This volume brings together reformation and reception studies by exploring the relationship between reformations on the European continent and in Britain. The 11 papers shed new light on familiar associations, draw attention to under-explored relationships, and identify how British reception in turn contributed to continued reform on the continent. Different aspects of reception from biblical translation and book history to popular politics andtheological polemic are addressed. The volume also prompts further questions regarding British integration and the perception (and invention) of England's 'exceptional' status.
Dr. Polly Ha is Research Fellow, Clare Hall at the University of Cambridge. Patrick Collinson is Regius Professor Emeritus of Modern History at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of the British Academy.
