What is special about the Canton of St. Gallen? What are its key characteristics? How does St. Gallen differ from other cantons?
Three research archivists, Martin Jäger, Patric Schnitzer and Regula Zürcher, carried out extensive investigations to answer these questions. Their task was to compile, critically examine, extend and supplement the knowledge. The assignment was not to write an academic analysis in response to the research questions. Instead, it was to draw up a short profile of the canton.
