Stadt, Kanzlei und Kultur im Ubergang zur Fruhen Neuzeit City Culture and Urban Chanceries in an Era of Change

by Jan R. | 01 September 2004
PAPERBACK
Category: Other Books
Synopsis
Die beiden Jahrhunderte zwischen 1400 und 1600 sind - bei allem Fortsetzen mittelalterlicher Praegungen - von einem permanenten Wandel im Grossen wie im Kleinen erfuellt. Exemplarisch zeigt sich diese Dynamik, zu der die Reformation wesentlich beitraegt, auch in der ueberaus komplexen Organisation staedtischen Lebens im Uebergang zur Fruehen Neuzeit. Die in diesem Sammelband vereinten Tagungsbeitraege aus der Germanistik, Niederlandistik, Geschichtswissenschaft und Neueren Kirchengeschichte gehen der Frage nach, wie in dieser Zeit unter weithin massgeblichem Einfluss der Kanzlei als zentralem Organ der staedtischen Verwaltung und der in ihnen leitend taetigen Stadt- und Ratsschreiber, aber auch durch andere staedtische Funktionstraeger durch offizielle Schriftzeugnisse und durch oeffentliche Rede das kulturelle Leben in einer Stadt beschreib- und erkennbar wird. In spite of the continuing influence of the medieval tradition, the two centuries between 1400 and 1600 display a constant process of change both in wider and more localised cultural settings. This dynamics, to which also the Reformation made an essential contribution, particularly manifests itself in the complex organisation of urban life in the transition to the early modern era. The contributions from Dutch and German studies, from history and church history collected in this volume, address the question how cultural life in the city in this period can be studied through the influence of the chanceries as central organs of urban administration. Chanceries and the people who worked in them are of great importance since much of the cultural and economic life of a city was recorded by city or council scribes or other urban functionaries in their 'official' documents and public communications.
