Exile and Patronage is an innovative new study which explores the migration of refugees from National Socialism from the perspective of patronage. The thirteen essays are divided into three parts: art and music, the churches and political refugees. Individual case studies look at the relationships which came to life around George Bell, Bishop of Chichester, the Berger family, Michael Croft, Heinz Kappes, Gerhard Leibholz, Robert Bruce Lockhart, Rowmund Pisudski, Jack Pritchard, Hans Ansgar Reinhold and Luigi Sturzo. The book also examines the iconography of patronage and studies particular works which received support in exile such as Wagner's Bühnenweihfestspiel. ueberdenautorKatarzyna Stoklosa is Assistant Professor in the Institute of Border Region Studies at the University of Southern Denmark.
