Dealing with historical sources and research literature; application of methods from auxiliary sciences of history; oral and written presentation; critical discussion

The structure and development of the “Holy Roman Empire” (or in short: “Old Empire”) belong to the key topics of early modern history. Scholarly efforts to understand this complex formation have generated both methodical innovations and controversies of interpretation over the last decades. Such advances and debates inspire the course. With regard to institutions, constitutional practice and political culture, it explores central problems of the Empire’s history, focussing on research questions and primary sources.

Reading and discussion of sources and secondary literature; thematic presentations; group work
