Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In considering the evolution, institutions, theological underpinnings and distinctive ecclesiology of Lutheran worship, Robert Kolb has assembled a distinguished group of writers, many who here reflect on their own detailed archival research. […] This is a fine and well-conceived volume.”
Andrew Pettegree, University of St Andrews. In: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 62, No. 1 (2011), pp. 175-177.

"A must-have for research libraries, a truly significant contribution to the study of the age of confessionalization".
Mary Elizabeth Anderson, Saint Olaf College. In: The Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. 41, No. 3 (Fall 2010), pp. 835-837.

"This is an excellent collection of essays. It provides a positive and compelling view of later Lutheranism as a cultural force. As well as offering a valuable overview of the theological life of the period, it moves effectively [...] beyond the level of the theological elite, and encourages us to rethink many assumptions about Lutheranism after Luther's death".
Bridget Heal, University of St Andrews. In: Church History and Religious Culture, Vol. 90, No. 2-3 (2010), pp. 432-434.

"Alles in allem wird man durch diesen Sammelband also hervorragend über Quellen und Forschungsstand informiert ..."
Markus Friedrich, Frankfurt a. M., in Francia-Recensio 2011/2

"This is a very timely and useful volume."
R. Emmet McLaughlin, Renaissance Quarterly (2008) 590-592.
