Mitteldeutsche Selbstzeugnisse der Zeit des Dreißigjährigen Krieges


Thüringer Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Jena

The website Personal Accounts of the Thirty Years War from Central Germany provides access to four previously unpublished texts from an administrator, a Protestant master dyer, a Catholic vicar capitular and a war commissar, tax collector, judge, and diplomat. These commented ego-documents show how the conduct of the war and its many acts of violence in central Germany were perceived and presented very differently in personal and confessional terms. The sources are searchable on this German website, please have a look into the English project description below.
