  • Skorupki tradycji. Portret „elastycznego hindusa”

    • Authors: Marcin Ciemniewski
      Pages: 6 - 22
      Abstract: Stereotypically India is seen as a very spiritual country. The same  applies to Indians, especially Hindus. The main aim of this article is  to answer the question whether the spirituality of Hindus and their  perception of tradition have changed or have taken a new form under the influence of the rapidly changing times. This article examines the ways of looking at tradition by modern Hindus – especially those who represent the Indian middle class – by reading an one-act play The Eggshells (A !ekechilke) by Mohan Rakesh and an essay by Sudhir Kakar and Katharina Kakar entitled The Flexible Hindu.

  • Tarkan Hatun (ok. 1055-1094). Cersei Lannister seldżuckiego dworu

    • Authors: Marcin Gajec
      Pages: 23 - 38
      Abstract: Tarkan Khatun was definitely one of the most powerful figures at the Seljuk court by the end of the 11th century. Born in an eminent Karakhanid house, the Turkish princess got down in the history as a talented politician and a skillful manipulator. She gained major power, surrounded herself with talented and ambitious advisors and, furthermore, she challenged the mighty vizier Nizam Al-Mulk. Tarkan’s involvement in organizing the assassination of an old advisor of her husband sultan Malikshah still remains quite mysterious and questionable, however some sources connect her to this affair. Tarkan lost three of her four children. Her two sons, Dawud and Ahmad, died at a young age. Her daughter, Mahmalak, has wed the Abbasid Caliph Al Muqtadi but this unhappy marriage culminated in a premature death of the young princess. No wonder that later on Tarkan gave all of her attention and energy to ensure safety and succession of her youngest son, Mahmud,. Consequently, in 1092, after the mysterious death of her husband, she took part in “a game of thrones” of Great Seljuks which, as a result, plunged the whole Near East into chaos for the next three years. Her struggles, which were not always successful, caused Tarkan’s grief. Ambitious Karakhanid succumbed to illness - the same one that later took away her last son. However, Tarkan was ahead of her times. The status that she has gained in the misogynistic society of the Muslim East definitely deserves our respect and appreciation.

  • Niezgoda między szkołami gramatycznymi z Al-Basry i Al-Kufy na podstawie
           sporu o etymologię słowa ism

    • Authors: Jacek Grad
      Pages: 39 - 51
      Abstract: When it comes to Basran and Kufan grammarians, there is no dearth of studies, but nevertheless we are mostly left with rather general statements concerning the nature of both schools of Arab grammatical thought. In this article, after a short summary of the current state of research, an extract from a 12th century compilation of disputes between Basran and Kufan grammarians - Al-Insaf f i masa"il al-hilaf bayna al-basriyyin wa-al-kufiyyin by Ibn al-Anbari - is put under examination. The discussed extract is a chapter dedicated to the disagreement on the etymology of the word ism and it gives us a worthwhile overview on various aspects of medieval Arabic grammatical thought, and helps us understand the nature of the conflict between the two competing schools.

  • Amazonki - mit czy reminiscencja zwyczajów koczowników

    • Authors: Paweł Janik
      Pages: 61 - 76
      Abstract: There is evidence (archaeological, historical, linguistic, iconographic, ethnological and other mentioned in this article) to show that the formation of the myth of the Amazons could be a result of observations of habits of Iranian nomads who used to live in the areas of the northern coast of the Black Sea and Central Asia in Antiquity. Some datum indicates that women from these communities (as in many other groups of nomads) had a much higher social status than in many settled communities such as the ancient Greeks and Romans. Women in the Iranianspeaking nomadic communities were likely to participate in hunting and, to some limited extent, in fighting. In addition, some of them might have become the heads o f these groups as queens (that is not as wives of kings but as independent rulers). All o f it influenced the imagination of people from Greek culture who had met the nomads. Stories about these warrior women spread into Greek ecumene, increasingly evolving and subject to distortion, thus affecting the myth of the Amazons. The Amazons in Greek mythology and art often have nomadic features - they ride on horseback, wear bows and “Scythian” costumes and weapons. Tales of warlike women did not only contribute to the mythology of the ancient world, but they were inherited by Turkic-speaking groups and are still present in the culture of Iran.

  • Gdy cesarzowa piła herbatę... Historia chińskiego jedwabiu od neolitu
           do czasów panowania dynastii Tang

    • Authors: Dominika Kossowska-Janik
      Pages: 93 - 104
      Abstract: Chinese silk has a long history. The sericulture began in Neolithic times. Before the Western Zhou period (1600-1046 BC) the most popular textiles were plain weaved (juan) and gauzes (sha and luo). During the kingship of the Zhou dynasty (Western and Eastern) new types of textiles began to be woven, for example: pseudo-damasks (qi and han qi) and warp faced compound tabby (jin). The most beautiful four-color, and five-color jin fabrics were woven in Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD). In this period China came in contact with the Western world. It was the beginning of the so-called Silk Road. Weaving technique still flourished during the next periods. The first samit textiles (often decorated with Persian motives) were weaved during the Tang dynasty. The sericulture was a ritual practiced in the common households and royal courts. The silkworm had its own temples and goddess.

  • Instytucje muzyczne w starożytnych Chinach

    • Authors: Hanna Kupś
      Pages: 105 - 122
      Abstract: Since mythological times, music was considered to be a vital part of Chinese culture. Its very high social standing, deeply rooted in Confucian philosophy, resulted in the abundance of musical administration, for example, the first known musical institution was The Great Office of Music (M Dàsiyuè)of the Zhou dynasty which was re sponsible for teaching ritual and music; The Music Bureau (M Yuèfu)of the Qin and Han dynasty that collected and edited musical pieces, and numerous agencies under court of Tang or its Shrine of Imperial Sacrifices (Tàichângsî) managing various tasks, from education to musical performances. In the Song dynasty, musical offices followed the tradition of their predecessors, but on a much smaller scale. The article aims to describe musical institutions of the ancient Chinese court and determine whether they can be described as a musical bureaucracy. The paper is divided into three main parts: the first outlines the term “bureaucracy” in accordance to both lexical and Max Weber’s definitions; the second presents the main offices that dealt with music and its evolution; the third part functions as the conclusion, the author compares the main characteristic of musical agencies with the meaning of the term bureaucracy.

  • Sytuacja prawna muzułmanów w XIX-wiecznym Imperium Rosyjskim

    • Authors: Paweł Ludwiczak
      Pages: 123 - 133
      Abstract: The article discusses legal situation of the Muslim community under the legislation of the Russian Empire’s central governorates in the 19 th century. Regulations in force within that territory were similar to those applied in other governorates of the Imperial Russia. This research is of a general nature due to the fact that detailed elaboration on Muslims’ situation which would include their legal, civil and political limitations could become an extensive monograph, especially if one would take into consideration that different parts of the Russian territory implemented its own legal solutions enforced by the contemporary social and political situation.

  • Kariki Jogijara i wedyjska tradycja wznoszenia ołtarzy ofiarnych w

    • Authors: Olga Nowicka
      Pages: 133 - 144
      Abstract: The article concerns a hitherto little known Sanskrit text called Karikas of Yogiyar – a medieval commentary to Baudhayanaśulvasutra (ca. 5th century BC). The text in question deals with the  construction of the Vedic altars specific to the Keralan sacrificial tradition. It is attributed to the ascetic Yogiyar from the village Taikkat Mana (Edappal), who probably lived around 16th or 17th century.  Karikas of Yogiyar are presumably the only known independent śulvasutra commentary in Sanskrit of the post-Vedic period.
