Who was Zwingli? (You will find more information in Chapter 4). 2. What constituted radicalism in the early years of the Reformation? Who was radical? Who was not?
Chapter 3: New Heaven: New Earth, 3. MacCulloch quotes Owen Chadwick: "At the beginning of the sixteenth century everyone that mattered in the Western Church was crying out for reformation" (153). MacCulloch agrees with this. Did Chadwick's assertion ring true when you read Chapters 1 and 2? 4. In what way was the Reformation carnivalesque in the earliest phase of its development?
Wooing the Magistrate, Identify: cuius regio, eius religio; Schleitheim Confession (1527); Swiss Brethren; Marburg Colloquy (1529); Diet of Augsburg (1530); Augsburg Confession (1530); Schmalkaldic League, Reformed Protestantism, Christian Civic Union, synodical system of church government Why did Romans 13: 1-7 play an important role in the history of the relationship between Christianity and government?
Wooing the Magistrate, 1. What is the connection between the Reformation and the German Peasants' War? 2. Who were the first princes to support the Reformation? 3. How and why did Anabaptism deny "the concept of Christendom"(169)? Read Article 4 of the Schleitheim Confession. How does this contribute to your knowledge of Anabaptism? 4. MacCulloch mentions “a process of definition and separation, capped by three momentous failures” (172). Why were the Marburg Colloquy, the Diet of Augsburg, and the events of 1531 in Switzerland failures?
