Susan C. Karant-Nunn: Ritual, Gender, and Emotions

06 September 2022

Essays on the Social and Cultural History of the Reformation. Edited by Matthias Pohlig.

This volume presents important essays by Susan C. Karant-Nunn for the first time in collected form. The essays deal with the social and cultural change triggered by the Reformation and investigate its influence on gender relations, rituals, and emotions. Often in critical dialogue with sociological and anthropological theories, but at the same time very close to the sources, the author analyses how the religious change of the Reformation was implemented in practice, what problems arose in the process, and how the diverse early modern living environments changed as a result of the Reformation.
