Catholic Germany from the Reformation to the Enlightenment by Marc Forster

Catholic Germany from the Reformation to the Enlightenment

Part of the European History in Perspective Series


Catholic Germany from the Reformation to the Enlightenment by Marc Forster

This is one of the first book length studies available in English of the development of Catholic identity and a specific German Catholic culture in the 300 years after the Reformation. The book emphasizes the particular nature of Church institutions in Germany and the vital role of the population in the creation of Catholic practice and belief.


'A crisp, readable survey of the transformation of German Catholicism during the early modern era.' - Robert J. Bast, University of Tennessee, USA 'A superb text: its clarity, intelligence and the care with which it evaluates the historiography and sets out its own original arguments are exemplary.' - Trevor Johnson, University of the West of England, UK 'This well crafted study should prompt closer study of the forces driving both social-disciplining and populist exuberance within religious traditions.' - John Theibault, Richard Stockton College of New Jersey'
