Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the beginning of the modern age the Portuguese Discoveries influenced decisively, as no other event of this period, the political, economic and cultural relations between Portugal and Germany. Particularly the commercial links reached a very intense phase in the first two decades of the sixteenth century. In 1505 several trade houses of Augsburg and Nurnberg participated in consortia in the arming of the Portuguese fleet to India commanded by Francisco de Almeida. The Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I supported this project and followed through the humanist Conrad Peutinger, his counselor, closely and with much curiosity the Portuguese overseas enterprises, mainly for political and dynastic reasons, given its proximity with the House of Avis
