Item description for Anticlericalism in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe (Studies in Medieval and Reformation Thought) by Peter A. Dykema, Heiko Augustinus Oberman & Peter A. Dykema...
Traditionally anticlericalism has been regarded as a significant historical factor, by some historians even as the unifying focal point for the hist of movements known as the Reformation of the 16th century. In 41 essays, eminent historians of culture, religion and society redefine and redirect the debate regarding the scope and impact of European anticlericalism during the period 1300-1700. The meaning of reform and resentment is discussed and the sentiments are analyzed which were directed first against all levels of the Roman hierarchy, and later also against the evangelical pastor. Using sources drawin from a variety of city and village archives, of literary genres and theological tracts, the articles presented here uncover the clusters of reform hope and bitter resentment directed toward parish priest, monk, bishop and pope, in addition to the early Protestant clergy. The volume highlights the continuity and discontinuity of anticleral passion, language, goals and actions between the late medieval and Reformation periods.
