How could the Protestant Reformation take off from Wittenberg, a tiny town in Saxony, which contemporaries regarded as a mud hole? And how could a man of humble origins, deeply scared by the devil, become a charismatic leader and convince others that the Pope was the living Antichrist? Martin Luther founded a religion which to this day determines many people's lives, as did Jean Calvin in Geneva one generation later. In this new edition of her best selling textbook, Ulinka Rublack addresses these two tantalising questions. Including evidence from the period's rich material culture, alongside a wealth of illustrations, this is the first textbook to use the approaches of the new cultural history to analyse how Reformation Europe came about. Updated for the anniversary of the circulation of Luther's ninety-five theses, Reformation Europe has been restructured for ease of teaching, and now contains additional references to 'radical' strands of Protestantism.

An original and fresh presentation of how Luther and Calvin transformed Europe and the wider world

Integrates an understanding of the history of emotions with an account of what being Protestant meant for ordinary Europeans

This edition has been updated for the anniversary of the Reformation, and now includes more illustrations to underline the importance of visuality and materiality as they shaped and reflected people's understandings of themselves and the world
