Religious knowledge, according to the basic assumption of the German Research Foundation's Research Training Group 'Religious Knowledge in Pre-Modern Europe (800-1800)', is generated when dealing with the knowledge revealed in the Bible. In day-to-day interactions between religious experts and laypeople however, this knowledge - conceived as intangible - is continuously transformed and adapted to the respective historical circumstances. The discursive competition that arises between religious knowledge and other fields of knowledge, such as natural history, art and literature, are the focus of this interdisciplinary volume's articles. They hone in on the practices employed to adapt and shape religious knowledge in these adjacent fields, as well as the tensions, rivalries and synergies that emerge in the process.
