The day was dedicated to the topic ‘Reformation and print’. In the morning, Dr Matthias Meinhardt guided the Fellows through the Reformation Research Library (Reformationsgeschichtliche Forschungsbibliothek) and explained the collection profile of the library and the possibilities for research. As preparations for the following Guest Lecture, he presented prints of the Sixteenth Century.
Back at the Leucorea, Prof. Dr. Thomas Kaufmann (University of Göttingen) introduced the Fellows to his research on Reformation and print and presented Luther’s tract to the Christian nobility from 1520 as an example. The same topic was pursued by Student Fellow Kate Shore (Oxford University), but now using the example of German prints on England from the second half of the Sixteenth Century.
