For he time being, a short introduction to both the name of the page and the person(s) behind shall suffice. “Sitzextase” is a German neologism translating into the ecstasy of sitting. Some years ago we sat around the kitchen table with some drinks (and in one case without) and had a splendid discussion on a topic long since forgotten. Suddenly we felt the urge to label our evening endeavours appropriately. And there we go. “Sitzextase” was a term too good to vanish with the evening and the pertinent illustration for the historian’s work and thus a domain was ever since duely paid for. Recently, the site was converted to a static page with the help jekyll and moved to GitHub pages.
