Büyük Sel uklu Sultanlar ile Abbas Halifelerinin li kileri///The Relations Between the Seljuk Sultans and the Abbasid Caliphs
Muhittin KAPAN?AH?N
History Studies : International Journal of History , 2012,
Abstract: Abbasid Empire (750-1258) was one of the long lasting empires in Islamic history. Although the political existence of the empire lasted five centuries, its political influence did not last that long and it fell under the control of different political powers. While the Abbasid caliphs lost their political authority, especially under the rule of Shiite Buyid dynasty, the fact that every new Muslim state dependent on the recognition of Abbasid caliphs for Islamic legitimacy helped the Abbasids to preserve their nominal prominence. The Seljuk Empire emerged at a time when the Abbasids sought to escape from the Shiite dominance of the Buyid dynasty, and when the Seljuks were in search of Islamic legitimacy. Abbasid-Seljuk relations, which started during the reign of Seljuk founder Tugrul Bey and lasted until the reign of last Seljuk sultan Sencer, created a status quo in which the Abbasid caliphs held religious authority while the Seljuks held the political power
After the End: Rebuilding Post-Imperial Societies/// Biti ten Sonras : mpatorluk Sonras Toplumlar n Olu turmak
Dr. Thomas SMEDLEY
History Studies : International Journal of History , 2012,
Abstract: This article examines the construction of two post-imperial societies comparatively by analyzing the leadership of a twentieth century Turk, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and a fifth century Christian, Augustine of Hippo. Both leaders offered credible alternative vision for their people. This article argues that both leaders provided feasible answers to a handful of basic questions that underlie any viable social order, using similar rhetorical strategies to powerfully reshape the hopes, dreams, and expectations of those they influenced.

Estudios de filosof?-a pr??ctica e historia de las ideas , 2006,
Abstract: this work, written from a critic standpoint, is about the meaning of the concept of wall in its sociopolitical and symbolic context. deriving from the outspreading of walls all over the world between nations, countries, cultures, we pose the existence of virtual walls such as the "poverty line", which mark the exclusion of big social groups.
Clergy, nobility and crown in Decadência
Liu, Yi;
História (S?o Paulo) , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-90742005000100007
Abstract: in the current work i intend to inquire into the internal motives that led the portuguese seaborne empire to decadence. after making a brief review of the historiography about the decline of estado da índia, i proceed to the analysis of the crown-church-nobility triangle in the course of os descobrimentos, and of their respective roles in the evolution of portuguese empire. the absolutization of the crown, the over-expansion of the clergy and the empowerment of the aristocracy became the most conspicuous and longstanding features in the portuguese social fabric after the country launched herself into maritime undertakings, which crippled her agriculture and retarded the industrialization. as a consequence, the rise of bourgeoisie and the transformation of mercantilist economy into the capitalist were obstructed, and a strong adventurous but non-productive spirit mixed with disdain of manual work prevailed both in metropolis and in overseas territories. in conclusion, the portuguese decadence commenced from within rather than from without, and far prior to dutch intrusions in portuguese asia, which only accelerated the decline.
Reforma e profecia: a a??o do arcebispo de Goa e místico D. Gaspar de Le?o
Faria, Patricia Souza de;
História (S?o Paulo) , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-90742009000100006
Abstract: a study of the first archbishop of goa, d. gaspar de le?o (1560 - 1576), who played a significant role in the christianization process of the portuguese-controlled lands in asia. during this period d. gaspar administrated the archbishopric of goa, the goa inquisition (the sole inquisitorial court instituted in a portuguese domain) was created, the first provincial council in the region was founded in 1567, and the constitutions of the archbishopric of goa were drawn up, in consonance with the council of trent's resolutions. all of which motivated the formation of provincial synods and the work of the bishops in carrying out a spiritual reform among the clergy and the faithful. d. gaspar was influenced by mystic christian tendencies and published works about the mystical union or the expansion of evangelism, replete with prophecies concerning the final conversion of muslims and jews.
Consideraciones sobre el autor del De Rebus Bellicis y su valoración en la historiografía contemporánea
Sánchez Vendramini,Darío N;
Temas medievales , 2009,
Abstract: the de rebus bellicis is a small text of petition addressed by an unknown author to a late antique emperor. it contains a list of proposals for economic, political and military reforms with the purpose of improving the roman empire's de fensive capacity in front of the barbarian invaders. contemporary historiography has valued these reform projects variously and in some cases even expressed opposing views. equally different are the interpretations made of the author on ground of the text. the present article, after briefly reviewing the text and structure of the treatise, compares it with other written material of its time with the purpose of placing it in context. this analysis proves the de rebus bellicis to be a typical product of its own time. finally, a new interpretation of two doubtful fragments shows that modern evaluations of the text and its author have not always been solidly founded.

Moreira, Vania;
Revista Brasileira de História , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-01882010000100004
Abstract: the purpose of this paper is to emphasize the importance of historiography as an organizing tool during the making of the imperial regime in brazil, for it was able among other things to attest the social, political and territorial gains throughout the colonial period. i stress the historiographical divergence between defenders and detractors of their presence in national history, the connection of this intellectual debate with the imperial indigenist policy and finally the emergence of a national trend in the indigenist historiography and policy, which led to an artificial extinction of the indian presence and identity in our society and in imperial history while considering them henceforth exclusively as brazilians.
