Part Three Of Three Parts

At the beginning of the sixteenth century, a movement began to sweep through Western Europe, shaking the stability of every state and institution in its path: the Reformation. Thrones toppled, new sects arose, and men died for the causes of Martin Luther, John Calvin, and others who sought to wrest control of Christianity from the Roman church. In volume six of his magisterial The Story of Civilization, the great professor Will Durant continues his epic exploration of Western thought. More than a history of religious schism, The Reformation is an engrossing tale of intellectual struggle and achievement at the dawn of the modern era.
