Religion, Modernity, and Cultural Heritage:
The Legacy and Sustainability of Moravian Christiansfeld

An interdisciplinary research network dedicated to Christiansfeld.

Christiansfeld represents a unique opportunity to study the continuous and complex entanglement of religion and modern Nordic society as it is being formed, including urban design, industrialization, musical and literary expressions, heritagization, everyday life, and forms of social and individual subjectivity.

The network investigates new perspectives on religion and cultural heritage on the basis of empirical material from UNESCO World Heritage site Christiansfeld. It brings together researchers from different fields and institutions in order to stimulate and coordinate interdisciplinary, international research, and to facilitate further funding applications, in order to enable new and deeper investigations of the unexplored material.
