500 Jahre Reformation
Rückblicke und Ausblicke aus interdisziplinärer Perspektive
[Five Hundred Years of Reformation: Looking Back and Looking Ahead]
Ed. by Opitz, Peter
Aims and Scope
Luther’s theses on the power of indulgences (1517) became the impetus for a vast movement. Essentially inspired by Christian religious concerns, the Reformation helped shape and transform the entire political and sociocultural landscape of large portions of the “Western” world, in both the short and long term. The multidisciplinary essays in this volume consider this history from the perspective of the Reformation city of Zurich.
