About this title:

Synopsis:

One of the most important projects currently under way in contemporary studies of the early modern period is the research and editorial project on the Fruitful Society (Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft). The Society was founded in Weimar in 1617, and until 1650 it was led from Köthen and continued its formal existence until 1680. As the only German learned society during the 17th century, the Fruitful Society drew on the participation of princes, noblemen, councilors, military leaders, academics, and poets. Together, they formed a leadership class to launch a national German culture that was no longer defined by the court or by religious, class, governmental, or regional boundaries. They envisaged the development of a new German culture primarily aimed at the goals of creating a new, sophisticated social sensibility molded in the spirit of the Renaissance, of cultivating the German mother tongue, and of generating universal benefits from all knowledge and action. Within the scope of this program, which aimed to bring Germany on par with the cultural achievements of its European neighbors, the Society, as a unique association of its kind in the Baroque period, achieved national and international attention. For the first time, this critical edition brings together virtually all of the correspondence undertaken in connection with the activities of the Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft (FG), as well as enclosed documents, the most important academic studies, and other key texts. It documents the visual expressions of the Society's life and testimonials from its historical environment. The edition is systematically divided into two series (I: Letters, Enclosures, and Academic Work; II: Documents and portrayals) as well as three chronological sections (A: Köthen [1617-1650]), B: Weimar [1651-1662], C: Halle [1663/67-1680]).

Book Description Walter De Gmbh Gruyter Aug 2013, 2013. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Der Band trägt die Überlieferung der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft (FG) der Jahre 1641 - 1643 zusammen. Im Schatten des Krieges weitet sich die Diskussion über die deutsche Grammatik zu Fragen der Aussprache, Orthographie, Lexik und Poetik des Deutschen aus. Übersetzungsprojekte (wie Corneilles Cid oder Pallavicinos Il divorzio celeste), eine aktivierte Köthener Offizin und engagierte Neumitglieder wie Buchner, Gueintz, Harsdörffer und Schottelius lassen die Gesellschaft in der Außendarstellung wie in der inneren Debattenkultur Kontur gewinnen. Dabei kommen mit der Impresistik, den Mitgliederwappen und der Subskription fruchtbringerischer Werke, v.a. des Gesellschaftsbuches von 1646, auch Formen der Selbstdarstellung zum Tragen. Einige Briefe richten den Blick zurück in die Anfangsjahre der FG. Der Welfenhof zu Wolfenbüttel etabliert sich als zweites Zentrum der FG, auch aufgrund des zwischen J. V. Andreae und Herzog August d. J. geführten Briefwechsels, sowie einer d'Urfé-Adaption durch Hzn. Sophia Elisabeth. Eine konfessionspolitisch interessante höfische Martinsfeier im ernestinischen Gotha beschließt den Band. 880 pp. Deutsch. Seller Inventory # 9783110322941
