Reformation theology often defined itself in sharp and outspoken opposition to medieval theology, especially to the traditions of scholastic theology. In Protestant theology, the Reformation has also on a more general basis frequently been defined in opposition to medieval tradition, both with regard to organization, ritual practice and piety. However, this way of interpretation in terms of sharp oppositions has been challenged and strongly modified during the last decades.
