Silesia, Early Modern Age, Calvinism, Friedrich I of Wittelsbach (Frederick I, Elector Palatine)
In connection with the joining of Protestant Silesian princes and Estates in the Bohemian Estates uprising in the year 1619, historians have long dealt with the journey of King Frederick I of Wittelsbach to Silesia, whose aim was to accept a tribute from the Princes of Silesia and the Estates in February and March of 1620. Until now, historiography has largely focused on the course of this journey and the ceremony associated with the king’s reception, while this paper draws attention to the politico-legal context of the visit, and to the political intentions of the privilege to religious freedom that Frederick I issued to the Silesian Calvinists living in the city of Wroclaw, in an Imperial Charter for the Calvinists dated 5 March 1620.
