Tolerance and Intolerance in the European Reformation
Ole Peter Grell, Bob Scribner
Cambridge University Press, Jun 20, 2002 - History - 308 pages
The sixteen chapters in this book, written by leading experts in this period's history, offer a new and dramatically different interpretation of how religious toleration and conflict developed in the crucial period between 1500, when northern humanism had begun to make an impact, and 1648, the end of the Thirty Years War. They question the traditional view of a general progression toward greater religious toleration, and instead place religious tolerance and intolerance in their specific social and political contexts.
