Krisen, Kriege, Katastrophen


Wars, epidemics, extreme natural forces and famine crises have had a decisive impact on people's lives in the Middle Ages. They were essential factors for population development, influenced contemporary mentalities and also found intensive expression in literature. The anthology combines contributions from the subjects of history, German, Romance studies, Slavic studies, musicology and forensic genetics in an interdisciplinary manner. The question is asked about the patterns of perception, interpretation, coping and memory of catastrophes in medieval society, about real events as well as about mythical defeats and the apocalypse. The thematic arc spans from people's handling of natural hazards and epidemics to political, social and emotional crises with their effects on society to fear of death and epidemics.more
