On the Margins: Un-Baptized Africans and Ottomans in Early Modern Germany

November 14, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The presence of immigrants from outside the Judeo-Christian context was a new phenomenon in early modern Germany. Many such newcomers converted to Christianity, opening the door to their integration. Some did not.  In this presentation, professor of history Robert Christman explores the lives of an African and an Ottoman Turk who refused baptism and asks whether they were able to find lives of meaning and connection, despite their “otherness.”
