The Chronicler's Genealogies:Towards an Understanding of 1 Chronicles 1-9

J.Sparks@murdoch.edu.au, James Thomas Sparks 2007 (has links)
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.

Nesse caso, entende-se por inédito, um trabalho sem precedentes, original, em relação às crônicas de Lima Barreto, preparado em edição anotada do volume publicado em 192 do livro Bagatelas, por meio de pesquisa acadêmica, bibliográfica e em arquivos públicos. No Volume I, são apresentados os critérios teórico/metodológicos que onduziram as pesquisas e os resultados de dois outros estudos - um cronológico do percurso editorial do escritor, desde seus folhetins na imprensa até a publicação de suas Obras Completas entre as décadas de 1940 a 196; e outro, também cronológico, da construção da fortuna crítica sobre a sua obra literária na imprensa e em livro entre 1907 e 1949, ambos, necessários para avaliar o trânsito de Lima Barreto e a recepção da sua obra no circuito intelectual das primeiras décadas do século XX. Estão incluídos, também no Volume I, anexos com tabelas em ordem cronológica, e por órgãos de imprensa, da publicação das crônicas e da crítica a Lima Barreto na imprensa Abstract: This Master´s Dissertation, composed by two volumes with the diverse natures of research, has as a focus of analysis the literary/journalistic production of Lima Barreto (1881-1922), synthesized, within a noted reading of the chronicles of the Bagatelas volume, work which is unseen in relation to this body of work of the writer. In this case, it is understood as altogether unseen, a work without precedent, original, in relationship to the chronicles of Lima Barreto, prepared in a noted edition of the volume published in 1923 of the book Bagatelas, by means of academic research - bibliography found in public archives. In Volume I, the theoretical/methodical criteria is presented in order to set research and results of two other studies - one chronological of editorial percussion due to the writer, from his pressed pamphlets to the publication of his complete works between the decades of 1940 and 1960 and another of the critique about his literary work in press and in books between 1907 and 1949 - both, necessary to evaluate the traffic of Lima Barreto and the reception of his work within the intellectual circuit of the first decades of the 20th century

Postava krále Přemysla Otakara II. v českých kronikách - historie a literární fikce The character of Přemysl Otakar II. in Czech chronicles - history and literary fiction

VAŇKOVÁ, 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.

Entre o fabuloso e o verossimil : cronicas e epistemologia no processo de cognição da America Between the fabulous and the credible : epistemology in the cognition of Americ

Flavia Preto de Godoy Oliveira 2010 (has links)
Resumo: O objetivo central desse trabalho é analisar como a percepção da natureza americana foi construída nas crônicas escritas nas décadas que sucederam a chegada dos primeiros europeus à América e como foi reelaborada em períodos posteriores a partir da leitura desses mesmos documentos. Para alcançar tal intento foram analisadas algumas crônicas selecionadas, como as obras de José de Acosta e Pedro Mártir de Anglería, e suas formas de apreender a natureza do Novo Mundo. A partir da conexão desses textos a uma epistemologia específica que configurava o saber europeu do período, foi possível compreender as possibilidades e os limites que essas obras possuíam em suas representações da América. Em seguida, o trabalho avança temporalmente, investigando as visões sobre a natureza americana produzidas no século XVIII por estudiosos de expressão no universo intelectual europeu, como Buffon, relacionando-as a rejeição das crônicas como fonte de saberes sobre a América, bem como à emergência de novos pressupostos epistemológicos. Por fim, no terceiro capítulo, foram analisadas algumas das idéias e das obras escritas pelo naturalista alemão Alexander von Humboldt, conhecido como uma das principais figuras dentro da história natural da primeira metade do século XIX, mas também apontado pela historiografia como responsável pela criação de uma nova imagem do continente americano, em especial, de sua natureza. Procurou-se estabelecer a ligação entre essa forma de representar a natureza, suas leituras e apropriações das crônicas coloniais e epistemologia do período, entendendo-os como processos indissociáveis na compreensão não somente da obra humboldtiana, mas da imagem que se consolidou em relação ao continente americano Abstract: The main objective of this work is to analyze how the perception of American nature was developed in the chronicles written during the first decades after Europeans arrival to América and how it was re-elaborated in posterior periods through the reading of the same sources. To obtain that purpose, some selected chronicles were analyzed, such as those written by José de Acosta and Pedro Mártir Anglerìa, and theirs ways to apprehend the New World's nature were studied too. Based on a connection between those works with a specific pistemology, which configured the European knowledge in the period, it was possible to comprehend the possibilities and the limits of America's representations can be found in the chronicles. Furthermore, the work investigates the views of American nature produced in 18th century by erudite men in the European intellectual sphere, such as from Buffon and de Pauw. The views were on nected with the rejection of chronicles like knowledge concerning America and with the sprouting of news epistemic criteria. Finally, in the third chapter, the humboldtian ideas was analyzed. I tried toconnect Humboldt's views of nature with his reading and his appropriation of colonial chronicle and period epistemology

A conquista do Prata : analise da cronica de Ulrico Schmidl The conqueste of the River Plate : analysis of Ulrico Schmidl's chronicles

Luis Guilherme Assis Kalil 2008 (has links)
Resumo: Esta pesquisa busca analisar os discursos sobre os habitantes do Novo Mundo presentes na crônica de Ulrico Schmidl. Após permanecer por cerca de dezessete anos no sul da América (1536 ? 1553), o soldado bávaro retornou à Europa, onde se converteu à fé protestante e escreveu sua Viaje al Río de la Plata. A partir de seu relato, pretendemos observar de que forma elementos como o canibalismo, também descritos por outros autores (como Jean de Léry e Hans Staden), influenciaram as narrativas de viajantes, em especial, em questões como a humanidade dos indígenas e as dúvidas referentes às possibilidades de escravização e conversão. Pretendemos ainda examinar de que forma essas descrições foram utilizadas como base para os mútuos ataques entre católicos e protestantes no período Abstract: This research aims to analyze the New World inhabitants? discourses at the Ulrico Schmidl?s chronicle. After approximately seventeen years at South America (1536 ? 1553), the Bavarian soldier has returned to Europe, where he has converted himself to the protestant faith and has written his Viaje al Río de la Plata. Based on his account we intend to observe how elements like cannibalism, also described by others authors (like Jean de Léry and Hans Staden), have influenced the travelers narratives, especially about humanity of Indigenous and doubts about the possibilities of his enslaver and conversion. We still intend to study how these descriptions were utilized in mutual attacks between Catholics and Protestants

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.

Sacerdos et Predicator: Franciscan 'Experience' and the Cronica of Salimbene de Adam

Milne, Anna Catherine 2010 (has links)
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.

Vampires incorporated : self-definition in Anne Rice's Vampire chronicles

Chandler, Anthony N. 1997 (has links)
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.
