Hegemonic Confessions at the Baltic Periphery—Religious Contact in the Early Modern Baltic Region
Keywords:Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Baltic, Orthodox Church, Catholicism, Protestantism
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.
