The English Reformation by A. G Dickens ( Book )
103 editions published between 1964 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry VIII officially brought the Protestant Reformation to England in the 1530s when he severed the English Church from the Papacy. But the seeds of the movement, according to A.G. Dickens, were planted much earlier. The English Reformation, first published in 1964, follows the movement from its late medieval origins through the settlement of Elizabeth I in 1559 and the rise of Puritanism

The Counter Reformation by A. G Dickens ( Book )
35 editions published between 1968 and 1992 in English and held by 1,715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The reform of the Catholic Church in the sixteenth century was historically as important as the contemporary Protestant Reformation. Though never committed solely to fighting Protestantism, it inevitably also became a Counter Reformation, since it soon faced the threat created by Luther and his successors. The century between the career of Ignatius Loyola and that of Vincent de Paul became a classic age of Catholicism. The lives of its saints, popes and secular champions could hardly be made more fascinating by any novelist. While paying due attention to the great characters, the author also considers the broader political, social and cultural features of the Counter Reformation. A.G. Dickens is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of London

The Reformation in historical thought by A. G Dickens ( Book )
15 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By any reckoning the Reformation has proved a giant among international movements of modern times -- a catalyst for dramatic changes in intellectual life, social behavior, and material conditions. The authors examine the whole field of historical writing on this major segment of modern Western history, from its earliest struggle over the meaning of Christianity to the emergence of larger questions of human freedom, the development of objective attitudes, and research into social-religious structures. The Reformation in Historical Though will become the standard critical guide to the main developments of Reformation studies, as well as a stimulus to further research. Its vast scope and penetrating analysis will make it a classic of early modern European intellectual history. - Publisher
