The Modern Scholar: Eternal Chalice: The Grail in Literature and Legend

Description:The goal of this course is to provide an overview of the many different ways writers of fiction and nonfiction have imagined, and reimagined, the object known as the Grail. We'll look at how the Grail was invented as a powerful literary symbol in the late 12th and early 13th centuries by a group of medieval romancers who celebrated the Grail as a symbol of perfection. At times, this perfection was social, and the Grail functioned as a symbol of the perfect knight or of the ideal chivalric society. Most often, however, the Grail's perfection was unmistakably religious, so that it was indeed the Holy Grail, a symbol of God's perfect love, grace, wisdom, and joy. After being ignored for centuries, the Grail was rediscovered in the 19th century by both poets and scholars, who radically reinvented what the Grail stood for. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, the Grail fascinates many who search for the perfect spiritual wisdom it promises.

The Modern Scholar: Christianity At the Crossroads: The Reformations of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

Description: Esteemed history professor Thomas F. Madden explores the reformations that swept across Christendom in the 16th and 17th centuries. The impact of these reforms affected government, popes, and kings as well as commoners, for at this time the Church was an omnipresent part of European identity-and the import of Church reforms on every level of life at this time simply cannot be underestimated. Involved in this fascinating era are such notable personages as King Henry VIII, Martin Luther, and John Calvin. Through every aspect of this remarkable process of reformation, Professor Madden captures the essence of the era-and imparts a true, studied understanding of just what this time period meant to the course of human events.

Апостол и евангелист Иоанн Богослов

Description: Аудиокнига посвящена любимому ученику Господа Иисуса Христа, апостолу любви, евангелисту Иоанну Богослову. Житие святого пересказано здесь языком современной повести, а всё, что добавлено к дошедшему до нас древнему повествованию, прямо "выводится" из него - из самих ситуаций, черт эпохи и характеров. Чтобы рассказ о святом был полнее, в книгу включены отрывки подлинных посланий апостола Иоанна Богослова. А рассказ о чудесах святого покажет, почему Иоанн Богослов является покровителем иконописания и как богато он явил своё заступление на нашей Русской земле.

Den döende dandyn

Description: En vinterkall söndagsmorgon hittas en mördad man upphängd till allmän beskådan i en port i Visby ringmur. Offret är den väl ansedde konsthandlaren Egon Wallin, som dagen före haft en succéartad vernissage där en litausik konstnär visat sina verk.Kommissarie Anders Knutas och hans kolleger undersöker fallet och finner att Egon Wallin stod i begrepp att lämna sitt gamla liv; sin hustru sedan tjugo år, galleriet och bostaden på Gotland. i största hemlighet har han förberett sitt uppbrott. Vart skulle han och varför? När en stöld av konstnären Nils Dardels berömda målning Den döende dandyn inträffar i Stockholm blottläggs tydliga samband med mordet på den gotländske konsthandlaren och mediaintresset blir enormt. TV-reportern Johan Berg går sina egna vägar för att söka fakta. Han är något avgörande på spåren utan att se konsekvenserna av sin våghalsiga framfart. Relationen med gotländskan Emma Winarve äventyras - men också deras lilla dotters liv. I de eleganta konstsalongerna rör sig en iskall mördare - oberäknelig och närmare än någon kan ana.

Love you Forever 

Добавил admin 28 января, 2011 06:58 English Language Комментариев: 0   

The mother sings to her sleeping baby: "I'll love you forever / I'll love you for always / As long as I'm living / My baby you'll be." She still sings the same song when her baby has turned into a fractious 2-year-old, a slovenly 9-year-old, and then a raucous teen. So far so ordinary--but this is one persistent lady.

When her son grows up and leaves home, she takes to driving across town with a ladder on the car roof, climbing through her grown son's window, and rocking the sleeping man in the same way. Then, inevitably, the day comes when she's too old and sick to hold him, and the roles are at last reversed.

Each stage is illustrated by one of Sheila McGraw's comic and yet poignant pastels.
