God, Heidelberg en Oranje, 450 jaar Heidelbergse Catechismus
Dit boek neemt u mee naar de fascinerende wereld van de zestiende eeuw. Midden in een tijd van vernieuwing en verandering op religieus, cultureel, wetenschappelijk en politiek gebied, maar ook in een tijd van oorlog, pest en vervolging, verscheen in de Duitse stad Heidelberg in de Palts in 1563 een geschrift dat zich snel over de wereld zou verspreiden en dat sindsdien geliefd is bij veel gereformeerden: de Heidelbergse Catechismus, een leerboekje voor jongeren dat de gereformeerde geloofsleer in vraag- en antwoordvorm beschrijft en dat spoedig daarna functioneerde als belijdenisgeschrift.

God, Heidelberg en Oranje, 450 jaar Heidelbergse Catechismus is het begeleidende boek bij de tentoonstellingen Macht des Glaubens. 450 Jahre Heidelberger Katechismus in Heidelberg en Oranje en religie. Tentoonstelling in het kader van 450 jaar Heidelbergse Catechismus, 1563-2013 in Apeldoorn. Het verschijnt in het Nederlands, Duits en Engels en is het resultaat van de samenwerking tussen Paleis Het Loo Nationaal Museum, de Staatliche Schlosser und Garten Baden-Wurttemberg, het Kurpfalzisches Museum der Stadt Heidelberg, de Johannes a Lasco Bibliothek in Emden en het internationale platform Refo500

Met meer dan 400 prachtige full colour afbeeldingen bij de wetenschappelijke bijdragen en bij de beschrijvingen van objecten uit de tentoonstellingen in Heidelberg en Apeldoorn biedt dit boek een uniek overzicht van een boeiende periode in de geschiedenis en van het succesverhaal van de Heidelbergse Catechismus.

Calvin and His Influence, 1509-2009
The year 2009 marked Calvin's 500th birthday. This volume collects papers initially written as the plenary addresses for the largest international scholarly conference held in connection with this anniversary, organized in Geneva by the Institute of Reformation History. The organizers chose as theme for the conference "Calvin and His Influence 1509-2009," hoping to stimulate reflection about what Calvin's ideas and example have meant across the five centuries since his lifetime, as well as about how much validity the classic interpretations that have linked his legacy to fundamental features of modernity such as democracy, capitalism, or science still retain. In brief, the story that emerges from the book is as follows: In the generations immediately after Calvin's death, he became an authority whose writings were widely cited by leading "Calvinist" theologians, but he was in fact just one of several Reformed theologians of his generation who were much appreciated by these theologians. In the eighteenth century, his writings began to be far less frequently cited. Even in Reformed circles what was now most frequently recalled was his action during the Servetus affair, so that he now started to be widely criticized in those quarters of the Reformed tradition that were now attached to the idea of toleration or the ideal of a free church. In the nineteenth century, his theology was recovered again in a variety of different contexts, while scholars established the monument to his life and work that was the Opera Calvini and undertook major studies of his life and times.

Theodore de Beze. Zijn leven, zijn werk
Rijk geillustreerde en informatieve uitgave over een onbekende reformator. Theodoor Beza (1519-1605) is in 1564 de vanzelfsprekende opvolger van Calvijn in Geneve. De Reformatie die Calvijn krachtig vorm had gegeven, houdt niet op met zijn sterven. In zijn schaduw is het Beza die opstaat en het werk voortzet. Zo staat Beza bekend: de opvolger, de man in de schaduw. Een nadere kennismaking met Beza brengt echter verschillende verrassende aspecten van zijn leven en werk aan het licht. Hij was zoveel meer dan een opvolger.

Barth, H.M.
The Theology of Martin Luther. A Critical Assessment
Does Martin Luther have anything to say to us today?

Nearly five-hundred years after the beginning of the Reformation, Hans-Martin Barth explores that question in this comprehensive and critical evaluation of Luthers theology. Rich in its extent and in its many facets, Barths didactically well-planned work begins with clarifications about obsolete and outdated images of Luther that could obstruct access to the Reformerfor example, the question of the Peasants' War and Luther's attitude toward other religions and superstition. The second part covers the whole of Martin Luther's theology. Having divided Luthers theology into twelve sub-sections, Barth ends each one of these with an honest and frank assessment of what today can be salvaged and whats got to go. In the final section he gives his summation: an honestly critical appropriation of Luthers theology can still be existentially inspiring and globally relevant for the twenty-first century.

Giambattista Vico. Keys to the "New Science". Translations, Commentaries, and Essays
Responses to the Enlightenment: An Exchange on Foundations, Faith, and Community is a dialogue between Hendrik Hart and William Sweet, two philosophers who identify themselves as Christians, and who seek to respond to the challenges of the Enlightenment and its legacy. The authors approach the relation of faith to reason, however, in very different ways: Hart from the perspective of the Calvinian tradition and postmodern philosophy, Sweet from the Catholic tradition and analytic philosophy. Among the topics discussed are the nature of religious faith and of reason, liberalism and orthodoxy in religion, the relation of religious experience and rationality, and building community in a religiously and culturally pluralistic world. This exchange presents two distinctive perspectives to some of the major challenges of the reason to religious belief, but seeks to find common ground between them.

Early Modern Confraternities in Europe and the Americas
Scholars have long recognized the significant role that confraternities, or lay brotherhoods, played in the religious life of medieval and early modern Catholicism. As well as helping shape the devotions of a large section of the laity, confraternities became a focus for charitable giving and social welfare, cultural life, and political-religious struggles. Taking a broad chronological and geographical approach, this collection of essays tackles these important issues, addressing the varied and fluid nature of confraternities and their relationship to wider society. The volume is organized so as to exemplify the diversity of confraternities across time and space, demonstrating their importance and interest to scholars from a range of disciplines. In doing so, it brings out how confraternal associations might adapt to changing conditions and needs, and play roles against a background of tension (whether between Catholics and Protestants, Gaels and English, or local social factions). Geographically examples are cited from well-studied areas like Italy, and lesser-known ones like Ireland, the Netherlands and South America. Contributors cover a whole variety of topics such as Marian devotions, treatment of the poor and condemned prisoners, religious painting, architecture, poetry and drama. By examining the broad range of confraternities, suggesting some comparisons with other types of fraternal organizations across time and space, this volume should encourage more interdisciplinary and international studies of these highly significant associations and institutions

De onbekende Calvijn. Een veelkeurig portret
Kent u de spottende Calvijn, de flexibele Calvijn, de onbeheerste Calvijn en de Belgische Calvijn? Ook na het Calvijnjaar valt er nog veel te ontdekken.

Een aantal auteurs belicht diverse aspecten van Calvijn die nog nauwelijks aandacht gekregen hebben. Het resultaat is een boek vol nieuwe informatie over een reformator van wie we alles al dachten te weten. Het brengt Calvijn dichterbij als mens, als vriend, als christen.

Met bijdragen van o.a. H. Selderhuis, E.A. de Boer, A. Huijgen, M.A. van den Berg, A. de Reuver en W. Balke.

Geleerden en politiek. De politieke ideeen van Justus Lipsius in de vroegmoderne Nederlanden
De Brabantse humanist Justus Lipsius (1547-1606) verwierf in zijn eigen tijd naam en faam met zijn filologische en antiquarische studies, en meer nog met zijn filosofische en politieke werken. De Politica (1589), het politiek handboek dat hij schreef toen hij in Leiden verbleef, is al uitvoerig bestudeerd. Maar de Monita et exempla politica (1605), een vorstenspiegel voor Aartshertog Albrecht die dateert uit de periode toen hij weer in Leuven was en die expliciet bedoeld was als complement bij de Politica, is nog maar amper in het onderzoek betrokken. In deze studie wordt de Monita uitvoerig voorgesteld en wordt nagegaan hoe het werk werd gelezen in de Nederlanden in de eerste helft van de zeventiende eeuw. Aan de basis van deze receptiestudie ligt een vernieuwende methodologie die basisideeen uit de literatuurstudie en de geschiedenis van het politieke denken combineert, aangevuld met inzichten uit aanverwante onderzoekstakken. De aanpak focust op verschillende genres, waarbij nauwgezette analyses hand in hand gaan met ruimere syntheseoverzichten.

Enforcing Reformation in Ireland and Scotland, 1550-1700
The last few years have witnessed a growing interest in the study of the Reformation period within the three kingdoms of Britain, revolutionizing the way in which scholars think about the relationships between England, Scotland and Ireland. Nevertheless, it is a fact that the story of the British Reformation is still dominated by studies of England, an imbalance that this book will help to right. By adopting an international perspective, the essays in this volume look at the motives, methods and impact of enforcing the Protestant Reformation in Ireland and Scotland. The juxtaposition of these two countries illuminates the similarities and differences of their social and political situations whiles qualifying many of the conclusions of recent historical work in each country. As well as investigating what 'reformation' meant in the early modern period, and examining its literal, rhetorical, doctrinal, moral and political implications, the volume also explores what enforcing these various reformations could involve. Taken as a whole, this volume offers a fascinating insight into how the political authorities in Scotland and Ireland attempted, with varying degrees of success, to impose Protestantism on their countries. By comparing the two situations, and placing them in the wider international picture, our understanding of European confessionalization is further enhanced

Boulton, M.
Life in God. John Calvin, Practical Formation and the future of Protestant Theology
Contemplates Calvin's Institutes as practical spiritual theology
For many today, John Calvin is best known as an austere, strictly intellectual teacher of Protestant doctrine. But Matthew Myer Boulton reads him very differently, arguing that for Calvin, Christian theology is properly conceived and articulated primarily for the sake of everyday, practical formation through the church's treasury of spiritual disciplines.
Although Calvin famously opposed the cloister, Boulton shows that his purpose was not the eradication but rather the democratization of spiritual disciplines often associated with monasticism. Ordinary disciples, too, Calvin insisted, should embrace such formative practices as close scriptural study, daily prayer and worship, regular Psalm singing, and frequent celebration of the Lord's Supper. This deeply formational approach to Christian doctrine provides a fruitful template for Protestant theology today -- and tomorrow.

German Histories in the Age of Reformations, 1400-1650
This book studies the connections between the political reform of the Holy Roman Empire and the German lands around 1500 and the sixteenth-century religious reformations, both Protestant and Catholic. It argues that the character of the political changes (dispersed sovereignty, local autonomy) prevented both a general reformation of the Church before 1520 and a national reformation thereafter. The resulting settlement maintained the public peace through politically structured religious communities (confessions), thereby avoiding further religious strife and fixing the confessions into the Empire's constitution. The Germans' emergence into the modern era as a people having two national religions was the reformation's principal legacy to modern Germany.

Guido de Bres. Zijn leven, zijn belijden
Een monument voor de opsteller van de Nederlandse Geloofsbelijdenis Guido de Bres (1522-1567) moest voor zijn werk als glasschilder de Bijbel lezen. Op grond daarvan ging hij over tot de reformatie. Hij werd rondtrekkend prediker in de zuidelijke Nederlanden en later predikant de Doornik. Daar stelde hij de Nederlandse Geloofsbelijdenis op, die hij over de muur van de citadel van Doornik wierp om duidelijk te maken dat gereformeerden geen radicale dopers waren. In 1565 werd hij opgepakt en uiteindelijk ter dood verdoordeeld. Dit boek richt een monument voor hem op. Het beschrijft zijn leven, zijn geschriften, zijn opvattingen en zijn invloed.

Bres, Guido de
De Nederlandse geloofsbelijdenis. Met kanttekeningen en uitgeschreven bewijsteksten.
Ondanks de rijke inhoud van de Nederlandse Geloofsbelijdenis is deze minder bekend dan de Heidelbergse Catechismus. Het doel van deze uitgave is dan ook om de Geloofsbelijdenis meer onder de aandacht te brengen. De inleiding van dit boek bestaat uit een beknopte beschrijving van: de kerkgeschiedenis voor en tijdens de reformatie, het leven en werk van Guido de Bres en de geschiedenis van de Geloofsbelijdenis. Het hoofddeel van deze uitgave bestaat uit de tekst van de Nederlandse Geloofsbelijdenis, voorzien van kanttekeningen en uitgeschreven bewijsteksten. De kanttekeningen geven waar nodig een toelichting op de tekst. De uitgeschreven Bijbelteksten geven aan dat de Geloofsbelijdenis geheel op Gods Woord is gegrond.

Een boek waarin we De Bres het meest persoonlijk leren kennen. Hij laat zich in dit werk in zijn hart kijken. Niet alleen de verhandelingen over het sacrament van het Heilig Avondmaal, maar ook de beroemd geworden brieven aan zijn gemeente te Valenciennes, en die aan zijn vrouw en moeder, geven getuigenis van zijn standvastigheid in het ware geloof.

Het wapen van het christelijk geloof
Guido de Bres (1522-1567) is alom bekend als auteur van de Nederlandse Geloofsbelijdenis. Het eerste boek dat hij schreef, was Le baston de la foy chrestienne, waarvan de eerste druk in 1555 verscheen. Het is geschreven om degene die de roomse kerk verlaten een wapen in handen te geven tegen de dwalingen van Rome. In de eerste hoofdstukken bewijst hij aan de hand van Bijbelcitaten de eigenschappen van de drie Goddelijke Personen. Vervolgens de thema's: de Kerk, de Doop Heilig Avondmaal enzovoort. Deze is nu voor het eerst verschenen in het Nederlands onder de titel: Het wapen van het christelijk geloof.

Oorsprong en weerlegging van de wederdopers
Oorsprong en weerlegging van de wederdopers biedt een beschrijving van de geschiedenis van de wederdopers en een weerlegging van hun opvattingen. De verbreiding van het anabaptisme heeft Guido de Bres zeer verontrust. Zij waren in zijn ogen een gevaar voor de opkomende gereformeerde gemeenten vanwege hun radicale optreden, en niet minder vanwege hun on-Bijbelse opvattingen. Hij voelde zich daarom gedrongen om met alle kracht tegen de wederdopers te strijden. Dit uitvoerige werk verscheen in 1565 onder de titel: La racine, source et fondement des anabaptistes ou rebaptisez de nostre temps. Het is opnieuw uit het Frans vertaald, en bestaat uit drie boeken:
Boek I gaat over de oorsprong van de wederdopers.
Boek II gaat over de christologie. De leer van de twee naturen van Christus was een theologisch onderwerp waarop de wederdopers duidelijk een andere visie hadden dan de gereformeerden.
Boek III gaat vooral over de doop in het algemeen en over de kinderdoop in onderscheid met de volwassen doop.

Early Modern Women in the Low Countries. Feminizing Sources and Interpretations of the Past
Combining historical, historiographical, museological, and touristic analysis, this study investigates how late medieval and early modern women of the Low Countries expressed themselves through texts, art, architecture and material objects, how they were represented by contemporaries, and how they have been interpreted in modern academic and popular contexts.

Broomhall and Spinks analyse late medieval and early modern women's opportunities to narrate their experiences and ideas, as well as the processes that have shaped their representation in the heritage and cultural tourism of the Netherlands and Belgium today. The authors study female-authored objects such as familial and political letters, dolls' houses, account books; visual sources, funeral monuments, and buildings commissioned by female patrons; and further artworks as well as heritage sites, streetscapes, souvenirs and clothing with gendered historical resonances.

Employing an innovative range of materials from written sources to artworks, material objects, heritage sites and urban precincts, the authors argue that interpretations of late medieval and early modern women's experiences by historians and art scholars interact with presentations by cultural and heritage tourism providers in significant ways that deserve closer interrogation by feminist researchers.

Eerst de Waarheid, dan de Vrede. Jacub Revius (1586-1658)
Enny de Bruijn combineert in deze biografie voor het eerst Revius als dichter, theoloog en geschiedschrijver en komt zo tot verrassende inzichten over de leef- en denkwereld van een van de belangrijkste gereformeerde opinieleiders in de Gouden Eeuw. In deze toegankelijk geschreven studie vertelt ze onder meer het spannende verhaal van Revius' gevecht met de filosoof Rene Descartes. Ze laat zien hoe gepassioneerd Revius zich mengde in discussies over de regentenpolitiek, de omgang met rooms-katholieken, joden en moslims, de predestinatieleer, literatuur en astronomie. Dankzij de combinatie van theologische en literaire bronnen komt de figuur van Revius in een nieuw licht te staan.

Karlstadt and the Origins of the Eucharistic Controversy. A Study of the Circulation of Ideas
The debate over the Lord's Supper had momentous consequences for the Reformation, causing the division of the evangelical movement, influencing the formation of political alliances, and contributing to cultural differences among the Protestant territories of Germany and Switzerland.
Karlstadt and the Origins of the Eucharistic Controversy is the first full-length study of the beginning of that debate. Going beyond the traditional focus on Martin Luther and Ulrich Zwingli, it emphasizes the diversity of the "sacramentarian" challenge to traditional belief in Christ's corporeal presence and re-evaluates the significance of Luther's colleague, Andreas Bodenstein von Karlstadt, to the debate.
The book describes Luther's earliest criticisms of the mass and the efforts in Wittenberg to reform liturgical praxis to correspond with his ideas. It then looks at pamphlets written by other reformers to show how Luther's understanding of the sacrament was adapted and modified outside of Wittenberg. It shows how Karlstadt's eucharistic pamphlets introduced into the public debate several arguments that would become standard Reformed criticisms of the Lutheran position.
The book also demonstrates the influence not only of Erasmus but also of John Wyclif and the Hussites for discussions of the sacrament, highlights the role of the reformers of Basel and Strasbourg for developing the "Zwinglian" understanding of the Lord's Supper, and draws attention to the early eucharistic theology of the Silesians Kaspar Schwenckfeld and Valentin Krautwald.
The book will become an indispensable guide for readers seeking to understand the issues surrounding the outbreak of the eucharistic controversy in the sixteenth century.

