Das bekannteste Herrschergeschlecht des Hochmittelalters 130 Jahre lang herrschten die Könige und Kaiser der Staufer – von 1138 bis 1268. Ein Mythos sind sie bis heute, allen voran die charismatischen Kaisergestalten Friedrich I. Barbarossa und Friedrich II., dessen Reich sich von der Ostsee bis Sizilien erstreckte. Die Zeit der Staufer, das Hochmittelalter, war zugleich die Blütezeit der Ritter und Burgen, Handel und Städtebau boomten. Überragende Persönlichkeiten wie Hildegard von Bingen und Franz von Assisi nahmen Einfluss auf Glauben und Politik, Dichter schrieben geniale Werke wie den »Parzival«. Häufig jedoch war der Alltag geprägt von harten Konflikten: Papst und Kaiser, König und Fürsten rangen um die Macht im Reich. SPIEGEL- Autoren und renommierte Mediävisten geben Einblick in diese bewegte Epoche. Sie porträtieren die staufischen Herrscher, zeigen, wie deren Untertanen lebten, und legen dar, warum die aus dem Schwäbischen stammende Staufer-Dynastie wie kein anderes deutsches Herrschergeschlecht zur Legende wurde. • Ein umfassender Einblick in die Epoche des Hochmittelalters • Kompakte Informationen: Herrscherporträts, Übersichtsdarstellungen, Essays – dazu zahlreiche Grafiken und Abbildungen

You are in a committed relationship, married or involved exclusively with one another. You thought everything was glorious—or, at least as glorious as it gets. All relationships have some rough spots. But now it seems that you are always fighting. Or he just doesn't act like himself anymore. He doesn't like his job. He wants a sportier car. He says you and he have grown apart. He wants something but he doesn't know what. All relationships have their difficult times, but when a previously sensible man morphs into an angry stranger, the difficulties compound. Does your man say he is no longer "in love" with you but his reasons, if any, are vague at best? Is he trying to reinvent himself as a younger, hipper guy? Is he looking for an elusive "something" that he can't define? Have you twisted yourself inside out in an attempt to please him, but with no success? Maybe it's time you stop trying to change yourself and focus on the real cause of his conduct. If this is new behavior for him and he is between the ages of 35 and 50, your man is blazing a trail through midlife—and he is probably having a crisis. But how do you know for sure? And if it is a crisis, what can you do about it? A midlife crisis can devour a relationship. It may be devouring yours.

Course of Mirrors an odyssey by Ashen Venema “I was bridge, river, riverbed and water falling from the cliff, the aria of water. I was air, breeze and water dust rising. I was mirror to mirrors yet looked from beyond mirrors. Behind my eyes a truth flashed.” Set in a mythical time on earth, Course of Mirrors follows the story of a rebellious young woman, Ana, in search of her destiny. Ana spends years of her life in isolation and caught in a rift between the disparate realms of her parents. Her spirit is affirmed by Cara, her soul-sister living in the twentieth century, who beckons her across time. They have a task together, for which Ana must travel west. The night before her covert departure, Ana is given a confidential letter that burdens her adventure with secrecy. Ana travels between her parents’ realms in disguise, crossing dangerous bridges and battling dark fears. She evades the ominous plans of a maverick preacher and shortly after meets her first love, Luke. He and the preacher are twins, though both are ignorant of this. As the two brothers fight to win Ana and betrayals begin to unravel, Ana attempts to bridge the gap between love and power. Course of Mirrors is a gripping and enchanting story of a young woman’s odyssey. Its overriding theme of a quest for belonging has a universal recognisability and appeal, and will be continued in Ashen’s sequel, Shapers, in which Ana’s journey continues into future worlds. Inspired by 1001 Nights, and writers like Ursula Le Guin, Ashen Venema’s debut novel will appeal to fans of fantasy novels and those who enjoy coming-of-age mysteries.
