Translated title of the contribution: A Sacred Landscape as Readable Text: The Reformation of the Veluwe in the Sixteenth Century

Abstract

Based on an analyses of topografic maps and various material dealing with liturgical rituals, this article examines to what extend the ecclesiastical reformation during the sixteenth century had an impact on the religious life within local christian communites. It is argued that the Reformation was primarily a reformation of liturgical rituals. Due to the political transition in Guelders, reformed churchleaders and secular authorities took control of liturgical 'centres' (parish churches), but were not able to take control of liturgical 'outlying areas' (sacred landscapes). Therefore, laypeople could still take control of their environments in a liturgical way.
