Isotopes in Vitreous Materials

Julian Henderson, Greg Hodgins, Patrick Degryse (eds)

For all archaeological artefactual evidence, the study of the provenance, production technology and trade of raw materials must be based on archaeometry. Whereas the study of the provenance and trade of stone and ceramics is already well advanced, this is not necessarily the case for ancient glass. The nature of the raw materials used and the geographical location of their transformation into artefacts often remain unclear. Currently, these questions are addressed by the use of radiogenic isotope analysis. With the specific information the technique provides, archaeologists can further their understanding of the of ancient glass production, based not only on typo-morphological features but also on exact scientific methods. The book captures the state of the art in this rapidly advancing field. It includes methodological papers on isotope analysis, innovative applications of several isotope systems to current questions in glass and glaze research, and advances in the knowledge of the economy of vitreous materials.

Jean-Philippe Rameau, 1683-1764. Een kennismaking

Ignace Bossuyt

Met 'Jean-Philippe Rameau, 1683-1764. Een kennismaking' schreef Ignace Bossuyt de eerste monografie in het Nederlands over Rameau als componist. De auteur situeert Rameaus oeuvre binnen de context van zijn tijd en bespreekt op een toegankelijke manier representatieve werken uit alle muziekgenres waarin hij actief was. Met deze kennismaking plaatst Bossuyt het fascinerende, maar nog te weinig bekende oeuvre van deze Franse barokcomponist in de kijker en gidst hij de luisteraar vakkundig door het muzikale landschap van het laatbarokke Frankrijk.

La Casa de Borgoña: la Casa del rey de España (print)

José Eloy Hortal Muñoz; Félix Labrador Arroyo (eds)

La Corte y las Casas Reales resultaron fundamentales en la organización política de las Monarquías modernas. Sin duda, Borgoña resultó de especial relevancia en la gestación de dicho proceso, pues su Casa Ducal adquirió una perfección reconocida por el resto de monarquías del momento. Dicho servicio a la borgoñona llegó a la Monarquía Hispana a través de Felipe I, consiguiendo imponerse a las Casas menos desarrolladas de Aragón y Castilla y convirtiéndose en la Casa de una Monarquía Universal. El presente libro pretende situar a la Casa de Borgoña de los Habsburgo hispanos en el papel nuclear que tuvo en la gestación de la Monarquía Hispánica. Al mismo tiempo, nos permite ser conscientes de que el estudio de la Historia Moderna no se ha agotado, ante la necesidad de explicar la historia de las Monarquías modernas europeas a través del análisis de la Corte y las Casas Reales. Courts and royal households played a crucial role in the development of the political organization of early modern monarchies. The Duchy of Burgundy was the first to establish a highly sophisticated household that approximated perfection at the organizational level, and for this reason was recognised by contemporary monarchies. Philip I introduced this so called ‘Burgundian household’ at the court of Castile. Soon it managed to reinforce its preeminence over other less developed households of the Spanish monarchy, such as those of Aragon and Castile, and it became the sole household of the Universal Monarchy.

Les dialogues platoniciens chez Plutarque

Stratégies et méthodes exégétiques

Xavier Brouillette, Angelo Giavatto (eds)

The issue of Plutarch's Platonism is a crucial topic for both specialists in Plutarch and for those interested in Plato.While previous publications on this issue focus on the faithfulness of Plutarch to Platonic philosophy and how Platonic theses are presented in the Middle Platonism, this volume attempts, through a multifaceted approach, to focus on how and why Plutarch uses the words of Plato in the Moralia.

Les peintures sur vases de Nagada I - Nagada II

Nouvelle approche sémiologique de l'iconographie prédynastique

Gwenola Graff

Ce travail propose une nouvelle approche de l'iconographie prédynastique égyptienne. Il s'agit d'étudier les vases à décorations complexes de la culture de Nagada. Le travail présenté ici regroupe pour la première fois le plus vaste ensemble possible de ces objets. L'ensemble fournit près de 650 documents, dont un certain nombre d'inédits. Le décor de ces vases a été analysé selon les principes de la sémiologie. Cette étude s'inscrit dans un contexte historique d'une période préparatoire à l'écriture et à la civilisation pharaonique sur lequel elle permet de donner un éclairage original. Le travail se présente sous la forme de deux volumes : le premier contient l'étude et les planches qui l'accompagnent. Le second est divisé en deux parties : la première est un inventaire des signes. La seconde partie du deuxième volume est consacrée au corpus des objets, comportant une illustration de bonne qualité et les renseignements muséographiques et bibliographiques les concernant. This work proposes a new approach to Egyptian Predynastic iconography, based essentially on a study of vases with complex painted decorations from the prehistoric Naqada culture. It describes and illustrates for the first time 650 of these objects-the widest collection yet to be studied-along with some unpublished material. The author fully explains the rules of composition and the implementation of the decoration, thus elucidating the image function as well as the origin of some iconographic themes of the Pharaonic period. The book's original and instructive perspective defines the historic context, revealing a period getting ready for the emergence of writing and Pharaonic civilization.

