For more than 30 years George Williams' monumental The Radical Reformation has been an essential reference work for historians of early modern Europe, narrating in rich, interpretative detail the interconnected stories of radical groups operating at the margins of the mainline Reformation. In its scope--spanning all of Europe from Spain to Poland, from Denmark to Italy--and its erudition, The Radical Reformation is without peer. Now in paperback format, Williams' magnum opus should be considered for any college or university-level course on the Reformation.

About the Author:

George Huntston Williams


“No other book can match Willliams’ authoritative volume. For presenting the kaleidoscope of sixteenth-century breakaway individuals and groups, nothing comparable exists now nor will be seen for many decades to come.... The author’s use of the primary and secondary sources is unequaled, his mastery of both classical and contemporary languages unexcelled, and the spread of proofs beyond challenge.”

Journal of Ecumenical Studies

“This opus magnum is an expensive, but indispensable tool for Reformation historians, indeed for all church historians.... Williams once again offers an encyclopedic view of the radical Reformation rather than a definitive comprehensive history.... Illustrations and extensive indices make this massive work the kind of tool which Reformation historians will cherish.”

The Catholic Historical Review

“Access to this enriched vein of information has also been improved by the addition of the remarkable 200-page apparatus which concludes the volume, consisting of a bibliography and separate indexes of source documents; confessions, catechisms and articles of faith; colloquies, councils and synods; scriptural references; and subjects.”

Journal of Ecclesiastical History

“It is given that this edition of The Radical Reformation will stand as an unparalleled monument in Reformation research. A synoptic project of this scope and erudition will probably never be undertaken again, and, as such, access to this new edition is simply a must for scholars of the Radical Reformation.... This book makes a real contribution to scholarship by bringing clear attention to the non-Germanic aspects of the Radical Reformation. This makes it valuable for survey research as well as specialized study. Its extensively expanded indexes assure that it will for years to come be the starting point for thesis research. All who pay attention to the history of the sixteenth century will be grateful to Williams for this crowning labor of love.”

History of Christianity

“This work, with its vast wealth of detail beyond the great confessional streams, is important not only for Reformation studies. It has been a crucial contribution to the reappraisal of the hermeneutics of the sixteenth century, religious historiography and the contemporary reassessment of the middle ages and renaissance.”
