Peter Brown könyvei a rukkolán


Michael Majerus - Helen E. Roy - Peter Brown - Remy L. Poland - Guide ​to Ladybirds of the British Isles
Ladybirds ​belong to the scientific family Coccinellidae. Ladybirds provide a natural form of pest control with most species feeding on aphids, making them a favourite visitor to most gardens. In Britain, some 46 species belong to this family, although only 26 of these are recognisable as ladybirds, all of which are featured in the guide. The guide has been created in collaboration with the UK Ladybird Survey, which aims to facilitate the recording of all of the UK's ladybirds, and in particular the invasion of an Asian species known as the Harlequin ladybird. The guide features clear colour illustrations drawn by one of Europe's finest wildlife artists and illustrators, Chris Shields. Species have been grouped by appearance to help with identification. Information on colour pattern, habitat and distribution and hints to aid identification are provided in a comprehensive table. This is one of a comprehensive range of fold-out charts produced by educational charity FSC covering all aspects of identification. The 8 or 12 page fold-out charts are laminated making them robust and practical for use in the classroom or outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.

Peter Brown - Az ​európai kereszténység kialakulása
A ​nagyszerű történész, Peter Brown a nyugati kereszténység születésének mesteri panorámáját szokatlan módon rajzolja meg: nem egyháztörténetet ír, hanem a Római Birodalom hatalmas átalakulását mutatja be. Az új napnyugati civilizáció Írországtól, Britanniától Galliáig és Germániáig, Rómától Pannóniáig eltérő életvilágok gazdag kölcsönhatásaként bontakozik ki - s feltárul Észak-Afrika és Kis-Ázsia szellemiségével való összetartozásának és világuk távolodásának izgalmas folyamata. Meglehet, "barbárság" és Róma határai is egészen máshol húzódnak, mint hittük.

Peter Brown - Szent ​Ágoston élete
Peter ​Brown harminc évvel ezelőtt megjelent klasszikus életrajzát már hosszú ideje a Szent Ágoston életét és tanítását bemutató alapműként tartják számon. Nemrégiben azonban Ágostonnak számos eddig ismeretlen levele és prédikációja került elő, és ez a nagyszerű fölfedezés új megvilágításba helyezte püspökségének első és utolsó évtizedét. Ezek a szövegek arra késztették Peter Brownt, hogy felülvizsgálja némely megállapítását mind a Vallomásokat író szerzővel, mind pedig az észak-afrikai római uralom utolsó éveiben prédikáló és író idős püspökkel kapcsolatban. Brown professzor az eredeti életrajzhoz - melyet változatlan szöveggel közlünk - csatolt terjedelmes Epilógus két fejezetében foglalja össze gondolatait ezekről az újonnan felfedezett dokumentumokról. Emellett arról is áttekintést nyújt, miként alakult az Ágoston-kutatás a hatvanas évek óta.

Peter Brown - A ​szentkultusz
A ​szentkultusz áttörte azokat a képzeletbeli gátakat, amelyeket az ókor embere Ég és Föld, az isteni és az emberi, élő és halott, város és nem-város közé állított - csupán tajték volna mindez a "népi vallás" lomha óceánján?
