Entangled Religions is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed academic journal that deals with encounters between different religious traditions and concomitant processes of transfer in past and present times. Contributions to Entangled Religions discuss occasions, themes, modes, conditions, and consequences of contacts between religious groups and the way religious thought and practice developed in and through such contact phenomena. Entangled Religions is published by the Käte Hamburger Kolleg Dynamics in the History of Religions between Asia and Europe.
The special issue is based on papers presented at the international conference “Zwischen Kanzel und Altar. Die (neue) Materialität des Spirituellen” held at the Johannes a Lasco Bibliothek, Emden in April 2016. Continuity and change in church interiors were key concepts addressed at the conference. The studies presented here analyse the impact of confessional change on church interiors and intentionally move away from the cathedrals and parish churches in the political and religious centres of early modern Europe.
