This chapter delves into a chronicle produced in the frontier zone between the Low Countries and Germany, written by Sweder Schele. Engaging in the modern field of transregional history and the long-standing tradition of German studies on autobiographical texts of the Revolt, the different layers within Sweder Schele’s chronicle are deconstructed, utilizing the concept of ‘episodic memory’ as defined by Geoffrey Cubitt. As the two parts of the chronicle of Schele have been preserved separately in archives in both Germany and the Netherlands, the subject of this contribution already demonstrates the importance of historical research across borders. Schele wrote the first part of his chronicle while living in the Low Countries and the second part during his time in Germany, which makes him a personal witness and participant of both the Revolt in the Low Countries and the Thirty Years’ War in the Holy Roman Empire.
