The Reformation transformed the clergy from a socially heterogeneous order with its own privileges and range of responsibilities to a more homogenous social group charged specifically with the tasks of preaching and pastoral care. Changes to university education caused by both humanism and the Reformation contributed to the formation of distinct generations of Protestant clergy. Because of their relative homogeneity, Basel’s pastors make a suitable case study to illustrate the impact of changes in education on their outlook and ministry.
