Fourth of a five volume history of the Church, this book covers the events leading up to the religious revolt of the 16th century. The reformation played itself out differently in Germany, France, England, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia and all of the major developments are covered. At the same time the Church was undergoing great internal reforms and opposing the spread of Protestantism, it undertook missions throughout the World and fought off the Turkish threat in the Mediterranean.
