Freiburg and the Breisgau

Town-Country Relations in the Age of Reformation and Peasants' War

Tom Scott

A Clarendon Press Publication

This regional study examines the declining fortunes of Freiburg, a craft town on the upper Rhine and its relations with the surrounding Breisgau village communities. Focusing on the troubled period from 1450 to 1530, the book covers the territorial expansion of Freiburg that threatened the surrounding Breisgau villages and pitted burgher against peasant in a struggle for economic survival.