The Great Parchment. Flavius Mithridates’ Latin Translation, The Hebrew Text, and an English Version
A joint project of the Institut fur Judaistik of the Freie Universitat Berlin and the Istituto Nazional di Studi sul Rinascimento to publish (in critical editions) the kabbalistic anthology prepared by F. Mithridates for Pico della Mirandola

This is a text of a few extremely dense and symbolic pages. Some marginal annotations prove that Pico read it, perhaps with the assistance of Mithridates. The work was probably written at the beginning of the 14th century by an author whose name remains unknown to us. Most likely, he was an Italian kabbalist. The title Great Parchment refers to the physical appearance of the text. In fact, it was originally written on a large parchment scroll, together with drawings depicting the various stages of the emanation. In other words the written text was conceived as a commentary on the graphic representation of the sefirot, in a structure where theoretical analysis and visual depiction were intended as a unit. Notwithstanding the hermetic style, the Great Parchment is a forgotten masterpiece of kabbalistic literature. All together the work contains seventeen short tales, which offer a gallery of biblical characters conceived as actors in a sefirotic theater, like a scene where the sefirot wear the clothes and share the feelings of the protagonists of the Scriptures.

Calvijn, Johannes
De eeuwige voorbeschikking Gods
Voor Calvijn was uitverkiezing een Bijbels gegeven en ervaringsfeit tegelijk. Te midden van de verschrikkelijke vervolgingen die de gereformeerden moesten verduren, waarbij duizenden onschuldigen op de brandstapel terechtkwamen, is er voor Calvijn geen grotere troost dan die van God, die mensen vasthoudt en verkiest. Deze verkiezingsleer stamt uit de Heilige Schrift en is steeds overgeleverd.

Calvijn is de eerste die Christus in het midden stelt van deze leer, als de spiegel van de verkiezing. Daarin is Karl Barth hem in de twintigste eeuw gevolgd. Deze pastorale spits vinden we terug in de twee andere teksten die in deze bundel zijn opgenomen: de tekst van een Bijbelkring door Calvijn over de verkiezingsleer en een preek van Calvijn.

Calvijn, Johannes
Institutie - 2 dln
De grote theoloog van de Reformatie, Johannes Calvijn, is het meest bekend geworden door zijn Institutie - een theologische inleiding op de Bijbel en een rechtvaardiging van de principes van de Reformatie. Nog altijd wordt de Institutie beschouwd als het standaardwerk van de gereformeerde theologie. Van de Institutie verschenen vanaf 1536 verschillende edities, totdat uiteindelijk in 1559 de meest complete versie gepubliceerd werd. Van deze complete editie van 1559 verscheen in oktober 2009 een volledig nieuwe vertaling.

De vertaler, dr. C.A. de Niet, is classicus en neerlandicus. Zijn vertaling wordt gekenmerkt door betrouwbaarheid en leesbaarheid. Bij zijn vertaalwerk werd hij terzijde gestaan door een redactie, bestaande uit dr. W. van 't Spijker, dr. W. de Greef, dr. W.H.Th. Moehn en dr. A. de Reuver.

De laatste Nederlandse vertaling van de Institutie, die van dr. A. Sizoo, dateert van 1931. De nieuwe vertaling van De Niet is de vijfde complete Nederlandse vertaling sinds 1559.

Calvijn, Johannes
Institutie, set 3 dln
De Institutie van Johannes Calvijn werd in zijn uiteindelijke vorm gepubliceerd in 1559. Vele jaren van bijschaven aan eerdere edities waren daar aan voorafgegaan. In zijn definitieve gedaante is de Institutie of Onderwijzing in de Christelijke Godsdienst een toonbeeld van theologisch meesterschap. Calvijn wilde de jonge reformatorische gemeenschap van toen een boek in handen geven, dat richting gaf in het denken over God, mens en wereld. Het doel en het belang van de Institutie zijn in eerste aanleg catechetisch van aard. De invloed van dit grootse en monumentale werk was diepgaand en bleef niet beperkt tot de ontstaansperiode. Door de eeuwen heen bleef de Institutie gelden als een richtinggevende en gezaghebbende samenvatting van fundamentele reformatorische inzichten. Vele generaties van gelovigen hebben de Institutie gebruikt om hun inzicht in het christelijk geloof te verbreden en te verdiepen. Deze functie heeft de Institutie behouden tot heden.

The European Reformation, 2nd Edition
Since its first appearance in 1991, The European Reformation has offered a clear, integrated, and coherent analysis and explanation of how Christianity in Western and Central Europe from Iceland to Hungary, from the Baltic to the Pyrenees splintered into separate Protestant and Catholic identities and movements. Catholic Christianity at the end of the Middle Ages was not at all a uniformly 'decadent' or corrupt institution: it showed clear signs of cultural vigour and inventiveness. However, it was vulnerable to a particular kind of criticism, if ever its claims to mediate the grace of God to believers were challenged.
Martin Luther proposed a radically new insight into how God forgives human sin. In this new theological vision, rituals did not 'purify' people; priests did not need to be set apart from the ordinary community; the church needed no longer to be an international body. For a critical 'Reformation moment', this idea caught fire in the spiritual, political, and community life of much of Europe. Lay people seized hold of the instruments of spiritual authority, and transformed religion into something simpler, more local, more rooted in their own community. So were born the many cultures, liturgies, musical traditions and prayer lives of the countries of Protestant Europe.

This new edition embraces and responds to developments in scholarship over the past twenty years. Substantially re-written and updated, with both a thorough revision of the text and fully updated references and bibliography, it nevertheless preserves the distinctive features of the original, including its clearly thought-out integration of theological ideas and political cultures, helping to bridge the gap between theological and social history, and the use of helpful charts and tables that made the original so easy to use.

Creating Christian Granada. Society and Religious Culture in an Old-World Frontier City, 1492-1600
Creating Christian Granada provides a richly detailed examination of a critical and transitional episode in Spain's march to global empire. The city of Granada - Islam's final bastion on the Iberian peninsula - surrendered to the control of Spain's 'Catholic Monarchs' Isabella and Ferdinand on January 2, 1492. Over the following century, Spanish state and Church officials, along with tens of thousands of Christian immigrant settlers, transformed the formerly Muslim city into a Christian one.

With constant attention to situating the Granada case in the broader comparative contexts of the medieval reconquista tradition on the one hand and sixteenth-century Spanish imperialism in the Americas on the other, Coleman carefully charts the changes in the conquered city's social, political, religious, and physical landscapes. In the process, he sheds light on the local factors contributing to the emergence of tensions between the conquerors and Granada's formerly Muslim, 'native' morisco community in the decades leading up to the crown-mandated expulsion of most of the city's moriscos in 1569-1570.

Despite the failure to assimilate the moriscos, Granada's status as a frontier Christian community under construction fostered among much of the immigrant community innovative religious reform ideas and programs that shaped in direct ways a variety of church-wide reform movements in the era of the ecumenical Council of Trent (1545-1563). Coleman concludes that the process by which reforms of largely Granadan origin contributed significantly to transformations in the Church as a whole forces a reconsideration of traditional 'top-down' conceptions of sixteenth-century Catholic reform.

Synode over gewetensvrijheid. Een nauwgezet onderzoek in de vergadering gehouden in het jaar 1582 te Vrijburgh
Een pleidooi voor principiele godsdienstvrijheid, rationele discussie en verdraagzaamheid van de hand van medestander Willem van Oranje waar we in het huidige tolerantiedebat zeker ons voordeel mee kunnen doen.

Dit boek is het verslag van een fictief 'godsdienstgesprek'. Coornhert voert vertegenwoordigers uit de verschillende kampen ten tonele die hij soms letterlijk citeert (o.a. Beza, Calvijn, Du Plessis-Mornay en Bullinger). Gamaliel (pseudoniem voor Coornhert) is de onpartijdige, wijze scheidsrechter. 'Synode over de gewetensvrijheid' is niet alleen een belangrijk tijdsdocument: door zijn doelstelling, bevordering van de religievrede, en zijn rijkdom aan argumenten kunnen we in het huidige tolerantiedebat zeker ons voordeel doen met de lessen van déze Hollandse meester.

Dirk Volkertzoon Coornhert (1522-1590) was een vooraanstaand medestander van Willem van Oranje. In zijn sterk anti-dogmatische benadering van vraagstukken van religie (politiek) nam hij motieven op die voor hem leefden (Erasmus) en na hem (de remonstranten, Grotius, Spinoza) werkzaam zouden blijven.

Death by Effigy: A Case from the Mexican Inquisition
On July 21, 1578, the Mexican town of Tecamachalco awoke to news of a scandal. A doll-like effigy hung from the door of the town's church. Its two-faced head had black chicken feathers instead of hair. Each mouth had a tongue sewn onto it, one with a forked end, the other with a gag tied around it. Signs and symbols adorned the effigy, including a sambenito, the garment that the Inquisition imposed on heretics. Below the effigy lay a pile of firewood. Taken together, the effigy, signs, and symbols conveyed a deadly message: the victim of the scandal was a Jew who should burn at the stake. Over the course of four years, inquisitors conducted nine trials and interrogated dozens of witnesses, whose testimonials revealed a vivid portrait of friendship, love, hatred, and the power of rumor in a Mexican colonial town. A story of dishonor and revenge, Death by Effigy also reveals the power of the Inquisition's symbols, their susceptibility to theft and misuse, and the terrible consequences of doing so in the New World. Recently established and anxious to assert its authority, the Mexican Inquisition relentlessly pursued the perpetrators. Lying, forgery, defamation, rape, theft, and physical aggression did not concern the Inquisition as much as the misuse of the Holy Office's name, whose political mission required defending its symbols. Drawing on inquisitorial papers from the Mexican Inquisition's archive, Luis R. Corteguera weaves a rich narrative that leads readers into a world vastly different from our own, one in which symbols were as powerful as the sword.

The Impact of the Kabbalah in the Seventeenth Century. The Life and Thought of Francis Mercury van Helmont (1614-1698)
The progressive nature of Francis Mercury van Helmont's thought was based on his deep commitment to the esoteric doctrines of the Lurianic Kabbalah. With his friend Christian Knorr van Rosenroth, van Helmont edited the "Kabbalah Denudata" (1677-1684), the largest collection of Lurianic Kabbalistic texts available to Christians up to that time. Because the subject matter of this work appears so difficult and arcane, it has never been appreciated as a significant text for understanding the emergence of modern thought. However one can find in it the basis for the faith in science, the belief in progress and the pluralism characteristic of later western thought. The Lurianic Kabbalah thus deserves a place it has never received in histories of western scientific and cultural developments.

Coward, B., J. Swann (eds)
Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theory in Early Modern Europe. From the Waldensians to the French Revolution
For many generations, Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot, the 'Man in the Iron Mask' and the 'Devils of Loudun' have offered some of the most compelling images of the early modern period. Conspiracles, real or imagined, were an essential feature of early modern life, offering a seemingly rational and convincing explanation for patterns of political and social behaviour. This volume examines conspiracies and conspiracy theory from a broad historical and interdisciplinary perspective, by combining the theoretical approach of the history of ideas with specific examples from the period. Each contribution addresses a number of common themes, such as the popularity of conspiracy theory as a mode of explanation through a series of original case studies. Individual chapters examine, for example, why witches, religious minorities and other groups were perceived in conspiratorial terms, and how far, if at all, these attitudes were challenged or redefined by the Enlightenment. Cultural influences on conspiracy theory are also discussed, particularly in those chapters dealing with the relationship between literature and politics. As prevailing notions of royal sovereignty equated open opposition with treason, almost any political activity had to be clandestine in nature, and conspiracy theory was central to interpretations of early modern politics. Factions and cabals abounded in European courts as a result, and their actions were frequently interpreted in conspiratorial terms. By the late eighteenth century it seemed as if this had begun to change, and in Britain in particular the notion of a 'loyal opposition' had begun to take shape. Yet the outbreak of the French Revolution was frequently explained in conspiratorial terms, and subsequently European rulers and their subjects remained obsessed with conspiracies both real and imagined. This volume helps us to understand why

Marks of an Absolute Witch. Evidentiary Dilemmas in Early Modern England
This work explores the social foundation of evidence law in a specific historical social and cultural context - the debate concerning the proof of the crime of witchcraft in early modern England. In this period the question of how to prove the crime of witchcraft was the centre of a public debate and even those who strongly believed in the reality of witchcraft had considerable concerns regarding its proof. In a typical witchcraft crime there were no eyewitnesses, and since torture was not a standard measure in English criminal trials, confessions could not be easily obtained. The scarcity of evidence left the fact-finders with a pressing dilemma. On the one hand, using the standard evidentiary methods might have jeopardized any chance of prosecuting and convicting extremely dangerous criminals. On the other hand, lowering the evidentiary standards might have led to the conviction of innocent people.

Based on the analysis of 157 primary sources, the book presents a picture of a diverse society whose members tried to influence evidentiary techniques to achieve their distinct goals and to bolster their social standing. In so doing this book further uncovers the interplay between the struggle with the evidentiary dilemma and social characteristics (such as class, position along the centre/periphery axis and the professional affiliation) of the participants in the debate. In particular, attention is focused on the professions of law, clergy and medicine. This book finds clear affinity between the professional affiliation and the evidentiary positions of the participants in the debate, demonstrating how the diverse social players and groups employed evidentiary strategies as a resource, to mobilize their interests. The witchcraft debate took place within the formative era of modern evidence law, and the book highlights the mutual influences between the witch trials and major legal developments.

De last van veel geluk, de geschiedenis van Nederland 1555-1702
Goedkope heruitgave

In 1555 trad Karel V terug als Heer der Nederlanden en in 1702 overleed koning-stadhouder Willem III. In de anderhalve eeuw daartussen ontstond niet alleen het zelfstandige Nederland, het groeide ook uit tot een wereldmacht (en raakte die status na 1702 snel weer kwijt). Deze turbulente periode uit de vaderlandse geschiedenis wordt door oud-professor Van Deursen diepgaand geanalyseerd. Hij doet dat 'ouderwets': hij vertelt zijn verhaal chronologisch, met nadruk op politieke en religieuze ontwikkelingen en aan de hand van grote mannen: Willem van Oranje, Johan van Oldenbarnevelt, Frederik Hendrik, Johan de Witt. Maar 'ouderwets' is niet 'achterhaald' - integendeel. Van Deursen neemt alle recente literatuur in zijn beschouwingen mee en komt met een prikkelend genuanceerd betoog dat die complexe periode uiterst inzichtelijk maakt.

Deutsch, Y.
Judaism in Christian Eyes. Early Modern Description of Jews and Judaism
This book examines Christian ethnographic writing about the Jews in early modern Europe, offering a systematic historical analysis of this literary genre and arguing its importance for better understanding both the period in general and Jewish-Christian relations in particular. The book focuses on nearly 80 texts from Western Europe (mostly Germany) that describe the customs and ceremonies of the contemporary Jews, containing both descriptions and illustrations of their subjects.

Deutsch is one of the first scholars to study these unique writings in extensive detail. He examines books in which Christian authors describe Jewish life and provides new interpretations of Christian perceptions of Jews, Christian Hebraism, and the attention paid by the Hebraist to contemporary Jews and Judaism. Since many of the authors were converts, studying their books offers new insights into conversion during the period. Their work presents new perspectives the study of religion, developments in the field of anthropology and ethnography, and internal Christian debates that arose from the portrayal of Jewish life. Despite the lack of attention by modern scholars, some of these books were extremely popular in their time and represent one of the important ways by which Jews were perceived during the period.

The key claim of the study is that, although almost all of the descriptions of Jewish customs are accurate, the authors chose to concentrate mainly on details that show the Jewish ceremonies as anti-Christian, superstitious, and ridiculous; these details also reveal the deviation of Judaism from the Biblical law. Deutsch suggests that these ethnographic descriptions are better defined as polemical ethnographies and argues that the texts, despite their polemical tendency, represent a shift from writing about Judaism as a religion to writing about Jews, and from a mode of writing based on stereotypes to one based on direct contact and observation.

Duffy, Eamon
Fires of Faith: Catholic England under Mary Tudor
The reign of Mary Tudor has been remembered as an era of sterile repression, when a reactionary monarch launched a doomed attempt to reimpose Catholicism on an unwilling nation. Above all, the burning alive of more than 280 men and women for their religious beliefs seared the rule of 'Bloody Mary' into the protestant imagination, as an alien aberration in the onward and upward march of the English-speaking peoples.In this controversial reassessment, a leading reformation historian argues that Mary's regime was neither inept nor backward-looking. Led by the Queen's cousin, Cardinal Reginald Pole, Mary's church dramatically reversed the religious revolution imposed under the child king Edward VI. Inspired by the values of the European Counter-Reformation, the cardinal and the queen reinstated the papacy and launched an effective propaganda campaign through pulpit and press.Even the most notorious aspect of the regime, the burnings, proved devastatingly effective. Only the death of the childless queen and her cardinal on the same day in November 1558 brought the protestant Elizabeth to the throne, and thereby changed the course of English history.

Duffy, Eamon
Saints, Sacrilege and Sedition. Religion and Conflict in the Tudor Reformations
Eamon Duffy publishes a book on the broad sweep of English Reformation history, including a study of Late Medieval religion and society. Professor Eamon Duffy explores the broad sweep of the English Reformation, and the ways in which that Reformation has been written about. Tracing the fraught history of religious change in Tudor England, and the retellings of that history to shape a protestant national identity, he emphasizes the importance of the study of late medieval religion and material culture for our understanding of this most formative and fascinating of eras. Getting to grips with the misconceptions, discontinuities and dilemmas which have dogged the history of Tudor religion, he traces the lived experience of Catholicism in an age of upheaval: from what it meant to be a Catholic in early Tudor England; through the nature of militant Catholicism at the height of the conflict; to the after-life of Tudor Catholicism and the ways in which the 'old religion' was remembered and spoken about in the England of Shakespeare.

