5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent succinct look at the key period of the reformation, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Protestant Reformation briefly explained (A grade history lectures Book 16) (Kindle Edition)
Well written and interesting review of the Protestant reformation. Ideal for the generalist who wants an overview or the student who wants an introduction / revision piece. I used it to give me a broad overview to underpin an Open University Unit I am studying (Specifically A200 block 2 - The European Reformation)

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear Concise Commendable, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Protestant Reformation briefly explained (A grade history lectures Book 16) (Kindle Edition)
This is a brief explanation but regardless of this the author fits a remarkable amount of information into this little download. It explores various factors ranging from the use of the printing press to the spread of humanism in a way that is both easy to follow and undeniably enjoyable.

A subject such as this is something that could easily fill several large books so it is to the author's credit that he has limited himself in the writing of this book so that he gives the impression of covering the topic extensively without exhausting the reader.

At the end of the book the author has included a few recommendations of books that interested individuals can read in order to further explore the subject. Since reading this book I have pursued a few of the author's recommendations, namely the works of Eamon Duffy.

Overall I would recommend this book to students and the historically curious as it satisfies a casual interest in the Reformation and could easily spark something more serious!
