This volume is a collection of articles from theology, German studies and media studies. The authors provide a panorama of various media – sermons, letters, prints, inscriptions, illustrations and monuments – from the Middle Ages up to the early modern era and study their influence on the intended content.
Christian proclamation needs media through which it can reach people; these media help to influence what can be communicated and are themselves subject to historical change. However, in the course of history it was not only texts which turned into the bearers of the Christian message. This volume is a collection of articles from theology, German studies and media studies. The authors provide a panorama of various media – sermons, letters, prints, inscriptions, illustrations and monuments – from the Middle Ages up to the early modern era and study their influence on the intended content. Thus the book is a building block of the history of Christian media and at the same time a theoretical reflection about it.
