Empowerment And Representation At The University In Early Modern Germany

Cover: 

This study aims to provide an in-depth and systematic analysis of the image-fashining process and its development at new universities in the early modern period.  This study investigates the fashioning of public image in the formative years of new ‘territorial’ universities, concentrating on the examples of Helmstedt and Wurzburg. The book explores the extent, forms, functions, and effects of representations of these institutions and their newly established scholarly communities as enacted in ritual, symbolic actions, occasional poetry, orations and publications, architecture, and printed image
