"Growing Old in the Middle Ages draws a comprehensive picture of medieval old age, describing how it was perceived by different groups in society; what help was given to the ageing; the desire to increase longevity; the consolation offered to the elderly; and the growing concern with physiology. With the increased interest in old age as a subject for historical study, this timely overview is an invaluable contribution to the social history of the whole of medieval Europe"--Publisher description.

Книга «Старение в Средние века», вышедшая в 1995 г. на иврите, а вскоре и в переводе на английский (именно на него опирается данная рецензия), принадлежит перу известного историка Суламифь Шахар, родившейся в 1928 г. в Латвии (ее первым языком был русский), а затем переехавшей с семьей в Израиль. Шахар – специалист по долгому Средневековью, включающему в себя и Возрождение, и средневековые элементы более поздних периодов, а также переводчица средневековых текстов с латыни (она работала, например, с письмами Элоизы и Абеляра, а также с автобиографиями XII в.). В фокусе ее исследовательского внимания – социальные группы, интерес к которым стал проявляться только в последние десятилетия: женщины, дети, старики.

Erst zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts hat sich die Geriatrie als wissenschaftlicher Zweig der Medizin herausgebildet. Diese Entwicklung zeigt, da� das Alter als wissenschaftliches und technisches Problem zunehmend an Bedeutung gewann. Alte Menschen waren nicht mehr l�nger einfach nur �alt�, sondern wurden zu kranken Menschen, die einer dementsprechenden Bewertung und Behandlung unterworfen wurden. Die vorliegende Studie zeigt aus der Sicht der �lteren Patienten, was diese unter �Gesundheit�, �Krankheit� oder �Heilung� verstanden und wie sie damit umgingen. Gekl�rt wird weiterhin, wie Gesunde und �rzte auf die alten Kranken reagierten und wie deren gesellschaftliche Position sich �nderte. Da alte Menschen in ihrer Leistungsf�higkeit ohnehin schon als beschr�nkt galten, kam mit dem Aspekt der Krankheit ein zweiter, negativ besetzter Aspekt hinzu.

Old age and aging has become a very current topic. Familiar expressions like "growing old" or "being old" have proven complex and their definitions are in flux. The discussions concerning aging are characterized by a particularly broad interdisciplinarity. The expression "culture of old age", which has arisen from these discussions, is attempting to do justice to the concept's manifold forms and to expand definitions that have become too narrow. The concept of cultures of old age incorporates models and realities as well as structures and coding, placing the perception of aging and the dealings with the elderly and old objects into their respective social contexts. In October 2006, the Institute for the Material Culture of the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period organized an international congress that focussed on medieval and early modern cultures of old age (13th to 17th century). The context, discourse, and realities of old age and aging as portrayed in various primary sources was investigated and analyzed comparatively from the perspective of a number of disciplines in the humanities, the social and the natural sciences, as well as cultural studies.
