Reformation before the Reformation: theological speculation, political options and social dynamics in Central Eastern Europe
Evolutions that have led to the destruction of the unity of the Western Christian world and the institutionalization of Protestant theological options are considered a turning point in universal history. The historical writing continues to generate vivid debates about their significance and impact on long-lasting development of civilization, and dialogue with all social sciences interested in the same theme and theological approaches determines the circulation of new concepts or the redefinition of those already in the historian’s workshop. The history of the Reformation genesis coincides with the history of states, communities, and personalities of Central Eastern Europe, and the knowledge of these aspects implies deepening the importance of the Hussite revolution and the manner in which the Catholic and Orthodox communities have received the innovations brought by the movement initiated in the universities of Prague.
