The development of Protestant piety in early Evangelical prayerbooks
MetadataShow full item record
This project explores popular piety at the time of the European Reformations through the study of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Protestant prayerbooks, pursuing a historical contextual approach to spirituality integrating social and religious history in order to yield a deeper understanding of both the history of Christian piety and church history in general. The study explores thirty-two German, Latin, and English prayerbooks from medieval and post-Reformation Catholic as well as from Lutheran, Anglican, and Puritan traditions, examining them as spiritual texts with social and theological significance which helped disseminate popular understandings of Protestant piety.
