Section 001 Marriage and Married Life in Germany in the Late Middle Ages and in the Renaissance.
No German required. Marriage is one of the most central institutions in human societies. Contrary to previous generations, however, today we are beginning to look upon marriage as an institution subject to historic change. In the union of husband and wife gender relations are defined, reenacted and, at the same time, constantly reconstructed. But how was the female sphere defined in the fifteenth century? Did the Reformation affect society's understanding of matrimony? What was married life like in a world where two out of four children were likely to die? Where, and when, do we encounter love-matches? We will explore marriage discourse and policies in a culturally well-defined context, the German-speaking countries between ca. 1350 and 1600. By examining the depiction of marriage in major literature of the age as well as in historiography we will come to a more complex understanding of what marriage was supposed to be and what it really meant.
