In the early twentieth century B. J. Kidd put together a fully representative collection of continental Reformation writings in French, Latin, and English translation. Kidd's work was a standard in classrooms for years. The work offers representative source documents for the Lutheran and Reformed reformations on continental Europe. Included are documents predating the Lutheran reformation, through the Ninety-five Theses, to the Peace of Augsburg (1555). The Reformed Party is represented by Zwingli, Farel, and Calvin, including the disputes with Anabaptists. Kidd closes the collection with a section on Calvinism beyond Geneva, with representative documents from France, the Netherlands, and Scotland.
This book presents a wide range of documents, some from unpublished manuscripts, relating to the Continental Reformation. Rather than focusing purely on leading reformers and their writings, this collection places the ideas and the figures themselves within the broader context of early modern society. By relying heavily on eye-witness accounts, the texts present the Reformation as a vibrant and violent movement shattering late medieval Christendom. The documents provide the reader with a window into the maelstrom of religious change and the host of complex issues (political, socio-economic, gender) swept along in its wake.
