In spite of the amount of literature on the relationship between the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament, no consensus among the scholars has emerged as yet on how to explain both the similarities and the differences among the two corpora of religious writings. This volume contains a revised form of the contributions to an experts meeting held at the Catholic University of Leuven on December 2007 dedicated to explore the relationship among the two corpora and to understand both the commonalities and the differences between the two corpora from the perspective of the common ground from which both corpora have developed: the Hebrew Bible.

"To explain the logic of these arrangements, the author draws on the analytical resources of industrial economics and the theory of contracts. He addresses the winner-take-all character of many creative activities that brings wealth and renown to some artists while dooming others to frustration; why the "option" form of contract is so prevalent; and why even savvy producers get sucked into making "ten-ton turkeys," such as Heaven's Gate."--BOOK JACKET.

Les Caves du Vatican

Eine textsemantische und textstilistische Analyse

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Französisch - Linguistik, Note: 2,0, Universität Wien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Rahmen einer sprachwissenschaftlichen Analyse soll das Werk „Les Caves du Vatican“, von André Gide 1922 verfasst, als Ausgangspunkt für Untersuchungen im Bereich der Textlinguistik dienen. Da die Textlinguistik ein breites Gebiet darstellt, ist es notwendig, sich auf gewisse Bereiche zu beschränken. Für diese Arbeit wurden die Textsemantik und die Stilistik als Untersuchungsgegenstände gewählt. Die Arbeit besteht somit zwar aus zwei Teilen, der Leser wird allerdings schon bald feststellen, dass man vor allem die Stilistik im Grunde nicht separat von anderen linguistischen Bereichen analysieren kann, da der Stil des Autors alle Ebenen der Textlinguistik durchdringt. Der Teil der Stilistik ist somit dem Versuch gewidmet, den Stil André Gides im Speziellen zu untersuchen. Zuvor jedoch ist es unumgänglich, sich mit der Dramaturgie und dem Autor André Gide selbst auseinanderzusetzen, um eine ausgiebige Einführung in den behandelten Stoff zu bieten. Auch in den beiden Teilen der Analyse folgen spezifischere Einführungen, bevor anhand mehrerer Punkte ein allgemeines Verständnis für die Textsemantik und Textstilistik im Hinblick auf den Roman geschaffen werden soll.

Missouri Caves in History and Legend

Missouri has been likened to a “cave factory” because its limestone bedrock can be slowly dissolved by groundwater to form caverns, and the state boasts more than six thousand caves in an unbelievable variety of sizes, lengths, and shapes. Dwight Weaver has been fascinated by Missouri’s caves since boyhood and now distills a lifetime of exploration and research in a book that will equally fascinate readers of all ages. Missouri Caves in History and Legend records a cultural heritage stretching from the end of the ice age to the twenty-first century. In a grand tour of the state’s darkest places, Weaver takes readers deep underground to shed light on the historical significance of caves, correct misinformation about them, and describe the ways in which people have used and abused these resources. Weaver tells how these underground places have enriched our knowledge of extinct animals and early Native Americans. He explores the early uses of caves: for the mining of saltpeter, onyx, and guano; as sources of water; for cold storage; and as livestock shelters. And he tells how caves were used for burial sites and moonshine stills, as hideouts for Civil War soldiers and outlaws—revealing how Jesse James became associated with Missouri caves—and even as venues for underground dance parties in the late nineteenth century. Bringing caves into the modern era, Weaver relates the history of Missouri’s “show caves” over a hundred years—from the opening of Mark Twain Cave in 1886 to that of Onyx Mountain Caverns in 1990—and tells of the men and women who played a major role in expanding the state’s tourism industry. He also tracks the hunt for the buried treasure and uranium ore that have captivated cave explorers, documents the emergence of organized caving, and explains how caves now play a role in wildlife management by providing a sanctuary for endangered bats and other creatures. Included in the book is an overview of cave resources in twelve regions, covering all the counties that currently have recorded caves, as well as a superb selection of photos from the author’s extensive collection, depicting the history and natural features of these underground wonders. Missouri Caves in History and Legend is a riveting account that marks an important contribution to the state’s heritage and brings this world of darkness into the light of day.

André Gide, Les Caves du Vatican - eine sotie des Glaubens?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Französisch - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen (Romanisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: « André Gide: Les Caves du Vatican, Les Faux-Monnayeurs », 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Jahr 1914 erschienen in vier Folgen in der Nouvelle Revue Française die « Caves du Vatican » von André Gide unter der Gattungsbezeichnung der ‘sotie’. Die spätmittelalterlich humoristische Dramenform, die diese Bezeichnung geprägt hat, findet ihren Anknüpfungspunkt bei Gide in den gesellschaftskritischen und satirischen Tendenzen. In einem Moment der politischen, ökonomischen und religiösen Krise, die von einem Wertewandel erfasst wird, soll das dabei entstehende „Chaos“ in der Stilhaltung der sotie komisch kompensiert werden. Der Titel weist bereits auf ein angelegtes Spannungsverhältnis zwischen dem Heiligen und dem Profanen hin. Die Caves symbolisieren die Nachtseiten des Vatikans, d. h. die verborgenen Auswirkungen, die die katholische Weltanschauung bedingt. Inwiefern deren Darstellung nun dem beschriebenen Modell der sotie entspricht, soll im Laufe der Arbeit untersucht werden. Im zweiten Kapitel wird die Beschreibung der verschiedenen religiösen Elemente und Anschauungen zu einer Analyse ihrer Darstellung in den Caves du Vatican führen und deren jeweilige Funktion im Hinblick auf den Modus der sotie beleuchtet werden. Die religiöse Kritik soll im Rahmen der histoire interpretiert und auch auf der sekundären Ebene des discours untersucht werden. Die Ergebnisse werden in dem Kontext des entworfenen Mikrokosmoses der Caves du Vatican als monde subverti charakterisiert und im dritten Kapitel geordnet. Die Frage nach der Auflösung der sotie wird am Ende der Arbeit zur Diskussion gebracht und soll zu einer abschließenden Bewertung der satirischen Glaubenskritik im Hinblick auf die ironische Verknüpfung mit dem Textganzen führen.

Caves and the Ancient Greek Mind

Descending Underground in the Search for Ultimate Truth

Author: Yulia Ustinova

Publisher: OUP Oxford

ISBN: 0191563420

Category: History

Page: 328

Caves and the Ancient Greek Mind analyses techniques of searching for ultimate wisdom in ancient Greece. The Greeks perceived mental experiences of exceptional intensity as resulting from divine intervention. They believed that to share in the immortals' knowledge, one had to liberate the soul from the burden of the mortal body by attaining an altered state of consciousness, that is, by merging with a superhuman being or through possession by a deity. These states were often attained by inspired mediums, `impresarios of the gods' - prophets, poets, and sages - who descended into caves or underground chambers. Yulia Ustinova juxtaposes ancient testimonies with the results of modern neuropsychological research. This novel approach enables an examination of religious phenomena not only from the outside, but also from the inside: it penetrates the consciousness of people who were engaged in the vision quest, and demonstrates that the darkness of the caves provided conditions vital for their activities.
