The colloquy of Montbéliard : religion and politics in the sixteenth century by Jill Raitt( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the Colloquy of Montbeliard, a theological debate waged in 1586 between Lutherans and Calvinists, Raitt explores the complex array of shifting political alliances and tensions between various religious factions that characterized the Holy Roman Empire and its relations with France after the Peace of Augsburg. She uses the Colloquy in particular to show how doctrinal religious debates often were the result of high-level political intrigue - in this case, an effort to unite the Protestant forces of Europe against Rome and the papal allies." "When the Wars of Religion broke out in France, both sides courted allies. Often these alliances involved confessional tests - usually concerning the Eucharist. Raitt shows that while such complex theological questions would seem to belong in seminaries, in many cases, they took place at the request of people and princes. On the outcome of these debates depended the well-being of towns and villages as well as the disposition of troops and the conduct of wars." "Raitt's study of the "age of confessionalism" uncovers the background and details of the Colloquy of Montbeliard and analyzes the nature and implications of the underlying theological conflict. Unique among books on the Reformation period, it places the theological debate in the context in which it occurred: a pan-European conflict over religion. This singular study will engage scholars of the Reformation period specifically, as well as theologians, historians, and interested layreaders."--Jacket

3 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Especialistas del mundo entero analizan la espiritualidad que caracterizó a un período histórico clave: el fin de la Edad Media y la época de los grandes movimientos reformistas. "Más que una historia de la espiritualidad, este libro es una historia de la teología en sus diferentes manifestaciones y lenguajes. Esta obra es un tesoro de teología que hay que aprovechar para el saber y, sobre todo, para una renovada experiencia y contemplación del Misterio." (José Severino Croatto) "Este libro combina un notablemente importante grupo de estudiosos con una abarcadora visión de la vida religiosa de los cristianos entre el año 1150 y el 1600... Centrándose en la espiritualidad más que en la doctrina, abraza el amplio espectro de la búsqueda religiosa tanto en el ámbito académico como en el popular, las prácticas de devoción y los estudios intelectuales, la experiencia femenina tanto como la masculina. En resumen, este volumen nos desafía a repensar nuestros conocimientos desde una rica y variada (aunque común) tradición." (Theological Studies)
