Rich in historical events and colorfully written, this fascinating account of women in the church spans nearly two thousand years of church history. It tells of events and aspirations, determination and disappointment, patience and achievement that mark the history of daughters of the church from the time of Jesus to the present. The authors have endeavored to present an objective story. The very fact that readers may find themselves surprised now and again by the prominent role of women in certain events and movements proves an inequality that historical narrative has often been guilty of. This is a book about women. It is a setting straight off the record -- a restoring of balance to history that has repeatedly played down the significance of the contributions of women to the theology, the witness, the movements, and the growth of the church. An exegetical study of relevant Scripture passages offers stimulating thought for discussion and for serious reevaluation of historical givens. This volume is enriched by pictures, appendixes, bibliography, and indexes. Like many of the women whose stories it tells, this book has a subdued strength that should not be underestimated.

Since its first appearance in 1991, The European Reformation has offered a clear, integrated and coherent analysis and explanation of how Christianity in Western and Central Europe from Iceland to Hungary, from the Baltic to the Pyrenees splintered into separate Protestant and Catholic identities and movements. This new edition embraces and responds to developments in scholarship over the past twenty years. Substantially re-writtenand updated, with both a thorough revision of the text and fully updated references and bibliography, it nevertheless preserves the distinctive features of the original, including its clearly thought-outintegration of theological ideas and political cultures, helping to bridge the gap between theological and social history, and the use of helpful charts and tables that made the original so easy to use.

Ehe und Sexualität im Täufertum der Frühen Neuzeit

Page: 325

Der Problemkomplex Ehe und Sexualität im Täufertum des 16. und frühen 17. Jahrhunderts steht im Zentrum der Arbeit von Katharina Reinholdt. Die Brisanz des Themas ergibt sich zum einen aus seinem Innovationspotential: Innerhalb der zersplitterten religiösen Minderheit kam es neben heimlichen Eheschließungen auch zu Ehetrennungen und Fällen von Bigamie und Polygamie. Diese Vorkommnisse prägten nicht nur das »Image« der Täufer in den Augen der Zeitgenossen, sie haben auch die Entwicklung der Täufer von radikalen Außenseitern zu Beginn der Reformation hin zu einer etablierten religiösen Minderheit im 17. Jahrhundert beeinflusst. Auch die historische Wahrnehmung der Täufer blieb noch lange von den sogenannten »libertinistischen« Tendenzen überschattet. Relevant ist eine Untersuchung über die Ehe bei den Täufern aber auch im Hinblick auf die Bedeutung der Ehe im Kontext der reformatorischen Erneuerungsbestrebungen. So kann die täuferische Vorstellung von der Ehe als ein Gegenentwurf zur lutherischen Auffassung als ein »weltlich Ding« gelesen werden. Im Spannungsfeld der beiden Pole des alten (katholischen) und des neuen (reformatorischen) Eheverständnisses sollte die täuferische Position als eine eigenständige Antwort auf die Frage nach einer neuen Balance zwischen der religiösen und der weltlichen Dimension der Ehe wahrgenommen werden. Die auffälligen Parallelen zu den Radikalen späterer Jahrhunderte lassen vermuten, dass die täuferische Auffassung von der Ehe als ein genuin reformatorisches Phänomen zu begreifen ist und weniger – wie lange vermutet – eine Nachwehe der spätmittelalterlichen Ketzerbewegungen war.

Lutheran tradition has in various ways influenced attitudes to work, the economy, the state, education, and health care. One reason that Lutheran theology has been interpreted in various ways is that it is always influenced by surrounding social and cultural contexts. In a society where the church has lost a great deal of its cultural impact and authority, and where there is a plurality of religious convictions, the question of Lutheran identity has never been more urgent. However, this question is also raised in the Global South where Lutheran churches need to find their identity in a relationship with several other religions. Here this relationship is developed from a minority perspective. Is it possible to develop a Lutheran political theology that gives adequate contributions to issues concerning social and economic justice? What is the role of women in church and society around the world? Is it possible to interpret Lutheran theology in such a way that it includes liberating perspectives? These are some of the questions and issues discussed in this book.

