‘Every age yearns for a more beautiful world. The deeper the despair and dismay at the chaotic present, the more profound that yearning.’ These are Johan Huizinga’s timely words in his classic work, Autumntide of the Middle Ages. The new English translation and extensively illustrated edition of Herfsttij is a highlight of our 2020 titles presented in this catalogue.

2020 has turned out to be an extraordinary year. Our world has been confronted by a pandemic that has confirmed the need for trustworthy knowledge and created a renewed recognition of academic expertise. The coronavirus has also emphasised the need to share available information and how essential it is that researchers, teachers, students, professionals, journalists and others have universal access to scholarly information. It has therefore highlighted the value of digitally available content and Open Access.

This year the importance of being aware of our colonial past has become even more apparent. The recognition of the legacy of colonialism and slavery and the study thereof can help make present and future society unbiassed and more equal. Leiden University Press aims to contribute to this with our titles on global history. We are proud to present two new series: Global Connections: Routes and Roots seeks to expand our understanding and knowledge of the history of events, processes and movements. Books in the Critical, Connected History series explore histories that challenge existing demarcations between and within local, regional and interregional arenas. On 17 September 1945, in the aftermath of World War II, the Leiden University Press imprint was initiated with the mission 'to stimulate the publication of academic works that are of importance to Leiden University'. 75 years later we remain committed to our mission of providing our readers with books that offer reliable expertise, inspire and encourage informed debate.

Why Biodiversity Loss is Not a Disaster Everyone knows that species go extinct and biodiversity decreases. It seems obvious that this loss might have disastrous consequences. Maybe because of a cascading effect we will end up in a barren moonscape – and if that does not happen, we at the very least remain dependent on biodiversity for food, health and well-being. This essay tries to remove some fear; there are no reasons to believe that biodiversity loss will cause any kind of disaster. Nature is not like a machine that stalls if parts are being removed: a collapse of nature is not looming. And although specific species are required for various goods and services, this cannot be generalized to biodiversity overall. In this book Bas Haring argues that biodiversity loss is a pity, but not a disaster.

The most thought-provoking book of the year. De Standaard, about Plastic panda’s, the Dutch predecessor of this publication.

Atlas of Material Life Northwestern Europe and East Asia, 15th to 19th century Large-scale comparative economic history of westernmost and easternmost Eurasia is of importance for the understanding of global history. The book provides a description of material life in Northwestern Europe and East Asia, for the period from the late fifteenth to the late nineteenth centuries, with a focus on developments in Great Britain and the Dutch Republic on the one hand and China and Japan on the other hand. Like an atlas it provides information, in an accessible format, on the main characteristics of the economic landscape of this period. Maps, tables, graphs and figures are a prominent and integral part of the book. It shows the constraints to which all pre-industrial economies were subjected because of their dependence on organic natural resources but also the different ways in which the societies discussed dealt with those constraints. To provide a better understanding of this economy of limited possibilities, the final chapter of the book is devoted to the emergence of modern economic growth in Western Europe.

Peer Vries was professor for Global Economic History at the University of Vienna from 2007 to 2016. Since 2016, he is Honorary Research Fellow at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam. He published widely on global economic history and on the Great Divergence.

Herensha-Herencia Reflecties op Antilliaans erfgoed Het Antilliaanse culturele erfgoed verdient het om meer aandacht te krijgen en nader te worden onderzocht. Dit tweedelige boek, geschreven door een team van Antilliaanse en Nederlandse wetenschappers, biedt een staalkaart van reflecties op het culturele erfgoed van Aruba, Bonaire en Curaçao en van de Antilliaanse diaspora in Nederland. In het eerste deel, Toen en nu, wordt onderzocht hoe in het koloniale verleden werd aangekeken tegen de lokale culturen en hoe die culturen zich langzamerhand min of meer emancipeerden. In het tweede deel, Nu en verder, staan vragen centraal over de uitdagingen waarvoor deze culturen zich vandaag gesteld zien, in hun staatkundig ambivalente situatie als deel van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden, de vroegere kolonisator, en gezien de grote invloed van migraties en de sterke afhankelijkheid van toerisme. Een rode draad die door beide bundels loopt is hoe opvattingen over cultureel erfgoed verbonden waren en zijn aan uitdagingen van natievorming en nation branding.

