About this book
Overview of the most important event in European history between the fall of the Roman Empire and the French Revolution. It received rave reviews in hardback and should do well in the paperback market. "A masterpiece... In its field it is the best book ever" David L Edwards, "Guardian"
At a time when men and women were prepared to kill - and be killed - for their faith, the Reformation tore western world apart. In this title, the author re-creates the religious battles of priests, monarchs, scholars and politicians, from zealous Martin Luther nailing his Theses to door of a Wittenburg church to the radical Ignatius of Loyola.
