Download Da Vinci S Last Commission books, Imagine you have an old painting, a Madonna and Child, that has been in your family for years. It is beautiful, serene and spellbinding. It hangs on your wall and for a long time you take it for granted. But curiosity to know more about it gradually grows until it becomes irresistible. You call in the experts. They get excited. What if that old family painting was thought to be by a pupil of Leonardo da Vinci – or even the great master himself? You start researching, communicating with academics and institutions all over the world. The results of your research are nothing short of astounding. What would you do if that painting pointed to one of the greatest heresies of our time? And what if it revealed an incredible story that the Roman Catholic Church has been desperate to keep secret at all costs for centuries? Da Vinci’s Last Commission by Fiona McLaren is one of the most astonishing detective stories in the history of art. It is also an account of the courage and tenacity of a woman who challenged the international art establishment, orthodox history and the Church in her quest for the truth.

Ein neben einer Rolle Seil kniender Mann, der das Licht seiner Lampe auf einen vor ihm abfallenden Schacht richtet. – An den Höhleneingängen vermählen sich für den Betrachter Tag und Nacht, Diesseits und Jenseits, Wirklichkeit und Traum. Die Neugier, welche Menschen seit jeher in die Löcher und Leerstellen in unserem Wissen absteigen lässt, zog gleichsam Forscher wie Gelehrte, Künstler, Abenteurer und Einheimische in ihren Bann. Am Schnittpunkt zahlreicher Diskurse sind Höhlen nicht an den Rändern, sondern als Kern einer umfassenden Beschäftigung mit dem Unterirdischen im Zentrum der menschlichen Kultur zu verorten. Das Buch zeichnet aus kultur- und wissenschaftshistorischer Perspektive in einem einzigartigen Bogen von der Antike bis ins 20. Jahrhundert die Wege früher Reisender in die Tiefe nach.

The Figure Of The Shaman In Contemporary British Poetry

by Shamsad Mortuza, The Figure Of The Shaman In Contemporary British Poetry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Figure Of The Shaman In Contemporary British Poetry books, This genealogical study focuses on the work of five contemporary British poets in order to locate them in a counter cultural tradition that is informed by strategic responses to ‘state terrorism.’ It identifies some historical moments of ruptures, such as the persecution of the Celtic druids by the Romans, the killing of the Welsh bards by Edward I, the appropriation of bardic materials by Romantic poets writing in a post-French Revolution era, and the beatnik response to a post-World War bipolar world in order to contextualise and discuss the poets of British Poetry Revival writing under Thatcherism. Drawing on Mircea Eliade’s notion of shamanism as ‘archaic techniques of ecstasy,’ these poets have transformed Eliade’s version of the shaman’s ‘elective trauma’ and enacted a critical rejection of totalitarian tools of the state and society. Categorised as the ‘Technicians of the Sacred’ and the ‘Technicians of the Body’ these shamanic poets include Iain Sinclair, Jeremy Prynne, Brian Catling, Barry MacSweeney, and Maggie O’Sullivan. Their poetic strategy is not a New Age fad; it rather investigates and inventories the ‘hidden’ energies of past and present to wrest spirituality away from the confines of religion and politics, while embodying it in textual praxis.

Le Dernier L Onard De Vinci

by Fiona McLaren, Le Dernier L Onard De Vinci Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Le Dernier L Onard De Vinci books, Imaginez un tableau ancien, représentant une vierge à l’enfant. D’une beauté sereine et envoûtante, il est dans votre famille depuis tant d’années qu’il semble n’avoir plus rien à vous apprendre. Pourtant le désir d’en percer les mystères devient de plus en plus pressant. Vous appelez des experts. Aussitôt, ils s’émeuvent : et si ce tableau, dont on a fait cadeau à votre père, était l’œuvre d’un élève de Léonard – voire du grand maître lui-même ? Vous vous mettez à chercher, à échanger avec des universitaires et des institutions du monde entier. Les résultats de votre enquête sont rien moins qu’ahurissants. Que faire si ce tableau témoignait de l’une de plus grandes hérésies de notre temps ? Et s’il révélait une incroyable aventure que l’Église romaine catholique avait tenu à garder secrète par tous les moyens depuis des siècles ? Le DernierLéonard de Vinci par Fiona McLaren est l’une des enquêtes les plus sensationnelles de l’histoire de l’art. C’est aussi le récit du courage et de la ténacité d’une femme qui dans sa recherche de la vérité a défié l’establisment de l’art, l’histoire officielle et l’Église.
