Chapter Summary

Frühe Neuzeit Interdisziplinär's (FNI's) first conference in 1995 established that early modern German studies could benefit from a project that brought together historians, art historians, and specialists in literature, music and other fields, a conclusion only reinforced by the three subsequent conferences in 1998, 2001 and 2005. The study of orthodoxies and heterodoxies requires people to examine the limits that such categories face, either as dimensions of experience for those in the early modern German lands, or as analytical categories for those who study them. Hildegard Elisabeth Keller gives special attention to Bullinger's Anklag und ernstliches ermanen Gottes Allmaechtigen. In this work, Bullinger transformed the Old Testament covenant between God and his chosen people, bringing it forward to represent the relationship between God and his special people in the Swiss Confederation. In this essay, the author encounters the orthodox and heterodox not in the religious but in the political sphere.
