      Summary
      • Unlike most theologians of his age, Martin Bucer had a wide range of vision with respect to European affairs: In addition to his contacts within Alsace and Germany, he established relations with almost every country on the Continent. It was his ecumenical attitude that always led him to mediate between the parties in the religious battles of his time. His deep commitment and his objective to reach an agreement can be traced in all his activities, works and letters. As Bucer did not found a religious denomination himself, his theological and historical importance has been underestimated for a long time. In addition his handwriting is hard to decipher, which makes it difficult to deal with his works, especially with his letters. Bucer's letters (BCor) have been published in chronological order as part of the "Opera omnia" since 1979 (Leiden, Brill, I: 1979; II: 1989; III: 1995; IV: 2000). Since the editor, Jean Rott (Strasbourg), died Bucer's correspondence has been edited in Erlangen. This academic edition of source material will provide future research with a broad basis for significant aspects of Reformation history about which very little is known.

      Summary
      • "The Anchor Bible" series offers new, book-by-book translations of the "Old and New Testament" and the "Apocrypha", with commentary. This volume on the "Book of Daniel" has been prepared by two distinguished biblical scholars from the faculty of the Catholic University of America: Alexander A. Di Lella, Professor of Old Testament, and the late Louis F. Hartman, Professor of Semitic Languages."The Book of Daniel" was written as resistance literature, to strengthen and console loyal Jews of the second century B.C. who had to endure religious, economic, and social oppression at the hands of Antiochus I. The inspiring stories in which Daniel and his companions Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego survive the ordeals of the lions' den and the fiery furnace dramatize for believers of all time the ultimate test of faith - the willingness to risk one's life for one's beliefs."The Book of Daniel" also includes the famous incident of 'the handwriting on the wall' and recounts the four vivid dream-visions or apocalypses which, through symbols and signs, offered interpretations of history and predictions of future deliverance.

      Summary
      • This volume contains the full texts of 175 acts issued under the seal of King Alexander III, together with notes on a further 155 'lost acts' that survive only in notices. These acts, many of which have never been published before, have been collected from a variety of archives in Scotland, England, Belgium and France. The Introduction examines the administrative contexts of the later thirteenth century in which the royal chancery drafted and authenticated charters, brieves and other written instruments, and the varied sources from which the collection is compiled. The texts include full Latin transcriptions and detailed English-language summaries of the contents of each act, together with a series of notes and comments on context and significance. By drawing together both original archive sources and widely scattered published sources, the volume offers a unique opportunity to understand how Scottish government and administration operated in the key period before the reign of Robert Bruce. The Regesta Regum Scottorum series has already made available in print a definitive edition of the written acts of several of the medieval kings of Scotland. It remains the standard reference for Scottish, British and European scholars interested in the history of royal chanceries, the evolution of medieval royal government and the growth of literate modes of expression in the Middle Ages.
      • Review: "It would be a niggardly reviewer who would do other than heartily applaud the editors and publisher for this splendid addition to a series which is so vital to anyone with a serious interest in medieval Scotland." -- Norman H. Reid, The Scottish Historical Review

      Summary
      • Acclaimed writer and historian Noel Malcolm presents his sensational discovery of a new work by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679): a propaganda pamphlet on behalf of the Habsburg side in the Thirty Years' War, translated by Hobbes from a Latin original. Malcolm's book explores a fascinating episode in seventeenth-century history, illuminating both the practice of early modern propaganda and the theory of "reason of state".
      • Review: The bringing to light of a previously-unknown work by a major writer or thinker is always a cause of excitement, and even more so when the author in question is a figure of the stature of Hobbes. Noel Malcolm's discovery amongst the papers of the first Earl of Newcastle of an imcomplete manuscript translation, unmistakably in Hobbes' handwriting, of an inflammatory European political pamphlet of the 1620s, is thus a tantalising and provocative event...Most professional scholars...will close this slim volume with mingled emotions of admiration and despair: admiration at the reach, precision and judgement of Malcolm's scholarship, despair over whether they could themselves emulate it. David Womersley, Social Affairs Unit Web Review Noel Malcolm's book consists of six stage-setting chapters, Hobbes's English translation of a manuscript version of a pamphlet written in Latin during the Thirty Years' War, and the Latin text of the published version. Malcolm's chapters are a tour de force of scholarship...Malcolm's careful, erudite edition of the translation and his discussion of the minutiae of the Thirty Years' War must be lauded. A. P. Martinich, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews This book...offers what good history should: the recovery of the past, in all of its forgotten complexity and detail. In a day when most academic writing achieves only clever hermeneutics, reading Noel Malcolm is a bracing pleasure. Times Literary Supplement

