Australasian Charismatic Movements and the “New Reformation of the 20th Century?”
AbstractThere have been many attempts to define the charismatic movement of the 20th century. Rather than following the general literature on the charismatic movement (which tends to coopt the CRM into pre-existing categories, as data for larger theoretical interests) this paper tests a proposal which charismatics often make about themselves, ie. that they are the "new reformation of the 20th century". Comparing elements of the Reformation of the 16th Century to that of the 20th century raises interesting issues as to interpretation, bias in historical accounts, and the politics of self-representation.
