Parzival by Wolfram( Book )
23 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 87 libraries worldwide
"Parzival is a major medieval German epic poem attributed to the poet Wolfram von Eschenbach, written in the Middle High German language. The poem is commonly dated circa the first quarter of the 13th century. The poem is, in part, an adaptation of Chretien de Troyes? Perceval, the Story of the Grail and mainly centers on the Arthurian hero Parzival (Percival in English) and his long quest for the Holy Grail, following his initial failure to achieve it. A long middle section is devoted to Parzival's friend Gawan and his adventures defending himself from a false murder charge and winning the hand of the maiden Orgeluse. The poem continues to be read in Middle High German and translated into modern languages around the world. Among the most striking elements of the text are the scope of its plot and its emphasis on the virtues of compassion and spiritual questioning." (Nov. 8, 2010)

The first European revolution, c. 970-1215 by R. I Moore( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in German and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"This book provides a radical reassessment of Europe from the late tenth to the early thirteenth centuries. Professor Moore argues that the period witnessed the first true 'revolution' in European society, characterized by transformations in the economy, in family structures, and in the sources of power and the means by which it was exercised. Together these changes brought into being for the first time an autonomous city-supporting civilization in non-Mediterranean Europe. The circumstances and outcome of this transformation, he demonstrates, not only shaped medieval and modern Europe but established enduring and fundamental characteristics which differentiated Europe from other world civilizations."

Felicity Gallant und das steinerne Herz by M. L Welsh( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
Felicity Gallant erlebt erneut eine abenteuerliche Geschichte, als sich überall in ihrem Städtchen feiner Sand ausbreitet, Klippen ins Meer rutschen und durch gefährliche Erdbewegungen Gebäude beschädigt werden. Ausserdem werden die Bewohner von Wellow von Albträumen geplagt. Mithilfe ihrer Freunde und der Bibliothekarin kommt sie der Erdhexe Terre auf die Spur, die alle Urgeschichten vernichten will. Aber erst als Felicity den Blutstein findet, können alle sonderbaren Ereignisse gestoppt werden. - Die Fortsetzung von "Felicity Gallant und das Auge des Sturms" ist von Melanie Welsh wieder fantasievoll umgesetzt. Die Handlung ist einfallsreich erzählt und fesselt durch spannende Szenen. Ohne den 1. Band gut verständlich und auch wegen der ungewöhnlichen Geschichte gerne breit empfohlen. Ab 12
