Overview

In recent years, new approaches to the history of the Reformation of the Church have radically altered our understanding of that event within its broadest social and cultural context. In this concise study, R. W. Scribner provides a synthesis of the main research, with special emphasis on the German Reformation, and presents his own interpretation of the period. The second edition of this successful text now includes a new Introduction, a supplementary chapter and a supplementary bibliography by C. Scott Dixon.
