Christus in der Kunst by Ernest Renan( )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in German and held by 838 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 Darstellungen Christi sind die umstrittensten, bewegendsten oder inspirierendsten Beispiele religiöser Kunst. Dieses reich illustrierte Buch erforscht verschiedene christliche Darstellungen, von Cimabues Krippenszenen über die Kreuzigungsdarstellungen Fra Angelicos bis hin zu den provozierenden Porträts Dalís und Andre Serranos. Der Autor Joseph Lewis French führt den Leser durch die ikonischen Darstellungen Christi in der Kunst. Zart oder graphisch, klassisch oder bizarr verdeutlichen diese Messiasbilder die verschiedenen Rollen des Gottessohns im sozialen Bereich wie auch im persönlichen Leben der Künstler

What is a nation? : and other political writings by Ernest Renan( Book )

48 editions published between 1882 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Renan was one of the leading lights of the Parisian intellectual scene in the second half of the nineteenth century. A philologist, historian, and biblical scholar, he was a prominent voice of French liberalism and secularism. Today most familiar in the English-speaking world for his 1882 lecture “What Is a Nation?” and its definition of a nation as an “everyday plebiscite,” Renan was a major figure in the debates surrounding the Franco-Prussian War, the Paris Commune, and the birth of the Third Republic and had a profound influence on thinkers across the political spectrum who grappled with the problem of authority and social organization in the new world wrought by the forces of modernization. What Is a Nation? and Other Political Writings is the first English-language anthology of Renan’s political thought. Offering a broad selection of Renan’s writings from several periods of his public life, most previously untranslated, it restores Renan to his place as one of France’s major liberal thinkers and gives vital critical context to his views on nationalism. The anthology illuminates the characteristics that distinguished nineteenth-century French liberalism from its English and American counterparts as well as the more controversial parts of Renan’s legacy, including his analysis of colonial expansion, his views on Islam and Judaism, and the role of race in his thought. The volume contains a critical introduction to Renan’s life and work as well as detailed annotations that assist in recovering the wealth and complexity of his thought. --
