Continued Violence and Troublesome Pasts

Barents and The Baltic Sea Region

Post-war Europe between the Victors after the Second World War

Contacts, Influences and Social Change This book is based on the papers presented in the symposium “The Barents and the Baltic Sea region: contacts, influences and social change that took place at the University of Oulu on December 2015. The symposium focused on cultural, economic, political, religious, social and other phenomena that have affected the region and its relationships with the surrounding world. Articles in this book are in English and in Finnish.

In most European countries, the legacy of 1939-1945 has made it difficult to remember the war with much glory. The fundamental experience of war for many Europeans was that of immense personal losses and often meaningless hardships. This volume focuses on these histories between the victors: on the cases of Hungary, Estonia, Poland, Austria, Finland, and Germany.

Literacy Skills as Local Intangible Capital The History of a Rural Lending Library c. 1860-1920 This book studies the “grey area” of the success story of rural lending libraries in the Nordic countries through the activities of people’s libraries in one area of Central Finland. The study explores the influence of social, cultural, geographical and economic phenomena on the reading habits of the local population, and reveals interesting reasons why the establishment of elementary schools and popular libraries did not automatically increase the informational capital of the common people of remote regions.

Blood Rite: The Feast of St. Martin in Ireland The custom of sacrificing animals on St. Martin’s Eve (November 10), or ‘spilling blood for St. Martin’, was known in a large part of Ireland until recently. This ritual offering has played an important role in the religious calendar of Christian communities in Western Europe for many centuries. In this book, Mag Fhloinn presents theories on the origin, meaning and function of traditions and narratives associated with the cult which has existed in Ireland since at least the seventh century.

Kui trittitii! Finnish Avian Poetics Birds are a vital element in Finnish culture and literature. In early folklore and poetry, birds were symbols for human emotions, the soul and the art of poetry. The advent of modernist poetics changed the role of these poetic animals. From the perspective of literary criticism, this avian poetics raises new questions: how are birds in poetry, how do they influence writing, is there such a thing as poetic avian agency?

Subject Case in the Latin of Tuscan Charters of the 8th and 9th Centuries The object of this study is the case marking of the subject in early medieval Latin. The study is based on a treebank of Latin charters from Italy. The author examines whether and how the nominative/ accusative-type morphosyntactic alignment changed into a semantically-motivated (active/ inactive) alignment in Late Latin before the disappearance of the case system. The study is implemented by analyzing the distributions of the two syntactic cases, the nominative and the accusative.

A History of the Finnish Church A History of the Finnish Church is the first general survey in English of the history of the Finnish church. It is based on recent research, but written in a clear and accessible style. It presents a continuous narrative of the church in Finland, from the arrival of Christianity to the present day. While the church in Finland developed essentially along the same lines as in other Nordic countries, there are some unique aspects deriving from Finland’s location between East and West.
