The genealogies of 1 Chronicles 1-9 have typically been viewed as the work of a redactor or redactors with no internal consistency, purpose or plan, and little, if any, relation to the narrative portions of Chronicles. In contrast to these opinions, this study shows that the genealogical section of the Chronicler's work is an ordered, well structured, unified whole. The Chronicler presents his genealogies chiastically, with the central focus of the chiasm upon the proper cultic officials, performing the proper cultic duties, in the proper cultic place. Each of the supporting levels of the chiasm build to this climax by declaring the inability of kings and armies to maintain the people within their land. The genealogies indicate that, in spite of the best efforts of leaders or people, society is sent into exile because of the unfaithfulness of the people and their leaders. The genealogies also declare the way out of exile. Humility and prayer are shown to bring blessing, prosperity and land, while periods of mourning over unfaithful behaviour results in the blessings of children and the building of cities. In the centre of it all is the cult. The cult is the means by which atonement is made for past acts of unfaithfulness, and without the cult, atonement for unfaithfulness is impossible. The genealogies indicate that the cult must be at the centre of the lives of the people. It cannot be neglected, but must be fully maintained and supported. Each of the cultic guilds must be present for the cult to function properly. Each guild must perform its function, and must do so in the place authorised by Yahweh. Only then can atonement for the people be made, and only then can the people possess their land.
A representação do espaço em escritos da margem - as crônicas de João do Rio e Ernesto Lara Filho The space representation written in the margin João do Rio and Ernesto Lara Filho chroniclesAna Paula Valentim Portela 24 April 2008 (has links)
A proposta deste trabalho é analisar a representação dos espaços marginais presentes nas crônicas dos jornalistas João do Rio e Ernesto Lara Filho. Espaços estes, físicos e literários, por onde circulam personagens de hábitos e identidades peculiares, figuras presentes no desenvolvimento real e simbólico da história social e política do Brasil na virada do século XIX e de Angola pré-independência.Por meio do gênero híbrido da crônica estes autores percorrem os caminhos tortos de suas sociedades, ambas formadas em contextos explícitos de desigualdade humana e social, heranças de uma mesma colonização, que se cruzam através do exercício de uma literatura marginal realizado por escritores que gozavam a realidade ao mesmo tempo em que criticavam ferozmente a ilusão de modernidade e progresso de suas épocas. This paper proposal is to analyze the representation of side spaces in the chronicles of journalists Joao do Rio and Ernesto Lara Filho. They are physical and literary spaces, where characters of peculiar habits and identities live. These ones figures on the real and symbolic development of Brazilian social and political history in the turn of XIX century and also in pre independence of Angola. By means of hybrid kinds of chronicle these authors cover the tortuous ways of their societies, both of them raised from explicit contexts of social and human discrimination, inheritances of the same colonization, that crosses through the exercise of a felonious literature carried by writers who enjoyed the reality at the same time they fiercely (strongly) criticized the modernity and progress illusion of their time.
Kroniky českobudějovických měšťanů Jana Jiřího Millauera a Jana Eichlera a jeho syna Jana Antonína Eichlera z druhé poloviny 18. století ve vzájemné komparaci The Chronicles of Burghers from České Budějovice Jan Jiří Millauer and Jan Eichler and His Son Jan Antonín Eichler from the Second Half of 18th Century and Their Mutual ComparisonKVĚTOVÁ, Miroslava 2014 (has links)
The thesis entitled The Chronicles of Burghers from České Budějovice Jan Jiří Millauer and Jan Eichler and His Son Jan Antonín Eichler from the Second Half of 18th Century and Their Mutual Comparison is divided into four chapters. The first one is devoted to the chronicle of Jan Jiří Millauer and is divided into several other parts, which describe externals of this manuscript, present the content of the book in detail and characterize the person of writer or recorder Jan Jiří Millauer. The first chapter is also devoted to issues of filiation of the chronicle, reasons of its emergence and its further history. The second chapter is also divided into several parts, which are devoted to the same issues as the first chapter, but this time in the context of the chronicle of Jan Eichler and his son Jan Antonín Eichler. Records from both chronicles are closely compared in the third chapter. The last chapter presents an attempt to compare records with each other extant chronicle of burghers from České Budějovice from the early modern period, especially to compare them with chronicles from the second half of 18th century. The thesis includes a list of references and sources and in the appendix of the thesis there are the editorial note, the scientific editions of the Chronicle of Jan Jiří Millauer and of the Chronicle of Jan Eichler and his son Jan Antonín Eichler, the local index and writing samples of the edited chronicles.
Postava krále Přemysla Otakara II. v českých kronikách - historie a literární fikce The character of Přemysl Otakar II. in Czech chronicles - history and literary fictionVAŇKOVÁ, Martina 2015 (has links)
The thesis The Character of Přemysl Otakar II. in Czech Chronicles History and Literary Fiction is analysing, as the name suggests, the image of Přemysl Otakar II. in chronicles. For this purpose, writings from the High and Late Middle Ages were selected; they are Kronika tak řečeného Dalimila, Zbraslavská kronika of abbot Ota and Petr Žitavský, Kronika of František Pražský, Kronika česká of Přibík Pulkava z Radenína, Kronika česká of Jan Marignola and Stručné sepsání římské a české from Neplach. From the period of humanism chosen writings are Historie česká of Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini and Kronika česká of Václav Hájek z Libočan. The first task of this thesis is not only to interpret the subjective attitude of each historian, but also to compare their opinions with each other, taking into account the period in which the writings were created. Another aim of the thesis is to capture the similarities and differences in interpretations of selected stories of medieval and humanistic chroniclers and also their comparison with the views of contemporary historians.

