Rituale, Zeichen, Bilder. Formen und Funktionen symbolischer by Klaus Schreiner

By Klaus Schreiner

Der Bielefelder Mediävist Klaus Schreiner zählt zu den ­­Pionieren einer jüngeren Politikgeschichte, die es versteht, historisch-anthropologische und kulturwissenschaftliche Fragestellungen nutzbar zu machen. Jenseits einer traditio-nellen Verfassungsgeschichte geht es dabei um die Erschließung der politischen Kulturen Alteuropas, um ihre Merkmale, ihre Wandlungen und ihre prägende Kraft, die zum Teil bis in die Gegenwart hineinwirkt. Dabei ist zunehmend die gemeinschaftsbildende und gemeinschaftsstärkende Kraft von Symbolen, Zeichen und Ritualen in den Blick geraten. Sie bilden auch das thematische Zentrum der in diesem Band zusammengestellten Arbeiten von Klaus Schreiner.
