Domestic, Personal, and Inward: Images and Pietistic Practice around the Reformation
Bild und Frömmigkeitspraxis im Umfeld der Reformation
Edited by:Maria Deiters and Ruth Slenczka
In the world of the Protestant Reformation, laypersons became the bearers of new practices and forms of personal appropriation and internalization of faith. Particularly in Protestantism, images played a central but hitherto neglected role in this process. As they address this theme, the multi-disciplinary authors of this lavishly illustrated compilation repeatedly chart new territory.
