By Jean Delumeau
Esta excepcional obra del historiador Jean Delumeau demuestra que no sólo los individuos, sino también las colectividades e incluso las civilizaciones pueden estar atrapadas en un permanente diálogo con el miedo, ofreciéndonos una sorprendente historia de Occidente desde el siglo XIV hasta el XVIII. Apoyándose en un vasto campo de observación #histórico, desde luego, pero también económico, sociológico, psicoanalítico, psicológico y antropológico# el autor traza el retrato de una sociedad traumatizada por l. a. peste, las guerras, las disputas religiosas y los angeles inseguridad permanente, y analiza l. a. instrumentalización del terror, sobre todo por parte de los angeles Iglesia. Este ensayo matiza los angeles imagen a veces idealizada del Renacimiento y desvela l. a. intimidad y las pesadillas de nuestro pasado, raíces de los angeles necesidad de seguridad que caracteriza a los angeles sociedad contemporánea.