Spreekwoorden. Adagia
Spreekwoorden en uitdrukkingen als `Een noodzakelijk kwaad , `De hoorn des overvloeds , `Belofte maakt schuld kennen we allemaal, maar waar komen ze vandaan? En wat betekenen ze nu precies? Erasmus verzamelde meer dan vierduizend bekende spreekwoorden, die hij bundelde onder de naam Adagia. Voor dit vijfde deel van het Verzameld werk maakte Jeanine De Landtsheer een uitgebreide selectie van de mooiste, interessantste en grappigste, bekende en minder bekende spreekwoorden. Spreekwoorden is de neerslag van Erasmus uitgebreide kennis en intense studie van de klassieke literatuur. De verzameling was al tijdens zijn leven een groot succes: Spreekwoorden was een van de eerste bestsellers in de toen nog korte geschiedenis van de boekdrukkunst. Het is door zijn opzet en uitwerking het ideale bladerboek voor op ieders salontafel of nachtkastje.

Ettenhuber, K.
Donnes Augustine: Renaissance Cultures of Interpretation
The poet and preacher John Donne (1572-1631) was one of the most influential authors of early modern England. Donne's Augustine examines his response to an iconic figure in the history of Western religious thought: Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430). Katrin Ettenhuber argues that Renaissance culture saw not only a revival of the classics, but was equally indebted to the intellectual and literary legacy of the Church Fathers. The study recovers an Augustinian tradition of interpretation which permeated the religious world of the period, but which has until now been largely overlooked. She presents a comprehensive re-evaluation of Donne's writings, ranging from the poems to less familiar prose works, situates him carefully in the poetic, intellectual, and political contexts which frame his works, and engages with recent developments in both literary and historical studies. Donne's Augustine is the first sustained study of Donne's reading practices, and of the theological sources which shaped his thought. It discovers a range of medieval and early modern texts which transformed the imagination of literary writers in the period but which have been neglected so far: devotional manuals, Scripture commentaries, and religious commonplace books (often in Latin). The study pays close attention to the intellectual and political conditions which informed the reception of Augustine's works, and offers detailed readings of Donne's texts which illuminate the literary aspects of his patristic heritage. Donne's Augustine makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the larger reading and writing culture of Renaissance England, and of the religious debates and controversies in the decades leading up to the Civil War.

Francisca de los Apostoles
The Inquisition of Francisca. A Sixteenth-Century Visionary on Trial
Inspired by a series of visions, Francisca de los Apostoles (1539-after 1578) and her sister Isabella attempted in 1573 to organize a beaterio, a lay community of pious women devoted to the religious life, to offer prayers and penance for the reparation of human sins, especially those of corrupt clerics. But their efforts to minister to the poor of Toledo and to call for general ecclesiastical reform were met with resistance, first from local religious officials and, later, from the Spanish Inquisition. By early 1575, the Inquisitional tribunal in Toledo had received several statements denouncing Francisca from some of the very women she had tried to help, as well as from some of her financial and religious sponsors. Francisca was eventually arrested, imprisoned by the Inquisition, and investigated for religious fraud. This book contains what little is known about Francisca - the several letters she wrote as well as the transcript of her trial - and offers modern readers a perspective on the unique role and status of religious women in sixteenth-century Spain. Chronicling the drama of Francisca's interrogation and her spirited but ultimately unsuccessful defense, The Inquisition of Francisca - transcribed from more than three hundred folios and published for the first time in any language - will be a valuable resource for both specialists and students of the history and religion of Spain in the sixteenth century.

Catholic Belief and Survival in Late Sixteenth Century Vienna. The Case of Georg Eder (1523-87)
Dr Georg Eder was an extraordinary figure who rose from humble origins to hold a number of high positions at Vienna University and the city's Habsburg court between 1552 and 1584. His increasingly uncompromising Catholicism eventually placed him at odds, however, with many influential figures around him, not least the confessionally moderate Habsburg Emperor, Maximillian II. Pivoting around a dramatic incident in 1573, when Eder's ferocious anti-Lutheran polemic, the Evangelical Inquisition, fell under sharp Imperial condemnation, this book investigates three key aspects of his career. It examines Eder's position as a Catholic in the predominantly Protestant Vienna of his day; the public expression of Eder's Catholicism and the strong Jesuit influence on the same; and Eder's rescue and subsequent survival as a lay advocate of Catholic reform, largely through the alternative protection of the Habsburgs' rivals, the Wittelsbach Dukes of Bavaria. Based on a wide variety of printed and manuscript material, this study contributes to existing historiography by reconstructing the career of one of late sixteenth-century Vienna's most prominent figures. In a broader sense, it also adds significantly to the wider canon of Reformation history by re-examining the nature and extent of Catholicism at the Viennese court in the latter half of the sixteenth century. It concludes by emphasising the importance of influential laity, such as Eder in advancing the cause of Catholic reform, and challenges the prevalent portrayal of the sixteenth-century Catholic laity as an anonymous and largely passive group who merely responded to the ministries of others

Galilei, G.
Om de waarheid en de wetenschap. Brieven en beschouwingen
De aarde beweegt om de zon. Rond deze stelling ontspint zich in Europa in de zestiende en aan het begin van de zeventiende eeuw niet alleen een wetenschappelijk maar vooral een gedenkwaardig publiek debat, waarbij tekstgeleerden het opnemen tegen astronomen. In deze botsing van wereldbeelden speelt de al in zijn tijd wereldvermaarde Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) een centrale rol. In brieven, pamfletten en beschouwingen verdedigt hij de waarheden van de persoonlijke waarneming en het eigen inzicht tegenover de waarheden van de bijbel en de geloofsovertuiging. Om de waarheid en de wetenschap bevat brieven en beschouwingen, die Galilei als pleidooi voor Copernicus publiceerde, ter verdediging van zijn eigen wetenschappelijke denkbeelden, en om zijn tegenstanders van repliek te dienen. Galilei is een intellectuele gigant. Hij hanteert als een geboren retoricus ingenieuze en listige redeneringen om de argumenten van zijn theologische tegenstrevers te ontkrachten. Op virtuoze wijze probeert hij zijn publiek nu eens met zijn elegante logica dan weer met zijn bijtende spot of geraffineerde opbouw te overtuigen. John North beschrijft in een indrukwekkend nawoord niet alleen de natuurwetenschappelijke voorgeschiedenis van Copernicus tot Galilei, maar ook het intrigerende intellectueel-politieke klimaat in Europa aan het eind van de zestiende en het begin van de zeventiende eeuw. Dit is het achttiende deel in de serie Filosofie & Retorica onder redactie van Keimpe Algra, Jeroen Bons, Wessel Krul, Marc van der Poel en Theo Verbe

Bericht van de sterren - Sidereus Nuncius
Verwacht sept 2014

'Het is zeer mooi, een plezier voor het oog, de maan, die bijna zestig maal de straal van de aarde van ons verwijderd is van zo nabij te zien', schrijft Galileo Galilei opgewonden in zijn beroemd en berucht geworden Bericht van de sterren (Sidereus Nuncius, Venetie 1610). 'Ik vind het ook niet weinig belangrijk dat de discussies over het melkwegstelsel, of de melkweg, kunnen worden beeindigd nu ik haar ware aard heb ontdekt'. Het is natuurlijk indrukwekkend om voor het eerst met de zelf ontworpen en historisch nieuwe vinding van de kijkbuis kraters op de maan te ontwaren, de melkweg, de sterrenwolken en de vier planeten die rond de ster Jupiter draaien te zien, maar zijn geestdrift kan nauwelijks overdreven zijn geweest: vierhonderd jaar na dato hebben zijn ontdekkingen nog niets aan belang ingeboet. Door zijn spectaculaire uiteenzettingen, met een uitzonderlijk gevoel voor een groot publiek, bombardeerde Galilei zichzelf tot boegbeeld van de barokke wetenschap.

Het lyrische verslag van zijn waarnemingen, die voor het eerst empirische bewijzen leverden voor Copernicus overtuigingen, droeg hij op aan zijn beschermheer Cosimo II de Medici, groothertog van Toscane, naar wie hij zijn vier ontdekte Medische sterren vernoemt. De revolutionaire waarde van het verslag werd meteen bij verschijning opgemerkt door de belangrijkste wetenschappers en theologen. Pas enkele jaren later, na een redelijk onschuldig traktaat over de status van de wetenschappen, verslikken sommige theologen zich in Galilei's verregaande aanspraken op kennis over de schepping.

Bericht van de sterren is uit het Latijn vertaald door Steven Van Impe en ingeleid door Vincent Icke.

Galileo (transl. by W.R. Shea and M. Davie)
Selected Writings
'Philosophy is written in this great book which is continually open before our eyes - I mean the universe...' Galileo's astronomical discoveries changed the way we look at the world, and our place in the universe. Threatened by the Inquisition for daring to contradict the literal truth of the Bible, Galileo ignited a scientific revolution when he asserted that the Earth moves. This generous selection from his writings contains all the essential texts for a reader to appreciate his lasting significance. Mark Davie's new translation renders Galileo's vigorous Italian prose into clear modern English, while William R. Shea's version of the Latin Sidereal Message makes accessible the book that created a sensation in 1610 with its account of Galileo's observations using the newly invented telescope. All Galileo's contributions to the debate on science and religion are included, as well as key documents from his trial before the Inquisition in 1633. A lively introduction and clear notes give an overview of Galileo's career and explain the scientific and philosophical background to the texts.

Garcia, H.
Islam and the English Enlightenment (1670-1840)
A corrective addendum to Edward Said's Orientalism, this book examines how sympathetic representations of Islam contributed significantly to Protestant Britain's national and imperial identity in the eighteenth century. Taking a historical view, Humberto Garcia combines a rereading of eighteenth-century and Romantic-era British literature with original research on Anglo-Islamic relations. He finds that far from being considered foreign by the era's thinkers, Islamic republicanism played a defining role in Radical Enlightenment debates, most significantly during the Glorious Revolution, French Revolution, and other moments of acute constitutional crisis, as well as in national and political debates about England and its overseas empire. Garcia shows that writers such as Edmund Burke, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, and Percy and Mary Shelley not only were influenced by international events in the Muslim world but also saw in that world and its history a viable path to interrogate, contest, and redefine British concepts of liberty.

This deft exploration of the forgotten moment in early modern history when intercultural exchange between the Muslim world and Christian West was common resituates English literary and intellectual history in the wider context of the global eighteenth century. The direct challenge it poses to the idea of an exclusionary Judeo-Christian Enlightenment serves as an important revision to post-9/11 narratives about a historical clash between Western democratic values and Islam.

Religious Identities in Britain, 1660-1832
Through a series of studies focusing on individuals, this volume highlights the continued importance of religion and religious identity on British life throughout the long eighteenth century. From the puritan divine and scholar Roger Morrice, active at the beginning of the period, to Dean Shipley who died in the reign of George IV, the individuals chosen chart a shifting world of enlightenment and revolution whilst simultaneously reaffirming the tremendous influence that religion continued to bring to bear. For, whilst religion has long enjoyed a central role in the study of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century British history, scholars of religion in the eighteenth century have often felt compelled to prove their subject's worth. Sitting uneasily at the juncture between the early modern and modern worlds, the eighteenth century has perhaps provided historians with an all too convenient peg on which to hang the origins of a secular society, in which religion takes a back-seat to politics, science and economics. Yet, as this study makes clear, in spite of the undoubted innovations and developments of this period, religion continued to be a prime factor in shaping society and culture. By exploring important connections between religion, politics and identity, and asking broad questions about the character of religion in Britain, the contributions put into context many of the big issues of the day. From the beliefs of the Jacobite rebels, to the notions of liberty and toleration, to the attitudes to the French Wars, the book makes an unambiguous and forceful statement about the centrality of religion to any proper understanding of British public life between the Restoration and the Reform Bill

Republiek van adel, eer in de Oost-Nederlandse adelscultuur (1555-1702)
Republiek van adel gaat over adellijke mythes, obsessies met afkomst, hoofse liefde, vrouwelijke lijdzaamheid en rebellie, schakingen, jachtruzies, gekwetste eer, wraak en de dood. Het is een studie over normen, waarden en ambities van Oost-Nederlandse edelen in de tweede helft van de zestiende en de zeventiende eeuw.

De Republiek der Verenigde Nederlanden is in ons nationaal bewustzijn verankerd als een samenleving van kooplieden en regenten. Deze voorstelling berust op het Hollandse wonder van de Gouden Eeuw. Maar waar Holland zich in de zeventiende eeuw kenmerkte door de macht van burgerlijke regenten en een bloeiende stedelijke cultuur, was in de oostelijke gewesten sprake van een traditionele standensamenleving waarin de adel onmiskenbaar de toon aangaf. Macht en aanzien lagen hier in handen van families als Bentinck, Van der Capellen, Van Haersolte en Ripperda. Zij leefden in de overtuiging dat zij op grond van hun adellijke afkomst waren geroepen om te heersen over land en mensen.

Eer vormde het belangrijkste ordeningsprincipe in het bestaan van Oost-Nederlandse edelen. Door dit eerbegrip te ontrafelen en als sleutel te hanteren tot hun leef- en gedachtewereld ontstaat een nieuw, verrassend beeld van een merkwaardige, fascinerende beschaving in het oosten van de Republiek.

Conrad Gietman (1966) promoveerde op deze cultuurhistorische studie aan de Universiteit Utrecht. Hij is als wetenschappelijk medewerker verbonden aan de Hoge Raad van Adel in Den Haag en werkt daarnaast als redacteur bij het Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie.

Van een stam. Calvijn over Joden en christenen in de context van de late Middeleeuwen
Johannes Calvijn (1509-1564) heeft nauwelijks Joden ontmoet. Aan het begin van de zestiende eeuw waren de Joden uit de meeste West-Europese landen verbannen. Duitsland was een uitzondering, maar de Joden mochten niet wonen en werken waar ze wilden. De dominicanen trachtten gedaan te krijgen dat alle Joodse literatuur met uitzondering van de Tenach verboden zou worden. Luther schreef in 1543 enkele felle geschriften tegen de Joden. Hoe zag Calvijn de relatie van Joden en christenen? Hebben christenen de plaats van de Joden ingenomen of horen ze bij de Joden omdat ze betrokken worden in de relatie van God en Israel? Wat zegt Calvijn over de toekomst van de Joden?

In de Institutie stelt Calvijn de relatie van Joden en christenen niet als een apart onderwerp aan de orde. In zijn preken, colleges en commentaren worden de Joden vaak genoemd. Het gaat in de Bijbel immers over de God van Israel die ook de God van de volken zijn wil. Calvijn legt elke bijbeltekst uit in het kader van de context. Wie weten wil hoe hij over de relatie van Joden en christenen gedacht heeft, moet goed luisteren naar alles wat hij in zijn exegese over Joden en christenen gezegd heeft. In zijn bijbeluitleg heeft Calvijn zijn kennis van Joodse en christelijke exegeten verwerkt. Natuurlijk heeft hij niet het laatste woord gesproken. Maar hij heeft wel duidelijk laten zien hoe belangrijk de betekenis is van de eenheid van het Oude en het Nieuwe Testament. De relatie van Joden en christenen is daar nauw mee verbonden.

Wulfert de Greef is emeritus predikant van de Protestantse Kerk in Nederland. In 1984 promoveerde hij aan de Rijksuniversiteit in Utrecht op Calvijn en het Oude Testament. Zijn publicaties gaan vooral over de Reformatie en de uitleg van de Bijbel.

Empires of God: Religious Encounters in the Early Modern Atlantic
Religion and empire were inseparable forces in the early modern Atlantic world. Religious passions and conflicts drove much of the expansionist energy of post-Reformation Europe, providing both a rationale and a practical mode of organizing the dispersal and resettlement of hundreds of thousands of people from the Old World to the New World. Exhortations to conquer new peoples were the lingua franca of Western imperialism, and men like the mystically inclined Christopher Columbus were genuinely inspired to risk their lives and their fortunes to bring the gospel to the Americas. And in the thousands of religious refugees seeking asylum from the vicious wars of religion that tore the continent apart in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, these visionary explorers found a ready pool of migrants-English Puritans and Quakers, French Huguenots, German Moravians, Scots-Irish Presbyterians-equally willing to risk life and limb for a chance to worship God in their own way. Focusing on the formative period of European exploration, settlement, and conquest in the Americas, from roughly 1500 to 1760, Empires of God brings together historians and literary scholars of the English, French, and Spanish Americas around a common set of questions: How did religious communities and beliefs create empires, and how did imperial structures transform New World religions? How did Europeans and Native Americans make sense of each other's spiritual systems, and what acts of linguistic and cultural transition did this entail? What was the role of violence in New World religious encounters? Together, the essays collected here demonstrate the power of religious ideas and narratives to create kingdoms both imagined and real.

Grell, O. P.
Brethren in Christ. A Calvinist Network in Reformation Europe
This groundbreaking book explores the migration of Calvinist refugees in Europe during the Reformation, across a century of persecution, exile and minority existence. Ole Peter Grell follows the fortunes of some of the earliest Reformed merchant families, forced to flee from the Tuscan city of Lucca during the 1560s, through their journey to France during the Wars of Religion to the St Bartholomew Day Massacre and their search for refuge in Sedan. He traces the lives of these interconnected families over three generations as they settled in European cities from Geneva to London, marrying into the diaspora of Reformed merchants. Based on a potent combination of religion, commerce and family networks, these often wealthy merchants and highly skilled craftsmen were amongst the most successful of early modern capitalists. Brethren in Christ shows how this interconnected network, reinforced through marriage and enterprise, forged the backbone of international Calvinism in Reformation Europe.

