Johann Sleidan and the Protestant vision of history by Alexandra Kess( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the major challenges faced by the emergent Protestant faith was how to establish itself in a hitherto Catholic world. A key way it found to achieve this was to create a common identity through the fashioning of history, emphasising Protestantism's legitimacy and authority. In this study, the life and works of one of the earliest and most influential Protestant historians, Johann Sleidan (1506-1556), are explored to reveal how history could be used to consolidate the new confession and the states which adopted it." "Providing the first comprehensive account of Sleidan's life, based almost entirely on primary sources, this book offers a convincing background and context for his writings. It also shows how Sleidan's political role as a diplomat impacted on his work as a historian, and how in turn his monumental work influenced political debate in France and Germany. As a moderate who sought to promote accommodation between the rival confessions, Sleidan provides a fascinating subject of study for modern historians seeking to better understand the complex and multi-faceted nature of the early Reformation."--Jacket

Historians recognize that the field of reformed Protestantism is multi-faceted: religious, theological and cultural traditions are critically reflected, occasionally revised and reinterpreted. Political and social changes can have a grave impact on individuals or landscapes. Traditions and change remain interwoven in this process, whether intentional or not
