About the Authors
  • Christians are supposed to love their neighbors, including their enemies. This is never easy. When feud and honor are common realities, it is even harder than usual. This book sketches the history of human (not political) peace-making in four countries of western Europe (Italy, France, Germany, and England) between the Reformation and the eighteenth century, and in their various religious institutions. The stories are variations on a theme: a "moral tradition" finding its way between the Scylla of reforming zeal and the Charybdis of civil society.

    • A brilliant general account of human relations in the centuries of upheaval following the Reformation
    • Offers a totally original general statement about the nature of post-Reformation history, in giving new historical insight into basic human characteristics
    • Author is one of the most successful of senior academic authors: his recent book on Giordano Bruno brought life to an 'unknown' figure and attracted even a general 'crime' readership

    "Bossy's lectures on the moral tradition are well worth reading because of the ideas they provoke about the analysis and impact of peace in post-Reformation Europe." Renaissance Quarterly
