Abstract

This book treats the spectacular rise in life expectancy during the last three centuries. It is the first study to bring together both published and unpublished material about the history of the health of Belgian men and women and to analyze it critically. Isabelle Devos studies the mechanisms of the historic fall in the death rate in an original manner and answers the question why research on the causes of this decline has not progressed faster. While the discipline of historical demography orients the first part of her book, the discipline of historical epidemiology provides the perspective taken in the second part, in which the role of insects as spreaders of disease is explored. Essential in her study is the importance of local medical practitioners who already at the end of the Ancien Régime warned of the dangers present in the environment. Their ‘ecological’ thinking created a consciousness that was decisive for the further development of healthcare.

Abstract

This book contains a study on fictional, imitated language. In detailed analyses it shows how Jewish figures were characterized through their language in German fiction (18th until early 20th century). It discloses which structures of this fictional language originate from the Yiddish language and which are reflexes of (the author's) orality. At the same time the study contains a comprehensive description of Western Yiddish and its grammatical structures, which are compared with German and Eastern Yiddish varieties.

Abstract

What does it mean to violate the law on a theatrical stage? This is the central question in the following examination of modern theatre, beginning with the avant-garde, but also including the contemporary and iconoclastic work of the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio. For the historical avant-garde, art could be the gateway to a new and liberated reality. But then all of existing reality first had to be demolished, and its laws consistently violated. Ultimately, this transgressive programme ends in discouragement and self-sabotage. Such an 'anti-theatre' has been explored most extensively in the writings of the French director and essayist Antonin Artaud. A careful exploration of Artaud's work, emphasizing his actual theatrical productions, shows that this paradox does not necessarily lead to a dead end. Generalized transgression may lead to a theatre that belongs more to philosophy than to art itself.

Abstract

History and Cultural Memory in Neo-Victorian Fiction combines innovative literary and historiographical analysis to investigate the way neo-Victorian novels conceptualise our relationship to the Victorian past, and to analyse their role in the production and communication of historical knowledge. Positioning neo-Victorian novels as dynamic participants in the contemporary historical imaginary, it explores their use of the Victorians' own vocabularies of history, memory and loss to re-member the nineteenth century today. While her focus is neo-Victorian fiction, Mitchell positions these novels in relation to debates about historical fiction's contribution to historical knowledge since the eighteenth century. Her use of memory discourse as a framework for understanding the ways in which they do lay claim to historical recollection, one which opens up a range of questions beyond historical fidelity on the one hand, and the problematics of representation on the other, suggests new ways of thinking about contemporary historical fiction and its prevalence, popular appeal, and nmnenonic function today.

Abstract

The present manuscript is intended to be part II of a publication in two volumes, but at the same time it can be seen as an independent, complete study. It deals with the different aspects of the historic architecture in the region of "Semmering" in southern Lower Austria. The book is the result of the FWF-project P 13959, in which one year of research under scientifically direction and supervision of the applicant (Prof. Dr. Mario Schwarz) was dedicated to intensive studies in art history, cultural history and history of architecture of this region. The author Dr. Guenther Buchinger - responsible collaborator of the project - attempted a large-scale research of the historical villas and county-houses at Semmering. The study contains a full, detailed documentation of the history and construction of the buildings and much information about the employers and the building contractors and architects as well. Consequently the author elaborated a comprehensive stylistic analyse. By the way of elucidating the circumstances of the construction of the buildings, it was possible to reconsider the background of the creating of this artificial settlement at Semmering. A certain social group of great influence among the Viennese bourgeoisie appears in this study, which created this recreation resort as a "vacation-paradise", at that time a complete new, futuristic project, motivated by personal and commercial interests likewise. The result, a colony of villas, was used not only for private purpose, but at the same time for tourism, partially in connection with the hotel buildings.In his stylistic analyse Guenther Buchinger gives a convincing proof that the phenomenon, which in general is subsumed as "homeland-style", "vernacular architecture" or "Swiss-cottage-style", in fact is a particular form of historicism between "severe historicism" and "late historicism". In the sense of "severe historicism" patterns of genuine architecture - by preference from publications on historical Swiss architecture - were used and extensively quoted. Consequently the forms and details developed in the style of "late historicism" in free evolution and eventually took into the formal repertory also elements of "Jugendstil". The scientific results of this study are important especially concerning the architects Franz von Neumann and Josef Buendsdorf, whose work has not yet been object of detailed research, but likewise for the general oeuvre of the prominent contractor's bureau Fellner & Helmer, whose theatre-architecture is already well documented in art history, but whose country houses and hotel-buildings are largely unknown. The study partially is designed as a catalogue, which presents each object in detail, and a comprehensive report of the scientific results in a distinct summary and contains numerous photos, plans and comparative illustrations.

