Title: Thomas A. and Katherine (Gingrich) Brady collection

Dates of creation: Microfilmed [19--]  (originally created 1332-1800, predominant 1500-1600)

Physical description: 114 microfilm reels, 29 cm of textual records

Biographical sketch: Thomas Brady, the Sather Professor Emeritus of History at UC Berkeley and his wife Katherine, an expert paleographer, spent decades studying the history of the Reformation(s) in Strasbourg and Reformation-era politics more broadly. During that time, they gathered a wealth of early modern primary sources on microfilm. Among Professor Brady’s best-known books are Ruling Class, Regime, and Reformation at Strasbourg, 1520-1555 (Leiden: Brill, 1978), Protestant Politics: Jacob Sturm (1489-1553) and the German Reformation (Atlantic Highlands, N.J., 1995), and German Histories in the Age of Reformations, 1400-1650 (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2009).

Custodial history: Donated to the Archives by Thomas A. Brady Jr. and Katherine Brady in 2017. Received from Christina Moss and Greta Kroeker in 2017.

Scope and content: The collection consists predominantly of microfim rolls created from various archives in Europe and the United States at the request of Thomas Brady over the course of his career. The largest part of the collection comes from archives in Strasbourg. Accompanying materials include photocopied manuscripts, photocopied published sources, and personal research notes.

The majority of the microfilms contain copies of documents housed in the Archives de la ville et de l’Eurométropole de Strasbourg (the Strasbourg municipal archives, which also house the Archives de St. Thomas, dedicated to Strasbourg church history), the Archives départementales du Bas-Rhin (the regional archives for the Lower Rhine), and the Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire de Strasbourg (the Strasbourg university library, which houses a substantial collection of premodern manuscripts and rare books). Other microfilms include copies of documents from a number of other libraries and archives, including the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris, the Weimar Staatsarchiv, the Danish Royal Library, the Newberry Library, and the Harvard University Library. The contents of these documents include multiple late medieval and early modern chronicles of Strasbourg history, large amounts of sixteenth-century correspondence from Strasbourg’s Reformation-era political and religious leaders (including the entire Thesaurus Baumianus, a collection of nineteenth-century copies of the Strasbourg reformers’ correspondence), sixteenth-century notes from Strasbourg Senate meetings (particularly focused on the years of the Schmalkaldic War), and many other treasures.

The city of Strasbourg is of particular interest to scholars of early Anabaptist history, both for the number and diversity of Anabaptists it attracted and the relatively mild punishments Anabaptists and other religious dissenters faced there. While some scholars have attributed Strasbourg’s relative tolerance for dissent to the irenicism of its reformers—and Martin Bucer, Wolfgang Capito, and Mathis Zell were certainly less quick to burn bridges than many of their contemporaries—Brady has argued convincingly that the primary impetus for toleration came from Strasbourg’s magistrates, who sought peace and order more than they sought conformity. While few of the documents in the collection deal directly with Anabaptists, these primary sources shed light on the inner workings of Strasbourg politics and the history of the city leading up to and during the Reformation era, all of which helps to illuminate the context in which so many sixteenth-century Anabaptists managed to survive and even thrive to some extent.

Notes: Some films not on reels.
Three boxes of historical maps of Elsass-Lothringen were not kept.
