Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which combines a variety of contributions by scholars of diverse backgrounds including medieval history, art history, Soviet historiography, Russian and Eastern European studies, comparative literature, anthropology, theology, religious studies and cultural theory. With a high degree of consistency, all the articles relate to Gurevich's work, influence or life and are organized around Aron Iakovlevich Gurevich's central themes: the medieval individual, popular versus elite culture, medieval popular Christianity, medieval Scandinavia, his dialogues with the Annales school and with Mikhail Bakhtin. According to Gurevich, his ability to develop a fresh approach to the medieval West and to challenge some of the traditional concepts of European medievalists was largely conditioned by his initial training as a specialist in Scandinavian studies.

Keywords: Aron Iakovlevich Gurevich; cultural theory; European medievalists; Soviet historiography