Pamětní knihy farností Volyňského vikariátu 17. - 19. stol. ve vzájemné komparaci The Commemorative Books of Volyně´s vicarage in 17th - 19th centurySTANĚK, Libor 2012 (has links)
The Diploma´s thesis The Commemorative Books of Volyně´s vicarage in 17th - 19th century deals with parish chronicles survived in this administrative district. Its endeavour is to describe and characterize them and its aim is to consider and present them from different points of view. The thesis is divided up into seven chapters. The very first of them appraise state of research passed off up to now and introduces related literature created so far. The second one brings basic information concerning church administration in the Czech Countries from the very beginning up to the establishment of vicarage system. The third chapter deals with history of Volyně´s vicarage and presents some of issues, of which resolution this administrative office was in charge. The third chapter describes orders for keeping parish chronicles. The fourth chapter describes all commemorative books survived in the administrative district. Inside and outside description of all the chronicles is introduced in this chapter, as well as determination of particular authors. On the basis of the sources acquired I endeavoured to describe common features of individual parish chronicles, to compare them with municipal chronicles and submit some of the potential ways of usage of commemorative books of parish office in the field of historical research as well. The very last chapter recapitulates and summarizes the acquired finding. Other potential ways and methods of progress which may be used are highlighted and pointed out here. At the end of the thesis, there is a list of literature and attachments which are composed of charts filled in with authors of records of particular parish chronicles. All the researched and examined parish chronicles are summarized in the attachments as well. Beside the charts, there are also plenty of photographs which depict all the researched parish chronicles, examples of manuscript or interesting pictures from several commemorative books.

The Chronicle of the thirteenth-century Franciscan friar Salimbene de Adam is filled with an abundance of self-referential passages. At almost every step of his narrative we are made extremely aware of Salimbene’s presence, as an author, a compiler of texts and anecdotes, a commentator and as an eye-witness to his age. Due to his ubiquitous ‘I’, Salimbene’s Cronica is often thought to be a subjective, biased and an ahistorical manifestation of traditional medieval universal histories. His supposed inappropriate self-interest has caused modern historians to mark both writer and text as a curiosity which defies any sort of logical definition. This mind-set has served not only to disconnect Salimbene and his Cronica from the historiographical, religious and social influences which pervaded his age, but importantly from the integral context provided by his work as a Franciscan friar. This thesis departs from treating Salimbene’s Cronica as a document to be mined for information about his world, an approach that largely eschews traditional methodologies associated with the study of chronicles. This thesis establishes the terms and boundaries of Salimbene’s authorship and contextualises them thoroughly with the performances associated with his duties as a Franciscan in the spiritual and social world of thirteenth-century Italy. Salimbene was primarily priest and preacher as he so often tells us. Viewing Salimbene’s authorial presence through the lens of his performances as an historian, preacher, confessor and priest reveals that his Franciscan ‘Experience’ informed and shaped noticeable narrative strategies which are associated with his efforts to establish and exercise authority both in his text and the world in which he lived. Rather than being a curious exception, Salimbene’s strong authorial persona was connected intricately to the changes in the social and spiritual milieus that irrevocably impacted upon the writing of history during the thirteenth century.

This thesis examines the use of orality as a means to self-definition in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. The main contention of this thesis is that within the Vampire Chronicles orality defines the self through incorporation, and that the bodily incorporation of food through a sexual consumption leads the vampire to naturally evolve a sense of who he or she is at any given moment in time. It is in this manner that this article discusses how the body, sexuality, food, and the possession of financial capital define and limit the individual's notion of self.

The 'cities of the Levites' have left no trace in the historical and prophetical literature of Israel; they appear only in P and Chronicles. They must then be either a fiction of the later compilers of the Law, or an earlier institution which made no great impact in monarchic times. This study therefore begins with a review of the materials of Levite history up to the Exile; the Levite cities must find a place somewhere within this setting, if they ever had any real existence. In the second chapter we turn to survey the development of modern critical study of Joshua and Chronicles, culminating in the classic interpretations of Wellhausen and, for Chronicles, of Rothstein and Rudolph. These provide the presuppositions widely accepted by more recent scholars. We then examine and compare the texts of the two versions of the Levite city list, from a literary standpoint, and conclude that, contrary to previous opinion, the one in Chronicles represents an earlier stage in the development of the tradition than that in Joshua. There are signs that at some time the list has been remoulded, with additions and deletions, to fit the pattern of four cities from each of the twelve tribes. Having recognised the difficulties in supposing the list to be entirely a late invention, in the second half of this study we try to find the Levite cities' place in history. First, the findings of archaeologists, traditio-historians and form-critics are examined, When their proposals appear not wholly satisfactory, we turn in chapter five to those who have attempted to re-appraise the character of the 'Levites' of these contexts. In pursuing this enquiry further, we reach the conclusion that these 'Levites' must be distinct both from the old secular tribe of Levi, and from the sacerdotal Levites of the Deuteronomic and Priestly literature. The 'cities of the Levites' seem to be towns which, in the second millennium, entered Israel by alliance rather than by conquest. Finally, we observe the measure of correspondence between the areas of 'Levite' and Hivite/Hurrian occupation, and raise the question whether the term 'Levite' here may not stem from a textual corruption of 'Hivite' in the Jerusalem archives.
