With its outstanding treasures of precious goldsmith work and textile art, the Domkammer in Munster possesses one of the most important collections in Europe. Like a golden showcase wall, the high altar of the cathedral presented sculptures and reliquaries of the very greatest value that astonish the beholder even today. The treasures cover a range of almost a thousand years, up to the twentieth century. The focus is, however, on reliquaries from the Middle Ages, a treasure of sculptures and vessels unequalled anywhere in the world. Speaking reliquaries, precious crucifixes and impressive textiles illuminate to this day the uniqueness of religious life in the last thousand years.

Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven Men, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of history's greatest women, all of whom changed the course of history by following God's call upon their lives - as women. Each of these world-changing figures - Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks - is an exemplary model of true womanhood. The teenaged Joan of Arc followed God's call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr's death. Susanna Wesley had 19 children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parks' deep sense of justice and unshakeable dignity and faith helped launch the 20th-century's greatest social movement. Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the other extraordinary women in this book achieved their greatness, inspiring listeners to live lives shaped by the truth of the Gospel. 1.

Dante's immortal vision of hell shines "as it never did before in English verse" (Edward Mendelson) in Clive James' new translation of Inferno. The most captivating part of perhaps the greatest epic poem ever written, Dante's Inferno still holds the power to thrill and inspire. The medieval equivalent of a thriller, Inferno follows Dante and his faithful guide, Virgil, as they traverse the complex geography of hell, confronting its many threats, macabre punishments, and historical figures before reaching the deep chamber where Satan himself resides. Now, in this new translation, Clive James communicates not just the transcendent poetry of Dante's language but also the excitement and terror of his journey through the underworld. Instead of Dante's original terza rima, a form that in English tends to show the strain of composition, James employs fluently linked quatrains, thereby conveying the seamless flow of Dante's poetry and the headlong momentum of the action. As James writes in his introduction, Dante's great poem "can still astonish us, whether we believe in the supernatural or not. At the very least it will make us believe in poetry." 1.
