Schliemann of Troy : treasure and deceit by David A Traill( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Standing proudly on a hill near Hisarlik, Turkey, in 1868, Heinrich Schliemann claimed that beneath his feet lay the ancient city of Troy, immortalized by Homer in the Iliad. To the consternation of contemporary scholars, Schliemann substantiated his claims and popularized the belief that the Homeric legends have some basis in fact. He unearthed "Priam's Treasure" at the site, bringing a glimmering but pivotal age into much sharper focus. By the time he excavated Mycenae in 1876 and delivered to the world the golden "Mask of Agamemnon," he had earned a huge reputation that went largely unchallenged for decades." "However, in Schliemann of Troy, classicist David Traill investigates the archaeologist's own legends, and argues convincingly that Schliemann regularly distorted facts in both his personal and professional lives. Basing his biography on a thorough reexamination of the vast collection of Schliemann papers in Athens and including many previously unpublished excerpts from his letters and diaries, Traill demonstrates that his subject was a remarkably unscrupulous and untruthful individual." "At once a gripping portrait of a duplicitous man and a reinterpretation of some of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time, Schliemann of Troy shakes the dust off of the Schliemann corpus and rewrites one of history's most exciting chapters."--Jacket

"Heinrich Schliemann (German: [li?man]; 6 January 1822? 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer of field archaeology. He was an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, now presumed to be the site of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid reflect actual historical events. Schliemann's excavation of nine levels of archaeological remains with dynamite has been criticized as destructive of significant historical artifacts, including the level that is believed to be the historical Troy."--Wikipedia

Carmina Burana( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Latin and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carmina Burana, literally 'Songs from Beuern, ' is named after the village where the manuscript was found. The songbook consists of nearly 250 poems, on subjects ranging from sex and gambling to crusades and corruption. Compiled in the thirteenth century in South Tyrol, a German-speaking region of Italy, it is the largest surviving collection of secular Medieval Latin verse and provides insights into the vibrant social, spiritual, and intellectual life of the Middle Ages. The multilingual codex includes works by leading Latin poets such as the Archpoet, Walter of Châtillon, and the canonist Peter of Blois, as well as stanzas by German lyric poets. More than half these poems are preserved nowhere else. A selection from Carmina Burana first appeared in Victorian England in 1884 under the provocative title Wine, Women and Song. The title Carmina Burana remains fixed in the popular imagination today, conjured vividly by Carl Orff's famous cantata -- no Medieval Latin lyrics are better known throughout the world. This new presentation of the medieval classic in its entirety makes the anthology accessible in two volumes to Latin lovers and English readers alike."--

Carmina Burana( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Carmina Burana is by far the largest and best-known anthology of Medieval Latin verse. It contains songs not only about springtime, love, sex, gaming, gambling, and drinking, but also about crusading, the corruption of Rome, and the failings of the clergy; there are also plays about the birth of Christ and the events leading to his crucifixion and resurrection. The anthology provides fascinating insights into the values, attitudes, and social life of Europeans in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. More than half of the poems in the Carmina Burana manuscript are not preserved elsewhere, though at least one of them is to be found in some three hundred manuscripts. The collection includes some Middle High German, usually in the form of one or two stanzas added to the end of Latin poems. A few poems mix Latin and German, and three poems and one prose passage are entirely in German. The German content amounts to only about seven per cent of the total. In addition, one macaronic (mixed language) poem combines French and Latin. Finally, a few French words are scattered elsewhere.--
