Diet (convention; assembly; Fürstentag) at Naumburg, Ger., 1561, at which Luth. princes and theols, reaffirmed the AC, 1531 ed. Dissension among Luths. after P. Melanchthon's* death and the scheduled reopening of the Council of Trent* had made reunification of Luths. desirable. But some did not sign the statement drawn up at Naumburg on grounds that certain heresies were not mentioned and condemned and that disputed arts. had not been directly dealt with. The diet declined an invitation to participate in the Council of Trent (because the invitation addressed the princes as sons of the pope) and expressed desire for a nat. Ger. diet with vote as well as voice for the Ger. princes. See also Lutheran Confessions, C 1.
