Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Commerce and Print in the Early Reformation contains the table of contents, list of maps and illustrations, list of abbreviations and a prologue. The 1520s, a watershed decade of change in Christian Europe, began in many places with the condemnation and public burning of books authored by Martin Luther. By the time the decade drew to its close the schismatic consequences of the innovation that Luther initiated were irreparable. Diffusion of Luther’s views, broadly identified in Germany as the neue Lehre (‘new learning’ or ‘new doctrine’), was accomplished by diverse means. Focusing on print culture and links between propagandists, typographers, and northern Europe's merchant milieu, the book investigates dispersal and suppression of religious innovation in the 1520s and expands the interpretative scope for Reformation studies beyond national, political, or religious contexts.

Keywords: commerce; early reformation; northern Europe's merchant milieu; print culture; propagandists; Reformation studies; religious innovation; typographers
