Court life in early modern Germany took place within different media settings. In the book market, commercially orientated publishers sold compilations dealing with the ceremonies, genealogies and staff directories of the different courts and dynasties. They drew on the local publications which were produced on behalf of, and at the expense of, the different courts. Both types of printed material dealt with the same subject matter, but they belonged to totally separate public spheres and were subject to distinct economic parameters. They differed from yet another, more basic media type, i.e. personal interaction at court, predicated on the presence of the people involved. The resulting changes of medium, from interaction to official court publications, and further to commercial compilations, play a key role in the overall understanding of communication within and between the courts. This understanding is also helpful in assessing the specific nature and success of the publications issued by the court of Sachsen-Gotha.
