Abstract

Since 2014, the German city of Constance has organised a four year celebration to commemorate the Council of Constance 600 years ago. The last year, 2018, will be devoted to Oswald von Wolkenstein.This is an appropriate occasion for the Oswald von Wolkenstein-Gesellschaft to revive the memory of this historic event in the city of Constance and to elucidate the involvement of the knight and singer Oswald von Wolkenstein in the Council of Constance.
