Within city walls

City life in Limburg 1350 - 1795

Living in a city is very different compared to living in a village. With more people together then on the countryside, more rules and regulations are necessary to maintain order and peace. The city council is responsible for jurisdiction and economic regulations. This sometimes clashes with the craft-guilds that want less interference to practise out there professions. Soldiers and clergyman are separate groups with their own rights and obligations. The less fortunate in the city often have no rights at all. All these groups together form urban society. The differences between groups become apparent in their homes and celebrations.
