Spoils of Knowledge: Looted Books in Uppsala University Library during the Seventeenth Century
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of History of Science and Ideas.
2019 (English)In: Rethinking Europe: War and Peace in the Early Modern German Lands / [ed] Gerhild Williams, Sigrun Hade, Christian Schneider, Leiden: Brill Nijhoff, 2019, p. 252-273Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This essay analyzes the long-term effects of looted books through one case: the creation

of the Uppsala University library in seventeenth-century Sweden. Without denying

the religious controversies of that time, the essay challenges the idea of Catholic

books being useless in a Lutheran library. By mainly analyzing library catalogues, the

essay demonstrates how Jesuit epistemology affected the organization of the Uppsala

library, and that confessional books urged librarians to think about temporality in

terms of old and new knowledge.