Gritsch, E.W.
Martin Luther`s Anti-Semitism Against His Better Judgment
In this book Eric W. Gritsch, a Lutheran and a distinguished Luther scholar, faces the glaring ugliness of Martin Luther's anti- Semitism head-on, describing Luther's journey from initial attempts to proselytize Jews to an appallingly racist position, which he apparently held until his death.

Comprehensively laying out the textual evidence for Luther's virulent anti-Semitism, Gritsch traces the development of Luther's thinking in relation to his experiences, external influences, and theological convictions. Revealing greater impending danger with each step, Martin Luther's Anti-Semitism marches steadily onward until the full extent of Luther's racism becomes apparent. Gritsch's unflinching analysis also describes the impact of Luther's egregious words on subsequent generations and places Luther within Europe's long history of anti-Semitism.

Throughout, however, Gritsch resists the temptation either to demonize or to exonerate Luther. Rather, readers will recognize Luther's mistakes as links in a chain that pulled him further and further away from an attitude of respect for Jews as the biblical people of God. Gritsch depicts Luther as a famous example of the intensive struggle with the enduring question of Christian-Jewish relations. It is a great historical tragedy that Luther, of all people, fell victim to anti-Semitism -- albeit against his better judgment.

Sebastian Castellio, 1515-1563. Humanist and Defender of Religious Toleration in a Confessional Age
Sebastian Castellio, linguist, humanist and religious reformer, is one of the most remarkable figures of the Reformation. Attracted by Calvin's reforms, Castellio moved to Geneva in the 1540s, where he wrote his influential work on educational reform. Ironically, it was Castellio's work as a scholar in Geneva which was to lead to his falling out with Calvin, and ultimately his forced departure from Geneva and his resettlement in Basle. Exiled from Geneva, Castellio soon attracted a circle of like-minded reformers who opposed the intolerant attitude of Calvin, exemplified by the execution of the heretical Michael Servetus. It is Castellio's residence in Basle, where he developed his "liberal" humanist approach to religious toleration in opposition to Calvin's dogmatic othodoxy, that forms the core of this study. It explores what toleration meant and how both sides argued their case. Much attention is paid to Castellio's most important work "On Heretics", in which he argues against those who err in the faith. By telling the tale of Castellio's life, this work illuminates the furious debate which he unleashed and how it marked a crucial stage in the development of Protestant thought

Reformatie in Brabant, protestanten en katholieken in de Meierij van s-Hertogenbosch, 1523-1634
In de Meierij van 's-Hertogenbosch begon de vervolging van de aanhangers van de Reformatie rond 1526. Het aantal mensen dat het nieuwe geloof openlijk aanhing, bleef hierdoor aanvankelijk gering. Rond 1564 veranderde dit: er werden hagenpreken gehouden en steeds meer stedelingen keerden zich af van de katholieke kerk. Na de Beeldenstorm in 1566 werden in 's-Hertogenbosch en Eindhoven gereformeerde gemeenten gevormd. De leden vormden een doorsnee van de bevolking. In de decennia daarna waren er afwisselend perioden van vervolging, waarin de protestanten vluchtten naar veiliger oorden, en (betrekkelijke) rust, waarin zij terugkeerden. Gedetailleerd beschrijft Gerard van Gurp hoe de Reformatie zich in de Meijerij ontwikkelde en welke gevolgen dit had voor de stedelijke samenleving. Zijn verhaal laat zien, dat sociale en economische factoren van grote invloed waren op de keuze van de vestigingsplaats bij gedwongen verhuizing en op de vorming van gemeenten.

The Sensuous in the Counter-Reformation Church
This book examines the promotion of the sensuous as part of religious experience in the Roman Catholic Church of the early modern period. During the Counter-Reformation, every aspect of religious and devotional practice was reviewed, including the role of art and architecture, while the invocation of the five senses to incite devotion became a hotly contested topic. The Protestants had condemned the material cult of veneration of relics and images, rejecting the importance of emotion and the senses and instead promoting the power of reason in receiving the Word of God. After much debate, the Church concluded that the senses are necessary to appreciate the sublime, and that they derive from the Holy Spirit. As part of its attempt to win back the faithful, the Church embraced the sensuous and promoted the use of images, relics, liturgy, processions, music and theatre as important parts of religious experience.

Harrison, P.
The Bible, Protestantism and the Rise of Natural Science
Peter Harrison examines the role played by the Bible in the emergence of natural science. He shows how both the contents of the Bible, and more particularly the way it was interpreted, had a profound influence on conceptions of nature from the third century to the seventeenth. The rise of modern science is linked to the Protestant approach to texts, an approach which spelt an end to the symbolic world of the Middle Ages and established the conditions for the scientific investigation and technological exploitation of nature.

Hart, D. G.
Calvinism: A History
This briskly told history of Reformed Protestantism takes these churches through their entire 500-year history - from sixteenth-century Zurich and Geneva to modern locations as far flung as Seoul and Sao Paulo. D. G. Hart explores specifically the social and political developments that enabled Calvinism to establish a global presence. Hart's approach features significant episodes in the institutional history of Calvinism that are responsible for its contemporary profile. He traces the political and religious circumstances that first created space for Reformed churches in Europe and later contributed to Calvinism's expansion around the world. He discusses the effects of the American and French Revolutions on ecclesiastical establishments as well as nineteenth- and twentieth-century communions, particularly in Scotland, the Netherlands, the United States, and Germany, that directly challenged church dependence on the state. Raising important questions about secularization, religious freedom, privatization of faith, and the place of religion in public life, this book will appeal not only to readers with interests in the history of religion but also in the role of religion in political and social life today.

Martin Luther. Zijn leven, zijn werk
De bijdragen in dit boek zijn van de hand van lutherse, hervormde, gereformeerde en katholieke Lutheronderzoekers en weerspiegelen het oecumenische karakter van het Lutheronderzoek in Nederland. Biografie en theologie van Martin Luther worden in een chronologische lijn geschetst, waarbij Luther niet als de eerste moderne mens wordt gezien, maar als iemand die ten diepste geworteld was in de late middeleeuwen en van daaruit zijn eigen theologie ontwikkelde. Kernthema's en hoofdproblemen van deze theologie, die in het klooster begon en tot een eigen traditie uitgroeide, staan hierbij centraal.

De illustraties hebben een belangrijke plaats in dit boek. Een breed spectrum van afbeeldingen, afkomstig uit verschillende archieven, musea en evangelisch-lutherse gemeenten geeft een indruk van het Nederlandse erfgoed op het gebied van de Lutherana.

Met deze opzet hopen de auteurs een bundel ter beschikking te stellen voor een breed publiek van niet alleen theologen en zo opnieuw nieuwsgierig te maken naar de mens en de theoloog Martin Luther.

Hoffer, P.C.
When Benjamin Franklin met the Reverend Whitefield. Enlightenment, Revival, and the Power of the Printed Word
In the 1740s, two quite different developments revolutionized Anglo-American life and thought-the Enlightenment and the Great Awakening. This book takes an encounter between the paragons of each movement-the printer and entrepreneur Benjamin Franklin and the British-born revivalist George Whitefield-as an opportunity to explore the meaning of the beginnings of modern science and rationality on one hand and evangelical religious enthusiasm on the other. There are people who both represent the times in which they live and change them for the better. Franklin and Whitefield were two such men. The morning that they met, they formed a long and lucrative partnership: Whitefield provided copies of his journals and sermons, Franklin published them. So began one of the most unique, mutually profitable, and influential friendships in early American history. By focusing this study on Franklin and Whitefield, Peter Charles Hoffer defines with great precision the importance of the Anglo-American Atlantic World of the eighteenth century in American history. With a swift and persuasive narrative, Hoffer introduces readers to the respective life story of each man, examines in engaging detail the central themes of their early writings, and concludes with a description of the last years of their collaboration. Franklin's and Whitefield's intellectual contributions reach into our own time, making Hoffer's readable and enjoyable account of these extraordinary men and their extraordinary friendship relevant today.

Hoorens, Vera
Een ketterse arts voor de heksen, Jan Wier (1515-1588)
De Nederlandse arts Jan Wier is een van de meest uitzonderlijke figuren van de zestiende eeuw. Als tegenstander van de heksenvervolging en pleitbezorger van de rechten van gevangenen geldt hij als voorloper van de psychiatrie en als verdediger avant la lettre van de mensenrechten. Daarnaast publiceerde hij op grond van zijn ervaring in de hoogste kringen over zeldzame ziektes, bezeten vrouwenkloosters, seksueel misbruik, Faust en de rattenvanger van Hamelen. Over zijn persoonlijke leven was tot nu toe echter weinig bekend. In Een ketterse arts voor de heksen schetst Vera Hoorens het kleurrijke leven van deze zestiende-eeuwse geleerde tegen de achtergrond van godsdiensttwisten, oorlogen, nieuwe ziektes, wetenschappelijke conflicten en heksenprocessen.

Hopfl, H.
Jesuit Politcal Thought. The Society of Jesus and the State, c. 1540-1630
Harro Hopfl presents here a full-length study of the single most influential organized group of scholars and pamphleteers in early modern Europe (1540-1630), namely the Jesuits. He explores the academic and political controversies in which they were engaged in and their contribution to academic discourse around ideas of 'the state' and 'politics'. He pays particular attention to their actual teaching concerning doctrines for whose menacing practical implications Jesuits generally were vilified: notably tyrannicide, the papal power to depose rulers, the legitimacy of 'Machiavellian' policies in dealing with heretics and the justifiability of breaking faith with heretics. Hopfl further explores the paradox of the Jesuits' political activities being at once the subject of conspiratorial fantasies but at the same time being widely acknowledged as among the foremost intellects of their time, with their thought freely cited and appropriated. This is an important work of scholarship.

Kagan, R.L. & A. Dyer (eds & transl.)
Inquisitorial Inquiries. Brief Lives of Secret Jews & other Heretics
On the first day of Francisco de San Antonio's trial before the Spanish Inquisition in Toledo in 1625, his interrogators asked him about his parentage. His real name, he stated, was Abram Ruben, and he had been born in Fez of Jewish parents. How then, Inquisitors wanted to know, had he become a Christian convert? Why had a Hebrew alphabet been found in his possession? And what was his business at the Court in Madrid? "He was asked," according to his dossier, "for the story of his life." His response, more than ten folios long, is one of the many involuntary autobiographies created by the logic of the Inquisition that today provide rich insights into both the personal lives of the persecuted and the social, cultural, and political realities of the age. In the first edition of Inquisitorial Inquiries, Richard L. Kagan and Abigail Dyer collected, translated, and annotated six of these autobiographies from a diverse group of prisoners. Now they add the fascinating life story of another victim of the Inquisition: Esteban Jamete, a French sculptor accused of being a Protestant. Each of the autobiographies has been selected to represent a particular political or social issue, while at the same time raising more intimate questions about the religious, sexual, political, or national identities of the prisoners. Among them are a politically incendiary prophet, a self-proclaimed hermaphrodite, and a morisco, an Islamic convert to Catholicism.

Kamp, Jan van de
Op verzoek van vromen vertaald, duitse vertalingen van gereformeerde stichtelijke lectuur
Eind zestiende eeuw verschoof de aandacht van veel Europese christelijke predikanten en christenen van de leer naar het leven. De nieuwe vroomheidsbewegingen die ontstonden, onderhielden intensieve contacten. Vertalingen speelden een belangrijke rol als intermediair.

Onderzoek hiernaar werpt meer licht op de wisselwerking tussen vroomheidsbewegingen als het Engelse puritanisme, de Nederlandse Nadere Reformatie en het Duitse pietisme. Vooral Engelse puriteinse geschriften werden veelvuldig vertaald, onder andere in het Duits. Jan van de Kamp bestudeerde deze vertalingen zorgvuldig. In deze populair-wetenschappelijke uitgave van zijn proefschrift behandelt hij het leven en de vertaalactiviteiten van een groep vertalers, evenals de verspreiding en de ontvangst van hun werk. Hierbij blijkt de rol van netwerken zeer groot te zijn. Ook onderzoekt hij de invloed van de Engelse en Nederlandse gereformeerde vroomheidsbewegingen op het Duitse lutherse pietisme en in hoeverre deze bewegingen een eenheid vormden.

Een licht dat schijnt in duistere plaatsen
Adriaan Koerbagh ontleedt in Een licht dat schijnt in duistere plaatsen met 'het licht van de rede' fundamentele christelijke noties als de Schepper, de Drie-eenheid, hemel en hel, engelen en duivels, geloof in wonderen. Volgens hem vallen God en Natuur samen en is theologie een natuurwetenschap. Koerbaghs doel was een vrije en vrijzinnige samenleving; hij had zich tot taak gesteld met scherpe pen commentaar te leveren op wat hij als misstanden ervoer. Zonder twijfel zou Een licht dat schijnt in duistere plaatsen een grote inspiratiebron zijn geweest voor de radicale Verlichtingsdenkers als het in 1668 ongehinderd had kunnen verschijnen. Nu werd echter vrijwel de hele oplage vernietigd en wachtte Koerbagh een ander lot: om zijn antichristelijke boek werd hij bestraft met een ketterproces in het 'vrijzinnige' Amsterdam en in 1669 overleed hij in het Rasphuis. Een licht verzonk ten onrechte in de vergetelheid.

Wielema is een van de samenstellers van de Dictionary of Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Dutch Philosophers en verzorgde eerder een vertaling van Een licht in het Engels.

Calvinists and Catholics During Holland's Golden Age: Heretics and Idolaters
This book examines the social, political and religious relationships between Calvinists and Catholics during Holland's Golden Age. Although Holland, the largest province of the Dutch Republic, was officially Calvinist, its population was one of the most religiously heterogeneous in early modern Europe. The Catholic Church was officially disestablished in the 1570s, yet by the 1620s Catholicism underwent a revival, flourishing in a semi-clandestine private sphere. The book focuses on how Reformed Protestants dealt with this revived Catholicism, arguing that confessional coexistence between Calvinists and Catholics operated within a number of contiguous and overlapping social, political and cultural spaces. The result was a paradox: a society that was at once Calvinist and pluralist. Christine Kooi maps the daily interactions between people of different faiths and examines how religious boundaries were negotiated during an era of tumultuous religious change.

Krodel, G.G.
Durers Luther-Bucher. Ein Beitrag zur Luther-Biographie
Das vorliegende Werk von Gottfried G. Krodel verrat seine Vertrautheit mit Luthers Werk sowie mit der Durerforschung gleichermassen. Aus der reichen Hinterlassenschaft des Malers wird seine Liste von Schriften Luthers aus der Fruhzeit der Reformation ausgewertet. Daruber hinaus existieren einige weitere Ausserungen Durers uber Publikationen Luthers. Diese werden vom Verfasser identifiziert und eingeordnet. Ein grosser Exkurs zu Durers Klage uber Luthers Verschwinden nach dem Reichstag von Worms ist der Kenntnis von Wyclif und Hus sowie der Vorstellung vom Antichrist in Nurnberg gewidmet. Dabei wird auch auf Durers eigene fruhere Anschauungen sowie auf die Nurnberger Chronistik eingegangen. Es ergeben sich neue Einblicke in die religiose Gedankenwelt in Nurnberg vor der Reformation.

Kuijer, Guus
Draaikonten en haatblaffers. Over de moeizame geboorte van de tolerantiegedachte
De tolerante samenleving is ontstaan tijdens onze nationale afhankelijkheidsstrijd. Mannen als Benito Arias Montano, begonnen als partijganger van de hertog van Alva, kregen vanaf de jaren zestig van de zestiende eeuw een open oor voor andersdenkenden. Zij zochten niet de confrontatie met intolerante calvinisten of katholieken, maar kozen als hun wapen de schijnbare meegaandheid, het plooien en gladstrijken. Dat was hun bijdrage aan de verdraagzame samenleving. Zij werden niet zo beroemd als Filips II of Calvijn, maar drukten wel een blijvend stempel op de Lage Landen.

Anno 2011 staat de verdraagzaamheid opnieuw zwaar onder druk. Guus Kuijer schrijft Montanos levensverhaal tijdens diens verblijf in de kring van de Antwerpse drukker Christoffel Plantijn. Hij waarschuwt met een groot gevoel van urgentie voor het verloren gaan van de destijds ontstane normen en waarden, en zegt daarover: 'U begrijpt natuurlijk waarom ik dit boek schrijf. Ik maak me zorgen over de tolerante samenleving die in dit schitterende land ten koste van zo veel bloed en tranen is ontwikkeld'.

Langereis, Sandra
De woordenaar. Christoffel Plantijn, 's werelds grootste drukker en uitgever 1520-1589
Halverwege de zestiende eeuw was Christoffel Plantijn al een beroemdheid; zelfs koning Filips II was onder de indruk van zijn drukkerij. Terwijl andere drukkers met een of hooguit enkele persen werkten, beschikte Plantijn over maar liefst 22 drukpersen. Hij publiceerde alle belangrijke auteurs op het gebied van literatuur en wetenschap, en werkte in opdracht van de stad Antwerpen, de Staten-Generaal, de koning en de Leidse universiteit.

Vanuit Antwerpen probeerde Plantijn de samenleving, die was verdeeld door godsdiensttwisten, oorlog en opstand, te binden met boeken. Hij geloofde dat vrede en voorspoed binnen handbereik zouden komen als men elkaar zou vinden in een gemeenschappelijke taal. Daarom gaf hij het allereerste Nederlandse woordenboek uit en begon hij een onmenselijk groot project: een vijftalige studiebijbel die beroemd is geworden als Plantijns Polyglot. Hoewel dit project zijn drukkerij aan de rand van de afgrond bracht en zijn relatie met mecenas Filips II op scherp zette, vestigde Plantijn met de prestigieuze uitgave zijn naam als grootste uitgever ter wereld.

