Gems of Heaven
This is the companion volume to one devoted to recent research on Byzantine jewellery published in 2010 and forms part of a series organised under the auspices of the British Museum Byzantine Seminar Series. The conference brought together leading scholars from Europe, the USA and the Middle East to discuss Late Antique gems and cameos. This is the first time that so many diverse papers, interdisciplinary in nature, have been assembled in a single volume and includes scientific papers addressing issues such as typology and sourcing of gemstones.
Ceremonial Entries in Early Modern Europe
The essays in this volume concentrate on festival iconography, the visual and written languages, including ephemeral and permanent structures, costume, drama, inscriptions and published festival books that ‘voiced’ the social, political and cultural messages incorporated in processional entries in early modern Europe. The volume includes a transcript of the newly-discovered Register of Lionardo di Zanobi Bartholini, a Florentine merchant, which details the expenses for each worker for the possesso (or entry) of Pope Leo X to Rome in April 1513.
It is 1866, and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields. On arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of twelve local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes. A wealthy man has vanished, a whore has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky. The Luminaries is an extraordinary piece of fiction. It is full of narrative, linguistic and psychological pleasures, and has a fiendishly clever and original structuring device. Written in pitch-perfect historical register, richly evoking a mid-19th century world of shipping and banking and goldrush boom and bust, it is also a ghost story, and a gripping mystery. It is a thrilling achievement and will confirm for critics and readers that Catton is one of the brightest stars in the international writing firmament.
Have you ever experienced the repeated delays, pressures, and disappointment associated with Saturn's transits and cycles? This classic astrology text, revered by both beginning and professional astrologers alike, offers a fresh perspective on how to handle the influence of this much-maligned astrological symbol. World-famous astrologer and Jungian analyst Liz Greene brings her unique psychological approach to Saturn, showing us how the frustrating experiences connected to this planet can be turned into opportunities for greater insight and meaning in our lives. Saturn, she says, symbolizes a psychic process--one that allows us to utilize the experience of pain for self-discovery and greater understanding. Greene traces the character of this most important planet through sign, house, aspect, synastry, and its role in mythology. She offers a brilliant analysis of Saturn to reveal the face of the "Initiator" who, for the price of our honesty, offers us greater consciousness, self-understanding, and, eventually, freedom. This 35th anniversary edition includes a new foreword by leading astrologer and author Robert Hand.

Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation
The basis for this book was a publication by Elsbeth Ebertin entitled Sternenwandel und Weltgeschehen. It contained cases of her own investigations and records. Her son, Reinhold Ebertin, and Georg Hoffman, Elsbeth's coworker, edited the text and added many new sources of information. Like Ptolemy's astronomical handbook, Almagest, this is the basis for much of the current information on fixed stars. Modern astrologers recognized that fixed stars carry an influence into the horoscope if conjunction a natal planet by longitude and even more so if by latitude. A prominent star on the Ascendant or Midheaven is said to be an indication of recognition achieved in the lifetime. The character of the star indicates the kind of influence the aspect will have. This book contains 73 major stars and describes their essential nature.
