Resources for H-Pietism

Mission statement:
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.  We are interested in the cultural as well as the theological and institutional manifestations of Pietism.  This is not a group dedicated to any religious agenda, but rather to promoting scholarly inquiry.
