9780198203261: For the Sake of Simple Folk: Popular Propaganda for the German Reformation (Clarendon Paperbacks)

R.W. Scribner's pioneering work analyzes the forms of popular propaganda aimed at the illiterate and semi-literate during the German Reformation and reproduces many of the prints which still survive in Germany. A new Introduction and an additional chapter in this edition advance original interpretations of these illustrations, revealing how visual propaganda both exploited and participated in popular belief and the coarser aspects of popular culture.

About the Author:

R. W. Scribner, Reader in the Social History of Early Modern Europe and Fellow, Clare College, Cambridge.

Review:


"The reproduction of such a formidable body of 'documentation' in the text is a major achievement....[An] important and pioneering study."--Journal of Ecclesiastical History


"[T]he republication of this important study, by means of photomechanical reproduction, is welcome. Moreover, Scribner has updated the new edition with an introduction and a postscript which include significant information for anyone using the text."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"The importance of Scribner's study strikes the reader on the very first page....Scribner's book is important beyond the narrow confines of religious propaganda. The book will be of interest to literary and art historians, religious scholars and cultural materialists."--Resaissance Quarterly


"Superb--a must in every Reformation course!"--Larissa J. Taylor, Colby College
