Modern historical urban research in Germany is no more separating the town – as a legal body sharply distinguished from everything else – from the countryside surrounding it. Multiple relations on very different levels can be traced between the two spheres of life – not always this close interaction was peaceful. Several forms and manifestations of violence can be analysed. In this second part of the session, the problem of legal and everyday violence is taken up, but the focus lies mostly on the town (the relationship between different towns and inner-urban violence and the burgers in the direct urban environment.
