Nazi Civil Religion During the Third Reich: The Link Between Secular Religiosity and Violence in Hitler’s Germany

Presented by: Michael Booker, PhD, Aims Community College
In-person and livestreamed. Check website for link

This presentation will examine the idea that nationalist-inspired civil religious causes, like the cult of Nazism in Hitler’s Germany, ultimately inspire people to engage in acts of violence against a defined “enemy other” that the dominant cult of personality deems a threat to the security and future prosperity of the nation. Civil Religion is one of the primary motivators of violence in societies wedded to nationalism.
