Overview

The Literary Culture of the Reformation: Grammar and Grace

To examine the Reformation in writing and the writing of the Reformation is to uncover an unfamiliar archaeology of religion: an underground network of text and commentary, of translation and controversy. In this study, Brian Cummings not only provides a new visibility to the complex cultural processes of writing in England and the Continent, he also underlines the significance of the neglected hinterland of grammar during this turbulent period.
