While Italy proved fertile ground for a Renaissance, the Reformation found rocky soil on Rome’s home turf. Where Michelangelo and da Vinci bore their greatest fruit, Luther and Calvin’s otherwise explosive thought was quickly expunged, after brief initial growth, in the face of an intense Inquisition and a failure to bear fruit among the masses. Collected here are several classic works analyzing two of the most powerful movements in Western history, and their disparate ends on the Italian Peninsula.
Experience the personal drama of Protestant and Catholic figures influenced by the Reformation. Analyze the broad religious significance of the Renaissance and the causes of the Italian Reformation’s collapse. These pivotal movements with divergent outcomes are notable case studies for not only students of church history, but also of politics, sociology, and history in general.