Abstract

The present book is dedicated to one main aspect of the Marian cult: it investigates the historical process that made Mary, mother of Jesus, the most prominent intercessor across the Byzantine Empire at the end of Iconoclasm (843). The study touches religious and social issues, it refers only to contemporary ideas and sources and distinguishes itself consciously from later mariological concepts.

Abstract

In 1996, the Palace and Gardens of Schönbrunn were inscribed on the World Heritage List. In inscribing Schönbrunn, the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO recognised that "the Palace and Gardens of Schönbrunn in Vienna - as a symbol of great heritage and one of the most important corner-stones in the history of Austria - are of outstanding universal value", according to Mounir Bouchenaki, director of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre.With this honour, the commitment to preserve the complex, which of necessity is connected with the research into it, was not created for the first time, but greater public interest and consciousness were focused on it.Since the dissolution in 1992 of the Schlosshauptmannschaft Schönbrunn, the monument has been administered by the Schloss Schönbrunn Kultur- and Betriebsgesellschaft. This occurred as a result of the Federal Law of 1 October 1992, supported by all parliamentary parties. Its first point is: "Preservation of the fabric of the buildings, protection, improvement and care of the cultural monument of Schönbrunn Palace as a total complex, architectural monument, cultural treasure, historical garden and place of scholarly activity, giving particular consideration to the historical importance of the palace."Over the course of the past ten years, from 1992 to 2002, the palace building, its adjacent buildings and the structures found in its gardens have been restored at a total cost of one billion schillings (c. 73 million euros). At the initiative of the technical managing director of the Schloss Schönbrunn Kultur- and Betriebsgesellschaft, Dr. Wolfgang Kippes, this work was accompanied by a large number of scientific studies. These include the present work, which arose in the course of two Austrian Science Fund research projects (P-12208-HIS and P-14326-ARS). They were directed by Dr. Artur Rosenauer, Professor of the History of Austrian Art at the University of Vienna.The occasion for the two research projects was provided by completely unexpected finds discovered in 1994 during construction work in the central area of the main building and subsequently exposed by the Archaeology Department of the Austrian Federal Office for the Care of Monuments. They were found to be the remains of buildings that were predecessors of the palace built by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach beginning in 1695-96. The finds were completely unexpected because Schönbrunn research up to that time was unanimous in its opinion that the earlier complex had been much farther to the east and on the (modern) boundary of the district of Meidling.The finds of 1994-95 did not clarify the early architectural history of Schönbrunn before the second Turkish siege of Vienna in 1683. Rather it created an awareness of how inadequately this period of the history of Schönbrunn, which before 1642 was named Katterburg, had been researched previously. What was lacking, above all, was basic archival research with a critical analysis of the written and pictorial sources. It was clear from the outset that this research into the sources could not be restricted to the buildings themselves but had to also include the history of their ownership and use because of the direct influence these had on the respective history of the buildings. Moreover, it was also necessary to include areas of the districts of Hietzing and Meidling that adjoined Schönbrunn on the west and east, since this was the only means of retracing the former size of the Katterburg property during the various periods. Written documentation traced the origins of the monument of Schönbrunn back to the 12th century, resulting in a 500-year period to be researched.On the one hand the later position of Schönbrunn as a château de plaisance and summer residence of the Austrian sovereigns gives meaning to its past. In that light, Katterburg represents, as it were, the "prehistory" of Schönbrunn. On the other hand, closer examination shows that Katterburg had a very volatile
