A greater fluidity in social relations and hierarchies was experienced across Europe in the early modern period, a consequence of the major political and religious upheavals of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. At the same time, the universities of Europe became increasingly orientated towards serving the territorial state, guided by a humanistic approach to learning which stressed its social and political utility. It was in these contexts that the notion of the scholar as a distinct social category gained a foothold and the status of the scholarly group as a social elite was firmly established. University scholars demonstrated a great energy when characterizing themselves socially as learned men. This book investigates the significance and implications of academic self-fashioning throughout Europe in the early modern period. It describes a general and growing deliberation in the fashioning of individual, communal and categorical academic identity in this period. It explores the reasons for this growing self-consciousness among scholars, and the effects of its expression - social and political, desired and real.

Wissen besitzt eine Schauseite, und dies selbst dort, wo es sich um das Fachwissen von Experten handelt. Seine Träger inszenieren es gewissenhaft, bedienen sich bei öffentlichen Auftritten bestimmter Vokabularien und bestimmter Präsentationsstrategien und Rituale. Wenn es aber nun Experten seit der Entstehung zahlreicher spezifischer Wissensfelder schon seit dem 12. Jahrhundert gibt - wie funktionierte dann das Wechselspiel von Selbstinszenierung und Rollenzuschreibung in den Jahrhunderten der Vormoderne? Die Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Bandes steuern zur Beantwortung dieser Frage empirische Studien aus der Allgemein-, der Rechts-, Kirchen-, Medizin- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte bei und beleuchten spezifische Inszenierungsformen und Rituale.

Much has been written about women of the English Renaissance, but few examples of women's writing from that era have been readily available until now. This remarkable anthology assembles for the first time 144 primary texts and documents written by women between 1550 and 1700 and reveals an unprecedented view of the intellectual and literary lives of women in early modern England. The writings range from poetry to philosophical treatises, addressing a wide array of subjects including law, gender, education, motherhood, medicine, religion, life-writing, and the arts. Each selection is paired with a beautifully reproduced facsimile of the text's original source manuscript, allowing a glimpse into the literary past that will lead the reader to truly appreciate the care and craft with which these women writers prepared their texts. This essential anthology is a captivating guide to the legacy of early modern women's literature and its authors that must not be overlooked.
