"... we are constantly on the move ...": Reformed refugees of the 16th century as exiles?

Research output: Contribution to JournalReview articleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This article discusses the question of a specific refugee theology among the Reformed which was first introduced by Heiko A. Oberman. In particular, the author analyzes John Calvin’s writings and John Utenhove’s tract Fidelis Narratio in order to throw light on two questions: Which terms did Calvinist refugees use to describe themselves and did they develop a specific identity as exiles? The author argues that the Reformed experience of exile cannot be subsumed under one label, and that there was a wide variety of terms and identities involved.
