Sencillamente extraordinario. Claridad expositiva combinada con una brillante redacción sin llegar a la pedantería. Muy recomendable para adentrarse en los entresijos de la reforma: religión y política, o dicho de otra manera inquietudes espirituales y su relación con el poder temporal.

This book is a classic introduction to the Reformation. Elton meticulously takes the reader through the principal reformers (Luther, Zwingli, the radicals and Calvin) and the response of the Catholic Church. He also centers attention on Charles V in his struggles to push back Protestantism and preserve the Holy Roman Empire. It is a well-written narrative that grips the reader’s interest.
