    • Many essays in this volume focus on the history of the Strasbourg monasteries and convents.
    • Several scholars devote their presentations to the history of piety in Alsace from the 13th to the 15th centuries.

    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.
