When visiting the Francke Foundations today, one immerses oneself in a historical ensemble with a social and educational architecture comprising early modern origins which is unique in the world. In preparation or supplementation of such a visit, this third edition of a catalogue presents the Francke Foundations’ attractions – the Historic Orphanage, the Francke House and the library with its renowned scenery depot – as well as August Hermann Francke’s work. Separate chapters deal with the construction history and architecture of this unique ensemble.
More minor source material is published and commented on in the series “Kleine Quellentexte” and “Kleine Schriftenreihe.” A further focus is the richly illustrated catalogues on the Francke Foundations’ alternating exhibitions, a key part of their cultural programme. These catalogues always provide additional in-depth insights into the exhibition themes and therefore continue to be relevant long after the exhibition is over.
