Exhibition: In search of Sophia

mnb

Less studied are the poems composed for the somptuous marriage ceremony of Samuel von Brukenthal and Sophia von Klocknern. Their authors - Carolus Binder von Sachsenfels and Cornelius Paulus Hufzarius - wrote them in Latin and German and praised the grooms, their families and, in a precious writting style, referred to mythology, literature and historical events.
