The Muenster Heritage

Annette von Droste-Hülshoff

Annette von Droste-Hülshoff is still one of the most important women in the history of German literature. She was one of the few women in the premodern period, who actively produced literature at a very high level. Her work was received exceptionally strong and she became well accepted as a role model especially for female writers. In addition, Droste Hülshoff's work and her life became subject of many scientific and literary products. | read more: Our Local Poet: Annette von Droste-Hülshoff

Towards the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest

XVII, XVIII, XVIIII Roman Legions and Germanic Tribes

Initial Situation

In 51 BC, the Romans conquered Gaul and expanded the external borders of the Empire to the Rhine. The commander Julius Caesar declared the Rhine as the new border.
The conquest of Germania was not interesting for the Romans. This is explained by one the descriptions of Germania by the chronicler Tacitius: “Germania consists of eerie woodlands, ghastly swamps and rough mountains. The cows are unsightly, their horses are neither remarkable for beauty nor swiftness, nor are they taught the various evolutions practiced with us. Gold and silver cannot be found there either.”  | read more: Our Roman Heritage: The Battle in the Teutoburg Forest