      Summary
      • This text provides numerous examples and thorough coverage of procedures for assessing and instructing struggling readers of all ages. In keeping with current theory, the text emphasizes prevention and early intervention. It is based on the premise that student performance is variable and that assessment and instruction are planned and modified to meet the varied needs and levels of students. Gunning does not subscribe to a medical model that emphasizes deficiencies, but rather focuses on what students can do. This text calls for inclusion, not exclusion, but recognizes that struggling learners need expert, carefully planned assessment and instruction. Assessment coverage includes a grounding in basic concepts of tests and measurement. While formal, standardized measures are described, emphasis is placed upon informal but highly regarded techniques such as the informal reading inventory, miscue analysis, running records, observation, think-alouds, holistic scoring of writing, and portfolio assessment. In addition to chapters devoted specifically to assessment, ways to connect assessment and instruction are mentioned throughout the text. Coverage of instructional techniques is thorough and practical. Nine chapters are devoted to instructional techniques.

      Summary
      • Concerned with the basic materials of documents, literature, art, place-names, inscriptions, coins, buildings and archaeological finds, the twenty-two original studies that make up this 1971 text brought fresh understanding to various important topics in Anglo-Saxon scholarship. Native, continental, Scandinavian and Irish elements in five centuries of Anglo-Saxon history are represented. Each contribution exemplifies the methods and expertise of a modern specialisation, but collectively the essays show the value of a joint approach. They form a fitting tribute to a scholar who has kept primary sources to the forefront in her own work and who has illuminated an exceptionally wide range of them.

      Summary
      • Handwriting is more than just a means of communication. Each time you pick up a pen, you create your own art which draws from all the light and dark areas of your natal chart. By learning how to spot your own natal aspects in your handwriting, you will open a whole new door to the hidden potential within your horoscope. As you begin to understand how your handwriting reflects your natal chart, so you can harness the energy of your predictive work by changing the way you write - and help a difficult aspect to gain a more helpful expression. AstroGraphology synthesizes handwriting and astrology in a totally new paradigm that will delight and inspire you with new power to bring change into your life.
      • Review: "AstroGraphology takes readers into what could become a new field of analysis or psychotherapy. Creative, innovative, concise and practical, the methodology shown here would be of interest to anyone who wants to decipher handwriting and who already knows the basics of astrology." (Dell Horoscope June 2010.) "Written with great clarity and illustrated with numerous examples, the book is a joy to read. The early part of the book looks at the basics of graphology for those unfamiliar with the insights that can be gained from handwriting. Even just this simple overview gets you thinking about how much is actually revealed in the notes you scribble down as reminders, let alone any long letters you may have written. After this the book moves on to the links between the chart and the handwriting of people. There are many examples and you really feel you are gaining an intimate peek into each person's life. How to help change your inner world by changing your handwriting and approach to life is also discussed. Overall it is a fascinating book and well worth reading. the connection between astrology and graphology has never been explored in such a direct and detailed way. If you have any interest in handwriting I would heartily recommend this book." (John Green, The Astrological Journal, May/June 2010.)

