Old Age before Modernity : Case Studies and Methodological Perspectives, 500 BC ‒ 1700 AD

Dieser Band widmet sich dem Alter(n) in der Vormoderne mit einem Fokus auf dem Mittelalter. Gerontologische und geisteswissenschaftliche, vor allem geschichtswissenschaftliche Perspektiven werden miteinander kombiniert, um so zu neuen Einsichten zu gelangen. Die gerontologischen Beiträge legen zentrale Theorien und Methoden dar, die für die Analyse historischer Entwicklungen relevant sind, während die geisteswissenschaftlichen Beiträge Fallstudien präsentieren, welche historische Evidenz liefern.

This book investigates old age and ageing in premodern times, with a special focus on the Middle Ages. Perspectives from gerontology and the humanities, and above all from history, are combined to provide novel insights. The gerontological articles explain key theories and methods that are relevant for the analysis of historical developments, while the contributions from the humanities offer historical evidence complementary to these inputs.

Il presente volume esamina la vecchiaia e l’invecchiamento come appaiono nelle epoche premoderne e, in particolare, nel medioevo. Combinando prospettive provenienti dalla gerontologia da una parte e dalle discipline umanistiche, in particolare la ricerca storica, dall’altra, si cerca di aprire la strada a nuove conoscenze. I contributi gerontologici propongono teorie e metodi che sono fondamentali per analizzare gli sviluppi storici, mentre quelli umanistici offrono evidenza storica attraverso casi di studio.
