Princes and Territories in Medieval Germany Paperback - 2004

by Benjamin Arnold


From the publisher

This book addresses the most important question in pre-modern German political history: why did a multiplicity of states and territories emerge by the end of the Middle Ages instead of an incipient 'nation state' under the crown? The answer is found not in the supposed failures of German kingship, but instead in the creative aristocratic successes of the secular dynasties and princes of the Church. We see how their collective efforts in the centuries after 1050 added up to a more markedly territorial structure of regional power, already emerging by the thirteenth century as a result of their endeavours in the economy, internal and external colonization, and the establishment of new castles, towns, monasteries and communications; in local, ecclesiastical and imperial law, and the jurisdictional reform which they imposed in their regions; and in the uses of dynastic politics, including feuds as well as alliances, inheritance and partition.

First line

In this chapter and the next it is proposed to present the German princes as a social order or group in their complex relationship with their suzerain and overlord, the western Roman emperor.

From the rear cover

This book aims to provide a comprehensive answer to the most important question in pre-modern German political history: why did a multiplicity of states and territories emerge by the end of the Middle Ages instead of an incipient 'nation state' under the crown? This book shows clearly why responsibility for this cannot be laid upon the supposed failures of German kingship, which actually encouraged through its own legislation the expansions and reform of princely jurisdiction and governing authority in the crucial twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
