Krefeld. Die Bewohner des kulturhistorischen Kleinods fühlen sich "ständigen Touristenströmen ausgeliefert" und bitten auf einem Schild, ihre Privatsphäre zu achten. Zuwiderhandelnde werden zurechtgewiesen. Von Jochen Lenzen Das ehemalige, 1398 hinter der Pfarrkirche St. Cyriakus errichtete Frauenkloster - heute als Klausur bekannt - ist mit seinen historischen Baulichkeiten und reizenden kleinen Gärtchen eines der attraktivsten Kulturdenkmäler, die Krefeld zu bieten hat.

Just who was the 11th-century Persian royal poet Manuchehri Damghani referring to when he wrote this: ‘We’re men of drinking, feasting and singing. Hurray for the rebab [stringed instrument], kebab and wine!’? He was describing the cultured, if indulgent, lives of his Seljuq and Turkish rulers whose empire stretched – with periodic fragility – from the Mediterranean eastwards the whole way across today’s troubled region of Turkey, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond to the borders of China. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s show ‘Court and Cosmos: The Great Age of the Seljuqs’ brings to life that little-known world and is timely indeed. As the museum’s director Tom Campbell writes in the catalogue preface, the show ‘sheds light on o...

Women have had a long history of triumphs and disappointments and though much of that history has been of oppression, the women of the Middle Ages often experienced positions of power and influence. This article is the second in a series to focus on some of these famous women. Medieval women and power and or influence The first question to ask is how did these women come to power when women of later eras seemed to lose that status in history? There were several reasons. They were married to important men, they became the mothers of future heirs to royal and social dynasties, they were religious inspirations in their time, or occasionally they did rise to power on their own accord.

Body: 
800 Jews were brutally massacred in the city of Worms, Germany on 18th May, 1096. The horrific event was just one in a series of brutal anti-Semitic pogroms in France and Germany during the First Crusade. The massacre reveals the fragile control held by church and political figures during the Middle Ages. Pope Urban II had called the First Crusade in December 1095. It came in response to stories filtering through Europe that Christian pilgrims to Jerusalem were the victims of attacks by the Seljuk Empire that had come to occupy all of Asia Minor. Launched to recapture the Holy Land from the Muslim Seljuks and thus guarantee the safe passage of European Christian pilgrims to the Middle East’s Holy Sites, the First Crusade quickly exploded...

The rare sepulchral pewter chalice and paten (small plate used to hold Eucharistic bread) dating from the 13th century were found in a tomb, reputed to have links to the de Brito family, when the church was rebuilt in...
