A World in Flux

Augustalis of Emperor Frederick II

In the Hohenstaufen century between 1138 and 1268, all of Europe underwent far reaching processes of change and restructuring, which transformed the world view: New artistic activities and forms of expression evolved, a flourishing culture of knowledge arose, courtly life developed undreamed of pomp and grandeur and ecclesiastical structures were reformed. Economic conditions changed radically too. The nine Hohenstaufen monarchs Conrad III, Frederick I Barbarossa, Philipp of Swabia, Frederick II, Henry VI, Henry (VII), Conrad IV, Conradin and Manfred played an important part in this.