aspirations, the rise of western monasticism was the most note worthy event of the early centuries. The importance of monasteries cannot be overstressed as sources of spirituality, learning and auto nomy in the intensely masculinized, militarized feudal period. Drawing their members from the highest levels of society, women's monasteries provided an outlet for the energy and ambition of strong-willed women, as well as positions of considerable authority. Even from periods relatively inhospitable to learning of all kinds, the memory has been preserved of a good number of women of education. Their often considerable achievements and influence, however, generally lie outside even an expanded definition of philo sophy. Among the most notable foremothers of this early period were several whose efforts signal the possibility of later philosophical work. Radegund, in the sixth century, established one of the first Frankish convents, thereby laying the foundations for women's spiritual and intellectual development. From these beginnings, women's monasteries increased rapidly in both number and in fluence both on the continent and in Anglo-Saxon England. Hilda (d. 680) is well known as the powerful abbsess of the double monastery of Whitby. She was eager for knowledge, and five Eng lish bishops were educated under her tutelage. She is also accounted the patron of Caedmon, the first Anglo-Saxon poet of religious verse. The Anglo-Saxon nun Lioba was versed in the liberal arts as well as Scripture and canon law.

A Woman's Voice in the Reformation

In 1523, in one of the most daring and remarkable events in the history of the Reformation, a woman challenged the Catholic establishment to a public debate. The issue was the persecution of a young Lutheran student in Ingolstadt.Argula von Grumbach's writings on this and many other topics were widely circulated: her first publication alone went through sixteen editions. She addressed the Catholic theologians of Ingolstadt, the Dukes of Bavaria and the Councils of Ingolstadt and Regensburg. She also met with and conducted an extensive correspondence with Luther, Osiander and many of the leading reformers.Professor Peter Matheson here provides translations of all her published works together with introductions. He gives a full biographical account of von Grumbach, analyses her use of Scripture and discusses her role as a woman of the Reformation.The rediscovery of Protestanism's first female theologian and author affords a wealth of new insight into the history of the Reformation; the role of women in Church, state and society; and a woman's use of Scripture, which in many ways anticipates the flowering of feminist theology today.

The Loving Family in Old Europe

Rescuing the premodern family from the grim picture many historians have given us of life in early Europe, "Ancestors" offers a major reassessment of a crucial aspect of European history--and tells a story of age-old domesticity inextricably linked, and surprisingly similar, to our own. An elegant summa on family life in Europe past, this compact and powerful book extends and completes a project begun with Steven Ozment's "When Fathers Ruled: Family Life in Reformation Europe" (Harvard). Here Ozment, the leading historian of the family in the middle centuries, replaces the often miserable depiction of premodern family relations with a delicately nuanced portrait of a vibrant and loving social group. Mining the records of families' private lives--from diaries and letters to fiction and woodcuts--Ozment shows us a preindustrial family not very different from the later family of high industry that is generally viewed as the precursor to the sentimental nuclear family of today. In "Ancestors," we see the familiar pattern of a domestic wife and working father in a home in which spousal and parental love were amply present: parents cherished their children, wives were helpmeets in providing for the family, and the genders were nearly equal. Contrary to the abstractions of history, parents then--as now--were sensitive to the emotional and psychological needs of their children, treated them with affection, and gave them a secure early life and caring preparation for adulthood. As it recasts familial history, "Ancestors" resonates beyond its time, revealing how much the story of the premodern family has to say to a modern society that finds itself in the throes of a family crisis.

Argula von Grumbach, geb. von Stauff, war die erste Reformatorin in Europa, ihrer Zeit weit voraus. Sie wuchs in einem intellektuell offenen, hochadeligen Haushalt auf. Ihre „Universität“ war der Münchener Hof. Als Mutter von vier Kindern sah sie entsetzt zu, als 1523 der Student Arsacius Seehofer von den Ingolstädter Theologen gezwungen wurde, seinen evangelischen Glauben öffentlich zu leugnen. In bisher unerhörter Weise forderte sie die Theologen auf, mit ihr, einer Laiin, öffentlich zu debattieren, um ihr intolerantes Benehmen biblisch zu rechtfertigen. Dieser sensationelle Brief wurde innerhalb eines Jahres 16-mal gedruckt. Es folgten sieben andere Flugschriften. Dafür wurde Argula von Grumbach gehasst, aber auch gefeiert – unter anderen von Martin Luther, mit dem sie langjährig korrespondierte. Sie erschien auf den Reichstagen in Nürnberg und Augsburg, wo sie die protestantischen Fürsten ermahnte, standhaft zu bleiben. Sie etablierte ein Netzwerk an Unterstützern und gründete später evangelische Gemeinden in Franken. Couragiert im Denken und Handeln war sie sprachlich, geistlich und politisch ein Mensch für alle Zeiten.
