Item description for Ecclesia Reformata: Studies on the Reformation (Kerkhistorische Bijdragen, No 16) by W. Nijenhuis...
In comparison with volume I (1972) the author has extended the scope of the term `Reformation'. In this book the term indicates the sum of religious, social and political reforms which presented themselves as a result of work of the reformers of the 16th century. After giving consideration to Luther and particularly to Calvin in part I, attention is paid in part II to the development and the distinctive nature of the Reformation in the Northern Netherlands, with an accent on the variety of Dutch Calvinism. In part III the relations of these churches with those in England and Scotland are elucidated. More attention is paid to the British churches than has been usual in the traditional continental writing on church history. In every chapter the author is trying to overcome deep-rooted and persistent prejudices in traditional historiography.
