Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Gender as a Category of Knowledge

Stefanie Kollmann-Obwegeser

PhD Project:

zorn und nît – ira et invidia. Emotions and Vices in Didactic and Narrative Texts in the 12th and 13th Centuries


 

Description of the Project

 

Vices and sins can be found in medieval catalogues and treatises on virtue, as well as in theoretical and practical texts. Thus vices such as anger (ira/zorn), envy (invidia/nît) or grief (tristitia/trûer) are not only seen as vicious attitudes or bad qualities but also as emotions/affects. Taking anger and envy as my primary examples, I ask how the relationship between vice and emotions is approached in the aforementioned texts and which scientific traditions discourses and realities are referenced. What role does the category gender play for questions about emotions and vices, and about anger and envy ?
