The contributions in this volume deal with influences of Reformators and of the Reformation as a whole on the contemporary and following intellectual-cultural and especially pedagogical developments in selected countries in Central and Eastern Europe. The issues of which way pedagogical ideas of the Reformation spread internationally are questioned and problematised, and the people who played a role in this process are addressed. It also investigates which Protestant educational institutions, foundations, etc. exist today, and whether lines of tradition go back to the origins, or were re-animated in the last years. Additionally, it deals with aspects of the reception of Luther and Melanchthon in international pedagogical historiography. The contributions of the 30 authors from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Russia, Hungary, and Germany are connected to the discussion of the relationship of tradition and innovation in times of social upheaval.
