Sophie Von La Roches Briefe an Johann Friedrich Christian Petersen 1788–1806 : Kritische Edition,
about this item
The first historical-critical edition of the 195 letters of Sophie von La Roche to the educator of princes Johann Friedrich Christian Petersen offers surprising insights into the final chapter of the writer’s life. Her attitude was not one of resignation; von La Roche helped influence the education of a sovereign and initiated marriage schemes between Protestant princely houses to favor a Prussian-friendly Restoration policy.
