About this product
- DescriptionThe Reformation is one of the most important events in world history. It sparked changes in beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that set off a chain of devastating wars in Europe, created the United States and still shapes the modern world, even in secular societies that longer have any faith in a supernatural deity, and in countries where Christians are in the mirity. Yet it had relatively low-key beginnings: in 1517 a German monk, Martin Luther, thought there was room for improvement in the Roman Catholic church to which he belonged. Instead, he discovered he had founded a new religion, which became kwn as Protestantism. The Protestant work ethic and WASPs (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants) are shorthand terms for a complex interrelationship between religion and society which developed in the centuries following the Reformation. This book gives a useful introduction to the major events of the Reformation itself and the consequences that have flowed from the new ways of thinking it created.
