Workshop | The Impact of the Reformation on the Establishment of Religious Language

FNO 02/ 40-46


In the 16th century a change within the forming of religious language took place. Not only the Reformation was responsible for that change, but also developments that paved the way to it (e.g. Humanism, Hebraism). The changes within religious language thereby not only concern Protestantism, but also Catholicism, which was forced to redefine its dogmatics.

The workshop analyses different models of that kind of forming of language in concrete contact situations. We intend to apply the more
general results of our former workshops on 'Religious Language' (May 2012, June 2013).
