Many contemporary periodisation schemes have their roots in Europe, reflecting particular national religious or historiographical traditions and teleologies. As part of the colonial encounter they have been translated into new temporal authenticities in the Americas, Asia and Africa. Culturally determined as they are, these periodisation schemes are begging for systematic comparison in order to identify their contextual specificity and contingency. An interdisciplinary and transregional approach allows to work out categories of historical analysis that go beyond nation-bound interpretative patterns. In considering case studies from different parts of the world, the aim of this volume is to uncover some of the dynamics behind particular uses of periodisation schemes, as concepts for ordering the past.

Dieses Themenheft gibt einen Überblick über die Diversität von Sachüberlieferungen mittelalterlicher Schuld- und Kreditbeziehungen in Zentral-, Nord- und Südosteuropa. In neun Fallstudien wird die Bedeutung verschiedenartiger Artefakte wie Kerbhölzer, Pfandgegenstände, Rechnungslisten oder Briefe für Kreditbeziehungen in unterschiedlichen mittelalterlichen Gesellschaften beschrieben. Es wird gezeigt, dass Kredite auf keine bestimmte ökonomische oder soziale Gruppe beschränkt waren. Unter Anwendung multidisziplinärer Zugänge, etwa aus der Archäologie, Philologie, Judaistik oder Germanistik, werden neue Aspekte des mittelalterlichen Wirtschaftens rekonstruiert, die bisher nur peripher wahrgenommen wurden.
