination of the greatly extended manuscript tradition, the editor's critical analysis explores Baldric's career; his writing style; the dating and reception of his text; the amplification of the language, narrative and characters found in his recapitulation of his primary source, the Gesta Francorum; the influence of the text on medieval authors from Orderic Vitalis to Humbert of Romans; and its perspective on the crusade as a means of protecting the familia Christi. Dr Steven Biddlecombe lectures in Medieval History at the University of Leicester. [Read more]

$16.00  $14.40

La represi n durante la guerra y en la inmediata posguerra contada por el m s prestigioso hispanista de la actualidad. Durante la Guerra Civil espa ola, cerca de 200.000 hombres y mujeres fueron asesinados lejos del frente, ejecutados extrajudicialmente o tras precarios procesos legales, y al menos 300.000 personas perdieron la vida en los frentes de batalla. Adem s, un n mero desconocido de hombres, mujeres y ni os fueron v ctimas de los bombardeos y los xodos que siguieron a la ocupaci n del territorio por parte de las fuerzas militares de Franco. En el conjunto de Espa a, tras la victoria definitiva de los rebeldes a finales de marzo de 1939, alrededor de 20.000 republicanos fueron ejecutados. Muchos m s murieron de hambre y enfermedades en prisiones y campos de concentraci n, donde se hacinaban en condiciones infrahumanas. Otros sucumbieron a las condiciones de los batallones de trabajo. A m s de medio mill n de refugiados no les qued m s salida que el exilio, y muchos perecieron en los campos de internamiento franceses. Varios miles acabaron en los campos de exterminio nazis. Todo ello constituye lo que a mi juicio puede llamarse el holocausto espa ol.

The History of the Britons: Historia Brittonum (Forgotten Books)

The History of the Britons: Historia Brittonum (Forgotten Books)

$6.71  $6.04

The Historia Brittonum, or The History of the Britons, is a historical work that was first written sometime shortly after AD 833, and exists in several recensions of varying difference. (A recension is a critical revision of a text, i.e. different editors have worked upon the text to produce various versions). It purports to relate the history of the Brythonic inhabitants of Britain from earliest times, and this text has been used to write a history of both Wales and England, for want of more reliable sources. Nennius is traditionally named as the author of the text, though this interpretation is questioned. (Quote from wikipedia.org) About the Author Nennius (768 - 809) Nennius, or Nemnivus, is either of two shadowy personages traditionally associated with the history of Wales. The better known of the two is Nennius, the student of Elvodugus. Elvodugus is commonly identified with the bishop Elfoddw of Gwynedd, who convinced the rest of the Welsh portion of Celtic Christianity to celebrate Easter on the same date as the other Catholics in Britain in 768, and is later stated by the Annales Cambriae to have died in 809. This Nennius is traditionally stated as having lived in the early 9th century, and is identified in one group of manuscripts of the Historia Britonum as the author of that work. The careful scholarship of professor David N. Dumville on this text has instead shown that the manuscripts that make this claim come from an exemplar dating to the later eleventh century, far later than the exemplars of other versions of this manuscript - as well as over two hundred years after this Nennius is supposed to have lived. However, a number of historians still refer to the author of either the original text of the Historia Brittonum, or this specific recension, as Nennius, or pseudo-Ne [Read more]

La Historia o la Lectura Del Tiempo (Vision 3x) (Spanish Edition)

$16.25  $13.58

Este ensayo reflexiona sobre los interrogantes que atraviesan hoy en d a la escritura de la historia. Desde los a os setenta y las obras de Paul Veyne, Hayde White y Michel de Certeau, los historiadores han discutido dos cuestiones esenciales: por un lado, la tensi n entre la forma ret rica y narrativa de la historia, compartida con la ficci n, y su estatuto de conocimiento comprobado; por el otro, la relacion entre el lugar social donde la historia como saber se produce (ahora la universidad, anteriormente la ciudad antigua, el monasterio, las cortes, las academias) y sus temas, t cnicas y ret rica. Recordando y desplazando estas cuestiones cl sicas, este ensayo hace hincapi en tres problemas m s recientes: 1) La competencia para la representacion del pasado entre historia, literatura y memoria; 2) Las posibilidades y efectos de la comunicaci n y de la publicaci n electr nicas sobre la investigaci n y la escritura hist ricas; 3) La construcci n de la relaci n entre las experiencias del tiempo y la construcci n del relato hist rico.

