La severità dell'impegno religioso del Bainton, teologo e storico, professore e organizzatore di opere di assistenza, paziente "ricercatore" alla tedesca per archivi e biblioteche e insieme scrittore incisivo e vivace, è quella che gli permette di trattare questa storia sulla base di un'informazione e preparazione scientifica impareggiabile e insieme con estrema limpidezza e con una evidenza quasi elementare del linguaggio. Questa breve storia della Riforma protestante è opera di un grande storico americano, che ha dedicato approfonditi studi a quell'evento, redigendo inoltre una monografia di particolare rilievo su Lutero. Condotta sulla base di un'informazione e di una preparazione che Delio Cantimori ha definito nella prefazione "impareggiabile", quest'opera studia la rivoluzione religiosa che la Riforma di fatto costituí, considerandone altresí le implicazioni politiche, culturali, economiche e sociali. E la studia non in relazione a una di quelle tendenze o di quelle chiese in cui essa si articolò o cristallizzò, ma nella sua unità e nella sua molteplicità al tempo stesso. Cosí, accanto al luteranesimo vien dato adeguato rilievo all'esperienza svizzera, venata di umanesimo in Zwingli e sistemata poi universalisticamente dal francese Calvino; al carattere peculiare della corruzione della Chiesa anglicana; a movimenti, come l'anabattismo di Thomas Müntzer, che toccarono soprattutto artigiani e contadini o che, come quello sociniano, tanto influirono sullo svolgimento delle idee dei secoli successivi. Bainton, studioso e abile narratore, ci ha dato cosí una storia viva, documentata e al tempo stesso appassionata, un libro di studio e, insieme, di grande lettura

The age of the Reformation by Roland Herbert Bainton( Book )
25 editions published between 1946 and 1985 in English and held by 1,324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the aid of over sixty important sources, most of them translated and abridged by the author, this brief history brings an age of upheaval into sharp focus. It shows succinctly how a compelling ideology, the Christian faith, shaped the history of the Reformation. The religious revolution of the sixteenth century shattered an ecclesiastical structure and quickened a universal faith. The Christian heritage which the Reformation revitalized and transmitted to our time is still the source of Western man's ability to talk in terms of a universal justice, humanity, and the rights of man
