This year is the commemoration of the European Reformation, which started in 1517 in Wittenberg. Although Luther’s criticism of the Church of Rome also resonated in the Low Countries, the catholic way of worship was initially maintained by the secular governing powers. Only during the Revolt did things change in favor of the reformed church. It is interesting to ponder the positions and reactions of the clergy in this turbulent century. For the present-day Netherlands this has only been thoroughly mapped and researched for the pastors of the far north (by Otto Roemeling) and in Noord-Brabant (by Arnoud-Jan Bijsterveld). Now, at the Vrije Universiteit a data file of priests has been compiled. Teachers and students will present the material and make it digitally accessible, while also allowing various experts to speak about the current state of the historiography and the directions in which to take new research projects.
