Ein Autor und seine Region

Julia Burkhardt, Ulf Floßdorf & Anuschka Holste-Massoth
The Cistercian Caesarius of Heisterbach (ca. 1180–1240) is widely known for his Dialogus miraculorum. A similar collection of exempla by Caesarius is considerably less well-known: his Libri VIII miraculorum, the “Eight Miracle Books”. Both works are remarkable sources for 13th century religious and social history, and both mirror the region Caesarius lived and worked. In this article, we systematically analyze and compare persons, places and networks in order to reconstruct Caesarius’ narrative radius.

Sophie Ittner, Holger Gerdes, Miriam Athmann, Sara Luise Bauke, Martina Gocke, Julien Guigue, Sanjay Jaiswal, Timo Kautz, Oliver Schmittmann, Stefanie Schulz & Sabine Seidel
In recent years, the interest in subsoil has increased, since it can hold immense reservoirs of nutrients, organic matter and water. The subsoil can therefore provide important ecosystem services for the agricultural production system and beyond. This paper assesses the sustainability of two subsoil management measures with regard to the delivery of soil-related ecosystem services: a) the cultivation of deep-rooted pre-crops (biological approach) and b) stripwise mechanical subsoil loosening in combination with the incorporation of...

A detailed report of his work was published in 1913 leaving one thing open: the exact location of the site. In October 2019, surveys carried out in the region using LIDAR (Light detection and...

A Fresh Breeze in the Palace: The Courtly Function of the Yok Waal

Sven Gronemeyer
The present note is about a very rare lexeme in the epigraphic record: waal ‘fan’. Among the handful of examples, a unique context on the polychrome ceramic vessel K2914, the famous Denver Art Museum vase, allows identification of a hitherto unrecognized courtly function: yok waal as the ‘fan-bearer’ or ‘fan-wielder’.
