Description: In 2017 the quincentennial of the Protestant Reformation will be observed. This stream seeks to examine the impacts of Lutheran reform on Scandinavia (and its diasporas) over the last 500 years. Papers are welcome from all fields that examine questions concerning Lutheranism, Lutheran reform, reformations of Lutheranism, and Lutheranism’s relationship to spiritual and temporal affairs. In keeping with current scholarly understandings of the Protestant Reformation as a part of a longer preceding continuum of reform, papers that examine reform and belief from before the Reformation era will be considered.
