Overview

For more information including sample entries, full contents listing, and more, visit the Encyclopedia of Protestantism web site.

Routledge is proud to announce the publication of a new major reference work from world-renowned scholar Hans J. Hillerbrand. The Encyclopedia of Protestantism is the definitive reference to the history and beliefs that continue to exert a profound influence on Western thought. Featuring entries written by an international team of specialists and scholars, the encyclopedia traces the course of Protestantism from its beginnings prior to 1517, when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg Cathedral, to the vital and diverse international scene of the present day.

"Edited by a Duke University religious scholar with more than 1,000 articles, this encyclopedia does for Protestantism what the New Catholic Encyclopedia did for Catholicism. Topics include biographies, historical data, and organizations, as well as cultural, social, and religious themes. Controversial topics, such as abortion, creation science, and homosexuality, are treated objectively. Topping it off are a thorough index and appendixes containing historical and contemporary statistical data. Nearly 500 contributors worldwide helped create this comprehensive source."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Both self-identifying Protestant groups and those denominations perceived as Protestant while rejecting the name (e.g., Anglicans) inform the diversity explored here. International in scope and attentive to developmental histories that have varied geographically, this reference work has little competition in terms of authority and range. Nearly 500 contributors provide descriptions and explanations of matters of theology, culture, eminent lives, material artifacts, and comparative religions; the A-to-Z entries range from "Apocalypticism" to "Latin America," "Pilgrim's Progress," and "Women Clergy." Most articles maintain neutral academic language and an evenhanded approach to reporting on formative concerns. The level of syntactical complexity and subject-specific technical sophistication requires users to have some expertise in reading scholarly materials in order to make full use of its rich resources. However, excellent cross references, historic and contemporary statistical appendixes, and an analytical index make this an efficient reference tool. Source notes include classic and newer titles, as well as occasional web sources. This set is current enough to include the continuing controversy surrounding a new Episcopal bishop's homosexuality. Like the New Catholic Encyclopedia (edited by Berard Marthaler) and Mircea Eliade's Encyclopedia of Religion, this work, edited by Hillerbrand (religion, Duke Univ.; ed., The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Reformation), is an excellent resource to engage in the exploration of humanities, policy issues, and concerns beyond the specifically religious while also providing deep analyses of theological matters.-Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
