RefoRC Panel at EuARe

20 February 2020

The Foundation for Religious Studies “John XXIII” (Fscire) and the RefoRC Consortium are organizing a panel at the European Academy of Religion, June 23, 2020.

Recent research on the ‘Global Reformation’ has opened important new paths in the knowledge of this well-researched subject: however, in some cases, current scholarship on the Reformation is still struggling to become transnational (Benedict, 2018). Indeed, crossing the borders of disciplines is no easier than crossing linguistic or national borders in Reformation studies: nevertheless, a broader view on the historical watershed that the early Reformation represented is key to a deeper and better understanding of its meaning and implications for the past, the present, and the future.
