Personal profile

Research Interests

 

Scott Dixon was educated at the University of St. Andrews and the University of Cambridge, where he completed a PhD under the supervision of R.W. Scribner. He has been the recipient of research awards from the British Academy and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and has spent time as a Humboldt Senior Research Fellow in Wolfenbüttel, Berlin, and Vienna, where he was also a visiting lecturer. In 2012 he was elected an Affiliated Member for the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (Zentrum für Mittelalter- und Frühneuzeitstudien) at the University of Göttingen, Germany.

 

Dr Dixon's main research examines the development of confessional identity in early modern Europe, especially in Germany, and the history and the historiography of Protestantism. His books include a transatlantic study of the rise of Protestants in Europe and America entitled Protestants: A History from Wittenberg to Pennsylvania, 1517-1740 (2010) and a study of Reformation historiography entitled Contesting the Reformation (2012), both of which are published by Wiley-Blackwell. He has most recently completed a volume on early modern Christianity for the I.B. Tauris History of the Christian Church series entitled The Church in the Early Modern Age (2016). At present he is preparing a book entitled Puritans and Pietists: Post-Reformation Protestantism, co-editing a volume of contributions on the historiography of early modern Europe, and researching a cultural and intellectual study of the forest in early modern Germany.

 

Together with Professor Mark Greengrass, Dr Dixon has also co-authored an interactive teaching module entitled The Protestant Reformation: Religious Change and the People of Sixteenth Century Europe. Students may access this module at the following link:
