Environment and History

Noah's Flood: The Genesis Story and Natural Disasters in Early Modern Times

Michael Kempe

Environment and History 9(2003): 151-171

Different interpretations of the biblical deluge give us an idea of various modes of perceptions of natural disasters in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In analysing these interpretations we learn much about early modern European ways of thinking about nature, mankind and the relationship between both. In this way such an analysis becomes an important part of an ambitious project of environmental history that deals with relationships between man and nature in history.
