Der Band untersucht den Antagonismus zwischen Tradition und Innovation im Mittelalter. Es gab Vorstellungen, die die Anbindung an normsetzende Vorbilder, aber auch die Zielgerichtetheit von Geschichte, voraussetzten. Von einem Urzustand ausgehend, gebe es die Abfolge von Erlösungstaten, Ausblicke auf Gefahren wie auch auf Glück verheißende Wendungen und mitunter sogar die Erwartung eines idealen Endzustandes. Neue Verfahren, neue Fertigkeiten, neue Erkenntnisse, neue ethische Einstellungen und neue Formen des Zusammenlebens stellten Etappen eines Fortschritts dar, der in der Gegenwart nicht Halt mache und auf eine Glück verheißende Zukunft gerichtet sei. Diese Sicht war aber konfrontiert mit Auffassungen, die Veränderungen als Abweichung von vergangenen Idealen und als Verfall beklagten und Gegenwart und Zukunft nur durch den Rückgriff auf erprobte und durch den jeweiligen Gründungsakt legitimierte Zustände meinten bessern zu können. Es gab also die Legitimierung durch Tradition, es gab daneben auch das Bekenntnis zu Neuerung, die als Verbesserung gewertet wurde. Das Bild der Zwerge, die auf den Schultern von Riesen stehen, gleichwohl aber weiter zu sehen vermögen, verweist auf die zwiespältige Haltung des Mittelalters. Der Band vereinigt Beiträge aus mehreren mediävistischen Disziplinen. Die Themenschwerpunkte sind Auffassungen von Zeit und Veränderung, Erfindungen in der Technik, Vermehrung der Güter und des Gewinns, Reform und Neuerung in Gemeinde und Staat, Vermehrung des Wissens, Inventionen in Kunst und Literatur und Möglichkeiten und Grenzen des Erkenntnisfortschritts.

Re-examining key passages in Dante’s oeuvre in the light of the crucial issue of moral choice, this book provides a new thematic framework for interpreting the Divine Comedy. Olivia Holmes shows how Dante articulated the relationship between the human and the divine as an erotic choice between two attractive women—Beatrice and the “other woman.” Investigating the traditions and archetypes that contributed to the formation of Dante’s two beloveds, Holmes shows how Dante brilliantly overlaid and combined these paradigms in his poem. In doing so he re-imagined the two women as not merely oppositional condensations of apparently conflicting cultural traditions but also complementary versions of the same. This visionary insight sheds new light on Dante’s corpus and on the essential paradox at the poem’s heart: the unabashed eroticism of Dante’s turn away from the earthly in favor of the divine.

Voltaire Almighty provides a lively look at the life and thought of one of the major forces behind European Enlightenment. A rebel from start to finish (1694-1778), Voltaire was an ailing and unwanted bastard child who refused to die; and when he did consent to expire some eighty-four years later, he secured a Christian burial despite a bishop's ban. During much of his life Voltaire was the toast of society for his plays and verse, but his barbed wit and commitment to human reason got him into trouble. Jailed twice and eventually banished by the king, he was an outspoken critic of religious intolerance and persecution. His personal life was as colorful as his intellectual life. Of independent means and mind, Voltaire never married, but he had long-term affairs with two women: Emilie, who died after giving birth to the child of another lover, and his niece, Marie-Louise, with whom he spent the last twenty-five years of his life. The consummate outsider; a dissenter who craved acceptance while flamboyantly disdaining it; author of countless stories, poems, books, plays, treatises, and tracts as well as some twenty thousand letters to his friends: Voltaire lived a long, active life that makes for engaging and entertaining reading.
