Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Literature and the arts play a central role in shaping public discourse, as can be demonstrated in German literature from Nürnberg at the close of the Thirty Years' War. Juxtaposing the fictitious beast Kriegs-Rhinoceros to establish the social imaginary of German-speaking lands at the time, the following case study of Johann Vogel's Meditationes emblematicae de restaurata pace Germaniae = Sinnebilder von dem widergebrachten Teutschen Frieden (1649) shows how emblems functioned as instruments of peace during the negotiations at Nürnberg.
