The awareness that the territory of today's canton of Graubünden was never an isolated world in itself, but rather its history is strongly influenced by the diverse connections to its European environment
Over the past two decades, the awareness that the territory of today's canton of Graubünden was never an isolated world in itself, but whose history was strongly influenced by the diverse connections to its European environment, has begun to gain acceptance. But what exactly did such relationships look like and how did they work? How did the different relationships influence each other and how were they perceived within Graubünden?
The historian Flurina Camenisch tells about the relationships between Count Georg von Werdenberg-Sargans, who lived in Sargans and Domleschg, at the courts of Innsbruck, Munich, Stuttgart and Milan. With reference to her dissertation project "Credits, communication, corruption - cross-border links in late medieval Graubünden", she also reports on the challenges of archival research abroad and on what it is like to deal with a topic that is relevant in Switzerland was very unpopular for a long time: the nobility.
