Essen und Trinken im Mittelalter (1000-1300)
Literarische, kunsthistorische und archäologische Quellen
[Eating and Drinking in the Middle Ages]
Aims and Scope
The image of eating and drinking in the middle ages is mainly determined by vernacular poetry. However, it not only imparts a very fragmented but also ideal concept of past conditions. The analogy with contemporary illustrations and statues as with archaeological finds can complete if not revise previous assumptions. In addition to the living spaces of the nobility, it also examines urban and rural communities as well as cloisters.
