This book considers the Reformed churches of Europe in an international and comparative context from around 1540 to 1620. Graeme Murdock discusses how Calvinism operated as an international movement by looking at links between Reformed churches, communities, and states, and then goes on to explain what Calvinist churches across Europe stood for. Murdock focuses on how Calvinists sought to purify the practice of Christian religion, and to renew European politics, society and culture.

Industry Reviews

'Written with economy and admirable clarity, [it] covers an international canvas with authority and with a sympathetic eye.' - Diarmaid N. J. MacCulloch, St Cross, Oxford 'A valuable addition to the literature in a subject not particularly well covered in English.' - Professor Andrew Pettegree, University of St Andrews, Scotland 'The writing is crisp and concise but rich in fact and acecdotal detail. The geographic scope of the book is also impressive...will make a good teaching text for upper-level undergraduates or master's students'. - Carrie Euler, Ecclesiastical History
