|Reformed Theology and History|
Call for Proposals
Despite having been at the forefront of many ecumenical efforts, Reformed Christians have a long internal history of disaffiliation as well as of affiliation. For example, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is currently in the midst of a significant breakaway of congregations. What are the criteria by which the Reformed have divided or united, and how can that history help us understand emerging divisions and affiliations among the Reformed? Proposals are especially encouraged that address the following themes:
This Group seeks to open up the Reformed tradition for critical review and study, focusing on its characteristic themes in theology and historical patterns of polity and practice. Our aim is to present panels and paper sessions that balance historical with theological methods, single figures within larger cultural movements, and core themes with emerging or forgotten elements of Reformed thought and practice. In all of these topics, we hope to demonstrate the vitality, originality, and diversity of Reformed Christianity in its world-wide expression.
