The Holy Roman Empire forms the background upon which to consider the relationship between Empire and Europe, the importance of authority and religion, as well as everyday life in the Middle Ages. For example, armour and swords are used to explain the role of knights not only as warriors, but also as representatives of the nobility. In addition, objects as varied as official town charters, executioner’s swords, various instruments used for trading and/ or leisure, and the spectacular 16th Century Augsburg Calendar paintings help schoolchildren explore and discuss politics, religion, and everyday life in the Middle Ages.
