The German Nation in the Writings of the Humanists, Luther, and the Early Lutherans

Posted By Kristin M. Bezio, Wednesday, May 17, 2017

This panel deals with the idea of the German nation and the Holy Roman Empire in the works of the humanists (particularly German), Martin Luther, and the Lutherans (including Ulrich von Hutten and Melanchthon). This session discusses the concept of the nation in both Catholic and Lutheran (and sympathizers) authors, and how they attempted to reconcile the nation with the Holy Roman Empire. Papers may focus on any aspect of nation, patriotism, or nationalism in the writings of humanists and reformers during 1480-1560.

Please email proposals (150-word abstracts and 300-word CVs) to Thomas Renna at on or before May 30th.
