The invention of news : how the world came to know about itself by Andrew Pettegree( )

22 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 2,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long before the invention of printing, let alone the availability of a daily newspaper, people desired to be informed. In the pre-industrial era news was gathered and shared through conversation and gossip, civic ceremony, celebration, sermons, and proclamations. The age of print brought pamphlets, edicts, ballads, journals, and the first news-sheets, expanding the news community from local to worldwide. This groundbreaking book tracks the history of news in ten countries over the course of four centuries. It evaluates the unexpected variety of ways in which information was transmitted in the premodern world as well as the impact of expanding news media on contemporary events and the lives of an ever-more-informed public. Andrew Pettegree investigates who controlled the news and who reported it; the use of news as a tool of political protest and religious reform; issues of privacy and titillation; the persistent need for news to be current and journalists trustworthy; and people's changed sense of themselves as they experienced newly opened windows on the world. By the close of the eighteenth century, Pettegree concludes, transmission of news had become so efficient and widespread that European citizens-now aware of wars, revolutions, crime, disasters, scandals, and other events-were poised to emerge as actors in the great events unfolding around them"--
The Reformation world by Andrew Pettegree( )

32 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully illustrated book is the most ambitious one-volume survey of the Reformation yet attempted. A timely and much-needed account, it looks at every aspect of the Reformation world and considers new historical research which has led to the expansion of the subject both thematically and geographically. The strength of The Reformation World is its breadth and originality, with material drawn from many different countries, including archival material only recently made available to scholars in central Europe. Topics included are: - the Church before the Reformation - Luther and Germany - the Reformation outside Germany - Calvinism and the Second Reformation - the Reformation and society - arts and architecture - the printed book and visual media
The book in the Renaissance by Andrew Pettegree( Book )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 2,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dawn of print was a major turning point in the early modern world. It rescued ancient learning from obscurity, transformed knowledge of the natural and physical world, and brought the thrill of book ownership to the masses. But, as Andrew Pettegree reveals, the story of the post-Guttenberg world was rather more complicated than we have often come to believe. The Book in the Renaissance reconstructs the first 150 years of the world of print, exploring the complex web of religious, economic and cultural concerns surrounding the printed word. From its very beginnings, the printed book had to straddle financial and religious imperatives, as well as the very different requirements and constraints of the many countries who embraced it, and, as Pettegree argues, the process was far from a runaway success. More than ideas, the success or failure of books depended upon patrons and markets, precarious strategies and the thwarting of piracy, and the ebb and flow of popular demand. Pettegree crafts an authoritative, lucid and truly pioneering work of cultural history illuminating one of the greatest developments in the evolution of European society."--Jacket
Reformation and the culture of persuasion by Andrew Pettegree( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 2,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French book and the European book world by Andrew Pettegree( )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work offers a series of linked studies of European print culture in the sixteenth century, focusing particularly on France and the regional, provincial experience of print. France, in the sixteenth century, was one of the great centres of the European publishing industry. But in the second half of the century the established dominance of Paris and Lyon was increasingly challenged by other new printing centres, stimulated in part by the religious and political crisis of the French Wars of Religion. Drawing on the data collected by the St Andrews French book project, the author reconstructs the enigmatic history of a number of previously unstudied printers. The focus throughout is on popular print, and the growth of mass market for news, entertainment and religious instruction."--Jaquette

Brand Luther : 1517, printing, and the making of the Reformation by Andrew Pettegree( Book )

26 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Martin Luther posted his "theses" on the door of the Wittenberg church in 1517, protesting corrupt practices, he was virtually unknown. Within months, his ideas spread across Germany, then all of Europe; within years, their author was not just famous, but infamous, responsible for catalyzing the violent wave of religious reform that would come to be known as the Protestant Reformation and engulfing Europe in decades of bloody war. Luther came of age with the printing press, and the path to glory of neither one was obvious to the casual observer of the time. Printing was, and is, a risky business--the questions were how to know how much to print and how to get there before the competition. Pettegree illustrates Luther's great gifts not simply as a theologian, but as a communicator, indeed, as the world's first mass-media figure, its first brand. He recognized the power of pamphlets, written in the colloquial German of everyday people, to win the battle of ideas. But that wasn't enough--not just words, but the medium itself was the message. Fatefully, Luther had a partner in the form of artist and businessman Lucas Cranach, who together with Wittenberg's printers created the distinctive look of Luther's pamphlets. Together, Luther and Cranach created a product that spread like wildfire--it was both incredibly successful and widely imitated. Soon Germany was overwhelmed by a blizzard of pamphlets, with Wittenberg at its heart; the Reformation itself would blaze on for more than a hundred years. This book fuses the history of religion, of printing, and of capitalism--the literal marketplace of ideas--into one enthralling story, revolutionizing our understanding of one of the pivotal figures and eras in human history.--Adapted from book jacket
Broadsheets : single-sheet publishing in the first age of print by Andrew Pettegree( )

