AbstractThe economic and cultural life of the capital Berlin is reviewed in this study on the basis of church registers and a number of historical sources. Representatively for the development of Berlin, two Berlin parishes were chosen: Nikolai parish in the city center and the suburban St. Georgen parish. In the middle of the 18th century about 14 percent of the Lutheran population of Berlin lived in both parishes together. The daily living circumstances and the social relations between members of different classes can be shown looking at the collected data. The following topics are covered in specific: politics of the capital by the Hohenzollern, consequences of wars, epidemics and famine and social consequences of the enlightenment.
