The story of a seismic event in world history--one which laid the foundations for the plural and conflicted world we now inhabit. Covers both Protestant and Catholic reform movements--as well as the more radical off-shoots of Reformation. Shows how Christianity became a truly global religion--spreading beyond Europe to Asia and the Americas. Traces the Reformation from its explosive beginnings through to its profound legacy for the modern world--social, cultural, political, and sexual.
