Scholarship on religious belief and identity represents some of the most innovative and provocative work on modern Germany. This workshop takes stock of this research and seeks to move beyond the state of current scholarship: What have been the roles of forms of coercion and exclusion in beliefs? How do we account for religious resurgence and waning in the modern period? How have different religious populations influenced the belief of other religious populations? In what ways have religious beliefs been embedded in social, cultural and gender mores and relationships? Leading scholars from different disciplines including literature, history, and religious studies will address these and other issues.
