A new translation (containing the author's last improvements) by Henry Beveridge, esq. advocate, and H. White. With linked table of contents.

Merle D’Aubigne published two series of historical works for which he is most famous. The first was The History of the Reformation in the Sixteenth Century, a five volume set containing twenty books and covering every country in Europe and every major figure of that time. He stated, “I believe that the Reformation is a work of God; this must have been already seen. Still, I hope to be impartial in tracing its history. Of the principal Roman Catholic actors in this great drama, for example, of Leo X, Albert of Magdeburg, Charles V, and Doctor Eck—I believe I have spoken more favorably than the greater part of historians have done.” The second series was The History of The Reformation in the Times of Calvin and was originally published as sixteen books bound in eight volumes. 
Delmarva Publications is pleased to present D’Aubigne’s The History of the Reformation in the Sixteenth Century in one complete volume. We have also published all sixteen books of his second work, The History of The Reformation in the Times of Calvin in another volume.
Each of the five volumes contains four books:
Volume 1: Book 1 is about the state of matters before the Reformation. Book 2 deals with Luther’s youth, conversion, and his first labors. Book 3 is about indulgences and Luther’s Theses, and Book 4 recounts Luther’s dealings with the legate. 
Volume 2: Book 5 deals with the discussion of Leipsic. Book 6 is about the Bull of Rome. Book 7 covers the Diet of Worms, and Book 8 deals with the Swiss nation during the reformation. 
Volume 3: Book 9 involves the first reforms which were brought about as a result of Luther’s actions. Book 10 deals with the agitation, and progress of the reformation. Book 11 looks at the different divisions in Switzerland and Germany. Book 12 reviews the Reformation in France. 
Volume 4: Book 13 looks at the great conflicts, protests, and the conference brought about between the years 1526 to 1529 as a result of the Reformation. Book 14 looks at the Augsburg Confession. Book 15 is an in-depth view of the Swiss reformation and its conquests, while Book 16 examines the catastrophe of the reformation in the same country.
Volume 5: The last four books deal mainly with the nation of England. Book 17 looks at the state of England before the Reformation. Book 18 is about the revival of the church in England as a result of the movements of reform on the continent. Book 19 focuses on William Tyndale and the English New Testament as well as the court of Rome. Lastly, book 20 looks at Henry’s two divorces and the final progress of the Reformation in England.
We have included a master table of contents which is linked to all 5 volumes and all 20 books. At the beginning of each volume there is a more detailed table of contents along with a description of each chapter.
