[Minstrels according to Late Medieval German Legal Sources.]
This study analyzes minstrels as a group that can be identified in late medieval legal sources, using a white range of archival material including sources from feudal law, municipal law, canon law, and the so-called Weistümer. It proves the heterogeneity of „the“ minstrels and their existence between ecclestiastical culture and vernacular mundane life. This study also investigates the position of the minstrels in courtly and municipal festive culture as well as their increasing settledness in the late middle ages and their self-organisation.
