Salzburg, the residential city and seat of the archbishop and thus sovereign, was characterized in the (late) Middle Ages by a flourishing urban life with far-reaching trade relations and close ties with the princely court and the local monasteries. This session focusses on the efforts of forming structures of social, economical, and cultural relationships and networks ranging from the prosperous and cultural highstanding monastery of St Peter, the aspiring bourgeoisie, and the intertwined leading families, exemplified by the Keutzl family, to the famous Monk of Salzburg as a literary networker between European traditions.
