Argula von Grumbach, née von Stauff, dared to enter public space as a woman. By defending the young Magister Arsacius Seehofer, who was influenced by Lutheran ideas, she challenged not only the scholars of the University of Ingolstadt, but the entire Catholic establishment. The conference volume brings together essays that deal with the first Reformation writer as well as with her family and other female "border crossers". But it also opens numerous windows into an extremely exciting, energetic time, into a world of "flying words", the battle of images, disputations about the right faith, deep religiosity, the overthrow of fixed orders, a time of generational demarcations, when humanistic ideas the universities conquered and opposed the scholastic tradition. The essays by brilliant researchers from different disciplines take the reader into a turbulent period in which people for different reasons made their way to new places, in which plagues and wars threatened the cities and groundbreaking discoveries began to change the world, into a world of demarcations and border crossings at the same time. In Ingolstadt, whose cityscape is characterized by impressive buildings from this turn of the century, many paths cross - important people as well as forward-looking ideas.
