This volume investigates advances in the field of legal translation both from a theoretical and practical perspective, with professional and academic insights from leading experts in the field. Part I of the collection focuses on the exploration of legal translatability from a theoretical angle. Covering fundamental issues such as equivalence in legal translation, approaches to legal translation and the interaction between judicial interpretation and legal translation, the authors offer contributions from philosophical, rhetorical, terminological and lexicographical perspectives. Part II focuses on the analysis of legal translation from a practical perspective among different jurisdictions such as China, the EU and Japan, offering multiple and pluralistic viewpoints. This book presents a collection of studies in legal translation which not only provide the latest international research findings among academics and practitioners, but also furnish us with a new approach to, and new insights into, the phenomena and nature of legal translation and legal transfer. The collection provides an invaluable reference for researchers, practitioners, academics and students specialising in law and legal translation, philosophy, sociology, linguistics and semiotics.

Keine Macht, kein Recht Spektakulärer hätte Seth Hubbard seinen Tod nicht inszenieren können. Als sein Mitarbeiter ihn eines Morgens aufgehängt an einem Baum findet, ist die Bestürzung im beschaulichen Clanton groß. Niemand hätte mit einem Freitod gerechnet. Hubbards Familie sieht das pragmatischer und ist in erster Linie an der Testamentseröffnung interessiert. Was sie nicht weiß: Kurz vor seinem Tod hat Hubbard sein Testament geändert. Alleinige Erbin ist seine schwarze Haushälterin Lettie Lang. Ein erbitterter Erbstreit beginnt . . . Als der schwer kranke Seth Hubbard seinem Leben ein Ende setzt, ahnt niemand, welche Folgen diese Tat haben wird. Hubbard, ein grimmiger Einzelgänger, blieb im Wesentlichen für sich. Versorgt von einer Haushälterin, hatte er kaum mehr Kontakt zu seiner Familie. Hubbards erwachsene Kinder absolvieren die Trauerfeier für ihren Vater denn auch wie einen Pflichtbesuch, um sich danach möglichst schnell der Testamentseröffnung zu widmen. Die Überraschung könnte kaum größer sein, als sich herausstellt, dass Hubbards Vermögen 24 Millionen Dollar umfasst. Den Löwenanteil spricht Hubbard seiner Haushälterin Lettie Lang zu. Seine Familie indes geht leer aus. In Windeseile fechten Hubbards Kinder das Testament an. Mit allen Mitteln versuchen sie Hubbards Unzurechnungsfähigkeit zu beweisen. Die Rechnung scheint aufzugehen. Bis Jack Brigance, der Anwalt an Lettie Langs Seite, Hubbards verschwundenen Bruder Ancil ausfindig macht, der eine Geschichte zu berichten hat, die einem das Blut in den Adern gefrieren lässt. Plötzlich ergibt Seth Hubbards Testament auf tragische Weise Sinn.

Iren us als johanneischer Theologe

English summary: Is Irenaeus, as he writes himself, a pupil of Polycarp of Smyrna, the pupil of John, who wrote the Fourth Gospel? How strong are the Johannine traces in his work? How does he explain the Johannine Gospel? Apart from the section related to John, this study also includes a comprehensive overview of all the biblical and non-biblical quotations and allusions made by the 2nd century father of the church and brings new and computer-aided methods (e.g. statistics, diagrams etc.) into the debate. Irenaeus is shown as a careful, clever and responsible interpreter of the Scriptures, an excellent scholar of the Corpus Johanneum and above all a prudent and solicitous bishop of his local Gallic church. German description: Der kleinasiatische Bischof Irenaus von Lyon hat sich im letzten Drittel des zweiten Jahrhunderts als Enkel und Schuler des Verfassers des Corpus Johanneum verstanden. Ausgehend davon, untersucht Bernhard Mutschler den johanneischen Charakter in den erhaltenen Werken dieses Kirchenvaters. Er vergleicht zunachst unter Einbeziehung statistischer Arbeit, tabellarischer Ubersichten und graphischer Darstellungen quantitativ alle erkennbaren Zitate und Anspielungen. Irenaus ist Bibeltheologe, deswegen uberwiegen die Bezugnahmen auf das Alte und Neue Testament bei weitem; aber auch die Anleihen aus der klassischen griechischen Literatur werden beleuchtet. Der zweite Teil des Buches wendet sich ausschliesslich dem Corpus Johanneum zu. Er setzt ein mit einer Analyse des haufig auf Johannes angewendeten Ausdrucks (der) Junger des Herrn und listet sodann alle bisher bekannten 309 johanneischen Bezuge nach einer bestimmten Kategorisierung qualifiziert auf. Diese Liste wird sodann betrachtlich erweitert.Im Ergebnis erweist sich Irenaus durchaus als johanneischer Theologe. Sein haufiger Ruckgriff auf das Corpus Johanneum hangt jedoch ebenso mit den fur die Kirche gefahrlichen Herausforderungen seiner Zeit und seiner Gemeinde im Rhonetal zusammen wie mit der in singularer Weise in Anspruch genommenen Enkelschulerschaft zum Evangelisten Johannes.
