Nach Ende des Siebenjährigen Krieges wird Major Tellheim, vom Wirt aus seiner Stube in ein schlechteres Zimmer umquartiert, da er nicht mehr zahlen kann. In sein Zimmer zieht eine vermögende Frau mit Kammerjungfer ein, die sich seine Verlobte Minna von Barnhelm entpuppt. Minna sucht nach Tellheim. Tellheim verkauft seine Verlobungsring begleicht damit seine Wirtsschulden. Nun wohnen er und sein Diener Just in einem heruntergekommenen Haus. Tellheim verlor sein Geld verlor er, weil er dem Militär während des Krieges Geld vorschoss. Sein Wechsel jedoch wird nun vom König nicht eingelöst und so bleibt Tellheim auf seinen hohen Ausgaben sitzen. Da er zudem für sein eigentlich nobles Verhalten im Krieg kritisiert und verdächtigt wird, fühlt er sich zusätzlich in seiner Ehre gekränkt. Als er erfährt, dass Minna von Barnhelm in der Stadt ist, die seinen versetzten Ring gekauft und so von seinem Aufenthalt in Berlin erfahren hat, zieht er sich aus Scham vor ihr zurück. Auch seinem besten Freund, dem Wachtmeister Werner, erlaubt er nicht, ihm mit Geld auszuhelfen. Minna von Barnhelm und ihre Kammerjungfer Franziska, die Gefallen an Werner gefunden hat, wollen Tellheim durch eine List seinen Stolz heimzahlen. Minna verkündet ihrem Verlobten, dass sie seiner nicht würdig sei und ihn daher nie heiraten könne: "Sein Wechsel könne jederzeit eingelöst werden und seine Ehre wiederhergestellt werden, ihre Ehre jedoch sei dahin, da ihr Onkel sie wegen einer verweigerten Ehe mit einem für sie gewählten Mann verstoßen habe"

"'Once in the East there lived a man who owned a ring of unimaginable worth...'" "Jerusalem, 1192. An uneasy stalemate exists between the Muslim forces of Saladin and the western Crusaders. Caught in the middle, the Jews. All sides respect Nathan for his wisdom and his wealth. But in a war-zone no one is secure." "Banned by the Nazis, Lessing's 18th-century masterpiece is a passionate plea for religious tolerance."--BOOK JACKET

Die Erziehung des Menschengeschlechts by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing( )

156 editions published between 1780 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 2,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El autor relaciona el desarrollo del pensamiento religioso con tres diferentes estadios del género humano. El judaísmo habría sido la infancia y el cristianismo la juventud, pero la tercera fase de madurez aún espera en el futuro. Para Lessing, la verdadera edad de oro no está en el pasado sino en el provenir: le corresponde a la humanidad desde siempre y en todo tiempo. Le humanidad explicita su esencia y alcanza su destino en los lentos pasos del devenir histórico y Dios dirige el proceso que le aproxima a la manifestación de sus potencialidades

Hamburg dramaturgy by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing( Book )

465 editions published between 1767 and 2019 in 16 languages and held by 2,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While eighteenth-century playwright and critic Gotthold Ephraim Lessing made numerous contributions in his lifetime to the theater, the text that best documents his dynamic and shifting views on dramatic theory is also that which continues to resonate with later generations – the Hamburg Dramaturgy (Hamburgische Dramaturgie, 1767–69). This collection of 104 short essays represents one of the eighteenth century’s most important critical engagements with the theater and its potential to promote humanistic discourse. Lessing’s essays are an immensely erudite, deeply engaged, witty, ironic, and occasionally scathing investigation of European theatrical culture, bolstered by deep analysis of Aristotelian dramatic theory and utopian visions of theater as a vehicle for human connection. This is the first complete English translation of Lessing's text, with extensive annotations that place the work in its historical context. For the first time, English-language readers can trace primary source references and link Lessing’s observations on drama, theory, and performance not only to the plays he discusses, but also to dramatic criticism and acting theory. This volume also includes three introductory essays that situate Lessing’s work both within his historical time period and in terms of his influence on Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment theater and criticism

"Though starting from a deist standpoint, Lessing raised the questions that have dominated theology up to our own time ...
