No one is so intimately acquainted with Schleiermacher's Christian Ethics material or with the 1821-1822 first edition of his companion volume, Christian Faith, than Hermann Peiter. The present volume is a collection of Peiter's nineteen essays and thirty reviews. Extensive English summaries are offered for all this material, and an English version for four of the essays. Professor Peiter's summary of this volume reads as follows: This book treats of praxis in the Christian life and of Christian responsibility for the world we have in common. The following, however, forms a background for these considerations. Schleiermacher reminds his Christian brethren, who often deck themselves out with alien, borrowed plumes from morals and metaphysics, of their actual theme, that of religion, which he also designates as a kind or mode of faith. Like Luther, he also turns against both the practical misconception that considers faith itself to be a good work and the theoretical misconception that faith is a product of thinking, a theory. Whether a practitioner thinks to give thanks for one's own work or whether a theoretician hopes to find final fulfillment and justification in one's range of metaphysical ideas amounts to the same thing. Faith is the courage to be (Paul Tillich). For Schleiermacher, to want to have speculation (thus, metaphysics) and praxis without religion is the nonsalutary intention of Prometheus, who faintheartedly stole what he could have expected to possess in restful security. If taken seriously, the 'gods'-to use that pagan expression for once-are that nature to which a human being belongs. Each human being is their possession. When one steals what the gods have, one steals oneself, can thank oneself for a robbery. For a gift that is stolen, one cannot possibly be thankful. Only a pure gift awakens true joy. A human being has the chance to receive the gift that one is or is not (in case it is stolen) not from a thief but from religion. Thanks to one's birth, both physical and spiritual, one gains oneself and has oneself. To steal means to take away, to depreciate. In contrast, whoever has oneself from elsewhere is no longer extracted from oneself or from the one to whom one belongs.

Eine wichtige Voraussetzung fur das Verstandnis von historischen und kulturellen Prozessen bildet die Untersuchung ihrer naturlichen Umwelt, denn bereits mit dem fruhesten Auftreten des Menschen entsteht ein Beziehungsgefl echt, das eine stringente Trennung von Naturraum und Kulturraum obsolet werden lasst. Der Sammelband zeigt in Fallbeispielen die Moglichkeiten zur Analyse derartiger historischer Mensch-Umwelt-Gefl echte auf. Neben grundsatzlichen methodischen Erwagungen zur Siedlungsarchaologie wird die Rekonstruktion der Umwelt und ihrer Fauna und Flora ebenso behandelt wie dorfl iche Okonomien, Wasserversorgung und Wasserbau. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf Beispielen im ostlichen Mittelmeerbereich, fur die Problematik von Flussveranderungen wird aber auch der Rhein einbezogen. Neben der Geographie, der Palaobotanik und der Archaologie sind so auch die Alte Geschichte und die Altorientalistik in Beitragen vertreten und zeigen damit, auf welch vielfaltige Weise gemeinsame Fragestellungen zum Verhaltnis des Menschen zu seiner Umwelt bearbeitet werden konnen.
