The dissemination of English republican works and ideas in Germany
Ideas have always travelled across borders. An example is the transmission of 17th century English republican ideas in the German lands before the revolution of 1848-1849. The EU-funded ERITNet project will investigate the distribution, dissemination and reception of English republican works in Germany in a variety of languages, including English, Latin and French in addition to German. Specifically, this transnational and multilingual project will focus on how printed works were translated, edited and rewritten for new contexts and audiences (in this case, German society from the later 17th century to the Vormärz period that preceded the 1848 March Revolution in the states of the German Confederation).
