Book Description

3 Sep 2012 European History in Perspective
Peter G. Wallace adeptly interweaves the influential events of the early modern religious reformation with the transformations of political institutions, socio-economic structures, gender relations, and cultural values throughout Europe. In this established study, Wallace:
* examines the European Reformation as a long-term process
* reconnects the classic sixteenth-century religious struggles with the political and religious pressures confronting late medieval Christianity
* argues that the resolutions proposed by reformers, such as Luther, were not fully realised for most Christians until the early eighteenth century.

Incorporating the latest research, the second edition of this essential text now features a new chapter on the Reformation and Islam, expanded discussion of gender issues, and a helpful glossary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dispels an imagined past!! 24 Jun 2013
By Onora
Format:Paperback
This is one of the set books for A200 Exploring History: Medieval to Modern 1400-1900, otherwise I would not have bothered with it as religious history is not my favourite subject. It is by no means an easy read. I have read it to familiarise myself with it before commencing the course in October. Wallace divides the book into two parts. Part 1 The Warp: Threads of Reformation Histories, 1350-1650. There are four subtitles under Part 1: 1. The Late Medieval Crisis, 1348-1517. 2. Resistance, Renewal, and Reform, 1414-1521. 3. Evangelical Movements and Confessions, 1521-59. 4. Reform and Religious War, 1550-1650.

Part II The Weft: Making Sense of the Long European Reformation. The two headings under this are: 5. Settlements, 1600-1750: Church Building, State Building, and Social Discipline. 6. Rereading the Reformation through Gender Analysis. Wallace's account of the European Reformation is certainly contrasting to the account I received!! He portrays a long bloody messy continuity of wars, disputes, persecution, executions for heresy etc. Another striking feature is of how divided and fragmented the Protestant Evangelical Movements were, which all amounted to how 'god should be worshiped', Furthermore such divisions remain extant. Moreover, Wallace asserts that from the beginning Lutheranism had a heavy reliance on protection from magistrates and monarchs/rulers with political affiliations to parliament, rather than godly intervention. If one is not religious and has no aspirations to be so, then this book would not be the one to read. Wallace also devotes a few pages to 'Witchcraft and Witch-hunting. Apparently, between 100,000 and 200,000 people were officially tried with between 50,000 and 100,000 executed for witchcraft.

If you don't need this for study or are just really, really, really interested in the Reformation there are better and easier reads out there.
