Synopses & Reviews
This book deals with the impact of the Reformation debate in Germany on the most prominent intellectual movement of the time: humanism. Although it is true that humanism influenced the course of the Reformation, says Erika Rummel, the dynamics of the relationship are better described by saying that humanism was co-opted, perhaps even exploited, in the religious debate.
"This volume will set the agenda for critical scholarly discussion of the relationship of confessionalization and humanism."--Religious Studies Review
