Description (in Danish)
Kold, mørk og beskidt, præget af overtro og brutalitet. Faktisk lige til historiens mødding. Sådan tænker vi tit på middelalderen. Men den lagde ifølge Jørgen Møller, professor i statskundskab ved Aarhus Universitet, brostenene til nutidens Europa. For uden periodens genstridige adelsmænd, magtbegærlige paver og griske købmænd ville demokratier, retsstater og frie markedsøkonomier aldrig have set dagens lys i Europa. Og Europa ville ikke være en mirakuløs undtagelse fra historiens regel om korruption, elendighed og diktatur. Men nok bare en by i Rusland.
