Summary

Global Reformations offers a sustained, comparative, and interdisciplinary exploration of religious transformations in the early modern world.

The volume explores global developments and tracks the many ways in which Reformation movements shaped relations of Christians with other Christians, and also with Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and aboriginal groups in the Americas. Contributions explore the negotiations, tensions, and contacts that developed across social, gender, and religious lines in different parts of the globe, focusing on how different convictions about religious reform and approaches to it shaped social action and cross-confessional encounters. The first volume to explore the convergence of religious reform, global expansion, and governmental consolidation in the early modern world and examine the Reformation as a global phenomenon, it asks how a global frame complicates our understanding of what the Reformation itself was and offers a unique and up-to-date examination of the Reformation that broadens out readers’ understanding in creative and useful ways.

Demonstrating new research and innovative approaches in the study of cross-cultural contact during the early modern period, this volume is ideal for advanced undergraduates and graduates of Early Modern History, Religious History, Women & Gender Studies and Global History.
