Abstract

Im Kanton Baselland sind die archäologisch fassbaren Spuren der Vergangenheit vielfältig. Es sind die Hinterlassenschaften der Kelten und Römer und unserer Vorfahren aus dem Mittelalter bis in die Neuzeit. Die Archäologie hat aber auch Zeugnisse ans Licht gebracht, die noch älter sind und von der Frühzeit der Menschheit berichten. Die Vergangenheit der Heimat zu kennen, heisst die eigene Identität zu verstehen. Dieses Buch führt den historisch interessierten Wanderer zu den archäologischen Fundstellen im Kanton Baselland. Thematisiert werden die Landschaftsgeschichte, der Wandel von Vegetation und Fauna, und vor allem die Grundzüge der Geschichte von den Anfängen bis in die Neuzeit. Zudem bietet das Buch Einblicke in die archäologische Forschung des Kantons.19 Wanderrouten werden vorgestellt. Ein kostenloses App für Smartphone ergänzt das Buch. GPS-gesteuert führt es den Wanderer zu den Fundstellen im Kanton und kommentiert audiovisuell viel Wissenswertes an Ort und Stelle.Dieses Buch und das App sind die ersten der neuen Reihe Ausflug in die Vergangenheit. Nach und nach sollen weitere Kantone und Regionen vorgestellt werden, damit die Geschichte der Schweiz und ihre herrliche Landschaft erfahren und erwandert werden können.

Abstract

The remarkably high number of medieval sources on the history of Austrian Jews allows for insights into the economic, legal, and social standing of the Jews as well as into how the Christian environment treated them. The sources published in this volume show the decline in the economic and legal position of the Jews; while they were largely safe from open persecution, they were subjected to more and more restrictions that aimed at mere financial exploitation. In addition to that, the sources provide insights into the everyday interaction of Jews with the Christian majority.

Abstract

The work at hand explores the successive chronometrisation of public space using the example of Viennas public clocks from the middle of the 19th century until today.The need for knowing the exact time steadily increased since the middle of the 19th century. As two centuries ago the clocks had only hour hands, the minute hands soon became essential. Industrialisation, urbanisation, but primarily the rapid development of the railroading promoted the trend towards the modern time management of the society. Schedules demanded a higher precision of time specification; circulations of goods and persons had to be adjusted to each other; professional and private activities became standardised, tacted and adjusted to the abstract rhythm of the clocks. The knowledge about the social and economic value of time became a central criterion for the level of western civilisation.Especially the members of the middle-class got more and more used to a chronometer. It was a high goodness for them to use their time as efficient as possible. Pocket watches and wrist watches became familiar and also the number of public clocks continously increased. Especially the more and more complex organised cities became pioneers in the sphere of public timepiece.The work at hand explores, for the first time in the German-speaking historical research, the successive chronometrisation of public space using the example of Vienna from the middle of the 19th century until today. On the one hand it deals with the “exterior chronometrisation“, that is the visible aggregation of the infrastructure of time and the construction of different kinds of clocks. Spatial, architectural and design related aspects were argued, contexts of technical history as the search for the ideal drive system and of the political and representative functions of public clocks were discussed. On the other hand it deals with the “interior chronometrisation“ which means social, psychological and cultural aspects of the perception of time and their contextualisation in phenomena of scaling and standardisation on a local basis to a world scale.The actual trend of visualising public time to the split second marks the (temporary) end of the development which shows the speedup of all areas of life in a visible and sensible way.

Abstract

Interdisciplinary cooperation enables the two authors to precicly localize and date one of the most lavishly produced manuscript of a medieval German epic during 15th century. With the combination of art-historical and linguistic methods the “Münchener Jüngere Titurel” (BSB, Cgm 8470) – hithero beliefed to be of Tyrolian or Vienese origin – was dated (c. 1430/35) and localised (Regensburg). The exemplary study proves the potential of cooperations within the humanities.
