Get Gutenberg: Der Mann, der die Welt veränderte (German PDF

By Klaus-Rüdiger Mai

Der Erfinder des Buchdrucks gilt als Jahrtausendfigur. Mit seinen bahnbrechenden Neuerungen läutete Johannes Gutenberg das Zeitalter der Moderne ein. Ohne ihn keine Reformation, keine Renaissance, keine Kirchenkritik, keine Bildung im modernen Sinn. Zu Recht vergleicht guy die von ihm eingeleitete mediale Revolution mit der digitalen Zäsur unserer Tage.

Aber der Pionier aus Mainz battle nicht nur ein genialer Erfinder, sondern auch ein geschäftstüchtiger Medienunternehmer, der um die Bedeutung seiner Erfindung wusste und sie gewinnbringend zu vermarkten verstand. Diese Modernität Gutenbergs inmitten der revolutionären Umbruchzeit des 15. Jahrhunderts stellt der erfahrene Biograph Klaus-Rüdiger Mai in den Mittelpunkt seiner Schilderung. Glänzend versteht er es, Gutenberg und seine Zeit lebendig werden zu lassen und die überraschende Aktualität dieser Lebensgeschichte spürbar zu machen.
