Drawing upon criminal court records, trial manuscripts and contemporary journals this book explores the impact of censorship on religious reform in German cities during the Reformation. The study argues that censorship, whilst routinely compromised and often circumvented, nonetheless profoundly influenced how communities understood the Reformation and its message.
