Lukas Mayerhofer Helene Zand
Scientific edition of hitherto unpublished diaries, sketchbooks and notebooks from Hermann Bahr (1863-1934) during the years 1885-1908 (5 Vols. plus one commentary volume). Hermann Bahr counts as one of the essential mediators of modernity in Vienna around 1900. Knowledge of the diaries allows inferences to the complex correlations of overall European and regional cultural developments. Analysis of ethnic-cultural plurality in Central Europe and the mediation of corresponding traditions in the education system of the Habsburg monarchy.

April 15th 1995 The following short summary of Austrian history of the 20th century intends only to give an overview of the subject. The intention is by no means to provide a complete and comprehensive description. For all further information the reader is referred to the list of literature given below. Email: In the following the history will be partitioned into several parts. The end of each of these parts being an event that gave a new direction to the development of the country. The author is well aware of that one may argue about the relevance of events in history since they are only a manifestation of previous developments that show up in a single moment. However, for a historical review they may serve as milestones that provide a formal help for the reader. Although it's difficult to talk about contemporary history and especially about the last years excluding personal preferences and emotions (sine ira et studio), I will cover in short also the developments of recent years until today. The periods described are as follows.

People Budget History Activities Report ... Research Gallery From the "learned society" to a scientific organisation supporting modern research institutions
In 1713, G. W. von Leibniz suggested to establish an Academy of Sciences in Vienna, taking as examples the Royal Society in England and the Académie des Sciences in France. Under Maria Theresia several further attempts were made to establish an Academy (inter alia by J. C. Gottsched in 1750), but it was not until twelve scholars filed a petition in 1837 that the long negotiations were initiated which finally led to the foundation of the "Kaiserliche Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien" by Imperial Patent on May 14, 1847. In 1857, the Academy, which as the "learned society" represented a stronghold of scientific freedom, was granted the use of the old University in the centre of Vienna , built between 1753 and 1755 by the French architect Jean Nicolas Jadot, as its permanent headquarters.
Initial Achievements in the Humanities and Natural Sciences

AUSTRIAN HISTORY Celts - Foundation of Austria - Habsburg Dynasty Peasent´s War - Maria Theresa - Joseph II - Congress of Vienna - Revolutions of 1848 World War I - Treaty of Saint-Germain - "Red" Vienna - Dollfuss - March 1938 - After World War II - Austria is located at the crossroads of Europe; Vienna is at the gate of the Danubian plain, and the Brenner Pass in W Austria links Germany and Italy. From earliest times Austrian territory has been a thoroughfare, a battleground, and a border area. It was occupied by Celts and Suebi when the Romans conquered (15 B.C. A.D. 10) and divided it among the provinces of Rhaetia, Noricum, and Upper Pannonia. After the 5th cent. A.D. , Huns, Ostrogoths, Lombards, and Bavarians overran and devastated the provinces. By c.600, Slavs from the east had occupied all of modern Styria, Lower Austria, and Carinthia. In 788, Charlemagne conquered the area and set up the first Austrian (i.e., Eastern) March in the present Upper and Lower Austria, to halt the inroads of the Avars. After Charlemagne's death (814) the march soon fell to the Moravians and later to the Magyars, from whom it was taken (955) by Emperor Otto I. Otto reconstituted the march and attached it to Bavaria, but, in 976, Otto II bestowed it as a separate fief on Leopold of Babenberg, founder of the first Austrian dynasty. Emperor Frederick I raised (1156) Austria to a duchy, and, in 1192, Styria also passed under Babenberg rule.

The Habsburg Dynasty - History
In its early years, the land that became Austria was invaded by a succession of tribes and armies using the Danube Valley as a conduit - the Celts, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths, Huns, Avars, Slavs. Therefore the Babenberger Dynasty was sent to established a territory in the Danube Valley known as the Ostarrichi in 803, to prevent these invasions; and the area became Christianised and predominantly Germanic. The Babenbergers, who moved their residence to Vienna, controlled Austria for nearly 300 years until Duke Friedrich died childless in 1246 leaving his lands once again open to warring tribes. By 1278 the Habsburgs had gained control and this mighty dynasty managed to rule Austria right up until WW I. Although the Habsburgs were not averse to using a bit of muscle, they preferred less barbaric ways of extending their territory and so Austria gradually expanded thanks to judicious real estate purchases and many politically-motivated marriages.
New territories were acquired, which resulted in the Habsburgs, now also the Holy Roman Emperors, ruling much of central Europe including Hungary and Bohemia and Croatia, parts of Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, as well as the Netherlands and Spain and its vast overseas possessions. (The Empire was divided into a Spanish and Austrian half in 1556.) The Gothic style was popular between the 14th and 16th centuries, as evidenced by the number of imposing buildings with flying buttresses, pointed arches, ribbed ceiling vaults and pigeon toes. St Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna is considered to be Austria's Gothic masterpiece. The next major stylistic influence was Baroque. Learning from the Italian model, Fischer von Erlach developed a national style called Austrian Baroque, typified in the National Library and the Church of St Charles in Vienna. Empress Maria Theresa had a fling with Rococo.
