Abstract'See, people with power understand exactly one thing: violence' - said Noam Chomsky. But what is violence? It is not only the use of physical force that is intended to hurt, damage, or kill. Obviously, there are also less fundamental forms of ferocity, brutality, and destructiveness: 'the other violence' that is to be discovered beyond battlefields, in relationships, in cities, and in homes. This series of presentations will explore some facets of this 'other violence'. The papers, which examine the different forms of violence on a broad scale, take into consideration how these forms are reflected in different sources (e.g. letters, law books) and how they are portrayed in different social spheres, the aristocratic and the ecclesiastical one.
