The second wind of Protestant religious reform blew across the Continent from Geneva to France, the Netherlands, the British Isles, Germany, and to central and eastern Europe. Calvinism proved to be an international form of Protestantism, and unlike Lutheranism its origins were not so deeply rooted within a single social and cultural milieu to confine its later expansion. This book examines Reformed religion in Hungary and Transylvania to reveal important comparisons and contrasts with the priorities and activities of other Reformed churches across the Continent. Calvinism also played a crucial role in shaping Hungarian politics and society during the early modern period, and this chapter also discusses Calvinism's impact upon Hungary and Transylvania from a variety of perspectives. The chapters in this book deal with the Hungarian reformation, Hungary's Reformed clergy, educational reform in Hungary, constitutional toleration and confessional rivalry, Hungarian puritans and Presbyterians, and the relationship between sovereign princes, noble patrons, and clergy.

Keywords:   Calvinism, Hungary, Transylvania, Reformed religion, Reformed churches, Hungarian politics, Hungarian society, clergy, educational reform, confessional rivalry
