Item description for Christianity under the Ancien Régime, 1648-1789 (New Approaches to European History) by W. Reginald Ward, T. C. W. Blanning & William Beik...
Focusing on policy, rather than religious institutions, Professor Ward offers an account of religious belief and practice of all kinds in Europe between the Westphalia settlements in 1648 and the French Revolution. The book is organised around large regions, for instance, Central and North-western Europe (including Britain), Southern Europe and North and Eastern Europe. Professor Ward discusses the political, social and intellectual forces at play in each of these regions in order to allow the reader to understand changes in policy in their proper context. In addition, popular belief, which churches of all denominations regarded as suspicious, is presented in its context of traditional practice, and an attempt is made to assess the successes and failures of European domestic missions during this period.
