The idea of two reformations instead just one reformation

+0
−2

Were there historians of Christianity that claimed a similar claim to that there were actually two reformations instead just one?

I understand that both social movements operated in pretty much the same eras in Europe (excluding other similar possible movements before them) so both of them could be grasped as reform makers.

The modern Unitarian branch of Christendom began within a few decades of the Protestant Reformation, so it wouldn't make much sense to consider it a whole separate reformation event. What value do you see in such a suggestion? curiousdannii‭ 3 months ago

Did you mean few decades before or few decades after? I don't have an opinion about this, I want to know if experts on the subject think it is a correct distinction and why, so according to your phrasing I don't see a value besides that it might be an elegant approach to arrange data or to describe history.

Some quick research with Wikipedia indicates that the 16th century Unitarianism was a schism from Protestantism; if it warrants being considered a separate reformation then it's not clear that Lutheranism and Calvinism should be placed under the same umbrella as each other.
