Item description for The German Reformation: The Essential Readings (Blackwell Essential Readings in History) by Dixon...
In recent years historians have changed our understanding of the Continental Reformation movement. The religious developments of the 16th century are no longer viewed in isolation or seen as sharp breaks in church doctrine and state policy. Instead, modern historiography tends to picture the Reformation as an event which reached into all corners of society and slowly worked to transform the course of European history. This collection comprises 13 essays, written by the scholars who have helped bring about this shift in understanding. The text illustrates how the movement was bound and shaped by the society in which it was broadcast, how the reformers interacted with the trends and tensions of the period, as well as how the forces of religious change came to influence European culture and society over the long term. With editorial introduction and headnotes to each essay, the collection provides students with an overview of the debate on this central event of European history.
