Product description

Welche Symbolkraft geht von Bäumen aus? Welche mythischen, religiösen und philosophischen Vorstellungen sind seit der Antike mit ihnen verbunden? Bäume wurden als Verkörperung oder Wohnort von Göttern verehrt, sie waren - und sind noch immer - Symbole der Hoffnung, Modelle für Staaten und Familiengeschichten, Orte des Gedenkens und der Erkenntnis, der Liebe und des Todes. Religion und Philosophie, Dichtung und Kunst haben Bäume thematisiert. Das setzt sich fort bis zu den Baumaktionen moderner Künstler und den Motiven auf Briefmarken und Münzen. Der Autor beschreibt, welche Beziehung Griechen und Römer, Germanen und Slawen, die Menschen des schristlichen Mittelalters wie der Neuzeit zu Bäumen entwickeln. In deutscher Sprache.
