Against the Modern World: Traditionalism and the Secret Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century

During the mid 1920s, the defensive agency of the Protestant Church—the Apologetic Central—offered “worldview weeks” for the educated laity on topics such as “Between Matter and Spirit” and sought out cooperation with conservative völkisch circles, such as the Fichte Society.
