To prevent the desecration of the holy relic, they will need the help of a sage Buddhist monk, his young royal disciple, and a fierce tribe of Yeti warriors.

Transformations in Cuban art, literature and culture in the post-Fidel era Cuba has been in a state of massive transformation over the past decade, with its historic resumption of diplomatic relations with the United States only the latest development. While the political leadership has changed direction, other forces have taken hold. The environment is under threat, and the culture feels the strain of new forms of consumption. Planet/Cuba examines how art and literature have responded to a new moment, one both more globalized and less exceptional; more concerned with local quotidian worries than international alliances; more threatened by the depredations of planetary capitalism and climate change than by the vagaries of the nation’s government. Rachel Price examines a fascinating array of artists and writers who are tracing a new socio-cultural map of the island. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In this heartfelt memoir, Isabel Allende reconstructs the painful reality of her own life in the wake of tragic loss—the death of her daughter, Paula. Recalling the past thirteen years from the daily letters the author and her mother, who lives in Chile, wrote to each other, Allende bares her soul in a book that is as exuberant and full of life as its creator. She recounts the stories of the wildly eccentric, strong-minded, and eclectic tribe she gathers around her that becomes a new kind of family. Throughout, Allende shares her thoughts on love, marriage, motherhood, spirituality and religion, infidelity, addiction, and memory. Here, too, are the amazing stories behind Allende’s books, the superstitions that guide her writing process, and her adventurous travels. Ultimately, The Sum of Our Days offers a unique tour of this gifted writer’s inner world and of the relationships that have become essential to her life and her work. Narrated with warmth, humor, exceptional candor, and wisdom, The Sum of Our Days is a portrait of a contemporary family, bound together by the love, fierce loyalty, and stubborn determination of a beloved, indomitable matriarch.

O Mito Do Cristianismo Ininterrupto No Arquip Logo De Malta

arquipélago de Malta e Gozo, no mar mediterrâneo, se caracterizam por mais de 5000 anos de historia e colonização por diversos povos que deixaram suas marcas idiossincráticas. Um dos eventos mais importantes foi o naufrago e a estada de Paulo de Tarso em 60 EC que gerou a tradição segundo a qual o Cristianismo perdurou desde aquela época ate a contemporaneidade, sem interrupções. O mito do Cristianismo ininterrupto no arquipélago de Malta questiona essa versão e tenta provar a hipótese de que arqueologicamente o Cristianismo começou no século 4 EC. Abundam hipogeus e catacumbas que revelam a presença do Cristianismo entre os séculos 5 e 9 EC, embora o culto ao imperador fosse predominante durante a ocupação romana, enquanto o período bizantino carecesse de evidencia arqueológica farta e decisiva. Comente na década de 1960 que as ruinas de uma basílica bizantina foram encontradas. Ademais houve uma interrupção radical étnica e religiosa no período de dominação muçulmana entre 870 e 1048. Durante quase 180 anos as ilhas de Malta e Gozo ficaram despovoadas e somente em meados do século 11 colonos muçulmanos siculo-arabes iniciaram uma nova colonização. O arquipélago começou a tornar-se lentamente cristão a partir da segunda invasão normando por Rogério II em 1127; contudo, após cem anos desse evento, a população muçulmana ainda era predominante. O Cristianismo foi reintroduzido da sicilia efetivamente no século 12 EC, mas se consolidou somente nos séculos 13 e 14. Devido a um senso de culpa referente a um passado muçulmano que desejava suprimir, a população maltesa adquiriu uma profunda consciência crista e europeia e fabricou lendas e tradições sobre o “passado cristão” que compensariam e quase anulariam a interrupção religiosa. Esse livro narra a historia dessas tradições e recoloca a história do arquipélago sobre uma epistemologia histórica solida, dirimindo as fabricações construídas durante séculos.
