From April 9-11, 2024, the Society for Reformation Studies invited scholars to Cambridge, UK, to meet and discuss Reformation research. This year’s theme was networks and networking in the Reformation. In cooperation with the SRS, the Wittenberg Center for Reformation Studies supported graduate students and early career researchers to travel to Cambridge and present their findings.

Several participants from past WCRS courses met in Cambridge and contributed to the conference: Dr. Colin Donnelly presented his research on the evangelical circle in Heinrician Cambridge, Dr. Andreas Bergman analyzed the use of philosophical arguments in the thought of the Lutheran theologian Martin Chemnitz, and Jamin Eben presented Foxe’s Book of Martyrs as a promoter of Protestant piety. WCRS Director Andreas Stegmann compared the two versions of the martyr account by leading English evangelical Robert Barnes, arguing that the German translation published by Martin Luther in Wittenberg deserves more scholarly attention.
