Andrea Fara (Ed.): Italia ed Europa centro-orientale tra Medioevo ed Età moderna: Economia, Società, Cultura

It appears reductive to define the historical processes that characterised central and eastern Europe in medieval and modern times as a deviation or involution from the starting point of the western European model and outcomes, or as patent backwardness of the former compared to the latter. This book presents recent research, focusing on several territories and their economic, social and cultural relations with the Italian Peninsula, and offers thought-provoking new insights.

Thomas Schwitter: Erinnerung im Umbruch. Die Fortsetzung, Drucklegung und Ablösung der »Grandes chroniques de France« im 15. und frühen 16. Jahrhundert

Thomas Schwitter reconstruit de nombreuses étapes de l’évolution des "Grandes chroniques de France" et s'intéresse également à des ouvrages créés dans leur environnement et qui n'ont guère été étudiés jusqu'à présent. L’étude se focalise sur la représentation de la guerre civile française (1407-1435) et du conflit avec les rois d'Angleterre, qui y est lié, ainsi que sur la lutte des différents partis pour la souveraineté d'interprétation de ces décennies.

Adreas Kruse, Eric Schmitt (Eds.): „… der Augenblick ist mein und nehm ich den in Acht“. Daseinsthemen und Lebenskontexte alter Menschen

What does baroque poetry have to do with the themes of existence of elderly people? The reader of this book will also find out. But first and foremost, it is about numerous aspects that shape the lives of old people, about the prerequisites for contentment in old age, about the feeling of being used, about dealing with one's own limits, about creativity and mental health. In addition, the authors ask about the quality of care and the socio-cultural structure of services for the elderly and analyse the representation of age in the media in international comparison.

"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth" - but what was before that? These and other questions on the topic of RAUM & ZEIT (SPACE & TIME) lead the 21 authors of the research magazine "Ruperto Carola" not only into the Old Testament, but also into the depths of space, into complex biological processes, to modern sporting competitions or to Einstein's theory of relativity.
