Religious Refugees in Europe, Asia and North America

(6th - 21st century)

Edited by: Susanne Lachenicht

In June 2005, 17 experts on religious migrations, from the US, Britain, Ireland, Germany and France, met in Galway, Ireland, to discuss in an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective - both in time and space - the migration of religious refugees: Irish monks, the Sephardim, Anabaptists, Scottish Presbyterians, Huguenots, Quakers, Herrnhuters, the Acadians, Iranian Shiites, Arab Christians and Iraki Jews. Analysing migration policies, migrants' expectations, networks, integration and assimilation processes, this volume's essays will lead to a revised vision of religious migrations in the medieval, early modern and modern periods and could result in a re-evaluation of contemporary migration and integration policies.
