Summary
  • Why was there a Reformation? What was it about? How could a dispute which began with an academic debate over a single religious practice rip apart the religious unity of Europe? These are the questions which historians struggle to answer. This volume of documents allows the men and women of the sixteenth century to answer them - to speak for themselves. Their concerns, their hopes and their fears echo throughout the texts. The pleas of nuns driven from their convents strive to be heard above the clash of armies, each marching under Christ's banner
  • This collection of documents presents the Reformation in all its vibrancy, complexity and destructiveness. Eye-witness accounts, court testimony, diaries and the verbatim records of debates display to the student of the Reformation the leading figures and the ordinary people, the theological ideas and the practical concerns. The Reformation comes to life for the student in the words, memories, and interpretations of the participants themselves - from a Renaissance pope to a dying Huguenot shoemaker
