Overview

KADOC Artes 10Based on the cultural insight that "historism"—understood as the projection of the past into the present by artistic means, or the "invention of tradition"—always occurs in close connection with the emergence of nation-states, this volume describes for the first time the cultural and denominational character and development of the Maas-Rhine region during the period between the French Revolution and World War I. Seventeen contributors shed light on the cultural identity of this Catholic-dominated core region of Europe.
