Summary Our historical understanding of the Reformation in northern Europe has tended to privilege the idea of disruption and innovation over continuity--yet even the most powerful reformation movements drew on and exchanged ideas with earlier cultural and religious practices. This volume attempts to right the balance, bringing together a roster of experts to trace the continuities between the medieval and early modern period in the Nordic realm, while enabling us to see the Reformation and its changes in a new light.