Philippine Confluence Iberian, Chinese and Islamic Currents, c. 1500-1800 Situated at the crossroads of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the Spanish Philippines offer historians an intriguing middle ground of connected histories that raises fundamental new questions about conventional ethnic, regional and religious identities. This volume adds a new global perspective to the history of the Philippines by juxtaposing Iberian, Chinese and Islamic perspectives. By navigating various underexplored archival resources, senior and junior scholars from Asia, Europe and the Americas explore the diverse cultural, religious, and economic flows that shaped the early modern Philippine milieu. By zooming in from the global to the local, this book offers eleven fascinating Philippine case studies of early modern globalization. An exploration in the multiple cultural and social dynamics that shaped the Philippine Islands in the early modern period, this inspiring volume should be essential reading not only for scholars of southeast Asia and the Iberian empires but for all students interested in the intricacies of global history. – Giuseppe Marcocci, Associate Professor in Iberian History, Exeter College, University of Oxford.

The League against Imperialism Lives and Afterlives The League against Imperialism: Lives and Afterlives explores the dramatic and engaging story of a global institution that brought together activists across geographical and political borders for the goal of eradicating colonial rule worldwide. The League against Imperialism (LAI) attracted anticolonial activists like India’s Jawaharlal Nehru, Indonesia’s Sukarno, and Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta, as well as prominent figures like Albert Einstein, Ernst Toller, Romain Rolland, Upton Sinclair, Mohandas Gandhi, and Madame Sun Yat-Sen. This volume is the first to capture the global history of the LAI by bringing together contributions by scholars researching the movement from various regions, languages, and archives. Told primarily from the perspectives of those on the peripheries of empires, the volume argues that interwar anti-imperialism was central to the story of transnational activism during the interwar years and remained an inspiration for many who took on leadership roles during decolonization across the global south.

Alicia Schrikker and Nira Wickramasinghe (eds)

Being a Slave Histories and Legacies of European Slavery in the Indian Ocean Being a Slave brings together scholars and writers who try to come to terms with the histories and legacies of European slavery in the Indian Ocean. This volume discusses a variety of qualitative data on the experience of being a slave in order to recover ordinary lives and, crucially, to place this experience in its Asian local context. Building on the rich scholarship on the slave trade, this volume offers a unique perspective that embraces the origin and afterlife of enslavement as well as the imaginaries and representations of slaves rather than the trade in slaves itself. From Cape to Batavia, slavery is understood as a diffuse practice. This approach helps unearth 18th and 19th century experiences of being a slave in the Indian Ocean world, but also sheds light on continuities in bondage into the present. Contributors face an often hostile archive to extract traces of the lived experience of slavery in court records, petitions or private letters. They also listen to local voices by prying unexplored primary sources such as oral histories, memories and objects.

Nadine Willems

Ishikawa Sanshirō’s Geographical Imagination Transnational Anarchism and the Reconfiguration of Everyday Life in Early Twentieth-Century Japan In modern Japan, anti-establishment ideas have related in many ways to Japan’s capitalist development and industrialization. Activist and intellectual Ishikawa Sanshirō exemplifies this imagination, connecting European and Japanese thought during the first decades of the twentieth century. This book investigates the emergence of a strand of non-violent anarchism, reassessing in particular the role of geographical thought in modern Japan as both a vehicle of political dissent and a basis for dialogue between Eastern and Western radical thinkers. By tracing Ishikawa’s travels, intellectual interests and real-life encounters, Nadine Willems identifies a transnational ‘geographical imagination’ that valued ethics of cooperation in the social sphere and a renewed awareness of the man-nature interaction. The book also examines experiments in anarchist activism informed by this common imagination and the role played by the practices of everyday life as a force of socio-political change.

Nadine Willems holds a DPhil in History from the University of Oxford and teaches at the University of East Anglia. She specialises in the intellectual and cultural history of modern Japan, with a focus on East-West transnational exchanges and political dissension. She has also translated Japanese proletarian poetry.

Bureaucrats of Liberation Southern African and American Lawyers and Clients During the Apartheid Era Bureaucrats of Liberation narrates the history of the Southern Africa Project of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a civil rights organization founded in 1963 at the request of President John F. Kennedy. Between 1963 and 1994, the Southern Africa Project connected lawyers from Namibia, South Africa, and the United States. Within the Project’s network, activist lawyers exchanged funding resources, provided logistical support for political trials, and mediated new voting and governmental systems. The Project’s history provides a lens into twentieth century geopolitics tied to anti-apartheid, decolonization, Cold War, and movements agitating against white supremacy. In doing so, it pays careful attention to the Project’s different eras, beginning with US Executive Branch officials helming the effort and evolving into a space where more activist-oriented attorneys on both sides of the Atlantic drove its mission and politics.

