Summary Situated at the crossroads of important trade routes, the bustling seaports of the Low Countries not only traded cargoes of grain and timber, silk and spices, woollen cloth and splendidly executed altarpieces, but also manuscripts and books, news, information, ideas and gossip. Thus the Netherlands were touched by the evangelical Reformation movement at an early stage and played an increasingly important role as a crossroads for religious and philosophical ideas, serving as an intermediary between different parts of the world. The third volume of Intersections is devoted to this aspect of the 'intertraffic of the mind.' Thirteen authors from various disciplines address issues such as: How 'open' were the various religious groups to new points of view and how did they react to each other's opinion? How did they get familiar with new insights and different attitudes, and what was the role of trade and traffic in spreading them? How important was the part played by the various church and civil authorities, on the different levels of local, regional and national government?With contributions by Henk van Nierop, Paul Arblaster, Guido Marnef, Ralph Dekoninck, Jeanine De Landtsheer, Jason Harris, Mia M. Mochizuki, Christine Kooi, Charles H. Parker, Fred Van Lieburg, P.J. Schuffel, Pieta van Beek, J.J.V.M. de Vet and Agnhs Guiderdoni-Brusli.
