Disasters, nature and the environment

  • The winter of 821/22 is extremely severe in Europe. The Rhine, Danube, Elbe and Seine are covered in ice for months. Many people and animals freeze to death. Empress Judith , the second wife of Ludwig the Pious, helps people, for which the abbot of Fulda, Rabanus Maurus and the poet monk Walahfrid Strabo thank her with wonderful verses that will go down in literary history.
