Gott und die Welt. Religiöse Vorstellungen des frühen und by Hans-Werner Goetz

By Hans-Werner Goetz

Die Vorstellungswelten bilden einen eminent wichtigen Bestandteil historischer Forschung, weil bei kaum einem anderen Gegenstand die Menschen selbst so deutlich in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses treten wie bei menschlichen Vorstellungen, mit denen die Menschen sich selbst und ihre Umwelt wahrnehmen und sie zu erklären und zu begreifen suchen. Das Denken der Menschen ist Grundlage ihres Handelns und bildet daher einen entscheidenden Faktor aller historischen Vorgänge. Im Zuge einer sich immer stärker abzeichnenden kulturwissenschaftlichen und anthropologischen Betrachtungsweise heutiger Geisteswissenschaften dürfte das Thema in Zukunft noch an Bedeutung gewinnen. Mit den religiösen Vorstellungswelten des Mittelalters aber erfassen wir den zentralen Aspekt dieser Epoche schlechthin. Ziel des Autors ist es, einen repräsentativen und zugleich informativen und anschaulichen Einblick in die geistig-religiöse Befindlichkeit der (schreibenden) mittelalterlichen Menschen aus geschichtswissenschaftlicher Perspektive zu bieten, als ein erstes Ergebnis, an das die künftige Forschung anknüpfen oder mit dem sie sich auseinandersetzen kann. Unter dem Titel „Gott und die Welt“ ist dabei auf die Bedeutung religiöser Vorstellungen im Mittelalter, vor allem aber auf deren zentralen Ausgangspunkt mittelalterlicher Religiosität verwiesen: den Schöpfer und seine Schöpfung. Im ersten, nun vorliegenden Teilband des Werkes behandelt der Autor das mittelalterliche Gottesbild, einen Aspekt mittelalterlicher Vorstellungswelten, der hier erstmals in dieser Ausführlichkeit aufgearbeitet wird. Erkenntnisprobleme, Diskussionen um Gottes Wirken als Schöpfer, Lenker und Richter kommen dabei ebenso ausführlich zur Sprache wie Diskurse um das göttliche Wesen, das Trinitätsproblem, Gottesbeweise und bildliche Gottesdarstellungen. Der in Kürze folgende zweite Teilband wird über die materielle und personelle Schöpfung, additionally über den Kosmos (Natur und Kosmos, Himmel, Paradies, Hölle und Erde) und die Geschöpfe (Engel, Teufel, Menschen) sowie das Heilsgeschehen, handeln. Den Abschluß des Werkes wird ein Band über einzelne konkrete Aspekte religiöser Vorstellungen, wie Buße und Sünde, Heilige und Wunder, Tod und Jenseits, bilden.

Les collègues du prince sous Auguste et Tibère: de la by Frédéric Hurlet

By Frédéric Hurlet

Los angeles restauration par Auguste de los angeles collégialité à los angeles tête de l'État ne constitue pas le moindre des paradoxes d un régime qui reposait par ailleurs sur le charisme du pnnceps. Il y avait là une expérience de gouvernement qui avait une originalité et qui mérite une étude d ensemble. los angeles permanence au début de l'Empire de l. a. suggestion de collega est un phénomène bien attesté qui justifie l'attention portée à l'analyse des pouvoirs exercés dans un cadre collégial; ce qu'il est d'usage de désigner par l. a. «co-régence » n'est donc pas une fiction juridique et s'apparente à une réalité du droit public. element de départ obligé, l'approche constitutionnelle inscrit cette nouvelle forme de partage des pouvoirs dans le cadre et le prolongement des associations républicaines : l. a. «co-régence» apparaît à ce titre comme une composante du principat qui contribue à renforcer le mythe de los angeles Res publica restituta. Mais il fallait aussi élargir los angeles standpoint, et découvrir ce qui se cachait derrière une telle façade légale. l. a. imaginative and prescient des Italiens et des provinciaux permet à cet égard de dévoiler ce qui restait encore de iure un arcane, dans l. a. mesure où le collègue du prince était perçu en dehors de Rome comme le membre de los angeles Domus Augusta et le garant de l. a. continuité familiale du pouvoir. On est ainsi moveé avec Auguste de l'ancienne collégialité concurrentielle à une nouvelle collégialité dynastique : transformation capitale qui définit mieux le rôle joué par les différents «co-régents» (Agrippa, Drusus l'Ancien, Tibère avant son avènement, Germanicus et Drusus le Jeune) et qui vient réalimenter le débat sur l'ambiguïté foncière du régime impérial.
