Item description for In the Shadow of "Savage Wolves": Anabaptist Munster and the German Reformation During the 1530's (Studies in Central European Histories) by Sigrun Haude...
This book examines the multifaceted reactions of political and religious leaders to the Anabaptist reign in Munster (1534-1535). It takes as its point of departure Protestant Strasbourg, Catholic Cologne, as well as the Rhineland, and then broadens the perspective to imperial estates and the empire. The author analyzes the representations of the Munsterites and juxtaposes the fierce language with the actions that were taken to eliminate the Anabaptist menace at home and in Munster. The book is particularly important for scholars of Catholic Reform, of the empire and of confessionalization, of Cologne and Strasbourg, and of Anabaptism.
