Nazi Medievalism

January 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Dr. Martin Shichtman’s talk explicitly addresses how the medieval continues to be an influence in the modern world. He will focus on Wewelsburg castle, a seventeenth-century palace remodeled by Heinrich Himmler to be a center for what Himmler envisioned as a new breed of Germanic warrior, with architectural symbolism and decorative imagery drawn from medieval Arthurian literature. Shichtman’s talk will also address the attraction of Wewelsburg (now a museum) and its medievalism for neo-Nazis today.
