Ivette Nuckel (Hg.)

Faule Müßiggänger und “rechte” Arme.

Armen- und Bettelordnungen Bremens, Lübecks, Lüneburgs und Oldenburgs des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts.

This source edition is intended to provide access to the poor and begging ordinances of the Low German cities of Bremen, Lübeck, Lüneburg and Oldenburg in the 16th and 17th centuries. They defined the different types of poor and beggars, which were considered needy and which were not, and how to deal with them in terms of Christian doctrine and municipal organization.
With their New High German translations, the sources in this edition become usable also for research circles that are not familiar with the Middle Low German spelling. Thus, this source edition offers a new basis for further research in the field of poor and alms relief in the late Middle Ages and early modern period.
