Cultures of Communication from Reformation to Enlightenment : Constructing Publics in the Early Modern German Lands, Hardback Book

Cultures of Communication from Reformation to Enlightenment : Constructing Publics in the Early Modern German Lands Hardback

Edited by Professor James Van Horn Melton

Part of the St Andrews Studies in Reformation History series

Description

Focusing on the territories of the Holy Roman Empire from the early Reformation to the mid-eighteenth century, this volume of fifteen interdisciplinary essays examines some of the structures, practices and media of communication that helped shape the social, cultural, and political history of the period. Not surprisingly, print was an important focal point, but it was only one medium through which individuals and institutions constructed publics and communicated with an audience. Religious iconography and ritual, sermons, music, civic architecture, court ceremony, street gossip, acts of violence, are also forms of communication explored in the volume. Bringing together scholars from diverse disciplines and scholarly backgrounds, this volume transcends narrow specializations and will be of interest to a broad range of academics seeking to understand the social, political and cultural consequences of the "information revolution" of Reformation Europe.
