Augustana College will host the conference “Reforming Reformation” on October 17–19, 2010. The object is to undertake a fundamental rethinking of all possible meanings of the term reformation, concept and label. In order to stimulate such thought, the conferees will be divided into four vaguely “national” panels, emphasizing places that either did not have a “real” reformation or had an odd one. This will serve to put in perspective what far too many people still count as the only true reformation, the Protestant one especially in its Lutheran and Calvinist guises. Those four panels will treat Italy, England (emphasizing the Marian interlude), the Empire and Spain. The conference will be strongly interdisciplinary, with participants from literature, art history, theology and history.
