Benjamin Marschke Professor

Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles


My research field is early modern Europe, and my particular niche is seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Germany. My first book was on the Prussian army chaplaincy, and I have published many additional articles on the Prussian state and Halle Pietism (a Christian “awakening” movement). My current research project is centered around the royal court of King Frederick William I of Prussia (1713-1740), though I am also publishing books on the Thirty Years War and on the Holy Roman Empire. I have been granted many research fellowships, and with their support I spend every summer in Germany.
