Entgegen einer weit verbreiteten Ansicht waren die Kreuzzüge keineswegs ein Phänomen, das auf das Mittelalter beschränkt blieb. Es gibt sie bis heute. Der vorliegende Sammelband mit Beiträgen aus der westlichen und der arabischen Welt setzt sich zur Aufgabe, die Kreuzzugsidee in ihren neuzeitlichen, zum Teil säkularisierten Ausformungen zu fassen und ihre Entwicklungen bis in die Gegenwart zu beschreiben. Dabei werden vor allem die USA ausführlich als Erben mittelalterlicher Traditionslinien analysiert. Der ideengeschichtliche Ansatz mündet in Betrachtungen europäischer und arabischer Geschichtskultur und wartet mit didaktischen Ansätzen auf, die den zuvor gewonnenen Erkenntnissen Rechnung tragen. Contrary to a widely-held assumption, the Crusades were not a phenomenon restricted to the Middle Ages. They continue today. This volume, with contributions from the Western and Arab worlds seeks to comprehend the idea of a crusade in its modern, partly secularised forms and to describe its development up to the present day. In particular, the USA is analysed in detail as the inheritor of mediaeval traditions. This approach from the perspective of the history of ideas culminates in considerations of European and Arabic cultures of history, and comes up with didactic approaches to accommodate the insights gained in the book.

An extensive examination of the history of gnosticism and how its philosophy has influenced the Western esoteric tradition • Explains how the Gnostic understanding of self-realization is embodied in the esoteric traditions of the Rosicrucians and Freemasons • Explores how gnosticism continues to influence contemporary spirituality • Shows gnosticism to be a philosophical key that helps spiritual seekers "remember" their higher selves Gnosticism was a contemporary of early Christianity, and its demise can be traced to Christianity's efforts to silence its teachings. The Gnostic message, however, was not destroyed but simply went underground. Starting with the first emergence of Gnosticism, the author shows how its influence extended from the teachings of neo-Platonists and the magical traditions of the Middle Ages to the beliefs and ideas of the Sufis, Jacob Böhme, Carl Jung, Rudolf Steiner, and the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. In the language of spiritual freemasonry, gnosis is the rejected stone necessary for the completion of the Temple, a Temple of a new cosmic understanding that today's heirs to Gnosticism continue to strive to create. The Gnostics believed that the universe embodies a ceaseless contest between opposing principles. Terrestrial life exhibits the struggle between good and evil, life and death, beauty and ugliness, and enlightenment and ignorance: gnosis and agnosis. The very nature of physical space and time are obstacles to humanity's ability to remember its divine origins and recover its original unity with God. Thus the preeminent gnostic secret is that we are God in potential and the purpose of bona fide gnostic teaching is to return us to our godlike nature. Tobias Churton is a filmmaker and the founding editor of the magazine Freemasonry Today. He studied theology at Oxford University and created the award-winning documentary series and accompanying book The Gnostics, as well as several other films on Christian doctrine, mysticism, and magical folklore. He lives in England.

From re-runs of 'TV classics' like The Avengers or Starsky and Hutch, to soundtracks, club nights and film remakes such as Mission Impossible II, the action series is enjoying a popular revival.

From The Saint to Knigh t Rider, contributors explore the key shows which defined the genre, addressing issues of audiences and consumption, gender and sexuality, fashion and popular culture.
