Wechselseitige Wahrnehmung der Religionen im Spätmittelalter und in der Frühen Neuzeit
I. Konzeptionelle Grundfragen und Fallstudien (Heiden, Barbaren, Juden)
[Mutual Perceptions of Religions in the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age]
Ed. by Grenzmann, Ludger / Haye, Thomas / Henkel, Nikolaus / Kaufmann, Thomas
Aims and Scope
This volume combines a number of approaches to the history of the conflict between religions and cultures. Contributions from history, art and legal history, as well as Judaistic studies deal with new conceptual considerations on the history of perceptions in the Late Middle Ages and Early Modern period; above all interpretations of non-European religions, of paganism in their own European tradition, and how ecclesiastic law treated “non-believers” in relation to the heretics. The second volume is in preparation.

The particular contribution of this volume is to combine some significant theoretical contributions [...] with case studies on topics as diverse as the carcasses of birds of paradise [...].