In 1845 he returned to India and spent 4 years in Darjeeling before returning to England in 1849. He had a passionate interest in Zoology and amassed a large collection of specimens. He employed local artists to paint the specimens in his collection. These were all sent back to England and he presented both specimens and drawings to The British Museum in 1854 and 1858; these were transferred to The British Museum (Natural History) in 1881.

      Summary
      • Abstract: This thesis presents a series of studies in early modern manuscript culture based on Chetham's Library MS A.4.15 (MC15). These studies develop an understanding of the reception of texts in manuscripts through an analysis of their copying, dissemination and collection: concepts which are linked by their treatment of manuscripts collections as texts whose processes of production are indelibly registered in their physical form. Chapter 1 reviews the methods by which scholars have engaged with manuscript collections, and proposes that a series of 'object studies' based on texts from MC15 is a strong way of engaging with the collection, allowing ready comparisons of diverse material characteristics. Chapter 2 extends these arguments through close analysis of the processes of production of several manuscript collections, culminating in an extended critical description of MC15. Chapters 3 to 6 read a series of texts of MC15 in comparison with other copies. Chapter 3 argues that handwriting analysis gives essential evidence for different modes of copying epigrams, and suggests the ways in which they are significant. Chapter 4 presents an account of a verse libel that was copied many times in the seventeenth century; building on the work of the previous chapter, it argues that the material dimension of manuscript libels have a great deal to offer more general narratives of early Stuart history. Chapter 5 concerns letters of the second Earl of Essex, whose reception in various combinations of material in manuscript collections are best contextualised through readings found in print. Chapter 6, a study of metrical psalms, contextualizes the very limited dissemination of metrical psalms by amateur and professional scribes within a 'psalm culture' dominated by print. Taken collectively, the chapters of this thesis attest to the heterogeneity of MC15 as a collection; through their attention to processes of copying, dissemination and collection, they demonstrate some of the most characteristic features of early modern manuscripts.

      Summary
      • This biographical work traces the life and career of Ademar of Chabannes, a monk, historian, liturgist and hagiographer who lived at the turn of the first Christian millennium. Utilizing the collection of over 1000 folios of autograph manuscript that Ademar left behind, this text reconstructs the development of Ademar's career and the events of his day. Richard A. Landes's research also elaborates on the realization (first articulated over 60 years ago by the historian Louis Saltet) that in 1029 Ademar suffered a humiliating defeat at the height of his career and spent his final five years producing a dossier of forgeries and fictions about his own contemporaries that succeeded in misleading historians from the 12th century right up to the 20th. This text systematically examines the evidence and the implications for the understanding of the period, offering an explanation of how these remarkable developments might have occurred.
      • Review: Relics, Apocalypse, and the Deceits of History is an intelligent and imaginative study of an author who accounts for a large proportion of the surviving narrative sources for Aquitaine in the first third of the eleventh century and is consequently central to our understanding of important movements such as the Peace of God, pilgrimage, and the cult of saints. Ademar left a substantial corpus, much of it autograph. This provides the cornerstone of Landes's challenging methodology whereby he calibrates shifts in Ademar's literary identity--as copyist, historian, liturgist, and mythographer--against a detailed biographical reconstruction which is in turn interwoven with the religious, social, and political currents affecting the 'millennial generation'. Landes excels in applying skilled palaeographical, codicological, and textual analysis to wider issues...This is an ambitious, original, methodologically exciting, and closely argued work of great interest. -- Marcus Bull English Historical Review [UK] On August 3, 1029, Ademar of Chabannes suffered a humiliating defeat when his plans for a triumphal procession of the relics of St. Martial and the chanting of his new liturgy in Martial's honor turned into a fiasco. He spent the next five years writing forgeries and fictions about his contemporaries which have misled historians up to the 20th century. He left behind more than 1,000 folios of manuscripts. This account by Professor Landes of Boston University sheds new light on the cult of saints, apocalypticism, scriptoria and their manuscripts, and historiography.
