Overview

A new, definitive atlas of the European Reformations has been needed for many years. Now, in anticipation of the upcoming reformation anniversaries, Fortress Press is pleased to offer the Atlas of the European Reformations.

The Atlas of the European Reformations is newly built from the ground up. Featuring more than sixty brand new maps, graphics, and timelines, the atlas is a necessary companion to any study of the reformation era. Consciously written for students at any level, concise, helpful texts guide the experience and interpret the visuals. The volume is perfect for independent students, as well as those in structured courses.

The atlas is broken into four primary parts. “Before the Reformation” presents the larger political, religious, and economic context of Europe on the eve of the Reformation. “Reformation” presents the major contours of the Reformation, including Lutheran, Reformed, English, and Anabaptist movements. “Catholic Reform and Counter-Reformation” provides extensive information on the reforming movements within Catholicism and the responses to other movements. Finally, “Early Modern Europe” sheds fresh light on the movement and implications of the reformation in the later sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

—Alister E. McGrath, Reformation scholar, University of Oxford

The beautifully produced maps of this Atlas—along with informative time lines, well-chosen illustrations, and clear, accessible prose—make this book an excellent contribution to 500th anniversary commemorations of the Reformation. All who are concerned about the fate of Christianity today will benefit from this illuminating window into the crises, the renewal, and the world-wide effects of the Reformation era.

—Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

Not only the ‘when’ but also the ‘where’ of past events brings our history into meaningful focus. This volume provides a running overview of the cauldrons of our heritage in the years leading to the Reformation, the sixteenth century itself, and elements of its impact on the seventeenth century, alongside clearly detailed maps. These maps make concrete the spaces in which the epoch-making unfolding of the Reformation took place. Scholars and beginners alike will gain a clearer understanding by placing the places of the Reformation into their geographical and chronological frameworks. A valuable tool for teaching and learning, formal and informal.
