Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies explores ‘a model of toleration’
Rounding out September’s event schedule at the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies is a lecture by Jeff Bach, Young Center director, who explores how Anabaptists in the Netherlands moved from feared religious sect to respectable citizens to advocates for tolerance for Anabaptists in other parts of Europe. His lecture, “Anabaptism and the Netherlands: A Model of Toleration,” takes place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, in Bucher Meetinghouse.
An internationally recognized scholarly research institute, the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies at Elizabethtown College conducts and promotes research about Anabaptism and Pietism and interprets the life, faith and culture of Anabaptists and Pietists through public lectures, exhibits and conferences.
