Research Note: Toleration And Persecution: The Jewish Community Of Medieval Regensburg, Donald L. Keay Oct 1983

Research Note: Toleration And Persecution: The Jewish Community Of Medieval Regensburg, Donald L. Keay

Bridgewater Review

It is often assumed that European Jews of the Middle Ages were a small minority constantly harassed and persecuted by a bigoted Christian population determined to annihilate them. Had such a situation existed, the Christians surely would have succeeded. A truer picture, however, is one of long periods of peace and prosperity as Jews lived side by side with their Christian neighbors, both benefiting from social and economic relations.

A Prelude To Conflict: The German Ethnic Group In Brazilian Society, 1890-1917, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1983

A Prelude To Conflict: The German Ethnic Group In Brazilian Society, 1890-1917, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

The anti-German riots in Brazil in 1917 are better understood within a larger context of ethnic history: the behavior of the dominant Luso-Brazilians (persons of Portuguese language and culture) and the minority TeutoBrazilians (as the Germans were often called) may be best interpreted if examined historically in terms of ethnic group relations, perceptions, and images.

Because of the accidents of time and place, the Germans in Brazil had been allowed to develop their own society without much interference. By the 1880s, the last years of the Brazilian Empire, they had become a society within a society - a large, diverse, and ...

"Our Mission To The Indians": An Account Of A Danish Immigrant Church's Mission To The Cherokee Indians In 1892, John Mark Nielsen Jan 1983

"Our Mission To The Indians": An Account Of A Danish Immigrant Church's Mission To The Cherokee Indians In 1892, John Mark Nielsen

The Bridge

On April 1, 1892, a letter by Detlev Leerskov appeared in Kirkebladet, the church newspaper of the Danish Evangelical Lutheran Church Association in America, otherwise known to Danish immigrants as the Blair Church. Leerskov, who had emigrated from Denmark ten years earlier, married a Cherokee woman, and settled among the Cherokee in what was then Indian Territory, wrote to tell the readers of Kirkebladet how he had received a copy of their paper from his brother in Hutchinson, Minnesota, and that this had been "the first Christian reading in the Danish language" that he had seen in ten years. Moreover ...

Danish Immigrant Contributions To Mainstream American Children's Literature, 1867-1983: An Overview, Karen Nelson Hoyle Jan 1983

Danish Immigrant Contributions To Mainstream American Children's Literature, 1867-1983: An Overview, Karen Nelson Hoyle

The Bridge

On the children's book scene in the United States, Hans Christian Andersen is the dominant figure among Danish authors. More than 800 translated editions of his books exist in the English language. The perennial strength of H.C. Andersen should not, however, draw attention from the notable contributions of Danish immigrants in the United States. Thirteen Danish immigrant authors and illustrators have contributed to mainstream American children's literature in the genres of picture book, historical fiction, and non-fiction from 1867 to the present. Excluded for consideration are translations from Danish, the religious press, the immigrant press, and periodical ...


Clausens On The Move: Chicago, St. Ansgar, Virginia, 1870-1873, J. R. Christianson Jan 1983

Clausens On The Move: Chicago, St. Ansgar, Virginia, 1870-1873, J. R. Christianson

The Bridge

Few Danes in America have been as influential in Scandinavian American life as Claus Laurits Clausen. From his arrival in Wisconsin in 1843 until his retirement in Minnesota more than forty years later, C. L. Clausen was a central figure in the life of Norwegians and Danes throughout the United States of America. H. Fred Swansen' s biography remains the standard work on Clausen's life in English, but an earlier biography in Danish contains important documentary material, and there are numerous biographical sketches, including a particularly sensitive one by Clausen's son-in-law, Svein Strand.

Jens Kjar: From Horsens To Atlantic, Signe Nielsen Betsinger

The Bridge

Of course things are coming back. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but eventually. Prosperity always has followed depression." 1 These encouraging words were spoken by Jens Kjar in Atlantic, Iowa, over twenty-five years ago to a newspaper reporter who was as intrigued by this man as I am. Who was Jens Kjar? How did I come to know about him? And why do I write about him today?


"Laegepraksis I Chicago," Brogede Minder, Morris Salmonsen Jan 1983

"Laegepraksis I Chicago," Brogede Minder, Morris Salmonsen

The Bridge

The Danish-born physician Christian Fenger, whose career was recounted by William K. Beatty in the last issue of The Bridge, was one of many Scandinavian doctors in Chicago during the boom decades one hundred years ago. In a city bursting with immigrants, some Scandinavian doctors catered to their countrymen, and had in most cases to be content with modest financial and social rewards. Others, like Fenger, affiliated with hospitals and made strong contributions to medical science of the day. By today's standards, the practice of medicine was virtually unregulated; the state of the science was in transition as research ...

It was here that Canadians played a role.

On a grand scale, the Canadian Army was ...


The Renascence Of Classical Thought And Form In The Carolingian Period, Sara James Laster Jan 1983

The Renascence Of Classical Thought And Form In The Carolingian Period, Sara James Laster

Institute for the Humanities Theses

The political stability established under the rule of Charlemagne (768-814) was conducive to the flourishing of the simultaneous resurgence of art and learning. Inspired by the achievements of the Roman Empire, Charlemagne wished to give his subjects a feeling of spiritual unity, a sense of continuity with the past, and an enhanced intellectual life. The classical intellectual tradition is traced from ancient times to the Carolingian present to demonstrate that classicism was a continuum. The thesis examines the classical tradition in the intellectual life of the Carolingian period, its conscious rejuvenation in the figurative arts, and its manifestation in the ...

Nineteenth Century French And German Interpretations Of The Early Medieval Germanic Invasions, James N. Owens Jan 1983

Nineteenth Century French And German Interpretations Of The Early Medieval Germanic Invasions, James N. Owens

Dissertations and Theses

Various interpretations of the Germanic invasions of the early Middle Ages have been advanced. These present to the student of historiography a fertile field for inquiry. In this thesis the interpretations of the Germanic invasions propounded by Jules Michelet (1798-1874) and Gustav Freytag (1816-1875) are examined with a view to establishing the cultural context in which their mutually exclusive versions were formulated, and the extent to which that context lent the interpretations of both writers a perceptible national and aesthetic bias.
