The birthpangs of Protestant England -First Edition
'...a masterly study.' Alister McGrath, Theological Book Review '...a splendid read.' J.J.Scarisbrick, TLS '...profound, witty...of immense value.' David Loades, History Today Historians have always known that the English Reformation was more than a simple change of religious belief and practice. It altered the political constitution and, according to Max Weber, the attitudes and motives which governed the getting and investment of wealth, facilitating the rise of capitalism and industrialisation. This book investigates further implications of the transformative religious changes of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries for the nation, the town, the family, and for their culture."
This copy is in excellent condition throughout. It is a rare, hard to find academic book, so will appeal to scholars and students. There are a few dust marks to the page and a gift-aid label stuck to the first end paper.
