Introduction

In the course of my work at the Institute of Bavarian History at the University of Munich, I have developed the following bibliography, which is intended as a working aid for international scholars and students. It covers the range of English-language publications on Bavarian history but does not claim to be complete. Suggestions to supplement and complete the bibliography are welcome and can be submitted via the feedback form at the end of this text.

The bibliography adheres to the following guidelines:

  • The bibliography systematically considers academic publications from 1968 to 2018 in addition to especially significant publications outside of this period.
  • Studies on all areas and regions within the present Free State of Bavaria are recorded, regardless of their territorial affiliation in the period under consideration. Therefore, the regions Upper and Lower Bavaria, Franconia, Upper Palatinate, and Bavarian Swabia are included, whereas the former Rhenish Palatinate is not.
  • The publications included focus specifically on Bavarian history; studies which only briefly or incidentally deal with historical events in Bavaria are not included.
  • The list does not include research on events that took place in Bavaria but are not inherently linked to Bavarian history (e.g., Nuremberg Trials, Munich Agreement, etc.).
  • Titles of publications which do not clearly indicate how the study is related to Bavarian history are expanded to include the corresponding information in square brackets.
  • Doctoral dissertations on Bavarian history are marked with the abbreviation “PhD.”
  • In order to ensure better clarity, titles are classified by epoch, except in the case of the categories “Theory and Methodology” and “Source Editions.”

Some general remarks: Most of the works listed were originally written in English; little German-language research in these fields is currently available in English translation. The large number of studies on the early modern era is also particularly striking. The publications identified deal mainly with the following fields of research:

  • Political history of Bavaria and the territories that have merged into Bavaria
  • History of religion and church history: monasteries, Reformation and confessionalization, Jewish history
  • Economic history: guilds, trading houses and trade relations, history of large enterprises
  • History of the free imperial cities, in particular: Augsburg, Nuremberg, Regensburg
  • Cultural and art history (e.g., Dürer, Munich around 1900)
  • International networks (e.g., relations with other countries)
  • History of education and schools (especially in the nineteenth century)
  • Military and war history
  • Superstitions and witch-hunts
  • Denazification after World War II
