Letter from the Editors (September 2016)

Greetings friends,

French Church of Friedrichstadt,Berlin

French Church of Friedrichstadt,Berlin

As fall begins and students return to universities across Europe and North America, we are delighted to bring you a new issue of Contemporary Church History Quarterly. Our September issue is highlighted by reviews of two books: Lauren Faulkner Rossi’s Wehrmacht Priests: Catholicism and the Nazi War of Annihilation and Christoph Picker et al.’s Protestanten ohne Protest: Die evangelische Kirche der Pfalz im Nationalsozialismus.

Along with these reviews, we have prepared a variety of interesting news and notes: a couple of conference reports, some article and book notes, a film announcement, and a call for papers for an upcoming conference on religion and ethno-nationalism. These diverse offerings attest to the ongoing vibrancy of the contemporary history of German and European religious history. We hope you enjoy them and wish you well in this autumn season.

On behalf of the entire editorial team,

Kyle Jantzen, Ambrose University
