Read e-book online Kriegspilger: Der erste Kreuzzug (German Edition) PDF

By Peter Frankopan

ISBN-10: 3737100039

ISBN-13: 9783737100038

"In jeder Hinsicht ein bedeutendes Buch – überwältigend und beeindruckend." Simon Sebag Montefiore

Peter Frankopan betrachtet eine der folgenreichsten kriegerischen Expeditionen der Weltgeschichte in völlig neuem Licht. Im Jahr 1096 zogen rund achtzigtausend Kreuzfahrer los, um Jerusalem und die Grabstelle Jesu nach über vierhundert Jahren wieder unter christliche Herrschaft zu bringen. used to be sie in Angriff nahmen, conflict ein mehrjähriges, von Grausamkeit, Krankheit und Tod gezeichnetes Unterfangen, das die Welt für lange Zeit prägen sollte: Europa profitierte von der kulturellen Blüte des Morgenlandes, der Orienthandel und mit ihm die italienischen Hafenstädte florierten, vier Kreuzfahrerstaaten wurden errichtet.
Auf der Grundlage von bislang kaum beachteten Quellen erzählt Peter Frankopan die Geschichte dieses "Heiligen Krieges" – und rückt erstmals Alexios, den Kaiser des Byzantinischen Reiches, ins Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit. Denn ebenjener Herrscher aus dem Osten warfare der eigentliche Initiator des Kreuzzuges und nicht, wie gemeinhin angenommen, der römische Papst. Frankopan wagt eine bemerkenswerte Neuinterpretation jenes epochalen Ereignisses, die unser Verständnis der Kreuzfahrerbewegung verändern wird. Geschichtsschreibung, wie sie sein sollte: anschaulich, spannend und voller neuer Erkenntnisse.

INTRODUCTION.

There is rarely anyone who, as a school-boy, had now not got the hearth of mind's eye and the stimulus for experience and a roaming lifestyles during the stirring narratives bearing on Captain Kidd and different recognized sea rovers. a undeniable ineffable glamor metamorphosed those robbers into heroes, and lent an inalienable license to their “calling,” in order that the songster and romancist present in them and their deeds prolific and genial topics, whereas the imprecise feedback of hidden treasures and mysterious caves have encouraged many expeditions looking for buried fortunes which, just like the Argo of outdated, have carried their Jasons to the legendary Colchis.

The pens of Byron, Scott, Poe, Stevenson, Russell, and Stockton, and the musical genius of Wagner, have been steeped within the effective suggestion of those lawless adventurers, and Kingsley present in Lundy Island, the erstwhile nest of the reckless tribe, a subject matter for his “Westward Ho!”

Byron, in “The Corsair,” sings:

O’er the blissful waters of the dark-blue sea,
Our innovations as boundless, and our souls as free,
Far because the breeze can undergo, the billows foam,
Survey our empire, and behold our home!
These are our geographical regions, no limits to their sway,
Our flag the sceptre all who meet obey.
Ours the wild existence in tumult nonetheless to range
From toil to leisure, and pleasure in each change.
Piracy used to be the expansion of maritime experience, and constructed with the development of trade. The Phœnicians and Greeks have been specifically apt within the interstate wars which often degenerated into rapine and plunder, and with them piracy turned a well-known firm. In Homeric instances it used to be dignified with a appreciate important of a nobler cause—a sentiment within which the freebooters of later centuries took smug delight. The pirate—cruel, vicious, debased to the bottom measure of turpitude—established an ethical code governing his activities and circumscribing his wanton license, and it used to be within the rigorous observance of those “trade legislation” and customs in their realm that this abortive feel of honor manifested itself.

The successes of the Phœnicians and Greeks quickly made the Mediterranean the theatre of maritime theft, in later years carried out below the authority, sanction, and immunity of the Barbary powers. in reality, so reckless had the company develop into that the temerity of the loose lances knew no bounds, and headquarters, with the intention to communicate, have been verified, and for a very long time maintained, at Cilicia.

The full of life crusade of Pompey in sixty seven B.C. opposed to the pirates was once however the precursor of that methodical defence which the countries of the realm ultimately followed. The Hanseatic League of the towns of Northern Germany and neighboring states, without doubt, had its foundation within the necessitous mixture of retailers to withstand the assaults of the Norsemen. England despatched out many expeditions to wreck the pestiferous freebooters who swarmed from the African coast, and at last, in 1815, the us despatched Decatur to Algiers to annihilate the nefarious corsairs, who had thrived and develop into brazen of their recklessness through the 3 centuries in their ascendant energy. The incursions of the Algerine pirates have been made as some distance north as England, eire, and Iceland, and during them an iniquitous slave exchange used to be constructed. The legislation of countries didn't position its ban upon this slave site visitors until eventually by way of statute England and the us tried to obliterate this ineradicable blot upon our civilization, and just a part century in the past Austria, Prussia, and Russia declared it to be piracy.

Piracy, by means of the legislations of countries, is punishable with demise in the jurisdiction of any country below whose flag the trap can have been made, for the pirate is the typical enemy of mankind. even though it has handed the zenith of its perverse glory, and smooth naval improvement has made it impracticable and most unlikely, vestiges of piracy stay within the Malay Archipelago and the China ....

12 months through 12 months the previous black tribes are demise out, and lots of in their legends and ideology are loss of life with them. those legends care for the area because the blacks knew it; with the Bush animals and birds; the powers of hurricane, flood, hearth, thunder, and magic, and the beings who they notion managed those powers; with the sunlight, moon and stars; and with the lifestyles and dying of fellows and women.

Many of the previous stories are savage adequate, yet via them runs a thread of feeling for the nobler aspect of lifestyles, as far as those wild humans may perhaps seize it.
