Abstract

One of the most modern libraries in Germany today, the KIT Library of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) already looks back on a 175-year long tradition. For the first time, this book combines a depiction of the evolution of the library of the ""Polytechnische Schule"" (polytechnic institute) to the university library in combination with the development of the ""Literaturabteilung"" (literature department) of the ""Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe"" (Karlsruhe Research Centre). From these historic roots has grown a high-performance service center for information and communication media. The present survey of the library history shows how innovation has become a tradition at KIT-Library.

Abstract

The remarkably high number of medieval sources on the history of Austrian Jews allows for insights into the economic, legal, and social standing of the Jews as well as into how the Christian environment treated them. The sources published in this volume show the decline in the economic and legal position of the Jews; while they were largely safe from open persecution, they were subjected to more and more restrictions that aimed at mere financial exploitation. In addition to that, the sources provide insights into the everyday interaction of Jews with the Christian majority.

Abstract

The work at hand explores the successive chronometrisation of public space using the example of Viennas public clocks from the middle of the 19th century until today.The need for knowing the exact time steadily increased since the middle of the 19th century. As two centuries ago the clocks had only hour hands, the minute hands soon became essential. Industrialisation, urbanisation, but primarily the rapid development of the railroading promoted the trend towards the modern time management of the society. Schedules demanded a higher precision of time specification; circulations of goods and persons had to be adjusted to each other; professional and private activities became standardised, tacted and adjusted to the abstract rhythm of the clocks. The knowledge about the social and economic value of time became a central criterion for the level of western civilisation.Especially the members of the middle-class got more and more used to a chronometer. It was a high goodness for them to use their time as efficient as possible. Pocket watches and wrist watches became familiar and also the number of public clocks continously increased. Especially the more and more complex organised cities became pioneers in the sphere of public timepiece.The work at hand explores, for the first time in the German-speaking historical research, the successive chronometrisation of public space using the example of Vienna from the middle of the 19th century until today. On the one hand it deals with the “exterior chronometrisation“, that is the visible aggregation of the infrastructure of time and the construction of different kinds of clocks. Spatial, architectural and design related aspects were argued, contexts of technical history as the search for the ideal drive system and of the political and representative functions of public clocks were discussed. On the other hand it deals with the “interior chronometrisation“ which means social, psychological and cultural aspects of the perception of time and their contextualisation in phenomena of scaling and standardisation on a local basis to a world scale.The actual trend of visualising public time to the split second marks the (temporary) end of the development which shows the speedup of all areas of life in a visible and sensible way.

Abstract

Von der Reformation bis ins 20. Jahrhundert prallten in Ostmitteleuropa religiöse und politische Ordnungen aufeinander. Die Konfessionen strebten oft nach Dominanz und stellten somit die existierenden Herrschaftsverhältnisse infrage. Die Konkurrenz zwischen religiösen Gemeinschaften gefährdete das soziale und politische Gefüge. Die Eliten der Region sahen sich vor dringende Probleme gestellt: Wie sollten sie mit der religiösen Heterogenität umgehen? Waren Kirchenunionen und Religionsgespräche realistische Lösungen? Welche politischen Foren und Rechtsinstrumente konnten sie bemühen, um trotz religiöser Feindschaften den nötige sozialen und politischen Zusammenhalt zu gewährleisten? Wie konnten sie Identitäten stiften, die die nationale Gemeinschaft mit der Konfession in Einklang bringen würden, der sie eine führende Rolle zuerkannten? Konkurrierende Ordnungen nimmt Verschränkungen zwischen Religion, Staat und Nation in Vormoderne und Moderne in den Blick. Durch den Fokus auf politisch-religiöse Kämpfe und rivalisierende Ordnungsbestrebungen eröffnet der Sammelband Perspektiven für einen epochenübergreifenden Vergleich.

Abstract

Human societies are highly exposed to climate and weather conditions.. This applies in particular to the pre-industrial period. This volume presents a comprehensive and detailed climate reconstruction for the area of the Burgundian Low Countries in the 15th century. The reconstruction consists of two parts. Detailed weather descriptions from contemporary sources are complemented by systematised indices of seasonal temperature and precipitation patterns. The climate reconstruction serves as the basis for research on the impact of the weather on the economy of the Burgundian Low Countries. For the late Middle Ages grain prices are a very reliable economic indicator. Grain, an indispensable staple food and important merchandise, is directly exposed to the weather for the major part of the year. Statistical analyses of the price development of different grains in conjunction with the seasonal climate indices show a close interlinkage of the two variables. However, climate condition is only one of many factors impacting on grain price; the other factors are also presented and discussed in detail.&#xD;Finally, the analysis of the development of grain prices reveals three phases of clearly increased prices in the 15th century: during the second half of the 1430s, at the beginning of the 1480s and during the last years of the 1480s until the beginning of the 1490s. The reasons for these grain price peaks, including weather conditions but also economic, political and other factors are outlined in the volume.
