Angels, devils, and demons have played a significant role ever since the emergence of religious beliefs. As messengers from other worlds, be they harbingers of good news or tempters, they touch the fundamental hopes and fears of every human being while at the same time depicting the eternal battle of good and evil. In Christian art, angels and devils, with their human-like aspects allied with their angelic or devilish nature, were a favorite theme of painters and sculptors, as their imagination was set free to create artworks that fascinate in every respect, including masterpieces like “The Last Judgement” by Giotto di Bondone, “The Annunciation” by Leonardo da Vinci, “The Temptation of Saint Anthony” by Hieronymus Bosch, or “The Gates of Hell” by Auguste Rodin, to name but a few. Angelus & Diabolus is the first publication of its kind to offer a visually stunning collection of the most beautiful and breath-taking pieces of art reflecting this exciting contrast between Heaven and Hell. Seven comprehensive chapters examine the topic from various angles like the nature, the duties and the hierarchy of angels, the downfall of sinful angels, angelic choirs, the pain of hell, imaginations of the end of the world, or the manifestations of heaven. Substantial texts by art historian Dr. Maria-Christina Boerner are accompanied by striking pictures by photographer Achim Bednorz, some of which show rarely seen details and make otherwise hidden elements accessible to the beholder. This tome comprises an unprecedented compilation of this timeless subject.

Potatoes are synonymous for simple, inexpensive, and unfailingly delicious food. Since its introduction to Europe in the 16th century, the humble root vegetable has conquered all continents and is, in many countries, the most used and favorite food ingredient. Its taste appeals to each of us. The countless possibilities of cooking them contributed to developing national dishes based on potatoes, which are part of each country s heritage and pride. Yet potatoes are more than a banal and all-too-basic vegetable. This book takes you from the origins of the tuberous in Peru, where it was a constitutive part of the Inka civilization, to the royal tables in Europe, whence the potatoes became fashionable food for the rich and the poor alike."
