Peace in the Post-Reformation by John Bossy
Book DescriptionChristians are supposed to love their neighbours, including their enemies. This is never easy. When feud and honour are common realities, it is even harder than usual. This book sketches the history of peace-making between people (not countries) as an activity of churches or of Christianity between the Reformation and the eighteenth century. The story is recounted in four countries (Italy, France, Germany, and England) and in several religious settings (including Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Church of England, and Calvinist). Each version is a variation upon a theme: what the author calls a 'moral tradition' which contrasts, as a continuing imperative, with the novelties of theory and practice introduced by the sixteenth-century reformers. In general the topic has much to say about the destinies of Christianity in each country, and more widely, and strikes a chord which will resonate in both the social and the religious history of the West.

Giordano Bruno and the Embassy Affair, Paperback (July 2002)

Under the Molehill, Paperback (July 2002)
In the 16th century, Elizabethan London was uneasy: would France side with Protestant England or with Catholic Europe? This volume describes the espionage operation that was devised to find the answer, and speculates on the identity of the mole in the French ambassador's household.
