"An invaluable resource for students of the Reformation era." -- Alister E. McGrath, University of Oxford "The beautifully produced maps of this atlas - along with informative time lines, well-chosen illustrations, and clear, accessible prose - make this book an excellent contribution to 500th anniversary commemorations of the Reformation. All who are concerned about the fate of Christianity today will benefit from this illuminating window into the crises, the renewal, and the worldwide effects of the Reformation era." -- Mark A. Noll, University of Notre Dame "Not only the `when' but also the `where' of past events brings our history into meaningful focus. This volume provides a running overview of the cauldrons of our heritage in the years leading to the Reformation, the sixteenth century itself, and elements of its impact on the seventeenth century, alongside clearly detailed maps. These maps make concrete the spaces in which the epoch-making unfolding of the Reformation took place. Scholars and beginners alike will gain a clearer understanding by placing the places of the Reformation into their geographical and chronological frameworks. A valuable tool for teaching and learning, formal and informal." -- Robert Kolb, Emeritus, Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis
