Most widely held works by A. G Dickens
The English Reformation by A. G Dickens( Book )

120 editions published between 1964 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry VIII officially brought the Protestant Reformation to England in the 1530s when he severed the English Church from the Papacy. But the seeds of the movement, according to A.G. Dickens, were planted much earlier. The English Reformation, first published in 1964, follows the movement from its late medieval origins through the settlement of Elizabeth I in 1559 and the rise of Puritanism
Reformation and society in sixteenth-century Europe by A. G Dickens( Book )

65 editions published between 1955 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 2,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The deep impact of sixteenth-century religion on European society can still be felt in our own time. In this profound but lively study the movements inspired by Luther, Zwingli and Calvin are described with the mastery which the author's previous works in the field -- especially "The Eighth Reformation"--Have led us to expect. Other important influences, such as the Radicals, receive equally stimulating treatment, and the numerous illustrations from contemporary sources will help to create a vivid picture of the Reformation as a whole, against its social, political and intellectual background."

The Counter Reformation by A. G Dickens( Book )

57 editions published between 1968 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reform of the Catholic Church in the sixteenth century was historically as important as the contemporary Protestant Reformation. Though never committed solely to fighting Protestantism, it inevitably also became a Counter Reformation, since it soon faced the threat created by Luther and his successors. The century between the career of Ignatius Loyola and that of Vincent de Paul became a classic age of Catholicism. The lives of its saints, popes and secular champions could hardly be made more fascinating by any novelist. While paying due attention to the great characters, the author also considers the broader political, social and cultural features of the Counter Reformation. A.G. Dickens is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of London

Thomas Cromwell and the English Reformation by A. G Dickens( Book )

52 editions published between 1958 and 1977 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Describes the career, personality and outlook of Thomas Cromwell as a leading figure in the English Reformation. As such it has a marked historical importance, for no English statesman stands in greater need of re-assessment or a just estimate of his life and work ... It shows that Thomas Cromwell was not only an efficient and brilliant administrator, but a major reforming statesman, constructive in outlook, a patron of political thought, and the true author of almost every creative achievement in the reign of Henry VIII ..."--Publisher description

The Reformation in historical thought by A. G Dickens( Book )

21 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and German and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By any reckoning the Reformation has proved a giant among international movements of modern times -- a catalyst for dramatic changes in intellectual life, social behavior, and material conditions. The authors examine the whole field of historical writing on this major segment of modern Western history, from its earliest struggle over the meaning of Christianity to the emergence of larger questions of human freedom, the development of objective attitudes, and research into social-religious structures. The Reformation in Historical Though will become the standard critical guide to the main developments of Reformation studies, as well as a stimulus to further research. Its vast scope and penetrating analysis will make it a classic of early modern European intellectual history. - Publisher
