Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The paper is based upon on the Danish Reformation in the 16th Century. We have focused on the literary debate on the Church and the contemporary understanding of the sacraments. The paper has character of a textanalysis but is also historically conditioned, as we elucidate the societal structure in which the literary debate unfolds. The revolt against the Catholic Church and the budding Protestantism was based on of historical conditions such as the secular and ecclesiastical division of power, the development of the printing press, various .humanistic currents etc. The written sources that form the basis of the text analysis are written by Peder Laurentsen (Malmøbogen) and Poul Helgesens (Svar på Malmøbogen). We argue for the use of the sacraments for Protestant and Catholic denominations. Our description of the historical conditions as for example the power structure and the development of the printing press define the boundries for an understanding of our "argumentative text".
