Flugschriften des 16. Jahrhunderts
Part I (1501-1530) contains 5,000 German and Latin pamphlets printed in the Holy Roman
Empire. They are primarily concerned with the early Reformation movement and its
propaganda, with the Peasants' War, the threat presented by the expansion of the Turks
and with the various conflicts among the Western European countries.
Part II (1531-1600) now contains more than 4000 pamphlets and is supplemented on an annual basis. This part deals with a broad spectrum
of themes: the political and military conflicts in Europe such as the Turkish wars, the revolt of
the Netherlands, the persecution of French protestants, the status of Calvinists and
Zwinglians in the Holy Roman Empire, the Council of Trent, the Anabaptist Kingdom of Münster,
the Schmalkaldic War and the Interim, propaganda against the papacy and the Jesuits,
intra-Protestant theological quarrels, the building of confessional networks, witch-hunting,
anti-Jewish polemics and more.
