Christ in Art by Ernest Renan ( )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the dawn of Christianity, artists have been fascinated and stirred by the figure of Christ. His likeness appears in frescoes on the walls of catacombs that date from Roman times; he is featured in the stained glass windows of Gothic churches; and he can be found in various forms in today's pop culture. The Biblical Saviour is not a static, immaterial deity: Christ's mortal birth, unusual life and dramatic death make him an accessible subject for religious and secular artists alike. Whether they show the spirituality of God Incarnate or the earthly characteristics of a flesh-and-blood man

Averroès et la̓verroïsme; essai historique by Ernest Renan ( Book )
115 editions published between 1832 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'ouvrage d'Ernest Renan a fait date au XIXe siècle. Son objet est un philosophe arabe d'Andalousie, l'exposé de ses doctrines, l'histoire de sa longue et surprenante postérité. C'est donc un livre d'histoire où l'on apprend tout ou presque sur un homme né en 1126, Ibn Rushd, en latin Averroès, qui vécut sous les règnes des deux grands souverains de l'empire africano-berbère des Almohades, où étaient politiquement fondus les restes de l'Espagne musulmane. Il a, entre 1168 et 1198, date de sa mort en exil, à Marrakech, produit l'œuvre philosophique la plus importante du Moyen Age, commentant la quasi-totalité de l'œuvre d'Aristote à une époque où les chrétiens d'Occident commençaient à peine à se familiariser avec elle. Traduite en latin, son œuvre a régné sur les universités européennes jusqu'à la fin du XVIe siècle, faisant d'Ibn Rushd la pièce centrale du dispositif intellectuel qui a permis à la pensée européenne de construire son identité philosophique
Saint Paul by Ernest Renan ( Book )

Le Christ dans l'art by Ernest Renan ( )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La figure du Christ a, depuis toujours, inspiré les artistes. Déjà, dans les catacombes de l'Antiquité romaine, son portrait apparaissait sur les fresques murales. Plus tard, la vie du Christ se découpe dans les vitraux des églises gothiques ou se dessine sur les toiles des artistes de la Renaissance. Cependant, la figuration du Seigneur ne répond pas à une codification particulière et peut prendre, selon les artistes, des traits divers et variés. Qu'elles soulignent la spiritualité d'un dieu incarné ou les caractéristiques terrestres d'un homme de chair et de sang, les représentations nombreus

Christus in der Kunst by Ernest Renan ( )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seit der Geburt des Christentums sind Künstler fasziniert von Christus. Sein Abbild erscheint auf Fresken in Katakomben aus der Römerzeit, auf Buntglasscheiben in gotischen Kirchen sowie in verschiedenen Darstellungen in der heutigen Pop- Kultur. Der biblische Erlöser ist keine statische, körperlose Gottheit: Christi Geburt, sein ungewöhnliches Leben und sein dramatischer Tod machen ihn zu einem interessanten Motiv für religiöse und säkulare Künstler. Ob sie die Geistlichkeit des Leibhaftigen oder die menschlichen Charakteristika eines Mannes aus Fleisch und Blut zeigen, künstlerische Dars

Das Leben Jesu by Ernest Renan ( Book )
134 editions published between 1863 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Buch ist DER Klassiker der Jesus-Biographien, lange Zeit vergriffen, oder nur teuer antiquarisch erhältlich. In sehr moderner Sichtweise beschreibt Ernest Renan das Leben, die Gestalt und den Weg Jesu aus den Verhältnissen seiner Zeit heraus. Seine Sichtweise ist eine deskriptive, an Hand der vorliegenden Fakten versucht er zu ergründen, wie Jesus tatsächlich mit seinen Zeitgenossen interagierte und worauf seine enorme Wirkung beruhte. Die "göttliche Herkunft" Jesu setzt er nicht voraus, weil dies seine Überlegungen von vornherein verzerren würde - aber er schliesst sie auch nicht aus. Renans Werk war somit das erste, dass sich in wissenschaftlicher, Vorurteils-befreiter Weise Jesus näherte. Zunächst wurde Renan für das Buch scharf kritisiert und sogar als Professor entlassen, doch schon nach kurzer Zeit zeigte sich die Macht des klaren Gedankens: Nach sechs Monaten waren 60.000 Exemplare verkauft. Der universelle Denker Ernest Renan beschäftigte sich Zeit seines Lebens (1823 - 1892) mit Religion und Glaubensfragen, doch er war auch Historiker, Archäologe, Orientalist und Mitglied der Académie française
