Book Cover
A Companion to the Reformation World

“This volume of essays can grearly help teachers and students alike read more deeply in a variety of topics in the Reformation era, pick up various lines of research, and often get a good grasp of some current lines of questioning and scholarship in the academy.”

Teaching Theology and Religion

“This volume offers an interesting and thought-provoking overview … and is equally useful as a teaching aid and as a general reference work on the Reformation.”


This volume brings together 29 new essays by leading international scholars, to provide an inclusive overview of recent work in Reformation history. The articles examine the Reformation in its broadest definition, presenting the Catholic Renewal as a continuum of the Protestant Reformation. The essays span the late fifteenth century to the middle of the eighteenth century and they focus on the workings of religious reform in all areas of Latin Christendom and beyond to include Eastern as well as Western Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

Established topics are examined alongside new areas of study, incorporating the latest scholarship and conceptual debates to provide a wide-ranging survey of the state of contemporary Reformation historiography. The book will be the ideal reference for students and professional historians interested in understanding the current concerns and future direction of this field.
