Ideas of religious reform as well as formation and institutional organization of confessional churches from the beginning of the 16th century had wide-ranging consequences in shaping political and social structures within the early modern modernization process. Besides its formative, macro-historical function, derived in line with political-theoretical maxim religio vinculum societatis, Reformation determined profoundly the construction of ethical, political and legal norms, ethnic, confessional and gender identities and cultures, individual and socio-psychological profiles as well as patterns and models of everyday practices.
Moreover, though Reformation was a universal religious and historical phenomenon, its local and regional effects and outcomes were manifold, imposing two important research challenges - global diffusion of Reformation ideas and a specific morphology of its practical realizations in various micro-historical conditions and contexts.
Departing from these presumptions, organizers of the International conference Reformation in Croatian Lands: Research Results, Challenges, Perspectives aim to question specific features and modalities of transfer, modification and appropriation of Reformation ideas and teachings from a trans-disciplinary perspective as well as organization and institutional development of Reformation movement in Croatian and neighboring lands, with necessary European contextualization.
