The Reformation which engulfed  Europe in the sixteenth century was one of the most highly-charged, bloody and transformative periods in its history. Ever since, it has remained one of the most contested. In All Things Made New, Diarmaid MacCulloch  illuminates the inexhaustible variety of the Reformation: a delightful mix of writings on angels, Protestant opinions about the Virgin Mary and such diverse personalities as William Byrd, John Calvin and the extraordinary seventeenth-century forger Robert Ware. Building upon his classic, definitive work Reformation: Europe’s House Divided, this is one of our finest historians at his best.
