Overview

This book presents a wide range of documents, some from unpublished manuscripts, relating to the Continental Reformation. Rather than focusing purely on leading reformers and their writings, this collection places the ideas and the figures themselves within the broader context of early modern society. By relying heavily on eye-witness accounts, the texts present the Reformation as a vibrant and violent movement shattering late medieval Christendom. The documents provide the reader with a window into the maelstrom of religious change and the host of complex issues (political, socio-economic, gender) swept along in its wake.
