The enigmas of German cultural history have fascinated and perplexed scholars for generations. Coming to the forefront in movements as disparate as the Reformation and the Third Reich, the religious element of German culture has provided a crucial foundation in the development of the German nation and German national identity. This study engages the complexity of German religious history by explaining the ebb and flow of spiritual consciousness in terms of a continuum based upon elementary principles of contrasts and cohesion. An overview of 7,000 years of German religious development, this study includes a framework and model for the re-evangelization of post-Christian Germany.
