A Tourists’ Guide to Tolerance in the Rhineland

Bikes on the River

We are also producing a smart phone tourist guide for the Rhineland, introducing the public to the region’s history of religious exile and tolerance in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The scope of this guide will be broader than our research project; it includes sites associated with Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish exiles. It will take the form of a smart phone app that offers suggested routes as well as links to texts, images, and music. The primary aim of this initiative is to make the rich shared cultural legacies of the Rhineland and Netherlands accessible to a general audience, particularly since since so many historical sites in this region were destroyed during the Second World War. Our app will be available in Dutch, German, and English.
