The re-orientation of German society in the foundation phase of the Federal Republic was shaped by numerous protestant initiatives. The establishment of the German Protestant Church Conference, the idea of a protestant academy, publications such as Christ und Welt and the Sonntagsblatt as well as study facilities and lexicon projects specified the character of Protestantism in the republic's early days. Sabrina Hoppe's analysis of this socially-orientated Protestantism's networks sheds light on its aspirations and self-image, and describes its role in debates about the socio-ethical transformation processes taking place. Starting with Eberhard Muller and Friedrich Karrenberg's positions in these networks, she devotes herself to Protestantism's perception of itself in its dual function as mediation forum and opinion-forming factor.
