From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
The German Hansa started as a league of merchants of the numerous trading cities of northern Germany. Under the leadership of Lubeck, and with the co-operation of the four great centres of exchange of London, Bruges, Bergen and Novgorod, it sponsored the greater part of the foreign trade of northern Europe from the twelfth century to the seventeenth century. It brought to the west the furs and wax of Russia, the wheat of Poland, the copper of Hungary and Sweden; to the east it sent Flemish, Dutch and English cloth, the salt and wines of France and Portugal. The League also played a prominent role in cultural affairs, spreading the knowledge of the literature of the west and of Gothic architecture and Renaissance painting throughout Scandinavia and in the countries of Eastern Europe.
