The existence of the Jagiellonians as an eastern and/or central-eastern dynasty ruling dominions subjected to complicated political processes is a poorly researched theme (cf. Polish researchers: J.S. Keblowski and M. Zlat). Assertions made in this text negate the traditional view of the Jagiellonians as exerting no more than nominal control over Lusatia, and the contacts between the art of their court and that of the towns in the region were very minimal. Lusatia's incorporation into a group of kingdoms stretching far to the East under the rule of the Jagiellonians intensified transfers in cultural values, and in the specific case of the arts this contact accelerated the adaptation to new forms. The architectural works post-dating the Görlitz fire of 1525 (under supervision of town builder Wendel Roskopf) belong to some of the earliest Renaissance works in the Holy Roman Empire. The widely emanating cultural influences flourishing under the Jagiellonians suggest if hardly a complete reversal in the sphere of the arts at least, then at least a certain equilibrium of mutual, as opposed to one-way, exchange during the thousand-year relations between Germany and Poland. Be that as it may, the local nobility's weakness and isolation from major urban centres, ensured the burgher elites of the so-called 'Sechsstädtebund' remained responsible for political rule until the mid-1500s.
