Summary:
To mark the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation this opulent volume invites the reader to embark on a journey through the world and across a period of time that extends across five centuries and four continents. It describes in detail the global diversity and history of the effects, and also the conflict potential, of Protestantism between the cultures. Which traces has Protestantism left in its contact with other denominations, religions and lifestyles? How did it change through these encounters? And not least: how did people adopt the Protestant doctrine; how did they modify it and live by it? On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 this lavishly illustrated volume demonstrates the diversity and history of the effects, and also the conflict potential of Protestantism. It tells a global history of effect and counter-effect which began in around 1500 and extends into the present day, shown by the examples of Europe, Germany and Sweden, the United States, South Korea and Tanzania. Exhibition: Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, Germany (12.04.2017-05.11.2017).
