Abstract [sv]

Mod är en egenskap som hyllats i alla krigförande kulturer. Konsten, litteraturen och filosofin har ofta tagit upp modet som tema, både för att befästa ett militärt ideal och för att problematisera denna egenskap. Men vad är egentligen mod? Var går gränsen till övermod? Vad utmärker mod i strid, och kan man träna soldater att bli modiga? Dessa frågeställningar tar plats även i vår tid där krig och försvar diskuteras i dagens militära miljöer, och frågor om etik är lika aktuella som frågor om effektivitet.

Mod i strid och filosofi studerar författarna historiska perspektiv på mod och dagsaktuell forskning kring strid och militär utbildning. Förr talade man om mod eller tapperhet som en av flera eftersträvansvärda dygder – idag talar man hellre om professionalism. Men hur mycket skiljer sig egentligen den moderna tidens militära ideal från de historiska? Kan vi lära oss något av den dygdetik som i århundraden användes för att forma modiga individer och tappra krigare?

Abstract [en]

Ericus Olai (d.1486) is best known as the author of the Chronica regni Gothorum, the first history of the Swedish realm. But he was also a liturgical poet and a theologian; Ericus wrote the versified office for the feast of the Swedish patron saints and he taught at Uppsala University, at the cathedral where he was a lifelong member of the chapter.

 

The compilation of the Chronica was a unique achievement among the Swedish late medieval clergy. Yet, to some extent, it can be understood as a product of more ordinary clerical concerns with liturgy, theology and education. Ericus introduced his Swedish story with reference to its place within the overarching progress of salvation, and to the importance in this divine plan of a twofold government of kings and bishops ruling from Uppsala. But there is another important point where Ericus’s historiographical and liturgical interests overlapped, which this paper explores: namely his use of the hagiographical traditions of the Uppsala cathedral in the writing of his history of the realm. 

 

Among the materials at hand for compiling a Swedish history were the native saints’  Lives. These texts were particularly useful in Ericus’s attempt to turn his vision of history into a solid, source-based account. The lives of the saints contained important information about the early history of the realm and its rulers, but they were also imbued with the notion of sacred history that informs the Chronica’s prologue. This paper asks how Ericus used the hagiographical traditions of Uppsala to compile his history of the realm, and examine the thematic correspondences that exist between his own liturgical poetry and the Chronica. The analysis will focus on his account of two contemporary saints, St King Erik and St Bishop Henrik, a paradigmatic example of the twofold rule of monarchs and bishops in Uppsala.
