Despite its enormous success and its evident importance in the context of sixteenth-century French literature, few major studies have been written about the French nouvelle of the age of Rabelais, aside from the explosion of articles and books on the Heptameron during the last decade. This study defends the thesis that various nouvelle collections employ an iconographic mode of representation, developing characters by means of external details that situate them on grids of hierarchical power relations. Author David LaGuardia concentrates on the philosophical implications of the nouvelle as a means of cataloging a large body of information about everyday life across a wide social spectrum in France in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

The volume includes a transcript of the newly-discovered Register of Lionardo di Zanobi Bartholini, a Florentine merchant, which details the expenses for each worker for the possesso (or entry) of Pope Leo X to Rome in April 1513.

In this book David Martin argues, against Juergen Habermas, that religion and politics share a common mythic basis and that it is misleading to contrast the rationality of politics with the irrationality of religion. In contrast to Richard Dawkins (and New Atheists generally), Martin argues that the approach taken is brazenly unscientific and that the proclivity to violence is a shared feature of religion, nationalism and political ideology alike rooted in the demands of power and social solidarity.

English summary: The Philistines were immigrants from the Aegean region and Cyprus arriving at the southern coast of Palestine/Israel during the 12th century BCE. They created a distinct material culture in this region during the Iron Age (ca. 1.200-600 BCE). This book presents and discusses the corpus of iconographic representations of the Philistine culture. The assemblage studied includes objects in various media: decoration on pottery, figurative pottery, figurines, ivory carving, glyptics and other items. The figurative style and symbolism represented in the culture of the Philistines reflects both their bonds with their Aegean homeland and the ongoing process of interactions with the local host cultures in the southern Levant. Iconography thus provides an important set of evidence for understanding social, ethnic, religious and ideological aspects of the Philistine society and its neighbours in the East Mediterranean. German description: Die Philister waren Migranten aus der Agais und Zypern, die sich wahrend des 12. Jahrhunderts v.Chr. an der Sudkuste Palastinas/Israels ansiedelten. Wahrend der Eisenzeit (ca. 1200-600 v.Chr.) entwickelten sie eine distinguierte Kultur. David Ben-Shlomo prasentiert und diskutiert den Bestand der ikonographischen Darstellungen der Philisterkultur. Die Untersuchung schliesst verschiedenartige Objekte ein, u.a. Tonmalereien, Statuen, Eisenschnitzereien, Glyptik. Der figurliche Stil und der Symbolismus spiegelt sowohl die Ruckbindung der Philisterkultur an die agaische Heimat als auch den laufenden Prozess der Interaktion mit den lokalen Gastkulturen in der sudlichen Levante eindrucklich wider. Die Ikonographie liefert so ein bedeutendes Zeugnis, das die sozialen, ethnischen, religiosen und ideologischen Aspekte der Philister und ihrer Nachbarn im ostlichen Mittelmeerraum besser zu verstehen hilft.

This book began to take shape following a conference on the Statue of Zeus at Olympia held at the University of Queensland in July 2008. In line with the main themes of the conference, the book has two fundamental aims: the first is to recognise the unsurpassed reputation of the Zeus in antiquity, to move beyond the framework provided by the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and to treat the famous statue in depth, as befits its unique importance in ancient times; the second aim is to employ a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives in the hope of capturing more accurately than before something of that unique importance. The book is aimed at academic specialists in a variety of disciplines (such as art, archaeology, history, literature, and cultural poetics), though it is also intended to be accessible to undergraduates and certainly to research students. The audience will primarily be one interested in classical antiquity, but there are chapters which trace the story and influence of the Zeus through the Byzantine, Renaissance, and early modern periods, and into more recent centuries in both the northern and southern hemispheres.
