THE FUGGERS OF AUGSBURG: PURSUING WEALTH AND HONOR IN RENAISSANCE GERMANY. Mark Haberlein. University of Virginia Press, Charlottesville, 2012. 304 pp. with 21 ills. 23 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780813932446 In English.
Publisher's description: As the wealthiest German merchant family of the sixteenth century, the Fuggers have attracted wide scholarly attention. In contrast to the other famous merchant family of the period, the Medici of Florence, however, no English-language work on them has been available until now. The Fuggers of Augsburg offers a concise and engaging overview that builds on the latest scholarly literature and the author's own work on sixteenth-century merchant capitalism... The book also covers the political, social, and cultural roles of the Fuggers: their patronage of Renaissance artists, the founding of the largest social housing project of its time, their support of Catholicism in a city that largely turned Protestant during the Reformation, and their rise from urban merchants to imperial counts and feudal lords.
