Abstract

Diplomacy as a family business. The Casatis as Spanish-Milanese envoys in Lucerne and Chur (1660-1700)

The astonishing family career of the Casatis contradicts widespread impressions of early modern diplomacy. This monograph explains how a Spanish-Milanese diplomatic dynasty shrewdly managed, using a highly complex network of confessional, social and cultural connections, to concentrate and deploy its resources upon key actors, and put itself beyond competition from potential challengers. 
“Other than following God and their own self-interest, this people knows no further impulse,” was the devastating judgment of Alfonso Casati in 1674 concerning the Swiss Confederates. The diplomats nonetheless had to accommodate the needs of these local hosts, or lose their trust and that of their royal employer, the Spanish king. In order to fulfill the demands placed upon him as a diplomat, Alfonso Casati, like most envoys in early modern Europe, periodically reached into his own pockets. In contrast to many contemporaries, however, he did not respond to the costly requirements of the job by seeking to be relieved of his duties. On the contrary, he laid the ground for ensuring that his own son became the fourth generation representative in a nearly continuous position held by the same family. 
Tapping extensive source materials which are interpreted from the perspective of various historical actors, this study not only reconstructs the position and influence of an extraordinary diplomatic family, but also shines new light on a colorful history of patronage, corruption and politics in the external relations of the Confederacy and Graubünden.

Abstract

As a result of the death of Duke Charles the Bold of Burgundy and the marriage of his only daughter Mary to Maximilian, the heir of Emperor Frederick III, the economically and culturally prospering lands of Flanders and Brabant became hereditary possessions of the Habsburgs. With this, the foundations for the Habsburgs's hegemony were laid. This dynastic project was for about 10 years (1467-1477) in the spotlight of Emperor Frederick's III diplomatic efforts and that with mixed results. Many documents regarding those negotiations are preserved in the Habsburg "Hausarchiv", now the "Haus-, Hof- und Staatsarchiv" in Vienna. Documents only up to the year 1469 have been published in the "Regesta Imperii - Regesten Friedrichs III." so far. Therefore, in the present publication the systematic collection and registration of charters as well as letters of this important emperor is continued up to the year 1475. As a fundamental edition of sources this publication provides a basis for further research questions concerning the late Middle Ages. The presented material serves as a foundation for studies of political communication in the late Middle Ages, e.g. the relationship between Emperor Frederick III and Duke Charles of Burgundy. The material can provide a basis for a study of the differences and similarities of the diplomacy of two differently developed cultural spheres in the late Middle Ages. Additionally, the formal and compositional analyses of diplomatic writings provide information about the various media of diplomatic communication, the objectives, possibilities and success of diplomatic efforts. An investigation of the actors occurring in these areas can reveal the institutional structure, which enabled the development of networks of aristocratic, civic and legally trained elites. Another basic topic of the provided documents is Emperor Frederick's III territorial activity especially in the years 1470 to 1473, when the emperor primarily stayed in his hereditary lands. There he was faced with areas of conflict clearly represented in the sources. Frederick's definition of his role as the head of the Habsburg house is illustrated by his diplomatic relationship to his cousin Sigmund. Among many other topics, also Frederick's role as the supreme judge of the empire becomes evident in the present sources, especially by judicial summons and judgments of the "Kammergericht" (supreme court), which was pledged to Archbishop Adolf of Mainz at that time.

Abstract

This volume of abstracts of charters Emperor Frederick´s III in the series Regesta Imperii focusses on the last decade of his rule, in particular on the years between 1483 and 1488. They are based on the original charters in the Allgemeine Urkundenreihe and Familienurkunden in the Haus-, Hof- und Staatsarchiv in Vienna and its collections of copies of those charters that have not come down to us in the original, all of which serve to illustrate a number of major historical aspects: Defension of hereditary territories against the Hungarian King Matthias Corvinus, consolidation of the empire in the West, the joint rule of the Emperor and his son Maximilian I.

Abstract

Kulturdialog, Interkultureller Dialog, Islamdialog, Transformationsdialog - wer spricht da eigentlich mit wem und vor allem wie? Vom 11. September 2001 bis zu den Umbrüchen in der arabischen Welt 2011 gewährt das Buch spannende und ausführliche Einblicke in das Dialogverständnis und die Diskurspraxis der deutschen Auswärtigen Kultur- und Bildungspolitik. Anhand der vom Autor geführten Interviews mit Vertretern vom Auswärtigen Amt, dem DAAD und dem Goethe-Institut wird die Diplomatensprache in bislang einmaliger Form interdisziplinär unter die philologische Lupe genommen. Vorschläge für einen künftigen Dialog im historisch wie gegenwärtig hochdynamischen Mittelmeerraum ergänzen die Analysen.
