Abstract:

The writings in this collection reveal a great religious movement in all the turbulence and thrust of the conflicting ideologies espoused by its major figures. From the personal letters, addresses, treatises and public confessions of Erasmus, Luther, Calvin, Servetus and Zwingli, among others, there emerges a dramatic account of a Church -- and an age -- to crisis. Placed in perspective by the editors' introductory essay, these selections provide a spiritual biography of the sixteenth century, embodying both major forces of the time: the discontent with conditions in the Church, and the yearning for a radically new spiritual rebirth.
