Exploring the methodologies of cultural transmission in early modern Germany, influenced by the scholarship of H.C. Erik Midelfort, this volume brings together a broad range of essays from leading European and North American scholars. By examining the ways in which people expected ideas to influence others, where influenced themselves, and the unexpected ways that ideas could permeate through society, the volume as a whole adds significant features to our conceptual map of life in early modern Europe.
