Matheus Miller's Memoir : A Merchant's Life in the Seventeenth Century, Hardback Book

Matheus Miller's Memoir : A Merchant's Life in the Seventeenth Century Hardback

Part of the Early Modern History: Society and Culture series

Description

This book reconstructs the worldview of a Lutheran merchant from the city of Augsburg in the seventeenth century.

Miller's is a singular story. Though he lived through some of the great events of his age, he scarcely mentioned them.

Though he was raised in the standard values of his age, he understood and applied them idiosyncratically.

This is the story of one man's experience and perception based on his memoir and associated documents.

Yet, despite its individual focus, the book explores universal institutions of early modern Europe: patriarchy, hierarchy, honor, community, and confession.
