The Silent Masters

Latin Literature and Its Censors in the High Middle Ages

In the tension between competing ideas of authority and the urge to literary experiment, writers of the High Middle Ages produced some of their most distinctive achievements. This book examines these themes in the high culture of Western Europe during the eleventh and twelfth centuries, showing how the intimate links between the writer and the censor, the inquisitor and the intellectual developed from metaphors, at the beginning of the period, to institutions at its end. All Latin texts--from Peter Abelard to Bernard of Clairvaux, from the Archpoet to John of Salisbury and Alan of Lille--are translated into English, and discussed both in terms of their literary qualities and in relation to the cultural history of the High Middle Ages. Not a proto-Renaissance but part of a continuity that reached into the Reformation, the eleventh and twelfth centuries witnessed a transformation of the writer's role. With a combination of literary, philological, and historical methods, Peter Godman sets the work of major intellectuals during this period in a new light.

Tea . . . a beverage brewed from the fermented dried leaves of the shrub Camelli sinensis and imbibed by all the great civilizations in the galaxy's history; a source of refreshment, stimulation, and, above all else, of moral fiber—without which the British Space Empire must surely crumble to leave Earth at the mercy of its enemies. Sixty percent of the Empire's tea is grown on one world—Urn, principal planet of the Didcot system. If Earth is to keep fighting, the tea must flow! When a crazed cult leader overthrows the government of Urn, Isambard Smith and his vaguely competent crew find themselves saddled with new allies—a legion of tea-obsessed nomads, an overly-civilized alien horde. and a commando unit so elite that it has only five members. Only together can they defeat the self-proclaimed God Emperor of Didcot and confront the true power behind the coup—the sinister legions of the Ghast Empire and Smith's old enemy, Commander 462.

After writing his first book (How I Turned $1,000 into Five Million in Real Estate in My Spare Time), William Nickerson went on book tours to stores, radio and TV show explaining his new concept of the average person investing in real estate. This second book in the form of questions and answers is his response to the hundreds and thousands of questions people asked on the book tours and seminars that he gave. Nickerson crossed the country dozen of times, studying real estate developments, checking trends, and updating his information.

Says Nickerson, "These current examples of success prove over and over how real estate investment can turn small nest eggs into large fortunes." Nickerson shows how his techniques work in different parts of the country. He tells how to appraise property values no matter where you live. Nickerson answers the following questions among others: Where is the best place to invest? How can I tell a good deal from a bad one? Can a property be worth more than the listed price? What is the riskiest property? Where can I make advantageous trades? When is a building worth remodeling? How can I get 100% financing? How does a tax free exchange work?
