Creative Selection between Emending and Forming Medieval Memory

bearbeitet von Sebastian Scholz und Gerald Schwedler
Karl Valentin once asked: „How can it be that only as much happens as fits into the newspaper the next day?“ He focussed on the problem that information of the past has to be organised, arranged and above all: selected and put into form in order to be perceived as a whole. In this sense, the process of selection must be seen as the fundamental moment – the “Urszene” – of making History. This book shows selection as highly creative act. With the richness of early medieval material it can be demonstrated that creative selection was omnipresent and took place even in unexpected text genres.The book demonstrates the variety how premodern authors dealt with „unimportant“, unpleasant or unwanted past. It provides a general overview for regions and text genres in early medieval Europe.
