    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 42.00

    The University of Basel was founded in 1460 on the basis of a privilege from Pope Pius II.

  • Kodex und Kanonby Martin Wallraff

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 28.00

    Christianity and the book ? this is hardly a superficial relationship. Their histories date back to about the same period: the rise of Christianity and the widespread adoption of the codex both occurred in Late Antiquity. There are also substantive connections, for Christianity was quick to put the new medium to use ? and for its part, the codex had... more...

  • Die Kestoi des Julius Africanus und ihre Überlieferungby Martin Wallraff; Laura Mecella

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    A new form of organizing knowledge was adopted during the time of the Roman Empire, with works such as the Cesti of Julius Africanus (3rd century AD) playing a central role in the process.

    Primus Verlag 2013; US$ 33.17

    Im Jahr 2011 jährt sich die Romreise des jungen Augustinermönchs Martin Luther zum 500. Mal. Doch welches Rom sah Luther im Jahr 1511? Wie nahm er den amtierenden Papst Julius II. wahr, den er später wenig schmeichelhaft als „Blutsäufer“ bezeichnete und wie die äußere Prachtentfaltung der Kurie, die sich nicht nur in der Großbaustelle Petersdom manifestierte?... more...

  • Chrysostomosbilder in 1600 Jahrenby Martin Wallraff; Rudolf Brändle

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 238.00

    The Church Father John Chrysostom died 1600 years ago. Hardly any Christian from Antiquity has done more to form the identity of the most varied church traditions right up to the present day. While Protestants honour him as a preacher (hence the honorific Chrysostomos? ?Golden-mouthed?), the Orthodox Churches know him as the progenitor of... more...

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00

    Iulius Africanus (3rd cent.) is a fascinating intellectual in a period of transition.

The preserved fragments of the Cesti treat military, technical, medical... more...
