Manuscript Title2nd Register of Citizens (2. Bürgerbuch)
CaptionParchment · 38 + 3 ff. · 40 x 30 cm · Lucerne · 1479-1572
Manuscript SummaryThis second Register of Citizens contains the list of new citizens for Lucerne from 1479 until 1572. The volume ist valuable as a source regarding immigration to Lucerne, since the individual entries give not only the names of the new citizens, but also their exact origins. At the same time it shows the gradual isolation of the citizenry of Lucerne over the course of the 16th century, as fewer and fewer newcomers were able to enjoy the rights of citizenship. In addition to the original register, which is ordered by first names, the imposing leather-bound volume also contains an index by the municipal archivist Joseph Schneller († 1879).
