The volume brings together twelve texts devoted to Early Modern Print Culture in Central Europe. The idea behind it is to discuss the development and complexities inherent in the printing of books — an initially revolutionary way of building up international communication networks in this important region. An international group of researchers involved in the project takes on board a wide array of subjects ranging from the first books printed at the end of the 15th century in Central Europe (the first printing press in the region was established in 1473 in Cracow, Poland), through the contacts between Western, Central and Eastern Europe thriving in the 16th and 17th centuries, to the books about newly emergent sciences in the 18th century. Bringing in their various interests and perspectives, the contributors illuminate the vast chronological scope and undeniable variety of print culture in Early Modern Central Europe.

__Context and rationale__
International research has little to say about the development of early modern print culture in Central
Europe. Poland for instance is mentioned just once in the latest edition of Elisabeth Eisenstein’s
classic study The Printing Revolution in Early Modern Europe (2005), and other parts of Central
Europe are not mentioned at all. Nevertheless, the first printing press in Central Europe was
established in 1473 in Cracow (Poland) and in the next decades presses were put into operation
particularly in university towns. Although at the beginning these presses produced books in Latin, texts
in vernacular languages appeared from the early sixteenth century onward as a result of the
Protestant Reformation. Although there is a rich historiography on this topic in various countries in the
region, research literature is unfortunately not easily accessible to an international public because of
language barriers. The seminar is aimed at bringing together scholars in the field of print culture to
discuss the latest developments in their discipline against the background recent international
research on print culture. Keynote lectures by senior scholars will be combined with presentations by
younger scholars. The outcome of the seminar will be a collection of papers, but also forging contacts
to set up new collaborative research projects.
