Abstract

Late medieval Nürnberg is a hub of artistic activity: not only the ‘Meistersinger’ and the bawdy humour of the Fastnachtspiele characterize its written output but even more the literature written in and for the monasteries. The session will put into focus some of the lesser known protagonists as well as connecting to the celebrities of the day as Albrecht Dürer.
