Text und Normativität im deutschen Mittelalter

Texts and Normativity in the German Middle Ages
XX. Anglo-German Colloquium
Editor: Elke Brüggen Franz-Josef Holznagel Sebastian Coxon Almut Suerbaum


This book investigates how German-language texts from the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era helped to form collective and individual identities through their handling of social norms. Using case studies, the contributors analyze the shaping of norms for different text types, social groups, and genders. They also define the scope allowed by the literature for discussing, establishing, and questioning expectations regarding social action.
