Das Erste EinsPlus One tagesschau Poseidon is said to have struck the Acropolis with his trident in order to stake his claim to the city, and in so doing left the sphere befitting him.
Miltiades, the victor at Marathon, con- demned, of his wounds; Themistocles, triumphant at Salamis, banished, by suicide, [etc. Auflage , For these struggles between Orient and Occident [des Mor- gen- und Abendlandes] are not a quotidian campaign of conquest; instead, they are a dispute of the deepest and most inward human interests. At Marathon und Thermopylae, at Salamis and Plataea, the Greeks not only subdued the armies of Darius and Xerxes, they won for Europe the victory of the spirit, of liberty, the primacy of education, for which we, those who follow them so much later, owe them no lesser gratitude than did their own descendants […].
The new Olympic idea seeks to pro- mote peace and reconciliation among peoples, hence the difficulties regularly caused when a host state proves guilty of despotism. The mile race is one event which re- peatedly recalls this spirit of freedom; it appears to have taken its place alongside the historical tradition as the most abundant living source of the Marathon myth.
How can we prevent wars? In the spirit of the intercultural turn, textbooks were now taking a primarily value- neutral approach to Persian culture. But this was exactly what the Greeks in Asia Minor had done, in his view, when in BCE they re- volted, for reasons he did not understand, led by the city of Miletus. It was unthinkable to the Persian king that he might allow these quarrelsome Greeks to continue with these activities.
Leading historians assume a total of 90, men, of whom naval forces and baggage aside 25, were foot soldiers and mounted.
Meier, Athen, It is barely imaginable that the Greek resisters would have been able to mobilise anywhere near this number. There is not a single G8 textbook that continues to claim the Athenians saved Europe with their victories.
Horizonte makes no mention of them. This by-the-by remark is indicative of the tenacity of myths; they do not simply fade away without trace. Odo Marquard goes so far as to deem them — relatively - immor- tal. No pupil could be blamed for wondering at this juncture why they are being called upon to learn about these matters. Does it taste sweet, or not? You have no idea!
If you did, you would be advising us to fight in its cause, not with spears, but with battleaxes! It 41 Ibid. Buchner, , Name it. Such critique, were it to take place, would make for a real intercultural teaching moment in a way the task set does not. Europe saved in the west? Proceeding from this base, they undertook numerous raids across the region south of the Loire as far as Luxeuil, entering an intermittent alliance with the Duke of Aquitaine against Franconia, which at that time was gaining in strength.
In , the Moors, led on one of these raids by Abderrahman and heading towards the rich pilgrim destination at the grave of St Martin of Tours, were confronted a short distance from the city by the Frankish major domus Charles Martel at the head of a large army.
Leopold von Ranke, Weltgeschichte [—], Bd. If Charles Martel had lost the battle as decisively as he in fact won it, the Frankish would have found themselves in an acutely difficult situation. As it was, the Frankish triumph was not unexpected to the victors; Charles, experienced in battle tactics and unable to afford a defeat, took the time — several days — to accurate- ly assess his adversary. Jahrhunderts, Berlin: edition q, , — Der Beginn karolingischer Herrschaft. Stuttgart: Kohlhammer, , Nineteenth-century German history textbooks, as in the case of Marathon and Salamis, perpetuate a European myth of deliverance in relation to these events, declaring them to have saved not only Franco- nia, but indeed Europe and the West.
Much the same properties attributed to the Per- sians reoccur here in relation to the Arabs.
Auctores antiquis- simi, vol. Scriptores 8, Hanover: Hahnsche Buchhandlung, , —, f. Paris: Poussielgue, , The illustrations were modelled on paintings from the gal- leries at Versailles. Untertertia, Berlin: Nicolai, , Theil 2, Leipzig: Ernst Fleischer, 2nd edition , Ever since then, Charles has been acclaimed as a great hero of Christendom, and he has been given the laudable name of Martel or Hammer, because he unleashed crushing blows on the barbarians at Tours as if with the hammer of God.
Yet here, too, the myth appears to die hard; in many instances, its core, cut off from its significance and meaning, seems to have simply been retained, as if textbook authors were reluctant to part with it, and as if it were self-explanatory. In the year he triumphed at Poitiers over Muslim armies of Arabs who had attacked the kingdom from the south. Welter ed. Beleze, A. Other history textbooks imply that the Arabs were engaged, not in a campaign of conquest, but in a relatively innocuous raid — which may make pupils wonder why Charles Martel sought to stop them with all the forces at his disposal.
In a display of borderline self- abnegation, some material discusses the battle in virtually the same breath as lauding the superiority of Arab culture. Evidencing a shift in sympathies from the Frankish power to Arab culture, Forum Geschichte asserts: The expansion of Arab dominion came to a standstill in , when Frankish armies, led by Charles Martel, beat […] the Saracens. The major driver of this was Islamic culture, which was more ad- vanced than Occidental [culture] in many areas of philosophy, medicine, astronomy and mathe- matics.
Books written specifi- cally for integrated history and geography appear to be leading the way in dropping the topic. The Europeans saw this as the Christian Occident having been saved from the Muslims.
It does, however, occur in a text- book for non-selective secondary schools in the state of Hesse, Geschichte entdecken, published by C. Buchner in Defining Charles Martel as effectively the occupying power turns the tables completely, implicit- ly dubbing the Carolingians imperialists whose aggressive striving for expansion was to be repudiated.
What rationale does he present for his evalua- taille de Poitiers. All they are required to do here is to reiterate in silent awe an opinion contrasting with previous in- terpretations which were at least of comprehensible significance.
It may be that the topic of Charles Martel is too Germanocentric for the present zeit- geist, while the Athenians, heroes of Marathon and Salamis, were at least democrats and, thanks to Herodotus, radiant with the nimbus of Homeric epic, placing them be- yond suspicion in the category of the classics. With the demise of imperialism and colonialism, and particularly with the rise of globalisation, increased immigration of Muslims, and Islamist terrorism targeting Europe and the West, Europe has found itself faced with a task unparalleled in history thus far, that of urn:nbn:de Eckert.
