Reviews

...a scintillating state-of-the-art survey of the Reformation... a marvellous collection of essays. * Henry A. Jefferies, Iris h Historical Studies *
The Oxford Illustrated History of the Reformation is a beautifully presented single volume overview of the Reformation, including sections devoted to its medieval background and contemporary legacy. Its seven chapters, authored by leading reformation scholars, are lavishly adorned with reproductions of books, maps, paintings, statues, and relics that bring the text to life. The book is learned, although unencumbered by footnotes, being cognizant of the latest developments in reformation research, and sometimes challenging them...the resulting work is informative, readable, and authoritative. * Benjamin B. Saunders, Reading Religion *
The illustrations are fascinating. * Robert Tanitch, Mature Times *
Very well illustrated with vivid and relevant images. * The Irish Catholic *
This is a fine book, beautifully produced, providing an easily accessible distillation of some of the best recent scholarship of the Reformation. A work of this kind is a vital resource for anyone concerned to understand what ideas, events and convictions compelled the sea changes in Christianity that took place in the sixteenth century, and, no less important, to understand the repercussions of these changes which are still felt today. * Anne Dillon, Times Literary Supplement *

Compelling collection...Brilliantly assembled by Peter Marshall * Literary Review, Paul Lay *
it bears comparison with the very best studies and compendia... a a hearty 'bravo' is in order * Herald, Jonathan Wright *
Wonderful... It's a huge achievement by Marshall, and by OUP, that cleverly gets the ball rolling head of the 500th anniversary of Luther's posting of his Ninety-five Theses * Oxford Today *
This is a classic Illustrated Oxford History volume: its wealth of pictures forms an instructive rather than merely decorative complement to a text from some of the leading experts in the field, who present a fine panorama of current thinking on this formative era for the modern West. * Diarmaid MacCulloch, University of Oxford, and author of A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years *
An outstanding work of church history. * Paul Richardson, Church of England Newspaper *
