  • Nelson H. Minnich's work has dealt broadly with Christian humanism, the Catholic and Protestant Reformations, and the papacy and general councils of the early modern period, especially the Fifth Lateran Council (1512-17). He is co-editing the proceedings of the international conferences on Lateran V (2016) and that on Luther and the Shaping of the Catholic Tradition (2017) which he co-organized and to which he contributed papers.  He is also editing the Brill Renaissance Papacy, 1400–1600, The Cambridge Companion to the Council of Trent, and co-editing The Cambridge History of Reformation Era Theology, and will write a chapter in each. He is editor of the Catholic Historical Review and member of the Pontifical Committee of Historical Sciences.
