Abstract

Im Sommer 1663 erreichte eine kleine Reisegesellschaft um den Botaniker John Ray Heidelberg. Die Engländer hielten sich nur wenige Tage in der Stadt auf. Durch Empfehlungsbriefe an Professoren der Universität und an den Kurfürsten hatten sie einen privilegierten Zugang zu vielen Informationen. Kurfürst Karl Ludwig, ein Sohn der Elisabeth Stuart, und somit Neffe des englischen Königs Karl I., hatte sich in den Jahren des Exils lange in England aufgehalten. Er sprach Englisch und empfing die Besucher auf die Schloss, wo er ihnen auch seine Sammlungen zeigte. Philip Skippon nutzte als aufmerksamer Beobachter die kurze Zeit und hinterließ eine lebendige Schilderung der Stadt, des kurfürstlichen Schlosses und der Universität.

Translation of abstract (English)

In the Summer of 1663 a small group of travellers led by the botanist John Ray reached Heidelberg. These Englishmen stayed only a few days in the city. But through their letters of introduction to the professors of the local university and to the Elector Palatine they gained a special access to much information. The Prince Karl Ludwig, a son of Elisabeth Stuart, and thereby the nephew of the English king, Charles I, had spent much time in England during the period of his exile. He spoke English and received the English visitors in his castle, where he showed them his collections. As an attentive observer, Philip Skippon used his brief time in Heidelberg well, and he left us a vivid description of the city of Heidelberg, and of its princely castle and university.
