It offers a new view on the development of an urban culture of writing in one of the major cities of late medieval Europe. The chapter presents the history of extensive tradition of the Augsburg as generations of urban authorities were dependent on written records, which in turn created the need for archiving. The textualisation of a complex process recognizes important areas of life and part of urban society in different time and intensity. The driving force of textualisation in the late Middle Ages fulfils the growing need for control and auditability. The original text of the chapter is in German.
