In the initial stages of that controversy the response to Luther was widespread & genuine. Gradually however, the dissidents divided, & finally, religion became involved in the power politics of the time.

Ultimately, then, the Reformation was as successful as it was because political considerations added their weight to the religious ones. Using this framework, always stressing the interaction of ideas & society, Dr Hillerbrand explores the major ideas & forces of the Reformation. As he weaves his narrative, he shows the Reformation to be the cohesive phenomenon of the early 16th century, the movement that drew together religious, theological & political forces.
