Främlingsbilder : Om judar och judendom i medeltida danskt och svenskt kalkmåleri
Sammanfattning: This thesis deals with the Jewish motifs of the medieval mural paintings in Denmark and Sweden; the presences of the motifs are of interest considering that no Jews were allowed entry into Scandinavia at the time. The purpose of the thesis is to study the European influences in the medieval depiction of Jews and Judaism in the Danish and Swedish churches and the purpose for the production of the paintings. To this end, the Danish and Swedish mural paintings ? as well as the medieval texts and motifs of Jews and Judaism that were used as source material ? are studied with respect to the attitudes conveyed. The Danish and Swedish mural paintings are unevenly distributed both within the groups of motifs as wells as its chronological and geographical spread. The purpose of producing the anti-Semitic paintings was foremost to create an external enemy for Christianity to unite against. Evidence is presented that shows how European paintings and craftsmen have influenced the Danish and Swedish mural paintings in an anti-Semitic direction.
