Tradition! We scarcely know the word anymore.
We are afraid to be either proud of our ancestors or ashamed of them.
We scorn nobility in name and in fact.
We cling to a bourgeois mediocrity which would make it appear we are all Americans, made in the image and likeness of George Washington.
[Dorothy Day, 1897-1980]

A small section of a Wm.Blaeu map from the 16th century showing what central Europe looked like at the time when the first Langmann came to Franconia. It reaches through the 'Hercynian Forest', from Venice in the bottom right corner to the Baltic and Denmark at the top. Nurnberg (in the centre of the map) did not as yet exist as other than as a small hamlet.
