This chapter examines the history of the University of Helmstedt by looking at Elizabeth Harding's Der Gelehrte im Haus: Ehe, Familie und Haushalt in der Standeskultur der frühneuzeitlichen Universität Helmstedt (2014). Founded in 1576 and closed in 1810, the university's foundation, flourishing, and decline are closely linked to the academic history of the post-Reformation Holy Roman Empire. Harding's work is dedicated to a scrutiny of professorial families and households in Helmstedt as part of the culture of a self-fashioning class in early modern society. Harding formulates the book's thesis at the outset: the so-called private spheres of marriage, family, and household were fundamental for constituting the estate/class of university professors. Her work opens with a detailed introduction that considers some of the basic terms underlying the study—e.g. family, the evolving scholarship on early modern families in Europe, and the category of Standeskultur (class/estate-culture).
