Abstract

It is my impression that Kurdish people often think of the lives, mores and life-worlds in Europe and the Middle East in terms of a dichotomy, or even as complete opposites. In my letter, I would like to draw readers’ attention to historical parallels, links and commonalities between medieval Kurdish worlds and those in medieval and early Modern Central Europe, especially in the case of Hungary.
