As well as its special themes this year, the Society encourages all attenders to offer papers in their chosen area of interest. Research students are particularly invited to share the results of their work with members. The Society is keen to promote Reformation and Renaissance scholarship in all its aspects - theology, spirituality and related disciplines.
The Society sponsors a journal called Reformation & Renaissance Review, published by Sheffield Academic Press. All papers presented at the Society's Conferences are eligible for publication in this Journal, subject to the normal refereeing process.
The cost of full board at Westminster College for Society members will be in the region of 37.00 pounds sterling per person per day. Non-members will pay an additional fee of £35 on top of all Conference costs. The Conference dinner will be in the region of £12 extra for a three-course meal and two glasses of wine. Personal membership of the Society is £5 per annum.
