Lutherans and Calvinists in the Age of Confessionalism Hardback
by Bodo Nischan
Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series
This volume deals with religion and politics in late and post-Reformation Germany, in particular the relationship between Lutherans and Calvinists. Nischan explores three major topics: first, how Lutherans and Reformed used sermons and ritual to develop a sense of denominational identity; second, how religion and politics interacted in the age of confessionalism; and, finally, how Reformed irenicism sought to overcome existing confessional differences between Lutherans and Calvinists.
The geographical focus of these essays is northern Germany, specifically Brandenburg-Prussia; chronologically they cover the period between the Peace of Augsburg and the middle years of the Thirty Years' War.
