"... der er flere af den slags". Bøndernes møde med krigen i 1400-tallet, set med Holstener-præstens øjne

Carsten Selch Jensen


This article analyses how peasants were treated during the wars fought during the early decades of the fifteenth centuries between the Danish King Eric of Pomerania and the Counts of Holstein, as described by the Chronicon Holtzatiae (written c. 1448). The sympathies of the chronicler towards these peasants depended entirely on their suspected locality towards the counts of Holstein, with the loyal peasants fighting a just war supported by God, and the disloyal peasants being nothing more that ungodly beasts fighting an unjust war.
