Item description for Mixing Ovaries and Rosaries: Catholic Religion and Reproduction in the Netherlands, 1870-1970 by Marloes Schoonheim...

During the twentieth century in Europe as well as in the United States, Catholics were relatively slow to adopt family planning. How did Catholic reproductive behavior come about? This book aims to disclose the mechanism behind the influence of religion on Catholic fertility behavior in the Netherlands between 1870 and 1970. Schoonheim studies the relationship between faith and fertility at different levels of Dutch society. She explains the way religion, from the late nineteenth century onwards, came to constitute a nationwide social structure. Her research on six Catholic municipalities points out how socio-economic and cultural circumstances stimulated or discouraged the introduction of family planning. On an individual level, letters by Catholic women reveal the different ways believers were confronted with doctrines that affected reproduction. Only in the 1960s did the relationship between Catholic religion and reproduction change dramatically on each of these levels. In less than a decade, fertility rates in Catholic regions tumbled to become the lowest of the Netherlands.

Marloes Schoonheim studied history at Leiden University. In 2003 she won a Frye stipend and a Fulbright scholarship, enabling her to study at the Department of Anthropology of Stanford University in the USA where she contributed to a comparative research on the ethnography of fertility in the Netherlands and Taiwan. She currently works at the Academica Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan.
