Abstract

À l’occasion du 800e anniversaire de la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Reims, Willibald Sauerländer prononçait un éloge que ce livre reprend dans une version revue et augmentée. Il se concentre particulièrement sur le souvenir des pratiques sacrées et des cultes, de la vénération des reliques jusqu’au sacre des rois, qui prêtèrent à la cathédrale une intense vie liturgique dans la France prérévolutionnaire. L’auteur évoque successivement le chœur en tant que métaphore iconographique de la Jérusalem céleste, les statues de saints comme guides vers leurs châsses et leurs reliques, et la cathédrale comme lieu de l’onction et du couronnement des souverains français. Le volume se conclut par un chapitre évoquant les sculptures de la cathédrale et leur lien spirituel avec le rituel du culte et des fêtes qui animaient l’église métropolitaine.

Abstract

By the early ninth century, the responsibility for a series of social, religious and political transformations had become an integral part of running the Carolingian empire. This became especially clear when, in 813/4, Louis the Pious and his court seized the momentum generated by their predecessors and broadened the scope of these reforms ever further. These reformers knew they represented a movement greater than the sum of its parts; the interdependence between those wielding imperial authority and those bearing responsibility for ecclesiastical reforms was driven by comprehensive, yet still surprisingly diverse expectations.Taking this diversity as a starting point, this book takes a fresh look at the optimistic first decades of the ninth century. Extrapolating from a series of detailed case studies rather than presenting a new grand narrative, it offers new interpretations of contemporary theories of personal improvement and institutional correctio, and shows the self-awareness of its main instigators as they pondered what it meant to be a good Christian in a good Christian empire.

Abstract

The still existing source material on the history of the Jews in Austria in the Middle Ages is unique in Europe. The huge number of sources give information on the economic, legal, and personal situation of the Jews as well as on the relationship between Christians and Jews. Yet so far, the medieval sources of the history of the Jews throughout today's Austria had not been collected. In the course of the project "Summary and Comments on Documents concerning the History of the Jews in Austria in the Middle Ages" the first volume of this source material which reaches from the beginnings until 1338 has now been finished. According to the selection criteria which include a reference to Jews and Austria, documents as well as historiography and literary sources have been collected and processed according to scientific criteria; the material contains a number of texts which have not been published at all or treated with regard to the Jewish aspect yet. The publication consists of a chronological series of document summaries; additionally, by means of comments which are added to the relevant document as well as an extensive index, the source text has been made accessible to the reader. The vast majority of the collection consists of diplomas concerning economic topics, followed by privileges, legal charters, and mandates. Among the economic sources, promissory notes and documents concerning pledges or sales are the most frequent types which clearly illustrates how Jews were forced into the money business. Due to its unique topic, this collection includes not only diplomas, but other types of sources as well, such as historiographic and literary texts. Although belonging to another category of sources, they provide information which is essential for a complete overview over the history of Jews in medieval Austria. This volume is the basis for a publication series which for the first time makes the unique source material on the history of the Jews in Austria in the Middle Ages accessible in a compiled way .

Abstract

Als herausragendes Beispiel mittelalterlicher Bibliothekskataloge gilt der um 1475 angelegte Katalog der Erfurter Kartause. Für ihn entstand zeitgleich ein einführendes Prohemium longum. Das Prohemium longum ist ein wichtiger Text geistlicher Literatur und erweist sich als bedeutender Beitrag zum Verständnis kartäusischer Spiritualität am Ausgang des Mittelalters. Die vorliegende Arbeit liefert die erstmalige und vollständige Edition seines lateinischen Texts. Ergänzt wird diese mit Untersuchungen zu Fragen des Textverständnisses: Was weiss man über den Verfasser? Mit welcher Intention schrieb er? Ein Kapitel widmet sich der Kompilationsmethode, mit der das Prohemium verfasst wurde, ein weiteres der Darstellungsweise. Schliesslich gehen drei umfangreiche Abschnitte zentralen Begriffen des Texts und deren zeitgenössischer Bewertung nach: ignorancia, theologia mistica und lectio et studium.

Abstract

Until today, the death of Charles VI and Maria Theresia’s ascending the throne 1740 is seen as a major turning point in Austrian history. But now is the question of whether in different “layers” and “rooms” without doubt fundamental change between 1720 and 1780 not differentiated must be seen against the background of the concept of interface (“Sattelzeit”/Reinhart Koselleck). On the basis of the space “Viennese court”, where the change of rulers in its effects most likely can be documented, attempts from the perspective of different disciplines (the so called “Hofkünste” – literature/poetry, arts, theatre/dance, music) point out continuities and discontinuities.

Abstract

Religious sometimes broke their vows and returned illegally to the society of the late Middle Ages. The study deals with the most radical violation of the monastic way of life, the escape from the monastery and the apostasy of the religious community. The focus is almost a thousand petitions from the Roman-German Empire. The study of apostasy provides insights into motives, dissemination, prevention and sanctions and explains divergences between norms and practice.

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.

Abstract

How were accounts of war told in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era? The contributions to this volume pursue this question in an innovative way through the combination of historical and literary methodologies. With the aid of this interdisciplinary approach, the texts examine storytelling practices and strategies which dissolved genre barriers between factual and fictional texts, thereby expanding insights with regard to their presentation of experience. This volume is not only a pioneering work of cultural studies research, but also an example of successful and productive interdisciplinary collaboration.
