Writings On The Reformation
All Things Made New shows MacCulloch at his best - learned, far-seeing, sometimes subversive, and often witty.
The Reformation which engulfed England and Europe in the sixteenth century was one of the most highly-charged, bloody and transformative periods in their history. Ever since, it has remained one of the most contested. Diarmaid MacCulloch is one of the leading British historians of this turbulent and endlessly fascinating era. Many essays in this volume expand upon his now classic Reformation: Europe's House Divided, tracing, for example, the evolution of the English Prayer Book and Bible or reassessing the impact of the Reformation on Catholicism. All Things Made New shows MacCulloch at his best - learned, far-seeing, sometimes subversive, and often witty.
“A masterly take on the Reformation . . . absorbing and compelling, full of insights”
Linda Hogan, Irish Times
“One of our very best public historians . . . as this collection triumphantly confirms, MacCulloch writes authoritatively and engagingly on a remarkably diverse range of topics in the history of Christian culture”
Peter Marshall, Literary Review
“Written with elegance and sometimes donnish wit . . . he wears his learning lightly”
Robert Tombs, The Times
“Dazzling . . . prodigiously learned . . . MacCulloch has a gift for explaining complicated things simply”
Jack Scarisbrick, Catholic Herald
