The Journal of Early Modern Christianity (JEMC) is published with our partner Refo500 and its academic department RefoRC. It intends to contribute to interdisciplinary, interconfessional, and comparative research on early modern Christianity.
The journal bears out its interdisciplinary character by including a variety of relevant disciplines, such as church history, social history, cultural history, art history, literary history, history of ideas, history of music and archeology. Its interconfessional approach means that it includes contributions covering the major confessions of early modern Christianity, as well as Christian minorities and dissenters that were not recognized by any of these mainstream confessional traditions.
JEMC also incorporates topics concerning the relationship between Christianity and other religions in the early modern period (Judaism, Islam, etc.). The journal’s comparative approach gives expression to a broader intellectual ambition of stimulating research that is not restricted to a local or national scope, but takes advantage of the rich theoretical possibilities of comparing and synthesizing at a European, international, and even global level. In terms of chronology, the Journal primarily covers the period from 1450 to 1640.
Partners of Refo500 and persons affiliated with Refo500 partners receive a discount of 30% on the individual or the institutional subscription rate, when subscribing to the JEMC via the De Gruyter website.
The registration fee for the tenth annual RefoRC Conference in Aarhus in May 2020 includes the subscription for the JEMC of 2020 (two issues).