Op indringende wijze vestigt Sandra Langereis met De woordenaar de aandacht op een opmerkelijk leven in de zestiende eeuw, en op de geschiedenis van de Nederlanden in Antwerpen.

Levack , Brian
The Devil within: Possession and Exorcism in the Christian West
In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the era of the Reformation, thousands of Europeans were thought to be possessed by demons. In response to their horrifying symptoms - violent convulsions, displays of preternatural strength, vomiting of foreign objects, displaying contempt for sacred objects, and others - exorcists were summoned to expel the evil spirits from victims' bodies. This compelling book focuses on possession and exorcism in the Reformation period, but also reaches back to the fifteenth century and forward to our own times. Entire convents of nuns in French and Spanish towns, 30 boys in an Amsterdam orphange, a small group of young girls in Salem, Massachusetts - these are among the instances of demon possession in the United States and throughout Europe that Brian Lavack closely examines, taking into account the diverse interpretations of generations of theologians, biblical scholars, pastors, physicians, anthropologists, psychiatrists, and historians. Challenging the commonly held belief that possession signals physical or mental illness, the author argues that demoniacs and exorcists - consciously or not - are following scripts encoded in their various religious cultures, and their performances can only be understood in those contexts.

Treatise on Good Works. Luther Study Edition
Luther's transformational idea of justification by faith alone was often misunderstood and misrepresented in the early years of the Reformation. In 1520, with his Wittenberg congregation in mind, Luther set out to clarify the biblical foundation of good works. In doing so he recast the very definitions of "sacred" and "secular" both for his own generation and ours.

Treatise on Good Works is the second of an occasional series of guides to key Reformation treatises by Martin Luther. Aimed at increasing understanding and interest among contemporary readers, these slim, affordable volumes feature new translations and a range of helpful features.

Gesprekken aan tafel
Gesprekken aan tafel is een bonte verzameling ernstige beschouwingen, persoonlijke ontboezemingen, pittige aforismen, maatschappijkritische en soms ook uitgesproken grappige uitspraken van Maarten Luther (1483-1546). Ze zijn genoteerd door de vele tijdelijke inwonende kostgangers die allemaal aan de eettafel van de gastvrije familie Luther meeaten (vlees, brood) en meedronken (bier). Het lezen van Luther is een uitdaging. Zijn ideeen maken op het eerste gezicht een dogmatische, strenge en soms ook ongenuanceerde indruk. Wie verder leest zal snel merken dat het Luther in zijn theologie altijd te doen is om het subtiele en onzekere samenspel tussen God en mens dat wordt uitgedrukt in het woord 'geloof'.

De centrale thema's in deze selectie van tafelgesprekken zijn de aanvechting, de verborgenheid van God en de relatie tussen kerk en staat. Ook zijn er teksten over de persoon en het leven van Luther opgenomen, naast diens theologische compacte en doorwrochte betogen en spontane, vaak hoekige en barse uitspraken.

Luthers denken, dat handelt om de problematiek van de relatie van het subject tot zichzelf, de wereld en God, blijkt verrassend modern.

David Gorlaeus (1591-1612) an enigmatic figure in the history of philosophy and science
Toen David Gorlaeus (1591-1612) op 21 jarige leeftijd overleed, liet hij twee baanbrekende manuscripten achter, die zich op het kruispunt van de filosofie, de ontluikende natuurwetenschappen en theologie begaven. Nadat ze eenmaal werden gepubliceerd had zijn werk een opmerkelijke invloed op de evolutie van het zeventiende-eeuwse denken.

Doordat Gorlaeus' identiteit onbekend was, ontstonden al snel zeer uiteenlopende interpretaties van de publicaties. Ondanks dat Gorlaeus 'slechts' een beginnend theologiestudent was, dachten lezers uit de zeventiende eeuw het met een anti-aristotelische denker en een voorloper van Descartes van doen te hebben. Twintigste-eeuwse historici schilderden hem af als een atomist, natuurwetenschapper en zelfs als chemicus.

Dit boek beoogt inzicht te geven in de familieomstandigheden van Gorlaeus, zijn opleiding aan de universiteit van Franeker en Leiden. Ook wordt ingegaan op de opkomst van het protestantisme, wat context vormde voor de tijd waarin hij zijn werk schreef. Ten slotte probeert de auteur te bepalen welke plaats de werken innemen in de geschiedenis van de Nederlandse filosofie en te bepalen wat de invloed was op de ontwikkelingen in de filosofie en wetenschap.

Pieties in Transition. Religious Practices and Experiences, c. 1400-1640
This significant and innovative collection explores the changing piety of townspeople and villagers before, during, and after the Reformation. It brings together leading and new scholars from England and the Netherlands to present new research on a subject of importance to historians of society and religion in late medieval and early modern Europe. Contributors examine the diverse evidence for transitions in piety and the processes of these changes. The volume incorporates a range of approaches including social, cultural and religious history, literary and manuscript studies, social anthropology and archaeology. This is, therefore, an interdisciplinary volume that constitutes a cultural history of changing pieties in the period c. 1400-1640. Contributors focus on a number of specific themes using a range of types of evidence and theoretical approach. Some chapters make detailed reconstructions of specific communities, groups and individuals; some offer perceptive and useful analyses of theoretical and comparative approaches to transition and to piety; and others closely examine cultural practices, ideas and tastes. Through this range of detailed work, which brings to light previously unknown sources as well as new approaches to more familiar sources, contributors address a number of questions arising from recent published work on late medieval and early modern piety and reformation. Individually and collectively, the chapters in this volume offer an important contribution to the field of late medieval and early modern piety. They highlight, for the first time, the centrality of processes of transition in the experience and practice of religion. Offering a refreshingly new approach to the subject, this volume raises timely theoretical and methodological questions that will be of interest to a broad audience

Machiavelli, N. & J.F. Otten (vert.)
De Vorst. Machiavelli, sleutel van onze tijd
'Macht is de spil waar alles om draait. Hij die macht heeft, heeft gelijk; de zwakkere heeft altijd ongelijk.'

Deze zevende druk van dr. J.F. Ottens postuum verschenen Machiavelli, sleutel van onze tijd (1940), gevolgd door diens Nederlandse vertaling van Machiavelli's wereldberoemde en niet onomstreden politieke geschrift Il Principe, is voor het eerst conform wat dr. J.F. Otten (1901-1940) ooit voor ogen stond.

Als gevolg van de oorlogsomstandigheden destijds werd namelijk het inleidende hoofdstuk van Machiavelli, sleutel van onze tijd uit de eerste druk geschrapt. Ook in latere drukken, tot en met 1983, keerde het niet meer terug. In de naoorlogse edities van dit succesvolle boek werden er opnieuw coupures in de tekst aangebracht. Deze weglatingen zijn nu, samen met het nimmer eerder gepubliceerde inleidende hoofdstuk, in deze nieuwste uitgave alsnog opgenomen. Spelling, taalgebruik en interpunctie zijn niettemin geactualiseerd. In het nagelaten werk van J.F. Otten bevinden zich enkele hoofdstukken die moesten leiden tot een nieuw boek over Machiavelli. Ze zijn aan deze heruitgave toegevoegd, samen met zijn artikel Machiavelli en Multatuli (1939). 'Een woord van herdenking' door Constant van Wessem (1891-1954), dat uit de naoorlogse edities werd weggelaten, is weer in ere hersteld. Ook alle bijlagen zijn wat betreft spelling, taalgebruik en interpunctie aan de eisen van nu aangepast.

Manetsch , Scott M.
Calvins Company of Pastors: Pastoral Care and the Emerging Reformed Church, 1536-1609
In Calvin's Company of Pastors, Scott Manetsch examines the pastoral theology and practical ministry activities of Geneva's reformed ministers from the time of Calvin's arrival in Geneva until the beginning of the seventeenth century. During these seven decades, more than 130 men were enrolled in Geneva's Venerable Company of Pastors, including notable reformed leaders such as Pierre Viret, Theodore Beza, Simon Goulart, Lambert Daneau, and Jean Diodati. Aside from these better-known epigones, Geneva's pastors from this period remain hidden from view, cloaked in Calvin's long shadow, even though they played a strategic role in preserving and reshaping Calvin's pastoral legacy. These "forgotten" reformed pastors, together with Calvin himself, are the central characters of this book. Making extensive use of archival materials, published sermons, catechisms, prayer books, personal correspondence, and theological writings, Manetsch offers an engaging and vivid portrait of pastoral life in sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Geneva, exploring the manner in which Geneva's ministers conceived of their pastoral office and performed their daily responsibilities of preaching, public worship, moral discipline, catechesis, administering the sacraments, and pastoral care.

John Calvin`s Ecclesiology. Ecumenical Perspectives
Many events were staged and a plethora of new books appeared to mark the quincentenary of the birth of John Calvin, in 2009. But one area received considerably less attention in that anniversary year - namely, Calvin's ecclesiology. This study explores the development and fundamental legacy of Calvin's perspectives on and relationship with the church. Contributions are included which explore the later development and denominational variations' of Calvin's ecclesiology, along with ecumenical discussions/responses to and implications of Calvin's understanding of the church. There are further chapters which focus on particular aspects such as Calvin's ecclesiological method, understanding of ministry, the sacramental' principle, the invisible church' etc. Contributions on the use of Calvin's ecclesiology by later and modern/contemporary ecclesiologists also feature. This is a volume that brings together leading and emerging theological voices from Europe, North America and Latino America and from across the different theological sub-disciplines. Significantly, it also a book from genuinely ecumenical perspectives, with writers from several different denominational traditions contributing.

Mayer, Thomas F.
The Roman Inquisition: A Papal Bureaucracy and Its Laws in the Age of Galileo
While the Spanish Inquisition has laid the greatest claim to both scholarly attention and the popular imagination, the Roman Inquisition, established in 1542 and a key instrument of papal authority, was more powerful, important, and long-lived. Founded by Paul III and originally aimed to eradicate Protestant heresy, it followed medieval antecedents but went beyond them by becoming a highly articulated centralized organ directly dependent on the pope. By the late sixteenth century the Roman Inquisition had developed its own distinctive procedures, legal process, and personnel, the congregation of cardinals and a professional staff. Its legal process grew out of the technique of inquisitio formulated by Innocent III in the early thirteenth century, it became the most precocious papal bureaucracy on the road to the first "absolutist" state. As Thomas F. Mayer demonstrates, the Inquisition underwent constant modification as it expanded. The new institution modeled its case management and other procedures on those of another medieval ancestor, the Roman supreme court, the Rota. With unparalleled attention to archival sources and detail, Mayer portrays a highly articulated corporate bureaucracy with the pope at its head. He profiles the Cardinal Inquisitors, including those who would play a major role in Galileo's trials, and details their social and geographical origins, their education, economic status, earlier careers in the Church, and networks of patronage. At the point this study ends, circa 1640, Pope Urban VIII had made the Roman Inquisition his personal instrument and dominated it to a degree none of his predecessors had approached.

McCullough, P., Hugh Adington and Emma Rhatigan
The Oxford Handbook of the Early Modern Sermon
Scholarly interest in the early modern sermon has flourished in recent years, driven by belated recognition of the crucial importance of preaching to religious, cultural, and political life in early modern Britain. The Oxford Handbook of the Early Modern Sermon is the first book to survey this rich new field for both students and specialists. It is divided into sections devoted to sermon composition, delivery, and reception; sermons in Scotland, Ireland, and Wales; English Sermons, 1500-1660; and English Sermons, 1660-1720. The twenty-five original essays it contains represent emerging areas of interest, including research on sermons in performance, pulpit censorship, preaching and ecclesiology, women and sermons, the social, economic, and literary history of sermons in manuscript and print, and non-elite preaching. The Handbook also responds to the recently recognised need to extend thinking about the 'early modern' across the watershed of the civil wars and interregnum, on both sides of which sermons and preaching remained a potent instrument of religious politics and a literary form of central importance to British culture. Complete with appendices of original documents of sermon theory, reception, and regulation, and generously illustrated, this is a comprehensive guide to the rhetorical, ecclesiastical, and historical precepts essential to the study of the early modern sermon in Britain.

McIntosh, C.
The Rose Cross and the Age of Reason. Eighteenth-Century Rosicrucianism in Central Europe and its Relationship to the Enlightenment
This new edition of Christopher McIntosh's classic book on the Golden and Rosy Cross order is eagerly awaited. The order stands out as one of the most fascinating and influential of the high-degree Masonic and Illuminist groups that mushroomed in Europe from the eighteenth century onward. Active mainly in the German-speaking lands, it recast the original Rosicrucian vision and gave it renewed vitality. At one point it became politically influential when the Prussian King, Frederick William II, was a member of the order. Historians have often perceived the Golden and Rosy Cross as having had a conservative, anti-Enlightenment agenda, but this study - drawing on rare German sources - shows that the matter was more complex. The members of the order practiced alchemy and operated a degree system that was imitated by later orders, such as the Golden Dawn. Like the latter, the Golden and Rosy Cross exerted a wide and enduring cultural influence. Both the alchemy of the order and its powerful ritual system are insightfully described in Christopher McIntosh's clear and compelling style.

Michelson, Emily
The Pulpit and the Press in Reformation Italy
Italian preachers during the Reformation era found themselves in the trenches of a more desperate war than anything they had ever imagined. This war--the splintering of western Christendom into conflicting sects--was physically but also spiritually violent. In an era of tremendous religious convolution, fluidity, and danger, preachers of all kinds spoke from the pulpit daily, weekly, or seasonally to confront the hottest controversies of their time. Preachers also turned to the printing press in unprecedented numbers to spread their messages. Emily Michelson challenges the stereotype that Protestants succeeded in converting Catholics through superior preaching and printing. Catholic preachers were not simply reactionary and uncreative mouthpieces of a monolithic church. Rather, they deftly and imaginatively grappled with the question of how to preserve the orthodoxy of their flock and maintain the authority of the Roman church while also confronting new, undeniable lay demands for inclusion and participation. These sermons--almost unknown in English until now--tell a new story of the Reformation that credits preachers with keeping Italy Catholic when the region's religious future seemed uncertain, and with fashioning the post-Reformation Catholicism that thrived into the modern era. By deploying the pulpit, pen, and printing press, preachers in Italy created a new religious culture that would survive in an unprecedented atmosphere of competition and religious choice.

Mochizuki, M.M.
The Netherlandish Image after Iconoclasm 1566-1672. Material Religion in the Dutch Golden Age
Debunking the myth of the stark white Protestant church interior, this study explores the very objects and architectural additions that were in fact added to Netherlandish church interiors in the first century after iconoclasm. In charting these additions, Mia Mochizuki helps explain the impact of iconoclasm on the cultural topography of the Dutch Golden Age, and by extension, permits careful scrutiny of a decisive moment in the history of the image.Focusing on the Great or St. Bavo Church in Haarlem, this interdisciplinary book draws on art history, history and theology to look at the impact of iconoclasm and reformation on the process of image-making in the early modern Netherlands. The new objects that began to appear in the early Dutch Reformed Church signaled a dramatic change in the form, function and patronage of church art and testified to new roles for church, government, guild and resident.Each chapter in the book introduces a major theme of the nascent Protestant church interior-the Word made material, the Word made memorial and the Word made manifest-which is then explored through the painting, sculpture and architecture of the early Dutch Reformed Church. The text is heavily illustrated with images of the objects under discussion, many of them never before published. A large number of these images are from the camera of prize-winning photographer Tjeerd Frederikse, with additional photography courtesy of E. A. van Voorden.

Monson, C.A.
Divas in the Convent. Nuns, Music, and Defiance in Seventeenth-century Italy
When eight-year-old Lucrezia Orsina Vizzana (1590-1662) entered one of the preeminent convents in Bologna in 1598, she had no idea what cloistered life had in store for her. Thanks to clandestine instruction from a local maestro di cappella - and despite the church hierarchy's vehement opposition to all convent music - Vizzana became the star of the convent, composing works so thoroughly modern and expressive that a recent critic described them as "historical treasures." But at the very moment when Vizzana's works appeared in 1623 - she would be the only Bolognese nun ever to publish her music - extraordinary troubles beset her and her fellow nuns, as episcopal authorities arrived to investigate anonymous allegations of sisterly improprieties with male members of their order.

Craig A. Monson retells the story of Vizzana and the nuns of Santa Cristina to elucidate the role that music played in the lives of these cloistered women. Monson explains how the sisters - refusing to accept what the church hierarchy called God's will and what the nuns perceived as a besmirching of their honor - fought back with words and music, and when these proved futile, with bricks, roof tiles, and stones.

These women defied one Bolognese archbishop after another, cardinals in Rome, and even the pope himself, until threats of excommunication and abandonment by their families brought them to their knees twenty-five years later. By then, Santa Cristina's imaginative but frail composer literally had been driven mad by the conflict. Monson's fascinating narrative relies heavily on the words of its various protagonists, on both sides of the cloister wall, who emerge vividly as imaginative, independent-minded, and not always sympathetic figures. In restoring the musically gifted Lucrezia Orsina Vizzana to history, Monson introduces readers to the full range of captivating characters who played their parts in seventeenth-century convent life.

