Hagenau, Conference of

Hagenau, Conference of a theological conference called by the German emperor in 1539 in order to bring about a reunion between Protestants and Roman Catholics. Having originally been convoked to Worms, it was transferred to Hagenau in consequence of an epidemic prevailing in the former city. It lasted from June 12 to July 16, 1540. As it was not deemed safe to send Luther without a special protection, and as Melancthon fell sick during the journey, the Protestants were represented by Brenz, Osiander, Capito, Cruciger, and Myconius; and the Roman Catholics by Eck, Faber, and Cochlaus. The conference led to no definite results. It was agreed that an equal number of representatives, chosen by the two parties, should meet at Worms, and resume the negotiations for a union. — Herzog, 19, 589. (A.J.S.)
