Description:

For the first time, this Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the
object, the history, the theoretical academic prerequisites and the present
state of research into chancery language. The main focus is on the written
language of the municipal, princely and imperial chanceries in the Late
Middle High and Early New High German periods in Central, Eastern and
South-Eastern Europe and in Baltic countries and Scandinavia.

This readable and problem-oriented account gives both a survey of research
findings and an insight into the main topical research areas.
