Abstract

The Catholic Association for Spiritual Renewal () was founded in 1946 to halt the ‘degeneration’ of the ethical and religious consciousness of the German people, especially German Catholics, caused by Nazism and World War II.1 In the first years after the war, dozens of intellectuals and managers of Catholic organizations travelled throughout Germany to renew religious and cultural life through personal meetings, conferences, lectures and courses. During the 1950s, attention shifted to the education of Dutch Catholics, mostly managers of Catholic organizations, with a view to their international contacts. This manifested itself in the name change to Catholic Association for International Relations ( (KAGIB)). After 1965, KAGIB’s activities declined rapidly; affiliation with the National Center of Catholic Action ( (LCKA)) was a failure, as this center was liquidated in 1965. The KAGIB had to curtail its activities and was finally liquidated in 1977.
