Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Christianity - Refers to the world religion and culture that developed in the first century CE, driven by the teachings of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Its roots are in the Judaic tradition and the Old Testament. The tenets include a belief in the death and redemptive resurrection of Jesus. The religion incorporates a tradition of faith, ritual, and a form of church authority or leadership.
  • Danish - Refers to the culture of the modern nation of Denmark, or in general to the cultures that have occupied the area of northwestern Europe, north of Germany. It is often used to refer specifically to the cultures of the historic Danes, a Scandinavian branch of the Teutons. It is also sometimes used to refer to the culture of all Scandinavians who invaded England from the 9th century to the 11th century CE.
  • engravings - Prints on paper incorporating impressions of a reverse design created on a printing plate, usually copper, into which the design has been incised (engraved) using burins or gravers. Historically, "engravings" has sometimes been incorrectly used to refer to all prints, regardless of the specific technique. For prints made from designs engraved on a flat wooden block, use "wood cuts"; for prints made from a plate that is etched rather than engraved, use "etchings."
  • families - Groups of individuals related by blood, marriage, adoption, or cohabitation.
  • religion and mythology
