About this item

This study of the impact of Christianity on 16th-century Europe focuses on the Westphalian prince-bishopric of Münster, seeking to understand why Catholics and various denominations of Protestants lived in peace together, unlike the religious violence of the rest of the region during the Age of Religious Wars. The study explores how political and community acceptance of religious pluralism developed, looking at specific aspects of beliefs and liturgical practices, such as modifying rites to accommodate dissenters and encouraging Catholics and Protestants to have their services in the same church building.
