Juliane Engelhardt is associate professor in European history 1650-1850 at the University of Copenhagen. She has previously been visiting fellow at universities and research institutions in Göttingen, Cambridge, Berlin and Halle. The subject of her research is a comparative study of early modern ascetic revival movements (Puritans, Methodists, Pietists, Herrnhuts among others) in England and Scotland, Denmark-Norway and the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. In particular she is interested in how these movements promulgated ascetic codes of conduct and influenced the secular culture of the rising middle classes in the 18th and beginning of the 19th century.
