The authors of the articles of this interdisciplinary volume devoted to the understanding of the media and the media practice of the Reformation of the 16th Century. On the basis of the consensus that the success of the Reformation significantly related to her character as a media event, we will discuss how innovative the mediumship of the Reformation in relation to the late Middle Ages, the Renaissance humanism and within the general cultural media change the 15th Century. Can one speak of a reformatory "media revolution", which was connected with a new understanding of grace immediacy and healing presence?
