among three hundred and six hundred, Christianity skilled a momentous swap from persecuted cult to country faith. one of many effects of this shift used to be the evolution of the function of the bishop—as the top Church professional in his city—from version Christian to version citizen. Claudia Rapp's particularly discovered, leading edge, and groundbreaking paintings strains this transition with a twofold objective: to deemphasize the reign of the emperor Constantine, which has normally been considered as a watershed within the improvement of the Church as an establishment, and to deliver to the fore the ongoing significance of the non secular underpinnings of the bishop's function as civic chief.

Rapp rejects Max Weber’s different types of "charismatic" as opposed to "institutional" authority that experience normally been used to tell apart the character of episcopal authority from that of the ascetic and holy guy. as an alternative she proposes a version of non secular authority, ascetic authority and pragmatic authority, during which a bishop’s seen asceticism is taken as facts of his non secular powers and even as offers the justification for his public position. In transparent and swish prose, Rapp offers a unconditionally clean research of the altering dynamics of social mobility as performed out in episcopal appointments.

Corina Winkler's Hadrian und Antinoos (German Edition) PDF

By Corina Winkler

ISBN-10: 3638672174

ISBN-13: 9783638672177

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frühgeschichte, Antike, notice: 2,3, Universität Leipzig (Institut für Geschichte, Kunst- und Orientwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar: Hadrian- Spanier, Philhellene und Judenfreund, 32 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Hadrian baute Antinoos zu Ehren nicht nur eine Stadt mit seinem Namen, sondern erhob ihn sogar zum neuen Gott, dem er unzählige Kultbilder und Kulttraditionen einrichtete. Ehrungen dieser Größenordnung, für eine individual, die weder Mitglied der kaiserlichen Familie noch ein verdienter Beamter gewesen conflict, hatte es vorher nicht gegeben. Weinerlich „wie ein Weib“ soll Hadrian gewesen sein, nachdem sein Antinoos unter myteriösen Umständen a hundred thirty n. Chr. im Nil ertrunken battle. Selbst für seine, einige Jahre später verstorbene Schwester soll er bei weitem nicht so viel Anteilnahme gezeigt haben.
Unweigerlich drängt sich die Frage auf, welches Faszinosum von Antinoos ausging, dass den Kaiser zu solch gottgleichen Ehren bewegte. Welche Beziehung hatte er zu dem Mann, für den er posthum eine Stadt errichten ließ. Diesen beiden Fragen auf den Grund zu gehen, soll für die folgende Arbeit maßgebend sein. Wichtig dabei soll die Suche nach Herkunft, Bildung und Wesen Antinoos sein, da sie Rückschlüsse auf seine Rolle in der Beziehung geben könnten. Hatte er vielleicht Einfluss auf politische Entscheidungen Hadrians und gab es Auswirkungen auf die Ehe mit Sabina? Basierte die Beziehung nur auf erotischer Anzieh-ung oder warfare es tiefbindende Liebe? Lässt sie sich mit der idealisierten Knabenliebe der Griechen vergleichen, die seit der klassischen Zeit mit einem festen Regelwerk und einer Kulturtradition ausgestattet conflict? Welches Echo auf die Beziehung ist aus den Quellen ersichtlich und welche Rückschlüsse ergeben sich daraus auf die Akzeptanz dieser Liebe am Hof und im Volk?
Um die Fragen zu klären, stehen verhältnismäßig wenig Quellen zur Verfügung. Hinweise zu Antinoos selbst können meist nur späteren oder christlichen Schriften entnommen werden, wobei diese aufgrund anderer Moralvorstellungen meist polemisierend und daher nur mit Vorsicht zu genießen sind. Die archäologischen Zeugnisse für Antinoos sind wiederum äußerst zahlreich. Über a hundred Statuen und a hundred and forty Münztypen sind erhalten, die allerdings zu einem Großteil den idealisierten Gott, nicht den Menschen Antinoos darstellen.
Die Quellenlage zum Verhältnis an sich ist ebenfalls äußerst dürftig. In der Forschung entwickelten sich daher, abhängig von jeweiligem Zeitgeist und Moralvorstellung, unterschiedliche Theorien.

Vingt ans après l. a. rédaction de La Réalité maçonnique - qui est devenue un véritable classique de l. a. franc-maçonnerie -, Jean Verdun revient sur les questions de fond auxquelles doivent faire face les "frères", alors qu'une crise profonde traverse toutes les obédiences depuis plusieurs années. Au-delà de son histoire personnelle - ancien Grand Maître de los angeles Grande Loge de France, il fait maintenant partie du Grand Orient de France -, il examine sans complaisance les raisons de cette crise, dont les controverses politiques et les scandales révélés à grand fracas par les médias ne constituent que des facets superficiels. Rites, initiation, symbolisme, "hauts grades", mixité... autant de thèmes qui cristallisent les tensions et qui illustrent les mutations en cours dans los angeles vie réelle des loges.
Jean Verdun brosse ainsi le tableau de los angeles nouvelle réalité maçonnique, qui est et qui sera tout autant spirituelle que sociale : vivant l'initiation dans le huis clos de los angeles loge, elle s'ouvrira vers l'extérieur avec de nouvelles méthodes de travail, au-delà des frontières entre obédiences, au-delà des limites du mystery. Par l'audace de ses propositions, cette oeuvre de los angeles maturité fait acte de re-fondation, elle dessine un avenir. Jean Verdun s'adresse en priorité au maçon et aussi, par son kind vivant et sa liberté d'esprit, au profane qui cherche à s'informer et à comprendre.
