LOOK OF LEISURE HISTORIC SEASIDE VILLAS OF THE NORTHERN BALTIC Summer villas became a special phenomenon on the Karelian Isthmus during the 1870s. The coastal stretch of the Isthmus northwest of St. Petersburg developed into a meeting point between two cultures. The area of Terijoki, today Zelenogorsk, became the most famous summer resort. Architecturally these buildings allowed great freedom in design. This study offers also insights to the contemporary questions concerning the future of this shared heritage.

APPROACHING THE DEAD

Studies on Mortuary Ritual in the Ancient World The volume is about the social interaction of the living with the dead, as reflected in the textual and archaeological records of ancient societies. The authors examine different aspects of mortuary ritual practices. The examples cover a variety of places and historical periods, from the Late Bronze Age city of Ugarit in modern-day Syria to Late Iron Age Scandinavia. The majority of the studies, however, are focused on mortuary culture in the Levant in the long first millennium BCE.

FISH BONES AND FISHING IN FINLAND DURING THE STONE AGE Burned fish bones are constantly being discovered in the excavations of Stone Age settlements in Finland. This abundance of fish bones, as well as the usual location of the settlements on the shore of lakes or the sea, illustrate the importance of fishing to the Stone Age economy. Added to this, examples of the fishing gear that was used, mostly made of stone, are also occasionally found in Stone Age contexts.

On 25 August 1937, a strange-looking man appeared in the fishing hamlet of Teelin in Donegal, lreland. He spoke lrish, albeit with a foreign, Kerry accent. After a month there, the visitor, Ludwig Mühlhausen asked a local storyteller, Séamus Ó Caiside, if he could relate a few stories for him. These two men recorded 12 tales and two songs. ‘Scéal Rí na Gréige’ presents a version of the well-known international folktale type ATU 707:’Three Golden Children’.

DICTIONARIES AS SOURCES OF FOLKLORE DATA What does Elias Lönnrot have in common with Vladimir Dahl, Antoni Maria Alcover and the Brothers Grimm? The answer is that all of these folklorists were also lexicographers. And there is much folklore data buried in dictionaries, whether compiled by those who were folklorists or by those who were not. This book attempts to take the measure of such data with a set of studies ranging from Greece to England, and from Newfoundland to Trinidad and Tobago.

LIVING IN A POLITICAL WORLD

Social Commentary from Singer-Songwriters to Rap Popular songs are increasingly recognized as cultural artefacts and as indicators for societal developments, as can be seen by the fact that Bob Dylan received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016. Song lyrics are especially interesting, since they depend on the intention of the authors/ performers as well as on the acceptance of the audience. The social import of popular music, such as rock and rap, is rather seldom analyzed in detail.

DARKNESS, LIGHT, AND ACTIVE LOVE

Studies on Theory and Practice in Luther and Lutheran-Orthodox Ecumenical Theology The relation between faith and love in Martin Luther’s theology is a classical theme in Luther scholarship. This collection of essays addresses Luther’s understanding of faith and love by examining his idea of faith as both darkness and light. By focusing on these two aspects of faith we are able to detect Luther’s deep connection with mystical theological traditions and foster the knowledge of his theology of spiritual life.

EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN THEOLOGY IN LATVIA FROM 1920 TO 1940 The first period of independence (1918–1940) was one of enormous socioeconomic and cultural development in Latvia. The establishment of a national university in 1919 was a decisive step in the academic work and educational life of the newly independent Latvia. In 1920 the Faculty of Theology was established at the University of Latvia. Despite its success in creating a national Latvian theology, the faculty was unable to unite all the theologians of Latvia.

Postcapitalism has gained attention as an invitation to amplify existing alternatives to systemic scale.

STATISTICAL MODELLING OF CIRCUMPOLAR PERMAFROST Thermal and geomorphic sensitivities to climate change and societal implications

Perennially frozen ground, permafrost, governs complex geo- and ecosystems in the Arctic. Millions of people reside on the frozen ground that has historically supported the integrity of their cities and transportation infrastructure. Permafrost, however, is not permanent but sensitive to the ongoing climate change. This thesis examines the contemporary characteristics of the Northern Hemisphere permafrost and assesses its sensitivities to 21st-century climate change.
