This chapter presents an essay concerning the relation between Enlightenment culture and the evolving state in the territory of the Habsburg Monarchy. It highlights the cultural influence of the French and of the Prussian-Protestant model and analyses the relation of patriotism with transnational and trans-regional currents. This essay explores the social foundations of the changing cultural structures and the extent to which the state took over from the court the responsibility as purveyor and fashioner of culture.

Keywords:   Enlightenment culture, Habsburg Monarchy, transnational currents, French culture, patriotism
