Flesh and Spirit: Private Life in Early Modern Germany by Steven Ozment

As he did in his much praised and highly successful The Burgermeisters Daughter, Steven Ozment analyzes and weaves together primary sources to create a compelling account of German life in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. From private papers and archives -- account books, letters, legal records, journals -- emerge fascinating stories rescued from history: the complicated courtship dance of two politically prominent families; the joy of parenthood for a middle-aged couple when, after losing their first nine infants, a child survives; the difficulty a widowed mother has restraining her eldest sons expenses as he studies in Italy; the challenges faced by a Lutheran pastor negotiating the Churchs bitter factionalism; and a Protestant teenager coping in Catholic Louvain.
