    1. consoling herself, however, with the discovery, which her keen eye soon made, that the lace on Mrs. Thorpe’s pelisse was not half so handsome as that on her own.

      The pelisse, a popular garment most recently revived through the iconic yellow model worn by Ana Taylor-Joy in Autumn de Wilde’s Emma (2020), might be included as a footnote in the twin history of fashion and ecological degradation.

      By donning a pelisse, Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Thorpe, whatever their rivalries, were both at the cusp of early nineteenth-century fashion. Austen herself owned at least two pelisses, as historian Hilary Davidson has demonstrated. The pelisse, an overdress, was developed partly in response to the new Empire-period silhouette and partly due the “muslin disease” or influenza that ailed young women wearing fashionable lightweight fabrics in freezing weather.

      In the colder months, pelisses could be lined with fur, so Mrs. Allen’s observation that Mrs. Thorpe’s lace is not as handsome would indicate that this scene takes place in the warmer months. The pelisse’s popularity led it to replace the fur cloaks of the earlier eighteenth century. Soon, though, pelisses themselves would be replaced with fur coats, which gained popularity throughout the nineteenth century, reaching a high point in the 1850s. Their popularity was in large part due to new methods of processing fur, which made it more supple (Fashioned 86). The consumption of fur and sealskin jackets, as well as feathers and cotton, throughout the period would lead to the devastation (e.g., India’s cotton industry) of ecosystems (71).

      As we read these lines, then, we are reminded, of Austen’s critical eye for the consumer habits of her time. Although her critique here pertains to petty fashion rivalry, when reading about fashion items in her novels, we might find ourselves considering not only how little our fashion rivalries have changed but also how fashion and environmental degradation are historically linked.

      For more on the pelisse, the spencer, and muslin, head over to Austenprose to read Hilary Davidson's post on Regency fashion in Emma (2020).

    1. Ich finde die Absicht des Autors für Chronik hier etwas unvollständig. Die beschriebene Absichts ist mE die Absicht Gottes. Für die Absicht des menschlichen Autors dieses Buches müsste man noch etwas mehr Hintergrundinformationen sammeln: Wann und Wer verfasst die Chroniken? An welche Zuhörerschaft? Ich weiß nicht, ob das das Potential hat, in die (zu) textkritische Betrachtung einzusteigen oder ob es für den Einstieg zu viel wird, aber sind meine spontanten Gedanken dazu. Bei einem Brief im NT ist es oft klarer bzgl. Autor und Absicht.

    1. Unten bei Übingen: Wie wäre es hier einen Link auf https://www.bibelwissenschaft.de/wibilex/das-bibellexikon/lexikon zu setzen, für die, die kein Bibellexikon zur Hand haben. Nur den Eintrag zum Kanon (NT) habe ich da nicht auf die Schnelle gefunden ...

    2. Hallo. Danke euch für die gute Arbeit. Ihr habt aufgefordert zu Anmerkungen und Verbesserungsvorschlägen über dieses tool... also los:

      Im Text bei Einheit 1, Abschnitt 3 werden Rut, Klagelieder und Ester nicht direkt erwähnt. Entweder es könnte ein Absatz dazukommen oder die Bücher in die Klammern unter Schriften etc. mit vermerkt werden um vollständig zu sein.

    1. North West Company

      The North West Company (NWC) was founded in 1779 in Montreal, Canada by a group of men from Scotland (The North West Company). The company was created in competition with the already established Hudson Bay Company (HBC). Both companies were fur traders, but the NWC had swift, lightweight boats that allowed them to travel faster than the HBC and the NWC became the leading fur trading company. The success of the NWC relied on merchant partners, agents, voyageurs, and aboriginal trappers. In 1821, NWC and HBC combined resources and became The Hudson’s Bay Company (The Company), with a total of 173 fur trading posts. This merger allowed Britain to retain control over the western provinces of Canada. In 1881, The Company moved toward agriculture and land and transportation development. In 1935, radiotelephone technology became available and The Company received increasing demand from a larger service region. This led to a period of technological advancement. In 1943, Northern Canada was open and many migrated to the area in search of wealth and opportunity. The Company opened community based retail stores in an effort to increase profit and namesake. As advertisements became abundant, the demand for retail stores increased. In 1953, The Company began trading Inuit art at its regional trading posts, which introduced a new art form. In 1987, the Northern trading posts, entitled the Northern Stores Division, were purchased and renamed The North West Company. A complete timeline of the history of the North West Company can be found below.
