Free Download Chastity: A Study in Perception, Ideals, Opposition By Nancy Deusen
2008 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 9047433416 | PDF | 3 MB
Chastity as a topic is an ideal interdisciplinary consideration since it accesses iconographical representation, the philosophical issues of purity, morality, and of innocence; the legal issues of loss and punishment, the historical issues of celibacy, and the legislation that topic evoked; as well as the role of chastity as a literary topos in Late Antiquity as well as the Middle Ages, for example, in medieval commentary traditions and within medieval vernacular literatures.

The Perception of the Pleiades in Mesopotamian Culture


Free Download Maria Teresa Renzi-Sepe, "The Perception of the Pleiades in Mesopotamian Culture"
English | ISBN: 3447120533 | 2024 | 458 pages | PDF | 23 MB
This is a monograph on the Pleiades, one of the oldest examples of a divine asterism. The Mesopotamian scholars understood it to be seven stars that received great attention in the cuneiform culture. This volume is designed as a case study on the topic of the conceptualisation of celestial bodies in Mesopotamia, and it aims to show how the Pleiades were perceived and thus described in the Sumerian and Akkadian languages. To this end, this monograph analyzes the intertextual relationships within a wide range of cuneiform sources – myths, prayers, and astral science texts – tracing one or more possible traditions in the perception of the Pleiades transmitted over almost two millennia. Great importance is given to divination and celestial omens, long lists of inferences featuring the Pleiades and the predictions associated with them. At the centre is the reconstruction and critical edition of three omen tablets devoted to the Pleiades, two from the celestial omen series Enuma Anu Enlil, and one from its serialised commentary summa Sin ina tamartisu. As an appendix, the volume also includes new insights into the structure and conception of omen texts in light of these new editions and new approaches to the history of scientific thought. Thus, The Perception of the Pleiades in Mesopotamian Culture combines cultural-historical research, philology and the necessary astronomical background in an innovative, interdisciplinary, and comprehensive way, which will be of interest not only to Assyriologists but also to specialists in the history of religion, astronomy, and other related fields.

Free Download Acceptance of Remote Services: Perception, Adoption, and Continued Usage in Organizational Settings By Nancy V. W├╝nderlich (auth.)
2010 | 262 Pages | ISBN: 3834919578 | PDF | 3 MB
The increasing employment of information and communication technologies in companies and households has led to considerable changes in the way services are conceived, developed, and delivered. Nancy V. W├╝nderlich employs a multi-method approach comprising an international qualitative study in Germany, USA and China and a longitudinal quantitative study to analyze remote services. She develops the Interactive Technology-Mediated Service Model (ITSUM) to provide a comprehensive approach of explaining both initial acceptance and repeated, continued usage of remote services in organizations. Finally, she derives managerial implications for remote service providers on how to increase remote service acceptance among their customers and facilitate the export of remote services.
