France’s political resurgence in the final stages of the Hundred Years’ War, the visionary reform debates at the Council of Basel, early French humanism, the disputes about precedence among the rulers at imperial diets and councils: Heribert Müller studies the protagonists behind these events, particularly the new social group of “learned councillors,” who became indispensable everywhere in Western Europe at the end of the Middle Ages as legal experts and theologians, mediators and diplomats. His essays on France, Burgundy and the Empire explorethe origins of the modern state, provide insights into the political and personal ties among these powers and show the interdependence of European history in the conciliar epoch of the 15th century.


Spatmittelalter, Humanismus, Reformation No. 56
