The 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 focuses the mind on the history and significance of Protestant forms of Christianity. It also prompts the question of how the Reformation has been commemorated on past anniversary occasions. Remembering the Reformation: An Inquiry into the Meanings of Protestantism explores various meanings attributed to Protestantism by examining past Reformation commemorations, focusing principally on Germany, the cradle of the Reformation.
