(Catalog of the Exhibition by Valerie R. Hotchkiss and David Price) It is equally true that the Reformation was inspired and defined by the Bible and that the Bible was reshaped by the intellectual, political and cultural forces of the Reformation. In this book, a distinguished scholar - whose contributions to the field of religious studies have won him wide renown - explores this relationship, examining both the role of the Bible in the Reformation and the effect of the Reformation on the text of the Bible, Biblical studies, preaching and exegesis, and European culture in general.
