H-Pietism promotes the academic study of Pietism, broadly defined. We welcome all interested scholars studying Pietism as an early modern religious movement in Europe (particularly Germany) and North America, as well as the many churches and religious communities, worldwide, which are descended from the Pietist and evangelical movements of the eighteenth century.

CALL FOR EDITORS: H-Pietism

H-Pietism is issuing a call for list and review editors. It is seeking interested scholars of Pietism, who are well acquainted with the field of study. Both editorial roles are great opportunities to stay in contact with fellow scholars and be involved with current activities in the field.

Among possible list editor responsibilities are maintaining consistent discussions on scholarly opportunities in the Pietism Studies, cultivating a forum and exchange of information and ideas, and expanding H-Pietism’s activities in directions appropriate to the online forum and field of study.

Important Announcement Concerning the Pietism Studies Group (PSG)

In the official meeting of the Pietism Studies Group (PSG) two winters ago we discussed the current state of the group and our hopes for the future. We acknowledged that the H-Pietism editor had taken on the majority of those tasks previously required of the PSG president, and we agreed that it would be appropriate to consolidate the two positions (PSG president and H-Pietism editor) into one position under the title of H-Pietism editor.
