Indifference, exile and resistance :The interim of ausburg as the first global crisis of protestantism

Research output: Contribution to journalScientific reviewpeer-review

Abstract

All rights reserved. This article discusses the context, aspects, and consequences of the imperial legislation that Charles V imposed upon the Protestant territories after defeating the Schmalcaldic League. I discuss this period as the first “global crisis” of Protestantism, since for the first time Lutherans had to act under conditions that had been more common for Calvinist believers: the absence of support from significant political players. I further explore the way this impacted discussion of things indifferent, the effect that this crisis on the continent had on the Reformation in England, and the way that theories of resistance were developed across confessional lines.
