Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the most significant and sustained confessional conflicts between the evangelical church of St. Ulrich, more commonly called the &t;Predigthaus&t; (preaching hall) in the sources, and its Benedictine neighbor in the Abbey and Basilica of SS. Ulrich and Afra, especially in the late-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It describes how space became a reservoir of memory and simultaneously a site of forgetting. The chapter examines confessional conflict in Augsburg through two intersecting forms of loss-the relinquishing of Catholic space in the civic landscape and the distortions of confessional memory as both religious communities attempted to forge their own distinct identities. It provides a general sketch of the architectural history of the location in question. Christoph Schwarz's historical criticism subtly challenged Benedictine claims about the long and continuous existence of the monastery and the Catholic Church in the region.

Keywords: Augsburg; Basilica of SS. Ulrich and Afra; Benedictine basilica; Catholic basilica; St. Ulrich Predigthaus
