"fascinating analyses [...] these essays will be of interest to anyone interested in the history of early modern religion; among other things, they make useful, nuanced contributions to the debate on whether the Reformation fostered the disenchantment of the world."
Jeffrey R. Watt, University of Mississippi. In: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 65, No. 1 (January 2014), pp. 184-185.
