3: Nuremberg and the Politics of Romanticism
The city of artist
Albrecht Durer and shoemaker-cum-poet Hans Sachs is both famous and infamous.
Made famous by Wagner's opera Die Meistersinger and notorious by Hitler's Nazi Party rallies, it was devastated by Allied bombing in the Second
World War, and its medieval fabric only partially reconstructed. How far is
Romanticism in Nuremberg inescapably political?
Philip Brady compares the romantic and the political idyll, with cultural historian Professor Hermann Glaser.
