Auf Götterpfaden über den Pazifik. Die Geschichte der by Michael H. Dietrich

By Michael H. Dietrich

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Australien, Ozeanien, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Als im Jahr 1864 der Laienbruder Eugen Eyraud auf der Osterinsel hölzerne Tafeln mit seltsamen Hieroglyphen fand, battle das eine große Sensation. guy vermutete von Anfang an darin eine Schrift, die bisher im gesamten pazifischen Raum nicht bekannt struggle. Alle Versuche, diese Zeichen zu entziffern scheiterten, weil selbst die Osterinsulaner keine sachdienlichen Angaben mehr zur Klärung vortragen konnten. Erst 1954 erschien als Habilitationsschrift des deutschen Wissenschaftlers Thomas Barthel eine erste umfassende Studie zum Verständnis von Rongorongo, wie vermutlich das procedure der Zeichen einst genannt wurde. Alle bis dato und im Folgenden in Erscheinung getretenen Forscher waren davon überzeugt, dass Rongorongo als Schrift nur von Linguisten entziffert werden kann. Diese Publikation verfolgt den Ansatz über die "Kunst", der hier erstmals in der Rongorongo-Forschung mit zahlreichen Zeichnungen aufgezeigt wird.

In dem vorliegenden ersten Buch aus einer geplanten Reihe von 10 Publikationen wird dargelegt, dass Rongorongo keine Schrift ist, die Texte konserviert. Der Autor Michael Dietrich fand zahlreiche Informationen über die "graphics" in der wissenschaftlichen ozeanistischen Literatur und damit auch stichhaltige Beweise für die Bedeutung der Zeichen und des platforms. So lässt sich beweisen, dass die Zeichen astronomische Bedeutungen haben, deren Sinn und Zweck die im Pazifik übliche Navigation nach den Sternen der Nachwelt überliefern.

Nach mehreren wissenschaftlichen Veröffentlichungen des Autors wendet sich dieses Buch an alle interessierten Leser, die nicht über die bisher geleistete Rongorongo-Forschung informiert sind. Das Buch ist als populärwissenschaftliche Arbeit zu verstehen, ohne den wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund auszublenden.
