Description
Summary:"The French president Charles de Gaulle spoke of a Europe "from the Atlantic to the Urals". Europe was spatially formed with these topographic parameters from the late 10th century onwards, with the massive Christianization of its inhabitants. At that time, however, all three monotheistic religions already had a steady presence there. Could such a macro-space be thought-and-narrated from a macro-perspective, in view of its medieval past? This has already been done through common 'denominators' such as the Migration Period, wars, trade, spread of Christianity. Could it also be seen through a common religious-philosophical and spiritual phenomenon - the Anticipation of the End of the world among Christians, Muslims, and Jews? This book gives a positive answer to the last question"-- Provided by publisher.
