The Centre provides an interdisciplinary exploration of the upheavals and reconfigurations of the period before and after the Reformation, from a social, cultural, and artistic as well as a theological perspective. Staff research interests range from international Calvinism, the beginnings of the English Reformation, the history of spirituality with emphasis on the north-east of Scotland, a literary history of the Reformation in English drama and poetry, the relationship between Irish and Scottish Presbyterians in the Restoration era, the religious tensions in Scotland during the Civil War, to religious networks in central Europe, particularly Germany and Poland-Lithunania.