Erik Odegard

The Company Fortress Military Engineering and the Dutch East India Company in South Asia, 1638-1795 The remains of Dutch East India Company forts are scattered throughout littoral Asia and Africa. But how important were the specific characteristics of European bastion-trace fortifications to early modern European expansion? Was European fortification design as important for early modern expansion as has been argued? This book takes on these questions by studying the system of fortifications built and maintained by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in present-day India and Sri Lanka. It uncovers the stories of the forts and their designers, arguing that many of these engineers were in fact amateurs and their creations contained serious flaws. Subsequent engineers were hampered by their disagreement over fortification design: there proved not to be a single ‘European school’ of fortification design. The study questions the importance of fortification design for European expansion, shows the relationship between siege and naval warfare, and highlights changing perceptions by the VOC of the capabilities of new polities in India in the late eighteenth century. …the best and fullest available guide to the evolution of fortification technology from the first bastions through into the eighteenth-century. − David Parrott, Professor of Early Modern History at New College, University of Oxford.

Erik Odegard wrote in Leiden his PhD on Dutch colonial governors in the seventeenth century. He has published on shipbuilding, agency problems, naval warfare and the Dutch chartered companies.

Johan Huizinga

Autumntide of the Middle Ages A study of forms of life and thought of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries in France and the Low Countries This new English translation of Huizinga’s Autumntide of the Middle Ages (Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen) celebrates the centenary of a book that still ranks as one of the most perceptive and influential analyses of the late medieval period. Its wide-ranging discussion of fourteenth and fifteenth century France and the Low Countries makes it a classic study of life, culture, and thought in medieval society. The new and now unabridged translation of the original text captures the impact of Huizinga’s deep scholarship and powerful language. The translation is based on the Dutch edition of 1941 – the last edition Huizinga worked on. It features English renderings of the Middle French poems and other contemporary sources, and its colour illustrations include over three hundred paintings and prints, illuminated manuscripts, and miniatures pertinent to Huizinga’s discourse. A complete bibliography of Huizinga’s sources will facilitate further research, while an epilogue addresses the meaning and enduring importance of this classic work. The translator has captured the poetic qualities of Huizinga’s authorial voice without sacrificing the readability of the text. (…) The result is a version of the text that captures Huizinga’s original voice better than either of the two previous English editions. − Benjamin Kaplan, the low countries.

HISTORY

Johan Huizinga (1872-1945), one of the founders of cultural history, ranks among the most influential Dutch thinkers of the twentieth century. He produced a body of writing on subjects that range from medieval art to the mechanization of modern America. The publication of Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen in 1919 brought him international renown, and contributed to the multiple nominations he received later in his career for the Nobel Prize in Literature, a rare accolade for a professor of history. Among his other important works are Erasmus (1924), In the Shadow of Tomorrow (1935) and Homo Ludens (1938). He died in internal exile, a few months before the liberation of the Netherlands.


Diane Webb has translated a wide range of literature on art-historical and historical subjects, including Ruusbroec: Literature and Mysticism in the Fourteenth Century by Geert Warnar, as well as Herman Pleij’s Dreaming of Cockaigne: Medieval Fantasies of the Perfect Life and Colors Demonic and Divine: Shades of Meaning in the Middle Ages and After (for which she was awarded the Vondel Prize for Dutch Translation in 2005).

Anton van der Lem, a leading expert on Huizinga, has written or edited many articles and books, including the recently published Rereading Huizinga. It was at his suggestion that Leiden University Press decided to publish this first full-text translation from the original Dutch into English, and he set the standard with his Dutch centenary edition of Herfsttij. A fellow of Leiden University Libraries, he is the editor of https:// huizinga-online.nl.

Graeme Small is Professor of Medieval History at Durham University and the author of several books, including George Chastelain and the Shaping of Valois Burgundy as well as Court and Civic Society in the Burgundian Low Countries (with Andrew Brown) and Late Medieval France.

