God's Spies: The Stasi's cold war espionage campaign inside the church

God's Spies: The Stasi's cold war espionage campaign inside the church
When the Berlin Wall came down, the files of the East German secret police, the much-dreaded Stasi, were opened and read. And among the shocking stories revealed was that of the Stasi's infiltration of the Church. 'This is a work of more than just historical interest. Elizabeth Braw's shrewd and scathing analysis of the characters involved and the issues they are dealing with leads us to draw many lessons for the modern world.' James Arbuthnot: The Rt Hon Lord of Edrom.

Almost 10% of the Lutheran Church's workforce were, it appears, busy involved in spying on each other, and on the Church's congregations. The Lutheran Church was the only semi-free space in East Germany, where those who rebelled against the regime could find a way of living at least a little out of the government's iron grip. Even the organisations that smuggled Bibles were infiltrated. By recruiting members of the Church, from clergymen to seminary students, the Stasi hoped to learn more about members of the public and their plans. However, it was from within this same Church that protests in 1989 rose up, leading to the felling of the Berlin Wall and an end to a dark chapter of German and European history. This gripping account contains accounts of betrayal, career advancement and the ultimate failure of the Stasi.
