This volume deals with a territory outside of the Holy Roman Empire. Siebenbürgen (Transylvania) was an exception with its four recognized religious confessions cooperating with further confessions which were tolerated. The »ius reformandi« lay in the hands of the communities. The German-speaking minority in Siebenbürgen established its own regional churches in the 16th century. This edition covers pivotal texts which deal with their history of the Reformation.
This volume deals with a territory outside of the Holy Roman Empire. Siebenbürgen (Transylvania) was an exception with its four recognized religious confessions cooperating with further confessions which were tolerated. The »ius reformandi« lay in the hands of the communities. The framework for this was established by parliamentary decisions, which are the focal point of the first part of this volume on Siebenbürgen in general. The German-speaking minority in Siebenbürgen has always been at the center of scholarly attention. For this minority had an exempt jurisdiction and established its own regional churches in the 16th century. This edition covers pivotal texts which deal with their history of the Reformation such as the 1543 Reformation Pamphlet (Reformationsbüchlein) and the 1547 church ordinances for all Germans in Siebenbürgen as well as 80 further texts on church orders written by secular authorities and religious administrative institutions.
