By Andrzej Sapkowski

Ciri, Prinzessin von Cintra und Schützling des Hexers Geralt von Riva, ist auf geheimnisvolle Weise in eine fremde Welt versetzt worden. Dort trifft sie auf einen jungen Ritter namens Galahad, der sie für die Dame vom See hält und dem sie ihre Geschichte erzählt: Die Kriege und Machtkämpfe, die seit Langem tobten, haben ihren Höhepunkt erreicht. Vilgefortz mit seinen Helfershelfern stellt sich zur Schlacht, bei der viele von Geralts Gefährten ihr Leben lassen müssen. Und es droht neue Gefahr in Gestalt des Kaisers Emhyr von Nilfgaard. Er wird von derselben uralten Prophezeiung geleitet, die auch das Handeln von Vilgefortz und Ciri bestimmte. Wiewohl im Besitz überwältigender Übermacht, scheut Emhyr bei der Konfrontation mit Geralt und Ciri vor der letzten Konsequenz zurück: Denn mit Ciri verbindet ihn mehr als nur die alte Weissagung...

Britons in Anglo-Saxon England

The variety of local Britons, and their position, in Anglo-Saxon England has been hotly debated for generations; the English have been noticeable as Germanic within the 19th century, however the 20th observed a reinvention of the German 'past'. this day, the scholarly group is as deeply divided as ever at the factor: place-name experts have continually most well liked minimalist interpretations, privileging migration from Germany, whereas different disciplinary teams were much less united of their perspectives, with many archaeologists and historians viewing the British presence, in all likelihood not less than, as numerically major or perhaps dominant.

Mainz] rather than to our enemies. In order to be militarily effective in Lotharingia, Bruno needed to be able to raise an effective fighting force, and the estates of the archbishopric of Cologne by themselves could certainly not suffice for this. Bruno had many episcopal and abbatial protégés in Lotharingia, but there were problems about using the resources of their churches. ¹⁰² One could not raise fighting men on one’s reputation for holiness alone! Any such limitations on the power of Bruno’s protégés in Lotharingian dioceses, such as Nightingale has brought out,¹⁰³ were also limitations to Bruno’s own influence.

From documentary evidence, we know that in 940 Bruno became chancellor. For this and its significance, see Laudage, Otto der Grosse, 105–7. ³⁹ Ruotger, c. 5, p. 7, ll. 14–15. 12 Bruno of Cologne and Ruotger’s Life stress on the accord of king and clergy and laity of Cologne. ⁴⁰ Ruotger may have shown a streak of disingenuousness here, since virtually from the start the position of archbishop of Cologne was held by Bruno with the dukedom of Lotharingia, Cologne being on the left bank of the Rhine and hence itself within Lotharingia.

He wrote within four years of Bruno’s death, for an audience (which included bishops) of those who knew him well, on the commission of Folcmar, Bruno’s successor as archbishop and previously administrator of the cathedral under him. ⁴⁷ If the main reason why he was chosen for the task was his all-round learning—biblical, classical, and patristic—and his powerful style of writing, it is at the same time unlikely that he got his facts wrong to any significant degree. Where we can control what he says from an independent source, it supports Ruotger’s picture.
