Andrew Atherstone traces the dramatic and compelling story from the Renaissance to the 17th century wars of religion, following the drama from its beginnings in Germany, through France, England, Scotland, and Rome. Focusing on the key personalities and events, he explains the often complex ideas that were at stake--and the political as well as religious issues involved. This is a lucid, authoritative account of a movement that changed the face of Europe forever. The great figures, such as Martin Luther and John Calvin, are brought vividly to life in an accessible, lively, and engaging overview of this critical period"--Page [4] of cover."@en ;
