Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president.

FIRST FOUR NOTES, THE

Music critic Matthew Guerrieri reaches back before Beethoven's time to examine what might have influenced him in writing his Fifth Symphony, and forward into our own time to describe the ways in which the Fifth has, in turn, asserted its influence. He uncovers possible sources for the famous opening notes in the rhythms of ancient Greek poetry and certain French Revolutionary songs and symphonies. Guerrieri confirms that, contrary to popular belief, Beethoven was not deaf when he wrote the Fifth. He traces the Fifth's influence in China, Russia, and the United States (Emerson and Thoreau were passionate fans) and shows how the masterpiece was used by both the Allies and the Nazis in World War II. Altogether, a fascinating piece of musical detective work--a treat for music lovers of every stripe.

Douglas Canfield Violence and the Secular

Doug Canfield's poems are the careful expressions of a man who has seen deeply into the world and who has understood what he has seen. I suppose this is the essential definition of the poet, and Doug Canfield was definitively a poet. He has given us the great gift of his vision and his humanity. His poems are a pleasure, a revelation, and an honor to read.Scott Momaday, novelist and poet, Pulitzer Prize winner for House Made Of Dawn.In Violence and the Secular Douglas Canfield flays the reader with the violence endemic to our culture and within himself; but as he was dying, he wrote unforgettable lyrics to his family and to life. This collection embodies the complexity of the flawed but remarkable man he was - scholar, teacher, husband, father, poet.Richard Shelton, poet, author of The Tattooed Desert, The Bus to Veracruz and Going Back to Bisbee.Douglas Canfield surveys in unvarnished but poignant style the violence that seems endemic to humankind, reaching from his own experience into well-known violent acts of the contemporary world, and on to those of history and mythology. At times, with great effect, he calls in phrases from other poets past and present to strengthen his own powerful arguments. From poem to poem the poetry flows in a rich and swelling current, in free verse or sometimes in iambic form that does not emerge as iambic until examined - which is to say as the finest kind of iambic rhythm.L.

Gerald L. Stevens New Testament Greek Intermediate. From Morphology to Translation

Description:New Testament Greek Intermediate is the companion volume to New Testament Greek Primer. The Intermediate text reviews grammar, expands vocabulary, and exposes the student to more New Testament context. Grammar review intends to consolidate gains from the Primer, but deepens the discussion, adds more illustrative paradigms, and includes more syntax. Vocabulary acquisition expands the Primer's frequency base of 50 or more times down to a frequency of 15 or more times, including second aorist forms. This vocabulary acquisition is divided by frequency into seven vocabulary lists ready for seven vocabulary exams. The exercises have longer passages both to increase the student's translation stamina and to bring more contextualization to bear on the act of translation. In addition, the text includes informative illustrations and graphics, beautiful layout, full indexes, a glossary, charts, paradigms, and principal parts for even more usability. By the end of this text, the student is thoroughly prepared for Greek exegesis and advanced courses on Greek syntax.Endorsements:""Gerald Stevens' 'New Testament Greek Intermediate' follows the time-honored deductive approach to learning second-year Koine Greek.

Henri Pirenne Mohammed and Charlemagne

2017 Reprint of 1939 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. Henri Pirenne's classic history of Europe between the fifth and ninth centuries, Mohammed and Charlemagne, although published on the eve of the Second World War, remains an important work to this day. His famous summary said, "Without Islam, the Frankish Empire would have probably never existed, and Charlemagne, without Muhammad, would be inconceivable." That is, he rejected the notion that barbarian invasions in the 4th and 5th centuries caused the collapse of the Roman Empire. Instead the Muslim conquest of north Africa made the Mediterranean a barrier, cutting western Europe off from the east, enabling the Carolingians, especially Charlemagne, to create a new, distinctly western form of government.

John Goldingay Daniel and the Twelve Prophets for Everyone

The Book of Daniel begins with the trials of the Judahites in the aftermath of Jerusalem's destruction by the Babylonians in 587 BC, when many were forced to live as immigrants in a strange land. It continues with visions relating to the trials of Judahites back in Jerusalem in a time of persecution four centuries later, visions that promise them God's deliverance.The twelve shorter prophets are situated between the eighth and fifth centuries and speak both warnings and instructions to God's people. For instance, Amos's visions warn of Israel's downfall, Jonah speaks to a wayward generation in Nineveh, and Haggai encourages the people to rebuild God's temple in Jerusalem. Although these prophets appear at different times and preach to different audiences, they all have at their core an understanding of God's overwhelming desire to connect with and reconcile himself to his people.Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament.

Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced Новинка

Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced

This unprecedented volume documents the revolutionary work of African American fashion designer Stephen Burrows—celebrating some of the most innovative and vibrant years in American Fashion. In the late 1960s, New York was the epicenter of creative vitality and artistic expression, when, as Phyllis Magidson writes in this book’s introduction, “Clothing became a masquerade, Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain a costume party, weekends a perpetual Halloween.” This was the New York City that Stephen Burrows embraced as his own, and it would inspire him to create clothes that would help revolutionize American Fashion and further solidify its credibility abroad. This unprecedented volume documents Burrows’ creative output during the formative and at once incendiary years of 1968 to 1983. Each of the book’s four essays offers a unique perspective into the work of an artist at the height of his creative powers: Daniela Morera presents a perspective from abroad focusing on a new kind of femininity characterized by the freedom of Burrows’ clothes—light and fluid fabrics and an instinctive sense of color, inspired by the music and dance culture of the ’70s and ’80s; Glenn O’Brien explores the reciprocity between Burrows’ designs and the New York City art scene, partying with Warhol and the Studio 54-going elite; how Burrows got from Newark to Fifth Avenue, and from Fifth Avenue to Seventh, is the subject of Laird Persson’s essay; while Magidson’s introduction is a vivid depiction of the r...

Michael Bräutigam Paradosis Vol. 3. Christology Michael Bräutigam Paradosis Vol. 3. Christology Новинка

Michael Bräutigam Paradosis Vol. 3. Christology

This journal is entitled PARADOSIS, a Greek word meaning ‘tradition’. PARADOSIS is chosen as the title of the journal because it expresses the sense that the theological enterprise is a continuous ministry, the ongoing ‘traditioning’ responsibility of the Christian church to carry forward the deposit of faith from the past, while rearticulating it in dialogue with the contexts, mindsets and issues of current culture.Admittedly, ‘tradition’ can have negative connotations, as in Jesus’ criticisms of scribes and Pharisees who broke the commandments of God for the sake of their human traditions. However, it has positive connotations when used in relation to the gospel of Christ and the fundamental Christian teachings received and passed on by the apostles. These form the bedrock of the Christian faith. Early believers were urged to hold fast to, contend for, and pass on this tradition.The theological implications of the gospel traditions occupied the best minds in Christendom during the early centuries following the apostolic age. The consensual conclusions they reached constitute Christian orthodoxy and the basis of subsequent theological endeavours down through the Middle Ages, the Reformation period, the Enlightenment, and the theological enterprise today. Christian theology must serve pastoral ministry, evangelism, cross cultural mission and inter-faith dialogue. From the earliest centuries Christian leaders, evangelists and apologists sought to apply theology to the pastoral...

Priscilla Diana Maryon Turner THE SEPTUAGINT VERSION OF CHAPTERS 1-39 OF THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL. The Language, the Translation Technique and the Bearing on the Hebrew Text

THE STUDY was originally intended to expose the manner and method of the Old Greek version of chapters i‑xxxix of the Book of Ezekiel, with a view to a cautious assessment of its value for Old Testament philology and textual criticism. It was soon clear, however, that the enterprise could not go forward without considerable work upon the Greek language, the results of which turned out to be more relevant, as well as bulkier, than had been expected. The argument is made that the matters of unity, date and proven­ance and Hebraism must be studied as Greek Language questions methodologically distinct from and foundational to questions of translation technique. It is demonstrated that the nature of the text, the state of studies, and the need for a system­atic approach to the application of the Old Greek to Hebrew text and interpretation combined to produce a pyramidal structure, in which study of the Greek of the version in Part I is the foundation upon which study of renditional method in Part II is based, and study of the bearing upon the Hebrew text in Part III rests on both together. It is also shown that at each stage there were few if any precedents for such an approach to an Old Greek text.

Ralph Russell A Thousand Yearnings. A Book of Urdu Poetry and Prose

For many people, Urdu is indelibly associated with a bygone era: the cultural renaissance of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in the face of colonial oppression, heady mushairas and romantic poetry. For others, it brings to mind the gritty prose of the Progressive Writers portraying the grim social realities of the mid-twentieth century.In this luminous collection of Urdu poetry and prose, Ralph Russell expands our world of Urdu letters to include folk and oral narratives, besides prose and poetry. By situating each form historically, he gives us a refreshing perspective on the diverse literary cultures and histories of India.Besides canonical short stories by the likes of Manto and Premchand, there is Ismat Chughtai’s a little-known autobiographical essay about her relationship with her brother, the writer Azim Beg Chughtai. There are creation tales from the Quran, popular stories of Akbar and Birbal, along with the legendary exploits of Sikandar (Alexander the Great). Selections from the sublime poetry of Mir, Ghalib and others are supplemented by astute commentary and roman transcriptions of the original Urdu. Farhatullah Beg’s brilliantly imagined account of the ‘last Delhi mushaira’ captures a moment in time never seen again, with the horrors of 1857 just around the corner.An accessible introduction for unfamiliar readers, and a pleasurable companion for those familiar with Urdu literature, this volume is a treasure trove of stories, poetry and history.

