Abstrakt


Artykuł proponuje nową próbę oceny nowożytnego irenizmu. Irenizm i ekumenizm, dawniej stanowiące istotne obszary zainteresowań badaczy dziejów reformacji, zostały z czasem zepchnięte na margines. Wykazuję, że zmiana ta jest częścią szerszego zjawiska w obrębie badań nad historią religii, oddalających się coraz bardziej od ujęć metodologicznych osadzonych w antropologii. W odpowiedzi artykuł niniejszy oferuje przegląd wiadomości o irenizmie epoki nowożytnej i stawia nowe pytania, a wszystko to dla lepszego zrozumienia dynamiki tych znaczących przemian.

 

The article offers a reassessment of early modern irenicism. Irenicism and ecumenism, which were once significant areas of study for Reformation specialists, have drifted to the scholarly margins. I argue that this shift is part of a broader phenomenon connected to the study of religion that draws increasingly more from anthropologically based methodologies. In response, the article provides an overview of irenicism in the early modern world and proposes a new set of questions to help us better understand this important dynamic today.
