Early Modern Age Revocation Sermons of Converts to Protestantism
Languages of publication
This study focuses on the so-called Revocation Sermons (Revocations-Predigte, also referred to as Wiederrufs-Predigte), i.e. the sermons in which their authors, clergymen, publicly renounced their Catholic faith and declared their adherence to a Protestant faith. They are, in fact, a type of primary source which is a component of the contemporary controversy, which was a discourse both theological and ecclesiastical-political in its nature. They highlight the complexity of contemporary religious situations and the issue of conversion (and apostasy), including, to a certain degree, also the problem of confessional violence and the awareness of it.
