Example text

Gudrun war auf ein Lager aus Torf gebettet, das mit frischem Stroh bestreut war. Der Dorfpriester, ein dunkelhaariger Mann mit dichten, buschigen Augenbrauen, die ihm einen ständigen Ausdruck von Strenge verliehen, saß ein Stück entfernt. Er begrüßte Hrotrud durch ein Kopfnicken; dann wandte er seine Aufmerksamkeit wieder dem großen, in Holz gebundenen Buch zu, das auf seinem Schoß lag. Hrotrud hatte dieses Buch schon bei früheren Besuchen in diesem Haus bemerkt, doch sein Anblick erfüllte sie stets aufs neue mit Ehrfurcht.

Sobald Gudrun in den Wald ging, um Feuerholz zu sammeln, eilte Johanna an das Schreibpult, an dem Matthias über seiner Arbeit saß, und schlug die Bibel an der Stelle auf, an der sie die vorherige Lektion beendet hatten. Auf diese Weise machte Johanna auch weiterhin rasche Fortschritte, so daß sie vor der Fastenzeit im nächsten Jahr beinahe das gesamte Buch des Johannes gemeistert hatte. Eines Tages holte Matthias etwas aus seinem Ranzen hervor und hielt es Johanna mit einem Lächeln hin. « Es war ein Medaillon aus Holz, an einer langen Kordel befestigt.

Hrotrud zuckte zusammen; sie hatte beinahe vergessen, daß der Mann bei ihnen war. »Die Wehen haben Eure Frau geschwächt. « Der Dorfpriester machte ein düsteres Gesicht. Er nahm Hrotrud das Bilsenkraut aus der Hand, umrundete die Trennwand und warf das Kraut ins Herdfeuer, wo es zischend verbrannte. « Hrotrud konnte es nicht fassen. Da hatte es sie Wochen anstrengender Suche gekostet, um diese kleine Menge der kostbaren Medizin zu sammeln, und nun so etwas! Sie wandte sich dem Dorfpriester zu und wollte ihrem Zorn Luft machen, hielt dann aber inne, als sie den harten, kalten Blick in seinen Augen sah.
