Product Description

The sixteenth-century Reformation remains a fascinating and exciting area of study. The revised edition of this distinguished volume explores the intellectual origins of the Reformation and examines the importance of ideas in the shaping of history.

McGrath demonstrates how the intellectual origins of the Reformation were heterogeneous, and examines the implications of this for our understanding of the Reformation as a whole. McGrath's reading of the Reformation against the complex intellectual background opens up new insights into this highly significant historical phenomenon. This also offers a defense of the entire enterprise of intellectual history, and a reaffirmation of the importance of ideas to the development of history.
