Review:

An excellent addition to world history shelves, Reformation and Early Modern Europe: A Guide to Research is an anthology of eighteen scholarly essays by learned authors discussing confessional, regional, social, and cultural trends in early modern Europe, especially 1500-1700 C.E. Each essayist draws upon extensive research and his or her expertise in the field; topics include art history; religious traditions ranging from Lutheran to Reformed to early modern Catholicism; regional paradigm shifts in France, Italy, England, Spain, Switzerland, and the Netherlands; and much more. ''It should be recognized that cultural history does not always (or even usually) follow the lead or intentions of the cultural leaders or intellectuals. Important events often run directly counter to intent and expectation. Witchcraft historians have spent a lot of energy examining those figures who openly and explicitly opposed witchcraft trials... It has, however, turned out to be difficult to find any direct influence of the skeptic upon actual witchcraft trials.'' An excellent addition to world history. --Midwest Book Review, May 2008

As the third guide to Reformation literature and related topics published in a quarter century, this work reflects the displacement of older historiographic trends by new ones, and the emergence of digital resources that have made some types of research easier. Essays reflect both developments, although some lean more to historiography and others to bibliography. The book is divided into ''Confessional Trends,'' ''Regional Trends,'' and ''Social and Cultural Trends.'' Absent is any essay covering the Reformation as a transdenominationl and trans-European phenomenon. Perhaps the move to lived experience and microhistory noted by more than one contributor helps explain this omission. Expanded geographic coverage gives more attention to central Europe as a whole, but topics once covered, like cities in the Reformation and pamphlet warfare, have been omitted, possibly because of limited space. That said, the essays are solid and useful. Some address phenomena like witchcraft, recent studies of which are fruitful and full of new insights. The volume covers gender in greater depth than in previous guides. Even long-established literatures, like those covering Lutheranism and the Reformed tradition, are the subjects of new work expanding the boundaries of inquiry. The Reformation no longer appears as the preserve of just a few giants. The Radicals too receive new attention, and the book addresses the attempt to find a new term to replace Counter-Reformation when describing Catholic thought and practice in this period. A very useful article examines the vexing question of how to understand ''popular religion.'' All essays conclude with extensive bibliographies (most incorporate online resources). The work lacks an index; a brief index of major concepts covered by multiple contributors would have been useful. Nevertheless, this is a worthwhile road map to a very lively field of research and teaching. Summing Up Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers. --CHOICE, June 2008

Reformation and Early Modern Europe: A Guide to Research continues to provide an excellent introduction to the scholarship and research trends concerning the study of the Reformation period in Europe. Both newcomers to Reformation studies and experienced scholars will find it a useful tool in their research and teaching. --David Elton Gay, Sixteenth Century Journal, 2009

The overwhelming strengths of this invaluable collection of essays and bibliographies mean it should find an accessible location on the shelf of every serious student and scholar of Reformation and early modern history. --Church History, September 2008
