Security was understood in a far broader context in the early modern period than it is today. It was closely linked to social order and stability and played a crucial role in legitimising the heteronormative gender order, which was reinforced by the hierarchy and division of labour in the home.
This fascinating topic is comprehensively explored in the book “Haus – Geschlecht – Sicherheit” by Prof. Dr Sigrid Ruby and Prof. Dr Inken Schmidt-Voges. The book contains 13 contributions from various academic disciplines, including history, art history, literary studies, philosophy and theology. These contributions examine the emergence and shaping of the complex relationships between security and gender order in the early modern period.
