Reformation Thought by King Margaret L.
'A highly approachable collection of selections both canonical (but not less important for that; one cant teach the Reformation without key texts from Erasmus Luther Calvin et al) and less well known. The latter texts -- from Mantova Melancthon Beza Riedeman Campion Hoby Pole and others -- are illuminating and useful in every case. The decision to carry the story to the late seventeenth and even eighteenth century and bring in the overseas perspective was an excellent one. Kings characteristic ability to choose important pieces -- and translate and annotate them accurately and well -- is on full display here. The introductions to the chapters and to the individual selections are well written and concise.' -- Thomas Kuehn Clemson University
