This book offers a brief, but comprehensive, account of religious belief and experience in Europe between the Westphalia settlements in 1648 and the French Revolution. The book is organized around large European regions such as Central and Northwestern Europe (including Britain), Southern Europe and North and Eastern Europe. Within each chapter Professor Ward discusses the churches in their political, social and intellectual context. With its maps, glossary and guide to further reading, this promises to be a major aid to students of Christianity under the ancien regime.
