One cannot overestimate the contribution of the work of the Spanish Dominican Francisco de Vitoria (1483-1546) for the understanding and interpretation of the theology and philosophy of the Early Modern era. Vitoria´s main point of reference was the ´Summa Theologiae´ of Thomas Aquinas, whose analysis of ethical, juridical, and political questions (with reference to Aristotle´s philosophy) formed the basis for Vitoria´s broad discussion of problems we also face today. The treatise ´De lege´ (´About the Law´) explains the rationality of natural law, encourages the emancipation of civil law from ecclesiastical law, and calls for the submission also of the legislator to the law as well as the principle of publicness. These are all elements of a doctrine which has been fundamental for several generations of theologians, jurists, and philosophers.
The first volume of the ´Studies´ series deals with the central concepts of ´´Lex´´ and ´´Ius´´ and their systematic development within the political theory, philosophy, and law of the Middle Ages up to the School of Salamanca. This reconstruction of the specific form of a practical-juridical and politicalnormative body of knowledge in the Middle Ages focuses on the debates concerning the relationship between positive law, natural law and rational law, which shaped the European tradition of law, as well as the development of international normative regime. Among the contributors to this polylingual volume (with texts in German, English and Italian) are: Francisco Bertelloni, Luis Alberto De Boni, Norbert Brieskorn, Orazio Condorelli, Juan Cruz Cruz, John Doyle, Matthias Kaufmann, Jürgen Miethke, Kenneth Pennington, and Merio Scattola.

Dieses eBook: ´´Geschichte der Entdeckung und Eroberung Perus: Die Wahrheit über die Inkas und Konquistadoren von einem Teilnehmer - Vollständige deutsche Ausgabe ´´ ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Francisco Xerez (1504-1547) war ein spanischer Chronist in der Renaissance. Francisco Xerez wurde in Andalusien geboren, kam in jungen Jahren in die Neue Welt und schloss sich 1524 Francisco Pizarro bei dessen Eroberungszug nach Peru an. Xerez diente während der Eroberung des Inkareichs als Soldat und Schreiber (1531-33). 1534 kehrte er nach Spanien zurück. Noch im gleichen Jahr kam in Sevilla sein Buch ´´Verdadera relación de la conquista del Perú´´ heraus. Das Werk wurde bald ins Italienische und dann in andere Sprachen übersetzt und trug viel dazu bei, den Mythos vom sagenhaften Reichtum der Inkas zu verbreiten.

Der opulente Katalog zur umfangreichen Ausstellung der Staatlichen Kunsthalle Karlsruhe führt zum ersten Mal die facettenreiche Geschichte der Gattung Tierstillleben vom 16. bis zum 20. Jahrhundert vor Augen. Es werden rund 125 Meisterwerke bedeutender Maler von der Renaissance bis zur Moderne - von Albrecht Dürer über Francisco Goya und Edouard Manet bis zu Max Beckmann und Oskar Kokoschka - zu sehen sein, die einer seits von hohem ästhetischem Reiz sind und andererseits die Tradition verschiedener Motive durch die Jahrhunderte vor Augen führen. Immer wieder griffen große Meister dieses Thema auf, nahmen es als malerische Herausforderung an und fanden dabei zu neuen Darstellungsweisen und höchst unterschiedlichen Aussagen: Symbol adeliger Jagdlust und Privilegien, religiöser Verweis auf Tod und Auferstehung, Metapher für menschliches Leiden und Kriegsgräuel oder Ausdruck fleischlicher Genüsse und Sinnenfreuden.Neben eigenen Werken zeigt die Staatliche Kunsthalle Ölgemälde, Aquarelle und Skulpturen bedeutender, internationaler Leihgeber, darunter der Prado in Madrid, das British Museum in London, das Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, die Nationalgalerie in Prag, die Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen in München und das Kunsthistorische Museum Wien.
