Description


In early modern Europe, pressure from the Protestant and Catholic Reformations, the growing might of the Ottoman Empire, and New World encounters meant that an unprecedented number of people were confronted by new beliefs and changing religious identities. Conversions brings together leading scholars from across the disciplines of literature, history, art and architectural history to investigate the interlinked transformations of gender and religious identity in this turbulent period.

A lively Afterword by Professor Matthew Dimmock (University of Sussex) drives home the lasting legacy of the Reformations and the contemporary urgency of the collected chapters.
