Lightbulb Free (DRM-free) Middelalderens verden [Danish Medieval EU History Culture Overview]

Middelalderens verden: Verdensbilledet, tænkningen, rummet og religionen (The World of the Middle Ages: The worldview, thinking, space and religion) edited by Ole Høiris & Per Ingesman is a volume in the Verdensboger (World Book) series of Danish-language self-contained titles which provide a comprehensive introductory overview to cultural and historical periods, this one covering various topics throughout Middle Ages in mostly Europe, from influential thinkers including Thomas More to church architecture to early scientific and mathematical notions to the influence of trade with the Islamic world, with a special section on the Christianization of the Nordic regions, with the usual lavish illustrations including some very nice facsimiles of illuminated manuscript pages, free for a limited time courtesy of Aarhus University Press in Denmark.

This is their featured Danish-language Free Book of the Month selection for October, and they've previously been generous enough to also give us the volumes for Renaissance, Enlightenment, Romanticism, Modern Age, and the Ancient Classical worlds.

Currently free through October directly @ the university's dedicated promo page (DRM-free PDF available worldwide, approx 43 mb), and you can read more about the book on its regular catalogue page

Beskrivelse på dansk
Middelalderens verdensbillede havde som udgangspunkt, at Gud havde åbenbaret den endegyldige sandhed i Bibelen. Kosmos var en velordnet størrelse med Jorden i centrum, og i samfundet havde ethvert menneske sin faste plads, ligesom samfundets gudgivne klasser havde hver deres funktion inden for helheden. De døde og de levende tilhørte samme fællesskab. Historien var en meningsfyldt størrelse, hvis forløb fra begyndelsen ved skabelsen til afslutningen ved dommedag var fastlagt af Gud.

I Middelalderens Verden giver 30 forskere fra Aarhus Universitet et indblik i en fremmedartet og mangfoldig fortid. De præsenterer os for billeder og bygninger, begreber og tankefigurer, fortællinger og følelser. De fortæller os om kristendommens møde med andre religioner. Sidst, men ikke mindst, bringer de os ind på livet af vigtige middelalderskikkelser, fra fyrster som Karl den Store til filosoffer som Johannes Duns Scotus.

Middelalderens Verden dækker den periode, hvor en civilisation funderet på kristendommen blev spredt til hele Europa. Derved blev ikke bare hele vores verdensdel civiliseret, men Europa fik på trods af krige også mulighed for at udvikle en så stærk teknologisk, økonomisk, vidensmæssig og militær enhed, at det med varierende lande i spidsen de næste 500 år kunne erobre og dominere resten af verden. Her lagdes grunden til Europas globale betydning, som vi endnu i dag lever med - på godt og ondt.

Just a reminder that this will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie, if you're interested.
