This second edition has been expanded and rewritten, primarily to take account of the plethora of recent research on the Reformation...it is a necessary update, as a central consideration of this textbook is how historians have interpreted - and continue to interpret - the reform process. (The coverage of the secondary works is strikingly comprehensive.)...Students will find the historiographical elements of this book useful [and] the introductions and conclusions to each chapter...[It] retains its enviable position as an indispensable and thought-proviking textbook.
