Abstract

Three members of the Milan-born Angielini family have bequeathed plans and views of fortified places at the border to the Ottoman Empire around 1570, amongst them three maps of Vienna. This basis serves for an analysis of Vienna’s development into a fortress city. Written sources and archaeological evidence are also used, as are insights from environmental history. Early modern fortress-construction in theory and practice and the cartographic documentation of the Hungarian area and Vienna, both seen in a supraregional context, compose further important chapters of the book.

Abstract

Bernhard Georg Andermüller (1644-1717), envoy of Dessau, and Michel Herstal de la Tache drew fascinating maps/plans of early modern Vienna. We see on the one hand the working environments of an early modern envoy on these plan but also the fortification of the town and the suburbs around 1700 can still be clearly felt.

Abstract

Wie erklärt sich Wirtschaftserfolg? Dieser Frage geht Beat Fumasoli mit Blick auf die gewerbliche Exportwirtschaft von oberdeutschen Städten im Spätmittelalter nach. Der oberdeutsche Wirtschaftsraum gewann besonders ab dem 14. Jahrhundert stark an Bedeutung – seine zentrale Lage in der Mitte Europas ermöglichte einen weit ausgreifenden Exporthandel in alle Himmelsrichtungen. Mit Augsburg, Basel, Freiburg im Üechtland, Nördlingen, Nürnberg, Passau, Ravensburg, Regensburg, Schwäbisch Gmünd, Speyer, St. Gallen und Wangen im Allgäu betrachtet Fumasoli gut ein Fünftel der oberdeutschen Städte mit Exportgewerbe und unterzieht sie einem systematischen Vergleich. Dieser erstreckt sich auf alle potenziell relevanten Einflussfaktoren des exportgewerblichen Wirtschaftserfolgs: von den Rahmenbedingungen für Produktion und Handel bis hin zu den Organisations- und Absatzstrategien der Wirtschaftsakteure und ihrer Kooperation in einem hochgradig arbeitsteiligen Gesamtsystem.

Abstract

The voluminous publication edits 203 such items covering all of the Austrian territories from the Late Middle Ages to the 19th century. Hospital rules, instructions for hospital staff, job descriptions, special rules as, for example, prayer orders and dietaries, but also inventories were meant to channel the way of life of inmates and staff. Each of the edited sources is accompanied by a survey on the history of the hospital and a comment contextualising the contents, which necessitated pioneering archival research in many cases where no serious scholarly treatment of the hospitals’ history was available.

Abstract

The work at hand explores the successive chronometrisation of public space using the example of Viennas public clocks from the middle of the 19th century until today.The need for knowing the exact time steadily increased since the middle of the 19th century. As two centuries ago the clocks had only hour hands, the minute hands soon became essential. Industrialisation, urbanisation, but primarily the rapid development of the railroading promoted the trend towards the modern time management of the society. Schedules demanded a higher precision of time specification; circulations of goods and persons had to be adjusted to each other; professional and private activities became standardised, tacted and adjusted to the abstract rhythm of the clocks. The knowledge about the social and economic value of time became a central criterion for the level of western civilisation. Especially the members of the middle-class got more and more used to a chronometer. It was a high goodness for them to use their time as efficient as possible. Pocket watches and wrist watches became familiar and also the number of public clocks continously increased. Especially the more and more complex organised cities became pioneers in the sphere of public timepiece. The work at hand explores, for the first time in the German-speaking historical research, the successive chronometrisation of public space using the example of Vienna from the middle of the 19th century until today. On the one hand it deals with the “exterior chronometrisation“, that is the visible aggregation of the infrastructure of time and the construction of different kinds of clocks. Spatial, architectural and design related aspects were argued, contexts of technical history as the search for the ideal drive system and of the political and representative functions of public clocks were discussed. On the other hand it deals with the “interior chronometrisation“ which means social, psychological and cultural aspects of the perception of time and their contextualisation in phenomena of scaling and standardisation on a local basis to a world scale. The actual trend of visualising public time to the split second marks the (temporary) end of the development which shows the speedup of all areas of life in a visible and sensible way.

Abstract

This book deals with the housing- and settlement-policy of the authoritarian Austrian Corporate State (Staendestaat) in Vienna between 1934 and 1938. National and international dialogues led to building strategies for a car-friendly city. Different types of flats, settlements and administration buildings will be shown, as well as planned monumental buildings of the unity party Fatherland Front (Vaterlaendische Front).
