On 19 April 2023 at 6 pm, Dr Frederike Schotters (Tübingen) will speak about »The Trail of Money – A New Perspective on Catholicism and Mission?«. The transnationalisation of Catholicism in the 19th century was largely driven by Catholic laity and a broad fundraising movement. The Œuvre de la Propagation de la Foi collected donations and distributed them to missions worldwide. The lecture takes up the trail of money and discusses to what extent this perspective holds new insights for the history of Catholicism and mission in the »long 19th century«.

The lecture is a cooperation event of the Centre for Religion and Modernity and the Colloquium for Modern and Contemporary History/chair of Prof. Dr. Silke Mende.

The lecture will take place in lecture hall F2 (Fürstenberghaus, Domplatz 20). We cordially invite all interested parties to attend.
