Abstract

This open university reader is a wide-ranging inter-displinary collection of material illustrating the relationship between cultural change and religious belief in 16th century Europe. It contains more than 80 extracts drawn from a variety of genres including political, religious, philosophical and legal writing, diaries, letters, plays, poems and fiction. Some never previously published, others which have not been reprinted since their original appearance in the 16 century, and a number which are translated into modern English for the first time. "Culture and Belief in Europe 1450-1600" includes writing from such renowned thinkers as Erasmus, Luther, Thoma Aquinas, Michiavelli, and Sir Thomas More. Works of literature also feature extensively, and writings from Cervantes, John Dee, Edmund Spencer, and Sir Phillip Sidney amongst many others are all to be found here.
