Review of Dr Samuel Koehne’s Article “Religion in the Early Nazi Milieu: Towards a Greater Understanding of ‘Racist Culture'”

Dr Samuel Koehne’s article, “Religion in the Early Nazi Milieu: Towards a Greater Understanding of ‘Racist Culture'”, was recently reviewed and recommended by Heath Spencer in the Contemporary Church History Quarterly.

Samuel works in the field of Modern European History, focusing particularly on the interrelations between religion, politics and nationalism. He is an expert on Nazism and religion, and has a developed international profile owing to a series of publications in world-class journals (including Central European History, the Journal of Contemporary History & German Studies Review). Samuel’s research on the ‘official’ Nazi views on religion has forged new ground, including a new conceptual approach that reframes the terms of debate: ‘ethnotheism,’ or religion defined by race and the perceived spiritual and moral characteristics that the Nazis believed were inherent in race.
