Newly published: Frankwalt Möhren's new edition of the cookbook Il libro de la cocina

Originating from the 2nd third of the 14th century the cookbook Il libro de la cocina contains about 200 recipes and presents the whole range of Old Italian cuisine. It is part of a cooking tradition which dates back to the oriental cultural area and which itself was already widely received in Europe. In this edition this is strongly proven by connecting the recipes with many oriental and European predecessors and successors. A complete and critical glossary makes the texts accessible; vernacular and Latin translations are also included.

New publication on the subject of art law: is edition limitation in photographic art binding?

In his dissertation Die limitierte Auflage (“The Limited Edition”), Heidelberg lawyer Felix M. Michl examines the legal issues concerning edition limitation in photographic art. He focuses particularly on whether such “promises of exclusivity” by artists, i.e. to limit the print run, are legally binding and can thus be claimed by a collector. This question has become especially relevant in recent times, with photography becoming one of the most popular and economically lucrative art forms over the last few decades. Individual prints can sell for millions, something that is difficult to imagine without edition limitation.

North & South is the main topic of the newly published issue of the research journal Ruperto Carola

In its newest edition the journal “Ruperto Carola” focuses on a highly topical subject – the relationship between NORTH & SOUTH. The articles by 20 Heidelberg University scholars deal with global issues and challenges such as the refugee crisis, climate change and the asymmetrical relations between the countries of the Global South and the Global North.

New release: Wir haben ja alle Deutschland nicht gekannt
by Wolfgang Kemp

Wir haben ja alle Deutschland nicht gekannt – The images and texts of Wolfgang Kemp’s new 500 page book are concerned with Germany during the Weimar Republic. After 1918 Germany had to find a new definition for its identity on a political and social level as well as to rediscover itself as a unity in terms of geography and culture. This process can be described as „Inner colonisation“. Scientists and artists began to compensate the many losses by tapping into the dimension of the „inner“ Germany - its unique cultural density - which in France would be called „la France profonde“. The pressure to be economical was converted into an economy of abundance of spiritual and material wealth.

New issue of "online - Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet"

The new special issue of online - Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet 10 (2016) is - once more - dedicated to "Religion in Digital Games (RESPAWNED)". As the "gamers" among our readers will be very well aware of, respawn is a constant occurence in most videogames. However, while in-game it usually is rather annoying, this issue is the - very positive - result of some kind of respawn, namely the submission of many great papers by highly innovative authors doing research in the field of digital games and gaming. Enjoy!