J.T.P. de Bruijn

Pearls of Meanings Studies on Persian Art, Poetry, Ṣūfīsm and History of Iranian Studies in Europe Pearls of Meanings offers a collection of essays by J.T.P. (Hans) de Bruijn, a leading scholar in the field of Persian Studies, in which essential domains of Persian culture such as poetry and Sufism are analyzed in an exemplary fashion. While poetry plays a pivotal position in these essays, the reception of the Persian literary tradition in Europe is another focus of the volume. De Bruijn evaluates the works of a generation of scholars such as A. Reland (1676-1718), C.H. Ethé (1844-1917), J.F. von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856) and E.G. Browne (1862-1926) who devoted their attention to Persian culture. Scholars in the Humanities can be valued for their erudition (the sheer amount of evidence they are able to accumulate about an issue), their insight (the ability to discern what such evidence may mean) or informed enthusiasm (their empathetic and personal concern for their subjects), but it is rare for a scholar to be celebrated for all three of these qualities in the ways that Hans de Bruijn deservedly has been. These previously uncollected essays amply confirm the depth of his erudition, the brilliance of his insights, and the broad scope of his interests within Iranian literary Studies.− Dick Davis, Professor of Persian at Ohio State University.

In most fields, seminal works come around every few decades at best: works of real contribution where scholar and enthusiast alike is enlightened. This is that book in Persian and Sufi Studies. It presents rigorous scholarship, which is unapologetic in its discursive dimensions. It is a roadmap to a brilliant approach to Sufism—and its enigma and seduction. Dr. De Bruijn’s herculean efforts have deemed him a scholar on par with handful of scholars of Sufism and Persian in the last decades. Dr. Seyed-Gohrab has done the field a huge favour by editing his articles affording us a gaze into what mind-boggling rigor is all about. − Alireza Korangy, American University of Beirut.

Een sublieme nalatenschap De erfenis van Willem Bilderdijk Willem Bilderdijk (1756-1831) was de grootste dichter van zijn tijd, maar ook een dwarsdenker in eeuwig verzet tegen de tijdgeest, en een zonderlinge hypochonder, die tientallen jaren leefde met ‘de voet in ‘t graf’, zoals hij het zelf uitdrukte. Het universele genie Bilderdijk was een van de laatste Europeanen die nog over alle kunsten en wetenschappen een deskundige mening kon geven. Dat deed hij dan ook graag, en dat werd hem lang niet altijd in dank afgenomen. Naast talloze felle tegenstanders kende Bilderdijk ook een groot aantal bewonderaars. Al tijdens zijn leven begonnen zij gedrukte publicaties, documenten, brieven en afbeeldingen van en over Bilderdijk te verzamelen. Ook een haarlok van de grote dichter, zijn dodenmasker of een gipsen afdruk van zijn schrijfhand werden gewilde verzamel­ objecten. De collecties van de twee grootste verzamelaars kwamen uiteindelijk terecht bij de Maatschappij der Nederlandse Letterkunde te Leiden en bij de Vereniging ‘Het Bilderdijk-Museum’ te Amsterdam. In 2020 werden beide verzamelingen verenigd in de Universiteitsbibliotheek te Leiden, de stad die Bilderdijk zelf zag als ‘’t Eden der wareld’. In Een sublieme nalatenschap geeft een keur van Bilderdijk-kenners een indruk van de schatten die de nu op één plek bijeengebrachte collectie bevat. De bundel biedt een rijkgeschakeerd beeld van de temperamentvolle, excentrieke, twistzieke Bilderdijk en zijn tijd.− Miriam Piters, Tzum. Fijne essays en fraaie citaten over Willem Bilderdijk − Arjan Peters, de Volkskrant.

De neerlandici Rick Honings en Gert-Jan Johannes publiceerden tal van boeken en artikelen over literatuur- en cultuurhistorische onderwerpen, onder meer over Bilderdijk.

Changes in the Cultural Landscape and their Impacts on Heritage Management A Study of Dutch Fort at Galle, Sri Lanka This 47th volume of the ASLU series focuses on the practical challenges of managing a World Heritage listed historic city in a South Asian context. The Indian Ocean island of Sri Lanka’s Galle Fort, a walled town, identified as the best-preserved colonial fort in South Asia, is the subject of this study. The book analyses the costs and benefits of the fort’s World Heritage recognition to its local urban community and to the colonial fort itself, as a monument. It shows how thirty years of the World Heritage project at Galle Fort changed a once small seaside walled town with dilapidated colonial buildings into a tourist hot-spot and prime real estate, also changing the lives of its inhabitants. The work addresses the range of impacts of this process such as gentrification, real estate pressures, and urban regeneration in a balanced way. It argues that the best practises of participatory and people-centred approaches of managing urban heritage at the global level are slow to progress at the local level. By highlighting the strong emotional attachment of local residents towards their landscape, the book proposes seeing the residential urban community as ‘preserver’ of the historic city. While seeing the World Heritage listing of Galle Fort optimistically, the book encourages the use of the World Heritage emblem for the well-being of local residents, who bring life to these landscapes.

