Aims and Scope
The studies and selected texts in this volume focus on literary and cultural life in Strasbourg during the late middle ages. The compendium might be regarded as a “cultural topography” of the southwestern portion of the German-speaking realm during this period. It explores the connections between book production, urban culture and lives of religious devotion.
