Example text

Most of the possessions of the Austrian Habsburgs were relatively contiguous, and the Danube and its tributaries connected a number of regions, even though the river’s geographic pull was not unqualified, especially when it came to integrating Bohemia, and mountains hindered communications within and between various territories. Clearly, contiguity was necessary, but not sufficient in itself to further integration. Considering that the 6–7 million inhabitants living in the Habsburg 28 Co-ordinating State, Reformation and Elites lands spoke about a dozen distinct languages, linguistic differences did little to enhance communication and infrastructural reach.

The main activity of the state remained military and, while expanding, its public functions continued to be relatively small. Rulers’ organizational autonomy remained restricted, 24 Co-ordinating State, Reformation and Elites partly because they lacked good and rapid communication networks and extensive resources. Not surprisingly, the state continued to govern largely through bargaining and compromise with local elites, who still had extensive jurisdiction over their subjects. In fact, the interdependence between ruler and the various Estates or parliaments grew, rather than declined.

The same, of course, could be said about historians. Nevertheless, together, etic and emic points of view do provide for a fuller explanation of past action and motives. Although the second part of this book focuses more than the first on the hereditary lands, and especially on Lower Austria, it extends its scope repeatedly to the nobilities of the other Habsburg territories at the Imperial Court. Chapter 4 analyzes the social evolution of an entire provincial nobility during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, establishing its size, internal divisions, and methods of recruitment.
