Publisher Description

Encyclopedia of Protestantism explores the movement that began in Europe in the 16th century, established itself in opposition to the Roman Catholic Church, spread around the world, and today lives on in thousands of individual denominations and parachurch organizations. A comprehensive encyclopedia on Protestantism, this invaluable reference covers its history, concepts, people, events, and major organizations worldwide.

Applying a broad definition of the term Protestantism, coverage includes the Reformation churches, the Protestant-like churches that predated them, and the Free Churches. A special effort has been made to also include those parts of the world in which Protestantism did not take hold until the 19th century, such as Asia, Africa, and Oceania. A lengthy introduction provides an overview of the tradition, and approximately 80 black-and-white photographs, further readings, a chronology, a bibliography, and an index enhance this fascinating reference.
