Chapter Summary

From the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, Scandinavia and the whole Baltic region were active in economic, political and cultural exchanges with Central Europe. Swedish theologians were responsible for an academic education during the Reformation in the universities in Wittenberg and Rostock. By preference of Swedish and Finnish students in universities of Wittenberg and Rostock during the Reformation, three theologians, Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon and their students David Chytraeus come as teachers and mentors. David Chytraeus' students from the Swedish realm however contributed to confessionalization of state, church and society. The question of whether and to what extent there was a group of students between Luther, Melanchthon and Chytraeus, was the center of the author's remarks. They tried in their ecclesial activity to a Swedish Interim. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: academic education; confessionalization; David Chytraeus; Martin Luther; Philipp Melanchthon; Swedish empire