Monson, C.A.
Nuns Behaving Badly. Tales of Music, Magic, Art & Arson in the Convents of Italy
Witchcraft. Arson. Going AWOL. Some nuns in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italy strayed far from the paradigms of monastic life. Cloistered in convents, subjected to stifling hierarchy, repressed, and occasionally persecuted by their male superiors, these women circumvented authority in sometimes extraordinary ways. But tales of their transgressions have long been buried in the Vatican Secret Archive. That is, until now. In "Nuns Behaving Badly", Craig A. Monson resurrects forgotten tales and restores to life the long-silent voices of these cloistered heroines. Here we meet nuns who dared to speak out about physical assault and sexual impropriety (some real, some imagined). Others were guilty only of misjudgment or of defacing valuable artwork that offended their sensibilities. But what unites the women and their stories is the challenge they faced: these were women trying to find their way within the Catholicism of their day and through the strict limits it imposed on them. In resurrecting these long-forgotten tales and trials, Monson also draws attention to the predicament of modern religious women, whose "misbehavior" - seeking ordination as priests or refusing to give up their endowments to pay for priestly wrongdoing in their own archdioceses - continues even today. The nuns of early modern Italy, Monson shows, set the standard for religious transgression in their own age - and beyond.

More, Thomas
Utopia
De humanistische heilstaat Utopia leek volgens Thomas More in het geheel niet op de toestand in het Westen zoals die was in 1516, toen dit beroemde boek verscheen. Armoede, sociale onrust, corrupte rechtspraak en falende politiek zijn op het eiland Utopia niet aan de orde. De kloof tussen arm en rijk bestaat niet, iedereen werkt en beschikt over alles wat hij nodig heeft. Geld speelt geen rol en evenmin is er sprake van de eeuwige misdragingen die met geld gepaard gaan. Desalniettemin is het boek Utopia een product van zijn tijd: nieuwe ontdekkingen en inzichten en met name het ontluikende humanisme maakten dat de hoop groeide op een betere, geordende samenleving. Thomas More had als jurist en staatsman de positie om hier een bijdrage aan te leveren, ware het niet dat hij in een conflict kwam met koning Hendrik VIII en werd geexecuteerd in 1535. Vierhonderd jaar later werd hij heilig verklaard.

Een gemeenschap van werkenden waarin de kloof tussen arm en rijk niet bestaat, waar iedereen beschikt over wat hij nodig heeft, waar geld geen rol speelt en economische misdrijven niet voorkomen: ziedaar Utopia volgens Thomas More. Het lijkt in niets op de toestand in het Westen van het begin van de zestiende eeuw, waar armoede heerste, de rechtspleging corrupt was, het grootgrondbezit tot schrijnende onrechtvaardigheden leidde en de politiek aan alle kanten faalde.

Mullett, M.A.
John Calvin
John Calvin (1509-1564) is one of the most important figures in religious history. Sitting on the cusp of the medieval and early modern world, he was centre stage during the Reformation. In this new biography, Michael Mullett introduces us to this most important figure, tying his life together with that of Martin Luther, but also valuing his individual contribution and influence. From what Calvin himself described as 'humble beginnings', he became one of the most influential theologians of the Protestant Reformation. The influence of his teachings and the development of Christian theology into what was to become known as Calvinism, swept across Europe, reinforcing the Reformation's radical break from the Catholic Church. John Calvin was 'a mighty and formidable man, able to achieve the vast amount he did because of his unbending conviction of his rightness'. Michael Mullett explores the significant influences on Calvin and his work, and the relationships that he formed along his reforming path. Looking not only at the impact of Calvin throughout the early modern period and the importance of his work to contemporaries, Michael Mullett also assesses the impact that Calvin's works have had in shaping the modern world, and the relevance that they still have today.

The Serpent and the Lamb: Cranach, Luther, and the Making of the Reformation
This compelling book retells and revises the story of the German Renaissance and Reformation through the lives of two controversial men of the sixteenth century: the Saxon court painter Lucas Cranach (the Serpent) and the Wittenberg monk-turned-reformer Martin Luther (the Lamb). Contemporaries and friends (each was godfather to the other's children), Cranach and Luther were very different Germans, yet their collaborative successes merged art and religion into a revolutionary force that became the Protestant Reformation. Steven Ozment, an internationally recognized historian of the Reformation era, reprises the lives and works of Cranach (1472 - 1553) and Luther (1483 - 1546) in this generously illustrated book. He contends that Cranach's new art and Luther's oratory released a barrage of criticism upon the Vatican, the force of which secured a new freedom of faith and pluralism of religion in the Western world. Between Luther's pulpit praise of the sex drive within the divine estate of marriage and Cranach's parade of strong, lithe women, a new romantic, familial consciousness was born. The "Cranach woman" and the "Lutheran household" - both products of the merged Renaissance and Reformation worlds - evoked a new organization of society and foretold a new direction for Germany.

The Rationalization of Miracles: A New Institutional Environment
During the Counter-Reformation in southern Europe, Catholic Church officials developed rules to legitimize miracles performed by candidates to sainthood. The Rationalization of Miracles uncovers a tacit understanding between central religious officials and local religious activists. Each group had a vested interest in declaring miracles: Catholic Church leaders sought legitimacy in the wake of the crisis of faith created by the Protestant Schism and religious acolytes needed Church approval to secure a flow of resources to their movements. The Church's new procedure of deeming miracles 'true' when there were witnesses of different statuses and the acts occurred in the presence of a candidate's acolyte served the needs of both parties. And by developing rules and procedures for evaluating miracles, the Church rationalized the magic at the root of the miracles, thereby propelling the institution out of a period of institutional, political and social uncertainty and forming the basis of modern sainthood.

Parry, G.
The Arch-Conjuror of England. John Dee
Outlandish alchemist and magician, political intelligencer, apocalyptic prophet, and converser with angels, John Dee (1527-1609) was one of the most colourful and controversial figures of the Tudor world. In this fascinating book - the first full-length biography of Dee based on primary historical sources - Glyn Parry explores Dee's vast array of political, magical, and scientific writings and finds that they cast significant new light on policy struggles in the Elizabethan court, conservative attacks on magic, and Europe's religious wars. John Dee was more than just a fringe magus, Parry shows: he was a major figure of the Reformation and Renaissance.

Perry, M.E.
The Handless Maiden. Moriscos and the Politics of Religion in Early Modern Spain
In 1502, a decade of increasing tension between Muslims and Christians in Spain culminated in a royal decree that Muslims in Castile wanting to remain had to convert to Christianity. Mary Elizabeth Perry uses this event as the starting point for a remarkable exploration of how Moriscos, converted Muslims and their descendants, responded to their increasing disempowerment in sixteenth- and early-seventeenth-century Spain.

Stepping beyond traditional histories that have emphasized armed conflict from the view of victors, The Handless Maiden focuses on Morisco women. Perry argues that these women's lives offer vital new insights on the experiences of Moriscos in general, and on how the politics of religion both empowers and oppresses. Drawing on archival documents, legends, and literature, Perry shows that the Moriscas carried out active resistance to cultural oppression through everyday rituals and acts. For example, they taught their children Arabic language and Islamic prayers, dietary practices, and the observation of Islamic holy days. Thus the home, not the battlefield, became the major forum for Morisco-Christian interaction.

Moriscas' experiences further reveal how the Morisco presence provided a vital counter-identity for a centralizing state in early modern Spain. For readers of the twenty-first century, The Handless Maiden raises urgent questions of how we choose to use difference and historical memory.

Gender, Kabbalah, and the Reformation. The Mystical Theology of Guillaume Postel (1510-1581)
This study examines one of the most unusual figures of the sixteenth century, Guillaume Postel, who believed that a female messiah had arrived on earth who would usher in a new age of political and religious harmony. He grounded this prophecy in the Kabbalah, the Jewish mystical tradition, and relied extensively on its use of gender symbolism. Postel has often been viewed as a marginal figure, whose unconventional views preclude comparison with his contemporaries. However, this study suggests that Postel used his prophecy to participate in two arenas: Reformation controversy and the "querelle des femmes" or debate about women. His thought has relevance not only for an understanding of Renaissance Kabbalah, but for Reformation history and for early modern gender studies.

Johannes Reuchlin and the Campaign to Destroy Jewish Books
This study reconstructs the history of a significant crisis in Christian-Jewish relations: the attempt to confiscate and destroy all Jewish books in Renaissance Germany. This unprecedented effort to end the practice of Judaism throughout the empire was challenged by Jewish communities and also, in an unexpected move, by Johannes Reuchlin (1455-1522), the founder of Christian Hebrew studies. Reuchlin had revolutionized the Christian study of the Bible with his Hebrew grammar. In 1510 he published an extensive, impassioned, and successful defense of Jewish writings and Jewish legal rights against the book pogrom, later acknowledged by Josel of Rosheim, the leader of German Jewry, as a "miracle within a miracle." The fury that greeted Reuchlin's defense of Judaism resulted in a protracted heresy trial that polarized Europe, ultimately fostering a receptive environment for the nascent Reformation movement. The legal and theological battle over charges that Reuchlin's opinions were "impermissibly favorable to Jews," a conflict that elicited intervention on both sides from the most powerful political and intellectual leaders throughout Renaissance Europe, formed a new context for Christian reflection on the status of Judaism. David Price offers insight into important new Christian discourses on Judaism and anti-Semitism that emerged from the clash of Renaissance humanism with this potent anti-Jewish campaign, as well as an innovative analysis of Luther's virulent anti-Semitism in the context and aftermath of the Reuchlin Affair

Het calvinistisch ongemak
Het Nederlandse protestantisme heeft al vroeg in Johannes Calvijn een van haar belangrijkste inspiratoren gevonden. Toch was zijn inbreng nooit onomstreden, en ook nu roept de naam van deze erflater bij veel protestanten naast waardering ook ongemak op.

In deze bundel raakt een twintigtal medewerkers van binnen en buiten de Protestantse Theologische Universiteit aan een reeks van wrijfpunten. Deze betreffen de aard van het geloof- ervaart het (post)moderne zelf het niet als veel te agressief om te stellen "dat wij niet van onszelf zijn"?, de geschiedenis van de interpretatie - wie mocht zich ten tijde van het Verzet of de Apartheid met recht op Calvijn beroepen?, en allerlei actuele kwesties in kerk (wekelijkse avondmaalsviering?) en maatschappij ("economie van het genoeg"?).

Ramus, Pedagogy and the Liberal Arts. Ramism in Britain and the Wider World
Most early modern scholars know that Petrus Ramus (1515-1572) is important, but may be rather vague as to where his importance lies. This new collection of essays analyses the impact of the logician, rhetorician and pedagogical innovator across a variety of countries and intellectual disciplines, reappraising Ramus in the light of scholarly developments in the fifty years since the publication of Walter Ong's seminal work Ramus, Method, and the Decay of Dialogue. Chapters reflect the broad impact of Ramus and the Ramist 'method' of teaching across many subjects, including logic and rhetoric, pedagogy, mathematics, philosophy, and new scientific and taxonomic developments in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

There is no current work that offers such a broad survey of Ramus and Ramism, or that looks at him in such an interdisciplinary fashion. Ramus' influence extended across many disciplines and this book skillfully weaves together studies in intellectual history, pedagogy, literature, philosophy and the history of science. It will prove a useful starting point for those interested in Ramus and his impact, as well as serving to redefine the field of Ramist studies for future scholars.

The Chancery of God. Protestant Print, Polemic and Propaganda against the Empire, Magdeburg 1546-1551
The disastrous protestant defeat in the Schmalkaldic War (1546-47) and the promulgation of the Ausburg Interim (1548) left the fate of German Protestantism in doubt. In the wake of these events, a single protestant town, Magdeburg, offered organized, sustained resistance to Emperor Charles V's drive to consolidate Habsburg hegemony and reinstitute uniform Roman Catholic worship throughout Germany. In a flood of printed pamphlets, Magdeburg's leaders justified their refusal to surrender with forceful appeals to religious belief and German tradition. Magdeburg's resistance, interdiction and eventual siege attracted admiring attention from across Europe. The teachings developed and disseminated by Protestant thinkers in defence of the city's stance would ultimately influence political theorists in Switzerland, France, Scotland and even North America. Magdeburg's ordeal formed a signal crisis in the emergence of German Lutheran confessional identity."The Chancery of God" is the first English language monograph on Magdeburg's anti-Imperial resistance and pamphlet campaign. The book offers an analysis of Magdeburg's printed output (over 200 publications) during the crucial years of 1546-1551, texts which present a broad spectrum of arguments for resistance and suggest a coherent identity and worldview that is characteristically and self-consciously Protestant

Reuchlin, J.
De Arte Cabalistica: On the Art of the Kabbalah
The German humanist Johann Reuchlin (1455-1522) defended the value of Jewish scholarship and literature when it was unwise and unpopular to do so. As G. Lloyd Jones points out, "A marked mistrust of the Jews had developed among Christian scholars during the later Middle Ages. It was claimed that the rabbis had purposely falsified the text of the Old Testament and given erroneous explanations of passages which were capable of a christological interpretation." Christian scholars most certainly did not advocate learning the Hebrew language. Reuchlin was exceptional in pursuing and promoting Hebrew studies, believing that a working knowledge of that language was essential for a true appreciation of the Bible and rabbinic literature. Refusing to join Christian contemporaries who wished to destroy the Kabbalah and the Talmud, he spoke out against ignorance. Christians could have a useful dialogue with Jews if they gained a thorough knowledge of the writings of Jewish exegetes and philosophers. Toward that end he proposed university endowments that aroused the fury of opponents and led to the famous "battle of the books." Reuchlin's keen interest in Jewish mysticism resulted in the publication of De arte cabalistica in 1517. The first part of this dialogue reflects on messianism, the second part on the relation of the Pythagorean system to the Kabbalah, and tdhe third on the "practical Kabbalah." According to Jones, "Reuchlin demonstrates how Christians can make profitable use of Jewish mystical writings, and therefore shares with the reader his understanding of the art of the Kabbalah." That art will reach more readers in this modern English-language translation by Martin and Sarah Goodman. In addition to an introduction by G. Lloyd Jones, this edition of On the Art of the Kabbalah features a new introduction by Moshe Idel, a professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the author of many books, including Kabbalah: New Perspectives.

The Contending Kingdoms. France and England 1420-1700
The kingdoms of France and England were for many centuries military, economic, cultural and colonial rivals. This is particularly true of the early modern period which witnessed the rise of French military hegemony and the expansion of English commerce. Dealing with the period 1450-1700, this collection offers a snapshot of Anglo-French relations across the three centuries from established historians and younger scholars from France, Britain and Luxembourg.Based broadly on 'diplomatic' history, but incorporating wider perspectives from cultural and social or gender history; each essay uncovers the fascinating and complex arrangements that characterize Anglo-French relations in this period. Competition and hostility between the two kingdoms there certainly was, but it took a surprising variety of forms and often proved intellectually productive for one side or the other and sometimes for both. The chapters mix treatments of broad themes and particular circumstances or individuals and each makes specific comparisons with French and English experience across the early-modern period. In so doing they elaborate and go beyond the evidence of Anglo-French hostility to explore evidence of political co-operation and cultural influences, highlighting just how close early modern England's connections with France were, even at times of crisis, van euro 84.50

De opmaat tot de Opstand. Zeeland en het centraal gezag (1566-1572)
Na het mislukken van de geuzenaanval, uitgevoerd met medewerking van de Zeeuwse kerkenraden, op Walcheren in maart 1567, volgde harde repressie en troepenlegering in de steden. De weerstand die dit bij de bevolking opriep, werd nog vergroot door verdere (belasting)maatregelen van Alva. Vlissingen kwam in opstand en weigerde op Pasen 1572 Spaans garnizoen. Met hulp van de Watergeuzen en van Engelse en Franse troepen werd weldra een groot deel van Walcheren onder het gezag van Oranje gebracht. Daarna barstte ook de strijd om de overige eilanden los. In dit boeiende verhaal gaat de aandacht vooral uit naar de steden, die een keuze moesten maken tussen trouw aan het centraal gezag en aansluiting bij de opstandelingen. Clasien Rooze beschrijft welke factoren doorslaggevend waren en wat dit voor de binnenstedelijke verhoudingen betekende. Ook onderzoekt zij het belang van Zeeland voor Oranje en voor de West-Europese zeemogendheden.

Weakness of Will in Renaissance and Reformation Thought
Weakness of will, the phenomenon of acting contrary to one's own better judgment, has remained a prominent discussion topic of philosophy. The history of this discussion in ancient, medieval, and modern times has been outlined in many studies. Weakness of Will in Renaissance and Reformation Thought is, however, the first book to cover the fascinating source materials on weakness of will between 1350 and 1650. In addition to considering the work of a broad range of Renaissance authors (including Petrarch, Donato Acciaiuoli, John Mair, and Francesco Piccolomini), Risto Saarinen explores the theologically coloured debates of the Reformation period, such as those provided by Martin Luther, Philip Melanchthon, John Calvin, and Lambert Daneau. He goes on to discuss the impact of these authors on prominent figures of early modernity, including Shakespeare, Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz. While most of the historical research on weakness of will has focused on the reception history of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Saarinen pays attention to the Platonic and Stoic discussions and their revival during the Renaissance and the Reformation. He also shows the ways in which Augustine's discussion of the divided will is intertwined with the Christian reception of ancient Greek ethics, and argues that the theological underpinnings of early modern authors do not rule out weakness of will, but transform the philosophical discussion and lead it towards new solutions.

Schramm, B. & K.I. Stjerna (ed.)
Martin Luther, the Bible, and the Jewish People. A Reader
The place and significance of Martin Luther in the long history of Christian anti-Jewish polemic has been and continues to be a contested issue. It is true that Luther's anti-Jewish rhetoric intensified toward the end of his life, but reading Luther with a careful eye toward "the Jewish question," it becomes clear that Luther's theological presuppositions toward Judaism and the Jewish people are a central, core component of his thought throughout his career, not just at the end. It follows then that it is impossible to understand the heart and building blocks of Luther's theology without acknowledging the crucial role of "the Jews" in his fundamental thinking.

