Calvinism in Europe 1540-1620

A Pettegree (Ed)

Calvinism in Europe 1540-1620

A Pettegree (Ed)

$70.99

Paperback
Calvinism was the most dynamic and disruptive religious force of the later sixteenth century. Its emergence on the international scene shattered the precarious equilibrium established in the first generation of the Reformation, and precipitated three generations of religious warfare. This collection of original essays, newly available in paperback, probes different aspects of this complex phenomenon at a local level. Contributors present the results of their detailed work on societies as diverse as France, Germany, Highland Scotland and Hungary. Among wider themes approached are the impact of Calvin's writings, Calvinism in higher education, the contrasting fates of reformed preachers in town and country, Calvinist discipline and apocalyptic thought, and the shadowy affinity of merchants and scholars who formed a critical part of the 'Calvinist International'.

- Publisher "...this volume will be welcomed by advanced students of early modern religion, society and politics." History

- Publisher An interesting collection of essays probing the different aspects of international Calvinism.
