ChronicledMoreThe story of conflict in an island community offers a valuable case study for the analysis of early modern German political culture. Investigations range from interpersonal relations to dynamics of civic church and imperial government. Chronicled throughout are the interactions of two opposing principles in modern society secular versus spiritual and public versus private. These are found to operate both discursively and institutionally, and are deployed to help establish sovereign authority (Obrigkeit), as well as to articulate resistance in the form of bourgeois republican ideology.
