English summary: In scientific research radical movements of Pietism are no longer considered to be a minor integral phenomena in church history but a genuine part of the most important reformatory movements in European and North American Protestantism. This volume consists of new research on known and unknown figures of radical Pietism like the couple Petersen, Gottfried Arnold and Gerhard Tersteegen. The authors examine the role of radicalism in Pietism generally - pointing out Francke, Zinzendorf and the Moravian Brethren as well as the representatives of the Lutheran orthodoxy. The authors present therefore an exemplary interim result of research and newly developed perspectives for future studies on this phenomenon. german description: Die radikalen Stromungen des Pietismus werden von der Forschung nicht mehr als Randphanomen einer kirchlich integrierten Bewegung angesehen, sondern als genuiner Bestandteil der bedeutendsten Reformbewegung im europaischen und nordamerikanischen Protestantismus. Der Band enthalt neue Forschungsbeitrage zu bekannten und weniger bekannten Figuren des radikalen Pietismus wie dem Ehepaar Petersen, Gottfried Arnold und Gerhard Tersteegen. Er fragt daruber hinaus nach Radikalitat als einem pragenden Faktor des Pietismus insgesamt - so etwa bei Francke, Zinzendorf und der Herrnhuter Brudergemeine sowie bei Vertretern der lutherischen Orthodoxie. Damit prasentieren die Autoren eine exemplarische Zwischenbilanz der Forschung und entwickeln Perspektiven fur eine kunftige Beschaftigung mit dem Phanomen.

Cosmopolitanism: Uses of the Idea offers an illuminating and dynamic account of an often confusing and widespread concept. Bringing together both historical and contemporary approaches to cosmopolitanism, as well as recognizing its multidimensional nature, Zlatko Skrbis and Ian Woodward manage to show the very essence of cosmopolitanism as a theoretical idea and cultural practice. Through an exploration of various social fields, such as media, identity and ethics, the book analyses the limits and possibilities of the cosmopolitan turn and explores the different contexts cosmopolitanism theory has been, and still is, applied to. Critical, diverse and engaging, the book successfully answers questions such as: How can we understand cosmopolitanism? What is the relationship between cosmopolitanism and ethics? What is the relationship between cosmopolitanism and identity? How do cosmopolitan networks come into being? How do we apply cosmopolitanism theory to contemporary, digital and mediated societies? This comprehensive and authoritative title is a must for anyone interested in cultural consumption, contemporary citizenship and identity construction. It will be especially useful for students and scholars within the fields of social theory, ethics, identity politics, cultural diversity and globalisation.