David Gerspach The Fifth Age; Verdan Chronicles Volume 9

Eight books and over two thousand years ago the story of Verdan began with The Fourth Age. The promise of peace continues to prove elusive and once again the world calls upon Celecia and Dakoran to safeguard their future. Mriccon has returned from a realm of the gods with the realization that the world is about to enter The Fifth Age. There's only one problem...The Fifth Age is not supposed to exist. Terek's dreams are shattered and all he has left are schemes of vengeance and a plan that may yet doom all life on Verdan. Once again, the Rising Circle surfaces with a plan so subversive that it is both reviled and embraced by those in power. The Fifth Age will take the reader from a prison in Emdon to the palace in Seahaven to the swamps of Kyrotha and to no less than three godly realms. The heroes of the world will suffer losses along the way, but will move forward with grim determination toward a cataclysmic conclusion that will help shape not only the future of Verdan, but of the entire universe.

J. B. Bury History of the Later Roman Empire from Arcadius to Irene, Vol. I

In the fourth and fifth centuries A.D. a great change came over the face of Europe; the political order of things was broken up. This movement ushered in the Middle Ages, and it presents a noteworthy parallel to that other great European movement which ushered out the Middle Ages, the movement of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries by which the spiritual order of things was broken up. The atmosphere of the age in which the Empire of Rome was dismembered was the christian religion ; the atmosphere of the age in which the Church of Rome was ruptured was the Renaissance of culture.-from Chapter I: "Christianity and Paganism"This classic two-volume history of the Later Roman Empire, first published in 1889, remains one of the most readable works on the era, and is highly recommended for students of Roman culture.Volume I explores:the influence of Christianity on societyelements of disintegration in the Roman Empire the administration of the empireConstantinoplethe Germans in the eastJohn Chrysostominvasions of the Hunslife and manners in the fifth centurythe OstrogothsGreek literature of the fifth centurythe age of Justinianthe Persian warsthe reconquest of Africa and Italythe great plague and much, much more.British historian JOHN BAGNELL BURY (1861-1927) was professor of modern history at Cambridge.

William Smith A Smaller History of Greece. From the Earliest Times to the Roman Conquest

The literary education of a Spartan youth was of a most restricted kind. He was taught to despise literature as unworthy of a warrior, while the study of eloquence and philosophy, which were cultivated at Athens with such extraordinary success, was regarded at Sparta with contempt.-from Chapter IVIntended for school use, this 1865 abridgement of Smith's more comprehensive History of Greece is an excellent introduction to classical history for readers of all ages. From the geography and distant origins of the Greek nation and culture to the Greek colonies and Persian and Peloponnesian Wars through the conquests of Alexander the Great, this clear, concise, highly readable work is a pocket-size Greek history for antiquity buffs to treasure and refer to again and again.British classicist and lexicographer SIR WILLIAM SMITH (1813¬-1893) was editor of the Quarterly Review, and also wrote Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities (1842), Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology (1849), and Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography (1857).

Greek-English New Testament

"This eighth edition differs basically from its predecessors in the Greek part, which now represents the 27th edition of the Novum Testamentum Graece. The Greek text remains unchanged from that of the 26th edition, which is also that of the Fourth (and Third) edition of the United Bible Societies' Greek New Testament, but significant changes have been made in the critical apparatus. A new appendix (II) gives additional and explicit information about the readings of Greek manuscripts. For detailed discussion, especially about new features in the 27th edition, see pp. 3*-6* below. We express our sincere and profound gratitude, first of all to our colleagues in the Institute for New Testament Textual Research, who have all contributed in special ways, participating in their respective areas with rare dedication. Special credit is due Gerd Mink and Beate Koster, without whose critical and constructive counsel in so many details it would have been impossible to achieve the present edition, not to mention many other projects as well. The following colleagues were individually responsible for various aspects of the undertaking. Klaus Witte revised the critical apparatus from newly reviewed collations, building on the work of Klaus Junack with the 26th edition. Klaus Wachtel together with Wolfgang Richter was responsible especially for data on the papyri and the uncials. The review of oriental versions was entrusted to Andreas Juckel (Syriac) and Gerd Mink aided by Franz-Juirgen Schm...

Doug Canfield's poems are the careful expressions of a man who has seen deeply into the world and who has understood what he has seen. I suppose this is the essential definition of the poet, and Doug Canfield was definitively a poet. He has given us the great gift of his vision and his humanity. His poems are a pleasure, a revelation, and an honor to read.Scott Momaday, novelist and poet, Pulitzer Prize winner for House Made Of Dawn.In Violence and the Secular Douglas Canfield flays the reader with the violence endemic to our culture and within himself; but as he was dying, he wrote unforgettable lyrics to his family and to life. This collection embodies the complexity of the flawed but remarkable man he was - scholar, teacher, husband, father, poet.Richard Shelton, poet, author of The Tattooed Desert, The Bus to Veracruz and Going Back to Bisbee.Douglas Canfield surveys in unvarnished but poignant style the violence that seems endemic to humankind, reaching from his own experience into well-known violent acts of the contemporary world, and on to those of history and mythology. At times, with great effect, he calls in phrases from other poets past and present to strengthen his own powerful arguments. From poem to poem the poetry flows in a rich and swelling current, in free verse or sometimes in iambic form that does not emerge as iambic until examined - which is to say as the finest kind of iambic rhythm.L.
