Editorial Reviews

Combining new with previously published material, 14 essays explore the interplay between religion and politics in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, when the churches were solidifying into denominations and the states were becoming absolutist. Nishan (East Carolina U.) examines such aspects as Lutheran and Reformed views of Martin Luther in Brandenburg's Second Reformation, the exorcism controversy and baptism in the late Reformation, confessionalism and absolutism in Brandenburg, Irenicism and the beginnings of official religious toleration in Brandenburg-Prussia, and reformed Irenicism and the Leipzig Colloquy of 1631.