Alberto Sarcina

De la gloria al olvido Estudio arqueológico de la primera ciudad española en la Tierra Firme de América: Santa María de la Antigua del Darién Santa María de la Antigua del Darién was the first city that the Spanish founded in the ‘Tierra Firme’ of America in 1510. It became the capital of the territory of Castilla del Oro until the founding of Panama City. A few years after the transfer of the capital to Panama, Santa María de la Antigua was gradually abandoned until in 1524 it was assaulted and burned by the indigenous people. The archaeological project in the place where Santa María de la Antigua del Darién was located, promoted by the Colombian Ministry of Culture and the Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History (Icanh), since 2013, has allowed to delimit the space of the city and it has brought to light housing floors, cobbled courtyards, streets, a blacksmith's workshop and fragments of indigenous and European material culture. The project has also revealed an important pre-Hispanic phase prior to the founding of the Spanish city. Based on these investigations, Santa María de la Antigua del Darién has been declared a site of cultural interest in 2015 and a National Archaeological Park in 2016. This book presents the results of a rigorous archaeological investigation in the Colombian northwest that was conducted with the stratigraphic method and unites extensive work with the community with a multidisciplinary approach.

Alberto Sarcina is an Italian archaeologist, with extensive experience in field work and an expert in stratigraphy and archaeological documentation. Since 2013 he is responsible for the archaeological investigation of the Santa María de la Antigua del Darién site (Colombia). He is professor of excavation methodology and works for the Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History.

Natalia R. Donner

The Potters’ Perspectives A Vibrant Chronological Narrative of Ceramic Manufacturing Practices in the Valley of Juigalpa, Chontales, Nicaragua The work of Fernand Braudel (1949) should have revolutionized the way archaeology conceptualizes temporal scales and builds chronological narratives. Even though Braudel’s general views did impact archaeological theory deeply, his three different time-scales, together with insights into duration as the inner dialectic between different temporalities, remain neglected in archaeological practice. Nowadays, ceramic chronology building in archaeology still relies on two main variables: time-space and pottery styles. This book aims to challenge this paradigm and propose a new way for narrating vital chronologies. The point of departure for this endeavor consists of a longue durée geographical unit, the valley of Juigalpa, in central Nicaragua. Through a view of materials— and especially ceramics—as complex and embodied palimpsests, as the bundling of unfolding traces; a chronology including five different intervals based on ceramic technologies is presented, from the first traces of human practices in 300 CE through to the present.

Natalia Donner (PhD, Leiden University) is an Argentinian-Mexican archaeologist, whose work questions the epistemological and colonial foundations of Archaeology.

ARCHAEOLOGY


Hans Kamermans and L. Bouke van der Meer (eds)

Designating Place Archaeological Perspectives on Built Environments in Ostia and Pompeii Spatial analysis on the basis of material culture has always been one of the mayor topics in archaeological research. Designating place analyses the urban space of Roman Ostia and Pompeii in different ways: geophysical analysis, spatial analysis, iconographic analysis and epigraphic analysis. This book is based on the work of Hanna Stöger, the Leiden scholar who died in 2018. Hanna’s work in Ostia was not finished and this book contains contributions from people who inspired her, people she worked with, people she inspired and people who were presented on sessions she organized. The part on geophysics contains new data on Ostia from teams from the University of Delft in the Netherlands and from Canada and Germany. The spatial analysis discusses mainly the pro and cons of the use of Space Syntacs, the computer program Hanna used to analyse Ostia with contributions from scholars from the United Kingdom, Japan, Italy, the Netherlands and the USA. The last two parts on iconographic and epigraphic analysis consists of articles by researchers from the Netherlands and Norway.

NEW BOOK SERIES

Global Connections: Routes and Roots Global Connections: Routes and Roots seeks to explore histories that challenge existing demarcations between and within local, regional, and interregional arenas. The series encompasses single-site and vernacular histories as much as studies of long-distance connection. This new series seeks to bridge early modern and modern history. By taking a wide timeframe of c. 1200 to the present, we embrace the many and shifting nodal points, key regions, modes of transportation and other forms of connectivity that together form the ‘routes’ and ‘routes’ of global history. This includes the making and unmaking of power in different manifestations, as well as the intellectual genealogies and trajectories of the ideas that did so.

