Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Strangers and Misfits contains the table of contents, a list of figures and the acknowledgements. The book examines how rulers in early modern Europe used banishment to punish and purge deviants and outsiders, as well as how these convicts-vagrants, laborers, and citizens alike-reacted to their expulsion, through an analysis of judicial expulsion practices in sixteenth-century Ulm. Investigation of banishment sentencing in one south German imperial city elucidates the operation of official expulsion, shedding light on the shared nature of civic norms, the purgation of offenders who failed to conform to these communal mores, and the role of expulsion rituals in early modern power relations.

Keywords:banishment; early modern Europe; misfits; strangers
