Grade 6-9-The Renaissance brought myriad changes to the lives of Europeans. Knowledge from the Greeks and Romans that had been lost was rediscovered, new lands were explored, and great strides were made in science. As a result, people began to question their existing institutions, particularly the Church, and religious thinkers began to level criticism and push for change. The long process became known as the Reformation. This book is not an introduction to the period, but rather an analysis of its causes, events, and results. It also traces its lasting influences over the centuries. The table of contents gives three major divisions, which are chronological, but the author tends to skip back and forth between the Reformation, the present, and the centuries in between to illustrate various points, which can be very confusing. Numerous well-placed, clear photographs, paintings, and maps, all reproduced in full color, add a great deal to the presentation. The lack of a bibliography and the inclusion of quotations without citations are shortcomings. Sarah Flowers's The Reformation (Lucent, 1996), while lacking color illustration, is much easier to read and understand.
