  • Reformation und alter Glaubeby Marc Mudrak

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 114.99

    Die Altgläubigen in der ersten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts wurden in der Forschung lange als die kulturell und rituell unproduktive Kehrseite der Reformation gesehen. Die Analyse von fünf Fallstudien aus dem Alten Reich und Frankreich sowie von überregionalen Flugschriften widerlegt dieses Bild. Der Blick in die Dörfer und auf den gemeinen Mann offenbart... more...

  • Thomas Cranmerby Susan Wabuda

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 145.00

    Thomas Cranmer’s place in English history is firmly established, yet the complexities of his character have remained obscure and he continues to be one of the most problematic figures of the Tudor period.

    Florence in the early fifteenth century is generally regarded as the epicentre of the early Renaissance.

In order to improve their... more...

  • Witchcraft, the Devil, and Emotions in Early Modern Englandby Charlotte-Rose Millar

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 49.95

    This book represents the first systematic study of the role of the Devil in English witchcraft pamphlets for the entire period of state-sanctioned witchcraft prosecutions (1563-1735). It provides a rereading of English witchcraft, one which moves away from an older historiography which underplays the role of the Devil in English witchcraft and instead... more...
