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

These two works on life's fleeting pleasures are by Buddhist monks from medieval Japan, but each shows a different world-view. In the short memoir Hojoki, Chomei recounts his decision to withdraw from worldly affairs and live as a hermit in a tiny hut in the mountains, contemplating the impermanence of human existence. Kenko, however, displays a fascination with more earthy matters in his collection of anecdotes, advice and observations. From ribald stories of drunken monks to aching nostalgia for the fading traditions of the Japanese court, Essays in Idleness is a constantly surprising work that ranges across the spectrum of human experience. Meredith McKinney's excellent new translation also includes notes and an introduction exploring the spiritual and historical background of the works. Chomei was born into a family of Shinto priests in around 1155, at at time when the stable world of the court was rapidly breaking up. He became an important though minor poet of his day, and at the age of fifty, withdrew from the world to become a tonsured monk. He died in around 1216. Kenko was born around 1283 in Kyoto.He probably became a monk in his late twenties, and was also noted as a calligrapher. Today he is remembered for his wise and witty aphorisms, 'Essays in Idleness'. Meredith McKinney, who has also translated Sei Shonagon's The Pillow Book for Penguin Classics, is a translator of both contemporary and classical Japanese literature. She lived in Japan for twenty years and is currently a visitng fellow at the Australian National University in Canberra. "[Essays in Idleness is] a most delightful book, and one that has served as a model of Japanese style and taste since the 17th century. These cameo-like vignettes reflect the importance of the little, fleeting futile things, and each essay is Kenko himself".
"Silent Tears "reveals the challenges, abuse, and control the author experienced during her marriage to a former pastor and her motivation to no longer be a victim but to become the victor. This book will be an inspiration to anyone who has been victimized in their life.
