Chapter Summary

This index section presents the list of names, terms and concepts of strangers and misfits. This book titled Strangers and Misfits examines the role of banishment in sixteenth-century Ulm, an important south German city-state, using the town's experience to uncover how early modern magistrates used expulsion to regulate and reorder society. This investigation sheds new light on the application of authority, the intersection between official disciplinary efforts and customary behavioral norms, and the function of public expulsion in displaying and defending social hierarchies, issues central to our historical understanding of the period.

Keywords:misfits; south German city; strangers
