Revolution in Hungary : the 1956 Budapest uprising by Erich Lessing( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On October 23, 1956, what began as a mass rally in Budapest quickly evolved into the Hungarian Revolution. Within days, millions of Hungarians were supporting the revolt. It lasted until November 4th, when it was crushed by the Hungarian police and Soviet tanks and artillery. Thousands of Hungarian rebels and Soviet soldiers were killed and injured, and nearly a quarter of a million people fled the country." "Erich Lessing was the first photographer to arrive in Hungary, and he documented the short-lived uprising and its aftermath in a series of photographs, reproduced here in stunning duotone. These world-famous images bring to life once more the hope and euphoria of the first days of the revolt, so soon to be followed by its brutal suppression."--Jacket

Karl Friedrich Schinkel : an architecture for Prussia by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and German and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great German neoclassical architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841) is one of the pivotal figures in architectural history; his public buildings, palaces, luxurious interiors, and opera sets remain an important influence on architecture today. Schinkel produced almost all of his most famous works -- in effect, creating prototypes for nineteenth century public architecture -- during his 1815-41 tenure at the Prussian state architecural service. During this period, often referred to as the Schinkelzeit in his honor, the monarchy under King Friedrich Wilhelm III and enlightened state administrators came together to form a grand and powerful new Prussia. This first monograph in English gives a long-awaited appraisal of Schinkel as he forged a new syntax of architecture and a new definition of the architect's place in society"-- Front flap

Jesus and Temple : textual and archaeological explorations( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Testament provides abundant evidence that Jesus frequented the temple; according to Acts, so did his followers after his death. But the Gospels also depict Jesus in conflict with temple authorities, and questions about his attitude to the temple swirl around what the Gospels label false accusations from his opponents and around the dramatic but inconsistent accounts of Jesus "cleansing" the temple. Jesus' attitude toward the temple is at the center of current historical Jesus research, yet those discussions are often not current with the latest archaeological and related findings regarding the temple and its history, architecture, liturgy, and function. James H. Charlesworth here gathers essays from world-renowned archaeologists and biblical scholars to address the current state of knowledge regarding the temple and to consider anew vital questions about its significance for Jesus, for his followers, and for New Testament readers today
