The Reformation of the Sixteenth Century

Author: Roland H. Bainton   Foreword by: Jaroslav Pelikan

With a new foreword and bibliography by Jaroslav Pelikan

Bainton presents the many strands that made up the Reformation in a single, brilliantly coherent account. He discusses the background for Luther’s irreparable breach with the Church and its ramifications for 16th Century Europe, giving thorough accounts of the Diet of Worms, the institution of the Holy Commonwealth of Geneva, Henry VIII’s break with Rome, and William the Silent’s struggle for Dutch independence.
