The integration of foreigners arriving in early modern Prague society
This study looks at the issue of migration processes in relation to integration in the early modern urban society and its methodological background in terms of socio-historical and cultural-historic research. In regard to options for further development of local historiographic research, the concept of interculturalism is focused on, as a reflection on the space for cultures to encounter each other and mutually define themselves. Using the example of research of immigration into Prague towns during the pre-White Mountain period, opportunities for applying it are outlined and the source base available is characterised. Its effective use should be linked first of all with prosopographic research.
