Editorial Reviews

"Derived from a lifetime of engagement with issues in Early ModernEuropean history and written in an eminently readable style,Professor Lindberg's The European Reformations will open up tostudent and scholar alike the fascinating world of the sixteenthcentury. Not only does Lindberg place the religious movements ofthe time in their political and, especially, social context, buthis knowledge of the theological debates provides the reader withsuccinct, clear explanations of the theological substance that gaverise to the great variety of the age’s‘Reformations’." Timothy J. Wengert, The LutheranTheological Seminary at Philadelphia

"Carter Lindberg has written a compelling narrative regardingthe emergence and development of the various‘Reformations’ of the sixteenth century. Lindberg givesa compelling viewing of the Reformations primarily from atheological and religious perspective, in concert with others likeHeiko Oberman and Brad Gregory, even as he enriches thisperspective with the contributions of social historians. Lindbergdoes especially well in focusing on the reform of the liturgy from‘the cult of the living in the service of the dead’designed to free departed loved ones from Purgatory, to a form ofworship that led directly to the service of the living, especiallythe sick, the poor, and the needy. He also shows how the reformmovements were strengthened and spread by the singing of hymns andpsalms by the women and men who joined these movements. This is aninsightful and cogent analysis of the complex of movements we callthe ‘Reformations’ of the sixteenth century."Randall Zachman, University of Notre Dame
