The Reformation in Eastern and Central Europe
This work provides a comprehensive and multi-facetted account of the Reformation in eastern and central Europe, drawing on extensive archival research carried out by Continental and British scholars. Across a broad thematic, temporal and geographical range, the contributors examine the cultural impact of the Reformation in Eastern Europe, the encounters between different confessions, and the blend of religious and political pressures which shaped the path of Reformation in these lands. By making the fruits of their research accessible to a wider audience, the contributors hope to emphasise the important role of eastern and central Europe on the early modern European scene.
'This book fills in gaps in our understanding of developments parallel to those in the West and thus enables us better to assess and analyze the Reformation in every land in Europe. All college, university, and seminary libraries should have this volume.' Religious Studies Review, Vol. 24, No. 3 'this collection makes a fine volume. It should help to bring these crucially important peripheries into more central focus in discussions of the Age of Reform.' Slavic Review, Vol. 57, No. 3 'as an encouragement for further exploration and as a reminder of the importance of the region, this volume makes a valuable contribution to eastern European Reformation studies.'
