Although printing was a German invention, many of the more important late fifteenth-century presses were situated in northern Italy. 34 40 The Intellectual Context Characteristic Features of Northern European Humanism In dealing with the question of the intellectual origins of the European Reformation, we are primarily concerned with the characteristic ideals, methods, and presuppositions of northern European humanism. Broadly speaking, three quite distinct, although related, such characteristics may be identified.

The Shape of Late Medieval Religious Thought 17 VI failed to press for the convening of diocesan and provincial synods in northern Europe during the years when the possibility of suppressing the new movements was greatest (1522–3). The factors leading to the erosion of such centralized power as had previously existed at this crucial period in history are not fully understood; however, the consequences of this erosion of power are all too obvious, in that the new reforming movements were allowed to develop with minimal hindrance.

The polemical intentions of the thesis of the “Forerunner,” as stated in its original form, make it unsuitable for the purposes of this study. It will, however, be clear that this does not call into question, still less invalidate, the basic notion of a degree of fundamental theological continuity between the Reformation and the late medieval period: it simply means that this thesis cannot be investigated on the basis of such questionable sixteenth-century presuppositions. In particular, it is no longer possible to overlook the enormously significant question of the intellectual origins of the Reformed church, which was generally overlooked on account of the polemical intentions of both the critics and defenders of early Lutheranism.
