Memory Before Modernity: Practices of Memory in Early Modern Europe.


Memory Before Modernity: Practices of Memory in Early Modern Europe

Edited by Erika Kuijpers, Judith Pollmann, Johannes Muller, and Jasper van der Steen



340 pages



Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions; Volume 176


Historians of early modern Europe demonstrate how their field can contribute to the modern study of memory, and vice versa. Their topics include the usable past in the Lemburg Armenian community's struggle for equal rights 1579-1654, taboos and memories of the 1514 peasant revolt in Hungary, material memories of the guildsmen in early modern London, the memory brokers of the Dutch revolt between storytelling and patriotic scripture, narrating experiences and emotion of distressing events in the French wars of religion, and the experience of rupture and the history of memory.
