Teaching Theology and Religion "This volume offers an interesting and thought-provoking overview ... and is equally useful as a teaching aid and as a general reference work on the Reformation." Sehepunkte "The various contributors skilfully weave past and current research into their critical accounts, always trying their best to keep their texts accessible to the general reader and the scholar alike ... The editor is to be commended for his success in bringing together a cohort of such experts and for viewing the world of the Reformation from so many different angles, extending the historical range far into the late seventeenth century, which allows the reader to comprehend the long-term effects of the Reform movement." Albrecht Classen, University of Arizona, The Sixteenth Century Journal, The Journal of Early Modern Studies "The quality of the essays is uniformly and consistently high ... .Overall, [this book] should prove to be of considerable value." H-Net Reviews "Professor Po-chia Hsia, well known as the author of many books and articles on the Reformation, Counter-Reformation, and the history of anti-Semitism, assembled a team of twenty-eight scholars from Europe, America and Asia to join him in writing contributions to this volume. The volume contains several very useful overviews of countries or areas about which relatively little has been published in English." English Historical Review
