Chapter Summary

The central points of interest and the conceptualisations of the subject 'Reformation' can clearly be categorised by decades: the 1970s (1), the 1980s (2), and the 1990s (3), all crucially influenced by international political circumstances, which were reflected and interpreted in the humanities and social sciences. Kathy Brady is always implied when Tom Brady's works, accomplishments, innovations, interpretations, and controversies are mentioned in this chapter. Tom Brady's work until now has been centred on the history of the reformation, and its inner structure is congruent with the mentioned decades. This chapter describes his historical-theoretical point of orientation as one based on political intention. The Marxist interpretation was seen as posing a threat to states shaped by a civil society that had ultimately derived from the Reformation. The history of the reformation in the 1970s reflects the Cold War, the conflict between liberal democracies and communist states, and for good reason.

Keywords: civil society; Cold War; historical processes; Kathy Brady; liberal democracies; political structure; reformation; Tom Brady