Luther was constrained by ideas, images, and superstitions regarding the Jews and Judaism that he inherited from medieval Christian tradition. But the engine in the development of Luther's theological thought as it relates to the Jews is his biblical hermeneutics. Just as "the Jewish question" is a central, core component of his thought, so biblical interpretation (and especially Old Testament interpretation) is the primary arena in which fundamental claims about the Jews and Judaism are formulated and developed.

Witchcraft and Inquisition in Early Modern Venice
In early modern Europe, ideas about nature, God, demons and occult forces were inextricably connected and much ink and blood was spilled in arguments over the characteristics and boundaries of nature and the supernatural. Seitz uses records of Inquisition witchcraft trials in Venice to uncover how individuals across society, from servants to aristocrats, understood these two fundamental categories. Others have examined this issue from the points of view of religious history, the history of science and medicine, or the history of witchcraft alone, but this work brings these sub-fields together to illuminate comprehensively the complex forces shaping early modern beliefs.

Shoulson, Jeffrey S.
Fictions of Conversion: Jews, Christians, and Cultures of Change in Early Modern England
The fraught history of England's Long Reformation is a convoluted if familiar story: in the space of twenty-five years, England changed religious identity three times. In 1534 England broke from the papacy with the Act of Supremacy that made Henry VIII head of the church; nineteen years later the act was overturned by his daughter Mary, only to be reinstated at the ascension of her half-sister Elizabeth. Buffeted by political and confessional cross-currents, the English discovered that conversion was by no means a finite, discrete process. In Fictions of Conversion, Jeffrey S. Shoulson argues that the vagaries of religious conversion were more readily negotiated when they were projected onto an alien identity-one of which the potential for transformation offered both promise and peril but which could be kept distinct from the emerging identity of Englishness: the Jew. Early modern Englishmen and -women would have recognized an uncannily familiar religious chameleon in the figure of the Jewish converso, whose economic, social, and political circumstances required religious conversion, conformity, or counterfeiting. Shoulson explores this distinctly English interest in the Jews who had been exiled from their midst nearly three hundred years earlier, contending that while Jews held out the tantalizing possibility of redemption through conversion, the trajectory of falling in and out of divine favor could be seen to anticipate the more recent trajectory of England's uncertain path of reformation. In translations such as the King James Bible and Chapman's Homer, dramas by Marlowe, Shakespeare, and Jonson, and poetry by Donne, Vaughan, and Milton, conversion appears as a cypher for and catalyst of other transformations-translation, alchemy, and the suspect religious enthusiasm of the convert-that preoccupy early modern English cultures of change.

Soergel, P. M.
Miracles and the Protestant Imagination: The Evangelical Wonder Book in Reformation Germany
The wonder book was a new genre that appeared in the troubled years following Luther's death in 1546 and the outbreak of religious wars at mid century. Originally conceived as a kind of apocalyptic text intended to interpret the "signs of the times" during this uncertain period, these books were filled with accounts of celestial visions, comets, natural disasters, monstrous births, and other seeming signs and portents, events in which the hand of God was revealed.
As the genre developed, Philip Soergel shows, its authors, mostly Lutheran divines, came increasingly to delve into the theology of miracles and the supernatural. Writing for a mostly clerical audience, they hoped to encourage the broad revival of a sense of divine presence in everyday life. Thus, in contrast to generations of scholars who have assumed that the Reformation represented a vital step on the way to the "disenchantment of the world", Soergel's groundbreaking study reveals that German evangelicals were themselves active enchanters.

Speelman, dr. H.A.
Biechten bij Calvijn. Over het geheim van heilig communiceren
Calvijn was typisch een mens uit de late middeleeuwen, komend uit een wereld van orde en eenheid. Tegelijk leefde hij volop in de vroegmoderne wereld waarin van alles in beweging was. In die nieuwe wereld trachtte hij bewogen, gedreven en onrustig enige orde aan te brengen, zowel in de theorie als in praktijk. De zestiende-eeuwse kerk werd beheerst door meerdere dwingende constructies en systemen, waarvan het biecht- en boetesysteem het klassieke voorbeeld is. In hoeverre Calvijn zich daadwerkelijk daarvan heeft willen losmaken, is een thema dat in dit boek zichtbaar wordt gemaakt.

De centrale vraag van Biechten bij Calvijn is in welke mate Calvijn aansluiting zocht bij de middeleeuwse biecht. Vanuit een nieuwe kijk op bestaande bronnen en vanuit nieuwe bronnen wordt onder andere uitgebreid aandacht gegeven aan de middeleeuwse boete- en biechtpraktijk en aan de vijf etappes waarin Calvijn in vierentwintig jaar zijn boete- en biechtsysteem in Geneve en Straatsburg ontwikkelde.

Stanglin, Keith D., Thomas McCall
Jacob Arminius: Theologian of Grace
Jacob Arminius (1559-1609) is one of the few theologians in the history of Christianity who has lent his name to a significant theological movement. The dissemination of his thought throughout Europe, Great Britain, and North America, along with the appeal of his ideas in current Protestant evangelical spheres (whether rightly understood or misunderstood), continue to attract both scholarly and popular attention. Keith Stanglin and Thomas McCall's Jacob Arminius offers a constructive synthesis of the current state of Arminius studies. There is a chasm separating technical, scholarly discussions of Arminius and popular-level appeals to his thought. The authors seek to bridge the scholarly and general discussions, providing an account based on interaction with all the primary sources and latest secondary research that will be helpful to the scholar as well as comprehensible and relevant to the undergraduate student. The authors describe key elements of Arminius' theology with careful attention to its proper context; they also explore the broader theological implications of his views.

Starr-LeBeau, Gretchen D.
In the Shadow of the Virgin: Inquisitors, Friars, and "Conversos" in Guadalupe, Spain
On June 11, 1485, in the pilgrimage town of Guadalupe, the Holy Office of the Inquisition executed Alonso de Paredes - a converted Jew who posed an economic and political threat to the town's powerful friars - as a heretic. Wedding engrossing narratives of Paredes and other figures with astute historical analysis, this finely wrought study reconsiders the relationship between religious identity and political authority in late-Medieval and early-modern Spain.

Gretchen Starr-LeBeau concentrates on the Inquisition's handling of conversos (converted Jews and their descendants) in Guadalupe, taking religious identity to be a complex phenomenon that was constantly re-imagined and reconstructed in light of changing personal circumstances and larger events.She demonstrates that the Inquisition reified the ambiguous religious identities of conversos by defining them as devout or (more often) heretical. And she argues that political figures used this definitional power of the Inquisition to control local populations and to increase their own authority.

In the Shadow of the Virgin is unique in pointing out that the power of the Inquisition came from the collective participation of witnesses, accusers, and even sometimes its victims. For the first time, it draws the connection between the malleability of religious identity and the increase in early modern political authority. It shows that, from the earliest days of the modern Spanish Inquisition, the Inquisition reflected the political struggles and collective religious and cultural anxieties of those who were drawn into participating in it.

Subrahmanyam, S.
From Tagus to the Ganges.
Like its companion volume Mughals and Franks, this book deploys the concept of 'connected histories' to shed important light on aspects of the history of early modern Eurasia. While the main focus is on relations between Europeans and South Asia, other parts of the world have also been discussed in detail. In this volume Sanjay Subrahmanyam critically analyses the archival data to challenge certain enduring beliefs regarding temporal and geographical frontiers in the task of history writing. He questions old debates and examines hitherto neglected aspects of South and Southeast Asian history. This will interest students and scholars of Indian and South Asian history, medieval history, early modern India, as well as politics.

Mughals and Ranks
Like its companion From Tagus to the Ganges, this book deploys the concept of 'connected histories' to shed important light on aspects of the history of early modern Eurasia. It reflects on two and a half centuries of Mughal-European relations, beginning with the early years of the Mughals in India, and ending with the eighteenth century. The volume demonstrates that the interface and balance of power between the Mughals and the Europeans are an integral part of a wider system of international political alliances. Sanjay Subrahmanyam introduces the idea of 'contained conflict', which is used as a paradigm to study political and commercial relations in the period. He also questions the lines of political and cultural division that traditional history writing has accepted. This will interest students and scholars of Indian and South Asian history, medieval history, early modern India, as well as politics.

Suss, Rene
Luther. Een sympathieke potentaat
In Luther, een sympathieke potentaat schetst de Amsterdamse theoloog dr. Rene Suss (1939) kerkhervormer Luther (1483) zoals hij zelden eerder werd beschreven, met al zijn zwakheden en sterke eigenschappen. Luther geportretteerd als 'a Mentsch'. In veel opzichten is dit boek een vervolg op de studie die Suss in 2006 publiceerde, Luthers theologisch testament. Hierin analyseert hij Luthers antisemitisme, onder andere manifest in diens schotschrift Von den Juden und ihren Lugen.

Alle ethiek, alle moraliteit was voor Luther gebaseerd op de rechtvaardiging door het geloof alleen, op de solidariteit die besloten ligt in vaardiging door het geloof alleen, op de solidariteit die besloten ligt in het simul iustus et peccator. Met lege handen staan voor God. Dit uitgangspunt verschafte Luther een ruimte van denken en handelen die hij tevoren nimmer had ervaren.

Suss, Rene
Luthers theologisch testament. Over de Joden en hun leugens. Inleiding, vertaling, commentaar, tweede druk
In 1543 verscheen Luthers Von den Juden und ihren Lugen, een onverholen smaadschrift dat een ongemakkelijk licht werpt op het begin van de Reformatie. Luthers antisemitisme is door theologen altijd gebagatelliseerd. Suss toont aan dat diens aversie tegen de Joden een structureel karakter draagt en reeds aantoonbaar is in zijn vroegste geschriften. Geen uitglijder dus, maar een programmapunt. Het onheil dat mens en wereld treft, schrijft Luther bij voorkeur op het conto van de Joden.

Suss' studie bevat de eerste volledige vertaling van Luthers geschrift in het Nederlands, aangevuld met 'Een waarschuwing voor de Joden', een appendix bij zijn vermoedelijk laatste preek in 1546, zijn sterfjaar.
Aan de tweede druk is een nawoord toegevoegd waarin de auteur ingaat op de commotie rond de eerste druk.

Rene Simon Suss (1939) studeerde theologie in Amsterdam en Brussel, waar hij in 2005 promoveerde op het thema Luther en de Joden. Van 1984 tot 1999 was hij werkzaam als predikant in de Nederlandse Hervormde Kerk. Nu is hij actief binnen de Joodse gemeenschap.

Swart, K. W.
William of Orange and the Revolt of the Netherlands, 1572-84
The figure of Prince William of Orange (1572-84) dominates the political landscape of the 16th century Netherlands, and in many ways personifies the Dutch revolt against Spanish hegemony. Yet despite the European significance of his struggle, there has not been a major English-language study of William since C.V. Wedgwood's biography published in 1944. As such, scholars should welcome this publication of K.W. Swart's biography of the first of the hereditary stadholders of the United Provinces. Originally available only in Dutch, this edition provides an English speaking audience with a detailed account of William's role in the Dutch Revolt that reflects the vast amount of scholarship undertaken in the field of European political and religious history. In the book, Swart explores the means by which William established his rule in Holland and Zeeland in the 1570s, and provides an analysis of William's relations with the provincial states, the States-General and the towns, and the creation of a new system of government and finance. Within this framework of national history, he is always careful to locate the subject in its broad international context, thus adding to our wider understanding of this turbulent period. Moreover, Swart avoids the uncritical glorification of William evident in some previous works, and asks searching questions concerning the wisdom of William's decisions, such as that to break up the pre-1572 unity of the Habsburg Netherlands. In so doing, Swart provides a balanced view that not only takes Protestant views into account, but also contemplates the Revolt form the perspective of the Catholic population and shows sympathy for Charles V's and Philip II's predicament

Sweet, W. & Hart, H.
Responses to the Enlightenment. An Exchange on Foundations, Faith, and Community
Since the time of the Enlightenment in Western Europe, discussions of faith and reason have often pitted the believer against the skeptic, the theist against the atheist, and the person of one faith against the person of no professed faith. But the relation of reason to faith has been a matter of debate among believers as well. There are those who hold that religious faith can be proven or supported by rational argument. Others say that to try to give reasons and arguments does violence to religious faith, or opens it to misunderstanding and doubt, or trivializes it. Responses to the Enlightenment: An Exchange on Foundations, Faith, and Community is a dialogue between Hendrik Hart and William Sweet, two philosophers who identify themselves as Christians, and who seek to respond to the challenges of the Enlightenment and its legacy. The authors approach the relation of faith to reason, however, in very different ways: Hart from the perspective of the Calvinian tradition and postmodern philosophy, Sweet from the Catholic tradition and analytic philosophy. Among the topics discussed are the nature of religious faith and of reason, liberalism and orthodoxy in religion, the relation of religious experience and rationality, and building community in a religiously and culturally pluralistic world. This exchange presents two distinctive perspectives to some of the major challenges of the reason to religious belief, but seeks to find common ground between them.

Targoff, R.
Common Prayer. The Language of Public Devotion in Early Modern England
"Common Prayer" explores the relationship between prayer and poetry in the century following the Protestant Reformation. Ramie Targoff challenges the conventional and largely misleading distinctions between the ritualized world of Catholicism and the more individualistic focus of Protestantism. Early modern England, she demonstrates, was characterized less by the triumph of religious interiority than by efforts to shape public forms of devotion. This provocatively revisionist argument will have major implications for early modern studies.
Through readings of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet, " Richard Hooker's "Lawes of Ecclesiastical Politie," Philip Sidney's "Apology for Poetry" and his translations of the Psalms, John Donne's sermons and poems, and George Herbert's "The Temple, " Targoff uncovers the period's pervasive and often surprising interest in cultivating public and formalized models of worship. At the heart of this study lies an original and daring approach to understanding the origins of devotional poetry; Targoff shows how the projects of composing eloquent verse and improving liturgical worship come to be deeply intertwined. New literary practices, then, became a powerful means of forging common prayer, or controlling private and otherwise unmanageable expressions of faith.

Teresa (Teresia) van Avila
Het boek van mijn leven
Er zijn niet zoveel mensen die na enkele eeuwen nog aandacht krijgen omwille van hun geschriften. Een van hen is zeker Teresa van Avila (1515-1582). Ze is een buitengewone persoonlijkheid en daarom weinig begrepen door haar omgeving. Op aanvraag van haar begeleider schrijft ze haar levensverhaal en getuigt ze eerlijk van haar geestelijke ervaringen. Nooit heeft ze de bedoeling te schrijven voor een groot publiek. Toch uit ze de wens dat ook andere menen voordeel hebben bij het lezen van haar autobiografie.

Zo gebeurt het ook tijdens haar leven: de tekst circuleert al bij enkele mensen; een aantal jaren na haar door wordt hij gedrukt. Tot op vandaag wordt haar verhaal steeds opnieuw uitgegeven en in alle mogelijke talen vertaald. Door haar authenticiteit overstijgt Teresa alle tijden en culturen: zij heeft het in haar verhaal over het diepste dat de mens beroert, namelijk het zoeken naar de waarheid, de ontmoeting met het mysterie van God. De charme van Teresa bestaat o.a. in de eenvoud van haar stijl, de originaliteit van de beeldspraak, het vermogen tot introspectie en analyse, de nuchtere benadering van situaties, de menselijke wijsheid.

We mogen gerust stellen dat haar verhaal tot de klassiekers van de wereldliteratuur behoort. Geen enkele studie over mystiek kan de geschriften van Teresa nog links laten liggen. Zij schrijft niet over onverstaanbare dogmas, maar wel over het boeiende avontuur van het leven dat zijn oorsprong en doel vindt in God. Tezelfdertijd ontplooit ze zich en laat ze zich kennen als een welbewuste vrouw in een door mannen beheerste maatschappij en kerk.

Opvallend bij deze nieuwe uitgave zijn: de uitgebreide inleiding die een goed inzicht geeft in de betekenis van dit boek, en de talrijke voetnoten die de context of de achtergrond verhelderen. Ingeleid door Elisabeth Peeters en Ulrich Dobhan, vertaald door Carlos Noyen.

Teresa (Teresia) van Avila
Kloosterstichtingen
Voor Teresia van Avila betekent de mystieke ervaring: ontmoeting met God die vuur is, aanstekelijk en verwarrend. De vlam van haar Godservaring heeft ze willen ontsteken op veel plaatsen en in veel harten. De God die haar naar binnen trok diep bij Zich, zette haar ook op weg. Gedurende vijftien jaar doorkruist Teresa met paard en huifkar een deel van Spanje, door onherbergzame gebieden, over hobbelige paden, onder een brandende zon of in de bijtende koude, zonder geld, zonder aanzien (ze is trouwens maar een vrouw), maar met een oneindig vertrouwen in haar God. Geen moeite was haar teveel als het erom ging burchten van gebed te bouwen als versterkte torens binnen de stad Gods. Spanning, fijne humor, vertelkunst, mensenkennis, wijze raad, een stuk geschiedenis, geestelijke bewogenheid, je vindt het hier op elke bladzijde. Vooral voel je nog de gloed van de Godsliefde die in haar hart brandde. Dit boek is zeer toegankelijk voor een ruim publiek. Het is een aangename kennismaking met een zeer menselijke heilige, met een mystica die een diepe Godservaring paart aan nuchter organisatietalent.