Opstellen over taal, taalverandering en standaardtaal

J.M. van der Horst

Joop van der Horst is een begrip. En dat al heel lang. Zijn stukken zijn altijd verrassend, eigenzinnig, to the point en met veel humor. Ze zijn bovendien zo verbluffend eenvoudig geschreven en zo aansprekend dat je vergeet dat het om belangrijke en netelige onderwerpen gaat. Taal is iets van iedereen. Maar de meningen over taal staan vaak tegenover elkaar. Vooral als het gaat om taalverandering, om normen en waarden, om de standaardtaal, om onderwijs en literatuur. Al die onderwerpen komen aan de orde in deze bundeling van eerder verschenen artikelen. Sommige, zoals ‘De Croma-verandering’ of ‘Het nieuwe krijgen’ zijn klassiekers. Andere, zoals ‘De ezels in de film’ of ‘Mortier’ zijn pareltjes die verschenen in een obscuur studentenblaadje of in een krant van acht jaar geleden en zijn daardoor nagenoeg onvindbaar geworden. In 'Met (het) oog op morgen' komen ze allemaal weer boven water. In deze stukken is niets van schoolmeesterij. Wie wil weten ‘hoe het moet’, kan beter iets anders lezen. Joop van der Horst schrijft voor zelfdenkende lezers: die worden aan het denken gezet, uitgenodigd tot verwondering of geprikkeld tot tegenspraak. Maar nooit laten deze stukken de lezer onberoerd.

Miroir et Savoir

Daniël De Smet, Meryem Sebti, Godefroid De Callatäy (eds)

Grâce à sa grande richesse, la métaphore platonicienne du miroir a été adoptée, amplifiée et élaborée dans l’Antiquité par une multitude d’auteurs, certes tous d’inspiration platonicienne, mais appartenant à la fois au paganisme et au christianisme. Lorsqu’on étudie cette métaphore dans le corpus philosophique, mystique et poétique en terre d’Islam, on constate qu’il ne s’agit pas d’une récurrence fortuite, d’un lieu commun, d’un archétype de la pensée humaine. Il s’agit au contraire de l’adoption d’un thème précis, toujours lié à un contexte platonicien malgré la pluralité des courants dans lesquels il apparaît. Les contributeurs au livre Miroir et Savoir se sont attachés à étudier les modalités selon lesquelles le thème platonicien du miroir est passé du paganisme et du christianisme à la culture arabo-musulmane, de la langue grecque et syriaque à l’arabe et au persan. Ils ont tenté de dévoiler les mécanismes de ces passages et d’en déterminer l’enjeu conceptuel. Cet ouvrage espère ainsi apporter une contribution au dossier de l’histoire de la réception du corpus philosophique grec dans le monde arabo-musulman.

Three Methodological Reflections

William E. Caplin, James Hepokoski, James Webster. Edited by Pieter Bergé

- The tone of the debates among Caplin, Hepokoski, and Webster (in the form of comments on each author's essay and then responses to the comments), though tactful, is obliquely blunt and tendentious; like the best of tennis pros, each author strives to serve an ace and defends the net against a passing shot (with Caplin, the ace is for formal function; with Hepokoski for Sonata Theory and dialogic form; with Webster for multivalent analysis). But we can trust that this provocative exchange will thoroughly invigorate discussions about classical form and encourage diverse approaches to its analysis. - Janet Schmalfeldt, In the Process of Becoming. Analytical and Philosophical Perspectives on Form in Early Nineteenth-Century Music (Oxford Studies in Music Theory), 2011, p. 15 In Musical Form, Forms & Formenlehre: Three Methodological Reflections, three eminent music theorists consider the fundamentals of musical form. They discuss how to analyze form in music and question the relevance of analytical theories and methods in general. They illustrate their basic concepts and concerns by offering some concrete analyses of works by Mozart (Idomeneo Overture, Jupiter Symphony) and Beethoven (First Symphony, Pastoral Symphony, Egmont Overture, and Die Ruinen von Athen Overture). The volume is divided into three parts, focusing on Caplin’s “theory of formal functions,” Hepokoski’s concept of “dialogic form,” and Webster’s method of “multivalent analysis” respectively. Each part begins with an essay by one of the three authors. Subsequently, the two opposing authors comment on issues and analyses they consider to be problematic or underdeveloped, in a style that ranges from the gently critical to the overtly polemical. Finally, the author of the initial essay is given the opportunity to respond to the comments and to refine further his own fundamental ideas on musical form.
