Founded in 1947, the Society for Reformation Research (SRR) is a North-American scholarly organization with a long and distinguished record of promoting research, writing, and dialogue on all aspects related to the Protestant and Catholic Reformations and other aspects of religious life in the early modern era. The SRR currently sponsors a variety of sessions each year at both the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference and the International Congress on Medieval Studies. Together with the Verein für Reformationsgeschichte, the SRR sponsors the Archive for Reformation History, a long-established and lively journal dedicated to the study of religion and society in the early modern era.
The Archiv für Reformationsgeschichte/Archive for Reformation History is an international journal which publishes articles relating to aspects of early modern European religious life and thought that touch on the Reformation and Catholic/Counter Reformation movements. The journal is also concerned with the extension of European theology and practice into the extra-European world. Its chronological range is approximately 1450-1650. The Archive for Reformation History is published under the auspices of the Verein für Reformationsgeschichte and the Society for Reformation Research. It appears annually in one volume of articles approximately 320 pages in length and a supplementary volume, Literaturbericht/Literature Review, approximately 160 pages in length, which consists of brief reviews of a large number of books and articles on aspects of early modern religion and society that appeared in time to be considered. The American editors of the Archive are Brad Gregory and Randall Zachman, and the journal is housed at the University of Notre Dame.
