About the Authors
  • This authoritative volume presents the history of Christianity from the eve of the Protestant Reformation to the height of Catholic Reform. In addition to in-depth coverage of the politics and theology of various reform movements in the sixteenth century, this book discusses at length the impact of the permanent schism on Latin Christendom, the Catholic responses to it, and the influence on the development of the Orthodox churches. This comprehensive and comparative overview covers the history of society, politics, theology, liturgy, religious orders, and art in the lands of Latin Christianity. In thirty chapters written by an international team of contributors the volume expands the boundaries of inquiry to the relationship between Christianity and non-Christian religions - Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism - both in Europe and in the non-European world.

    • The multi-disciplinary approach of the volume brings a new dimension to this crucial chapter in the history of Christianity
    • The history of Christianity in this period is treated with the broadest geographic and thematic scope
    • Contributions come from an international team of experts

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The articles in this volume are of the high standard that one would expect given the expertise of the contributors. Although they are largely summary in nature, one is left with a clear sense of the cutting-edge research underlying this volume that in turn reflects the current vibrancy and depth of Reformation studies … Along with an excellent chronology and a very full bibliography for both the volume itself and for each article, this is a succinct history of early modern Christianity and an ideal summary of current research developments for scholars at all levels.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History

    'This book provides readers with a broad spectrum of perspectives on the period of the Reformation and Protestant Orthodoxy, placing them within the larger context of Christian life and thought in Europe and beyond.' Journal of Reformed Theology
