 abstract = {The development of the north-eastern French region of Lorraine is not only determined by its peripheral position, but also particularly by the border location and, associated therewith, by the immediate neighbourhood of Germany. Historical structures from the Celtic, Roman and German periods as well as the German-French conflicts that started in the 19th century were the reasons that Lorraine could not unite till now, but in the final analysis is a divided region. Witness thereof give, among others, the Romanesque-Germanic language divide and the still ever present rivalry between Nancy, the capital of the former Duchy of Lorraine, and Metz, the former Celtic Mediomatrics' seat and a presently still important diocese. The development of the Romanesque-Germanic language divide and the great number of historic monuments show that Lorraine was exposed to the changing influences of the Romanesque and Germanic cultures. For the idea and/or the political vision of a "Lotharingia" which presently makes its appearance in the Saar-Lor-Lux region concept to succeed, it is of great importance that the mental barriers between the Romanesque and Germanic culture must be overcome. Lorraine's socio-historical heritage does not only make an important contribution to the identity evolution of the Lorraine people, but also accounts for the region's attractiveness. As a European cultural region, the border location obtains a boosting revaluation since the linking rather than the seperating character of Lorraine is now highlighted.},
