Albert Hardenberg als Theologe deals with the significant role of the Dutch reformer Albert Hardenberg (ca. 1510-1574) in the process of reformed confessionalization in northern Germany, particularly in Bremen. Drawing upon a great many new sources, including more that 50 of Hardenberg's treatises and 340 letters, this volume presents both his biography and his theological position. Close scrutiny of his doctrinal relations with the Modern Devotion, Renaissance humanism and the Lutheran, Zwinglian and Reformed reformations throws a startling new light upon this scholar, long stereotyped as Crypto-Zwinglian, as well as upon Bucer, Melanchthon, Brenz, à Lasco, Bullinger, Erasmus and Calvin. This book provides new insight into the spread of reformed ideas to Cologne, Lower Saxony and East-Friesland.

Abstract

Education played a crucial role in the intellectual, socio-political, and religious developments that were part of the confessionalization processes in northwestern Germany. Particularly Bremen with its Gymnasium Illustre (1528-1812) developed into an educational stronghold, notably in theology and law. After Bremen's adoption of the Reformed confession in 1562 and more so under its prolific rectors Matthias Martinius, Ludwig Crocius, and Gerhard Meier in the seventeenth century, the Academy supplied hundreds of theologians and clergymen to Reformed churches and institutions throughout Europe. Molded by reform humanists of the Strasbourg and Zurich stamp, the Reformed character of the Gymnasium never lost its moderate, irenic bias. With this northern German flavor of the Reformed confession, the polychromy of Protestantism as well as of confessionalism in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe was enriched with yet another nuance.
