Constructing the image of Muhammad in Europe( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Italian and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume represents a significant contribution to the complex history of the conceptualization and pictorialization of the Prophet Muhammad in the West. It gives a rapid and though deep overview of the history of the making of an image of the Prophet Muhammad in Europe and thus reflects the whole history of the making of the image of Islam in the Latin West, from the early medieval times till the 19th century. The book also provides the reader with ready access to the most recent scholarship concerning the image of Muhammad in Europe, in the form of comprehensive footnotes provided throughout the text and an extensive bibliography
Studien zu Paulinus Venetus, De mapa mundi by Michelina Di Cesare( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De mapa mundi, ein Werk, das im frühen 14. Jahrhundert von dem exzentrischen Franziskaner und späteren Bischof von Pozzuoli Paulinus Venetus (ca. 1270-1344) zusammengestellt wurde, ist aus vielerlei Hinsicht von wissenschaflichem Interesse: Zum einen ist es eine der letzten Zusammenfassungen der geografischen Kenntnisse des Mittelalters, die den textlichen und kartografischen zeitgenössischen Wissensstand vor der Wiederentdeckung des Ptolemäus und der Entdeckung des amerikanischen Kontinents dokumentiert. Darüber hinaus bietet das Werk zum anderen das erste Beispiel für eine geografische Beschreibung, welche die verbale und visuelle Darstellung des Raumes in sich zu vereinigen verstand, und markiert eine letzte Reflexionsstufe des Autors über den hermeneutischen Wert der Geografie für die erzählende Geschichtsschreibung. Der Band versucht, die Komplexität der Arbeit an dem Werk zu beleuchten und die vielen Probleme in den verschiedenen Phasen der Ausarbeitung der Texte und ihrer Textgestaltung im Zusamnmenhang mit dem vom Autor benutzten Text- und Kartenmaterial (Pietro Vesconte, Marino Sanudo, Philipp Brusserius, Johannes von St. Viktor, Pomponius Mela, Tacitus) aufzuzeigen - wobei gerade in der souveränen Verwendung der Vorlagen die besondere Autonomie sowie das literarische und ikonografische Verdienst des Paolinus Venetus liegen."--
The pseudo-historical image of the Prophet Muhammad in medieval Latin literature : a repertory by Michelina Di Cesare( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring and understanding how medieval Christians perceived and constructed the figure of the Prophet Muhammad is of capital relevance in the complex history of Christian-Muslim relations. Medieval authors writing in Latin from the 8th to the 14th centuries elaborated three main images of the Prophet: the pseudo-historical, the legendary, and the eschatological one. This volume focuses on the first image and consists of texts that aim to reveal the (Christian) truth about Islam. They have been taken from critical editions, where available, otherwise they have been critically transcribed from manuscripts and early printed books. They are organized chronologically in 55 entries: each of them provides information on the author and the work, date and place of composition, an introduction to the passage(s) reported, and an updated bibliography listing editions, translations and studies. The volume is also supplied with an introductory essay and an index of notable terms
