This study, produced by the well regarded geographer Wilhelm Tomaschek, considers the topography of Asia Minor during a period of intense historical interest, the era spanning the Crusades. The coastal regions of Turkey and the routes of the Crusades set the parameters for this study. Included in this study are a brief overview of the island settlements, various standard roads taken, and regional descriptions. The routes of the first and second crusades, the return track of Henry III, and the path of the third crusade are all described. Useful for historians of the Middle Ages and especially those interested in the events surrounding the use of Asia Minor as a bridge to the distant lands of the Holy Land, this brief examination will retain its value. Presenting Turkey as it was seen during the Ottoman period, this topographical history will also appeal to historians of the final days of the empire.

Wilhelm Tomaschek (1841-1901) was a geographer from the region of Austria and the Czech Republic as well as an Orientalist. He taught at the Universities of Graz and Vienna.

The Life & Legend of the Vilna Ger Tzedek Count Walenty Potocki

ISBN: 1-59333-097-9
Walenty Potocki was a young Polish nobleman who abandoned wealth, power, and unlimited worldly prospects to convert to new religion - Judaism. Potocki was betrayed by a member of the religious community he embraced and burned at the stake by the Church he left behind in 1749. This book examines eleven versions of this remarkable man’s story and the heated, previously unpublished, correspondence between the Potocki clan and one of his early biographers. Noble Soul is the record of one man’s defining faith, and of the compelling human need for personal spiritual fulfillment.
