A popular history of the Reformation by Philip Hughes( Book )

42 editions published between 1956 and 1962 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vividly portrays the events, characters and background of the Reformation in a masterpiece of historical writing. The explosive issues, the complex cross-currents of the time, unfold in one lucid and very readable narrative. The author first examines the Reformation background: the laxity, often the corruption, that aroused demands for reform. In this section, he also brings out a lesser-known but vital part of the picture, the Catholic efforts at reform that were beginning to bear fruit even before Luther. Then he studies the different situations in each country: the religious, social and political background. All the key figures of the time--Luther, Zwingli, Erasmus, Henry VIII, Cromwell, St. Thomas More, Calvin, Cranmer, St. Ignatius Loyola, Knox and many more--all emerge in full vigor of their striking personalities. The author captures the significance of these men as he examines the great events of their lives and the main trends in their thought. The book is rounded out with a study of the Council of Trent, the gathering of bishops and theologians that finally achieved the real reform of the Church--from within

The 1st volume is most interesting periods in the history of the Church. It is, from the beginning, a period of revolt - the revolts of thinkers and 'mystics', of princes and kings, of bishops and monks, of capitalist bourgeois and proletarian workers. It is the story of the Templars, of the 'Avignon captivity' and the Great Schism of the West, of the councils of Pisa and Contance and Basel, of the Renaissance and the rise of the Ottoman Turks. It is the story, too, of philosophers (Duns Scotus and Ockham), theologians (Gerson, Nicolas of Cusa, and Cajetan) and humanists (More, Machiavelli, and Erasmus). Popes of the period include Boniface VIII, 'Benedict XIII', Nicholas V, and Pius II, as well as the notorious Borgia, della Rovere, and Medici pontiffs. And, in these 250 years which culminated in the Reformation, come Wicklif, John Hus, and Martin Luther - and Catherine of Sienna, Vincent Ferrer, and Antonius of Florence. This second volume concentrates on the West from the time of Constantine's conversion, when the the Church was beginning to make a world of its own, and it pursues the Church's history in this world of its making to the end of the thirteenth century, when the high point was reached and a new secular order was already appearing
