Hanska, Jussi
Strategies of Sanity and Survival. Religious Responses to Natural Disasters in the Middle Ages
Finnish Literature Society
Studia Fennica. Historica 2
Tampere 2002, 220 pp.


This book aims to cover one grey area in historical studies, that is, spiritual responses and survival strategies of medieval man in front of natural disasters. It asks what were his means to deal with natural disasters, phenomena he could not scientifically understand. It is a specific study based on original and in most case unedited sources, but it can also be read as a general introduction. It crosses boundaries between different fields of learning and traditionally accepted time periods of history.
