The Imperial Diet of Regensburg, 1576

The Imperial Diet in Regensburg, 1576

From June to October 1576, Emperor Maximilian II and more than 200 representatives of the Reichsstände discussed and decided on the political fate of (Eastern) Central Europe in Regensburg. Envoys from (almost) all over Europe took this as an opportunity to go to Lower Bavaria as well. They made the Reichstag a place of European politics. But not only "politicians" made their way to the imperial city on the Danube, but also numerous subjects, in order to make themselves known to the emperor and the empire with their very individual concerns.

This event has left a great deal of written documentation. The project of the Historical Commission at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences has set itself the goal of publishing it scientifically in a new way. Together with the Center for Information Modelling at the University of Graz, she is therefore working on a hybrid edition that will make all facets of the complex communicative events in Regensburg accessible.