14 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers an expansive survey of the role of single-sheet publishing in the European print industry during the first two centuries after the invention of printing. Drawing on new materials made available during the compilation of the Universal Short Title Catalogue, the twenty contributors explore the extraordinary range of broadsheet publishing and its contribution to government, pedagogy, religious devotion and entertainment culture. Long disregarded as ephemera or cheap print, broadsheets emerge both as a crucial communication medium and an essential underpinning of the economics of the publishing industry"--Provided by publisher
The Early Reformation in Europe by Andrew Pettegree( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the generation that followed Martin Luther's protest the evangelical movement in Europe attracted very different levels of support in different parts of the continent. Whereas in eastern and central Europe the new movement brought a swift transformation of the religious and political landscape, progress elsewhere was more halting: in the Mediterranean lands and western Europe initial enthusiasm for reform failed to bring about the wholesale renovation of society for which evangelicals had hoped. These fascinating contrasts are the main focus of this volume of specially commissioned essays, each of which charts the progress of reform in one country or region of Europe. Written in each case by a leading specialist in the field, they provide a survey based on primary research and a thorough grasp of the vernacular literature. For both scholars and students they will be an invaluable guide to recent debates and literature on the success or failure of the first generation of reform
Calvinism in Europe, 1540-1620( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Calvinism was the most dynamic and disruptive religious force of the later sixteenth century. Its emergence on the international scene shattered the precarious equilibrium established in the first generation of the Reformation, and precipitated three generations of religious warfare. This new collection of original essays probes different aspects of this complex phenomenon at a local level. Contributors present the results of their detailed work on societies as diverse as France, Germany, Highland Scotland and Hungary. Among wider themes approached are the impact of Calvin's writings, Calvinism in higher education, the contrasting fates of Reformed preachers in town and country, Calvinist discipline and apocalyptic thought, and the shadowy affinity of merchants and scholars who formed a critical part of the 'Calvinist International'."--Jacket

Emden and the Dutch revolt : exile and the development of reformed Protestantism by Andrew Pettegree( Book )

13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German town of Emden was, in the sixteenth century, the most important haven for exiled Dutch Protestants. In this book, based on unrivalled knowledge of the contemporary archives, Andrew Pettegree explores the role of Emden as a refuge, a training centre and, above all, as the major source of Dutch Protestant propaganda. He also provides a unique and invaluable reconstruction of the output of Emden's famous printing presses. The emergence of an independent state in the Netherlands was accompanied by a transformation in the status of Protestantism from a persecuted sect to the dominant religious force in the new Dutch republic. Dr Pettegree shows how the exile churches, the nurseries of Dutch Calvinism, provided military and financial support for the armies of William of Orange and models of church organization for the new state. Emden and the Dutch Revolt is a major scholarly contribution to our understanding of the origins of the Dutch Republic and the place of Calvinism in the European Reformation
Calvinism in Europe, 1540-1610 : a collection of documents( Book )

The bookshop of the world : making and trading books in the Dutch golden age by Andrew Pettegree( )

17 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dutch Golden Age has long been seen as the age of Rembrandt and Vermeer, whose paintings captured the public imagination and came to represent the marvel that was the Dutch Republic. Yet there is another, largely overlooked marvel in the Dutch world of the seventeenth century: books. In this fascinating account, Andrew Pettegree and Arthur der Weduwen show how the Dutch produced many more books than pictures and bought and owned more books per capita than any other part of Europe. Key innovations in marketing, book auctions, and newspaper advertising brought stability to a market where elsewhere publishers faced bankruptcy, and created a population uniquely well-informed and politically engaged. This book tells for the first time the remarkable story of the Dutch conquest of the European book world and shows the true extent to which these pious, prosperous, quarrelsome, and generous people were shaped by what they read
Marian Protestantism : six studies by Andrew Pettegree( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The revival of Catholicism under Mary Tudor was a moment of supreme crisis for English Protestantism. Although the dismantling of the church polity that had been created under Edward VI left Protestants exposed and bewildered, their vigorous tradition, Andrew Pettegree argues, showed an unexpected resilience. Although many sought safety in flight abroad, and those who had to remain faced the uncomfortable choice between between conformity and martyrdom, the vitality of the English Protestants' own religion was preserved and a new church emerged at the Elizabethan settlement." "This book presents six original studies which explore various aspects of this survival under Mary. Exiles, martyrs and conformists are all here considered as part of a rich and varied testimony to the strides that the evangelical cause had made in England in the previous two decades, culminating in the bold reforming experiment of the reign of Edward VI. The concluding chapters offer a reinterpretation of the events leading to the emergence of a new Protestant church in the Elizabethan settlement of religion, and justify a more generous assessment of the achievement of early English Protestantism."--Jacket
The education of a Christian society : humanism and the Reformation in Britain and the Netherlands by N. Scott Amos( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the sixteenth century, political and intellectual developments in Britain and the Netherlands were closely intertwined. At different times religious refugees from one or other country found a secure haven across the Channel, and a constant interchange of books, ideas and personnel underscored the affinity of lands which both made a painful progress towards Protestantism during the course of the century." "This collection of ten new studies, all by specialists active in the field, explores the full ramifications of these links, from the first intellectual contacts inspired by the growth of Humanism to the planting of established Protestant churches."--Jacket
