Description - The Two Reformations by Heiko A. Oberman
Oberman demonstrates how the simplifications and rigidities of modern historiography have obscured the existential spirits of such great figures as Luther and Calvin. He explores the debt of both Luther and Calvin to medieval religious thought and the impact of diverse features of "the long 15th century" - including the Black Death, nominalism, humanism, and the Conciliar Movement - on the Reformation.
