This is a study of the religious culture and intellectual history of the German-speaking regions of Europe between the late thirteenth and the mid-fifteenth centuries. At the centre of the book is the first study in any language of the works of Marquard von Lindau, arguably the most widely-read author in the German language before the Reformation. Marquard was active in the second half of the fourteenth century, and belonged to the generation immediately after theBlack Death. His most successful works deal with pragmatic issues of the Christian life, and accordingly the book has a thematic structure, examining Marquard's highly distinctive and frequently critical contribution to the contemporary understanding of Christ's Passion, the Eucharist, and theVirgin Mary. This is a work which will be of interest to historians of medieval Europe, scholars of medieval and early modern German literature, and historical theologians.

Petrarch’s revival of the ancient practice of laureation in 1341 led to the laurel being conferred on poets throughout Europe in the later Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Within the Holy Roman Empire, Maximilian I conferred the title of Imperial Poet Laureate especially frequently, and later it was bestowed with unbridled liberality by Counts Palatine and university rectors too. This handbook identifies more than 1300 poets laureated within the Empire and adjacent territories between 1355 and 1804, giving (wherever possible) a sketch of their lives, a list of their published works, and a note of relevant scholarly literature. The introduction and various indexes provide a detailed account of a now largely forgotten but once significant literary-sociological phenomenon and illuminate literary networks in the Early Modern period.

The eighteenth century saw the first significant phase of cultural interchange between Britain and Germany. This study examines the part played in this process by women writers, who were entering the literary world in large numbers for the first time. It asks whether women - as readers, translators, and authors - were particularly receptive to the work of other women, and whether a cross-cultural female literary tradition emerged during the period. The study offers a detailed case-study of the German writer Benedikte Naubert, now known for her collection of fairy-tales but also a prolific novelist. It looks first at Naubert's engagement with English literature, that is to say at her numerous translations of English novels, and at the ways in which Anglophilia influenced the production of her own fiction. It establishes how Naubert's interest in England and English literature was related to her position as a woman writer. It then examines the reception of her novels and stories in Britain, questioning how far the response to her texts can be linked to issues of gender. Naubert's work is compared throughout to that of other women writers, and the study thus sheds new light on the extent to which cross-cultural interchange influenced the development of women's writing in both countries.
