The Baltic region has always been situated on the crossroads of the three main branches of Christianity: Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Protestantism. As such, it has provided ample material for studying religious contact. This special issue brings together four contributions analysing such cases in this region during the early modern period. It shows the value of the Baltic region as a multi-ethnic melting pot of different Christian denominations, held together primarily by the change-resistant land-owning class of Baltic Germans.
Entangled Religions is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed platinum open access journal that deals with inter- and intra-religious contact and transfer in past and present times. It is published by the Center for Religious Studies at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.
