Franz Xaver von Schönwerth (1801-1886) was a German civil servant who collected the folk beliefs of his native Upper Palatinate region in Bavaria, Germany. This project is an original English translation of Schönwerth's primary work, Customs and Legends of the Upper Palatinate (1857-1859), preceded by a summary of the author's life, the reception of his work, and its relevance in the modern day.
