Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of places relevant to the critical assessment of research on autobiographical writing to date. The book focuses on the self narratives of the Hessian peasant Caspar Preis, the Franconian prophetess Anna Vetter, the Alsatian pewterer Augustin Güntzer, the Ulm architect Joseph Furttenbach and the Jewish tradeswoman Glückel von Hameln. Thomas Platter's autobiography probably is one of the most widely known autobiographical texts of the sixteenth century, at least in Western historiography.

Keywords: autobiographical writing; Hessian peasant Caspar Preis; Thomas Platter
