Teaching the Reformation

This chapter surveys Basel’s official theology established in the decade after the Reformation, as embodied in the Basel Confession of 1534, the catechism written by Johannes Oecolampadius and modified by Oswald Myconius, and the new Reformed liturgies. All of these proclaimed a general evangelical faith stressing the authority of Scripture alone, the deliberate rejection of Catholic beliefs and practices, and emphasis on high standards of moral behavior. After examining both printed sermons and reports of preaching, it concludes that religious instruction in the three decades was neither systematic nor uniformly imposed on Basel’s subjects.
