The landscape - The people

Rheinhessen 1816 - 2016

Founded at the Congress of Vienna and handed over in 1816 as a new Hessian province to the Grand Duke of Hesse-Darmstadt, the area between Mainz, Bingen, Bad-Kreuznach, Alzey and Worms was given its official name only in 1817: Rheinhessen.

History of Rheinhessen

This volume narrates scientifically the history of the region and its inhabitants from the Thirty Years' War to the present day.

The coexistence of territories, the destruction of numerous wars, population growth, the French Revolution, and belonging to Napoleon's empire have shaped the landscape and its people.

How then, since 1816, the personal, political, social, economic and cultural relations and experiences in this area condense, so that the inhabitants of the province understand themselves as "Rheinhessen", this is the book; but also how this regional identity evolves in times of globalization.
