TIME OF GOD AND TIME OF HUMAN IN DANISH PROVERBS

TIME OF GOD AND TIME OF HUMAN IN DANISH PROVERBS


Author:  Nikulicheva D.B.

Abstract
The article explores verbal representations of God's time and human time in Danish proverbs. Comparison of the oldest (1550) and modern Danish translations of the Bible (1931 and 1992) allows eliciting the evolution of time representations. Time increasingly shifts to human-owned and human-oriented perspective.
