James was a vegetarian, wore only linen clothing, bathed daily at dawn in cold water, and was a life-long Nazirite. In this profound and provocative work of scholarly detection, eminent biblical scholar Robert Eisenman introduces a startling theory about the identity of James—the brother of Jesus, who was almost entirely marginalized in the New Testament. Drawing on long-overlooked early Church texts and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Eisenman reveals in this groundbreaking exploration that James, not Peter, was the real successor to the movement we now call "Christianity." In an argument with enormous implications, Eisenman identifies Paul as deeply compromised by Roman contacts. James is presented as not simply the leader of Christianity of his day, but the popular Jewish leader of his time, whose death triggered the Uprising against Rome—a fact that creative rewriting of early Church documents has obscured. Eisenman reveals that characters such as "Judas Iscariot" and "the Apostle James" did not exist as such. In delineating the deliberate falsifications in New Testament dcouments, Eisenman shows how—as James was written out—anti-Semitism was written in. By rescuing James from the oblivion into which he was cast, the final conclusion of James the Brother of Jesus is, in the words of The Jerusalem Post, "apocalyptic" —who and whatever James was, so was Jesus.

The 'Book of Deeds' is the first known autobiography by a Christian king. Its author was James I of Aragon (1213-76), known as 'The Conqueror', one of the great political figures of 13th-century Europe and a successful crusader. In his 'Deeds', James describes the turbulent years of his minority, the thrilling capture of Majorca, the methodical conquest of the kingdom of Valencia, the reconquest of the kingdom of Murcia after Castile had failed to hold it, and many of the important events of his reign. While crusade and conquest of Spanish territory from the Muslims and Christian-Muslim relations on the frontier are central features of the account, the 'Deeds' are also a treasure trove of information on the image, power and purpose of monarchy, loyalty and bad faith in the feudal order, the growth of national sentiment, and medieval military tactics. At the same time, the book presents a unique insight into the mind of a medieval ruler, the supreme example we possess of the fears and ambitions of a man at the very centre of events.

Und die Reihen der Feriengäste beginnen sich zu lichten, als eine schrullige alte Dame erschlagen aufgefunden wird. Kincaid übernimmt den Fall.

The lack of serious and sustained investigation of the historical figure of James "the Just," brother of Jesus, is one of the curious oversights in modern critical study of Christian origins. "James the Just and Christian Origins" addresses this problem. The questions that surround this exceedingly important, yet largely ignored figure are several and complicated. Was he really the brother of Jesus? How influential was he in the early church? What was the nature of his relationship to the other apostles, especially to Paul? How did James understand Christianity's relationship to Judaism and to the people of Israel? Out of this grows a very important question: In its generative moment, was Christianity in fact as well as in its self-awareness, a species of Judaism? Contributors from several countries are currently engaged in collaborative study in James and early Jewish Christianity. "James the Just and Christian Origins" is the first of several planned volumes to be published.

Auch wenn aus dem provokanten Schotten mittlerweile ein selbstbewusster Englander geworden ist, uberzeugt er doch immer noch mit seiner unbestechlichen Mannlichkeit: BOND. JAMES BOND. Der Schwarm der Frauen und das Identifikationsbild zahlreicher Manner hat den Sprung in die Gegenwart uberlebt und bezaubert seit uber 40 Jahren die Zuschauer auf der Leinwand. Obwohl seit dem ersten Agentenabenteuer von 1962 sechs verschiedene Darsteller der Figur Leben eingehaucht haben und seine Daseinsberechtigung spatestens mit Ende des Kalten Krieges abgelaufen war, halt der Spion sich hartnackig in den Kinos und ist heut zu Tage erfolgreicher als je zuvor. In diesem Werk folgt die Autorin der Spur des Agenten, erlautert Produktionshintergrunde und sucht Motive fur den Erfolg der Filmreihe. Ausgehend von der Originalfigur in Ian Flemings Romanen der 1950er und 60er Jahre bietet diese Studie einen detaillierten Einblick in die verschiedenen Interpretationen der sechs Bond-Darsteller und arbeitet ihre Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede heraus. Uber die offensichtlichen Punkte, wie das aussere Erscheinungsbild oder das Beziehungsgeflecht zwischen dem Agenten, seinem Bondgirl und dem Bosewicht, wird hier insbesondere ein Fokus auf die kleinen Zwischentone gelegt, die im Verhalten der Figur begrundet sind. Erst die genaue Betrachtung von Gestik, Mimik und sprachlicher Betonung, aber auch die Eigenheiten des jeweiligen Darstellers und die Ideen der einzelnen Produktionsmitarbeiter enthullen dem Betrachter den tatsachlichen Charakter von James Bond. Ein grosses Augenmerk liegt hierbei auf der offensichtlichen Mannlichkeit der Figur, die sich immer wieder den aktuellen Ansichten und Vorlieben der Gesellschaft anpassen musste, um ihren Helden (zumindest in den Kopfen der Betrachter) unsterblich zu mache

Law Sex and Christian Society in Medieval Europe

This monumental study of medieval law and sexual conduct explores the origin and develpment of the Christian church's sex law and the systems of belief upon which that law rested. Focusing on the Church's own legal system of canon law, James A. Brundage offers a comprehensive history of legal doctrines–covering the millennium from A.D. 500 to 1500–concerning a wide variety of sexual behavior, including marital sex, adultery, homosexuality, concubinage, prostitution, masturbation, and incest. His survey makes strikingly clear how the system of sexual control in a world we have half-forgotten has shaped the world in which we live today. The regulation of marriage and divorce as we know it today, together with the outlawing of bigamy and polygamy and the imposition of criminal sanctions on such activities as sodomy, fellatio, cunnilingus, and bestiality, are all based in large measure upon ideas and beliefs about sexual morality that became law in Christian Europe in the Middle Ages. "Brundage's book is consistently learned, enormously useful, and frequently entertaining. It is the best we have on the relationships between theological norms, legal principles, and sexual practice."—Peter Iver Kaufman, Church History

James VI and I pursued various highly distinctive policies. He also, to an extent exceptional among monarchs, expressed his ideas and aspirations by means of print, pen, and spoken word. The essays in this volume explore four main themes of particular concern to James: the union of England and Scotland; the government of Scotland; religious unity; and James's involvement in culture as both author and patron. They throw fresh light on the ways in which James communicated his ideas and designs to his subjects, and important foreign audiences, raising important questions about his judgement and skill as a monarch.
