The Reformation Studies Institute in the School of History is pleased to announce that it will host two visiting Cameron Fellows during 2014-15.
In the Michaelmas semester Professor Jeff Jaynes of the Methodist Theological School in Ohio will undertake work on a study entitled ‘From Luther to Lutheranism: Architects of Church Order in sixteenth-century North Germany’, which analyses the authors of a series of church orders from the 1520s to circa 1580 to explore territorial reformations in Northern Germany.
In Candlemas, Professor Howard Louthan of the University of Florida, author of The Quest for Compromise (Cambridge, 1997) and Converting Bohemia (Cambridge, 2009), will work on a project entitled ‘Poles apart? From humanism to heresy in Reformation Europe’. This study of sixteenth-century Polish religious history will consider the variously intersecting and diverging careers of Johannes a Lasco, Stanislaus Hosius, and Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski (Frycz) to analyze the complexities of Reformation in Central Europe.
The Cameron Faculty Fellowship is named in memory of James K. Cameron, distinguished professor of ecclesiastical history at the University of St Andrews. A long term supporter and friend of the Institute and historical and theological studies at St Andrews, he delighted in the exchange of ideas between members of the University and the wider scholarly community.
