Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Terence McIntosh is a specialist of early modern Germany, especially its social, political, religious, and economic history in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. His current book project, “The Pastoral Disciplining of Illicit Sex: Godly Order, Enlightenment, and the Lutheran Clergy in Germany, 1550–1835,” examines how and why the pastorate’s powers to punish illicit sex changed significantly in the early modern period and how these changes shaped the clergy’s professional self-identity. Focusing on Saxony, Württemberg, and Brandenburg-Prussia, the study thus explores fundamental long-term transformations in the relations between church, state, and society.
