Frauen die Geschichte machten: Von Hatschepsut bis Indira by Reinhard Barth

By Reinhard Barth

Hartnäckig hält sich das Klischee, dass es vor allem Männer waren, die als geschichtsmächtige 'dramatis personae' die Geschichte beinflussten. Nun waren allzu lange eben auch vor allem Männer als Geschichtsschreiber am Werk und haben ein entsprechend männerzentriertes Geschichtsbild herbei geschrieben. Das hat in letzter Zeit zunehmend Retuschen erfahren, und so ist es das Anliegen dieses Buches, eine Galerie der 'femmes fortes', der starken Frauen, zu eröffnen.
26 Frauen, allesamt spannende Figuren und Persönlichkeiten, die historische Spuren hinterlassen haben, werden darin in biographischen Porträts vorgestellt. Dabei geht es weniger um ein 'cherchez los angeles femme' im Sinn einer Schlüssellochperspektive, als vielmehr um die Würdigung politisch gestaltender Frauen vom Altertum bis in das 20. Jahrhundert, ohne freilich einen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit erheben zu können.

Inszenierung und Repräsentation der byzantinischen by Michael Grünbart

By Michael Grünbart

Im Zentrum dieser kulturgeschichtlichen Untersuchung steht die Frage, wie die aristokratische Schicht im mittelbyzantinischen Reich (10. - thirteen. Jahrhundert) gesellschaftlich sichtbar auftrat und welche Strategien sie zur Selbstdarstellung entwickelte.
Systematisch wertet Grünbart alle verfügbaren Zeugnisse aus, um die Wirkung von Kleidung, das kultivierte Auftreten, die Wichtigkeit der Familienzugehörigkeit, den entsprechend ausgestalteten Wohnraum und Stifter-/Patronagetätigkeiten zu untersuchen.

Die Studie betritt mit ihrer Fragestellung Neuland und trägt zum Verständnis der Dynamik der byzantinischen Gesellschaft bei.
