Over the last twenty years research on the Reformation in Germany has shifted both chronologically and thematically toward an interest in the ‘long’ or ‘delayed’ Reformations. Whilst this focus has resulted in many fascinating new insights, it has also led to the relative neglect of the early Reformation movement. Consisting of seven previously published essays, three new chapters and an historical afterword, Scott’s volume-put together with the explicit purpose of encouraging scholars to reengage with the early ‘storm years’ of the German Reformation-serves as a timely reminder of the importance of the early decades of the sixteenth century.
