Short Papers, Panels, and General Attendance
The conference is open to individual short paper presentations (20-minute presentations) and to thematic sessions of two or three short papers. While we encourage papers on the conference theme, papers can also focus on all disciplines related to Early Modern Christianity, ca. 1450-1650, such as philosophy, law, history, theology, etc., independent of the theme of the plenary papers.

Short paper proposals are welcome via the registration form before March 1, 2019. It is also possible to attend the conference without giving a paper.

Short Paper Submission
Short paper submissions are welcome before March 1, 2019 via the online registration form.

Registration becomes effective on receipt of payment of the registration fee. Registration closes on May 14, 2019.

The language of the conference is English, but papers in French and German will be welcomed. Presenters who prefer to give their paper in French or German are invited to provide the audience with an English summary of about 150-200 words.

Conference Proceedings
The conference volume will be published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht in the series Refo500 Academic Studies (R5AS) and will contain all the plenary papers and a selection of short papers. Another publication venue is the Journal of Early Modern Christianity (JEMC).

Manuscripts for the conference volume can be submitted to the editors (contact info will follow). All other manuscripts can be submitted to Tarald Rasmussen.
