"Where Moth and Rust Destroy: Archives and the Contest over Anabaptist Information"

David Neufeld stands in the grebel atriumArchives set the parameters of what we can know about early Anabaptists. Examination of archives’ own histories shows that, far from neutral repositories of historical evidence, these collections intensified conflict between early Anabaptists and their opponents. The management of information about nonconformists contributed to their repression, while Anabaptists’ documentary response supported their efforts to survive. 

This year's J. Winfield Fretz Visiting Scholar Lecture will be presented by David Y. Neufeld on Thursday, March 12, 2020.

Dr. David Y. Neufeld is Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Conrad Grebel University College. He also holds the J. Winfield Fretz Fellowship in Mennonite Studies for 2019-2020.  Neufeld is a historian of religion, culture, and social life in the early modern world.
