At a time when men and women were prepared to kill - and be killed - for their faith, the Reformation tore the western world apart. Acclaimed as the definitive account of these epochal events, MacCulloch's award-winning history brilliantly re-creates the religious battles of priests, monarchs, scholars, politicians - from Martin Luther to Loyola, from Cramer to Philip II.
Profound historical account presented with skill and magnificence. 832 pages.
