The Unintended Reformation: how a religious revolution secularized society

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Jan 15, 2012 - History - 560 pages
14 Reviews
In a work as much about the present as the past, Gregory identifies the unintended consequences of the Reformation for the modern condition: a hyperpluralism of beliefs, intellectual disagreements that splinter into fractals of specialized discourse, the absence of a substantive common good, and the triumph of capitalism’s driver, consumerism.

Review: The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Revolution Secularized Society

User Review  - Goodreads

Excellent book, but a hard read. There are more than 100 pages of notes! I have it all annotated, too many interesting, new to me ideas. Anyone interested in why our society is the way it is (and with a modicum of West. Civ. culture) would find something interesting. Read full review
