Worms, Colloquy of.

Meeting held November 1540 and January 1541 to promote understanding between RC and Luth. theologians. There were 11 men on RC side, with Granvella as representative of Charles* V and the legate L. Campeggio* as chief spokesman, while Melanchthon* was leader of Luths.. But a few days after the real opening, when a discussion between J. Eck* and Melanchthon was under way, the colloquy was adjourned to the Regensburg* Conf. without having accomplished anything. See also Grynäus, 1.
