FRAUENLOB

On the 700th Anniversary of the Death of Heinrich von Meißen
Exhibitions

On the occasion of the 700th anniversary of the death of Heinrich von Meißen (*1250/60 in Meißen - 29.11.1318 in Mainz), known as Frauenlob (in praise of women), the Mainzer Dommuseum is paying tribute to the poet with a small exhibition and an extensive programme of events. Lectures, readings and concerts will breathe life into the age and the influence of Frauenlob, who is buried in the cloister of Mainz Cathedral. Themes will include the idealisation of Frauenlob by the so-called Rhine Romanticism of the 19th century and the discussion concerning the authenticity of his works.
