Bouwen aan de fundamenten. Hoe een protestants boekje bijdraagt aan de katholieke identiteit in de tijd van de reformatie
MetadataShow full item record
The years following the Reformation, Catholics in the Netherlands were severly suppressed. Rebuilding the Church and its congregations required outspoken priests, not hesitant to argue about their beliefs. A Catholic priest wrote a small book containing about fifty propositions of the Catholic beliefs. Quckly growing popular, the book triggerd a reply from the Protestants and so an argument started, surfacing in consecutive prints of both books. The way both the Catholic and the Protestant argued can be seen as a reflection of their respective social statuses. Also an adaptation of the Protestant way of arguing can be seen in the Catholic part of the argument.
