The German Reformation did not just remould ritual life and transform theology; it instigated an explosion of a variety of forms of cultural expression, from images, plays and music, moralising books, histories, and chronicles, through to material objects such as altar pieces, oven tiles, and clothes. In this way it created new modes of thinking about the world, and encouraged men and women to experience emotions, sexuality, time, and material culture in different ways. The aim of this network is to unite scholars working on diverse aspects of the Germany in the early modern period to understand these cultural experiences. Whilst existing scholarship has examined elements of this culture in isolation, as yet no major forum exists in which scholars across Europe and beyond can understand the implications of one another’s work. This network will enable the co-operation of history, music, art history, theology, and German language departments within Oxford and beyond.
