(p.165) Conclusion
Bishop von Galen

Beth A. Griech-Polelle

Yale University Press

The chapter concludes with a discussion on the continuing search for a clear definition of resistance and the best way to interpret the actions of von Galen. It addresses historians' work on these topics and takes a look at Michael Geyer's essay on resistance. The chapter also looks at the idea that von Galen practiced selective opposition, emphasizes the relevance of studying the misconceptions about von Galen with regards to his 1941 sermons, and reveals the neglect of the historians in analyzing the link between von Galen's portrayal of the Jewish religion and his ideas of Bolshevism.

Keywords:   resistance, Michael Geyer, selective opposition, 1941 sermons, Jewish religion, Bolshevism, misconceptions
