The second book in an all-new series based on the hit Ubisoft video game franchise Assassin's Creed. Part historical fiction, part tie-in, this novel creates an all-new narrative fans will love. In Last Descendants, Owen and a group of other teens located the first piece of an ancient and powerful relic long considered a legend - the Trident of Eden. This piece was sought by the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order, but before either organization could take the piece, it was stolen by an unknown third party. The tenuous relationship between Owen and the teens fractured, with some taking sides with the Templars and others with the Assassins. Book two picks up weeks after the events of book one. There are still two pieces of the Trident of Eden to find, and both groups are determined to not repeat their mistakes. The next piece is said to have been buried with Mongol warlord Genghis Khan, whose tomb has never been found. Now the teens on either side of the conflict will have to go deep into simulations in war-torn Mongolian China in a race against time to discover the next piece and ensure their safety before the others. 1.

Oriens Christianus 77 (1993)
72,00 € *

Die seit 1901 erscheinende Zeitschrift ist dem Christlichen Orient im engeren Sinn gewidmet, das heißt, sie lässt die griechische und die slawische Christenheit außen vor. Geografisch reicht ihr Gebiet von Äthiopien bis Georgien und vom Nahen Osten bis Indien und China. Entsprechend dem Programm ihres Gründers Anton Baumstark werden nicht nur Beiträge zu religiösen Themen veröffentlicht, sondern zur gesamten geistigen und materiellen Kultur der orientalischen Christen. Oriens Christianus deckt damit ein Teilgebiet der Orientalistik, aber auch der Ostkirchenkunde ab. Neben Aufsätzen und Buchbesprechungen werden Quellen in den verschiedenen Sprachen und Schriften des Christlichen Orients veröffentlicht. Die Zeitschrift, die unter internationaler Beteiligung erscheint, ist die einzige dieser Art im deutschen Sprachraum.From the Content/Aus dem Inhalt:- H.

The waves of Hindu conquests rolled onwards, and the aborigines submitted themselves to a higher civilization and a nobler creed. Rivers were crossed, forests were cleared, lands were reclaimed, wide wastes were people, and new countries hitherto aboriginal witnessed the rise of Hindu power and of Hindu religion. Where a few scanty settlers had penetrated at first, powerful colonies grew; where religious teachers had retired in seclusion, quiet villages and towns arose. Where a handful of merchants has made their way by some unknown river, boats plied up and down with valuable cargoes for a civilized population. -from Chapter XVIII: 'Expansion of the Hindus' First published in 1906, this classic nine-volume history of the nation of India places it among the storied lands of antiquity, alongside Egypt, China, and Mesopotamia. Edited by American academic ABRAHAM VALENTINE WILLIAMS JACKSON (1862-1937), professor of Indo-Iranian languages at Columbia University, it offers a highly readable narrative of the Indian people and culture through to the time of its publication, when the nation was still part of the British Empire. Volume I, From the Earliest Times to the Sixth Century B.C., by Bengali historian ROMESH CHUNDER DUTT (1848-1909), features entertaining and enlightening treatments of: . ancient India and the Rig-Veda . the Indo-Aryans and their literature . food and art in the Vedic age . the Brahmanic period and literature . the Mahabharata . the Ramayana . law, astronomy, and learning . the religious doctrines of the Upanishads . caste in the age of laws and philosophy . Buddhist sacred literature . life of Gautama Buddha . and much more. This beautiful replica of the 1906 first edition includes all the original illustrations.

The Life Or Legend Of Gaudama, Volume 1
3,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Buddhism and Gautama, the faith and its founder, whose followers are between four and five hundred millions of the human race, were comparatively unknown in Europe but a generation ago, and yet this great faith had continued for four and twenty centuries to spread over the vast lands of the East, taking deep and enduring root in all, from Bhotan, Nepaul, and Ceylon, over Further India to China Proper, Mongolia, Mantchooria, Tibet, and Japan. Buddhism, as it is found in Burmah, has a particular claim to the attention of a diligent and attentive observer. We there have that religious creed or system as pure from adulteration as it can be after a lapse of so many centuries. Philosophy never flourished in Burmah, and, therefore, never modified the religious systems of the country. Hinduism never exercised any influence on the banks of the Irrawaddy. Chinese and Burmese have often met on battlefields, but the influence of the Middle Kingdom has never established itself in Burmah. In other words, Chinese Buddhism has never been able to penetrate into the customs and manners of the people, and has not attempted to communicate its own religion to its southern neighbours. It would seem that the true form of Buddhism is to be found in Burmah, and that a knowledge of that system can only be arrived at by the study of the religious books of Burmah, and by attentively observing the religious practices and ceremonies of the people. This is what Bishop Bigandet has endeavoured to do throughout his work.
