About this product
- DescriptionThis study examines the life and world of Conrad Broske (1660-1713), Court Preacher in Offenbach/Mayn. His claim to fame lies in a ten year period between 1694 and 1704 in which this Marburg-trained pastor became a prolific author, polemicist and promoter of chiliastic writings, thanks to a meeting with Thomas Beverley in 1693 and the baptism of a Muslim convert in 1694. Broske lived a complex existence between Sardis and Philadelphia, as a Reformed court preacher and Philadelphian chiliast. His two-sided experience was actually the rm among the Pietists, including so-called radicals. Life between paradigms was the German way of being radical in early modern times due to a lack of religious toleration compared to England and the Netherlands. Broske's story belongs to the rise of Early Evangelicalism that W.R. Ward has recently discussed.
- Author BiographyDouglas H. Shantz, Ph.D. (1987) in History, University of Waterloo, is Professor of Christian Thought at the University of Calgary, Canada. His recent articles discuss Pietist historical writing, autobiography, conversion and migration.
