Counter Reformation, Catholic Reformation, the Baroque Age, the Tridentine Age, the Confessional Age: why does Catholicism in the early modern era go by so many names? And what political situations, what religious and cultural prejudices in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries gave rise to this confusion? Taking up these questions, John O'Malley works out a remarkable guide to the intellectual and historical developments behind the concepts of Catholic reform, the Counter Reformation, and, in his felicitous term, Early Modern Catholicism. The result is the single best overview of scholarship on Catholicism in early modern Europe, delivered in a pithy, lucid, and entertaining style. Although its subject is fundamental to virtually all other issues relating to sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe, there is no other book like this in any language. More than a historiographical review, "Trent and All That" makes a compelling case for subsuming the present confusion of terminology under the concept of Early Modern Catholicism. The term indicates clearly what this book so eloquently demonstrates: that Early Modern Catholicism was an aspect of early modern history, which it strongly influenced and by which it was itself in large measure determined. As a reviewer commented, O'Malley's discussion of terminology "opens up a different way of conceiving of the whole history of Catholicism between the Reformation and the French Revolution."

Writing about the Renaissance can be a daunting task. Not only do scholars disagree on what the Renaissance is, but they also disagree on whether or not it even took place. Margaret L. King's richly illustrated social history of the Renaissance succeeds as a trusted resource, introducing readers to Europe between 1300–1700, as well as to the problems of cultural renewal. A Short History of the Renaissance in Europe includes a detailed discussion of Burckhardt as well as new content on European contact with the Islamic world. This new edition also provides improved coverage of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations. "Focus" features provide fascinating insights into the Renaissance era, and "Voices" sections introduce a wealth of primary sources. King's engaging narrative is enhanced by over 100 images, statistical tables, timelines, a glossary, and suggested readings.

The Reformation was the seismic event in European history over the past 1000 years, and one which tore the medieval world apart. Not just European religion, but thought, culture, society, state systems, personal relations - everything - was turned upside down. Just about everything which followed in European history can be traced back in some way to the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation which it provoked. The Reformation is where the modern world painfully and dramatically began, and MacCulloch's great history of it is recognised as the best modern account.

For more information about this title please visit www.atlasofeuropeanvalues.com. Who are the Europeans? How do they think? What values do they hold dear? What binds them and what divides them? This atlas summarizes the outcomes of the European Values Study, combined with results from the World Values Survey, two projects that have measured values over the past three decades. The European Values Study project is run by researchers from 33 countries and is administered by Tilburg University, the Netherlands. The Atlas presents European ideas and beliefs in the form of graphs, charts and maps. Values such as democracy, freedom, equality, human dignity and solidarity are held by almost all Europeans, but the survey points to differing views about marriage, religion, work and such topics as euthanasia, happiness, sexuality and death. This unique Atlas covers all European nations from Iceland to Turkey, from Portugal to the Ukraine. It graphically illustrates the rich diversity that is Europe.

In the fifty years after the Constitution wassigned in 1787, New York City grew from a port town of 30,000 to a metropolisof over half a million residents. This rapid development transformed a oncetightknit community and its religious experience. These effects were felt byTrinity Episcopal Church, which had presented itself as a uniting influence inNew York, that connected all believers in social unity in the late colonialera. As the city grew larger, more impersonal, and socially divided, churchesreformed around race and class-based neighborhoods. Trinity's original visionof uniting the community was no longer possible.In Four Steeples over the City Streets, Kyle T. Bulthuis examines thehistories of four famous church congregations in early Republic New YorkCity—Trinity Episcopal, John Street Methodist, Mother Zion African Methodist,and St. Philip's (African) Episcopal—to uncover the lived experience of thesehistorical subjects, and just how religious experience and social changeconnected in the dynamic setting of early Republic New York.Drawing on a range of primary sources, Four Steeples over the City Streetsrevealshow these city churches responded to these transformations from colonial timesto the mid-nineteenth century. Bulthuis also adds new dynamics to the storiesof well-known New Yorkers such as John Jay, James Harper, and Sojourner Truth.More importantly,Four Steeples over the City Streets connects issues ofrace, class, and gender, urban studies, and religious experience, revealing howthe city shaped these churches, and how their respective religious traditionsshaped the way they reacted to the city.
