Religiousness in the Late Middle Ages : Christianity and Traditional Culture in Central and Eastern Europe in the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries, Hardback Book

Religiousness in the Late Middle Ages : Christianity and Traditional Culture in Central and Eastern Europe in the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries Hardback

Part of the Polish Studies - Transdisciplinary Perspectives series

Description

This book is devoted to the religiosity of the medieval Christian masses in Central and Eastern Europe and its relationship with the traditional cultures of that time.

Addressing such topics as the common instruction of the three prayers and the Decalogue, "Christian" magic in everyday life, the Marian devotion, and various images of heaven and eternal damnation, the author never loses sight of his main topic: the complex and powerful interaction between medieval folklore and Christianity.
