About the Authors
  • This collection of essays by prominent historians of the Reformation explores the experience of religious reform in 'national context', discussing similarities and differences between the reform movements in a dozen different countries of sixteenth-century Europe. Each author provides an interpretative essay emphasising local peculiarities and national variants on the broader theme of the Reformation as a European phenomenon. The individual essays thus emphasise the local preconditions and limitations which encountered the Reformation as it spread from Germany into most of the countries of western and central Europe. Together they present a picture of the many-sided nature of the Reformation as it grew up in each 'national context', both in countries where the Reformation was strikingly successful and where it failed to make an impact.

    • A further volume in the sequence of pioneering studies edited by Porter and Teich, now joined by the noted Reformation scholar Bob Scribner
    • The first volume to discuss the Reformation by making comparisons between its progress or lack of it in various European countries
    • Contains essays written by some of the leading Reformation scholars of the day
