Rhetorics of Religion in Germany, 1900-1950
This interdisciplinary conference examines the role played by religious discourse in German culture in the early twentieth century. This period saw the emergence of a body of religious thought—and reflection on the role of religion in culture—that rivals that of any other period in the Judaeo-Christian tradition. Scholars in such diverse fields as intellectual and cultural history, German studies, history of philosophy, and religious studies have in recent years made remarkable advances in our understanding of specific topics and thinkers within this enormously important field, but there have been few attempts to bring together scholars not just across disciplines, but across religions and denominations in order to discuss larger, synthetic issues.
