    The Mystery of the Rosary -...

    Ever since its appearance in Europe five centuries ago, the rosary has been a widespread, highly visible devotion among Roman Catholics. Its popularity has persisted despite centuries of often seismic social upheaval, cultural change, and institutional reform. In form, the rosary consists of a ritually repeated sequence of prayers accompanied by meditations on episodes in the lives of Christ and Mary. As a devotional object of round beads strung on cord or wire, the rosary has changed very little since its introduction centuries ago. Today, the rosary can be found on virtually every continent, and in the hands of hard-line traditionalists as well as progressive Catholics. It is beloved by popes, professors, protesters, commuters on their way to work, children learning their “first prayers,” and homeless persons seeking shelter and safety.Why has this particular devotional object been so ubiquitous and resilient, especially in the face of Catholicism’s reinvention in the Early Modern, or “Counter-Reformation,” Era? Nathan D. Mitchell argues in lyric prose that to understand the rosary’s adaptability, it is essential to consider the changes Catholicism itself began to experience in the aftermath of the Reformation.Unlike many other scholars of this period, Mitchell argues that after the Reformation Catholicism actually became more innovative and diversified rather than retrenched and monolithic. This innovation was especially evident in the sometimes “subversive”; visual representations of sacred subjects, such as in the paintings of Caravaggio, and in new ways of perceiving the relation between Catholic devotion and the liturgy’s ritual symbols. The rosary was thus involved not only in how Catholics gave flesh to their faith, but in new ways of constructing their personal and collective identity. Ultimately, Mitchell employs the history of the rosary, and the concomitant devotion to the Virgin Mary with which it is associated, as a lens through which to better understand early modern Catholic history.

    For over two-hundred years, capitalist systems have overtaken the global economy, spreading near-universal growth and opening the floodgates for limitless human potential.Yet something is going terribly wrong in the world economy.Creativity and faith in the future have been traded for a slippery slope of cautionary paranoia, popular despair, and political overreach by leaders who promise to hold back the tides, control the weather, and print prosperity with little clue as to what is actually going on.This divergence did not begin with the Obama administration, the Trump presidency, the Gates Foundation, or George Soros, says leading futurist George Gilder. The cognitive dissonance and its harvest of confusion and despair reflects a deep misunderstanding at the heart of capitalism itself.In Life After Capitalism, national bestselling author George Gilder explains how economics is not an incentive system but an information system. Redefining capitalism for the modern age, he reveals how free enterprise is a mind driven system, material resources are essentially as infinite as atoms, and what governs economic growth is human creativity—not merely a Marxist class struggle for power.

    Der Energie-Erfolgstherapeut der ÖSV-Sportler!
    Dieses Buch richtet sich an alle, die bereit sind, ihre Gesundheit eigenverantwortlich in die Hand zu nehmen und Neues zuzulassen. 
    Konkret, mit Kompetenz und vielen praktischen Beispielen aus seiner langjährigen Erfahrung als Energetiker, Querdenker, Visionär und Energietherapeut von Österreichs besten Sportlern wie Felix Gottwald, Michael Walchhofer, Hermann Maier, Rainer Schönfelder, Michael Gruber, Andreas Schifferer, Michi Dorfmeister, Gitti Obermoser und vielen anderen bringt Martin Weber in diesem Buch die Leserinnen und Leser einen Schritt näher zum Verstehen der wahren Mechanismen, die in jedem Menschen wirken. 
    
    Martin Weber kann im Verlaufe seiner Tätigkeit bereits auf spektakuläre Heilerfolge zurückblicken, die zu einem großen Teil dokumentiert sind und auch in den Medien für große Resonanz gesorgt haben. Die schnelle Heilung von Knochenbrüchen, Sehnenrissen und anderen Verletzungen macht ihn nicht nur bei Spitzensportlern zu einem gefragten Therapeuten. Nun gibt Martin Weber sein Wissen erstmals in Buchform an Menschen weiter, die an wirklicher Heilung - nicht Symptombekämpfung - interessiert sind. Er zeigt auf, dass Medikamente niemals zu wirklicher Heilung führen und dass vor allem nach Verletzungen oder Operationen der Körper wie ein sensibles Musikinstrument neu gestimmt werden muss.

    Septimius Severus & the Roman Army

    A detailed account of Severus’ reign with particular emphasis on his military campaigns against the Parthians and the Garamantes in North Africa. The assassination of Emperor Commodus in 192 sparked a civil war. Septimius Severus emerged as the eventual victor and his dynasty (the Severans) ruled until 235. He fought numerous campaigns, against both internal rivals and external enemies, extending the Empire to the east (adding Mesopotamia), the south (in Africa) and the north (beyond Hadrian’s Wall). The military aspects of his reign, including his reforms of the army, are the main focus of this new study. After discussing his early career and governorship of Pannonia, Michael Sage narrates his war with Pescennius Niger, the siege of Byzantium, and the campaign in northern Mesopotamia that added it as a province. The much more difficult campaign against Clodius Albinus in Gaul is also studied in detail, as is that in North Africa. The narrative concludes with an account of the last campaign in Britain and Severus’ death. The final chapters analyze Septimius’ reforms of the army and assess their impact on events of the next seventy years until the accession of Diocletian. His greatest weakness was his love for his family. Like Marcus Aurelius he loved his children too much. They failed to maintain what he had bequeathed them.“Sage performs a masterful job putting Severus into a broad strategic overview of the times.” —The Historical Miniatures Gaming Society“Highly recommended to fans of the Roman Empire, and of the Roman Military, old and new alike. It is easily accessible and well written, and it features research of the highest quality.” —Ancient Warfare
