The Benedictine Abbey of St Peter, a major centre of literary culture in late-medieval Salzburg – along with archiepiscopal court of Pilgrim von Puchheim (1365-96), known not least as the patron of the so-called ‘Monk of Salzburg’. The achievement and influence of this still unidentified poet, often popularly described as Salzburg’s most important creative artist before Mozart, will be discussed at length in the proposed chapter, which will also take account of Latin-language texts written in around Salzburg.
