German Reformation (Studies in European History)
Paying particular attention to the social history of the broader religious movements of the German Reformation, Scribner examined those elements of popular culture and belief which are now seen to have played a central role in shaping the development and outcome of the movements for reform in the sixteenth century.Scribner concluded that 'the Reformation', as it came to be known, was only one of a wide range of responses to the problem of religious reform and revival, and suggested that the movement as a whole was less successful than previously claimed.
In the second edition of this invaluable text, C. Scott Dixon's new Introduction, supplementary chapter and bibliography continue Scribner's original lines of inquiry, and provide additional commentary on developments within German Reformation scholarship over the sixteen years since its first publication.
Reviews of the first edition:'In a small space, this well-presented work provides a stimulating introduction to detailed study of the period.' - Brian Murdoch, New German Studies'Eminently valuable and useful.' - Hans J. Hillerbrand, The American Historical Review
