In a brilliantly coherent account, Bainton discusses the background for Luther’s irreparable breach with the Church and its ramifications for 16th century Europe, giving thorough accounts of the Diet of Worms, the institution of the Holy Commonwealth of Geneva, and Henry VIII’s break with Rome. The major figures—Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Knox, and Cranmer—are presented, and the major doctrines are explained with respect to both theology and politics.
