Catholicism and Austrian culture
This volume of Austrian Studiesoffers eight essays in cultural history on the intimate connection of Roman Catholic devotion -- and its opposite, anticlericalism -- with Austrian culture from the seventeenth to the twentieth century. In addition to tracing the historical development of Catholicism in Austrian culture, the essays examine controversial individuals including the Counter-Reformation polymath Athanasius Kircher, Cardinal-Archbishop of Vienna Anton Migazzi, and priest Zacharius Werner.
