Ruth von Bernuth

Conversion as a change of religion and consciousness has been understood in different ways throughout history. The present volume focuses on the close connection between conversion and identity as described in conversion narratives. It discusses how the the constitution of a new identity is reflected in various texts of self-description from the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period.
