  Basel and Its Reformed Church

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents Basel’s late medieval church and then describes the dramatic changes brought to the church and its clergy by the Reformation and by the long-term political and religious developments in Basel and in Switzerland as a whole over the 16th and early 17th centuries. It also gives a statistical overview of the 254 men who served Basel’s church during this time, tentatively identifying the four generations of pastors who entered the ministry from 1529 to 1550, from 1550 to 1579, from 1580 to 1610, and from 1610 to 1629.
