Font used in Emmanuel Kant's essay Answering the Question: What is Enlightenment?

Jekwan's picture

Hi!

I'm writing a small essay about the age of enlightenment and would like to know which fonts that are used on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KantWasIstAufkl%C3%A4rung.png

Note that "sapere aude!" (ninth line) is written in a different font than the rest.

Help is much appreciated!

Best regards,
Johan

close to Wittenberger

Thanks. Wittenberger is pretty close... What about "sapere aude"?

That’s Latin (so is naturaliter majorennes), hence it is in an Antiqua, i.e. Roman. Hard to tell which, from this image.

on a side note, this course has some good information on the enlightenment, if you're still writing the essay. https://www.coursera.org/course/modernpostmodern

Looking again at the blackletter, I think it is a different Fraktur than Wittenberger (based on the "s")
