About "Social Discipline in the Reformation"
Social Discipline in the Reformation provides the first synthesis of a dynamic field of research. Departing from traditional periodization, Hsia argues that the Reformation and Counter-Reformation were not so much distinct, opposing events as structurally similar developments in the long-term social transformation of early modern Central Europe. The period from 1550-1750 calls into question the nature of German history; it offers complex historical patterns for comparison with the developments of state, society, and religion in Western Europe. This is a study of official religions and their relationship with the peoples of Central Europe.;This book should be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and academics of history.
