[Extreme Natural Events in the Middle Ages: Their Consequences, Presentation, and Instrumentalization from the 6th to the 11th Century]
Series:Europa im Mittelalter 31
Aims and Scope
There has been a dearth of systematic comparative studies of environmental and natural events during the Early and High Middle Ages. Using new analytic concepts and methods, this study examines multiple and highly diverse sources in relation to extreme natural events. It represents the first precise study of the reliability of contemporary perception concerning such events, and also considers their instrumentalization.
