Wine Chat: "Strange Cohabitations: Sharing Churches after the Reformation, 1530-2020"

Thursday, January 23 at 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Civic Winery and Wines 50 E. 11th Ave., Eugene OR 97401

David Luebke is a historian of early modern Europe whose work focuses on the religions and political cultures of ordinary people in the German-speaking lands. He is a 2019–20 OHC Faculty Research Fellow.

At one time or another, approximately 1,000 churches in Europe were shared by two or more Christian religions—Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist. About 120 still exist today in France, Germany, and Switzerland; in recent years, a few new ones have been created. The story of how they formed, how they evolved, and how they faded away can tell us a great deal about the shifting meanings that ordinary people ascribed to community, religion, toleration, and intolerance from the sixteenth century to the present.
