Chapter Summary

The academic peregrination with a detailed itinerary is an integral part of the necrology of Protestant pastors and thus a first-class source for the formation of early modern history. The tripartite division of the funeral sermon is in the 17th century rule. An introductory dedication followed the Christian funeral sermon, followed by the personal, the information on the career of the deceased. Funeral sermons were given by pastors, who were more closely related to the deceased preacher. Although Gdansk in the early modern period was one of the most populous cities of the German, it was on the periphery of German settlement area and was formally the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. This special status required all the more a close relationship with the Holy Roman Empire and the intellectual Western Europe. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Christian funeral sermon; early modern history; Gdansk; German settlement area; holy Roman empire
