From peasants to princes, no one was untouched by the spiritual and intellectual upheaval of the 16th century. Martin Luther's challenge to church authority forced Christians to examine their beliefs, while geographical and scientific discoveries challenged the unity of Christendom as a community. The subsequent territorial divisions, fed by dynastic rivalries and military changes, fundamentally altered the relations between ruler and ruled. Chronicling these dramatic changes, Thomas More, Shakespeare, Montaigne, and Cervantes created works that continue to resonate with us. Paris-based Reformation scholar Mark Greengrass gives us a rich tapestry of early modern Europe that fosters a deeper understanding of its identity today.

"A model of scholarly dedication.... Almost every page has a memorable nugget, from the invention of the world atlas to the scatological sermons of Martin Luther."—Sunday Times (London)

"Offers insight into the extraordinary turmoil that the average European endured in an era typically described through reverent admiration for art, architecture, and intellectual development. Using the histories of well-chosen cities and countries as examples for each discussion, Greengrass reveals that it was 'curiosity [that] destroyed Christendom'."—Publisher's Weekly
