Assessing early modern literature and England's Long Reformation, this book challenges the notion that the English Reformation ended in the sixteenth century, or even by the seventeenth century.
Contributions by literary scholars and historians of religion put these two disciplines in critical conversation with each other, in order to examine a complex, messy, and long-drawn-out process of reformation that continued well beyond the significant political and religious upheavals of the sixteenth century. The aim of this conversation is to generate new perspectives on the constant remaking of the Reformation-or Reformations, as some scholars prefer to characterize the multiple religious upheavals and changes, both Catholic and Protestant-of the early modern period. This interdisciplinary book makes a major contribution to debates about the nature and length of England's Long Reformation.
Early Modern Literature and England's Long Reformation is essential reading for scholars and students considering the interconnections between literature and religion in the early modern period.
The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the journal Reformation.