Teresa (Teresia) van Avila
Weg van volmaaktheid & Hooglied
Door haar rijke persoonlijkheid en diepe religieuze ervaring, en niet het minst door haar levendige, frisse stijl, weet Teresia elke generatie opnieuw te boeien. In dit eerste deel bieden we de 'Weg van volmaaktheid' aan, het handboek en kompas van Teresa's spiritualiteit. Geschreven in een tijd van woelige veranderingen en verwarring, blijkt dit boek steeds meer een trefzekere gids op de weg van gebed en evangelisch leven. Teresa schrijft meeslepend en pittig, met een fijne opmerkingsgave; diepzinnig sprekend over God, maar dikwijls met een vleugje humor. Zij vertelt feitelijk haar eigen levensavontuur met God, haar manier van met Hem omgaan. Ze is dan ook zo bemoedigend en levensnabij. In het Hooglied geeft Teresa een heel eigen commentaar op het gelijknamig bijbelboek dat de liefde bezingt tussen twee jonge mensen als ideaalbeeld van Gods liefdevolle relatie met zijn volk. Voor Teresa is het een inspiratiebron om iets te verwoorden van de doorvoelde liefde voor God die enkel met beelden en poezie kan gesuggereerd worden.

Teter, M.
Sinners on Trial. Jews and Sacrilege after the Reformation
In post-Reformation Poland--the largest state in Europe and home to the largest Jewish population in the world--the Catholic Church suffered profound anxiety about its power after the Protestant threat. Magda Teter reveals how criminal law became a key tool in the manipulation of the meaning of the sacred and in the effort to legitimize Church authority. The mishandling of sacred symbols was transformed from a sin that could be absolved into a crime that resulted in harsh sentences of mutilation, hanging, decapitation, and, principally, burning at the stake. Teter casts new light on the most infamous type of sacrilege, the accusation against Jews for desecrating the eucharistic wafer. These sacrilege trials were part of a broader struggle over the meaning of the sacred and of sacred space at a time of religious and political uncertainty, with the eucharist at its center. But host desecration--defined in the law as sacrilege--went beyond anti-Jewish hatred to reflect Catholic-Protestant conflict, changing conditions of ecclesiastic authority and jurisdiction, and competition in the economic marketplace. Recounting dramatic stories of torture, trial, and punishment, this is the first book to consider the sacrilege accusations of the early modern period within the broader context of politics and common crime. Teter draws on previously unexamined trial records to bring out the real-life relationships among Catholics, Jews, and Protestants and challenges the commonly held view that following the Reformation, Poland was a "state without stakes"--uniquely a country without religious persecution.

De kunst van het twijfelen. Sebastian Castellio (1515-1563): humanist, calvinist, vrijdenker
Dit boek vertelt het verhaal van een man die de katholieke kerk vaarwel zei, koos voor de reformatie van Johannes Calvijn en uiteindelijk een geheel eigen weg insloeg.

1533: Europa wordt door godsdienstoorlogen geteisterd. Terwijl katholieken en protestanten hun waarheden in gewapend beton goten, durfde Sebastian Castellio te pleiten voor de twijfel en voor tolerantie. Castellio's optimistische mensbeeld, zijn opvatting dat de bijbel fouten en feilen bevatte, en zijn pleidooi voor religieuze tolerantie, maken hem tot een voorloper van de Verlichting. En brachten hem in conflict met Johannes Calvijn. Maar hij was ook een aanhanger van de extatische profeet David Joris. Castellio was zijn tijd zo ver vooruit dat zijn geluid verstomde. In de twintigste eeuw werd hij herontdekt. Nu debatten over godsdienstvrijheid en tolerantie steeds weer oplaaien, is de kunst van het twijfelen actueler dan ooit.

Viroli, Maurizio
Redeeming The Prince: The Meaning of Machiavelli's Masterpiece
In Redeeming The Prince, one of the world's leading Machiavelli scholars puts forth a startling new interpretation of arguably the most influential but widely misunderstood book in the Western political tradition. Overturning popular misconceptions and challenging scholarly consensus, Maurizio Viroli also provides a fresh introduction to the work. Seen from this original perspective, five centuries after its composition, The Prince offers new insights into the nature and possibilities of political liberation.

Rather than a bible of unscrupulous politics, The Prince, Viroli argues, is actually about political redemption--a book motivated by Machiavelli's patriotic desire to see a new founding for Italy. Written in the form of an oration, following the rules of classical rhetoric, the book condenses its main message in the final section, "Exhortation to liberate Italy from the Barbarians." There Machiavelli creates the myth of a redeemer, an ideal ruler who ushers in an era of peace, freedom, and unity. Contrary to scholars who maintain that the exhortation was added later, Viroli proves that Machiavelli composed it along with the rest of the text, completing the whole by December 1513 or early 1514.

Only if we read The Prince as a theory of political redemption, Viroli contends, can we at last understand, and properly evaluate, the book's most controversial pages on political morality, as well as put to rest the cliche of Machiavelli as a "Machiavellian".

Maurizio Viroli is professor emeritus of politics at Princeton University and professor of political communication at the University of Italian Switzerland in Lugano.

Visser, A. S. Q.
Reading Augustine in the Reformation. The Flexibility of Intellectual Authority in Europe, 1500-1620
Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) was regarded by sixteenth century Europe as one of the most contested religious and philosophical authorities. He was cast as a characteristically Lutheran, Catholic, or Calvinist thinker, and even as the ideal Erasmian pastor. These wildly contrasting receptions raise crucial questions about the significance of Augustine's thought in the Reformation period. They also show the complex relationship between religious change and the new intellectual culture of Renaissance humanism. Drawing on a variety of printed and manuscript sources, Arnoud Visser breaks new ground in three ways. He systematically grounds Augustine's theological reception in the history of reading and the material culture of books and manuscripts. He does not confine his examination to particular confessional parties or specific geographic boundaries, but offers a cross-confessional account of Augustine's appropriation in early modern Europe. Finally, he provides crucial insight into the nature of intellectual authority in the early modern period. Central in this study are the production, circulation and consumption of Augustine's works. Visser examines the impact of the new art of print, the rise of humanist scholarship, and the emerging confessional divisions on Augustine's reception. He shows how editors navigated a wealth of patristic information by using search tools and anthologies. He also explains how individual readers used their copies and how they applied their knowledge in public debates alongside other media of communication. Reading Augustine in the Reformation argues that the emerging confessional pressures did not restrict intellectual life, as has often been claimed, but promoted new scholarship.

Visser, S. J.
Samuel Naeranus (1582-1641) en Johannes Naeranus (1608-1679). Twee remonstrantse theologen op de bres voor godsdienstige verdraagzaamheid
In deze intellectuele dubbelbiografie van Samuel en Johannes Naeranus staat de strijd voor religieuze verdraagzaamheid centraal. Visser laat zien hoe vader en zoon, leden van een bekend zeventiende-eeuws remonstrants predikantengeslacht, handen en voeten gaven aan hun streven naar tolerantie, vooral ten behoeve van de socinianen, unitariers uit Polen. In intellectueel opzicht stond Johannes Naeranus in de schaduw stond van zijn vader, maar als netwerker en fondsenwerver voor de socinianen is hij van uitzonderlijke betekenis geweest. De activiteiten van vader en zoon Naeranus laten zien, dat het streven naar religieuze tolerantie in de zeventiende eeuw grensoverschrijdend kon zijn, zowel in geografische als in confessionele zin.

Doordat gebruik is gemaakt van vele, nooit eerder bestudeerde brieven en ook Poolse bronnen in het onderzoek zijn betrokken, biedt dit boek een belangrijke aanvulling op de bestaande literatuur over de betrekkingen tussen socinianen en hun Nederlandse geestverwanten

Waite, G.K.
Eradicating the Devil's Minions: Anabaptists and Witches in Reformation Europe
As a religious sect, the Anabaptists were seen to practice unusual rituals and follow an eccentric set of beliefs. One story, for instance, purports that an Anabaptist prophet, claiming to have visited heaven, persuaded his followers to run naked through the streets of Amsterdam. Eradicating the Devil's Minions investigates these beliefs in the context of Reformation Europe, a time in which persecution, religious intolerance, and witch-hunting were rampant.
Focusing primarily on the Habsburg-controlled regions of Europe, Gary K. Waite argues that the persecution of Anabaptists did not go hand in hand with the outbreak of witch-hunts in the mid-sixteenth century. Rather, distrust of Anabaptists predated the first major witch panic of 1562-3, and Waite suggests that the virulent propaganda against Anabaptist heretics helped convince governments of the existence of a diabolical threat. Although Anabaptists rejected religious magic, they were consistently demonized by Catholic and Lutheran polemicists.
Eradicating the Devil's Minions is an investigation into the roots of religious intolerance in Reformation Europe, and a unique examination of mass hysteria and social extremism.

The Reformation. Towards a New History
This book recasts the story of the Reformation by bringing together two histories: the Encounter between Europe and the western hemisphere beginning in 1492; and the fragmentation of European Christendom in the sixteenth century. In so doing, it restores resonance to 'idolatry', 'cannibal', 'barbarian', even as it moves past such polemics to trace multiple understandings of divinity, matter and human nature. So many aspects of human life, from marriage and family through politics to ways of thinking about space and time, were called into question. Debates on human nature and conversion forged new understandings of religious identity. Debates on the relationship of humanity to the material world forged new understandings of image and ritual, new understandings of physics. By the end of the century, there was not one 'Christian religion', but many, and many understandings of the Christian in the world.

Warner, L.
The Ideas of Man and Woman in Renaissance France. Print, Rhetoric, and Law
The Ideas of Man and Woman in Renaissance France provides the first comprehensive comparison of the printed debates in the 1500s over the superiority or inferiority of woman - the Querelle des femmes - and the dignity and misery of man. Analysing these writings side by side, Lyndan Warner reveals the extent to which Renaissance authors borrowed commonplaces from both traditions as they praised or blamed man or woman and habitually considered opposite and contrary points of view. In the law courts reflections on the virtues and vices of man and woman had a practical application-to win cases-and as Warner demonstrates, Parisian lawyers employed this developing rhetoric in family disputes over inheritance and marriage, and amplified it in the published versions of their pleadings. Tracing these ideas and modes of thinking from the writer's quill to the workshops and boutiques of printers and booksellers, Warner uses probate inventories to follow the books to the households of their potential male and female readers. Warner reveals the shifts in printed discussions of human nature from the 1500s to the early 1600s and shows how booksellers adapted the ways they marketed and sold new genres such as essays and lawyers' pleadings.

Calvin Today: Reformed Theology and the Future of the Church
This inspiring collection of essays spells out the relevance of John Calvin's theology for today in three areas:
Faith: Calvin's theology asks how God deals with the persistent presence of human sin. For Calvin, the chief end of life is to know God and devote our life to his glory. The still topical point is that we are freed from our fixation with ourselves, thereby recognising and living out our true reality in relation to God.
Ecumenism: The unity of the Church in Christ is of central importance to Calvin. We must do our utmost to make it visible. In Calvin's view, if there is agreement in the understanding of God and grace, all other differences have no divisive importance. This still characterises Reformed understanding today.
Public responsibility: Calvin posed the question about the church's public responsibility as no other Reformer did. Part 3 reveals the sources of the worldwide impact of Calvin's and Reformed theology on politics, the law, scholarship and the organising of life in society, including civil society.

Westman, R.S.
The Copernican Question. Prognostication, Skepticism, and Celestial Order
In 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus publicly defended his hypothesis that the earth is a planet and the sun a body resting near the center of a finite universe. But why did Copernicus make this bold proposal? And why did it matter?

The Copernican Question reframes this pivotal moment in the history of science, centering the story on a conflict over the credibility of astrology that erupted in Italy just as Copernicus arrived in 1496. Copernicus engendered enormous resistance when he sought to protect astrology by reconstituting its astronomical foundations. Robert S. Westman shows that efforts to answer the astrological skeptics became a crucial unifying theme of the early modern scientific movement. His interpretation of this 'long sixteenth century', from the 1490s to the 1610s, offers a new framework for understanding the great transformations in natural philosophy in the century that followed.

Whitford, David M.
The Curse of Ham in the Early Modern Era. The Bible and the Justifications for Slavery
For hundreds of years, the biblical story of the Curse of Ham was marshalled as a justification of serfdom, slavery and human bondage. According to the myth, having seen his father Noah naked, Ham's is cursed to have his descendants be forever slaves. In this new book the Curse of Ham is explored in its Reformation context, revealing how it became the cornerstone of the Christian defence of slavery and the slave trade for the next four hundred years. It shows how broader medieval interpretations of the story became marginalized in the early modern period as writers such as Annius of Viterbo and George Best began to weave the legend of Ham into their own books, expanding and adding to the legend in ways that established a firm connection between Ham, Africa, slavery and race. For although in the original biblical text Ham himself is not cursed and race is never mentioned, these writers helped develop the story of Ham into an ideological and theological defence for African slavery, at the precise time that the Transatlantic Slave Trade began to establish itself as a major part of the European economy during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Skilfully weaving together elements of theology, literature and history, this book provides a fascinating insight into the ways that issues of religion, economics and race could collide in the Reformation world. It will prove essential reading, not only for those with an interest in early modern history, but for anyone wishing to try to comprehend the origins of arguments used to justify slavery and segregation right up to the 1960s.

Wickersham, Jane K.
Rituals of Prosecution: The Roman Inquisition and the Prosecution of Philo-protestants in Sixteenth-century Italy
During the Counter-Reformation, inquisition manual authors working in Italian lands adapted the Catholic Church's traditional tactics of inquisitorial procedure, which had been formulated in the medieval period, to the prosecution of philo-Protestants. Through a comparison of the texts of four such authors to contemporary inquisition processes, Jane K. Wickersham situates the Roman inquisition's prosecution of philo-Protestants within the larger framework of the complex religious upheavals of the sixteenth century.Identifying the critical role played by ritual practice in discovering and prosecuting heretical subjects, Wickersham uncovers two core reasons for its use: first, as a practical means of prosecuting a variety of philo-Protestant beliefs, and second, as an approach firmly grounded within the Catholic Church's history of prosecuting heresy. Finally, Rituals of Prosecution provides an in-depth examination of the inquisitorial processes of urban residents from humble socio-economic backgrounds, providing new insight into how the prosecution of ordinary people was conducted in the early modern era.

God's Instruments. Political Conduct in the England of Oliver Cromwell
The Puritan Revolution escaped the control of its creators. The parliamentarians who went to war with Charles I in 1642 did not want or expect the fundamental changes that would follow seven years later: the trial and execution of the king, the abolition of the House of Lords, and the creation of the only republic in English history. There were startling and unexpected developments, too, in religion and ideas: the spread of unorthodox doctrines; the attainment of a wide measure of liberty of conscience; new thinking about the moral and intellectual bases of politics and society. God's Instruments centres on the principal instrument of radical change, Oliver Cromwell, and on the unfamiliar landscape of the decade he dominated, from the abolition of the monarchy in 1649 to the return of the Stuart dynasty in 1660. Its theme is the relationship between the beliefs or convictions of politicians and their decisions and actions. Blair Worden explores the biblical dimension of Puritan politics; the ways that a belief in the workings of divine providence affected political conduct; Cromwell's commitment to liberty of conscience and his search for godly reformation through educational reform; the constitutional premises of his rule and those of his opponents in the struggle for supremacy between parliamentary and military rule; the relationship between conceptions of civil and religious liberty. The conflicts Worden reconstructs are placed in the perspective of long-term developments, of which historians have lost sight, in ideas about parliament and about freedom. The final chapters turn to the guiding convictions of two writers at the heart of politics, John Milton and the royalist Edward Hyde, the future Earl of Clarendon. Material from previously published essays, much of it expanded and extensively revised, comes together with freshly written chapters.

Reconsidering John Calvin
Randall C. Zachman places Calvin in conversation with theologians such as Pascal, Kierkegaard, Ezra the Scribe, Julian of Norwich and Karl Barth, and attends to themes in Calvin's theology which are often overlooked. Zachman draws out Calvin's use of astronomy and great concern to see ourselves in comparison to the immensity of the universe, acknowledging in wonder and awe our nothingness before God. Throughout, Zachman presents a Calvin who seeks a route out of self-deception to self-knowledge, though Kierkegaard shows that it is love, and not judgment, that most deeply reveals us to ourselves. The book discusses Calvin's understanding of the election of the Jews and their relationship to God, and further reconsiders Calvin's understanding of judgment and how the call to love our neighbour is undermined by the formation of alliances.

Early French Reform. The Theology and Spirituality of Guillaume Farel
Reminding us that the Genevan Reformation does not begin and end with John Calvin, this book provides an introduction to Guillaume Farel (1489-1565), one of several important yet often overlooked French-speaking reformers. Born in 1489 near Gap, France, Farel was an important first-generation French-speaking Reformer and one of the most influential early leaders of the Reform movement in what is now French-speaking Switzerland. Educated in Paris, he slowly began to question Catholic orthodoxy, and by the 1520s was an active protestant preacher, resulting in his exile to Switzerland. Part of Farel's aggressive work in this area brought him to Geneva several times, where in 1535 and 1536 he secured votes in favour of the Reform, and later in 1536 persuaded the young theologian John Calvin to stay. Farel also penned Geneva's confession of faith of that year and their ecclesiastical articles of the next.

As such, this volume underlines the fact that Calvin entered the reform movement in Geneva in a situation in which Farel had been already deeply involved. To better understand that situation, the book is divided into two parts. The first provides a rich and nuanced portrait of Farel's early thought by way of interpretive essays; the second section offers translations of a number of Farel's key texts. These translations include some of the first widely-accessible full-length translations of Farel's work into English.

Offering both a scholarly overview of Farel and his life, and access to his own words, this book demonstrates the importance of Farel to the Reformation. It will be welcomed not only by scholars engaged in research on French reform movements, but also by students of history, theology, or literature wishing to read some of the earliest theological texts originally written in French.
