"German Catholics and German Catholicism in the Land of Luther"

Marc R. Forster, the Henry B. Plant Professor of History at Connecticut College, will speak about the nature of Catholicism in Germany in the two centuries after Martin Luther's Reformation. Focusing on the rural nature of Catholicism, the elaboration of a Baroque sacral landscape, and the development of a deep piety oriented around the practice of local and regional pilgrimage, Forster will illuminate the persistent strength of popular Catholicism in the land of Luther.
