Summary
Among the forces that shaped European culture Calvinism played a modest but crucial role. Despite its recent history of religious fragmentation and secularization, Europe somehow continues to be stamped by a pervasive Calvinist ethos. Its specific character, however, is difficult to pin down. In this volume, many of the traditional scholarly conundrums here are revisited. For example, how has the ethos of Calvinism, or more broadly the Reformed tradition, affected economic thinking and practice, the development of the sciences, views on religious toleration, or the constitution of European polities? In general, what kind of transformations did Calvinism’s distinct spirituality bring about? Such questions demand painstaking and detailed scholarly work, a fine sample of which is published in this volume.0
