Welcome to the project A Disregarded Past - Medieval Scholasticism and Reformed Thought. This project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) for a duration of four years (August 2020 to July 2024), and is hosted by the Institut d'histoire de la Réformation. It intends to study the importance of medieval scholasticism for Reformed thought, a possible source of influence neglected both by early Reformed theologians and in modern research. Following on geographical lines the transmission of ideas from the Late Middle Ages to the Reformed Tradition, the project focuses on the Swiss area, on the Palatinate, on Scotland and on France. It pays particular attention to the dissemination of Scotist thought, given that the presence of Scotism in Reformed doctrine has often been suggested, but never systematically investigated.

The Library of Leyden (unknown artist, ca. 1620):
Si tibi Doctorum non semper copia presto est, Horum supplebit Bibliotheca vices. Nec quenquam puerum sinet esse, ab origine mundi Res gestas, artes, tempora, iura, docens.
