The Corporate World of Early Modern Europe: What Was IT?

Guild statues provide valuable information on the corporate culture of early modern Europe. These sources shed light on the life of pre-industrial entrepreneurs. How did premodern people understand competition and fair business practices? Where was the divide between public and private? And how did their ideas shape the legal and urban culture of early modern Europe? The project aims to answer the questions through the analysis of primary sources in the context of the social, political, and religious circumstances of early modern Europe.
