„Controversia et Confessio“. The culture of controversy leading to confessional consolidation in the late sixteenth century
2009 erschien Band 80 der norwegischen Tidsskrift for Teologi og Kirke. In diesem Band stellt Irene Dingel das Mainzer Editionsprojekt "Controversia et Confessio" vor.
An edition of controversial works which contributed to confessional consolidation in the second half of the sixteenth century is being prepared as part of a project entitled «Controversia et Confessio,» under the auspices of the Academy of Sciences and Literature of Mainz, in cooperation with the Johannes Gutenberg University and the Institute of European History in Mainz. The project is also producing a biographical-bibliographical data bank available on-line for general use. The project is described here against the background of the culture of conflict or controversy that accompanied the interpretation of the Reformation legacy in the later sixteenth century. Work on a revised edition of the Bekenntnisschriften der evangelisch-lutherischen Kirche is also underway.
