This thought-provoking collection of magical texts from ancient Egypt shows the exotic rituals, esoteric healing practices, and incantatory and supernatural dimensions that flowered in early Christianity. These remarkable Christian magical texts include curses, spells of protection from "headless powers" and evil spirits, spells invoking thunderous powers, descriptions of fire baptism, and even recipes from a magical "cookbook." Virtually all the texts are by Coptic Christians, and they date from about the 1st-12th centuries of the common era, with the majority from late antiquity. By placing these rarely seen texts in historical context and discussing their significance, the authors explore the place of healing, prayer, miracles, and magic in the early Christian experience, and expand our understanding of Christianity and Gnosticism as a vital folk religion.

Having staked his claim as a master of epic fantasy with The Ring of Five Dragons, Eric Van Lustbader now returns to his world of Kundala to unearth new riches of wonder and excitement in this second volume of The Pearl saga. With the help of her friends, Riane, the prophesied redeemer known as the Dar Sala-at, saved Kundala from annihilation, preserving natives and V'ornn invaders alike. Together, the companions avenged terrible crimes and secured the Ring of Five Dragons, but their struggles have only just begun. The Ring averted doomsday, yet it did not open the magical Storehouse Door as expected. That sorcerous treasury remains sealed because of the spell cast by Giyan and her sister. A spell to migrate Annon Ashera's male V'ornn psyche into Riane's dying Kundalan female body. By combining them into a single being, it saved them both and fulfilled the prophecy that the Dar Sala-at would be "born at both ends of the cosmos." But the spell also breached the Abyss, releasing daemons who could wreak havoc on Kundala. The daemons were imprisoned there aeons ago by the Goddess Miina. Now the fiends must be vanquished, not only so the quest for the Pearl can continue, but to save Giyan, who has been possessed by the archdaemon Horolaggia. Their only hope is the fabled Veil of A Thousand Tears. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Barrili, in questo romanzo pubblicato nel 1905, prendendo spunto da un episodio narrato da Giorgio Vasari, ci narra la vicenda del pittore Spinello Spinelli (detto Spinello Aretino). Non spaventi n� l'ambientazione trecentesca n� l'aria da romanzo storico (essendo alcuni personaggi esistiti realmente, sebbene, poi, ci� che viene messo in scena sia in gran parte frutto della fantasia dell'autore) e non spaventino neppure i discorsi sull'arte messi in bocca ai personaggi o allo stesso narratore: l'intreccio � condotto brillantemente con ben dosati colpi di scena che danno slancio al romanzo, con uno stile agile, senza paludamenti. Il narratore poi, sebbene sia del tipo "onniscente", con il suo rivolgersi direttamente ai lettori diventa un personaggio egli stesso, quasi che fosse stato pensato proprio per una lettura ad alta voce.First Page:BIBLIOTECA AMENAAD UNA LIRA IL VOLUME15 Ottobre 1905.

As our economy and our society grow increasingly dependent on cyberspace we are only just beginning to understand how vulnerable that dependency makes us to catastrophic failure. This book clarifies shows how the security methods we have designed for the physical world are futile in cyberspace. If we want effective cybersecurity we need to understand the real and different nature of cyberspace, and the decision makers and security professionals have to understand the laws and rules of cyberspace and why and how they work in cybersecurity. Victor Sheymov's comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach suggests a fundamentally new approach to security in cyberspace, using methods native to cyberspace, and his book lays out a foundation for an effective, feasible and reliable cybersecurity technology. This Revised Edition (November, 2013) book consists of four parts. Part I, Security, is a review of access security in the world of our physical space. This review shows the reasons why our efforts in access security historically have been reasonably effective. Part II, Cyberspace, examines the specific qualities of cyberspace. It explains the fundamental differences between physical and cyberspace, and how these differences are relevant to cybersecurity. Part III, Cybersecurity, shows that methods used in computer security for the last quarter of a century are fundamentally alien to cyberspace. It explains why our efforts to secure cyberspace so far have been completely ineffective. It introduces new approaches to cybersecurity based on methods that are native to cyberspace that can provide real security in cyberspace, as well as protect our critical infrastructure. The VCC method of communications enables building cybersecurity systems that render hacking attacks computationally infeasible. Furthermore, this method does not require intrusions in customer's information and systems. It provides security without violating customer's privacy or civil liberties. Part IV, just added, Coherent Defense of Large Sovereign Cyber Systems, analyzes the challenges of increased size, the protective role of Government, argues that cyber security does not require encroaching on privacy, that the Variable Cyber Coordinates (VCC) technology provides crucial data processing advantage, and stresses that active monitoring of attackers is more effective than passive monitoring of defenders.
