Lutherans and Calvinists in the Age of Confessionalism, Hardback Book

Lutherans and Calvinists in the Age of Confessionalism Hardback

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.