Otra Historia De Catalu a (Spanish Edition)

$27.00  $23.03

Dice del libro Ricardo de la Cierva en su pr logo del libro: Recib el manuscrito de Otra Historia de Catalu a, esta obra sorprendente y original sima del profesor Marcelo Capdeferro, con inter s y expectaci n; he terminado la segunda lectura del original con admiraci n y gratitud. Porque el autor empieza su trabajo con una definici n que parece ingenua a fuer de rotunda: Historia es la relaci n verdadera de los acontecimientos pasados. Y luego, durante centenares de p ginas apretadas, se limita a cumplir esa definici n. Me acord del padre de la historiograf a cient fica moderna, Ranke, cuando defin a a la Historia como narradora reconstructora del pasado wie es eigentlich gewesen, como sucedi en realidad. En nuestra poca, surcada por tantos modos y modas hist ricas, cuando la Historia parece tantas veces un ap ndice barato y despectivo de la filosof a o de las ciencias sociales, o peor, una burda manipulaci n que se emprende desde apriorismos pol ticos, la definici n de Ranke se ve tildada cada d a de idealismo; la objetividad, en estos tiempos de manipulaci n constituyente, parece un deseo ut pico. El historiador Capdeferro no se arredra; y quiere escribir, as de sencillo, la Historia como fue. Lo m s sorprendente es que lo consigue. Este libro atiende al hecho diferencial (de Catalu a) pero resalta tambi n el substrato gen rico. Es, por supuesto, una historia hondamente catalana. Es la historia de Catalu a, desde sus mas remotos or genes hasta las v speras de nuestro tiempo, la guerra civil espa ola. Pero no es una historia de Catalu a al margen de Espa a sino de Catalu a dentro de Espa a y como una de las fuentes grandes de esto que llamamos Espa a, a trav s de una gran empresa com n -primero la reconquista, luego la unidad y el Imperio, luego la modernidad- y mediante una convergencia que estaba marcada en el destino de Catalu a y en el de los dem s pueblos de Espa a. Con estas significativas palabras expresa el profesor Ricardo de la Cierva en su presentaci n en contenido y sentido de la obra. El mismo autor en su prologo justifica el titulo de "OTRA HISTORIA DE CATALU A", recordando como en anteriormente publico una "HISTORIA DE CATALU A" inspir ndose en las fuentes tradicionales, rom nticas y nacionalistas, y d ndose cuenta mediante estudios posteriores, que hab a incurrido en algunas tergiversaciones e inexactitudes fundamentales, consideraba un deber rectificar, inspir ndose ahora en criterios estrictamente cient ficos.

Espa a y los espa oles de hoy: Historia, sociedad y cultura

$102.60  $91.74

Espa a y los espa oles de hoy: Historia, sociedad y cultura takes a comprehensive approach to the study of Spanish culture by looking at history, society and culture with a primary emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries. Divided into three parts, the first section looks to the 20 th century to see how it shaped Spain today. It also includes an in-depth focus on modern Spanish society: family, birth rate, immigration, youth, customs, and cultural identity. It ends with an examination of culture in Spain, especially the arts.

Breve historia del islam (Spanish Edition)

Breve historia del islam (Spanish Edition)

$17.45  $15.71

The birth of Islam in the seventh century of the Christian era from the teachings of Muhammad, constitutes a decisive historical event that brought about a new monotheism and a brilliant civilization. Islam establishes the belief in a single God (Allah) and the unity of the community of believers (Ummah). The Koran is the sacred book of the Muslims. After the death of Muhammad and an unprecedented historical territorial expansion, Islam managed to unify heterogeneous societies under one religion, one language, and a common set of administrative and legal institutions. However, the history of Islam has not been immune from internal and external conflicts or religious disagreements. In fact, such fragmentations and tensions have generated unique geopolitical landscapes in different periods and based on changing ideologies. Although the historical, cultural, sociological, and anthropological dimensions have forged a unique and indivisible reality within the religion, Islam cannot be discussed simply as a monolithic religion, but rather as several religions that all claim to be descendants of Muhammad.

A History of Spain: Founded on the Historia de Espa a y de la Civilizacion Espa ola of Rafael Altamira (Classic Reprint)

$13.01  $11.71

The present work is an attempt to give in one volume the main features of Spanish history from the standpoint of A merica. It should serve almost equally well for residents of both theE nglish-speaking and theS panish American countries, since the underlying idea has been that Americans generally are concerned with the growth of thatS panish civilization which was transmitted to the new world. One of the chief factors in American life today is that of the relations between A nglo-S axon and Hispanic A merica. They are becoming increasingly important. The southern republics themselves are forging ahead; on the other hand many of them are still dangerously weak, leaving possible openings for the not unwilling old world powers; and some of the richest prospective markets of the globe are in those as yet scantily developed lands. The value of a better understanding between the peoples of the two A mericas, both for the reasons just named and for many others, scarcely calls for argument. It is almost equally clear that one of the essentials to such an understanding is a comprehension of Spanish civilization, on which that of theS panish American peoples so largely depends. That information this volume aims to provide. It confines itself to the story of the growth of Spanish civilization inS pain, but its ultimate transfer to the Americas has been constantly in the writers mind in the choice of his material, as will appear from the frequent allusions in the text. An attempt is made to treatS panish institutions not as static (which they never were) but in process of evolution, from period to period. The development of Spanish institutions in the colonies and the later independent states, it is hoped, will be the subject of another volume.
