The Reformation marked a period of profound upheaval - one of the greatest turning points in the history of Christianity - and sent shock waves through the western world. In this book, Andrew Atherstone traces the dramatic and compelling story from the Renaissance to the sixteenth-century wars of religion, following the action from its beginnings in Germany, through Switzerland, France, Italy, England, Scotland, and the Netherlands. Focusing on the key personalities and events, he explains the often complex ideas that were at stake, and the political as well as religious issues involved. This is a lucid, authoritative account of a movement that changed the face of Europe forever. The great figures, such as Martin Luther and John Calvin, are brought vividly to life in an accessible, lively and engaging overview of this critical period.
Andrew Atherstone is research fellow of the Latimer Trust and is involved in a ministry of writing and speaking. His main research explores aspects of Protestant and Evangelical history. His first two books are The Martyrs of Mary Tudor (Day One 2005) and Oxford's Protestant Spy: The Controversial Career of Charles Golightly (Paternoster 2007).|
