Center for Global Studies

Inventory: 

The Center for Global Studies (CGS) is part of the Walter Benjamin Kollegs of the Faculty of Philosophy & History of the University of Bern. It is a resarch center that addresses current and historical processes of the interweaving and disentangling of human areas of life over large geographical distances and different cultural contexts. The research interests of the center are aligned upon the political, social and cultural aspects of these developments, and on economic and environmental influences.

Zwingliana was founded in 1897 as an academic journal by the Zwingli Society and it contains scientific contributions about Huldrych Zwingli and the Swiss Reformation. The website provides free access to its issues with a three year delay.

Carolingian Culture at Reichenau & St. Gall

This website presents digital versions of the Plan of St. Gall and the ninth-century library collections of the monasteries of Reichenau and St. Gall.

The St. Gall Monastery Plan is the earliest preserved and most extraordinary visualization of a building complex produced in the Middle Ages. Ever since the Plan was created at the monastery of Reichenau in the period 819-26 A.D., it has been preserved in the Monastic Library of St. Gall.

This site will provide access to the results of a long-term project of creating an extensive data base to aid research into the Plan and Carolingian monastic culture. Besides a variety of digital representations of the Plan itself, the site includes a graphic representation of how the Plan was physically made, detailed information on each of the elements of the Plan, and transcriptions and translations of its inscriptions. In addition, the site contains resources for understanding the material culture context of the Plan. A series of extensive data bases include one presenting physical objects found across Europe that add to our understanding of Carolingian monasticism, one devoted to the terminology of Carolingian material culture, descriptions of all known Carolingian religious edifices, and an extensive bibliography on both the Plan itself and Carolingian monastic culture generally.

Königsfelden Convent Church

Inventory: 

The colourful church windows are among the highlights of Late Medieaval European glass-painting.
