Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Pettegree's introductory essay sets up an insightful analytical framework for exploring the question of why Luther's initial call for reformation failed to sustain his own model for, and leadership of, the Reformation in lands outside the heart of the German empire." Religious Studies Review

"Anyone wishing to know how the Protestant Reformation spread throughout Western Europe in the sixteenth century can now turn to a single volume. The Early Reformation in Europe was obviously well planned and carefully edited, for it succeeds in providing a concise and nearly encyclopedic survey of the course of the Reformation on a regional basis....This should prove to be a most useful book, not just for teaching, but also for preliminary research, especially in the less-familiar areas." Carlos Eire, Church History
