The significance of printing for the history of the Reformation is widely recognized. Basel was one of the most important places for printing in all of Europe. However the city on the Upper Rhine was also important during the Reformation as a meeting place and a place of refuge as well as a place where wide correspondence networks originated. This conference volume documents the history of the intellectual space in the early 16th century. This history includes essays about Erasmus and his reception, about the first edited volume with Luther’s works, about Bucer and Oecolampadius, Beatus Rhenanus and Oswald Myconius, about Anabaptists, Italian non-conformists and Basel’s impact on England and Hungary.
