Hidden Women

Taal: engels

Auteur: Jacqueline Widmar Stewart

As you enter the world of the Celts, think of the role of women and how that role changed under the influence of Rome and religion. The exquisite artistry associated with pre-Christian women adds an exciting dimension. For hundreds of years, this artistry - as well as women themselves – has been roundly condemned by religious authorities. Please proceed with an open mind. New evidence of Celts’ stunning technical and communication skills must override long-held stereotypes of barbaric hordes. Now it is known that primordial family bonds reach to present day. Current populations need ancient Celtic stewardship of the land and wise adherence to natural laws, now more than ever. While acknowledging that age-old notions are not easily swayed, this book challenges society’s ability to rationalize the subjugation of women. Can subjugation of over half the population ever be justified? Will knowledge of forbearers’ constant struggle against subjugation trouble today’s descendants? Does it matter that women continue to be degraded? Discrediting women weakens the core of the family and keeps people subservient; this has been the story of Europe and Britain since the advent of the Current Era. Assault on the family has occurred so pervasively that it seems normal. The guise of religion works so well that even the lethal feels familiar. The reader is encouraged to independently verify these assertions. Start with the theory that Europe and Britain were the land of Celts and that their progeny probably still live here. Seek the Celtic layer in all of Europe. Find the connections between Celts and their branches: Burgundians, Franks, Galls, Basques, Veneti, Parisii. The Celtic world is there, although it may be hidden at first glance. A trip to Belgium will find Burgundians if that is the goal; if not the Dukes of Burgundy will remain hidden in references to “occupiers.” Franks abound in Germany where many have remained since they helped Burgundian cousins defeat the Romans and free their fellow Galls. Look for words that contain “Frank” – like “Frankfurt” and “Frankenberg.” Visit Trier and Worms to see what has happened to these two cities that were once so crucial to Rome’s downfall. Think of Slovenia as a Frankish homeland. May Europe’s children reclaim the splendors and equilibrium prized by their ancestors

Pijn

Auteur: A. Kluveld

Een culturele geschiedenis van pijn

Lichamelijk lijden is een van de meest ingrijpende menselijke ervaringen. Het roept op tot reflectie en vragen naar de zin van het bestaan. Pijn is net als de liefde een bron van angst en leed, wanhoop en eenzaamheid, verlangen en fascinatie, kunst en literatuur. Iedereen weet wat pijn is, maar dat maakt het fenomeen niet minder raadselachtig.
Vandaag ervaren mensen pijn als een belemmering van hun persoonlijke ontwikkeling en zoektocht naar geluk. Tegelijkertijd is juist de gedeelde angst voor en afschuw van pijn voor sommige mensen reden haar te omarmen. Terwijl de meesten van ons bij het geringste pijntje naar pillen grijpen, reiken performancekunstenaars naar de uiterste grenzen van pijnbeleving.
In Pijn. De terugkeer naar het paradijs en de wens er weer uit te ontsnappen gaat Amanda Kluveld in op de geschiedenis van de aantrekkingskracht, angst voor en afschuw van lichamelijk lijden. Een uniek boek over een belangrijk onderwerp.

Woman in Science

Taal: engels

Auteur: H J Mozans

First published in 1913, H.J.Mozans's book is a well-documented account of women's achievements in the various branches of science. It begins with ancient Greece and continues into Roman times, the medieval convents, Renaissance society, and the university laboratories of the Victorian era. Mozans traces the intellectual enfranchisement of women and their accomplishments as scientists and inventors in physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, the natural sciences, archaeology, medicine and surgery, and other fields. Only occasionally does he lapse into statements that show the restrictions of his own culture - his view, for instance, that one of the most desirable goals for society was an intellectually liberated woman who would then be able to sympathize with the noblest aims of her husband. Overall, the book is surprisingly contemporary in outlook.
