Three panels depict the impact of the Reformation, starting with transformations between the Reformation and cultural contexts, followed by the global spread of protestant beliefs in new cultural contexts, and the cultural fields of the present reception of the Reformation. The indirect impact of the Reformation in the arts and media, in politics and law, in forms of knowledge and of life, and last but not least in religion itself deserve special attention.

Each morning, two keynote lectures will be presented followed by discussions. The sections in the afternoon examine questions about the cultural and religious history of Christianity since the 16th century. The results will be published in Leucorea-Studies.

The Call for papers is closed.
