TRANS_HYB project 2020-2022

 Presentation :

 TRANS_HYB has been set up to examine how people transition from one system of beliefs and practices to another and how hybrid practices emerge that derive from the process and facilitate such transitions. From 1500, as confessional diversity emerged in Europe and Christians encountered peoples of many other faiths in the context of colonial expansion, conversion became urgently topical. Although much work has been done on how local adaptations of Christian faiths facilitated mass conversions in missionary settings, examining the process of religious change in Europe between Catholicism and Protestantism as one of “transition” is radically novel in the field of Reformation studies.  Conversely, TRANS_HYB will also examine the evolution of rituals within confessions and explore the changing parameters of intra-confessional practices.

This approach implies a shift of emphasis to the practices of ordinary people and to rituals and material objects used in worship. Hence confessional identities are deessentialized while the lived experience of religious fluidity is underlined.

We will mobilize the tools used in the field of anthropological history in particular to explore the lived experience of religious change and its corporate aspects. We will seek inspiration in methods and heuristic tools forged to analyse how the colonial encounter altered religious dynamics ( acculturaltion, syncretic rituals and practices).  Our approach implies a shift in emphasis from theological beliefs to practices, from clergy and political elites to ordinary people grappling to adapt to mandated change, from individual conversion narratives to community-centered transformations and, finally, from doctrinal concepts to rituals and material objects used in worship and ceremonies. Hence confessional identities are de-essentialized while the lived experience of religious fluidity is underlined.

The team’s expertise is in religious history, urban history and musicology of Early Modern Europe and this initial study will focus on English Dutch, French, German and Spanish speaking,  communities in Europe, in particular in the area on both sides of the Channel.

Members of the TRANS_HYB network (15 november 2020): Pr. Kenneth Fincham (Kent), Dr. Marianne Gillion (KU Leuven), Felipe Goes Silva (Université de Lille), Anne Heminger (University of Tampa, Florida), Suzanna Ivanic (University of Kent), Dr. Yves Junot (UVHC), Dr. Chris Langley (Newman College), Dr. Matthew Laube (Birkbeck College, London), Dr. Antoine Mazurek, Emmanuel Phatthanasinh (Lorraine), Pr. Violet Soen (KU Leuven), Dr. Daniel Trocmé-Latter (Hamerton College, Cambridge), Pr. Anne-Laure Van Bruaene (U. Gent), Heleen Wyffels (KU Leuven).

Three workshops will be run over a two year period to elaborate a research agenda and a design concepts and methods to analyse unexamined sources or revisit underexamined ones.

Our first TRANS_HYB workshop took place on Friday 23 October, 10:45-12:30 (Paris time), held simultaneously at the MESHS building(Lille) and on zoom with twelve members in attendance.

We discussed David Luebke's Hometown Religion: Regimes of Co-Existence in Westphalia.   The second item on the agenda was defining how to move forward with this project. 

Workshop 2: April/May 2021 : anthropological approaches to early modern rituals.

Workshop 3 : Oct/Nov 2022 : religious transitions in colonial contexts (Brazil and Japan).
