Höfische Bäder in der Frühen Neuzeit
Gestalt und Funktion
[Courtly Baths in the Early Modern Period: Design and Function]
Ed. by Deutsch, Kristina / Echinger-Maurach, Claudia / Krems, Eva-Bettina
Aims and Scope
Despite the dread of miasmas and puritanical beliefs, the bath was always an integral element of early modern courtly culture, but it has been insufficiently researched until now. The essays in this volume cover the architecture, equipment, functions, and the culture of the court bath as reflected in the visual arts. The focus is on the importance of the bath for representing a specific understanding of dominance and aristocratic life.
