Theological Perspectives
of the Reformation

Advanced Resources

Comparative Chronology This feature is one of the most helpful aspects of the site. It allows you to compare the chronologies of different movements and people. If you would like to compare the events of the Magisterial Reformation with the English Reformation, here's your chance. If you would like to compare the life of Balthasar Hübmaier with the life of Teresa of Avila, you can do that as well!
Timerange Chronology This component allows you to view all of the events on the timetable by year or you can even view events from any time range. For example, you can view all events in 1521 or events that occur from 1520 to 1530 if you wish.
Comparative Theology This table allows you to compare the views of the reformers on such topics as the Eucharist, baptism, justification, the church, and the relationship between the church and the state.
Quizzes Would you like to check your knowledge of the Reformation? Be careful. These quizzes are designed to determine whether you are a master theologian or a heathen!
