In the 16th century, Europe broke apart and all religion, politics, and society changed. Oxford scholar MacCulloch masterfully reconstructs Christianity's greatest "fault line" since the Roman Empire's demise. Offering vivid portraits of the main players---reformers, popes, and rulers---he explains why their ideas altered the European landscape and traces echoing influences in modern America. 792 pages, hardcover from Viking.
