Die Vorträge dieses Bandes gewähren mit Herodot einen Blick auf die Anfänge der antiken Berichte über außergriechische Völker und Länder, lassen teilhaben an der Reise eines Römers in die Vergangenheit und an den legendären Reisen Brendans zur “terra repromissionis” und der Isländer nach “Vinland”. Untersucht werden Erscheinungsformen des Raumes im Pilgerbericht des chinesischen Mönches Xuanzang, Strukturen und Topoi arabischer Reiseberichte und die Sinaibeschreibung des Metropoliten von Rhodos von 1577/92. Ein Forschungsbericht über Palästrina-Pilgerberichte der deutschen Literatur des Mittelalters und der frühen Neuzeit im allgemeinen fehlt genausowenig wie der über dasEvagatorium des Dominikanermönchs Felix Fabri im speziellen. Die Orientreise des Joos van Ghistele, Ludovico de VarthemasItinerar und die wundersamen Reisen des Portugiesen Mendes Pinto im Fernen Osten sind ebenso Themen dieses faszinierenden Tagungsbandes eines interdisziplinären Symposiums aus dem Jahre 1998 wie dieMuscowitische vnd Persische Reise von Olearius und Fleming, ein Kabinettstück des Hofjuweliers Dinglinger aus Gold, Edelsteinen und Perlen, die Weltumsegelung Bougainvilles, SternesSentimental Journey oder Stil und Beobachtung beim reisenden Alexander von Humboldt. Die Untersuchung der Poetik früher chinesischer Berichte von Reisen in den Westen und ein Ausblick in Form von Wünschen an den Reisebericht 2000 schließen den Band, der mit umfangreichem Namen- und Werktitelregister vesehen ist, ab. Die Beiträge dieses Buches verstehen sich als Beisteine zu einer Literaturgeschichte der Reiseberichte und Länderbeschreibungen.

New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe returns to the 1930s era of her acclaimed novel The Upper Room with a dazzling portrait of two very different couples whose fast friendship is no match for shattering betrayal . . . A solid marriage, a thriving business, and the esteem of their close-knit Alabama community—Joyce and Odell Watson have every reason to count their blessings. Their marriage has given well-off Joyce a chance at the family she’s always wanted—and granted Odell a shot to escape grinding poverty. But all that respectability and status comes at a cost. Just once, Joyce and Odell want to taste life’s wild side, without consequences . . . When their new neighbors, Milton and Yvonne Hamilton, turn out to be bootleggers, the Watsons plunge headlong into good times and fast living. . . . Until revelations of Milton and Yvonne’s seedy past make the Watsons think twice about how much time they spend together. But the Hamiltons won’t be dismissed so easily. The Watsons soon find them invading every area of their lives, even discovering their long-held secrets. Now, the Watsons must tread carefully to keep the neighbors from destroying their perfect world . . . “Impossible to put down.” —Susan Holloway Scott, author of I, Eliza Hamilton “Monroe reveals sympathetic aspects and complex motivations for each character in this engrossing setting.” —Booklist

The aesthetic changes in late Roman literature speak to the foundations of modern Western culture. The dawn of a modern way of being in the world, one that most Europeans and Americans would recognize as closely ancestral to their own, is to be found not in the distant antiquity of Greece nor in the golden age of a Roman empire that spanned the Mediterranean, but more fundamentally in the original and problematic fusion of Greco-Roman culture with a new and unexpected foreign element-the arrival of Christianity as an exclusive state religion. For a host of reasons, traditionalist scholarship has failed to give a full and positive account of the formal, aesthetic and religious transformations of ancient poetics in Late Antiquity. The Poetics of Late Latin Literature attempts to capture the excitement and vibrancy of the living ancient tradition reinventing itself in a new context in the hands of a series of great Latin writers mainly from the fourth and fifth centuries AD. A series of the most distinguished expert voices in later Latin poetry as well as some of the most exciting new scholars have been specially commissioned to write new papers for this volume.

Auriane, warrior maiden of the Chattian tribe, was sworn to remove the cursed Romans from the lands of the Rhine. Then fate intervened: she was captured, brought to Rome in chains, and trained to fight in the arenas as a gladiator - only to fall in love with a Roman aristocrat, Marcus Arrius Julianus, and become his wife. Marcus and Auriane have lived in tranquility for years but, without his knowledge, Auriane is a traitor to Rome. Plundering her husband's coffers for nearly a decade, Auriane has provided her people with enough wealth to arm themselves. Now, Auriane's betrayal has been discovered, and if her duplicity reaches the Roman authorities, her life - and the lives of her family - will be forfeit.
