This article uses an exceptionally well-documented microcosm of news, 1530s St Gallen, to trace some of the ways in which oral informants and personal networks interacted with, and shaped the reception of, printed news in a small sixteenth-century town. By embedding surviving prints both within St Gallen’s broader marketplace of information and within the specific social contexts within which they were read, summarized, and discussed, the article brings to light a diverse set of characters involved in the non-commercial dissemination of news, points out the social dynamics which drove and structured early modern news-mongering, and highlights the competition and scepticism faced by printed news in the early age of print.

Keywords: News; Print; Orality; Information; Communication.
