Mehr zum Buch Axel Michaels' umfassende Einführung in den Hinduismus gilt inzwischen als Standardwerk.

Es erläutert die verschiedenen Riten und Feste, die Bedeutung der unzähligen Götter, das Kastensystem und nicht zuletzt die hinduistischen Vorstellungen von Raum und Zeit, Tod, Wiedergeburt und Erlösung.

Rückkehr nach Reims

Als sein Vater stirbt, reist Didier Eribon zum ersten Mal nach Jahrzehnten in seine Heimatstadt. Gemeinsam mit seiner Mutter sieht er sich Fotos an – das ist die Ausgangskonstellation dieses Buchs, das autobiografisches Schreiben mit soziologischer Reflexion verknüpft. Eribon realisiert, wie sehr er unter der Homophobie seines Herkunftsmilieus litt und dass es der Habitus einer armen Arbeiterfamilie war, der es ihm schwer machte, in der Pariser Gesellschaft Fuß zu fassen. Darüber hinaus liefert er eine Analyse des sozialen und intellektuellen Lebens seit den fünfziger Jahren und fragt, warum ein Teil der Arbeiterschaft zum Front National übergelaufen ist. Das Buch sorgt seit seinem Erscheinen international für Aufsehen. So widmete Édouard Louis dem Autor seinen Bestseller »Das Ende von Eddy«.

Book of Kells

Author: Bernard Meehan

Publisher: Thames & Hudson

ISBN: 9780500278437

Category: Book of Kells

The Book of Kells is a spectacular group of manuscripts created in Ireland and northern Britain between the 7th and 10th centuries, a period when Irish monasticism was in the vanguard of Christian culture. Its earliest history remains controversial, but it was in the keeping of the monastery of Kells, Co. Meath, for most of the Middle Ages - hence its name - and has been in the library of Trinity College, Dublin, since the mid-17th century.
