Bendt Fabricius
My stay in Rome will focus on finishing a book in which I wish to make a retelling of the Danish Reformation history. I should like to correct the current retelling of the Reformation made by historians promoting its alleged goods. More sources do tell some other stories that have to be included in the sometimes glossy storytelling in favor of the lutheran faith, stories critizising some of the ways in which the lutheran faith has been implemented in Denmark. In my effort to bring forth a more complete retelling I integrate primary sources from the Vatican describing the religious situation in Denmark during the Counter-Reformation.
