Just as the sea has played a pivotal role in the connectivity of people, economies and cultures, it has also provided a common platform for inter-disciplinary cooperation amongst academics. This book is a selection of conference papers and other contributions that has seen the coming-together of scholars and researchers from backgrounds as diverse as archaeology, history, ethnography, maritime and heritage studies of the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. Its strength lies in the way such diversity has been harnessed to provide an engaging and insightful study of the sea and its influences on various factors of life - both past and present.

Drawing on field research in Malta, Sicily and among Italian emigrants in Canada, this book explores the social influence of the Mediterranean climate and the legacy of ethnic and religious conflict from the past five decades. Case studies illustrate the complexity of daily life not only in the region but also in more remote academe, by analysing the effects of fierce family loyalty, emigration and the social consequences of factionalism, patronage and the friends-of-friends networks that are widespread in the region. Several chapters discuss the social and environmental impact of mass tourism, how locals cope, and the paradoxical increase in religious pageantry and public celebrations. The discussions echo changes in the region and the related development of the author's own interests and engagement with prevailing issues through his career.

Si l'histoire religieuse des populations littorales a suscité de nombreux travaux, elle a souvent omis d'étudier les expressions de la foi des hommes embarqués en mer. Les périples nautiques ne sont pourtant pas une ellipse temporelle hors de l'histoire : les navigations hauturières durent longtemps et bien des missionnaires embarqués forgèrent leur foi dans l'épreuve des flots. Ajoutons que la charge des âmes à bord soulève quantité de préventions historiques, qu'il s'agisse de l'encadrement religieux, lorsque le commandement lui-même se fait ministre du culte ; ou qu'il s'agisse de la délivrance des sacrements, en particulier quand la mort emporte les marins, alors qu'il est impossible de maintenir les rituels de deuil tels qu'ils sont pratiqués à terre. In fine, c'est le statut même du voyage en religion qu'il convient de questionner : l'histoire des religions méditerranéennes ne file-t-elle pas ses principaux motifs et sa doctrine sur un imaginaire nautique ? Le navire lui-même, artefact sacré en Occident, mérite une étude approfondie des réalités spirituelles de la navigation. Cet ouvrage ouvre donc des pistes qui croisent les pratiques cultuelles en mer avec les cultures religieuses. Pour nous rappeler que la mer est aussi un désert, au sens spirituel du terme.

Catalogo della mostra a Trieste, ex Pescheria - Salone degli Incanti dal 17 dicembre 2017 al 1 maggio 2018 ...L'Atlantico e il Pacifico sono i mari delle distanze, il Mediterraneo è il mare della vicinanza, l'Adriatico è il mare dell'intimità... Siamo partiti da qui, siamo partiti da lui, dal grande cantore di questo mare, Predrag Matvejevic. Per raccontare i mille racconti dell'Adriatico abbiamo scelto una voce narrante, l'archeologia subacquea, e abbiamo privilegiato le storie che il mare stesso custodiva nei suoi fondali o lambiva lungo le rive: i paesaggi costieri antichi, gli insediamenti, le strutture dei porti e degli approdi, i relitti delle imbarcazioni, le discariche portuali, i reperti senza contesto. Siamo entrati nelle lagune e abbiamo risalito qualche fiume, per accedere allo spazio “dilatato” dell'Adriatico, alla ricerca di navi e di porti fantasma inghiottiti dalle terre emerse. I relitti, miliari delle vie del mare, ci raccontano di flussi di merci provenienti da aree diverse del Mediterraneo, carichi che si compongono, si dividono e si irradiano nei grandi empori dell'Adriatico, epicentri di trade networks, come accade oggi nelle grandi metropoli commerciali. Rita Auriemma è archeologa, docente presso l'Università del Salento. La linea direttrice delle sue ricerche è l'archeologia dei paesaggi, in particolar modo costieri e subacquei, attraverso la riflessione sulle problematiche di carattere geomorfologico e paleoclimatico, lo studio delle forme e dei modi del popolamento costiero nell'antichità, le dinamiche di interazione tra uomo e ambiente. I suoi lavori mirano alla conoscenza, tutela e valorizzazione dei paesaggi d'acqua anche attraverso la realizzazione di sistemi informativi territoriali. Attualmente è Direttore del Servizio catalogazione, formazione e ricerca dell'Ente Regionale per il Patrimonio Culturale del Friuli Venezia Giulia.

Die Ausgabe bietet erstmals eine deutsche Übersetzung dieses Schlüsseltextes für die Einteilung und Bewertung der Wissenschaften nach der lateinischen Übersetzung von Gerhard von Cremona (1114-1187). Beigefügt ist eine kritische Edition des lateinischen Textes, der mit den überlieferten Handschriften des arabischen Originals abgeglichen wurde.

Tanger verlassen - das ist die Obsession in den Köpfen einer ganzen Generation. Bei schönem Wetter sieht man hinüber zur spanischen Küste. Auch Azel träumt sich hinüber in die »Festung Europa«. Nach einem Jurastudium hat er keine Aussicht auf einen Job. Er glaubt, einen sicheren Fluchtweg gefunden zu haben, doch die Hölle aus Armut, Korruption und Demütigung, die er in Marokko hinter sich lässt, ist nur das Spiegelbild der anderen Hölle, die ihn erwartet: Einsamkeit, Prostitution und der Verlust seiner Würde in der Emigration. »Der bedeutendste Schriftsteller des Maghreb.« Literaturen
