Chapter Summary

Early modern Roman Catholics did not have many changes to adjust to as the Church reformed itself during the latter sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Lutherans and Calvinists experienced radical alteration of their traditional liturgical year, religious services, and social patterns; they knew they were witnessing a Reformation. Although historians of the Reformation era now properly include parallel revisions in the Catholic sphere as fully part of the religious reform movement of that day and not simply as a reaction against emerging Protestantism, qualitative differences have perhaps not received adequate attention. Historians of modern American Protestantism have to explain the cultural and theological changes that have crept in to render the suffering displayed in The Passion of the Christ attractive to Baptists and denominations akin to them today.

Keywords: Calvinists; Lutherans; Protestantism; reformation; Roman Catholics; theological changes
