The Reformation: A Very Short Introduction considers a process which transformed Europe and left an indelible mark on the modern world — one that began as a dispute over Christians' path to salvation, but rapidly led to fundamental changes in society. Doctrinal debates are examined in a non-technical way, and the effects the Reformation had on politics, society, art, and minorities are made explicit. This VSI looks at how varieties of faith exported from Europe transformed Christianity into a truly world religion. It assesses the complex legacy of the Reformation, contrasting the intensified intolerance produced and the establishment of pluralism.
