English summary: A collection of essays dealing with historians - in a wide sense - which up from the 16th century to the 1960s devoted themselves to Europe or aspects of its history and formation. The essays were written by distinguished historians from several European countries. German description: Gibt es eine spezifisch europaische Identitat? Wenn ja, wie ist diese Identitat entstanden, worin besteht sie und was macht sie aus? Anders als bisherige gegenwarts- oder zukunftsorientierte Versuche, Antworten auf die Fragen der europaischen Integration zu finden, nahert sich dieses Handbuch im Ruckblick. Es zeigt, in welchem Maa, mit welchen Konnotationen und mit welchen Zielsetzungen sich Historiker vergangener Jahrhunderte und Jahrzehnte mit dem Phanomen Europa auseinandergesetzt haben. Neben Historikern im engeren Sinne werden auch humanistisch gebildete Geographen und Literaten, Statistiker und Okonomen, Politiker und Philosophen, Juristen und Staatswissenschaftler vorgestellt und verortet.

Germanen Und Romanen Im Merowingerreich

This work focuses on one of the most striking archaeological phenomena of the Early Middle Ages in Europe, the so-called Reihengraberfelder (cemeteries with graves in rows). The author covers the development of their historical interpretation against the backdrop of an apparently fundamental contrast between the Germanic tribes and the Romans. However, his analysis demonstrates that these cemeteries cannot be seen as archaeological evidence of Germanic migration to the former boarder regions of the Roman Empire, but rather represent a cultural reaction to the break-up of Rome.

In his probing study of the role of death rites in the making of Islamic society, Leor Halevi imaginatively plays prescriptive texts against material culture and advances new ways of interpreting highly contested sources. His original research reveals that religious scholars of the early Islamic period produced codes of funerary law not only to define the handling of a Muslim corpse but also to transform everyday urban practices. Relying on oral traditions, these scholars established new social patterns in the cities of Arabia, Mesopotamia, and the eastern Mediterranean. They distinguished Islamic rites from Christian, Jewish, and Zoroastrian rites and changed the way men and women interacted publicly and privately. In each chapter Halevi explores a different layer of human interaction, following the movement of the corpse from the deathbed to the grave. In the process he analyzes the real and imaginary relationships between husbands and wives, prayer leaders and mourners, and even dreamers and the dead. He describes how Muslims wailed for the deceased, prepared corpses for burial, marched in funerary processions, and prayed for the dead, highlighting the specific economic and political factors involved in these rituals as well as key religious and sexual divisions. Offering a unique perspective on the making of Islamic social and religious ideals during this early period, Halevi forges a fascinating link between the development of funerary rites and the efforts of an emerging religion to carve out its own, distinct identity. Muhammad's Grave is a groundbreaking history of the rise of Islam and the roots of contemporary Muslim attitudes toward the body and society.

"Jones beschreibt in seinem Werk die Entwicklung Europas in langfristiger Sicht. Dabei legt er besonderes Gewicht auf die Zeit zwischen 1400 und 1800 und auf Vergleiche mit Asien. Das System, das damals in Europa entstand, ist wichtig für die Geschichte dieses Erdteils und als Vorläufer für die USA, Kanada, Australien, Neuseeland, Lateinamerika und Südafrika." -- Herausgeber.
