On the one hand, Hungary was seen as a key player in the protection of the Christian West against the Ottoman Empire. On the other hand, the region was the stage of a power struggle between local rulers and their King, who was at the same time Holy Roman Emperor. Newspapers, stand-alone pamphlets and extensive historiographical treatises aimed at Western audiences highlighted the rise and fall of opposition leader Ferenc III Nádasdy, the rebellion of Protestant nobleman Thökoly, and the general contribution of Hungarian aristocrats to the stability of Europe. As many of these publications were illustrated, the article will give an overview of the most common genres and iconographical traditions used to visualize the political crises. Apart from references to ancient mythology and contemporary heraldry, Western images of Hungarian conflicts were shaped by religious iconography. Western media did not only act as neutral observers but intended to conceptualize Hungarian conflicts in the broader framework of European politics. The Pope, the Holy Roman Emperor and other Western princes hoped to give the commemoration of Hungarian events their own twist and actively financed written reports as well as sophisticated imagery. While Hungarian noblemen themselves mainly relied on oral communication to justify their actions, the vast production of prints in the Holy Roman Empire helps us understand the international dimensions of seventeenth-century state formation and confessionalisation.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/30"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/30"/> <dc:creator>Barget, Monika</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/32"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Oppositional noblemen in Hungary and the 17th-century Western press</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-08-04T09:41:24Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Barget, Monika</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Etényi, Nóra Gézonné</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-08-04T09:41:24Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/34936"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/32"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
