Stadt Und Stadtbild in Der Frühen Neuzeit : Frankfurt Am Main Als Kulturelles Zentrum Im
about this item
This book investigates the image of Frankfurt that was developed in journalistic publications in the early modern period. When did this image arise, how did it develop, and what function did it possess? The depictions and stereotypes that were circulated concerning Frankfurt’s rise had traction until 1800. As the author reveals, the perpetuation of these depictions served to compensate for a change in the city’s historical significance.