NEW BOOK SERIES

Critical, Connected Histories The series Critical, Connected Histories seeks to explore unfamiliar social, cultural, and political issues that connect people of Asia, the Middle-East, Africa, America and Europe in the modern age. Current trends in historiography explore transnational flows and networks, with their themes of circulation and connection receiving a welcome appeal. This new series challenges legal and imagined boundaries while examining the durability of their structures of power. In addition, the series cautions against the potential universalisation of histories, and situates queries within different vantage points. Multi-disciplinary in their approach, the books in this series draw from sources in multiple languages and media. They seek to expand our understanding and historical knowledge of events, processes, and movements. In denaturalising the practices of historical writing, this series offers a forum for scholarship that is both theorised and empirically rich, and one that in particular addresses the violence and inequality of the modern ages as well as its promises.

BACKLIST HIGHLIGHTS Johan Huizinga

Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen van Johan Huizinga verscheen voor het eerst in 1919. Honderd jaar later geniet Herfsttij terecht een onverminderde populariteit. Het boek is een van de grootste en meeslependste klassieke geschiedwerken. Zowel in binnen- als buitenland is er grote waardering voor Huizinga’s werk – niet alleen vanwege zijn inlevingsvermogen in de geschiedenis en zijn cultuurhistorische visie, maar ook omwille van zijn prachtige taalgebruik. Herfsttij is in meer dan twintig talen vertaald. In deze gebonden, rijk geïllustreerde jubileumuitgave van Herfsttij kan de lezer bij de tekst de kunstwerken zien die door Huizinga genoemd worden. Naast de bekende meesterwerken van Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden en tijdgenoten zijn ook de door hem gebruikte literaire werken met miniaturen uit de handschriften afgebeeld. Zoveel mogelijk van wat door Huizinga in de tekst is genoemd wordt in beeld gebracht, waardoor het boek meer dan 300 illustraties in kleur bevat. Initiator en hoofdredacteur van deze jubileumeditie is Dr. Anton van der Lem, Huizinga-specialist en verbonden aan de Universitaire Bibliotheken Leiden als conservator oude drukken. In zijn nawoord ‘Honderd jaar Herfsttij’ zet hij de receptiegeschiedenis van Herfsttij uiteen. Door hem is het boek nu ook voor het eerst voorzien van een volledig uitgewerkte bibliografie. Ik moet zeggen als [de illustraties] op zo’n manier erin staan, in hoge resolutie, dan gaat het bijna weer helemaal leven. En het biedt denk ik ook voor ons als moderne lezers, ook als je niet historicus bent, de kans om de context beter te snappen. − minister-president Mark Rutte.

Rembrandt is onlosmakelijk verbonden met de stad Leiden. Hij werd er geboren, ging er naar school en begon er zijn carrière als een van de grootste schilders in de Nederlandse geschiedenis. Eenzelfde verbondenheid is er tussen Rembrandt en de Universiteit Leiden. Hij schreef zich daar op 20 mei 1620 in als student letteren en deed dat, zoals uit deze publicatie zal blijken, in februari 1622 nog eens. Die inschrijving en herinschrijving worden in de Universiteitsbibliotheek bewaard, samen met talloze andere bronnen over Rembrandts leven en werk. Bovendien bezit de bibliotheek tal van prenten en tekeningen van Rembrandt, en ook van zijn tijdgenoten.

The Rules of Academic Research

In Rembrandt en de Universiteit Leiden wordt een selectie uit de collecties van de Universiteit getoond en besproken – bronnen, documenten, etsen en tekeningen. Zo wordt een beeld geschetst van Rembrandts Leidse tijd, van zijn geboorte in 1606 tot aan zijn vertrek naar Amsterdam in 1631.

In addition to presenting the first parallel text translations of these works, the Persian texts incorporate notes on variants in the early published sources. An introduction outlines the intellectual and political landscape from which Abduʾl-Bahā wrote, and in which his expected readers lived.

In The Secret of Divine Civilization (1875) Abduʾl-Bahā supports the administrative and broader social reforms of Mirzā Hosayn Khān, but looks mainly for organic reform through the efforts of Iranian intellectuals to waken and educate the masses. In this work, Abduʾl-Bahā gives virtuous and progressive Islamic clerics a leading role among these intellectuals, indeed most of his appeals are directed specifically to them. A Traveller’s Narrative (1889/90) is an authoritative statement of the broad lines of Bahā’i social and political thinking. The Art of Governance (1892/93) was written as Iran entered a prerevolutionary phase, and ideas that we recognise today as the precursors of political Islam were spreading. It sets out the principles underlying the ideal relationship between religion and politics and between the government and the people.
