Mitología Clásica: Historias Fascinantes de los Dioses y Héroes Griegos y Romanos, y las Criaturas Mitológicas (Libro en Español/Classical Mythology Spanish Book Version) (Spanish Edition)

by Matt Clayton

Dos manuscritos en un libro

  • Mitología Griega: Fascinantes Mitos de Dioses, Diosas, Monstruos y Héroes Griegos
  • Mitología Romana: Una Guía Fascinante de los Dioses Romanos, Diosas y Criaturas Mitológicas

Aunque los dioses y diosas griegos eran seres inmortales y poderosos, estos eran muy similares a los humanos que los adoraban. Los dioses y diosas sufren ataques de celos, se enamoran, se enfadan cuando se sienten engañados, y otorgan bendiciones cuando son honrados. De igual modo, los héroes son de proporciones épicas: su fuerza, velocidad y habilidad los separan de otros mortales; pero, como todos los humanos, sufren de dolores, enfermedades y muerte.

Este libro es una ventana al pasado. A través de él podrás disfrutar de historias entretenidas mientras aprendes sobre los mitos griegos. Mitos que subyacen en las raíces de la civilización occidental, marcando su cultura y lenguaje.

The Wars of the Roses were a series of civil wars in England fought between the House of Lancaster and the House of York between 1455 and 1485. Over a thirty-year period, England had five rulers, three of whom were killed or executed. Power changed hands on even more occasions as an ineffective king, Henry VI, was subject to mental breakdowns and protectors of the realm were regularly appointed to rule during these episodes, thereby disaffecting Henry’s ambitious queen, Margaret of Anjou. Though the battles fought were limited in scope, one of these, the Battle of Towton, is considered the bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil. The nearby river was described as running red with the blood of some 38,000 soldiers who lost their lives that day.

World War I, or the Great War, was believed to be “the war to end all wars.” Because of the incredible extent of destruction and the staggering number of wounded and dead, even those who lived through it could scarcely comprehend its horror. Beginning in 1914, alliances between powerful nations soon plunged the world into a global conflict. Fightingâ??including miserable trench warfareâ??broke out in practically every corner of Europe and spread around the world to Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Inside you will read about…

â?? The Causes of World War I
â?? The War in Europe: The Western Front
â?? The War in the Balkans and the Ottoman Empire
â?? The United States
â?? Russia and the War in Eastern Europe
â?? The Impact of World War I
And much more!

Even the peace treaty in 1919, which occurred during a deadly worldwide influenza pandemic, brought no relief; another world war, intricately connected to the first, would break out in only two short decades.



The English Bible and the Seventeenth Century Revolution

by Christopher Hill

The Bible may be the most important book ever written.

But in 17th-century England it was also a radical document.

In this brilliant history Christopher Hill analyses the importance of the Bible to the life of England in the period after it became widely printed and read.

The book, in particular the Old Testament, taught citizens of England how to react to current events and situations in a very volatile era of its history.

As well as looking at the Bible’s influence on literature, chiefly the works of Bunyan and Milton, Hill also describes the concept of Fast Sermons by men of faith and politics.

More than any other nation at the time, England saw itself as the â??chosen nation’.

â??What caused the English civil war? What brought Charles I to the scaffold? The answer to both questions: the Bible. To sustain this provocative thesis, Christopher Hill’s maps English intellectual history from the Reformation to 1660, showing how scripture dominated every department of thought from sexual relations to political theory…His erudition is staggering’ â?? John Carey in the Sunday Times

â??Once again, Hill has succeeded in turning upside-down a world of common misconceptions … The complexity of the relationship between seventeenth-century politics and religion is everywhere in evidence in Hill’s book…It is difficult to imagine anyone else writing this book, astonishing in its originality and yet also in the way it makes that originality seem so obvious once stated’ â?? B. A. Cummings in the New Statesman & Society

â??A historical study which deepens and intensifies the peerless work its author has already done in this period…Reading Hill’s book, we watch an enormous subject become manageable in the hands of its acknowledged master’ â?? Andrew Motion, the Observer

â??Hill’s discussion…is fascinating, and as usual sure to provoke debate’ â?? A. C. Grayling in the Financial Times

â??A fascinating study…Hill’s work is rooted in that all-embracing 17th-century scholarship of which he is the master, so that his multitudinous references, to say nothing of his allusions to fellow scholars, august or aspiring, are almost as dazzling as the text itself’ â?? Antonia Fraser in The Times

Christopher Hill (1912-2003) was a university lecturer in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century history, and from 1965 to 1978 he was Master of Balliol College. His many books and textbooks include â??Milton and the English Revolution’ and â??Liberty Against the Law’.
