SILESIAN TOWNS IN VEDUTE FROM THE EARLY MODERN ERA
Languages of publication
The greatest portion of the paper introduced the most important extant vedute of Silesian towns from the early modern era; such vedute became common in this region, as well as in other European regions, after the end of the 15th century (Schedel’s Chronicle 1493). But only during the two subsequent centuries their number increased (vedute by Georg Hayer, Braun-Hogenberg’s Atlas, Merian’s Topography etc.) and their number was the highest in the 18th century – a large set of views of Silesian towns by Fridrich Bernard Werner. The conclusion of the work briefly suggests various ways of the use of vedute in histo-rian’s work.
