Multiple denominational belonging? Reception and censorship of the Mainz cathedral preacher Johann Wild OFM, 1495–1554
In this project, Markus Müller reconstructs Wild's "irenic" and "Erasmian" theology and examines his censorship and expurgation in France, Spain, and Italy, as well as the positive reception of his works among Catholics and Protestants. Comparing the different perspectives on Wild, the project will provide new insights as to where the lines of demarcation lines of denominational belonging emerged and how they were drawn.
