Die Vorstellung des Weltuntergangs, des Gerichts über die Lebenden und die Toten, der Schaffung eines neuen Himmels und einer neuen Erde, sie ist etwas Christliches, mit starken Wurzeln in der hebräischen Bibel. Die antiken Mythen kennen so etwas nicht. In der „Völuspá“ liest man von vergleichbaren Dingen, aber sicherlich hat der Dichter, der ihr die Form gab, die in der Älteren Edda überliefert ist, allerhand Christliches dazugetan; immerhin wird mit einem germanischen Kern zu rechnen sein. Dem Islam dagegen ist eschatologisches Denken fremd, und auch den Hochkulturen des Mittleren und des Fernen Ostens. Das Ende alles Irdischen vor Augen zu haben, ja, es ist etwas sehr Europäisches.

Eschatological thinking is alien to Islam, however, and even the civilizations of the middle and far East. The end of all earthly things in mind to have, Yes, it is something very European.

La grâce de Jacqueline Sauvage relance le débat chez les juristes. Le droit de grâce : passe-droit ou nécessité face à une justice injuste? Le Moyen Âge, dont on l'a hérité, n'avait pas tranché.   Le 31 janvier 2016, la grâce partielle accordée par François Hollande à Jacqueline Sauvage, inculpée pour le meurtre de son mari, a ramené sous les projecteurs un droit très ancien des chefs d’État français : le droit de grâce.
