Johan Huizinga

Johan Huizinga

Dutch philosopher, historian, researcher of culture, professor of Groningen and Leiden University.
It is an evil world. The fires of hatred and violence burn fiercely. Evil is powerful, the devil covers a darkened earth with hisblack wings. And soon the end of the world is expected. But mankind does not repent, the church struggles, and the preachers and poets warn and lament in vain.More Johan Huizinga quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

History is the interpretation of the significance that the past has for us.More Johan Huizinga quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
